I am a diabetic patient for the last 10 years & Thyroid last 25 years. My HBA1C at Present is 7.5 and TSH is 34. TS3 ...
Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic person it is essential to achieve a strict blood glucose control. That means fasting blood glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <7. That too considering your age HbA1c% should be <7. As regards TSH, in a well controlled hypothyroidism patient TSH should be around 3 to 4 mU/L, then only one will be free from all the symptoms of thatcondition. If TSH is 34 mU/L, means current dosage is not adequate. It has to be increased. Thanks.

Kindly get an evaluation done by a DM Endocrinology person at the earliest. Low TSH can be due to either the gland that is function more which appears to be more likely in your mothers case. However, low TSH can also be due to leakage of thyroid hormones from the gland which is caused due to thyroiditis that is self limiting condition. Since both these conditions have different treatment it is always better to find the cause for low TSH before starting thyroid medicine. This is done by performing a Nuclear scan under supervision of an Endocrinologist. If nuclear scan shows that both the lobes of thyroid are functioning more then thyrocab treatment as has been given can be started and repeat blood tests be done after 6 weeks. Hope this helps.

Hello, Thanks for the query. It appears you are having hyperthyroidism. This condition is treated with drugs like Methimazole or carbimazole. The treatment has to go on for 18 to 24 months, before the excess activity is controlled. Once proper control is achieved, treatment is discontinued. In some cases the gland may again become over active. Then further treatment is necessary. If the activity is further increased then treatment may have to be reconsidered. With thyroid function in good control, getting pregnant is quite possible. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. Because of untreated hyperthyroidism you have lost weight. Therefore, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. There's no dietary restriction. But treatment has to be started. You will need anti - thyroid drug like Carbimazole. Thanks.
