Lybrate-user, if tsh level is high then conception will not occur. It is recommended that tsh should be <2 mu/l before conception. Similarly trough out the pregnancy also levels should be: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mu/l, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 mu/l & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mu/l. With these levels good fetal development and healthy baby is delivered. If levels are high then pregnancy out come is not good. So please see that before attempting for the baby recommended tsh level is achieved. If you need any help please come in a private conversation with mentioning of current tsh levels. Thanks.

It seems to be a condition called trigger finger. It is usually a complication of uncontrolled diabetes. If physiotherapy therapy doesn't help, she will require a minor surgery to correct the defect. But most importantly, she should visit her diabetologist for change of medicines and strict sugar control and a renewal in her diet. Also, control of blood pressure and cholesterol is necessary.

Dear lybrate-user, little unlucky to have diabetes at this age. More important at this stage is that we determine what exactly is the type of diabetes you're suffering from. If you're only on multiple dose of insulin then it is supposed to be type 1. But if you're obese with family history of diabetes and you are on oral tablets then mostly it is type 2 diabetes. Fruit juices are better avoid as they contain only fructose and no fibers. Once in a while you may take liberty though! eating all fruits keeping in mind the calorific value of that fruit is always better.

If you have cough without sputum (sputum is a mixture of saliva and mucus coughed up from the respiratory tract), I would like to advise you to - 1. Take proper rest/ drink lot of fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Do warm saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 3. Take a cough syrup (grilinctus or banadryl) 10 ml three times a day for 2-3 days. 4. In case you also have headache, body-ache, or fever, take tablet paracetamol 500 mg after taking food. Maximum 3 tablets with gap of 8 hours can be taken in a day. If you have cough with sputum please follow - 1. Take proper rest/ drink hot fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Take steamy showers, and use a humidifier. A hot shower can help a cough by loosening secretion in the nose. 3. Warm saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 4. Syrup ambrodil - 1 teaspoonful three times a day for 3 days.

I am 19 years old male and I am suffering from thyroid from 2 years to get rid from this I am using a medicine named thyronorm. Bt still it is not giving relief to me my face always swells after waking from bed. I can not understand what should I do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism has to be treated with thyroxine tablets as being done with you. However, it is important to bring tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units /l, then only all the symptoms are well in check. So please check tsh and if the level is higher than mentioned above, dosage may have to be increased. Along with this you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, radish, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus take whole grain products, avoid refined flour (maida) made products. Consume great deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Also eat good deal of fruits. Exercise regularly to keep weight in check. Thanks for the question.

Hi Yes it is safe. But check your kidney and liver function frequently as the dose needs to be adjusted if there is any derangement in the kidney and liver function test.

Diabetes control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. 

Even if you are pre-diabetic or borderline diabetic, or diabetes is part of your family, it is important to follow a diabetic diet to prevent diabetes.

"A diabetes diet should be high on fibre, must contain milk without cream, buttermilk, fresh seasonal fruits, green vegetables, etc" But remember to consume these components in moderation.

Diabetes diet for Indians should have the ratio of 60:20:20 for carbs, fats and proteins. "Per day calorie intake should be between 1,500-1,800 calories with a proportion of 60:20:20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively" a diabetes diet should "have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan"

Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions. We'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack.

recipe for diabetes diet for Indians:

- One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.
- Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach.
- Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals. If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts.

Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option.
Diabetes Control: Diabetic Diet Tips

High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet.

Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy.

Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others.

Small frequent meals:

A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc.

A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets. He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern).

What not to do:
Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation).
Have lots of fluid.
Limit intake of alcohol.

Should you have non-veg?

In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat.

The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet.

I have read your query and understood your concerns. Lack of concentration can be a part of anxiety, depression and lots of stress. If you are having any persistent stress in your life then it needs to be addressed first. Relaxation therapy like yoga and meditation will help you a lot. Following are some tips to increase your mood and concentration: - engage in your hobbies - play indoor games with your children like carrom, chess, puzzle games etc. - play sudoku and solve crossword puzzles - talk to friends and go for outing whenever you are free - keep distance from alcohol and other drugs - make a schedule of activities to perform as per priority and follow the schedule - if you are forgetting appointments or meeting then make use of application for reminder - become social person if you are not - if your mind is distracted somewhere start counting backwards from 100. By the time you reach 50, you shall find yourself relieved. - keep yourself updated about current political affairs - take help from friends - take a good night sleep of at least 8 hours.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner.

By thyroid you mean hypothyroidism is it not? that condition can be controlled only by taking correct dosage of thyroxine tablets once daily in the morning. Thyroxine is the hormone secreted by thyroid, which is deficient in hypothyroidism.

Lybrate-user, to reduce or stop hair fall tsh level has to come down to about 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level is higher than this, then hair fall may not stop. So please check what is the current tsh level. Rest of the things like using a shampoo and various oils etc is really of no consequence. If dandruff is more you may use some anti fungal scalp lotion along with shampoos. But most important is the tsh level. Thanks.
