I am having thyroid since March 2016. Don't want to take any allopathic medicine. Putting on weight. Kindly help me.

I am having thyroid since March 2016. Don't want to take any allopathic medicine. Putting on weight. Kindly help me.
Lybrate-user, if any one has hypothyroidism, then only way to treat it is to take thyroxine hormone as a replacement. The condition occurs due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain on day to day basis. Plus it is necessary for multiple metabolic activities in the body. If not provided (as tablets of thyroxine) then considerable problems occur including weight gain, slow heart rate, tired feeling, early fatigue, lack of interest, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular periods and excess flow, irritability, anxiety and depression. Only remedy for this is taking thyroixine tablets for life time. There are no other options. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Change your soap. Use a moisturising agent every night. Usually dry skin causes itching. Also check your diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Following are the glucose levels to decide if one is normal or otherwise. 1) Normal: Fasting :70 to 110 mg, PP:<140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9 2) Pre-diabetic: FBG:108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes:FBG: 126 mg and above, PP: 200 mg and above & HbA1c%:6.5 and above. From this it should be clear to you. So please get a fasting and afer food level done. Thanks.

I am diabetic patient aged 62 years. Daily I used to walk around 6 KM and taking medicine and food control. Inspite of that my sugar will be 220 and 170 Why? I understand that with walk there will be more relief for diabetics. I never talk rice daily only once in a month and thrice in a month. Morning iddlis, afternoon Chappatis, biscuits and Night also I used to take Chappatis, but stopped due to doctors advise and started taking iddlis or dosa.

Mr. lybrate-user Moorthy, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned show that diabetes is not at all in control. This means either the medication being taken is inadequate or the food intake is much more than that is needed plus there is less physical activity. All these in combination are contributing to the uncontrolled high blood glucose. Following are a few of my observations: 1) Your ideal body weight should be 58.5 kgs. 2) The caloric intake has to be based on this weight (58.5 X 20 cal = 1170 calories per day). 2) This means your total food intake has to provide only this many calories in a day. 3) This means about 2 to 3 idlis in breakfast, or just 2 small dosas, lunch and dinner also have to be on the similar lines. Not more than 1 chapati or roti, a small bowl of rice, plus vegetables, salads, plus curd one cup. 4) No biscuits or any other item made of maida. To me your over all food intake is much higher than needed. Plus there has to be walking as you have been doing. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

You can safely go for phaco-emulsification with foldable lens, after control of blood sugar you will have to take clearance from cardiologist & few days before surgery you will have to stop taking aspirin. You should get operated where there is facility for cardiac monitoring in operation theatre must be attended by cardiologist during surgery, with regards.

Shrinking of hands is because of loss of subcutaneous fat'muscle atrophy of hands and dermopathy' all due to advanced diabetes leading to neutopathy: needs good blood sugar control and if on oral drugs then insulin will be better anyway get assess by an good diabetolosist to look for diabetic complicstions.

If you are under proper diet plan, exercise and regular medications with a follow up under the supervision of a qualified physician or a diabetologist get blood sugar checked fasting, 1 1/2 hours after heavy morning meal and just before dinner. Show this to your regular physicain. Dosage may be less effective or there may be some accompanied new problem like some infection etc. Leave it to the doctor.

Give up sugar and sweets if not done so far, only healthy fats like a katori of assorted nuts to get good fats + proteins. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits but eating according to constitution e g it is not a must to eat sprouts if it leads to distention. Clear soups of pulses like moong, kale chane. Besan is good and it can be mixed with wheat flour to add on proteins and to reduce calories. Fresh juice of a lemon + 1 spoon of honey with warm water, if taken on empty stomach does reduce weight, bad fats and sugar in blood. Calories of honey can be compensated by taking 1 chapati less. Reduce carbs anyway but do take whole fruits, never mind the sugar content in whole fruits, look at the fresh vitamins & minerals. No juices or fizzy drinks. Light exercises loke walking helps the heart and burns extra sugar. Level of sugar is on borderline at 140 for fasting, upper limit is 120- it means that you are already taking good care of him. Keep it up and be careful about other factors responsible for a good heart- no smoking or exposure to pollution, no bad fats like transfats even occassionally for a party.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose levels show that diabetes is not in good control Even HbA1c% should be <6.8. One of the main reason appears to be obesity. If you make serious efforts to cut your weight by about 8 %, you will be able to achieve excellent blood glucose control. We will have to look at your diet and exercise pattern. If you are keen to reduce weight, then I can help. Thanks.

Why ativan is being taken at 11 pm? so naturally she will get sleep around 3 am. Why so late going to bed? as that is your main concern. You have to change the daily routine. She should have dinner around 7 - 7.30 pm and take ativan tab and go to bed around 9 - 9.30 pm for the medicine to be effective. To achive this she has to stop watching tv by 8 pm and read some books or magazines or meditate and maintain general relaxed mood. To do that other family members have to cooperate to maintain the peaceful atmosphere and help her in maintaing the timings. Do not get on to the bed until bed time. As she is practicing meditation, have it in the evening also and learn and practice" bhraamari" yoga practice morning and evening which will help her to fall asleep. For all this the other family members have to cooperate in closing the tv and maintaining silence. Change will not come in a single day, but by persistance she can have good sleep.

Hi Frozen shoulder takes a long time to heal. Some take few months others take 5 Years. If it's the pain that's troubling you, painkillers can be taken. If it's still severe steroid injections will help. Along with this physiotherapy has to be continued. Stiff shoulder needs stretching exercises. An orthopedician will help you further from here.

Hello, if she has diabetes then through out pregnancy blood glucose levels should be between 90 to 120 mg. This is all through the day. Otherwise pregnancy out come is affected. Can lead to miscarriages, large baby etc. She has to be on insulin with very strict glucose control. However t 3 & t4 being high tsh low is fine. It would have been better if actual levels were mentioned. Thanks. Most important is strict blood glucose control.

I have got Achilles Tendonitis (severe pain in my Achilles tendon at the back of left foot) due to car driving and using the clutch excessively, I have not had any injury. Could it be due to uric acid and a gout attack? I have had past history of uric acid? should I take Feburic along with Combiflam.

For your high uric acid continue taking Feburic to avoid complications associated with high levels of uric acid. Risk factors for Achilles tendinitis are as follows. 1. Advanced age and Male sex. 2. Obesity 3. Sudden excessive activities like running or jumping. 4. Wearing shoes without proper heel support during work out. 5.Patients with high blood pressure or psoriasis are at higher risk. 6. Flat arch foot predisposes to achilles tendinitis. Management : 1. Rest to the foot for 1 or 2 days. 2. Apply ice pack for 10 minutes 3 to 4 times a day. 3. Apply compression bandage to reduce swelling. 4. Keep feet elevated at night time by placing pillow underneath. 5. Take analgesics like paracetamol or Ibuprofen for relief. 6. Once pain is relieved you can start stretching exercises of calf muscles. 7. Use a shoe insert or wedge to relieve stress on tendon. 8. If pain is persistent and severe please consult .g
