What are the vegetables that should not be eaten by hyperthyroid patients during pregnancy.

Hello, hyperthyroidism is due to excessive circulation of thyroid hormones in body. You might need to limit or avoid foods that contain significant amounts of iodine including: sea salt and iodized salt seafood eggs dairy products plants grown in soil rich with iodine as it is autoimmmune and if you have associated celiac disease than take glutean free diet thanks.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

Hello, even if you have diabetes, it is possible to join a gym and build muscles. Based on your sugar level, weight and extent of exercise your diet should be based. But first thing is to achieve a strict blood sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 6.8. Then you will have to take extra proteins to build muscles.

Dear patient. You should take low carbohydrate diet as you are diabetic. Reduce rice or wheat product in your diet take more green vegetables and fresh fruits. But you also take 100 gms of carbs daily not more than that. Fruits like mango contain 15 gms carb & 60 calorie per 100 gms of wt. So you can eat 2-3 mangoes / week but not more than 3. Yup papaya or apple or guava or pear you can take. No dry fruits are high in calorie you an take 5-6 gms 3 days in a week. Avoid fried food, junk food that will elevate sugar level. Take small amount of foods every 3 hours intervals in a day. Do brisk walk for 40 min any time in a day. Thanks.

First you get tested for diabetes type 1 or type 2 which is maturity onset. Type 1 needs only insulin + diet therapy. Type 2 is controlled with medicines + diet and type 2 rarely requires insulin & type 1 is never controlled with medicines, insulin is the only therapy.

Hello, for controlling bp try to avoid processed foods and salt intake. Can also use low sodium salt. Also for sugar or diabetes problem, atleast walking is important. Meals should be taken at regular intervals or gaps of 2-3 hours. Water intake should also be checked. Do not stress. Try to avoid any kind of alcoholic beverages. Still if required, can have 30 ml red wine once a while.
