Sorry to inform you that you have hypothyroidism Hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs when your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormones There are many glands in the body, but the thyroid gland is the small, butterfly-shaped organ at the base of your neck that makes hormones that regulate your metabolism — which affects how the body uses energy — and other processes.

Mr Adrija, High TSH levels signify hypothyroidism. Weight increase happens as a symptom of hypothyroidism. But if one is already less in weight that does not rule out possibility of hypothyroidism.

She doesn't need insulin at this stage. To control the blood sugar, she should avoid much sweets in food. Lower the amount of sugar in tea and other food items. Also, rice should be avoided. Eat more jamuns. They help in controlling diabetes.

Dear lybrate-user At her age it's Type 2 DM for sure. There are few tests to differentiate between Type 1 and type 2 like C peptide test and immune markers like Islet-cell (IA2), anti-GAD65, and anti-insulin autoantibodies can be present in early type 1 But in your case it must be Type 2. Regards.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From what is written I understand that you have diabetes, more than that nothing is clear to me. If you want any specific advice please come back with following details: Fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, present dietary pattern, extent of exercise being done daily. It is better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation), then I will be able to give specific advice and drugs if needed and diet plan. Thanks.

Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

There are some commonest misconceptions about infertility, and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility, and you can follow them.

List of myths and facts regarding infertility

1.Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21-36 days.

2.Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours, and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two-days after ovulation and five-days before ovulation.

3.Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4.Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5.Myth: Men with a higher sexual-drive will have a normal sperm-count.
Fact: No relation is there in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex-drive do not produce sperms.

6.Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7.Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8.Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

9.Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12-16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

10.Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20, and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Look at it with a holistic approach. Revisit your eating habits and check the type of food that you consume. By adapting some healthy changes in your routine activites, you can control your sugar levels. Choose your food (choose natural, unpolished grains and pulses, and seasonal vegetable and fruits ). Eat them fresh (homemade ). Take the help of a dietician who can make a list if item with appropriate calories. Start exercising everyday and sleep well (relax the mind and body ). Have patience and learn more (from the internet) about diabetes and it's management by changing the lifestyle.

Mr Inamullah, Your blood sugar level is very high, this means your diabetes is totally uncontrolled. What is your HbA1c%, it should be <7%. Diabetes is a disease that affects microvasculature (small vessels) and causes kidney problems and also erectile dysfunction. If you do not control diabetes effectively, by maintaining fasting sugar level closer tp 100mg and PP between 150 to 160 mg, HbA1c% <7, then ED is unlikely to improve. So please make effort to control blood sugar levels effectively.
