I am having thyroid problem for 1 year. My age is 18. My level is 14.1.i want to get solution for this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The value 14.1 mentioned is it of TSH? Because nothing is mentioned. If it is TSH then it is high, signifying you have hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with Levothyroxine. Dosage depends on body weight, TSH value and T4 level. Looking at your weight and height, it is clear that with a BMI of 27.34 kgs/M2, you are over weight. This could be due to hypothyroidism. Unless hypothyroidism is brought under control, efforts to reduce weight will not be successful. It is better if you come in a private consultation with full details of thyroid test results, I will be able to guide specifically. Treating hypothyroidism is very essential, otherwise it can cause problems like weight gain, slow heart rate, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, irregular menstrual periods, excess flow, swelling of face and lower limbs anxiety and later problems with fertility etc. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your testosterone value is in normal range. There is no reason to take that hormone. Lack libido can be seen in hypothyroidism. It is important to have tsh values around 3 to 4 milli units/l, then only it is considered under good control and most of the symptoms improve. Unnecessarily using testosterone is an invitation for its side effects, which include: acne, oily skin, mild fluid retention, stimulation of prostate tissue, increased urination, decreased stream, increased risk of developing prostate cancer, breast enlargement and increased blood clots. So my suggestion is check tsh and try bring it to above mentioned range. Thanks for the question.

I am 58 years old, male with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At present I am put on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. Of late, I am thinking of replacing Amisulpride with Paliperidone 3 mg OD (Of course, only after the consent of my Psychiatrist, with whom I have an appointment next week). In the mean time, I want to know, how safe it is and will it react with Sizopin? Please confirm.

If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication. As such paliperidone has no serious side effects but can cause stiffness of muscles and shaking in some pts.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose is not in control. When in control fasting should be closer to 100 mg, after food 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Mentioned levels are too high. This means either the drugs being taken are not adequate or your diet and exercise are not as needed. You need to re look at the total treatment. Thanks.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

I have a question that a patient with diabetes having stroke what is the connection between diabetes n stroke?
Our bodies need a hormone called insulin to turn sugar (from our food) into energy. If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not produce insulin. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin. This means your body has difficulty absorbing the sugars from food. If diabetes is left untreated or uncontrolled it increases the risk of vascular disease (disease of the blood vessels). This is when your artery walls become hard and narrow. This increases the risk of stroke, particularly ischaemic stroke. People with diabetes are also more likely to have high blood pressure. This can also increase your risk of further strokes. If you have diabetes it is important to maintain healthy blood sugar levels to reduce your risk of having a stroke or second stroke.

Hello, Looking at weight and height this person has grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.74 kgs/M2. This itself is the major contributor for increased blood glucose. His ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, he carries an excess weight of 25 kgs. By brining down the weight to near normal blood glucose will come down. Fasting 127 mgg & 137 mg suggests there is diabetes. Check the HbA1c%, that will give a clear idea. SGPT is more, so alcohol has to be stopped. Taking even occasionally is also not advised. Diet should be restricted to provide calories based on ideal body weight (67 X 20 =1340 calories/day). Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, after food blood sugar level of 188 mg, means" impaired glucose tolerance" (igt), which is called as pre diabetic state. This mean any time soon you may develop diabetes. At this stage usually no drug treatment is recommended. However, I suggest that you should get a complete diabetes profile done. That is get fasting, pp sugar and hba1c% tested. That will give a clearer picture then we will be able to decide whether there is any need for treatment. T2 diabetes even though a hereditary disease, it is also a preventable condition, provided one controls weight (bmi <23 kg/m2), (your bmi is 27.77kg/m2), takes balnced restricted diet, avoids too much sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing foods and refrains from smoking and alcohol. Therefore, now start exercising daily for 1 hour and try to reduce your weight to about 71 kgs. (bmi 23kg/m2).

Can Food Allergies Be the Likely Cause of Your Infertility?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Can Food Allergies Be the Likely Cause of Your Infertility?

Infertility in a woman refers to the inability to conceive after having regular unprotected sex. Cases of unexplained infertility have been on the rise recently. Though obstructed fallopian tubes and ovulation disorders are some of the common causes of infertility, reasons pertaining to dietary changes can also be responsible. Food allergies and dietary changes affect infertility to a great extent; and if you're struggling with conception or infertility, reviewing your diet can help.

Gluten is a basic food constituent that is likely to cause infertility. Gluten is a protein found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Among the general population, women suffering from unexplained infertility have a higher incidence of gluten intolerance. Gluten intolerance is also related to miscarriages, and if left undiagnosed can lead to malabsorption of micronutrients like iron and zinc. Following and maintaining a gluten-free diet may relieve a sufferer from the symptoms. Try and include gluten free cereals like rice, corn and gluten free oats to manage the situation.

Inflammation - Another connection of food allergies and infertility would be inflammation. Inflammation occurs when the food allergens reach the stomach. This inflammation, if heightened, can cause damage to the fallopian tubes and the ovary. The body responds to the food allergens by treating it like a foreign substance that needs to be eradicated, and when your immune system is subjected to chronic inflammation, it can lead to infertility.

Additionally, apart from food allergies, even the consumption of certain foods and beverages can be a reason behind infertility, with those being rich in caffeine being a major cause. Increased consumption of caffeine can augment the risk of infertility and delayed conception. However, avoiding caffeine and eliminating problematic foods along with a careful scrutiny of your diet can increase your chances of getting pregnant.
