I am a 20 year old boy. I recently had blood test in which it is found that I have thyroid i. E TSH 38.53 and my question is, Can it be cured permanently. Please do reply soon sir. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one develops hypothyroidism, then it can only be controlled by taking thyroxine in adequate dosage, but for lifetime. There is no cure. The reason is that thyroxine isan essential hormone needed for development and functioning of brain, plus required for all vital metabolic functions in the body. So it has to be daily supplemented from out side.

Taking the following could also help in accelerating the weight loss process: taking pranacharya medohar rasayan (1-1) twice a day; taking medohar guggul (2-2) twice a day; pranacharya slim capsule (1-1) twice a day. 2. It is advisable to avoid junk, fried, fermented or oily food. You should also avoid the intake of alcohol, sugar, dairy products. 3. You should increase the intake of oats and cereals.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Dear lybrate-user start medicines for diabetes immediately. You are still in young age so do the following: 1. Stop over eating. 2. Do brisk walk daily for 35-45 minutes. 3. You can start activities like swimming cycling or jogging also. Yoga is another good thing but shall be done with qualified instructor. 4. Cut down potato, rice, sweets from your diet. 5. Have tea coffee without sugar and sugar free, in few days you will adjust with taste. 6. Take less of alcohol, dry fruits etc. Though you can have few almonds. With this discipline and medicine you will be able to control diabetes. Wish you a speedy recovery.
