My TSH level are found to be 13.39.i am 30 year old male. Is it secondary level thyroid. Will I have to be on medication for complete life? No way I can get rid of it? Can the report be faulty? Is it life threatening?

TSH 13.39 is definitely high and suggestive of hypothyroidism means your thyroid gland is not making thyroid hormone as per your bodi's requirement, which is required for proper metabolism. Hence you have to take it in the form of medicine. If you are suspecious of report you can get it repeat and if still high consult a physician. It is not life threatening if take thyroid medicine as per requirement which is judge by regular estimation of TSH.

I am Type II patient for last 20+ years. I used to have actrapid which I have stopped and taking Diamicron 60 XR One Tab a day before lunch. I take Janumet 50/1000 twice a day. And Lantus 24 units before going to bed. The sugar checking is done every day (fasting as well as PP). The readings for the last one year ranges between 80 & 108 fasting.

In ayurveda its called kashtsaadhya. You have to continue taking medicine to manage levels of sugar. The only difference between ayurvedic herbs and allopathic is that with former you will not get any side effects like neuropathy, retinopathy etc and if acquired already, it will start receding in 6-8 weeks. But you can't stop allopathy atonce. May gradually increase herbals and reduce allopathic. Initially parallels will have to be taken. Constant monitoring will educate you at what level balance of ayurveda or allopathy is to be kept. You will be the best judge. Parallel treatment with ayurveda will not harm you. No interaction ever. May be if it suits you, you may continue only herbals rest of your life with betterment. But it is easier said than done. Do patiently and adopt pranayam too.

Tight glycemic control comes at a risk of hypoglycemia. Regular and timely meals along wid insulin reduces d risk of hypoglycemia. You should monitor your sugar and visit your doctor regularly for fine adjustment of insulin doses.

Periods are not regular. Periods usually varies between 28 to 35 days if periods are coming after more than 35 days then you should go for private consultation from me where I will tell you medicines with no side effects. For your mother, get t3, t4 and tsh levels done. Only after that we can start treatment.

General Physician,
Hypothyroidism

Introduction
Hypothyroidism happens when your thyroid gland, located at the front of your neck, doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone (underactive thyroid). There are several types of hypothyroidism. The most common is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland. The disease affects both sexes and all ages, but is most common in women over age 60. Because the thyroid gland helps regulate your metabolism, low thyroid levels cause your body to slow down and can affect everything from appetite to body temperature. Symptoms can appear over time and can be hard to diagnose. Left untreated, hypothyroidism can cause serious health complications.

Signs and Symptoms

Slow pulse
Fatigue
Hoarse voice, slowed speech
Goiter (caused by swollen thyroid gland)
Sensitivity to cold
Weight gain
Constipation
Dry, scaly, thick, coarse hair
Numbness in fingers or hands
Confusion, depression, dementia
Headaches
Menstrual problems
In children, slowed growth, delayed teething, and slow mental development
What Causes It?

There are different kinds of hypothyroidism with different causes. In Hashimoto's thyroiditis, antibodies in the blood mistakenly attack the thyroid gland and start to destroy it. Post-therapeutic hypothyroidism occurs when treatment for hyperthyroidism leaves the thyroid unable to produce enough thyroid hormone. And hypothyroidism with goiter happens when you don?t get enough iodine in your diet. In the developed world iodine is added to salt so goiter is rare, although it still happens in undeveloped countries.

Your thyroid gland produces two main thyroid hormones, T3 and T4. In addition, the pituitary gland produces thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which helps control how much T3 and T4 the thyroid makes. Your health care provider will draw blood to measure levels TSH. When levels of thyroid hormones are low, your body produces more TSH to increase production of thyroid hormones. Your doctor may also test for levels of T3 or T4.
Natural medicine practitioners may pay particular attention to levels of T3 hormone. T3 is the active form of thyroid hormone. Your thyroid gland makes some T3, but the body also converts T4 into T3. If you are unable to convert T4 to T3, your laboratory tests for T4 may be normal, but you still may have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Talk to your doctor about including T3 laboratory tests in the treatment of your hypothyroidism.

Treatment Options

Drug Therapies
Your health care provider will prescribe a synthetic thyroid hormone called levothyroxine (Levothroid, Synthroid, Unithroid) that you will take daily. A natural dessicated thyroid hormone drug, made from the thyroid glands of pigs, is also available by prescription. Your doctor will want to adjust your dose over a period of several weeks, after regular blood tests to check the amount of thyroid hormone in your blood.

