Hi I am having issue of thyroid I just come to know that I am suffering of thyroid so please explain due to which deficiency thyroid issue is coming.

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), Diploma in Diabetes (UK), DFSRH (UK), DRCOG (UK)
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
Hello, I am assuming you are having hypothyroidism. This occurs due to the thyroid gland not producing adequate amount of thyroid hormones T4 and T3. Now-a days hypothyroidism is mainly due to autoimmune thyroiditis in which the body's defence system fights against the body's own organs. Iodine deficiency in diet can also lead to hypothyroidism. Hope this helps you thank you

These are for diabetes and vitamin tablets ( pregalabin ). If you have diabetes at this age you are type 1 diabetic and insulin is a must. The side effects are different for each tablets but not serious to stop tablets as controlling diabetes is the most important aim to avoid umpteen complication of it. Need not worry about side effects ans a all people have these without any bad effects . you can consult me for private guidelines

lybrate-user, She seems to have multiple problems. High BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. There is no mention of weight, height, PP glucose level, drugs being taken for diabetes and TSH level as well as dose of thyroxine. Longstanding high BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. To reduce creatinine protein intake needs to be reduced. Plus BP should be in good control. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user the information provided is insufficient and your father requires detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Diabetes should be strictly controlled. Diabetic foot need detailed evaluation and imaging and has to be treated accordingly.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take. for constipation you can take digestive foods,anzyme ...tab. charcol 1 at night dail.

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
The best diet for thyroid is selenium, iodine, zinc, Iron, copper, vit-B which can be supplemented through tablets, anti-oxidents, avoid soya beans, gluten. You should avoid anything in the cabbage family, such as kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage. These foods interfere with thyroid function.

The reasons for burning pain in epigastric & hypochondriac region could be many. But invariably such a symptom may occur due to excess acidity and or peptic ulcer. But since he has cardiac problems sometimes those conditions also mimic such symptoms. So it is better to consult your local physician. If simple excess acidity is there then that can be controlled by using drugs called proton pump inhibitors, on empty stomach.

For water rention restrict your salt intake and increase your water intake. There is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.
