I was told by my HCP that I have elevated
Diagnosis and question to discuss with the endocrinologist explained below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand your concern.
The presence of thyroid antibodies is related to an autoimmune disorder which cause a thyroid disease.
In this medical condition, your immune system makes antibodies that attack normal tissue.
High insulin level can be related to insulin resistance.
This medical condition is related to the fact that the cells are resistant to the insulin and are unable to use it as effectively.
You can discuss with the endocrinologist about the specific treatment.
You can also ask the endocrinologist about the diet that you should follow.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thyroid issues can be related to insulin resistance.
Hi again dear,
Your blood sugar level seems to be related to pre-diabetes.
In prediabetes the blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
While on insulin resistance, the cells are resistant to the insulin that your body produces.
They are unable to use it as effectively, leading to high blood sugar.
There are several studies that can relate thyroid issues with insulin resistance.
It can be explained through differential effects of thyroid hormones on the liver and peripheral tissue.
I would recommend to follow diet with lean proteins and plenty of non-starchy vegetables to help reduce insulin insensitivity.
Feel free to ask me again for further clarification.
Take care dear,
