Thyroid medicine

MD - Medicine, MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Gurgaon
Thyroid medicine

Many patients suffering from primary hypothyroidism ask whether taking long-term levothyroxine will have adverse side effects. Well, levothyroxine just replaces the deficiency of thyroid hormone in your body, it does the functions which thyroid hormone would have done in your body if you did not have a thyroid hormone deficiency. So the question of side effects doesn't arise, as its just a replacement of what your body is deficient in. However, a dose of levothyroxine needs to be titrated before maintaining TSH within normal limits. After initiation of thyroxine, TSH is rechecked in 4-6 weeks and dose adjusted. once TSH COMES IN NORMAL RANGE , thereafter it is checked on an annual basis and dose altered if needed. PLEASE DO NOT STOP , INCREASE OR DECREASE LEVOTHYROXIN without asking your doctor.

I am diabetic. I have developed foot problem, I feel padding while walking. Please advise.
Long standing diabetes causes problems with peripheral nerves - called diabetic neuropathy. Sensations get affected, leading to a feeling that one is walking some soft bed or something of that sort. Do you also have any sensory loss, or altered sensation in feet, around toes etc? get a proper assessment of the sensory affection by a bithesiometer examination, plus use proper fitting foot wear and avoid injuries to the foot. Plus keep excellent sugar control. Seek advice of your physician early.

As your all reports are normal you just do maintain proper diet and do regular exercise.These two can reduce your medicinal dose even can reduce insulin taking.Do exercise like yoga,swimming,walking,push ups.You can use fenugreek seeds with 1/2 glass water on an empty stomach in the morning but you have to adjust your medication.Eat small amount of food more frequently.Take food 5-6 times instead of 3 big meals.Take lots of watery and whole fruits,vegetables.Use unrefined foods but not more.Take extra protein.Use healthy fats small amount.Avoid sugar, juice,fast foods,junk foods,processed foods.No underground vegetables,banana,pumpkin.Avoid smoking,alcohol.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Stay stress free and take proper rest.You can use nutritional supplements to control diabetes.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take. even any side effect you should take this medicines. ignore side effects.pl.

Parkinsons disease is a neuro degenerative disease. Unfortunately there is no permanent treatment for this condition. For initial symptom relief doctors give anticholinergics, antihistaminics, but latter dopamine agonists or dopamine precursures (levodopa) is needed. I your case, it appears to be an early onset and already advanced case of parkinsonism which is associates with high grade dementia, rigidity, tremour, inability to walk. In this condition levodopa+carbidopa/benserazide-. 4-. 8g/day or ropinirole or pramiprexole might be needed. Along with that, regular physiotherapy will help a bit. Proper nurshing care may be needed. Thank you. Take care.

I am 49 year old man and I have sugar type 2 last 4 year. What should i do?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am 49 year old man and I have sugar type 2 last 4 year. What should i do?
I am sure you must be already taking the medicine advised by your physician. In addition to continuing that you have to adapt a more regulated life style. Also check your sugar levels more frequently so as to keep a constant track of it. Also check your hba1c level it should be around 6%. Exercise regularly for more than 1 hour a day, do not eat sweets, sugar and deep fried foods. Take the diet as advised by physician and maintain weight near normal for height and age. Bmi < 23 kg/m2. If you want any specific advise please inform me current sugar levels and hba1c % and the medication being taken, plus activity level, then I may be able to guide.

Remember you have Thalassemia and that is major cause in your problem. So no permanent cure may be possible but if you stop thinking it as a problem and stay tension free, I am sure you will enjoy your sex more better. Eat fresh fruits and fresh vegetables and go for morning brisk walk for one hour and rest of your body complaints will slowly go away. Tension too cause strained muscles at neck and shoulders which on long run may cause pain. Follow that, I am sure it will help you.

Kya suger patients ka jhutha kha sakte hai?

Kya suger patients ka jhutha kha sakte hai?
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 n 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. For further assistance you can concern me privately
