Mr. Lybrate-user, the present readings suggest there is sub- clinical hypothyroidism. This normally is not treated. Only when tsh levels cross 10 milli units/l treatment is given. Only certain precautions need to be observed like avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Because these interfere in the thyroxine action. Since you are also having grade 1 obsity (bmi 36.69 kgs/m2), there appears to be a need for treating the present condition even though it is apparently sub - clinical. Thanks for the question.

Some days only there is evening coffee or tea w/o sugar and some biscuits 2nos or poha dry}. Dinner is almost same (if rice for lunch then wheat for dinner}.

Presently medication is; (a) PRAX A 75 (0-1-0), (b) Istavel 100mg (1-0-0) (c) Cardivas CR 10 (1-0-0),(d) A to Z (1-0-0) {Multi vitamin tablets} (e) Rozavel F (0-0-1), (f) Diamicron Mr. 30mg (0-0-1) Walking is no problem except need to do a slower start than what was done earlier feeling is pleasant pain & tiredness very brief which is naturally cooled off sitting shade on terrace reading morning newspapers.

For cystitis get a urine culture and sensitivity test done and take treatment accordingly to cure cystitis. Drink plenty of water and take urine alkaliser. Typhoid is curable see a physician for the same. You can also get vaccinated for typhoid. Adenomyosis can be controlled with medicine see a gynaecologist for the same. Being cancelled by some boys is not end of world. Exercise daily eat a balanced diet and stay fit and live life confidently.

Hello Doctor, After Thyroidectomy is there any chance that Parathyroid are working fine but serum Calcium is low because of secondary reasons if so what could be the other reasons for low calcium after thyroidectomy.

Hi after thyroidectomy the reason for decreased calcium is mainly due to parathyroid dysfunction. After surgery due to handling of thyroid gland there can be dysfunction for some time but the function is regained after some months. Do keep doing serum calcium levels every now and then. Consult an endocrinologist if required. Regards.

You need to keep a tab on your sugar levels regularly. Also increase the intake of veggies, salads, whole grain cereals like jowar, bajra, oats, etc and avoid foods high in sugars such as sweets, rice, potato, etc. Take medications on time and ensure you eat small potions at regular intervals. Never skip any meal.

If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

I have been using Otrivin Nasal spray for almost 10 years now for blocked nose without any doctor's advise and I am also detected with diabetes since 1.5 yrs. I know that prolonged use of Otrivin is bad but I do not know exactly about it's ill effects. I am now actually kind of addicted to it but use less. Please suggest.

As you have no side effects now you try to stop it and check your nose for block. Using levocet m tab will hlep in allergic block this medication provides only temporary relief. Do not use more often, use more sprays, or use longer than directed because doing so may increase the risk of side effects. Also, do not use this medication for more than 3 days or it may cause a condition called rebound congestion. Symptoms of rebound congestion include long-term redness and swelling inside the nose and increased runny nose.

Mr. lybrate-user, Glucose is filtered in the kidney and reaches urine when it is more in the blood. A normal kidney threshold for glucose is 180 mg/100 ml. If it goes higher than that then it will appear in urine as kidney is unable to reabsorb. When diabetes continues for long time, then the threshold may reduce and more glucose will get lost in the urine. If diabetes is in control then FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If you maintain blood glucose level within these limits then urine glucose is hardly present. At 37 years, you need a much stricter blood glucose control. Thanks.

Thank you for the query. As per the history you have provided, you are hypertensive (BP 130/90 mm of Hg, on Tenormin 25 and Stamlo 5 mg), have hyperlipidemia (raised cholesterol) and non-diabetic. It would be helpful, if you would have posted the reprots of the lipid profile. Itis advisable to maintain your Total cholesterol <200 mg%, LDL <120 mg% and HDL >45 mg%. The Triglyceride level should be <150 mg%. Since you have limited walking capacity, you need to modify on the diet. Reduce the intake of saturated fat (ghee, butter etc) and refined carbohydrate. The Statin (Atorvastatin, Rosuvastatin) group of medications is effective in reducing cholesterol, but should be taken only after consulting your physician. Regards.

I'm in love with a girl from 6 months. I wanted to marry her also. Suddenly I come to know that she's diabetic. And that too from childhood. My friends and relatives are saying that don't take risk. But I can't leave her because of her problem. What are the problems will I have to face if I marry her?

Hello, Firstly congratulations. Your girlfriend is most likely having Type-1 Diabetes. This starts from childhood normally and patients are on insulin. Diabetic patients can lead a happy, healthy and fruitful life. 1) The most important thing is for the diabetic patient to maintain his blood glucose in the optimal range. HbA1C is a blood test that measures the average blood glucose levels over the last 3 months and the result is given in percentage. As your girlfriend is young she should have her HbA1C less than 6.5-7%. So she should be seeing her diabetologist at least once every 3 months, sooner if her glucose levels fluctuates. 2) She should follow a healthy lifestyle with due importance to diet and exercise. 3) She should also have yearly health checks done- of eyes to check for any signs of retinopathy, kidney function tests (this is by a blood and urine test), routine ECG and foot checks to check for any neuropathy. 4) She can have a normal marital life and there should be no problem in conceiving or delivering children. But she would be monitored closely during pregnancy to make sure that her blood glucose levels do not fluctuate. Your children are unlikely to get Type-1 diabetes. It is actually Type-2 which runs in families more. So, relax and you can go ahead and marry her. Provide all the support that you can to your girlfriend. Diabetics can experience low sugar symptoms or may be frustrated when their sugar level fluctuate. So be patient with her. Lastly there are so many famous people with Type-1 diabetes- Kamal Hasan, Sonam Kapoor (actress- Anil Kapoor's daughter), Wasim Akram (cricketer), Gaurav Kapoor VJ and a host of international actors, actresses and sports players. So, if these people are able to lead such fruitful and healthy lives, so can your girlfriend. I wish you best of luck. Thank you.
