Hello Tanisha. Taking jaggery and chana is not a solution. Neither allopathic treatment will help much. My suggestion is to take proper homoeopathic treatment. You can consult me at lybrate. Till then take Iodium 30

Hello doctors m suffering from hyperthyroidism from last 1.5 years in my recent test t3- 154.42 ng/dl+normal) t4- 10microgram/dl (normal) tsh- 0.008microlu/aml (low) from different books I get to know about tsh is from pituitary not from thyroid gland. But m taking medicine for thyroid. Which I think only works on t3/4 not on tsh so what treatment need to solve tsh problem? I.e from pituitary gland's problem.

Tsh takes a longer time to come within normal range so not to worry. It will gradually come within normal range. But adopt a good regular lifestyle. Eat home cooked meals at regular time. Avoid junk food and take proper 8 hours of sleep which is very important for thyroid disorders. Hope this helps.

I am 31 years old married women with 3 childrens. I am suffering from hyperthyroidism for last 9 years I am taking thyronorm 88 mg recently I was done lipid profile the triglyceride level was 225 out of 125 & rest of the test were normal please advise me some medicine for triglyceride my weight is 60 kg.

Hello, thanks for the query. Since you are on thyronorm tablets, the condition is hypothyroidism. In that condition if tsh is not well controlled (between 3 to 4 mu/l), then even lipids do get affected. You have not given correct details about the lipids. What do you mean by "225 out of 125" thanks.

Dear Kaur ji, Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough of certain crucial hormones. Now a days the most common cause for hypothyroidism is STRESS and ANXIETY and FAULTY LIFESTYLE. Another common cause is IODINE deficiency. Conventional treatment for Hypothyroidism tends to involve hormone therapy that is designed to replace the low thyroid hormone levels. However, seventy-percent of the people taking thyroid replacement therapy continue to complain of symptoms. This is because this treatment does not solve the underlying problems that causing Hypothyroidism. They are more concentrates in bringing the Hormones to normal range. But this is not the proper treatment. Homeopathy for Hypothyroidism offers supportive therapy in the symptomatic management of Hypothyroidism and can also helps in improving overall health. Homoeopathy helps to produce thyroid hormone naturally by stimulating the immune system and helps in better functioning of the thyroid gland. The main advantage of opting for a homeopathic remedy for Hypothyroidism is that the medicines used for its treatment are made of natural substances and do not cause any side-effects. For further details can consult online. Thank you.

Diabetes & Thyroid - Are These Related?

Diabetes & Thyroid - Are These Related?

Diabetes and thyroid disorders are the two most common problems affecting people since ages. Diabetes, as is known to all, is a medical condition whereby the body fails to synthesize insulin, a type commonly known as Type-1 diabetes. In another type of diabetes, known as Type-2 diabetes, the body may become insulin resistant. This disorder of the endocrine system can wreak havoc, giving rise to a host of health complications and medical conditions if not treated and managed on time.

The Thyroid hormones (produced by the thyroid glands) play a significant role in various metabolic pathways of the body. Certain conditions (stress, obesity, diseases, medications, to name a few) can affect the production of thyroid hormones, thereby interfering with the normal body activities and metabolic processes. While Increased production of thyroid hormones (T3, T4, TSH) results in Hyperthyroidism, reduced production can give rise to Hypothyroidism. LIke Diabetes, Thyroid diseases also have the potential to throw life in jeopardy if the absence of timely management and treatment.

Are diabetes and thyroid problem interrelated?

This question has baffled scientists and researchers for long. Various studies and research establish a relationship between Diabetes and Thyroid disorders. The Beta cells (Islets of Langerhans) of the Pancreas are responsible for the insulin production, while the thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid glands. Both the pancreas and the thyroid glands are part of the endocrine system. A scientific paper published in the Journal Of diabetic Research states that the level of the thyroid hormones in the body is directly related to the insulin secretion. An overproduction of thyroid hormones trigger the Beta cells of the pancreases to produce insulin in an increased amount (resulting in Hyperglycemia). On the other hand, a decreased production of thyroid hormones (Hypothyroidism) gives rise to a reduced insulin production by the Beta cells triggering Hypoglycemia.

Some studies also suggest that people with Type-1 Diabetes (an autoimmune condition) is more likely to suffer from Thyroid problems and disorders. In fact, thyroid problems can make the condition more severe, resulting in serious health complications. Thyroid problems may also occur in Type-2 diabetic patients, especially women. However, the extent of damage may be less severe as compared to those with Type-1 diabetes. In this context, it is important to mention that people with low levels of thyroid hormones are likely to suffer from Type-2 diabetes, particularly in pre-diabetic patients.

Thus, it is important that people with diabetes or thyroid problems should get undergo regular medical check-ups and screening tests to avoid any complications. According to the American Diabetes Association, every diabetes patients (especially Type-1) should undergo the thyroid tests (T3 test, T4 test, TSH test) once in every 2 years, even if their thyroid levels are within the normal range.

Though diabetes and thyroid problems are interconnected, proper management can go a long way to keep both the conditions well under control.
