Hi
My TSH I'd very high 9
I am taking Eltroxin 75 mg since a long time.
Recently I am getting pains in various parts ...
lybrate-user, The dose of Eltroxin may have to be increased to reduce TSH. Once TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Increased TSH or uncontrolled hypothyroidism does lead to muscle and joint pains. Pain in stomach, may be unrelated to other muscular or joint pains. Thanks.

Hello sir my fasting sugar is 115/110 and post lunch is 132/140
what is indicates? And my weight is 70 kg constant.
100-126 Level indicates PRE-DIABETES stage. It means that if you can control now. You can reverse your sugar levels and be healthy. BUT if you don't control now. You could slip into diabetes stage. So take care now! >> 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.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

How is your sugar control? have you checked hba1c level? joint pains may not be a direct consequence of diabetes. If sugar control is very good then better consult an orthopedic doctor. If control is bad first get the sugar in control and then try other treatment.

Madam, If she has been having diabetes since long ime and if it is not in proper control all kinds of problems can occur. A person with diabetes tends to be more susceptible for infections both viral and bacterial. On top of it if there is hypertemnsion, then there can be more diffuculties. Primary need is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg / 100 ml, HbA1c%<7. Then regular exercise of at least 1 hour is necessary for proper fitness, maintaining near normal weight. She has a BMI of 28.4 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2), her ideal body weight should be 56 kgs. In diabetes some times digestive process is affected, leading to nausea and vomiting. Sneezing can be a seasonal allergy, can be controlled. Her BP is quite high, it should be around 140/90 mm Hg or lower. You may visit a competent physician. Or online also you can consult. Thanks.

Can Being Overweight Cause Infertility

MBBS, PGDUS, Fellowship In Aesthetic Medicine, Advance Course In Diabetes - USA, MD - Medicine
Aesthetic Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Can Being Overweight Cause Infertility

Being overweight can be as problematic as being underweight. Both the situations can have an effect on the infertility in a woman. Usually, the body stores the sex hormones in the fat layers. That is why, if a person is underweight, she can have infertility issues, as there is not enough storage space for the hormones. In the same way if a person is overweight, then there is an excess of fat tissues and the amount of the hormone estrogen released is usually more than that the body can handle. This leads to a disruption of the chemicals and proteins, leading to adverse reactions and infertility.

Common Weight Related Infertility Reasons

Being overweight is somewhat linked with the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and an increase in estrogen hormone. Also, there is a greater chance of a luteal phase defect. Let us see how these can affect a woman:

  1. Estrogen: This hormone is produced by the fat cells, and if there is too much of estrogen production, then the body reacts to it in a similar manner when birth control pills are taken. Ovulation may or may not occur, and if it does, it might be inadequate. And the inadequate ovulation leads to luteal phase defect.
  2. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): This is basically an endocrine disorder with a combination of many symptoms. Symptoms are pain, irregular cycles, ovulatory pain, ovarian cysts, excessive body hair and heavy menstrual bleeding. Diagnosis for PCOS helps in determining the treatment for weight loss.
  3. Luteal Phase Defect: The luteal phase refers to the phase between the ovulation and the menses. The ideal time period for this phase is 14 days. LPD is generally caused by improper ovulation, and thus improving the quality of the follicles is necessary to correct the situation.

How Does Being Overweight Affect Conception Rate

As per a study which was published in the British Medical Journal, if women are too lean or too obese, they can have difficulty in conceiving and that fat distribution has an effect on the body. Women who have a large waist-hip ratio have difficulty in conceiving, and apple shaped women also face the same trouble. Usually, women who have PCOS have an apple shaped body.

Risk of Miscarriage Due To Being Overweight

Women suffering from PCOS and obesity have more chances of miscarriage as compared to others. The reason is that women with PCOS have increased LH, which tends to affect the pregnancy. However, it is noticed that even if excess fat does not play any role in pregnancy, women with PCOS have excess weight which creates high risk as compared to the others.

Finding Help for Overweight Issues is a Good Idea

Seeking help if you are overweight is always advisable. Consulting a good gynecologist can help along with weight management and fertility treatment. You shouldn't have any hesitations, and all the questions should be asked freely so as to get a holistic idea of the treatment. The doctor might suggest some tests and also conduct a physical examination of the lymph nodes and the abdomen, to check the ovaries and the uterus. Post physical examination, an internal examination of the cervix to check for infections is done, and if need be, a pap smear might be collected and sent to the lab for culture. At times, a trans-vaginal or an abdominal ultrasound might also be done to rule out the possibilities of abnormalities or others cysts. Tests to check the levels of hormones are also done.

It is always a wise decision to know how being overweight can impact the chances of becoming pregnant. Working towards losing weight and getting it under healthy BMI levels, can lead to the restoration of the hormones and in turn make you healthier.

Try to reduce your weight if overweight. Continue walking. Avoid fatty and carbohydrate rich food. Try this for 2 months. If the blood sugar levels are still high then you need medical management.

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?
usually thyroid issues do not occur in isolation. It is important to look at relative deficiencies of other hormones that influence metabolism. Nevertheless, a simplistic answer to your question would be to go for what is known as a" hormone friendly" diet also known as" non-inflammatory" diet. Iodine supplements also help, but it is better to have a structured, supervised supplementation regimen.

Following are the tips to control diabetes: 1-losing extra weight: helps lower your blood pressure and cholesterol too. Waist of more than 80 cm in women & 90 cm in man are at risk 2- constant and regular food timings: improves metabolic activity and helps reducing weight. 3- split meals and eat in moderate amount 4- no long gaps and skipping of meals:-never miss out breakfast. 5- no overeating:-never eat in a bulk on one time remember to eat food slowly & chew well. 6- proper exercise and work outs: regular brisk walking for 30 min. Five times a week is best. Cycling, swimming, dancing can also be done. Do not eat right away after a workout. 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-avoid fried foods, meat, fats and sweets. 9- take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats and include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid white bread, pasta, pizza, candies, and snacks. 10-drink enough fluids:-keep your body well hydrated. 11. Fresh vegetables and fruits. Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible 12- avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads/salads etc. 13-avoid alcohol consumption:-alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. 14- dairy products:-dairy products are high on fat. So consume skimmed milk products, low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Try green tea instead.
