Mr Pravin, If she has hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine tablets should be started. Dose of the table will depend on body weight and TSH levels. Plus she should avoid soy beans and soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Daily 1 hours exercise is also equally important to maintain normal weight.

Mr. Lybrate-user, blood glucose levels mentioned look well within control. What is the hba1c%? it should be <7. If one maintains these levels then energy level of the patient is usually good. Bp should ideally be 140 / 80. May be needs to improve the treatment. Walking helps better utilisation of blood glucose also makes person feel fresh and energetic. She should walk at least 15 to 20 minutes with in the house premises or around it. Walk 2 to 3 times a day, so that a minimum of 45 minutes of walking is done by the end of the day. If possible she should also learn pranayam and practice it daily. It helps improve energy level and also helps in relaxation. Thanks.

I am happy to see that all your readings are really very good and you are in excellent control. Ideally fasting and pp blood sugar should be checked at least once a fortnight, which can be done by glucometer at home. Hba1c to be checked once in 3 to 6 months. With the treatment that you are on hypoglycemia is unlikely to occur. If sugar control is good as is with you all other complications will not occur. You might increase your exrcise time to a bit more say an hour or more.

So explain this Harvard study “A study at Harvard found that women who ate two or more servings of low-fat or non-fat dairy per day, like skim milk or yogurt, had 85% higher risk of infertility than those that ate full-fat dairy products.” Low fat milk process from same research “Let us get rid of one fallacy which is that skim milk is actually milk that has had the cream skimmed off the top. That actually sounds logical but it is not how is done, at least not in this modern world. That process would not remove all the cream so what is done in modern processing is the milk is spun around with centrifuges, eventually completely separating the cream (fat) and milk. It is first clarified, then separated, then pasteurized (or ultra-pasteurized), and then finally homogenized. This over-processing has now removed every healthy vitamin, living enzyme, and natural mineral. Welcome to your now-dead beverage……Skim milk will not support life. So by removing the cream you have essentially turned the milk into something completely useless, especially the pasteurized variety as you have not only removed the healthy fat but you have also as stated removed the living nutrients.” So doctors are recommending one solution for weight gain and letting people to multiple major problems infertility, natural strength.

In a diabetes patient sometimes hypoglycemial does occur. If blood sugar goes below 70mg /100 ml or even further down below 50 mg then patient may feel dizzy. The best thing to do is give some sugar or gluco tabs which are available. Even candy can be useful. Hypoglycemia hardly happens in a normal person. Hypoglycemia is more common in patients who are on insulin injections.

Endocrinologist's decision must be logical and it should be respected. He must have some calculations in mind. He ll do the best which is available in allopathy. But the limitations and capacities of modern science can not stop advancement of disease and effects of disease in the long run. Neuropathy, retinopathy etc creep in many people inspite of many best treatments. This does not mean that allopathy is bad. It saves life. Whereas the aftereffects of disease and medicine may be checked by herbal support. Herbs may not save life in emergency in present day scene but definitely benefit in lifestyloe disorders and chronic diseases like dm. I suggest you not to play with decision of endocrinologist. If any apprehensions, get second opinion only from an endocrinologist only and not from general doctors. I suggest you continue with your current regime.

No need to worry about these medical results. First of all try to take a curative treatment for your thyroid problems. Do not worry about High triglycerides. It will come down gradually with some simple medicines. Do regular exercise and follow low fatty diet habits. Include more salads in your plate. Avoid fluorine products from your day to day activities. (eg. High flourine Tooth paste, etc)

lybrate-user, Are you referring to "hypothyroidism" or "hyperthyroidism" Because thyroid is the normal gland in everyone of us. When it is not producing enough thyroxine, hypothyroidism develops and excess activity causes hyperthyroidism. In any case since these are hormone related conditions, treatment has to go on for lifetime. If hypothyroidism (which is more common) then thyroxine tablets have to be taken in specified dosage for lifetime. That is the only treatment. Thanks.

Honey is fructose a type of sugar which is converted to glucose in the body. Having honey in whatever form is not advised for a diabetic person, as it means one is taking sugar directly which will raise the blood sugar level directly. If you are a diabetic patient then it is not advisable.

For a diabetic person balanced diet has to be given, based on weight and physical activity. Since he is paralised his diet has to be restricted about 1200 to 1400 kcal/d. He should consume more green salads, fruits like papaya, apple, orange, guava, pear etc. No red meat, fish and chicken with less masala can be taken. Curds and butter milk and milk are good.
