I have thyroid. Recently It was confirmed by diagnosis. Is there any permanent cure?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a deficiency disease, so that hormone (thyroxine) has to be supplemented every day from outside. Hence there is no cure. Treatment has to be on for lifetime.

Hello, in t2 diabetes treatment is usually begun with oral anti diabetes drugs, like metformin, glimepiride, gliptins and thiozolidinedions etc. Later insulin is used if oral drugs do not work or there very severe diabetes. In t1 insulin is the only treatment. As regards food intake a person with diabetes has to have a balanced diet like all of us. But should avoid simple sugars, sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat cheese, saturated fats, highly processed foods, butter and ghee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits and use whole grain products and avoid refined flours. As regards cooking oils a mix of oils should be used.

I have diabetes and my sugar level has increased how can I decrease it to normal?
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body.

Poorly managed diabetes can lead to a host of long-term complications like :- Heart attacks, Strokes, Blindness, Nerve damage, Amputation of Limb.

lybrate-user, Your ideal body weight should be 57 kgs, that would give a BMI of 23 kgs. So to reduce weight, your dietary intake has to be less by about 20 % of the present, plus you should exercise for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour every day. To suggest a diet plan I should know current dietary habits. Thanks.

Dont worry about your child. He is perfectly all right. Just give him any normal diet of his age, nothing specific. Like mashed bananas, curd, cerelac, mashed apple, papaya. To name a few.

Dear, a proper measure for knowing and managing mothers diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. She is on lot of medications already. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for her. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.

Please suggest diet chart (for Indian) to maintain sugar level normal for a sugar patient of 57 years old.
Mr., to suggest a dietary plan, all the information like fasting, pp sugar levels hba1c%, extent of daily exercise is needed. Because diet has to be based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight, and amount of daily exercise and present dietary habits. However, avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat containing milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products, avoid refined flour like maida and foods made out of it. Total caloric intake should e about 1700 calories per day. Thanks for the question.

THYROID DISORDER AND WEIGHT LOSS

1. Optimize Your Thyroid Treatment

Some thyroid patients -- and practitioners -- believe that if athyroid patient has gained weight, or can't lose weight, simply getting on thyroid medication will be the solution. Unfortunately, this seems to be less common that patients who, despite being treated, continue to gain weight despite eating well and exercising, or who can't lose weight no matter what diet or exercise approach they try. 

Many practitioners believe that for thyroid patients who want to lose weight, the first step is to optimize -- not just normalize -- your thyroid treatment. What is considered "optimal" Not only are TSH, Free T4 and Free T3 levels considered important, but Reverse T3, ferritin, leptin, and other issues come into play in terms of optimal thyroid treatment.

2. Hormone Resistance Issues

Some practitioners believe that hormone resistance problems -- including leptin resistance , insulin resistance , and thyroid resistance -- contribute to the difficult some thyroid patients face in losing weight . This means, having fasting glucose, leptin, and Reverse T3 tested , evaluated, and potentially treated.

3. Increase Your Metabolism

Because hypothyroidism lowers metabolism, one of the most important things you can do is to focus on is diet, foods, and exercise that can help raise your metabolism .

4. Change Your Diet

Making changes to your diet can be essential to successful weight loss. This can include avoiding overconsumption of goitro genic foods and vegetables (watch out for those raw juice diets!), going gluten/wheat-free , and limiting simple carbohydrates and sugar .

5. Get Enough Sleep

A crucial factor for weight loss is getting enough sleep . One study showed that women who slept 5 hours per night were 32% more likely to experience major weight gain (an increase of 33 pounds or more) and 15% more likely to become obese over the course of the 16-year study, compared to those who slept 7 hours a night. Some practitioners have even said it's better to skip a morning workout and use the time to sleep!

6. Try Supplements

There are hundreds of diet and weight loss supplements on the market, and very few of them are proven to be effective. But some may be of help to you in lowering appetite, lowering blood sugar, burning fat, or raising metabolism. One in particular that has some research behind it is conjugated linoleic acid . (Be careful, however, about supplements that are loaded with iodine.)

7. Get the Right Kind of Exercise

Many practitioners recommend regular exercise for thyroid patients who want to lose weight, but not excessive exercise -- the kind that leaves you exhausted or recuperating for days. My exercise of choice is T-Tapp , but other patients have found walking, Pilates, and other forms of exercise effective. The challenge is of course actually doing the exercise!
