Can a hypothyroidism patient consume water melon? Which fruits should be avoided?
Yes, a hypothyroid patient can consume water melon. My advice to all regarding fruits is to consume seasonal fruit and fruits that is local to your area.

I'm 30 years, female. I have history of hypothyroidism. Lately I have started having pain in my knees, ankles, lower back, neck, groin. I got MRI done, thankfully nothing specific showed up. I'm taking calcium daily. Can you suggest something to change in my diet or some specific tests to be undertaken for any future precaution. I'm married but no kids yet.

Good to know that reports are normal and you are taking calcium supplements. Get an ultrasound abdomen. You will get more information about your gyne and liver and kidneys etc. With thyronorm, the basic metabolic rate increases, means your body is working more even when you are sitting, it's as if you are running and consuming more of your own resources. Take high protein, high calcium diet like toned milk and curds and boiled eggs plus proteins supplements plus seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more water as a routine. If joints hurt you but reports are normal, use less of ýour lower limbs. Remember our ancestors are monkeys who use all the 4 limbs but we humans use only 2 our legs, specially within kitchen also standing for hours without realising the load. No additional pain killers are suggested. Get massage to improve circulation of joints, any good oil will do plus hot fomentation with a heating pad.

Mr Emaan, Appropriate drugs, diet restriction and exercise are the things that help in controlling blood sugar. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Your diet should give exact calories based on ideal body weight (67 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. If you want any specific suggestions please come in a private conversation, where I will be able to do that.

Busted: 6 Myths About Masturbation

Busted: 6 Myths About Masturbation

Masturbation is a natural sexual practice and has given birth to all kinds of myths which stops people from indulging in this form of self-pleasure and here are the top myths about masturbation:

  1. It can cause you to suffer from Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile Dysfunction refers to the inability to maintain or get an erection during intercourse. The causes of this sexual dysfunction are varied, but masturbation doesn't figure in the list of causes. What really happens is that when you masturbate repeatedly, you become used to your own touch or to a certain kind of sensation. As a result, you may find it difficult to have orgasms with your partner.
  2. Reduces sex drive: Masturbation does not reduce your sex drive or prevent you from having orgasms. Many people also claim that women get addicted to vibrators and cannot enjoy sex without them. However, there is no truth behind this.
  3. Children do not masturbate: Masturbation is a normal childhood habit, wherein young children discover the private parts of their bodies and the feelings of pleasure that arise from this activity. Most children begin to play with their private parts by about 5-6 years of age. A child can masturbate once a week or several times a day. There are even researches out there that show male foetuses masturbating in the womb.
  4. It can cause blindness: Blindness is the most outrageous myth associated with self-induced orgasms. Till date, there has not been a medical case to prove it.
  5. People in relationships do not masturbate: Whether you're single or in a relationship, masturbation is a healthy sexual activity that you can engage in to fulfil your sexual desires. Studies show that masturbation is a very common behaviour; about 92% of men and 62% of women masturbate. Sometimes, couples also engage in masturbation together as part of their sexual activity.
  6. It causes infertility: Pleasuring yourself does not reduce your chances of getting pregnant or getting someone else pregnant. However, for men with a low sperm count, restricting ejaculations while trying to get their partner pregnant is a good idea. The only way masturbation can lead to infertility is if partners who share sex toys do not keep them clean and pass on STDs through them.

You can eat everything except meat, milk and paneer. Once the uric acid level comes down after medication, you can start eating these things in moderation. You can take fruits, vegetables, fish.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disease, hence only treatment is to supplement that hormone in a specific suggested dosage. Frequently changing the dose is also not advised. Idaelly TSH should be maintained between 4 to 5 mU/L. There is no Homeopathic treatment for this condition. Thanks.

Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Agra
Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

The human body works as directed by the various hormones released by the endocrine system. These hormones are essential for coordination of various body functions. From the height a person achieves to the metabolic reactions in the body to the reproductive cycle to the stress levels a person can handle, all are hormone controlled.

