hyperthyroidism is a condition which can only be controlled by taking drugs as you are doing, or thyroidectomy (removal of thyroid) may have to be undertaken. Or by using radio active iodine the gland's activity is curtailed. Once that is done you will have to take thyroxine tablets to replace the hormone. There are no medications to curtail the glandular activity than methods mentioned above.

Your Sugar is in Control which is a good thing. You can speak to your doctor and reduce your Diabetes medicine gradually. If every test is normal, then you should not worry too much. Try to improve your diet. You can take more proteins and nuts - Almonds/Walnuts etc. And legumes in your diet. Please recheck your Thyroid levels.

lybrate-user, If your height is 165 cms, then 62 kgs weight is not high. I do not see any increase in it. Anyway, if you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, for achieving good control. If that is not done, then all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are likely to be back, or may not go away. So please check TSH levels and make sure those are maintained as mentioned above. Then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. Thanks.

I am a known diabetic for the past20 years the recent result of hba1 is more than 9 I have burning foot and can' t walk without amcr chappal joe to get permanent relief?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Your hba1c levels should ideally be less than 7 but since you have diabetes for 20 yrs even bringing it down to 8 would also be of help. You should be started on sulfonylureas like glimepiride. Diabetic neuropathy is difficult to treat if pregabalin is not effective then you may ask your physician to swith to either gabpentin or amytritiline. But do remember that it may take more than 4 to 6 weeks to start showing its effect.

Thyroid is a butterfly shaped organ which is located in the neck region and produces thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones have far implicating effects on our body and regulate our bmr ie basal metabolic rate. It is simply stated as the energy required to carry on the basal or basic functioning of the body. For eg our body requires energy for digestion and for digestion our intestines have to undergo peristalsis which is the movement of intestines to absorb nutrients from intestines. This energy is regulated by thyroid. So an important symptom of thyriod dysfuction is related to this basal function. If your thyroid underperforms ie hypo thyroidism then you are constipated but if it overperforms ie hyper thyroid then you get frequent loose stools. This explains the effect on only one aspect of body functions but thyroid has multiple effects in multitude of ways on our body. The trick is to just keep it right. Neither hyper nor hypo. Your reports points you are hypothyroid. But you need another test called anti tpo to confirm this. Your hair fall is linked to hypothyroidism. Hope this helps.

What complications are associated with diabetes?

PGDMCH, MBA( CHA) , MBBS

What complications are associated with diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious disorder which happens when your body has an unreasonably high level of blood sugar, which further leads to harmful effects. Diabetes has a wide variety of complications associated with it, and they start to build up slowly and gradually. Some of the common complications are:

  • Retinopathy - In simple words, diabetes leads to eye damage by making the eye exposed and prone to severe eye disorders like cataracts and glaucoma. If you have retinopathy, then you may also have face the consequence loss of vision or permanent blindness.
  • Skin conditions - During diabetes, your skin health is bound to degrade to a large extent. Your skin will become thin in texture and more prone to cuts and breakages due to internal skin cell damage. Thus, the skin gets more exposed to the bacterial and viral infections and its healing process also slows down as the cell division takes longer than usual.
  • Nephropathy - Nephropathy refers to kidney damage which is caused due to diabetes. The kidneys act as a filter system to the body and they filter out waste materials from the blood. Diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels of the kidneys which may further result in serious kidney disorders and may increase the risks of a sudden kidney failure.
  • Cardiovascular diseases - This means that if you are having excessive diabetes, then you are at a risk of having a major heart attack or a heart stroke. Additionally, increased blood sugar levels also lead to other heart-related diseases like chest pain, narrowing of arteries etc.
  • Neuropathy - It is a complication related to the nervous system of your body. The complication generally occurs in the legs as there is a numbness, burning or tingling sensation in the legs. This happens due to the extra sugar in the body, which damages the walls of the blood vessels. In the worst case scenario, you can lose sensation in the legs.

However, it is always desirable that you go and visit a doctor if the conditions persist for a longer time. Additionally, you can also depend upon some domestic care measures to bring your blood sugar levels under control.
