My mother was diagnosed with thyroid around a couple of years back. Now again the swelling has grown and on getting the test as per the dr's advice, the results have shown the increased thryoid again. She is on medication from last 2 weeks but swelling is still there. So is there a minimum time after which the medicine's effects can be seen?

Please tell me when she was diagnosed of hypothyroidism two years back was the medication continued without any break? hypothyroidism is a condition which will need lifelong treatment with thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage. One can not stop the drug in between. Swelling may disappear or remain even on regular treatment. Do not worry about the swelling, but continue the treatment.

Thyroid hormone is needed during organogenesis and plays vital role in IQ and brain development. It is advisable to keep TSH below 2.5 before and through out pregnancy for optimal brain development of baby. You may require to increase Thyroxine dose. Get your Free T4 and anti TPO test done and consult any diabetologist or endocrinologist for further management.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid report suggests that there is hypothyroidism. This needs regular treatment with levothyroxine tablets and control the TSH level. Thanks.

Hi, I am having diabetic problem. Need few diet maintain prescription. Please suggest.
The increase in the blood sugar levels damages nerves and blood vessels. It also leads to complications like cardiovascular diseases, strokes, kidney problems, blindness, dental problems and amputations. High blood glucose levels also damage nerves and blood vessels. Diabetes can also lead to depression, fertility issues, and increased risk of other diseases and lack of mobility as the age of the person increases. It is very difficult to find out what exactly triggers diabetes, but health experts say that genes and environmental factors are responsible for rise in blood glucose levels. There are two types of diabetes- type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Let us study the causes that give rise to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a grave medical condition, but with a healthy diet and regular exercise, managing the condition becomes a child? s play. Here are a handful of diabetes home remedies every diabetic can rely on to keep fluctuations of sugar levels under control. Bitter gourd: bitter gourds are one among the most effective ways for preventing sugar level fluctuations. Being a safe vegetable, this iron-rich gourd can be consumed by anyone. It influences the glucose metabolism in the body and helps stimulate pancreatic insulin secretion. Known to thwart off insulin resistance, bitter gourd is equally beneficial for people suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Drink a glass of bitter gourd juice, flavored with a little honey, every morning to keep diabetes away. Guava is rich in both vitamin c and fiber, both that help in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. A very good home remedy for diabetes. Just peel the skin and consume one fruit daily to reap its benefits get some physical activity daily to burn calories and stay in shape. This will also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Have a lot of fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains any queries inform me.

If you are not able to lose weight in spite of having a good diet and exercise schedule then you should probably get your thyroid levels checked which may be the root cause why you are not able to lose weight if your thyroid is not under control so I will advise you to get a complete thyroid profile and get back to me with the reports for an individualized advice.

I am 35 years old male and I had taking thyrox 100 mcg last 5 years but nowadays I have problem with gases and goes to latrine 4 to 5 times a day then what should I do? I had used dose of thyrox 100 mcg to 50 mcg?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If yu are on treatment for hypothyroidism (100 mcg Thyroxine), then best way to judge whether treatment is adequate or not is to check TSH level, it should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. With that most of the symptoms will be in check So whether to reduce or change the dose can only be answered by looking at TSH level. As regards the other complaints those could be related to indigestion. Please increase the water intake and also do regular exercise, which will help in better digestion. Most important is to control hypothyroidism well. Thanks.

Your number 150 and 250 are high. It should be 100/200. It means you are not regulating your diet properly. Added to that you have BP too. You should be extra careful now. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Take extra care of your health now.