Complementary and Alternative Therapies

If you have hypothyroidism, you need conventional medical treatment. Nutrition and herbs can help support conventional treatment, but should not be used by themselves to treat hypothyroidism.
Nutrition and Supplements
Following these nutritional tips may help reduce symptoms:
Eat foods high in B-vitamins and iron, such as whole grains (if no allergy), fresh vegetables, and sea vegetables.
Avoid foods that interfere with thyroid function, including broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, spinach, turnips, soybeans, peanuts, linseed, pine nuts, millet, cassava, and mustard greens.
If you take thyroid hormone medication, talk to your doctor before eating soy products. There is some evidence soy may interfere with the absorption of thyroid hormone.
Taking iron supplements may interfere with the absorption of thyroid hormone medication, so ask your doctor before taking iron.
Eat foods high in antioxidants, including fruits (such as blueberries, cherries, and tomatoes) and vegetables (such as squash and bell pepper).
Avoid alcohol and tobacco. Talk to your doctor before increasing your caffeine intake, as caffeine impacts several conditions and medications.
These supplements may also help:
Omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish oil, to help decrease inflammation and help with immunity. Omega-3 fatty acids may increase the risk of bleeding, especially if you already take blood-thinning medication. Ask your doctor before taking omega-3 fatty acids if you take blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin) or if you have a bleeding disorder.
L-tyrosine, 500 mg two to three times daily. The thyroid gland combines tyrosine and iodine to make thyroid hormone. If you are taking prescription thyroid hormone medication, you should never take L-tyrosine without direction from your doctor. Do not take L-tyrosine if you have high blood pressure or have symptoms of mania.
Do not take an iodine supplement unless your doctor tells you to. Iodine is only effective when hypothyroidism is caused by iodine deficiency, which is rare in the developed world. And too much iodine can actually cause hypothyroidism.

Herbs ( though not scientifically proven or dependable for hypothyroidism )

Herbs are a way to strengthen and tone the body's systems. As with any therapy, you should work with your health care provider to get your problem diagnosed before starting any treatment. You may use herbs may as dried extracts (capsules, powders, teas), glycerites (glycerine extracts), or tinctures (alcohol extracts). People with a history of alcoholism should not take tinctures. Unless otherwise indicated, make teas with 1 tsp. Herb per cup of hot water. Steep covered 5 - 10 minutes for leaf or flowers, and 10 - 20 minutes for roots. Drink 2 - 4 cups per day. You may use tinctures singly or in combination as noted.
Few herbs have been studied for treating hypothyroidism. More research is needed.
Coleus (Coleus forskohlii), for low thyroid function. Coleus may interfere with certain medications, including some blood pressure medicines, nitrogylcern, and blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin (Coumadin). Talk to your doctor.
Guggul (Commiphora mukul), for low thyroid support. Guggul may interfere with estrogen, birth control pills, and other medications. Talk with your doctor.
Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus), for low thyroid support. Do not take bladderwrack unless directed by your doctor. Bladderwrack contains iodine. Although lack of iodine can cause hypothyroidism, most cases of hypothyroidism in the developed world are not caused by iodine deficiency. In fact, too much iodine can actually cause hypothyroidism. Bladderwrack may also contain toxic heavy metals.

Following Up
After you start on thyroid hormone replacement therapy, your provider will want you to have frequent checkups to monitor its effectiveness.

Please understand diabetes occurs because of lack of insulin. Oral anti diabetic drugs promote either insulin secretion or reduce resistance to it's action. Plus insulin injection is required if there's severe lack of it. No other treatment is there. So you have to take medications.

My husband is 44 years old he is diabetic patient and on rt foot 4th toe wet gangrene what should I do.
Hello The wet gangrene has to be debrided and regular dressing done. This will fasten the healing process. Plus it has to be ensured that the blood glucose is well controlled. Wound culture has to be done and antibiotics given to treat any associated infection. Hence you need to meet a surgeon and an endocrinologist. Most likely he is having an underlying neuropathy and/or peripheral artery disease which lead to this ulcer. He cannot walk bare footed. He needs to be in bed rest to promote healing. No pressure can be put while standing on the effected area. All this should be done on an emergent basis to salvage the foot.

Hello, to become healthier one needs to take a balanced diet, that provides all three major energy giving nutrients in proper proportion like carbohydrates 55 to 60 %, protein 15%, fats 25 to 30 %. To control diabetes, it is essential to take appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs, diet control and regular exercise foe at least 1 hour. Cold drinks or colas contain a lot of sugar they provide high amount of calories and no nutrition. Excess intake can lead to over weight. Similarly junk foods and pastries and other bakery items also are not to be taken by a patient of diabetes. Thanks.

Hi I am 52 years.(male) diabetic patient. Suffering last twenty years. As per blood report doctor advised me to take glimepiride 1 mg before breakfast and metformin 500 after meal two times. After 3 months b. S (f) abnormalyy high (304) and during that time I was suffering from gastric (i think side affect) now medicine totally stop. Doctor advise me to take admission in any hospital. Feeling very weak. What can be done now.

Fellowship in Diabetes Management, MBBS
General Physician,
After 20 yrs of diabetes, your body's own insulin production is very less, and thats why medicines won't help much. Starting once daily basal insulin will improve your condition a lot with weakness going away. Don't be afraid to start insulin, because the injection is painless, and can guarantee you that your condition will improve a lot. No need of admission, consult me online with your reports if necessary.

I think it is because of stress in your mind or stressful life. Try to meditate and talk out to a concerned person if you are facing any problem. If you have not menopause do yet, or did recently, that can be the reason for this. Do not take it seriously if your health is normal.

I am taking Thyroxine sodium 100 mcg 1 tablet daily for thyroid, no tested again Which results: Total triiodothyronine T3: 1.17 Total thyroxine :10.50 Thyroid Stimulating hormones: 6.57 (0.35-5.50) So my question is :should I continue the same dose or increase or decrease my dose, please reply.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please let me know the age of the patient plus are there any symptoms present related to hypothyroidism? Unless those details are known, it is difficult to say whether dose needs to be increased. Usually when on treatment TSh should be maintained around 3 to4 mU/L, particularly in adults. In older people a slightly higher level of TSH does not really matter. In fact it offers certain protection. So please answer my questions. Thanks.
