Hello, For achieving good control in hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained between 3 to4 mU/L, otherwise most symptoms reappear. So it is necessary for him to increase the dosage. Thanks.

Only medicines will not help to control it, you should make some changes in your lifestyle like eating meals on time, exercising regularly and eating less refined carbohydrate like maida, pasta, bread, noodles, white rice. Have food rich in fibre like whole grains (wheat, brown rice) nuts, fruits and vegetables (avoid potato, sweet potato, arbi, beetroot) etc.

Things To Know About Hyperthyroidism

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Things To Know About Hyperthyroidism

The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland which is present in the neck and is formed of two interconnected lobes. The gland is located at the frontal portion of the neck and is responsible for secretion of thyroid hormones which affect metabolism, synthesis of protein and the overall development of a person. The thyroid is also responsible for the secretion of calcitonin which is responsible for calcium homeostasis (regulation of calcium levels).

The problems in the gland can range from goitre (enlargement of the thyroid gland) to cancerous growth in the gland.

Here are a few factors which cause Hyperthyroidism (over-production of thyroid hormones):

  1. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: This particular inflammatory disease is considered to be the biggest cause of hyperthyroidism. It can be genetic or caused due to certain types of bacteria and viruses.

  2. Radiation Therapies: The radiation therapies performed in and around the neck can affect the production of the thyroid hormone.

  3. Medications: Certain medicines contain lithium which can affect the thyroid gland and lead to this condition.

  4. Postpartum Hypothyroidism: Some women contract this condition post-pregnancy as their bodies start producing antibodies which go against the gland itself. This puts the foetus at risk.

  5. Pituitary Disorders: The pituitary gland might fail to produce enough thyroid-stimulating hormone which can result in the development of benign tumour, which can be a cause for hyperthyroidism.

Listed below are a few symptoms of hyperthyroidism:

  1. Sudden weight gain

  2. Increased blood cholesterol level

  3. Irregular menstruation

  4. Impaired memory

  5. Dry skin and puffiness in the face

  6. Slower heart rate

  7. Muscle aches

  8. Extreme fatigue

Listed below are a few treatments for people suffering from the malfunctioning of the thyroid gland:

  1. Conventional medication: Thyroid problems can usually be treated by using conventional medicines which aim at cleansing the system and restoring immune function. Certain medicines also balance the release of thyroid hormones.

  2. Increased intake of glutathione: Glutathione is a strong antioxidant which can fight Hashimoto’s condition as it boosts the immune system and helps in getting rid of inflammations. Certain food items help your body in producing glutathione. Foods such as peaches, avocados, broccoli and cabbage can help in replenishing the depleted glutathione levels in your body.

If a 28 guy has sugar, can he control it? What are the precautions he should take?
Mr. Lybrate-user, any age person can control raised blood sugar, or diabetes provided he/she takes appropriate medicine, observes dietary control and does regular physical exercise. Precautions in general include taking prescribed drugs regularly, avoiding sweets, sugar and gur, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, high fat milk products, sweetened aerated drinks and highly processed foods. Consumes a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Avoids alcohol and smoking. Does regular physical exercise of at least 1 hour a day. In other words follows a modified lifestyle. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, Ideal range of normal blood glucose is between 80-140. Your fasting should be between 70-100 and PP should be taken after 2 hours of meal and should be less than 140. All the parameters slightly above the normal range are consider to be pre diabetic and if they are more than it, it considered to be diabetic. Thank You.

My thyroid increased to 13. I however take THYRONORM 175 regularly. Please suggest.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Krutujaji, Thanks for the query. If on treatment then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free fro all the symptoms of hypothyroidism.Since your TSH is 13 mU/L, it shows that hypothyroidism is not controlled at all. This means thyroxine dosage has to increase from the present one. Then after tstarting the increased dose, TSH should be checked after 6 weeks to see if there is necessary change. Thanks

Hair fall is mainly due to hormonal and genetic reasons. There are no homeremedies that vil help or quick responses for it. It can definitely be controlled. It's important to eat plenty of pulses, fish, meat and milk. Drink at least two litres water everyday. Exercise regularly. Don't stress out because you don't have long hair or because your hair's falling. Avoid all forms of chemicals, hot devices and blowdryers to prevent hair damage. Massage scalp and wash twice or thrice a week. Don't overshampoo, it'll spoil hair. Don't tie up wet hair and sleep, it'll get infected. If any infections, g et it treated. A thorough blood check up is needed to eliminate autoimmune, hormonal and nutritional diseases. Apart from this, treatment may be needed in resistant cases.

What should be threshold level of sugar in blood for the age group above 50 years ( Fating and PP) What is HbA1C1 test. What it indicates

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
There is no age wise specific reference range for glucose. WHO protocols says fasting sugar levels below 110 are normal, between 110-125 - impaired glucose tolerance, and > 126 - diabetes. Similarly for PP samples , < 140 is normal, 140-200 is impaired , > 200 is - diabetes . These tests must be repeated at least once, PLUS you must also have some clinical symptoms of diabetes. HBAic test indicates your average blood sugar levels for preceding three months.It is basically to assess whether your sugar levels were controlled during the preceding 3 months or not. Again, a Hbaic > 6.5 % is highly suggestive of diabetes.

Hi, an under-functioning thyroid is a hormonal disruption that could be fixed via good eating habits and an active lifestyle. At our clinic we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification. This would be a great platform for you to be on as well.

Get your fasting and post prandial blood sugar levels done. If they are within the acceptable range, you dont need to worry about the disease. If they are high, consult a physician near you for complete evaluatuion of your symptoms.

He need to become aware of the importance of getting the sugar under control. Just by following simple health tips he can become better. Tell him to plan his day in advance so that he can implement healthy rules in a study manner. Diet, exercise, sleep and mental relaxation are very important for everyone including diabetes patients. He should eat only healthy food and avoid all junk and processed food. Avoid all bad habits. He can have a small meal every 3 hrs. Drink enough water 8-10 glasses of water. Have lots of salads and vegetables as they contain good nutrients but less calories. Yoga can be very beneficial as it is very safe and can be learnt at any age. If needed you can add Homeopathy to his current medications after a detailed case history. You can contact me for a private consultation and Homeopathic treatment.
