Hello doc Actually I'm pregnant. I have hypothyroid. Which was last tested with 82 tsh level. M taking thyronorm 100 mg ryt now with calcium & vitamins tablets. Plus I have an epilepsy problem called JME. As I consulted gynecologist yesterday. She told me to ask my neuro surgeon abt this prob first because I am on valprol CR 500 tablet from the last two years and she said that pregnancy should be avoided with this medicine. But last time I had my periods on 1 nov 2017, its about more than two months. What should I do? Should I terminate my pregnancy? I am very confused. I don't know what to do. Please please suggest me. I Really need your help doc. i am stuck between emotions. Please reply.

The situation needs detailed discussion. Valproate can cause problems with development of the baby. But not always valproate will cause problems. On the other hand uncontrolled epilepsy is more dangerous for you and your baby. Majority of the valproate related problems can be diagnosed in ultrasound. But some problems can develop at relatively late age of the baby. Please start folic acid and discuss the issue in a meeting with neurologist, gynaecologist and your family being present.

If there is swelling it can be from uric acid deposition called gout and check your serum uric acid level.

My father is suffering with high uric acid which cause gaut. What should he take in food and what should be avoided?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High uric acid level can be caused when human body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys do not eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications , Drinking too much alcohol, Genetics disorder , hypothyroidism , Immune-suppressing drugs, Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity, psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Do test KFT every 6 months to monitor levels of it. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints .

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height, it is clear that you are over weight, almost having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 29.56 kgs/M2. This it self can be a major culprit for most of the problems. You have mentioned about taking thyroxine 50 mcg, but no other drug details are given. Also there is no mention about present or recent TSH value, BP reading and lipid values. Plus with recent episode as described, it is necessary for you to under go a detailed heart check up, an echo cardiogram and angiegraphy also. That will give a clear idea about what may be the cause of recent episode. Thanks.

Testosterone Hormone

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Testosterone Hormone

Testosterone is a powerful hormone, with the ability to control sex drive, regulate sperm production, promote muscle mass, increase energy, and even influence human behavior (such as aggression and competitiveness). It’s no wonder that a decrease in testosterone would cause quite a stir. However, it is a natural part of aging.

In the Womb

Testosterone plays an important role in shaping the developing fetus during pregnancy. It drives the development of the male reproductive system. Testosterone also masculinizes the brain.testosterone levels have to fall within a very narrow margin in order for the fetal brain to be healthy. High levels of fetal testosterone may be linked to autism.low levels of fetal testosterone may boost your chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease later in life.

Adolescence to Early Adulthood

Testosterone levels are at their highest during adolescence and early adulthood. The first physical signs of testosterone, or androgens, in the body are apparent during puberty. A boy’s voice changes, his shoulders broaden, and his facial structure becomes more masculine. But as men get older, their testosterone levels decline about 1 percent per year after age 30.

Male   Female  
Age: T Level (ng/dL): Age: T Level (ng/dL):
0-5 months 75-400 0-5 months 20-80
6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20 6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20
10-11 yrs. <7-130 10-11 yrs. <7-44
12-13 yrs. <7-800 12-16 yrs. <7-75
14 yrs. <7-1,200 17-18 yrs. 20-75
15-16 yrs. 100-1,200 19+ yrs. 8-60
17-18 yrs. 300-1,200    
19+ yrs. 240-950    
Avg. Adult Male 270-1,070 Avg. Adult Female 15-70
30+ yrs. -1% per year

Testosterone and Aging

low testosterone levels can cause changes in sexual function, including:

  • reduced sexual desire, or low libido
  • fewer spontaneous erections
  • impotence (erectile dysfunction)
  • infertility
  • Other signs of decreased testosterone levels include:

  • changes in sleep patterns
  • emotional changes, such as low self-confidence or lack of motivation
  • physical changes, like increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density

The normal range of testosterone levels in healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

Other Possibilities

While the symptoms described here are considered a normal part of aging, they could also be signs of several underlying factors. These include:

  • a reaction to certain medications
  • thyroid gland disorders
  • depression
  • excessive alcohol use                                                                                 
  •  
  • the best time of day to have a blood sample taken for a testosterone test is around 8 a.m.

When your Diabetologist has decided you need Insulin then it is right. Insulin help to prevent complications of diabetes. There is no better or bad medicine. Matter is what is required and giving you good result that is your medicine. Of course that should not cause damage to your health - your consultant definitely knows that. Trust him.

Hi Your RBS value is diabetic value. However with one value we cannot decide if you are a Diabetic. Get your 3 month average blood sugar test, HbA1C. This will confirm if your a diabetic or pre diabetic.
