Dear lybrate user, try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If it does not work than, contact for personalized program as per your hormonal and metabolic status. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Brisk walks or jogging for 45 - 60 minutes every day.

Is it necessary to have all symptoms to be diabetic or only one symptom can show that a person is diabetic.
Hello lybrate user Symptoms of diabetes include, increased frequency of urination, increased thirst, incresed appetite, weight loss,tingling sensation of legs, generalized weakness etc. Not all symptoms may be there. If in doubt better get your fasting blood sugars and post lunch blood sugars tested. Take care.

With tsh level 10.03 mil unit/ml, doctor must have already suggested the treatment with thyroxine tablets, dosage depends on weight and tsh levels. Please start the same and keep checking thyroid levels periodically to see the dosage is enough or needs to be increased. Along with that exercise regularly to avoid gaining weight. Also avoid soya and soya containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, radish, peanuts and coffee. Increase consumption of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati.

I'm suffering from diabetes,
Fasting 128 and pp 150
Please suggest medicines for this problem.
Fasting 128 mg, shows diabetes but pp 150 mg is in the pre - diabetes range. Hence, it is better if you get hba1c% done. If that is >6.5% then diabetes is confirmed and in that situation treatment is needed. If diabetes is not confirmed (hba1c%<6.5), then yu need to take precautions like reduce weight (ideal body weight 60 kgs), exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, food products made of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), smoking and alcohol. Daily at least 1 hour's exercise is needed. If you follow a modified lifestyle, then you can delay or prevent developing full fledged diabetes. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, tell him take small & frequent meal. For type 2 diabetes avoid simple carbs & simple sugar in diet. Don't take sugar, gur, honey, juices, cold drink etc. Don't take potato and other starchy foods. Take more & more green leafy vegetables & salad. Meal gap should not be more than 3 hrs. For hypertension take low salt in diet. Don't use table salt, chips, papad, achar etc. Use less oil in cooking. Don't use ghee, butter, cream & fried foods. Do regular walk/exercise/ yoga or any other physical activity. I think it will help you, you can take an online diet consultation to get a chart.

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

If you have thyroid disease -- whether you are hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid), whether you hashimoto's, graves' disease, or other conditions, what you eat can have an impact on your health. Here are ten things to know about thyroid conditions and your diet, food and beverages, and their interaction with your health and medications.

  • Goitrogens are substances -- occurring naturally in certain foods -- that can cause your thyroid gland to enlarge. The main goitrogenic foods are cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage, among others, as well as soy foods. Goitrogenic foods can also function like an antithyroid drug and actually slow down the thyroid and make it underactive (hypothyroidism.)
  • Coconut oil recommended for thyroid patients, and while it can be a healthful option, it's not a cure
  • One should not take coffee until an hour after you've taken your thyroid hormone replacement medication. Otherwise, the coffee can affect absorption, and make your thyroid medication less effective.
  • Iodized salt in some areas of the world, iodized salt is an essential way to prevent iodine deficiency, cretinism and retardation due to iodine deficiency in pregnant women.
  • Many thyroid patients struggle with constipation, and extra weight. One of the key tactics that can help is increasing fiber intake, particularly from foods.
  • One of the most powerful things thyroid patients can do to help their health and metabolism is to drink enough water. Water helps your metabolism function more efficiently, and can help reduce your appetite, get rid of water retention and bloating, improve your digestion and elimination, and combat constipation.

Hello, there are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Diabetes is a slow killing diseases. It cannot be felt many times in initial days. You need to get your sugar tested at least once or twice in a year haphazardly, so this will be safer rather than waiting for some disease to happen. Still if you have queries, please let me know. Take care :)
