lybrate-user, Flaky scalp may occur due to dryness and dandruff. Typhoid is an infection, which by now must have been well cured, so there is no need to worry about it. High TSH, (8mU/L), can actually lead to dry skin and scalp too. Plus high TSH leads to definite weight gain. Looking at weight and height with a BMI of 30.07 kgs/M2, there is grade 1 obesity. Your ideal weigh should be 60 kgs. (excess of 17 kgs). So you need to look at treating the possible hypothyroidism, which will mostly take care of all the symptoms. Thanks.

Mr Pranjul, If you get a fasting and after food blood sugar check, it is easy to find out whether diabetes is there. If is present then only option is to start treatment with proper anti diabetic drugs either oral or with insulin injections. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are required.

Dear lybrate-user, you are not advised to take honey with warm water. Honey contains 70 calories 10 time sugar. As a diabetic patient carry on your medicines and have physical exercise 30 minutes morning. Take 100% safe ayurveda drugs to control your sugar level. Be attentive to your daily foods. Ok.

Recommend - start treatment immediately, stop taking sugar in you every day meal. Eat healthy food which contain vitamins and minerals, start exercise. Drink plenty of water. Insulinum 30 schwabe - 2 drops in 1/4 the cup of luke warm water in the morning before meal. Dibonil sbl - 10 drops in 1/4the cup of water, half an hour before meal, 3 times a day normal blood sugars. A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 110 mg/dl. A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dl.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

Weight loss in diabetes usually signifies uncontrolled diabetes. He probably needs to change/or adjust his anti diabetic medicine dosages he may improve faster with short course of insulin therapy (if he is not taking). Some times associated illness like hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, hiv, cancer could also be responsible for weight loss. He may need investigation for same if no improvement in weight after diabetes control. He may improve faster if changes his diet to high protein, nutritionally rich diet if his all other reports are normal and he can improve to normal weight suitable for his height.

No need to worry about these medical results. First of all try to take a curative treatment for your thyroid problems. Do not worry about High triglycerides. It will come down gradually with some simple medicines. Do regular exercise and follow low fatty diet habits. Include more salads in your plate. Avoid fluorine products from your day to day activities. (eg. High flourine Tooth paste, etc)

Swetaji, looking at your weight and height your bmi is only 20.99 kg/m2, which is good. There is no need to worry about the weight. As regards tsh levels during pregnancy and even to conceive, recommended levels are about 2 milli units to 2.4 milli units. So before deciding about conception, tsh has to be brought down. Present level will not allow conception.

My mother has thyroid problem. Due to this her neck was swelling and have itching to gulp anything. Her thyroid report reading as follows:- Thyroid Thyronine T3= 2.48 ng/ml (0.79-1.58 ng/ml) thyroxine T4=16.0 ug/ml (4.00-11.00 ug/ml) Thyroid Stimulating hormone Tsh=0.010 uIU/ml (0.28-5.00 uIU/ml) And doctor prescribed her TAB. Thyrocab So what will we do now this treatment is ok with the recent thyroid conditions or not please help me to get a proper treatment.

MBBS, DNB
Nuclear Medicine Physician, Mumbai
Kindly get an evaluation done by a DM Endocrinology person at the earliest. Low TSH can be due to either the gland that is function more which appears to be more likely in your mothers case. However, low TSH can also be due to leakage of thyroid hormones from the gland which is caused due to thyroiditis that is self limiting condition. Since both these conditions have different treatment it is always better to find the cause for low TSH before starting thyroid medicine. This is done by performing a Nuclear scan under supervision of an Endocrinologist. If nuclear scan shows that both the lobes of thyroid are functioning more then thyrocab treatment as has been given can be started and repeat blood tests be done after 6 weeks. Hope this helps.
