I am diabetic and also I have some white liquid coming from my inside skin of penis.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. First and foremost it is necessary to conrol blood glucose very strictly, with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. The second point, it looks like fungal infection of the glance or prepuce. It needs to be treated with antifungal drugs. Thanks.

lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. Weight loss in a diabetes patient occurs when blood glucose is uncontrolled and there is excess glucose lost through urine. Hence, primary need is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Once having achieved this then the efforts to add some weight can be successful. Since there are no details given like weight, height, fasting, PP glucose levels, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise and drugs with dosage, no specific suggestions can be made. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Madam for treating hypothyroidism the only treatment is to supplement the deficient hormone thyroxine in adequate quantity every day. This treatment has to be taken for lifetime. There is no short cut. Amla has no role to play in controlling thyroid related issues. You may still use it along with honey and lemon (amla & lemon both give Vitamin C). But there is no role in relation to hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose seems to be higher than normal (70 to 100 mg/100 ml), where as PP is quite less. So there is no diabetes. However, please check the blood glucose periodically. Thanks.

Isake saath aap ka present diet pattern, extent of daily exercise isaka bhi detail chahiye.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, Thanks for the query. In case of confirmed hypothyroidism (ith TSH > 10 mU/L), treatment with Levothyroxine has to be started. Since there is no mention of any values it is difficult to give any specific suggestion. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Swelling of legs can occur due to many reasons including problems with heart, kidney, liver or thyroid. Another important aspect is looking at your weight and height with a BMI of 35.77 kgs/M2, you are having grade 2 obesity, which also can lead to swelling of legs. My suggestion is please get your thyroid hormones tested and see if TSH is abnormal. Plus if you make specific attempt to reduce weight, that will help in taking care of this problem. Your ideal weight should be about 53 kgs, where as you are 30 kgs extra. This itself can be a major problem. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query, For patients with hypothyroidism only soy beans and soy containing products are to be avoided. All other foods, fruits and seeds are fine. You can definitely take all those things mentioned. Most important is your TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hempglobin 9.9 g / 100 ml is on the lower side, suggesting you have anemia (mostly iron deficiency). ESR 43 mm is suggestive of some pathological process is on. It does not show any specific disease. As regards TSH being 9 mU/L and taking treatment for only 1.5 years, then stopping it after TSH was normal, is not at all advisable. Once treatment is stopped, TSH is bound to go up. If you are thinking of having a baby, then it is essential to bring TSH <2 mU/L before conception and during the pregnancy it must be maintained around 2 mU/L, for proper fetal development and desired outcome of pregnancy. Please also get your Anti TPO antibodies checked. Because presence of any autoimmune process in the system may also lead to increase in ESR. Thanks.

I have suffered from thyroid and diabetic. I am taking 100 mg eltroxin for thyroid daily and 14 units in morning and 8 unit of humalog mix for debit along with 1000 mg glycomet trio forte 2.i want to stop injection and to be only on intake medicines. Any solution or suggestions?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The very fact that you have been advised to take Insulin injections for controlling blood glucose, suggests that only oral drugs seem to be not working effectively. This happens in persons whose blood glucose is exceptionally high to begin with. In some cases it is possible to do away with Insulin after some 3 to 4 months, once a strict control is achieved. Since there is no mention about your current glucose levels and HbA1c%, it is difficult to comment. Unless all the details are made available like: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, BP readings, lipid profile and exact dosage of various medications being taken, Based on those details, I will be able to asses the situation and then decide whether only oral treatment is a possibility. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. While flying towards India, (going east words), take your oral antidiabetic tablets just before the food is being served or with it. If you are only on oral anti-diabetics then it is not so difficult. But if on Insulin then scheduling the dose becomes more critical. You may need comparatively a lesser dose (by a few units. Take the injection only when food is being served around, not too early. With oral tablets it is not so difficult. Since flying east words make the day shorter, dosage may have to be adjusted based on food intake. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To control blood glucose apart from taking Insulin and tablets, dietary control and regular exercise are equally important. The reason blood gkucose goes up is because the food intake is high or there are foods which get converted to glucose quickly are more in your diet. Plus there needs to be a proper adjustment of dosage of the medicines being taken. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if not well controlled causes multiple symptoms including hair fall & dry hair, dry skin. With adequate dose of thyroxine, TSH should be brought down around 3 to 4 m/L then only you will be free from all the symptoms. Hair fall takes a bit longer to stop. Treatment is for lifetime. Should not be stopped in between. TSH should be checked periodically to ensure that it is maintained as mentioned earlier. There's no special diet. You have to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads & fruits. Always use whole grain flour for roti & chapati. Do not eat items made from maida. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fruits which can be consumed are papaya, water melon, orange, sweet lime, apple, pear, guava, pomegranate, other melons. Fruits to be avoided or taken in a very small quantity are banana, mango, chikkoo, grapes and custard apple. It always advised to eat the whole fruit. Juices are not good as all the fiber contents are removed. Another importan aspect is it is necessary to achieve a strict blood glucose control before consuming the fruits. Plus not more than 2 servings a day. One can take more of green leafy vegetables. Thanks.
