what sort of problem she is having during micturation?burning muctiration?does urine contains blood? ie red or pinkred coloured urine? you need to get urine analysis by consulting UROLOGIST in your area, bcoz it likely any person old age should be comeout from renaltb, any mass anywhere along tract should be ruled out first,if infection is cause,must be treated at earlist, otherwise things vl end up in renal failure.regarding gastritis take one cap pan-d befor breakfast in morning,then she can take akt4,all tabs in 1/2 hour after food preferably with fruits,gradually she vl over come from gastric problem as you told,remember you never stop giving akt4 just bcoz of gastric, otherwise she may develop multidrug resistanceTB,which is incurable.any way take care,gud luk.

My Husband was diagnosed with graves disease , was on carbimazole for a couple of years, which was successfully keeping his TSH within normal levels, but then suddenly wasn t. He took the radioactive iodine tablet in June this year, then he had a very low TSH so upped his medication again (after stopping for the treatment) then suddenly from one month to the next, his TSH level went from very low to very high, indicating a serious level of hypothyroidism . He saw his specialist, who said to reduce the amount of carbimazole he was on from 20mg per day, to 15mg per day. He feels terrible. It has been a month now since his last blood test, and if his TSH remains so high, would it not be wise to remove the Carbimazole altogether? Why would the specialist not suggest stopping that drug immediately?

Hi Doctor, I am 39 with a tubal ligation 6 years ago. I also had Graves Disease which we treated with radioactive iodine about 10 years ago and have been great since except for vitamin b shots monthly which help my fatigue. I am having a menstrual cycle this month for over 20 days! At first, I thought it could be related to the factors above, but, I also have a herniated disc and just received my 2nd epidural cortisone injection and see that this could be a side effect. Any thoughts? I am seeing my endocronologist today and my Gyn tomorrow.