Pregnancy is another critical, complicated phase that a woman goes through. It is one of the most awaited phases in a woman’s life; however, it is not very simple either. The above-noted hormones play a major role in this pregnancy, as the baby is dependent on the mother for its initial supply of hormones until it can start producing its own hormones. If the baby does not receive the require amounts, there could be various detrimental effects during development and post birth.

Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid is extremely common in women and there are multiple theories about how hypothyroidism can affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. While the correlation between hypothyroidism and pregnancy are quite well researched, a strong connection stating hypothyroid women being not able to be pregnant is yet to be proven.

The following are some correlations between hypothyroidism and pregnancy.

Increased chance of miscarriage: Women with reduced thyroid functions have double the chances of having a miscarriage. Women suffering from thyroid are at a risk of recurrent miscarriages during the first trimester. The chances of miscarriages during the second trimester are also about 40% higher in hypothyroid women. These women are also at a risk of:

  1. Premature labour
  2. Low birth weight
  3. Increased chances of stillbirth
  4. Maternal anemia
  5. Postpartum hemorrhage
  6. Developmental defects and/or delays in the newborn
  7. Placental abruption
  8. High blood pressure

One of the reasons identified for infertility in women is hypothyroidism. This range varies from 1% to 40% and so remains to be proven still. In addition, the hypothyroid mother will have a set of symptoms to live through, which may be further complicated given the pregnancy. Thyroid replacement should be religiously done and monitored to ensure TSH levels are at the optimal required levels (2.5 to 3 mIU/L) during the entire duration of pregnancy.

If you have the following, be sure to go through a comprehensive thyroid screening before and during pregnancy.

  1. Family history of thyroid
  2. History of thyroid dysfunction or goitre or thyroid antibodies
  3. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of hypothyroidism
  4. History of repeated miscarriages
  5. History of head and neck radiation
  6. Family/personal history of autoimmune disorders

While it still remains to be proven that hypothyroidism per se can stop a woman from being pregnant, there are definitely effects of hypothyroidism on the developing child and the mother. A comprehensive screening and close monitoring through pregnancy are extremely essential. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hello Doctor, my father is suffering from diabetes. Day before yesterday he made a test for which results are Fasting -347 & PP- 589. Doctor recommended Gemer Ds2. But by taking that particular medicine, suddenly the sugar level dropped down to 238 & my father was feeling very uneasy. Today again he made a fasting test for which results are 243. Doctor has now recommended Metsmall 500. But again my father is feeling uneasy. I wanna know is there any solution to this? Should we change the doctor? Waiting for your valuable feedback. Thank you

Hello there, Thank you for your question. The blood sugars your father is currently having are very high. The best remedy for him would be to start insulin. Although his sugars are not low they have come down from the beginning levels of 500 and so your father is feeling uneasy. Having a fasting of 243 warrants insulin to be started. Request your doctor to start insulin, I am sure your doctor will guide you for the same. Also give him enough water and keep him well hydrated in the meanwhile. Thanks and Regards Dr Shreya Kunder

You might be suffering from overt hypothyroidism which requires thyroxine suppliment. Get your Free T3 Free T4 and anti TPO antibodies test and consult any diabetologist or endocrinologist for starting Levothyroxine dose. TSH takes around 6 to 8 weeks to reflect its change after starting thyroxine suppliment.

Thanks for the query. When on treatment for hypothyroidism, ideally TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Even efforts to reduce weight will succeed if TSH is in the above range. So please check that first. Then look at your dietary intake. Total caloric intake should be based on your ideal body weight (Height in Cms - 100 = kgs). Plus since weight reduction is desired, then reduce another 500 calories from that. Plus continue doing all the workouts as of now. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Long standing diabetes even when it is fairly well controlled does affect kidney, causing diabetic nephropathy. This happens mainly due affection of filtration membrane in the nephrons. High creatinine, increased urea concentration and swelling of feet and legs plus increased protein excretion in urine are the signs. In such a situation following things are required: strict bloo glucose control (Fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7), protein restriction, well controlled BP are primary requirements. In such a situation dialysis is one very necessary measure. Plus that may have to be continued for quite some time. Thanks.
