What is the normal level of thyroid and will we have any symptoms of we have thyroid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sarvanan, When thyroid functions are normal usually TSH levels are looked at, these should be between 0.5 to 6 milli units ml Serum thyroxine (T4 4.6 to 12 ng/dl), serum T3 80 to 180 ng/dl. If TSH goes up then it is diagnosed as hypothyroidism. Weight gain, swelling of face, lower limb, slow heart rate, irregular periods, intolerance to cold, dry skin and hair, hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety and depression. If not trreated then it can lead to more serious problems including myxedema.

My mother is 35 and having sugar. What she must do to be in control and have a healthy life. Some times she sleeps more. Is thus because of sugar? Please give any suggestions.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My mother is 35 and having sugar. What she must do to be in control and have a healthy life. Some times she sleeps mo...
Excess sleep can be from sugar not controlled well. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

Dates are good, have a lot of benefits, but a person with diabetes should use just a few like 2 to 3 a day that too with excellent glucose control. Thanks.

I am diabetic. For past 10 years I am 42 yrs. What preventive medicine should I take to avoid any weaknesses.
Dear lybrate-user, If you are diabetic since long time, your weaknesses are the target organs of diabetes. They are retina, heart, nerves, kidneys and blood vessels. Following are the precautions: 1. Do a regular check-up of these target organs regularly. An annual retinoscopy from an eye specialist for eyes is a must. 2. ECG, ECHO, TMT etc for heart. Very good tests have come up for assessing heart health. Do them once a year. You can find out them on internet. 3. Kidney function test for kidney. Keep track of Glomerular Filtration rate, creatinine clearance, albumin in urine, etc. 4. Take B 12 etc for nerve protection. Please always wear shoes to protect your feet. Never leave your feet unprotected. 5. Exercise, exercise, exercise. 6. Keep your HbA1C between 5-6. 7. Yog, pranayaam, meditation, help to break the adrenalin rush. You can try Sufi music and sufi whirling for meditation. All the best.

Mr Rakesh, Thanks for the query. Cycling is a good exercise. But should be carried out for a substantial amount of time like an hour or so. Whether one measures kilo meters or minutes does not matter. It is a good exercise for everyone including diabetic person. Thanks

I am becoming fat now-a-days .I had fasting blood sugar level of 135 mg/dl today morning. I was diagnosed to be pre-diabetic. Doctor told me to take istamet tablet daily once after breakfast, if not I would become diabetic in 3 years. He told that 70% of people who had this drug were relieved from diabetes. Is it true. Should I continue with this drug? What is your opinion?

Dear lybrate-user, considering your height and weight your bmi looks ok. A fbs (fasting blood sugar) 135 mg% is not prediabetic. It falls in category of diabetes. Never rely only on fbs. Please check plbs (post lunchbs) and three months average hba1c at the onset of treatment. Istamet can't prevent or reverse diabetes.

Being 40 your backache and neckache may need not to be due to your high uric acid only. That may be because of other reasons too. Treat your hyper uric acid level by an ortho. Doc's and a dietician's advice. Meanwhile, sleep on a hard bed with thin mattress, use commode, local heat with a pain gel after fomentation, pain killers for 5 days and rest for 3-5 days if your problem is bothering your routine life.

I am 42 years old and had fasting glucose level of 5.15 mmol/l. The last gtt showed that after two hours of taking food the glucose level is still high. My family had hereditary diabetic signs. I would like to ask you, if I am prone to diabetics at any stage. I weight 68 kgs with height 5.2.

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
In your case, your fasting levels are below 6.1 mmol/l (110mg%). Only your pp levels are increased. You have not mentioned the exact value. Diabetes to be diagnosed only if you have some clinical symptoms of diabetes (like incresed thirst, increased urination etc), along with fasting glucose values more than 126 mg%, pp values more than 200 mg%, and/or hbaic test > 6.5%. So, based on the above criteria you currently do not have diabetes. However, since you have a strong family history of diabetes, it is likely, that you may develop diabetes later on. You need to get your tested at regular intervals and be observant for any clinical symptoms also.
