Do a thyroid hormone profile from a good laboratory e.g Path care or immunoassay. The test involves a TSH, T4 and T3.
Let me know what hat the result is then we can take it up from there.
What ever happens, please stay calm.

'“You can be diabetic and still live till 100. I don’t know when I would die but I am above 80 and many of the youth could not catch up with my pace during the exercise this morning, many of them were running to keep pace me'

Obasanjo’s 30 years of diabetes

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, says that diabetes only kills those who are careless about its treatment.
Obasanjo made the statement on Friday in Abeokuta when he led hundreds of people on a road walk to sensitise the populace on the disease and how to manage it.
The road walk was organised by the South West Zone of the Diabetes Association of Nigeria in collaboration with the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library to mark the 2017 World Diabetes Day.
The 2km walk, which began at the OOPL, passed through MKO Abiola Way with 15 minutes stop-over at the premises of Sunny Yinka Oil before terminating at the take-off point.
The former president was joined on the walk by the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi; Commissioner for Health in Ogun State, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye; and the Chief Executive Officer of the Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation, Dr. Olalekan Makinde.
According to Obasanjo, if a person with diabetes takes care of himself, he will discover that “diabetes is not a killer disease”.
Obasanjo lamented the fact that many youths in the country rarely exercised, saying that because of his lifestyle, in spite of his age, he was still agile and fit.
He said: “Diabetes is not a disease that should kill.
“I was diagnosed to be diabetic more than 30 years ago but rather I am growing stronger.
“If you don’t believe I am growing strong and you didn’t witness this walk, come and see me at night, you will know I am growing strong.
“Come and see me in the morning, you will know I am growing strong.
“Even in the afternoon, you will know I am growing strong.
“What is necessary is management of diabetes.
“Some people said some diseases are incurable but diabetes is manageable and compliant.
“My headmaster in primary school was diagnosed at the age of 50 and died at age 85; you will agree with me that he tried.”
He advised diabetics to be mindful of their health and eat healthy.
Obasanjo cautioned: “What to do is that if you’re diabetic don’t be nonchalant about it and don’t eat carelessly.
“Three things are important: the food you eat, regular exercise and prescribed medication.
“Those are the three most important things.
“You can be diabetic and still live till 100.
“I don’t know when I will die but I am above 80 and many of youths could not catch up with my pace during the exercise this morning.
“Many of them were running after me.
“This is my message.
“Whether you’re diabetic or you have a family or friend who is diabetic; diabetes is not a killer disease or it should not be a killer disease unless you are careless.”
In a speech, Akanbi said he was in Abeokuta to support Obasanjo in the awareness walk, advising people to always take their health issues serious.

Have you done a Thyroid hormone profile. If not, you should do one.
What you described is what people call poor memory , buy it it may be an early symptom of dementia. If your Thyroid hormone profile is normal, you will need to see a neurologist.

Thanks. Can I get a thyroid profile done at any hospital for him or must it be a specialist hospital? If specialist, which private would you recommend?

You can do the test in a teaching hospital or in a standard laboratory like immunoassay or pathcare.

Wait and see. Don't touch it, unless for cosmetic reasons.
If it's not broken don't fix it. Sometimes the swelling can resolve on it's own with time.

Truly pregnancy can affect the thyroid gland. So you may need to do a check immediately you are pregnant and every 3 months throughout the pregnancy.

Protein in urine is the major reason for foamy urine.
Please check your urine for microalbuminuria.

Desanta has said it all. Sometimes the way you blast your urine to the toilet can also cause it to be foamy or if you just finish treatment on urinary tract infection.

Hi Doc,

Thanks for this thread. I have had Bell's Palsy in the past and I had to use Prednisolone. Then I started gaining weight and recently put on 16kg within a year. I stumbled on an article about Cushing syndrome and disease. The symptoms are similar to some challenges I have like rapid weight gain, moon face, buffalo hump. Please what do I do next?
These are Cushingoid, are you sure about these features?
How long were you in Prednisolone and when did you stop using it?
Your age? Sex?
If you are a female, you may tell anything to consider on your menstrual health.
Do you also have much/several hair growth in male peculiar zones of the body?

How long have you been on Prednisolone and what dose are you on?
What else are you taking for the Bell's Palsy?
