My daughter 29 years was taking thyronom 75 mg. For 2 years. Same dosage continues after her delivery in march also. Today the thyroid level was checked and found at a low level of 0.05. Please advise on further dosage or continuation of medicine.

Anesthesiologist,
If hypothyroidism is detected during pregnancy, and continued after delivery, now stop thyroxine for 3 months and repeat thyroid profile. On the readings treatment will be reviewed. If you have any questions consult me on p. Consultation.

In hypothyroidism it is good to consume whole grain flour made bread (chapatis). Gram flour is good enough. Nuts which are good in hypothyroidism are brazil nut, macadamia & hazelnut. Peanut (ground nut to be avoided). Fresh fruits and green vegetables are good. (to restrict use of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli). Whole grain cereal foods mus be taken several hours after taking the medication. Tha gap between medicine and chapati has to be more than 3 - 4 hrs.

diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure at least for now. 120 mg fasting is not showing presence of diabetes. It falls in pre - diabetes state. Following are the criteria to diagnose: 1) normal: fbs 70 to 110 mg/100 ml, pp <140 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <5.9 2) pre - diabetes: fbs 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg, hba1c% 5.9 to 6.4 3) diabetes: fbs 126 and above, pp 200 mg and above, hba1c% 6.5 and above. In your case adapting a modified life style meaning maintaining normal weight (58.5 kgs) (165 cms - 100 = 65 x 0.9 = 58.5 kgs), avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose cornn syrup containing foods, highly processed foods & high fat milk products. You should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. This will help in prevent progress to diabetes or delay it. Thanks.

I am 74 years old and suffering from diabets since 10 years and it type -2. I am using galvas met 2 tablets a day and one tablet of glycipage 500 mg. As galvas met is costly will you kindly suggest any other alternative tablet to keep my blood sugar level in normal sir? you may also suggest homeopathic /ayurvda medicines also. Now after taking above tablets my blood sugar level in fasting is 130. Please advice.

You can use other medicine like guconorm g2. But you will have to check blood sugar regularly for sometime after starting this medicine to make sure it is lowering down sugar. It is comparatively cheap medicine than galvas met.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all your lipids, creatinine and blood sugar values look absolutely fine, quite normal. But tsh level is high, falls in the category of subclinical hypothyroidism, particularly if t4 values are low. (which have not been mentioned) so there is nothing to worry right now.

Foods to Eat Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, including: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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. 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, but ask your doctor beforehand.

How many times one should have fasting or after meal sugar above normal range to declare one a diabetic patient.
A diabetic patient if not on any medication will almost have high fasting blood sugar levels and the symptoms of diabetes and increased blood sugar levels will confirm diagnosis.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.
