Anti-thyroid medications. These medications gradually reduce symptoms of hyperthyroidism by preventing your thyroid gland from producing excess amounts of hormones. to eat (and why) to improve your thyroid function: Cruciferous vegetables. Eat them raw, cooked or juiced. ... Brazil nuts. These are the richest dietary source of selenium, which is essential in converting thyroxine to its active form, T3. ... Sea vegetables. ...

lybrate-user, From the details mentioned and drugs being taken, you have T2 DM, hypothyroidism, hypertension, dyslipidemia (high lipids) and possibly high uric acid. You have mentioned that diabetes is well controlled with HbA1c% 6.7. Burning sensation is usually seen in diabetes due to peripheral neuropathy. When the disease is on for long time, in spite of good control neuropathy is seen to develop. Tight sugar control helps in better control of pain. Vitamin D deficiency per say has no role in causing burning sensation. It helps in maintaining better bone health. However, looking at your weight and height it is clear that there grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33 kgs/M2. This needs to be controlled. Weight reduction will help in maintaining a much better health. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. Only on achieving that level efforts to control weight can be successful. So please look into that. Taking Vitamin D3 is good please continue that. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, as mentioned hypothyroidism treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. There are no other remedies. In fact on treatment tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units / ml, then only all the symptoms including hair loss will be under control.

I am 23 years. I would like to know the one crucial factor that will lead to diabetes. Does staying in urban or rural impact diabetes since I stay in a city. Also want to know how to stay away from diabetes ?

Diabetes onset is multifactorial. No way to predict it. Live healthy, eat healthy, act healthy, have peace of mind and regular exercise. Does not guarantee that you will not get diabetes but is advised. And be realistic, there are no absolute solutions for diseases which are 100% foolproof. What in life is 100% certain?

I am facing diabetic problem in 7 month of pregnancy. Will this problem be solve after pregnancy?
Gestational diabetes is generally during pregnancy, in most of the cases the sugar levels come in range after delivery. But there are chances of the diabetes persisting in some cases. So you have to be very careful and lead a very healthy lifestyle throughout your life. 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

I feel so week and fall down on road and feel exhausted I am working women pls advise ...
It needs to be known whether the blood sugar levels quoted by you are with the dose of glycomet or without it. If these levels are without medicine on the day of test, then with medicine there is a possibility of further lowering of sugar levels causing hypoglycaemia. That may be the reason behind your falling on the road and feeling of exhaustion. You may consult privately with details of your reports.

Hi Yes it is safe. But check your kidney and liver function frequently as the dose needs to be adjusted if there is any derangement in the kidney and liver function test.

For High BP and diabetic people which form of exercise is more appropriate Yoga or gym.

For High BP and diabetic people which form of exercise is more appropriate Yoga or gym.
Yoga is what I recommend to my patients. Basically, when you exercise regularly, it is all good, but once the gym membership is over, all exercises cease. This has a bad affect on health and diabetes. Yoga is something which doesn't need sophisticated equipments and can be easily done as per the patients convenience. Amongst exercises, swimming is the best.

Mr tapash kumar, try and increase fiber content in your diet by consuming more salads, flax seeds (25 g, roasted) or fenugreek seeds (roasted or powdered). Fruits which are permitted like papaya, apple (with skin), pear and guava. Drink enough water. Normally these measures help in overcoming constipation. If nothing works then the laxatives which you are already taking.
