Hello doctor I am suffering from thyroid I am using medicines every day so is their any chance to avoid this problem for ever.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, If one has hypothyroidism, then the treatment is to take thyroxine tablets for lifetime. Dose of thyroxine should be such that TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. Since it is a hormone deficiency condition, treatment has to be supplementation of the hormone for lifetime. There is no other option. Thanks.

Im a type 1 diabetic patient & working for a BPO. Does change in shift's affects my health?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, having t1 dm does not make you more vulnerable to shift working. But you have to meticulously manage your insulin injection dosing and food intake more carefully. Plus try and get good rest, as t1dm can increase tiredness unless sugar levels are well controlled. Plus avoid consuming junk foods and pastries. If you feel hungry consume more of fruits and green leafy vegetables and salads. That should be more beneficial.

Firstly I would recommend that you consult a pulmonologist to asses clinically assess you. In addition to Thyroid parameters, I would optimize all metabolic parameters. I am confident that this approach will help ease your respiratory symptoms in addition to improving your health in general.

I am 48 years old, I am suffering from diabetic, have frozen shoulder problem, what is the reason and how to cure? Please help me.

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
Frozen shoulder is known complication of uncontrolled diabertes. Regular exercise is the only solution to avoid . Frozen shoulder is damage and stiffness of the capsule of joint and losing its softness. The supporting ligaments gets harder and harder day by day causing pain while attempting any movement, hence slow and steady physiotherapy under medication of anti-inflammatory tablets like flexon, combiflam etc and good sugar control is the only way out.

No. Not at all. U need not to increase th dose of this tab as it can cause some harms. Rather you can change your tab according to th advise of your family physician. There are much better options available. Also you can follow some diet modulations acc to th expert advise. Take healthy nutritious diet.

I have posted my question several times but still didn't get a proper answer. I am 29 years old having hypothyroidism. But my tag is under control. My lower pelvic ultrasound scan was ok. I had irregular periods as I was diagnosed with thyroid 2 years back. But my periods became normal since January this year. But from July 24 again I am not having periods. Can you help me Regularly I am exercising also. Please help me out.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is under control then periods usually become normal, provided that is the only cause. Sometimes there may be other hormonal issues also involved, then one needs to investigate further to find out exact cause. If hypothyroidism is in control then TSH should be between 3 to 4 m U/L. If the value is higher than this then irregularity invariably persists. You have not mentioned the current TSH level, which will give an idea about the control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

I have hyperthyroidism I'm using thyronorm 50 mcg tablets but there is no improvement in my weight gain I'm under weight. What should i do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, If you are on thyroxine tablets (50 mcg), means you have hypothyroidism. It would be better if you had given total results of thyroid assay. Usually hypothyroidism leads to increased weight. Hyperthyroidism can cause weight loss. But the treatment is anti-thyroid drugs. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for posting your query. Well yes you can control your sugars with exercise. But know one thing you are on quiet a high dose medication for diabetes so don't except that only with exercise you can control blood sugars and avoid taking medication. With exercise you requirement for medication comes down and still you will require some medication. Best exercise are brisk walking and jogging but since you have limitations doing it, you can try cycling or stepper exercise. Also to some extent upper body exercise like weight lifting etc.

Garlic is an old remedy for many diseases, and diabetics could also gain much from it. Garlic could help the heart, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Sugar level of 220 is high. Please consult a doctor for proper medicine. Also for diet you can refer to these steps..>> Avoid 3 big meals. Instead take small mini meals every 2/3 hours. Take green vegetables/salad with every minimeal..>> Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc..>> Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango..>> Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc..>> Eat fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange..>> Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal.

Hello, we have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term. Kindly let me know your age, height, weight and other symptoms if any. This information is vital so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards
