Hair fall is definitely linked to Thyroid. Lethargy and dullness are both linked to Diabetes and Thyroid. If you think that you have thyroid- you can get tested a.s.a.p to let your concerns get settled. Don't sit on your health problems- Take some action.

Ways To Treat Thyroid Dysfunction!

MD - Microbiology
General Physician, Bangalore
Ways To Treat Thyroid Dysfunction!

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland do everything from maintaining your heart rate to regulating your body temperature to controlling your body weight. 

Millions of people worldwide suffer from thyroid dysfunction and several don't know about it. This is primarily because people don't tend to link the common symptoms first with a thyroid disease. Some people suffer from mood swings, trouble with memory, weight gain or fatigue, all of which they look upon individually as a problem and hence not piecing together the puzzle of their real medical condition. Here are a few insights that'll help you cope:

How does the thyroid gland work: About 85% of the hormone produced by our thyroid gland is T4, which is an inactive form of the hormone. After T4 is made, a small amount of is converted into T3, which is the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is then converted to free T3 or reverse T3. It is the free T3 that forms the base of thyroid functions. 

What is hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, accounts for 90% of all thyroid imbalances. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism develop slowly, often over a number of years, which is why it is often missed from regular treatment charts. For instance, fatigue and weight gain are often attributed to stress, lifestyle changes and natural ageing process. But as time goes by, some of the symptoms show a higher level of manifestation like muscle weakness, elevated blood cholesterol, thinning hair, puffy face, hoarse voice and slowed heart rate. 

If left untreated, hypothyroidism may lead to goiter (enlarged thyroid), increased memory problems, low blood pressure, decreased breathing and in extreme cases, unresponsiveness and coma. 
This disease may also occur in newborns, infants and children. Symptoms include excessive sleepiness, poor muscle tone and constipation. It is important to diagnose and treat it early, as in severe cases it may lead to mental and / or physical retardation. In children and teens, it can result in stunted growth, and delayed puberty.

What is hyperthyroidism: It's the opposite of hypothyroidism, which means in this case the thyroid overproduces hormones. Common symptoms include lack of sleep, weakness, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood pressure and hand tremors. While genetics are partially responsible for it, it is also triggered by autoimmune disorder. Hyperthyroidism can be treated with medication, radioactive iodine (not the first or best choice as it harms white cells too) and surgery. Keeping a focus on your calcium and sodium intake is crucial to curb the disorder.

Treatments: Conventional treatments rely mainly on drugs and surgery. Alternative treatments involve diet and lifestyle changes. Taking multivitamins, going gluten free, getting a good night sleep, and reducing stress is all said to help heal your thyroid gradually. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

I am a 20 year old boy. I recently had blood test in which it is found that I have thyroid i. E TSH 38.53 and my question is, Can it be cured permanently. Please do reply soon sir. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one develops hypothyroidism, then it can only be controlled by taking thyroxine in adequate dosage, but for lifetime. There is no cure. The reason is that thyroxine isan essential hormone needed for development and functioning of brain, plus required for all vital metabolic functions in the body. So it has to be daily supplemented from out side.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details. It is clear that present treatment is not really helping to control the glucose levels. There has to be a total re-look at the treatment, diet and extent of daily exercise being done. Hence, I request you to come back with following details: Fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, current drugs with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Also get her lipid profile and BP readings. Based on that information I will be able to guide properly. We will have to start with certain additional drugs and other instructions on diet and exercise. It is better if you come back wiith all the above details in a private conversation, then I will be able to give specific guidelines and prescriptions also. Thanks.

Corn is a very rich source of starch (carbohydrate) starches raise the level of blood sugar. So it is advisable not to eat corn if diabetic. Once in a while it can come as a treat.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to prevent diabetes one has to adapt a modified lifestyle. Which means maintain near normal weight, exercise daily for 1 hour or more, take restricted diet giving exact calories based on ideal body weight. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing products, high fat milk products and highly processed products. Sugarless tablet alone are not much of help.

Management Of Diabetes Through Ayurveda!!

MD - Kayachikitsa, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Management Of Diabetes Through Ayurveda!!

Diabetes mellitus type 2 (also known as type 2 diabetes) is a long term metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugarinsulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin.In Ayurveda, it is compared with madhumeha.The causes of madhumeha are:

  1. Enjoying sedentary life habits and love to sleep always.
  2. Consuming curd, milk products, jaggery preparations in ample quantity without physical activity.

The best way to combat any disease is to reverse the cause. Hence to reverse diabetes:

  1. Reverse the sedentary life that is leading an active life.If living in urban areas, take a strict regime for a walk and yoga asanas like mandukasana.
  2. Always remember,”Walk is as important as medicine".
  3. Avoid food items with preservatives, artificial sweeteners, jaggery, fruits of high glycemic index{sapota,banana}.
  4. Use only mustard oil for cooking(say complete no to refined oils).
  5. Barley should constitute the principal ingredient of food of the patient suffering from Diabetes.Use barley in ample quantity-as porridge,as flour or use barley water.Consider barley as main millet rather than wheat or rice.
  6. Take heavy breakfast before 10 a.m and light dinner before 7 p.m.
  7. Take fruits and small meals in between.
  8. Lead a stress-free life. Regular medication and pranayam is mandatory.

The role of lifestyle and diet is crucial in diabetics.Diabetes has many serious complications on all organs of the body.Maintaining HbA1c level between 6 and 7 is very important for diabetics.

The rest part of managing diabetes is done by ayurvedic drugs like bitter gourd juice(karela), methi seeds, cinnamom, gooseberry(amla), vijaysar, triphla, etc.

Nutrition is very important in managing diabetes. Not only what you eat, but how much you eat and when you eat influences your blood sugar. Meals should be at regular times with planned snacks. They should be low fat, high fiber foods with a limited amount of simple carbohydrates. Homoeopathc treatment is effective for controlling sugar levels.

Dear Lybrate user, Depending on the severity of the disease development, one of the primary methods of treating this disease is to change some lifestyle and food habits. Before making any changes, however, it is important that you speak with your doctor about your concerns and plans. Following are few guidelines that will help you out 1. Avoid Salty Foods At All Costs. Salt naturally enhances the thirst that someone has. It creates an instant sensation of being thirsty that will cause more fluids to be consumed then are actually necessary. Any foods with added sodium should be instantly off-limits. This means eliminating fast foods, salted snacks like peanuts and pretzels, and certain grocery items, like soy sauce. 2. Stop Using Caffeinated Products Whenever Possible. Some diuretics are effectively used to treat diabetes insipidus, but caffeine is not one of them. When following this diet plan, it is important to remove most caffeine sources from the diet immediately. Caffeine will cause the kidneys to extract more water from the body. Look for caffeine in these specific items. 3. Processed Foods Must Be Avoided At All Costs. Processed food might be cheaper than fresh food, but it also contains a number of preservatives that can worsen the signs and symptoms of diabetes insipidus. This would include processed cheeses, meats, breads, and boxed foods. The primary issue here is that many processed foods contain high levels of sodium to help preserve them. 4. Reduce The Amount Of Protein That Is Being Consumed. Proteins will also help to encourage the body to create more urine, which is why limiting them is a good idea. Fish, eggs, and even poultry should all be avoided in excess amounts. Even legumes and nuts that are protein-rich should be avoided. You’ll still need to consume protein in your diet to stay healthy, but keep it to recommended levels and avoid excess consumption to promote better health. 5. Water-Based Foods May Be Beneficial. Because the fluids of the body need to be continually replaced. Foods that are rich in water may be recommended as a way to avoid drinking more fluids. Melons, fruits, and certain vegetables all have high water content in them with the vitamins and minerals the body needs. ALL THE VERY BEST.

Mr Roney, If your blood sugars are as low as stated, then it is really good. Even your earlier readings show that you only had impaired glucose tolerance, not diabetes. So if you continue to live a healthy life style you can remain free from it. As regards eating rice, potatoes and sweets, you can do it with in the limit. Because eating excess can always drive your sugar higher. Plus you have to maintain a healthy normal weight.
