I am 34 years old female suffering from hypothyroidism taking thyroxine tablets 100 mcg in the morning. Now it is under control but unable to reduce my weight. Feeling fatigue with body ache unable to do exercise. Kindly help.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to control weight can be successful. Only way to reduce weight is exercise and take a restricted diet. Your caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight (60 kgs X 25 calories = 1500 cals, since you want to reduce weight, then the intake has to be cut by another 500 cals per day. So daily food intake should give only 1000 calories. Plus at least 45 minutes of walking also is required. Without this there is no other way to reduce weight. Thanks.

I understand your concern because, this kind of extra weight is breeding ground for many diseases (blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, certain kind of cancers, arthritis etc), which can affect the quality of your life ahead. This is a lifestyle related issue and it can be surely treated with intensive lifestyle modification program. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibres, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Go to you tube and type 8 minute workout and you will see many options. Pick one which you like and can do. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some expert who can help you in this over extended period of time. Best wishes.

Dear Doctor, I am 61 years old male. My Glucose fasting is 110 mg/dL PP 149ng/dL. Shall i take honey/ dates/jam.

Dear Doctor, I am 61 years old male. My Glucose fasting is 110 mg/dL PP 149ng/dL. Shall i take honey/ dates/jam.
Hello, 1) Your blood glucose levels are fairly satisfactory. Your post prandial level is normal (for good control it should be less than 160) but your fasting glucose is on borderline (for good control it should less than 110). 2) So, I would suggest not to consume dates/jam/honey. They are filled with sugars. You can take fresh fruits like apples, pears, guava, orange, sweet lime etc. 3) Further you are still overweight. Your ideal weight should be around 65-67 kgs. So you should follow a strict diet and do plenty of exercise. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Walk for a kilometer rather than avoiding banana. For diabetic patients fiber and protein rich food is advisable and daily exercise is must. So take care of these things sir.

Diet Changes For Type - 2 Diabetes

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Jaipur
Diet Changes For Type - 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a form of diabetes in which the body does not use insulin properly and develops resistance to insulin.

A patient with type 2 diabetes must make several changes to his/her regular diet and food patterns. The aim is to manage the blood-sugar level of the body. Hence, a type 2 diabetes patients should follow a regular diet, which comprises of:

  1. All types of foods from different food groups.

  2. Lesser calories.

  3. Lessened and limited intake of carbohydrates.

  4. Healthy fats.

Here is a list of food items you should include in your diet in case you have type 2 diabetes.

  1. Vegetables: You must have fresh or frozen vegetables and avoid using sauces, dips, fats or salts. Intake non-starchy vegetables like cucumber, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and vegetables, which are dark green or yellow in color. Also have starchy vegetables such as corn, green peas, beans, carrots and yams. Avoid potatoes as they are pure starch.

  2. Fresh Fruits: You should include fresh fruits in your regular diet. Have apples, bananas, berries, papaya, cherries, grapes, melons, oranges, peaches, pineapples and raisins. Have whole fruits regularly, which do not contain added chemical sweeteners.

  3. Grains: Include grains in your diet and consume whole grains more. Whole grains are not processed and consist of the whole-grain kernel. Grains contain starch, which is a source of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are bad for blood sugar. Hence, whole grains, which are rich in fiber are recommended. Fiber controls the blood-sugar level from shooting up. Fiber should be included in the form of bran of oat and wheat.

  4. Proteins: Coming to protein food items, you should consume fish and poultry items often. Always remove the skin from chicken or turkey properly before cooking. Buy lean meat and trim all the fat from meat. Avoid frying and use methods such as baking, roasting, grilling or boiling. Also use healthy oils for frying purpose.

  5. Dairy Products: In case of type 2 diabetes, always use dairy products, which are low in fat. Do not add sugar to milk, curd or yoghurt as they contain natural sugar. Do not consume more than three cups of milk a day.

  6. Oils and Fats: Cut down the intake of excessive oily and fatty foods. Avoid food items that contain high saturated fats such as bacon, hams, sausages and butter. Consume food with polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fats. Oil raises blood-sugar level and is high in calorie and should be used in lesser amounts.

A type 2 diabetes patient needs to undergo several changes in his/her diet to keep a check on the rising blood sugar levels and for living as healthy as possible. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I have hypothyroidism. I am taking 75 mcg Eltroxin per day. I always feel sleepy despite having a good night's sleep. Is there any remedy?

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with thyroxine it is necessary to maintain TSH < 3mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. So please check TSH value and if it is higher than that mentioned above, then dosage may have to be increased and TSH has to be checked again after 6 weeks. It is essential to mainntain TSH at that level. Thanks.

You must be suffering from hypothyroidism and not hyperthyroidism. This disease is due to underfunctioning of your thyroid gland and is mostly irreversible, I am sorry, but in that case, you may have to continue with your treatment for life. Diabetes is also a progressive disease causing underfunctioning of your pancreas and requires similar treatment either through oral medicines and in later stages, insulin also may be required.

Dear Lybrateuser, - To control your blood sugar have more of fibrous food vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, beans, sprouts, nuts - have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, have a light dinner with protein food in it & vegetables, take a walk for 10-15 min after dinner, have a well balanced diet with controlled portion from all the food groups as not having a particular group will lead to deficiency disease & metabolic imbalance - control weight with diet & exercise + sleep well for at least 7-8 hrs at night, keep sleep & wake up time fixed.

Hi, My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests. Following are some results for the test haemoglobin- 10.3, lymphocytes - 18%, Dengue and malaria tests are negative, platelets count is 80 thousand that usually remains in this range only. He is diabetic and when he was diagnosed with low platelets, doctor said that he is having thrombocytopenia. Now I am getting worried for my dad. Kindly provide me the best direction for further investigation as now I am thinking that the present doctor who is checking up my dad doesn't seem me convincing. Thanks.

Hi,
My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests...
Give him Papaya leaves juice 2 spoons daily in morning for 5 days for increasing platelet counts. And start giving him naturamore male powder with milk for 2 months. Morning and evening. This will make him energetic, and remove the fever of what-so-ever it may be. And ask him to drink plenty of water 3-4 liters in 24 hours. He will be absolutely fine and will start feeling good with 2 days. By that time, just try to manage fever, it will also subside. Don't worry. :) Still if you have any more queries, then please let me know. I will help you out. Take care. :)

Thanks for the query. Brown rice is better than white variety as it provides more fibers (3.52g) for 100 g, plus certain minerals like magnesium, phospherous, selenium, plus vitamins like B1, B6. Therefore it is good to consume. It is unlikely to bring down the glucose levels, but will help in reducing the surge. Again the quantity one takes is the main reason for glucose levels. Thanks.
