Urine pregnancy test determines the pregnancy. If you want to know definitely if she is pregnant you can even do a beta hcg test. For diabetes it is better to do blood sugar test than urine sugar test.

Dear Sir | Ma'am, I'm 23 years old, Female. I'm pregnant since 5 months. Since the start of my pregnancy doctor didn't advised to do the thyroid test and on my fifth month due to shift in the location the other doctor had suggested me to take thyroid test and my values where T3 1.36ng\dl, T4 - 7.69 ng \ dl and TSH - 5.420 uiU\ml. So the doctor said it is quite high in your fifth month so prescribed throform 50 mcg. I heard the first trimester baby totally depends upon mom for his\her thyroid. So does my thyroid level would have impacted my babies brain? My query is how often the thyroid range elevates? Since during my fifth month it found to be 5.420 so approximately how much it could have been in my first trimester?

Priyaji, As you have mentioned in the first trimester fetus entirely depends on maternal thyroxine, hence even symptom less hypothyroidism also may affect the fetal brain development. Clinical trials show that the development of intelligence may be affected. Recommended TSH levels through out the pregnancy should be 2 to 2.4 milli units /ml. Please maintain TSH at this level.

Reason of diabetes in early age like 30 years pla tell me I am suffering this problem.
Dear Lybrate User, There are two types of Diabetes Type 1 and type 2.causes including the followiing:- Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system destroying the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. *This is called an autoimmune reaction, or autoimmune cause, because the body is attacking itself. *There is no specific diabetes causes, but the following triggers may be involved: *Viral or bacterial infection *Chemical toxins within food *Breathing difficulties (e.g., sleep apnea, asthma) *Unidentified component causing autoimmune reaction *Underlying genetic disposition may also be a type 1 diabetes cause. **Type 2 diabetes causes are usually multifactorial - more than one diabetes cause is involved. Often, the most overwhelming factor is a family history of type 2 diabetes. This is the most likely type 2 diabetes cause. *There are a variety of risk factors for type 2 diabetes, any or all of which increase the chances of developing the condition. These include: *Obesity *Living a sedentary lifestyle *Increasing age *Bad diet

If she has hypothyroidism and not in control, then weight increase does occur. When on treatment, tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units /l, if higher than that, then weight will continue. All efforts to reduce weight will be unsuccessful. So please let me know the tsh and t4 levels (present), then I may be able to help. Thanks for the question.

My mother is suffering from uric acid problem. Can you please tell me how to get rid off by this. Using home remedies.

General Physician,
My mother is suffering from uric acid problem. Can you please tell me how to get rid off by this. Using home remedies.
You should tell the uric acid level to guide you completely. Apple cider vinegar, cherries, lemon juice, olive oil and drinking plenty of water helps optimize uric acid filtering. It helps dilute the uric acid and stimulates the kidneys to eliminate excess amounts from the body through urine.

To know the whole things you have to understand basics of medical science. As of stopping medicine, pl do not think of it. Having been dependent on such drugs for three decades, you can't switch to other things suddenly and that too at this stage. When chemical diuretics are given (in HTN/ oedema/ renal problems etc), electrolyte depletion takes place as a side effect such as potassium depletion etc which is again supplied through potassium drugs. This vicious cycle goes in. Here Ayurveda is different. SLOW but natural. Diuretics are such that there would not be electrolyte imbalance/ depletion. But this doesn't mean that allopathy is bad. It has wonderful life saving developments to its credit. On the other hand Ayurveda's stress on lifestyle and natural medicine has wonderful results but its limited too esp in critical life conditions. Need is to respect both approaches where needed. It has to be understood by both ailing humanity and medical fraternity. I would suggest you to gradually supplement your mother's treatment with herbals for introducing little comfortable life ahead without compromising on medical facilities. If agree, pl consult with more details.

Dear , your blood glucose levels are almost doubled, especially your hba1c test. You need to strictly follow a high fibre, low carb, moderate protein, low fat diet plan. Immediately take expert advice, and I am sure you are going to get back to normal. Try to chew 10 tender guava leaves daily morning on empty stomach and swallow the juice excluding the roughage.

How we can check the disease of diabetes in patient and what are the precaution should be take to free from diabetes.
Mr Sudhir, To find out if a person has diabetes or not following test have to be done : Fasting and PP blood sugar and HbA1c%. If fasting sugar level is above 126 mg / 100 ml and /or PP sugar level is above 200 mg/100 ml and HbA1c% is above 6.5%, then diabetes Mellitus is confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed then one has to take proper medication which will depend upon blood sugar level. The treatment has to be taken for life time. Theres is no other option. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are equally important.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then only option is to take thyroxine tablets in adequate dosage and control TSH levels with in the recommended range of 3 to 4 mU/L. Plus treatment has to be for lifetime. Plus for a young girl like you it is absolutely essential to control it, as uncontrolled hypothyroidism affects menstrual cycles, can lead to infertility, overweight and many more problems. Thanks.
