Your tsh values are in normal range with above dosage? hypothyroidism normally doesn't cause weight gain more than 4 kg. Your weight gain is may be related to diet. According to your height and weight and bmi you fall in obese 1 cat. You should give more attention on diet along with exercise. There are certain medication like metformin and orlistat that might help to loose weight but that needs prior clinical examination. You can consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist for the same.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the description it appears to be a paronychia infection, which affects part around the nail. It is a very painful condition. If it has become yellow, means there is pus collection. That has to be drained and cleaned then dressed. It will take a few days to heal. She may need a course of antibiotic for 5 to 7 days. There is no need to worry so much. I do not undestand what injection is given when the infection is just developing. There is absolutely no need. She should also control her blood glucose strictly, because high glucose can hinder healing. Thanks.

Dear sir I have a thyroid problem my weight is increased 1kg every month even I take english medicine eltroxin 100mg everyday morning in empty stomach. Please give ayurvedic or home medicine to completely recover thyroid problem and stop the regular intake of medicine.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, the only treatment for hypothyroidism is taking thyroxine tablets in adequate dose, so that tsh level is maintained around 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If tsh is higher then weight increase will continue and all the efforts to reduce weight will not be useful. So please check if your tsh is at that level then efforts to control weight will be fruitful.

What should be the regular diet for a thyroid patient? Which food should be ignored?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Thanks for the query. There is no special diet for hypothyroidism. Only thing is soy beans should be avoided and also soy containing products. Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid pastries, bakery products and foods made from maida. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The surgery being talked about is actually for treating excess obesity. Thsese procedures are called as "Bariatric surgery" Usually performed in patients who are excessively obese (BMI above 40 kgs/M2).In some of these patients following the operation there is a major weight loss, which could be 30 to 50 kgs or even more depending upon earlier weight. This results in the cure of diabetes if the disease about 5 years old or less at the time of surgery. In others there is a better control achieved on blood glucose, because of loss of aft there is reduced insulin resistance. Plus the procedure reduces total food intake to a fraction of what was earlier. This itself helps blood glucose reduction. Thanks.

My father has a very big issue in sugar. He follows every thing but he can't get over it.

My father has a very big issue in sugar. He follows every thing but he can't get over it.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medication will depend upon blood sugar level.

BHMS

I have a thyroid patient and I have a lot of pain in my joints can you tell me what I have to do it.
When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg(s) elevated. Do this a few times a day. Note: Do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite. 2. Massage -- Massage promotes faster recovery from muscle damage that causes leg pain. 10 minutes of massage therapy attenuates inflammatory signaling after exercise-induced muscle damage. In addition, massage improves blood circulation and helps relieve stress and anxiety. Rub some warm olive, coconut or mustard oil on the affected area. Using gentle yet firm strokes, massage your legs for about 10 minutes. Do this 2 or 3 times daily as needed. You can also use a self-massage device or apply pressure to sore muscles using a tennis ball.

Higher TSH - 252 (1 month back) Under going medicine TYROUP 75 mg After 1 month dose TSH - 100 Kindly suggest what is the treatment and do I have to take medicine life long.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, your tsh levels both earlier and current are exceptionally high. Therefore dosage of thyroxine 75 mcg is too low. When on treatment and on good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. So your current dose is very inadequate. With this dose hypothyroidism symptoms will not be controlled. Plus you will have to follow all instructions regarding taking the dose like early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hours. Plus avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, peanuts, radich and coffee. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, (no maida, or other refined flour). Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. To decide on the correct dose I need to know weight, height and t4 levels. Treatment has to be taken for life time. There is no option. If not properly treated then it can lead to serious consequences. Thanks for the question.

Increased thirst, increased hunger, urinary frequency more than 2 times in the night are a few main symptom of diabetes. It is good that you have become diet cautious and started doing. Fasting/ pps were done how many times 6 months back. Hba1c is a very important 3 monthly sugar test to check out the sugar control level. Please go for a proper screening for fbs, pps, rft, lipid profile, hba1c and serum electrolytes without delay and let the results be evaluated properly for establishing diabetes and its complications and if necessary, proper treatment of diabetes.

Lybrate-userji, t2 diabetes does run in families, passes on to children from parents. So there is a real possibility of you getting it too. However, one good thing about t2 dm is that it is a preventable disease. By that it means that if one maintains a healthy modifies lifestyle, one can remain free from it or postpone it for a number of years. Healthy lifestyle means - exercise regularly, for at least 1 hour a day, take a balanced diet, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, high milk products, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Maintain a normal weight (bmi <23 kg/m2) your present bmi is 27.01 kg/m2, showing definite over weight. That needs to be reduced (ideal body weight + 57 kgs). By following above things you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable number of years. Thanks for the question.

How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.

How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.
How to control hunger if food is not taken in a day or week. Sorry if I hurt your sentiments. But its just a way to explain this. Just as we can not curb hunger without eating, similarly we can not control sugars without insulin. Please understand and respect your body just as you understand your basic needs. Regards.
