I am 31 years old female. I have thyroid problem since 2011 I got married in 2015. I was taking the medicine for 50 mg but my thyroid is not getting control. I started taking 75 mg from feb but only 2 months it was normal after that again tsh goes on higher side .i.e. 17. Why it is not getting controlled.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

lybrate-user, As I understand with Thyroxine 75 mcg daily, TSH was in control for about 2 months. Later it has again increased to 17 mU/L with 75 mcg of thyroxine, is that right? Or have reduced the dosage after TSH came down on 75 mcg dosage. Please clarify. If now TSH is high, then there is a need to increase Thyroxine dosage to 100 mcg, per day and check TSH level after 6 weeks. Thanks.

Here are symptoms, type, effects, and Treatments of Diabetes

Hi, to all the viewers. I am Dr. Hardik Thakker, an M. D. physician practicing from Mumbai. I would like to take this opportunity to talk about diabetes mellitus, As you all know, diabetes is a very common lifestyle disorder that we see in India. In fact, 7.1% of the adult Indian population is afflicted by this disease. If you go by world ranking, India ranks 1 as per the total number of diabetic patients in India followed by China and the United States. So this number by itself shows the burden of the disease.

Now, what I commonly see in our practice is there are a lot of newly diagnosed patients who do not have any symptoms but they have just done a random sugar check and are diagnosed to have diabetes. So the moral of the story is that one does not need to have symptoms. Typically, a diabetic would have a history of increased urination, increase of water intake, weight gain or weight loss. Sometimes, they may develop complications like eye issues, peripheral neuropathy which is tingling and numbness in the nerves and sometimes they come with foot ulcers but a majority of the patients are asymptomatic. So, a sincere request to all the viewers to have your sugars checked once a year at least just to be sure that you are not missing out on your own disease.

Now, I am going to speak about the types of diabetes, why does it happen and what are the things that happen in diabetes. There is Type 1 diabetes which is found in people less than 20 years of age, and then there is autoimmune destruction of the pancreas because of which the secretion of insulin is not there and hence the sugars are high. These patients need only insulin and there are no medications for them. The second and the most common type is Type 2 diabetes which you will find in people above 40 years of age. The typical age in Mumbai or in India for that matter is 42 years which is the age of presentation and they usually treated with medications and sometimes with add-on insulin.

There is a third uncommon variant called the MODY which is Mode Dematurity Onset Diabetes which also needs insulin and it has some autoimmune disorders and genetic predispositions. In diabetes, there are sugars present in the blood in very high amounts which damages a lot of your organs. For example, the most common organ is the nerve. So it leads to neuropathy, people get tingling and numbness in the nerves. Also, another most common organ is the heart. Diabetes can cause blockages in the heart which leads to heart attack. The third common is the eye, specially the retina. It causes retinopathy and people have decreased vision and sometimes they see floaters in the eyes.

Fourth, most common complication is the foot ulcer. We do not want people to have these complications and hence the reason to diagnose and treat early and eat right. With regard to lifestyle management, I would sincerely request diabetic patients to have a brisk walk for 30 minutes every day. This by itself will increase your insulin sensitivity and help you to decrease the dose. Second thing is eating healthy which makes a huge difference to your sugar levels, to have a very low calorie meal, specifically avoid sugars and exercise. So, that is all I would like to say on diabetes.

If you wish to contact me further or would like to consult with me in private, I would request you to go to my website which is www.drhardikthakker.com and you can even get in touch with me through lybrate.com. Thank you very much for your time.

I am diabetic since last two years and taking drugs Glysipage G2b my sugar lavel is fasting 120To130. and post lunch 160 to180. After taking drugs twice a day now a days sugar level increases what to do ?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
Your blood sugar seems to be fairly well controlled. A FBS less than 130 and PPBS less than 180 mg/dl if satisfactory for most people. If you are young, say less than 40 years, then a slightly tighter blood sugar level would be ideal. Check your HBA1C and see your average blood sugar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query In a patient with long standing diabetes one of the common long term complication is peripheral neuropathy. This develops even when the blood glucose control is reasonably good. In case of badly controlled diabetes the problem becomes more severe. Since there is no mention of her blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, it is difficult to know if the condition is well controlled at all. There are some drugs used to treat neuropathic pain like pragabalin, gabapentine and some vitamin combinations. I did not understand what you mean by" Doctor sayi ng there is some problem from disc to vain in leg" Because whether the problem is due to neuropathy or blood supply affection leading to pain. This needs to be clarified. Has there been ultra sound or Doppler study done to see if the blood supply to the lower limbs is proper? Thanks.

Hello doctor. My question is, is diabetic patient can take honey with water and lemon in the morning?
Plainly, yes, diabetics can have honey, but obviously in moderation. When it comes to sugar and diabetes, most people believe that anything sweet is taboo. But what you need to consider is that it is the total carbohydrates in your diet, and not the amount of sugar that matters. Honey has high glycemic index compare to white sugar so it will not immediately increase your blood sugar level. But you can use it in moderate amount only.

She has got uncontrolled diabetes, and a non responding unilateral swelling in leg needs urgent attention to rule out circulatory obstruction in the leg due to diabetic complication. At times it may take a serious turn in to diabetic gangrene. Show her to a general surgeon immediately and once he clears serious reasons, then a diabetologist should prescribe her appropriately. She may need a colour Doppler examination of her leg.
