Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin and unexplained weight gain. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

You are basically on almost maximum allowed tablets, even then ur sugars are still on the higher side.Hope u had taken the tablet and done the tests on the day of the tests. Two option, go for one small dose of night time insulin(lantus) or add tablet onglyza 5mg in the morning. Do a hba1c and revert back.

Hi Type 2 Diabetes CANNOT be cured. Type 1 diabetes can be cured with pancreas transplant. However one needs to carefully weigh the potential benefits and risks involved.

She actually needs high protein diet but increasing the amount of protein will also increase her uric acid level. So, she should take high biological value protein like milk and milk products, egg white, baked fish, these won't increase the uric acid level when taken in appropriate amount. For diabetes, she should take high fibre, low carbohydrate, moderate fat diet and her diet should be small and frequent.

My tsh level is 9.6. What should I do to reduce it?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
9.6 (units not mentioned) is a high level. Normal range is 0.4 to 4.12 mili units/l, your level is very high meaning there is the problem of hypothyroidism, which can be corrected by taking thyronorm (thyroxine) tablets daily for life time. This is the only treatment.
