1. For enlarged lymph glands in arm pits : This is not related to thyroid
problems. It can be due to an infection or disease of the same side hand or arms or same side breasts. Please ask her to have a close look at these sites and consult a doctor. It may subside with antibiotics if it is an infection
If i were your treating doctor I would have suggested you a complete blood count
, CRP and looked for infections.
2. If 137 that you mentioned is in kilograms, she is significantly obese. You need to have lifestyle modifications - if not controlled - medications like orlistat
- if not controlled - Bariatric surgery
to reduce weight.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
With warm regards,
Dr Ajish TP (MD,DM)
