I have fluffy body around my neck on my shoulder. Is this a symptom of thyroid? I had thyroid earlier during my pregnancy what should I do? Please suggest.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, do test for thyroid.

Mr. lybrate-user, When blood glucose is checked either fasting, after food or random, it only reflects that day's glucose level. One can not guarantee that same levels will be maintained every day, because our eating is different every day. The day you eat more, it will go up. If you take more sweets level will shoot up. To maintain well controlled levels, one has to have a restricted and planned diet, exercise regularly and maintain normal weight. Thanks.

Mr Ujwal, According to my knowledge, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled by modern medicines either oral or Insulin injections. Because it occurs due to deficiency of Insulin hormone. Oral drugs stimulate Beta cell of Iselets of Langerhans in pancreas and Insulin injections provide ready hormone. No other medications do this.

My mother is suffering from gout pain and thyroid from last 4 years. What is the proper treatment and medicine for it?
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

lybrate-user, If you have confirmed hypothyroidism with high TSH (more than 10 mU/L), then treatment with adequate dose of Thyroxine has to be started. Dosage will be based on TSH level, T4 level and body weight. Looking at your weight and height the BMI is 31.25 kgs/M2, showing grade 1 obesity, meaning ther is extra 20 kgs weight. This can only be reduced only if TSh levels are brought under control. Only treatment option for hypothyroidism is taking the hormone supplement in recommended dose. No other drug/s work. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes or raised blood glucose can only be controlled by proper medication, diet control and exercise. All the other things are possibly only supportive medications at the best. As regards the use of Apple Cider Vinegar, the evidence of its benefits in controlling blood glucose is very scanty. There are no properly done clinical studies to back it. So my suggestion is to follow the time tested treatment line- proper drugs, diet control, exercise and weight control. Thanks.

To treat diabetes, it is essential to take anti diabetes medicines. Karela juice has literally no role in reducing sugar level, whatever quantity one may drink. It may be used as a supportive therapy. Thanks.
