I am 40 years old female and i'm suffering from thyroid problems causes, diagnosis and treatment disease.

Hello your statement is not very clear. But I think you want to know what happens in hypothyroidism. This condition is now a days seen more often in ladies. Patient feels weak and tired, weight may increase plus there may be swelling of legs and feet. It occurs because of lack of thyroid hormones like t3 and thyroxine. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets regularly.

Since last 1 month I feel weakness , swelling in my hands and legs , and I also gain weight without any reason and pain in body. Then I go for thyroid test and in that test my T3 and T4 is normal but TSH is more than maximum limit mentioned in lab testing report by Thyrocare lab i.e. 6.91. Please suggest me treatment.

Lybrate-user, tsh level of 6.91 mu/l is high, but falls in the sub- clinical hypothyroidism category, for which no treatment is advised. Only when tsh level crosses 10 u/l treatment is advocated. Some times even at less than 10 mu/l treatment is given if certain symptoms dominate or trouble the patient and t4 levels are low. Looking at your height and weight it is clear that you have grade 2 obesity. It is possible that you have been over weight even before, and now there is further increase. Please take a restricted diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight (52.5 kgs x 20 = 1050 calories a day). Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day and aim at reducing 5 to 8 % of current weight. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according to your information he is on 100 mcg of thyroxine and now the tsh value is 129.4 is that correct? what are the symptoms he has related to hypothyroidism? because with such high tsh he may be having a lot discomfort. If the results (values) are correct, then there has to be a substantial increase in the dose.

Hi i Am a diabetic since 2002 and have been able to control so far. Consulted many doctors and changed many a medicines. Last couple of days feeling too sleepy n exhausted. Havent checked and monitored my diabetic count fasting n p. Need a good doctor to work out my diet plan n medicine. Can you suggest? Thanks.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugar cane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. Diabetes is a condition in which due to insulin insufficiency the carbs are not metabolised and hence your cells are starving. This could lead to lack of energy and hence drowsiness too. Unconsciously there are chances that you might be restricting your intake and thus nutrients leading to deficiency. It's all a matter of discipline.

I am 20 year old girl and recently I am diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and because of this I hv some issues in my genitalia as well. So pls suggest some ayurvedic remedy as I do not want any allopathy to further ruin my body. I will b very grateful to you. thanks.

Lybrate-user, hyperthyroidism is a condition where your thyroid gland is hyper active. That activity needs to be curtailed by anti thyroid drugs, radio active iodine or surgery. Unfortunately no other systems of medicine has any drugs or cure for this condition. Basically it is a condition that needs life long therapy. First by anti thyroid drugs and later with thyroxine hormone. You may definitely try ayurvedic methods, but I am afraid those will not be helpful. Thanks.

MY glycolate blood sugar is 7.8, what does that actually mean, is it that the sugar is not under control?

Provided the test is done from a reliable lab, it means that your blood sugar is not under control. Your average blood sugar over the past 3 months has been around 170 mg/dl. The target should be less than 7 percent. Ensure that you take your medicines on time and follow your diet and exercise a bit more sincerely.

I just wanted can thyroid be cured completely, by any line of treatment like allopathic, homeopathic, ayurvedic or any other.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Its not cure completely and its comes with normal when medicines r continue. Some home remedies the thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the center of the neck, which makes thyroid hormones. Although relatively small, it is considered the master gland of metabolism and plays a key role in the functioning of many important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin. For your body? s overall health, it is essential for the thyroid gland to stay healthy and function properly. Thyroid problems are common and include hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goiters, thyroid nodules, thyroiditis and thyroid cancer. Of these, hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) are the most common and can cause many hormonal, emotional and physical changes in the body ginger is a good source of zinc, magnesium and potassium, and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help improve thyroid functioning? fresh ginger root slices can be added to soups and other dishes? another option is to drink a two or three cups of hot ginger tea. To make this herbal tea, add some fresh ginger slices to a cup of boiling water. Steep for five minutes, and then add some honey to it. Any queries inform me.

Mr. Lybrate-user, body pain can be due to many reasons like over strin, having indulged in sudden exercise or a game cricket or any other after a very long gap, doing excess house hold work or simply due to fever. Dolo 650 is paracetamol 650 mg, mainly fever reducing drug with mild analgesic effect. So just taking that may not relieve the pain completely. Some times viral fevers also cause fairly severe body ache. It may just recover completely in next day or two. Thanks for the question.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day for uric acid.
