I am 36 years male. I have hypothyroid from 10 years. I am using thyrox 150 mcg daily. I am feeling energy less feeling. I am taking amway protein supplement. I read your article about what not to eat who are having thyroid problem. In that you have mentioned do not eat soy bean n its related products. Amway protein made up extracted protein from soy bean. So pls suggest me whether I can take amway protein or not. And pls suggest can I take any supplements to control thyroid. Thanks in advance.

No you cannot take any soya product as it has nutrient blockers which will make your hypothyroidism worse.Please stop any source of soya protein. Hi  First : medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain,muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as reproductive  and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio ,weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly.Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms.No soya ,nugget,chunk,tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres .Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried)and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food,chips,pickles,sauces as they contain  large amount of sodium .Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess.And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol.It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines,diet and exercise.  You will start  better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation :5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care Dr.Amrita Basu

I am an old man of 69 years. I have high B.P for 20 years but am keeping it under control, using right medicines as advised by the doctor. I also have been diabetic for 6 years and keeping it well with in limits. I have a great urge for sex right from my adolescence and I used to have excellent sexual potency that very few can have. But, unfortunately due to having been divorced, I haven't had sex with any woman for nearly 11 years. Though I burn with a great desire to have sex, I am afraid, I may not be so active as I was earlier due to my fear that my penis is flaccid and that there is no proper erection, when the desire for sex rises in me (I get tempted, even looking at any young and sexy woman, at this age too). I would like to know if there are any medicines or surgeries that can make my penis strong and stiff when aroused and whether I can get back my original potency at this age. Can I also have the sustaining power of retaining the erection for long ,as I used to have earlier? The bottom line is that I am going to marry an orphan, younger to me by 35 years. I don't want to be a failure and have my new wife find ways to betray me due to lack of sexual satisfaction from me. Please advise me.

Mr Ramachnadran, When one has diabetes it is always good to avoid taking direct sugar containing foods. The reason is there is a rapid increase in blood glucose after taking those foods. Even if you have blood glucose in "control", it is not good to indulge in such foods. Since there is no mention about what are the fasting & Pp glucose levels, it is difficult to comment. Because in control means fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<7. Thanks

Lybrate-user, blood glucose level of 200 mg, if it is fasting then it is very high. But if it is after food then moderately high. I am sure she must be on some treatment for diabetes. In this communication we are supposed to give positive suggestions only and general guidelines like diet control, exercise and weight reduction etc. If you are looking for specific prescription then please come in a private conversation with following details: fasting, pp blood glucose levels, hba1c%, present treatment details with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done daily. Based on those details I will be able to guide about proper treatment. Thanks.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology
Nephrologist, Delhi
Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

What is Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease) is defined as the progressive damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes. It is characterised by the scarring of the glomeruli in the kidneys due to prolonged diabetes mellitus.

What Causes Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetes is a condition characterized by high concentration of blood sugar. Although the cause of Diabetes Nephropathy is not yet well defined, it is likely that the high sugar levels in the blood damage the blood vessels present in the kidneys that help to filter waste products, thus resulting in decreased kidney function and ultimately, kidney failure.

Not everyone with diabetes suffers from diabetic nephropathy. Although, factors that can increase your chances of getting diabetic neuropathy are-

  1. Smoking

  2. Poor control of blood glucose

  3. High blood pressure

  4. History of kidney diseases

What are the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may notice swelling in the extremities like your feet. Thus it is recommended to get your blood albumin levels tested on a regular basis. If it is diagnosed in early stages, the damage can be reversed. Other symptoms that can indicate damage to the kidneys are-

  1. Severe malaise

  2. Headaches

  3. Nausea

  4. Lack of appetite

  5. Frequent voiding

  6. Itchiness of skin

  7. General feeling of illness

Diagnostic tests that can confirm diabetic nephropathy are-

Routine urine test (urinalysis) - Kidney diseases are detected by the presence of a protein in the urine called albumin and this condition is called albuminuria. Other parameters that must be regularly monitored are-

  1. Blood pressure

  2. Cholesterol levels in your blood

How can you treat/ manage diabetic nephropathy?

If this type of nephropathy is diagnosed in the early stages, the damage to the kidneys can be reversible. The key to managing diabetic nephropathy are-

  1. Diet: Reduce the dietary intake of salt, phosphorous and potassium in the advanced stages.

  2. Glycemic Control: Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly

  3. Management of Hypertension: It is important to manage your blood pressure as it can have a direct effect on the coronary blood vessels which in turn pump blood to the various blood vessels of the body

  4. Renal Replacement Therapy: In chronically ill patients, renal replacement therapy is the best option. This can include haemodialysis (a procedure to flush out toxins from the blood, such as urea), peritoneal dialysis or ultimately renal transplantation.

Sir/mam am 41 year old female am suffering from thyroid and palpitation before sleeping .Can I get a solution?

I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

Kindly advice.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism treatment that is the right tablet. However, the dose being taken is not adequate. Because when on treatment for complete control of all symptoms of hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. With a level of 9.96 mU/L, most of the problematic symptoms will continue to be there. Thanks.

She is a diabetic patient. Sometimes she feel very fatigue. Please give me a suggestion.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
She is a diabetic patient. Sometimes she feel very fatigue. Please give me a suggestion.
Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. 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.

Invokana is very new drug in india, its safety in clinical studies is good, however, we are yet to use it regularly. It has definite advantages some of the existing treatments. Taking insulin injections is in fact really good for you as it can bring sugar levels rapidly under control.
