I was on thyronorm 100 mcg for 1.5 years and got tested for TSH, T3 & t4 with very normal values consistently twice tested in a period of 3 months. Can I stop the medication and maintain health through yoga and fitness or should I continue the medicine? Please help!

Hi, Thyronorm is a tablet which is replacing your thyroid hormone level and even if your levels have come to normal, they are normal due to the drug and not naturally so more or less thyroid hormone replacing drug are life long and leaving the drug will slowly bring you back towards the same hypothyroid levels(you should be taking the drug). That is a good news that your levels have tested normal, now your doctor might try to bring the dose down and settle you to a lower dose than earlier but ...

Hi, Most common cause of small height is inherited from parents,but since your parents have a good height i would recommend you to get your hormonal tests like growth hormone or consult an endocrinologist because they might be really helpful to you,since your height is to small as compared to your parents. The problem can also be related to your spine but spine can never make such a big difference to your height. The tablet you are taking is fine and can be taken for a few months,you should avo ...

Greetings Doctor, I am suffering from inconsistent stool WITH NO ABDOMINAL PAIN for more than a year. I get perfect poop like that of banana as described in bristle stool chart for half of the month and then loose (not like watery stool) stool for 10 days. This change in consistency is what irritating me despite the same kind of food I eat daily. Bowel movement is once a day and in the morning after wake up. COLOR OF THE STOOL- remains on the dark brown/brown side with no undigested remnants of foods and any other kind of unwanted waste or mucus. GAS-Actually I am not suffering from chronic constipation and have daily bowel movements (for 27 days out of 31 days of a month) with feeling of satisfaction- output of stool is equal to input (food) I eat. I also occasionally (5-6 days a month) suffer from gas (comes out of anus) if I don't get complete bowel movement for one day. Gas comes out more from evening onwards. RUMBLING of INTESTINES is another a problem whether I get loose stool or bulky stool. I could hear the sound easily. It doesn’t last throughout the day and mostly heard from evening onwards. I will get constipation if I switch to processed foods and no fibre. FOOD ALLERGY -I don't have any chronic either albeit I have some issues with digesting milk but that is eliminated if drink warm milk boiled for 10 minutes with herbs like ginger and cinnamon. I can digest rest of the dairy products. I have no problem with grains. I also don't eat processed foods and drinks of any kind and stick to only natural foods but that’s not necessarily organic foods. I maintain food diary daily and have eliminated some common food which triggers my problem-white flour (maida), white sugar, eggs, potato, rice, starchy foods, wrong combination of foods, non veg foods, cheese, cold milk, cabbage, cauliflower, colocassia, broccoli, beetroot, some leafy vegetables-spinach. These causes problem most of the time but I have observed that on a few occasion they don’t trigger any unwanted reactions. I HAVE NO PROBLEM IN DIGESTING GRAINS but HIGH FIBRE IS MUST for preventing CONSTIPATION. SUPPLEMENTS-I take three in my diet. Triphala (5gm at night) to keep gut healthy; Isabgol (in the morning empty stomach) to maintain bulk of the stool and Aloevera and Amla juice at night after 30 minutes of my meal. If I stop taking them I don't get complete bowel movement.These were suggested by Ayurvedic Practitioner along with Papaya, harad fruit, Figs and Raisins. This remedy has increased output of stool and constipation is not a problem anymore. I am not taking any pro-biotic supplements-acidophilius bacterium. OTHER DISEASES-Apart from this I am not suffering from any other common digestive disorders such as acid reflux, acidity, distension of belly, diarrhea, indigestion, abdominal pain/cramps, joint pains, liver, sexual and kidney problems etc. PILES-I had non-bleeding piles for the first time since my childhood last year due to slight tight stool with complete bowel movement. It was a black grape size mass of swollen veins with blood clot. I was cured in 45 days without operation. MY HISTORY OF DISEASES-During my childhood days right after my birth, I had weak digestive system as diagnosed by doctors at that time. Constipation and blood in stool was common for first five years. As I grew up these problems went away for next five years. When I crossed the age of 10, I started to get dull abdominal pain and continued for more than year till I was cured. Then during my teen years from 15-18, I started to suffer from constipation with weak but daily bowel movements. As time passed, it started to become chronic and I had had no bowel movement for more than 5-6 days and I had to resort to strong stimulant laxatives to expel stools. Thank god that with regular exercises and switching to natural foods I have had not this kind of constipation since then. May be I have congenital disease as my mother tells me that due to financial crunch she couldn’t eat recommended balanced diet. DAILY DIET AND WORK SCHEDULE- I follow a disciplined life with waking up and sleeping at fixed time with tolerance of one hour. I sleep for 6:30 hours a day. I eat three times a day with a gap of 4 hrs. I try to eat balanced diet-1 bowl (200gm) each of complex carbohydrates porridge, yoghurt, fruits, vegetables and proteins (from veg. source only). Its very important for me to start my day with complex carbohydrate and fibre to keep stool bulky for the next day. Porridge, beans and yoghurt in the morning, only fruits or fruit juice in the noon and salads, vegetables and proteins at night. I daily do Yoga and brisk walk in the morning for 40 minutes. I am fit overall with good agility. WORK LIFE-My work involves sitting for long time since I am working in banking sector and have high stress (also prep for professional exam CAT) all the time. but I try to offset my sedentary work life with natural foods and exercises. Probably this long sitting might have some connection with piles I had last year. I now sit on chair with no spongy material. MY BLOOD TEST AND OTHER REPORTS-My complete RBC test is normal, inflammation is well below normal-C reactive test, no bacterial infection in the stool and urine composition is normal too. I haven’t had endoscopy yet. BIODATA-My age is 25 yrs, male and unmarried, weight 72 kg and height 6ft and on the thinner side. I have some bearable low back pain intermittently. Nobody else in my family have digestive problems unless they eat wrong kind of foods. PARADOX-Despite all my efforts to live as much as healthy both mentally and physically, I still don’t understand what the problem is and what the source is. It frustrates me and wonders why I have all this issues. On the other hand people are eating wrong foods, leading indiscipline life and still are fine at least with respect to digestive system. I hope that some doctors will able to tell me where I am wrong and what could be the reason behind it. Waiting with patience. Regards

Hi Doc. I am 7 weeks pregnant. I usually had 28 days regular periods ever since. Never a delay or pain. As I'm aborting the baby using mifeprex and misoprostol I need to know whether it will affect my other organs and fertility in the long run. I'm 29.5 yrs old. This is my second abortion in last 6 months. I conceived first on November 2016. After the termination of pregnancy I was detected with a small kidney stone. Moreover in 6 months I went through major issues of deficiency of vitamin d, ferratin, folate. My weight reduced from 48 to 42 kg by Feb 2017. I was trying to get them recovered and I became pregnant by June 21. I did consult three doctors but I couldn't get a satisfactory answer. I went through lft, kft, thyroid, blood count and all were normal. My heamoglobin is 12.7. it was 13.7 after my first abortion. It deceased post abortion once kidney stone was detected. On top of this I've severe mood disorder and insomania since childhood. So I've been advised to take tryptomer since I was 22 yrs. I need to take it every two three months to restore my sleep balance. I'm a regular workout person and yoga practitioner as well as into weight training. However after all these I went through my body has become weak and I'm not able to workout much. Appetite is lost or so much that I don't know what to eat or what not. Stomach infections became common. After every test and doctors consultation I still need some more answers and clarification/ clarity to my body conditions. Further what precautions I must take. It would be really helpful. Thank you
