Mr. Lybrate-user, visiting a doctor often is not required, what is needed is to follow instructions and treatment advised by him. For a diabetes patient following few things are important: 1) take all the prescribed drugs reguarly as advised, do not stop or change on your own or listening to unprofessional advise. 2) take restricted diet again as advised by the physician, in diabetes the dictum is" no feasting or no fasting" 3) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 ga day). 4) always use whole grain products, do not use refined flours, highly processed foods, junk foods, sweets, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. 5) avoid alcohol and smoking 6) exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walk is a good option. Joining a gym also is good. Plus a periodic check up of blood sugar is necessary. If you have t1 diabetes then insulin is the only option in such a situation blood glucose testing is to be done more often. Initially vists to doctor may be more often.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the glucose levels mentioned show that it is totally uncontrolled diabetes. Hba1c% has not been mentioned. It is essential to have fasting blood sugar closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Otherwise you are inviting serious long term complications of diabetes like retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, foot ulcers, non healing foot ulcers and amputation as well as silent heart attacks. So my suggestion is to start immediate treatment with appropriate medications, plus regular exercise and diet control.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, causing lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland plus there are anti bodies produced by our own immune cells against thyroid peroxidase (anti tpo abs). These antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells in the gland, leading to hypothyroidism. The causes are not clear, genetic predisposition, viral infections and even taking excess iodinated salt have been thought to be the reasons. In usa this is the main cause of hypothyroidism, more common in women, the patient with ht usually have other members of the family having some or the other autoimmune disease or himself or herself may have another autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or t1 diabetes. Treatment is to give thyroxine replacement for life time. Iodine has no role in the treatment.

Lybrate-user, if you have hashimoto' s (thyroiditis ht) leading to hypothyroidism, then only treatment is to supplement thyroxine hormone by taking adequate amount daily. Unless hypothyroidism is completely controlled, efforts to reduce weight will not succeeded. Dosage will depend upon body weight and t4 levels. Please understand this is the only remedy available world wide. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the above values are fairly good, particularly t3 & t4, tsh is marginally high, it falls in to a category as sub- clinical hypothyroidism. At that level no treatment is advocated. Certain precautions like avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Regular exercise to avoid weight gain and consume more of green leafy vegetables as well as use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Avoid maida and products made out of it.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months. Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum. Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps
