Your diabetes and thyroid seems controlled for now but the requirement keeps changing to your body needs. So keep track of your sugars atleast once a week, and tsh atleast once in 3 months to know if your current doses are optimum for you.

Your blood sugar values are well within control limits according to american diabetes association good control means fasting sugar 70-130 mg/dl ppbs 70-180 mg/dl hba1c < 7 bp < 140/80 ldl-c < 100 check whether your blood pressure and ldl-cholesterol if all parameters are controlled then you need fundiscopiy- examination of your retina (inner membrane of eye) by an expeperienced ophthalmologist. Retinopathy if detected can be controlled/ treated by laaer therapy etc. And your vision will improve. All the best regards

Mr. Lybrate-user, I think earlier question is also your only about low lipids. In that you had not mentioned about hypothyroidism. This is the main reason for weight gain and probably affecting lipids along with statin. At tsh 11.6 you have hypothyroidism, which needs to be treated right away. With regards.

Dear . There s nothing to worry. Just keep a close watch. Include daily exercise of at least half hour in your schedule. Keep check of body weight. Avoid sugar/sweet intake in excesses. Drink plenty of fluids and get your hba1c repeated after 3 months and fasting. Pp sugar after a week. Just let me know the reports. At this time nothing more than this required. One additional drug could be added but only after a repeat b. Sugar f/ pp report.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it appears you have fairly severe hypothyroidism. You have not mentioned what is the t4 and t3 level. Other parameters look with in the range. To treat hypothyroidism you have to start on thyroxine tablets. 10 mcg is too low a dose. It has to be begin with 50 to 75 mcg, then check tsh level after 6 weeks and then if level has come down to the expected extent continue the same dose. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, if diabetes is not well controlled it leads to first microalbuminuria and later albumin uria (protein uria). Hence primary need is to get blood sugar in excellent control. Then only there is a possibility to reduce protein uria. Plus proper diet control and if she has high blood pressure, that also needs to be controlled effectively. Thanks.

My brother's wife is cancer cured - left breast, more than 8 years. She is healthy now, working as well. I would like to know whether her daughter, 26, is taking medication for thyroid, may have this disease on hereditary basis, in future.

See, to ascertain whether it was genetically related she has to check her BRCA genes, usually BRCA 1and 2both are checked and if positive then chances of inherited breast cancers are high. Anyhow, it may be slightly psychologically troublesome as not all cases will develop cancer and there may be other risk factors aswell. She should still go for regular breast self examination on monthly basis, five days after periods are over and can go for mammography after may be 10years as she is only 26.

Mr Sanjeet, If you have been diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus (T2), then only way to remain fit and healthy is to take prescribed medication regularly, without missing the dose, take a planned restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of physical exercise. Avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Refrain from alcohol and smoking. This changed life style has to be adapted for your life. The disease does not go away, you have to learn to live with it.

Lybrate-user, your tsh level of 4.03 milli units/l is good, shows hypothyroidism is in good control. There is no need to reduce the dose, because on treatment to achieve good control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units. In addition continue to follow a proper restricted diet avoiding foods that affect thyroxine action ; like soy beans, soy containing products and cabbage, cauliflower, radish, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus use whole grain flours for roti and chapati. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Always use iodinated salt. Check tsh values once in 6 months or so. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Low B12 can lead to megaloblstic anemia (anemia with large RBCs), peripheral neuritis, glossitis, hyperflexia, loss of proprioception, poor co-ordination, ataxia and affective behavioral changes. It is necessary get the condition corrected soon. Simultaneously it is very important to keep blood glucose in excellent control. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs is needed. If diabetes is in control then fasting sugar should be closer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c should be <6.8%. If these levels are not achieved then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes. Taking milk is good but sugar control and overall diet restrictions must be adhered tp.
