Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Consult doctor, meanwhile take nexpro-l 1 tab daily.

Use less shampoo. If you use too much shampoo, you increase the chances that residue will be left behind. Failure to thoroughly rinse out shampoo of the hair causes scalp irritation and flakiness. 2. Exfoliate your scalp. Getting rid of dry, dead skin cells is just as good for your dry scalp as it is for your face. Mix a tablespoon or two of sugar with your shampoo and gently work it into your scalp with the pads of your fingers. Avoid using your fingernails when lathering up, which can cause nicks or cuts. 3. Avoid extremely hot water. Hot water can dry out the skin and aggravate a dry, flaky scalp. The same is true for heat styling products such as a blow-dryer. Excessive heat can cause the scalp to become irritated and dry. 4. Give yourself a scalp massage. A scalp massage causes blood to flow to the scalp, and helps clear any blocked pores that may be interfering with sebum production. Sebum is the oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp. Massaging the scalp also loosens excess dead skin and dandruff, making it easier to wash away. Give yourself a scalp massage before or during your shampoo, or even when you're relaxing in front of the tv. Putting olive oil on your fingertips before the massage gives your scalp added benefits. After the massage, continue with an olive oil treatment.

My colleague has got 225 sugar recently which is for the first time. At the same time he has got malaria and his eye sight is extremely poor. How should he go ahead?

Poor vision in his case can be due to the following reasone 1. Due to fluctuating sugar levels vision may be poor 2. Malaria can cause reaction in eye 3. Anti-malarial drugs could also cause toxicity leading to poor vision without a complete examination it is difficult to comment. It is advisable to consult a eye specialist personally.

Hi sir, I am a diabetic patient, can I have 3 re times a day using fenugreek seeds?
Mr. lybrate-user, Fenugreek seeds contain a good amount of fiber, which helps in slowing down carbohydrate absorption. So taking thsese seeds is helpful. But whether there is direct reduction in blood glucose and how much, is difficult to say. Thanks.

Blood sugar variations are very common. The cause may be 1. Not following proper dietary restrictions. 2. Not taking the medicines /insulin at the time adviced. 3. Any fever, stress, infection. 4. Reaction of other medicines, not applicable in your case as you are taking insulin. You need to consult with an expert and rectify the problem with proper coordination. I have also attached a painless continuous glucose monitoring device and tuned the dose of medicine /insulin and diet, and achieved control in many patients.

lybrate-user, Both Glycomet 500 mg and 500 mg SR tablets contain same medication Metformin 500 mg. The difference is SR has a formulation which releases the drug over 6 to 8 hours. One of the advantage claimed is SR tends to be better tolerated. Some patients complain of gastrointestinal side effects, then SR is advised. As regards drug action both are same. Thanks.

Dear doctor my mother is thyroid patient and her TSH Level is 6.5 (normal range is. 5-4.7) last checked on 11/3/16 she is taking 50 mcg thyronorm everyday and 100 mcg once in a week. Her age is 52, weight is 53 kg and heightbus 5.1 inches. Kindly suggest the dose she needs to change as after taking medicine her tsh level shoots up? Thanks in advance.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
when on treatment tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units/ml, then only hypothyroidism is said to be in control. Hence 6.5 milli units is a high level. This has to be brought down to above mentioned figure. For that dose of thyroxine has to go up. I think I had asked you to give the tsh levels when the treatment was started or when diagnosis was made. Aslo her t4 levels then as well as body weight. Because it appears initial dosage being given is inadequate. So she needs to take more of thyroxine than the present dose.

Meghaji, with tsh level of 7.6 milli units/ml, there is no need for starting treatment with thyroxine. Usually treatment is advised after the tsh level crosses 10 milli units/ml. You are in subclinical category. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus should exercise to avoid weight increase also take iodinated salt and a restricted diet to keep weight in check. In subclinical condition (with tsh levels between 6 to 10 milli units/ ml) unless there are some specific troublesome symptoms treatment with thyroxine is not started. Your weight is t2 kgs, please let me know if it has increased during last few months or it has been like that earlier too.

I have thyroid problem, get tired easily, get irritated easily, I have put on lots of weight. How to control my weight?

MBBS, M.MED, DFM, FID, CCEBDM, ACMDC, CCMTD

Relationship between thyroid and weight It has been appreciated for a very long time that there is a complex relationship between thyroid disease, body weight and metabolism. Thyroid hormone regulates metabolism in both animals and humans. Metabolism is determined by measuring the amount of oxygen used by the body over a specific amount of time. If the measurement is made at rest, it is known as the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Indeed, measurement of the BMR was one of the earliest tests used to assess a patient’s thyroid status. Patients whose thyroid glands were not working were found to have low BMRs, and those with overactive thyroid glands had high BMRs. Later studies linked these observations with measurements of thyroid hormone levels and showed that low thyroid hormone levels were associated with low BMRs and high thyroid hormone levels were associated with BMRs. Most physicians no longer use BMR due to the complexity in doing the test and because the BMR is subject to many other influences other than the thyroid state. Relationship between bmr and weight Differences in BMRs are associated with changes in energy balance. Energy balance reflects the difference between the amount of calories one eats and the amount of calories the body uses. If a high BMR is induced by the administration of drugs, such as amphetamines, animals often have a negative energy balance which leads to weight loss. Based on such studies many people have concluded that changes in thyroid hormone levels, which lead to changes in BMR, should also cause changes in energy balance and similar changes in body weight. However, BMRs are not the whole story relating weight and thyroid. For example, when metabolic rates are reduced in animals by various means (for example by decreasing the body temperature), these animals often do not show the expected excess weight gain. Thus, the relationship between metabolic rates, energy balance, and weight changes is very complex. There are many other hormones (besides thyroid hormone), proteins, and other chemicals that are very important for controlling energy expenditure, food intake, and body weight. Because all these substances interact on both the brain centers that regulate energy expenditure and tissues throughout the body that control energy expenditure and energy intake, we cannot predict the effect of altering only one of these factors (such as thyroid hormone) on body weight as a whole. As a consequence, at this time, we are unable to predict the effect of changing thyroid state on any individual’s body weight.

Hi If you take insulin, you are not eligible to donate. The rationale is that donating blood could interrupt your blood glucose control, and potentially lead to a hypoglycemic reaction in the clinic or on the way home. If you manage your diabetes with lifestyle or diabetes pills, you may be eligible, depending on your overall health and if you meet the eligibility criteria listed below. Many people who have type 2 diabetes have blood pressure and heart problems, which would prevent them from donating. So, if you are on OHAs and on good control, you should be able to donate blood, suggest not unless you are very keen and should be done under close monitoring.

The child will have a family history of diabetes.Very difficult to say if the child will be diabetic or not.Regular monitoring of the baby will be required.Your sister also needs to be very closely monitored throughout her pregnancy to keep the sugars under normal control.
