Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets.

There are no side effects provided your TSH is kept in the normal range (0.4-4.5 mU/L). Hence keep monitoring your TSH regularly as suggested by your endocrinologist.

Lybrate-user, blood glucose level of 200 mg, if it is fasting then it is very high. But if it is after food then moderately high. I am sure she must be on some treatment for diabetes. In this communication we are supposed to give positive suggestions only and general guidelines like diet control, exercise and weight reduction etc. If you are looking for specific prescription then please come in a private conversation with following details: fasting, pp blood glucose levels, hba1c%, present treatment details with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done daily. Based on those details I will be able to guide about proper treatment. Thanks.
