Diabetes is not an isolated disease but a syndrome. It brings with it a host of issues, affecting almost all organs, and that is the reason it is a dreaded issue. Diabetes is the result of chronic inflammation and this inflammation gradually spreads to all other organs. One of the main organs adversely affected is the kidneys. The kidneys are essential filtration agents, and impaired kidney function can have a series of bad effects on the body.
The good news is that not everybody with diabetes will have diabetic nephropathy. However, risk factors for developing diabetic nephropathy are:
- Severe, uncontrolled diabetes
- Family history
- Prior kidney disease, even chronic infection
- Race or ethnicity (native Americans, African Americans, etc.)
- Preexisting hypertension or high cholesterol levels
If you have these risk factors, then all efforts should be aimed at keeping blood sugar at highly optimal level. Once it reaches beyond a certain level, it is very difficult to get it under control.
There would be no symptoms in the initial stages
- If you suspect that increased sugar levels could be damaging the kidneys, it is imperative to do renal functions annually to test for onset of kidney malfunction
- There could be swelling of the feet and ankles
- Urine tests may indicate increased levels of protein in the body (serum albumin in particular)
The idea is to arrest or stop damage to the kidneys.
- Reduce and maintain blood pressure within the recommended levels. This will depend on the age and overall health status. Using angiotensin converting enzymes or angiotensin receptor blockers is the most effective way to control hypertension and related kidney damage
- Keeping blood sugar within the recommended levels helps reduce or stop damage to the blood vessels in the kidneys and thereby, prevent progression
- Maintain optimal levels of cholesterol, as this only adds to hypertension, which further worsens kidney function.
- Eat a heart-healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is a vicious cycle with components including hypertension, high sugar levels, increased heart disease, which all only continues in a circle nonstop. Breaking this cyclical trend is very important.
- Diet should not be too rich in protein, as the kidney function is impaired and may not be able to handle too much protein. Talk to a nutritionist as to how much protein is required and follow it strictly.
- Reduce salt levels in the diet, and strictly do not add extra salt onto your plate
- If you are a smoker, this is a great reason to quit, as it affects all the above conditions.
- Maintain weight under optimal levels.

Thyroid is not a condition that can be controlled with a change in the diet. However, there are certain foods, which should be avoided or at least their consumption should be limited if you are suffering from thyroid disease. Let?s look at some of them:
The processed and high-phytoestrogen forms of soy, like shakes, powders, soy milk, bars, and supplements should be avoided. Soy inhibits the absorption of thyroid hormone. Soy should not form the main part of your protein diet if you suffer from any kind of thyroid disorder.
Though it is a proven fact worldwide, that iodized salt is essential for the prevention of iodine deficiency. But in excess, it is prone to be very harmful, especially for those suffering from thyroid disease. It hampers the normal functioning of thyroid if taken in excess.
In case of people who are suffering from thyroid, the concept of grazing mini meals throughout day, might actually just have the opposite impact. These patients should instead have fewer meals, placed further apart, as many mini meals will disrupt their metabolism, and misbalance their leptin and insulin levels.
If you are a thyroid patient, you should take special precautions, especially if you are a coffee person. You should take your coffee when at least an hour has passed after your thyroid hormone replacement medication. If you take it within an hour, your coffee will actually disrupt the effectiveness of your medication, by affecting its absorption.
Peanuts, Pine nuts, Linseed
Having a handful of these daily will block thyroid production.
If you have thyroid disease and consume a meal of steamed broccoli once in a while and likes to take spinach in your omelet on daily basis, it is still fine. However, excess intake of these two foods, is not at all good for you. So, take a note.
Gluten is found in mostly wheat, rye and barley, along with most of the processed foods. This is one more thing which thyroid patients should avoid.
In most of the above mentioned foods, the hampering and disruption of thyroid production happens, when they are consumed in raw state. It means that if taken in cooked form and in limited quantities, a thyroid patient can consume these things.
Raw forms should be avoided altogether. However, in cooked or steamed form, a thyroid patient can actually derive the health benefits from the foods listed above.
In most cases, thyroid imbalances are misdiagnosed, or even overlooked. However, though you cannot cure it purely on the basis of consuming and avoiding certain foods, you can certainly increase your chances of curing by observing the dietary precautions.
