your tsh level is very high . you can take tab. thyroxine 125mcg before meal in morning daily. where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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. flax oil, 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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

As far as I know, sugar doesn't change vision so quickly. Diabetes does affect blood vessels in eye and may cause retinopathy. But change of vision may not be seen so quickly. Best thing is go to a good ophthalmologist and get her retinoscopy done. Doctor will find out the real cause of poor vision.

Dear lybrate-user the stage you are in right now is little bit high. Good thing is you have started to walk, now keep doing it regularly. Secondly avoid eating out, avoid sugar, avoid oily stuff, use pure cooking oil nd never use refined or double refined oil. If you can eat methi ka dana regularly for 3 months without a break your sugar will come to normal. Just soak 1 tea spoon methi ka dana in water overnight and drink that water in morning and chew the methi ka dana.

Diabetes and insulin at young age is depressing. See some juvenile diabetics and their life style in real life or net groups, you will feel you are not alone. They have achieved so much living with diabetes. You need not achieve like them. But you will not be worried about other's facial expression and feel bad. You can not live alone. The earlier you get adjusted to others expression, the better it is for you. You have to go out and mix up with all sorts of people. Start with known classmates and cousins with whom you are comfortable. Slowly expand to others. Best of luck.

I have erection dysfunction. I am diabetic but always in control. Sugar level always under 95.

I have erection dysfunction. I am diabetic but always in control. Sugar level always under 95.
Mr. lybrate-user, long standing diabetes mellitus even when under good control does damage small blood vessels, due to which many complications result, erectile dysfunction is being one of those. If there is uncontrolled diabetes then it can lead to ED much earlier. Ideally blood glucose should be FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8, to say diabetes is is in very good control. To treat ED one can use PDE-V inhibitors as a temporary relief. These drugs help erection. Thanks.

I am a 64 years old male. Had my CABG 2 years back with my saphaneous vein removed from right leg for the procedure (plus the LIMA, it was a 2 vessel CAD). Since last 1 year, my right feet and ankle are swelling up (at times) and more importantly, severe pain is troubling me frequently (but not always) in the inner soft padding of the heel. Uric acid in blood test showed 5. 6. Ortho says the problem is due to excessive uric acid and there is no cure. Cardio says the uric acid is within control. Consult an ortho. What should I do?

This condition can be due to uric acid problem (called gout). Not all patients with symptomatic gout will have a high uric acid level. So serum uric acid is not a good indicator of you symptoms. Although gout has no permanent cure, it is treatable with a long lasting relief. Plantar fasciitis is another condition which can cause heel pain.

1. Apply mahabhringraj oil on your scalp and massage follow by giving hot water fomentation. You can put 1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils before going to bed. 2. Take pranacharya allergin capsule twice a day. Increase the intake of proteins such as soybean and egg white. It is advisable to avoid tea, coffee, spicy food, fermented food and junk food. Only use ayurvedic shampoo on your scalp and avoid synthetic shampoos. Do pranayama early morning..

Her Recent test of hemoglobin is 7.9. She is also a sugar patient. What should she do now for her btr treatment.

Her Recent test of hemoglobin is 7.9. She is also a sugar patient. What should she do now for her btr treatment.
Mr. Lybrate-user, with hemoglobin 7.9 g/100 ml, her anemia is quite severe. This needs to be urgently corrected. If she also has t2 dm, then controlling sugar levels near to normal is equally important. Both these need specific treatment. For anemia improvement, her diet has to be healthy - plenty of green leafy vegetables, salads, organ meats, eggs, fishes and milk products like cheese etc. Please let me know the weight mentioned above (81 kg) is it belonging to the patient? because that shows the person is close to have grade 1 obesity. If that is the case then dietary approach has to change. Blood sugars should be fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8, these levels should be achieved to keep diabetes in control. Apart from healthy diet, necessary drugs, exercise for 1 hour is also required.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are concerned about your father's diabetes. It could had been better had you provided us with last prescription, latest fasting sugars, hba1c levels and any other recent relevant investigations along with the complete medication list. For the successful treatment of diabetes it is advised if he can start exercising on a regular basis preferably 30-45 minutes, diet modifications with low carbohydrate and high fibre diet along with medications as advised. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.
