Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is to have a very strict blood sugar control like fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8. Ed is a common problem occurring in patients with diabetes due affection of small vessels supplying the penile musculature because of persistent hyperglycemia. So primary need is to achieve strict control as mentioned earlier. Plus there are some drugs available belonging to pde iv inhibitors, which do help. Thanks for the question.

Hi lybrate user. I think there is something wrong in your report. The fasting sugar should be less and pp should be more. After all the sugar content of your blood is bound to go up after you have taken your meal. I suggest you check up with your lab again and clear this confusion or go in for a test again. Fasting sugar below 100 is ok. 100-126 is considered pre-diabetic and over 126 is considered a case of diabetes. Since there seems to be some confusion in your report please clear it and then you can consult through private questions.

Hi, Lybrate users, Your fasting blood sugar level Indicates the condition of pre-diabetic. If you are careful about this then it can be managed through ayurvedic medicines, restricted diet and regular Yoga practices.

The levels of t3 t4 and tsh should be worked up. A thyroid scan may be necessary to assess levels of thyroid functioning. After this a decision can be taken whether to withold your thyronorm pending a follow up or not. As far as vit d levels are concerned they can be continued based on their levels in the blood.

Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is not in control then various symptoms keep disturbing, plus weight gain also continues. So it is essential o bring tsh level down to 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then all symptoms will disappear plus efforts to control weight also will be successful. Thanks.

PGDHHM, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Normal range is 2.5 to 7.5 milligrams/deciliter (mg/dL) ..It varies little from lab to lab. Dietary fibre may help to lower uric acid level. Avoid meats such as liver, kidney. Low alcohol consumption,weight loss will helpful too. Reduce consumption of cauliflower, mushrooms, legumes, gravies,spinach. Hope this helps u.

I ask my question is my wife test thyroid test in test report (TSH)=8.37. What is the report meaning please tell me sir.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 8.37 mU/L means she has sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Usually there is no treatment given. But test needs to be repeated after 6 months to see if there is any further increase in TSH level. However, if at the current level the person has any symptoms related to under active thyroid gland like weight gain, irregular periods, excess periods, muscle and joint pains, dry skin and hair and hair fall etc, then treatment has to be started. Plus if there is any plan to have a baby then treatment has to be started. Thanks.
