Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Most important is to achieve a strict control over hypothyroidism, which can be done by maintaining TSH level around 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms of that condition are in check. Weight gain is a clear sign of uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Therefore, unless TSH is maintained at above levels, your efforts will not succeed. Plus you will have take a balanced but restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on your ideal body weight (not the present weight). You have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made of maida. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Plus exercise for at least an hour or more per day. Since there is no mention of the height and weight, it is difficult to know how serious is the situation. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose of 230 mg is very high, which clearly indicates that you have developed diabetes. Please check your after food glucose and HbA1c% and come back. If one has diabetes and it is not in check, there is a possibility of blood glucose level going up following exercise as more glucose is pushed in blood to meet extra demand by muscles. Since there is a lack of insulin, levels remain high. If you are already a diabetic person, then with treatment you should be able to maintain fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Otherwise, there can be serious long term consequences of that condition. Thanks.

Hi, lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You can take eggs regularly even the whole egg is better than just the white part. Because the whole egg gives almost 7 to g of protein, Unless you have high lipids, there is no reason to leave egg yolk. But most important is to achieve a strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. For a person with hypothyroidism following precautions are necessary. 1) TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, that will help in having a good healthy life. 2) Regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day is necessary. 3) Avoid soy beans, soy containing food products. 4) Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. 5) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, and foods made out of maida. 6) Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Curd rice is quite fine, but junk foods are bad. Her weight is less if her height is as mentioned 5 feet and 2 inches. It should be closer to 57 kgs. Thanks.

Hi, During pregnancy my Thyroid went quite high hence and suggested intake of Thyronorm 50. It has been 1 year since my delivery and in the latest Thyroid test report, it came out to be 10.5, which I believe is just too high. What should I do? Is it risky? I normally prefer taking Homeopath / Ayurved but since Thyroid level is so high, should I firstly control it through an Allopathic treatment? Please suggest. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism that you have developed has to be treated by adequate dosage of Levothyroxine. Since TSH is 10.5 mU/L, it is clear that present dosage is not adequate. When on treatment TSH should be controlled around 3 to 4 mU/AL for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Madam please understand that hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disease. This hormone is required for various important metabolic activities of the body every day. Since your thyroid gland is not able to produce it, there is a need to supplement the same from outside daily and that too for lifetime. You may be liking homepathy or ayurveda, but for this condition there is no alternative but to use thyroxine in adequate dosage for LIFETIME. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the information given I understand that she has very high blood glucose level. Plus there appears to be urinary tract infection. She needs urgent treatment. Therefore, if you are interested in getting online assistance, then please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with following details :Patients age, weight, height, fasting, after food glucose levels, HbA1c%, lipid profile details, BP readings, details of any medication being taken, extent of daily exercise or physical activity and dietary pattern. Based on all those details I will be able to advise appropriate treatment, which will help in controlling her diabetes and urinary tract infection. Or else please contact your local doctor and start treatment urgently. Do not waste time. It is not good to allow high blood glucose levels to remain for very long. Please decide early. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Both Tab Productive PCOS & Cap Efem are both not specific to PCOS. First one is a combination of some vitaminn and antioxidants Cap Efem is containing primrose oil. Both these are not having any specific role in PCOS. For PCOS depending upon symptoms and findings some times certain hormones, clomifen citrate or metformin are used. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Honey is similar to cane sugar or regular sugar that one uses. It is rapidly converted to glucose and levels in blood go up rapidly. It is not good for a person with diabetes. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given In that there is no mention about how is your blood glucose and BP controlled, what are the drugs being taken for those conditions and their dosage. Plus no mention about weight, diet and exercise etc. Plus I am unable to understand why are you asking about taking 300 mg of Thyroxine. That is a hormone, only used in treating hypothyroidism. It is used in microgram strength. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disease. This hormone is required at every level in body metabolic activities, hence if our thyroid gland is not able to produce, then it has to be supplemented form outside on daily basis for lifetime. There is no cure in this condition. Some practitioner may be claiming that it can be cured, such claims are not true. Thanks.
