Hi I have hyper thyroid and I'm unable to control weight gain. Please help me out by giving me a diet plan.
lybrate-user, Please clarify whether you have hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, because weight gain is seen in hypothyroid ism. It wold have been better if thyroid assay results were mentioned. Unless that is clear, no opinion can be given. There is no special diet needed. What is required is to reduce the intake based on ideal body weight - 52 kgs X 25 calories = 1300 calories per day. Avoid sweets, deep fried food, pastries and bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads as well as fruits. Thanks.

Hello, it's said that you are suffering from hypothyroidism along with low b12. Please follow few easy tips for the same to help you better. 1. Try to take fresh vegetables and fruits to overcome the vitamins. 2. Take small walk session twice daily for atleast 20 mins. 3. Take proper sleep not more than 8hrs. 4. Keep busy with the work you love. 5. Try homoeopathy. This will not only help you to regain the balance of health but also channelize the flow of energy.

First Question: Honey contains sugar. Therefore drinking water with honey in the morning, adds up to the body's sugar level. It may not be good for health and more so for diabetic persons. Second Question. You know thyroid medicine has to be taken generally on empty stomach. Can we take this medicine along with warm water plus honey plus lemon combination on an empty stomach in the morning.

Dear lybrate-user, a breastfeeding mother with diabetes is a special situation and it'll be prudent if you visit a diet specialist who'll see your body profile and give you appropriate diet. In general avoid high calories food like sweets, fats etc. Also remember that for sugar control in pregnancy and breastfeeding period only insulin is allowed. Regards.

I am having type 2 diabetes since last 14 years. My latest FBS is 124 and PP2 reading is 165. HBA1C is 7.4. The medication taken by me is Gemer 2 before breakfast and dinner, Tenglyn 20 before breakfast and Pioglit 15 before lunch. I also do 45 minutes of brisk walking and exercise daily. I also have a diet as recommended by a dietician. Please advise as to whether any change in the medication is required to get the target HBA1C of less than 7.0.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the details provided, it is possible to reduce your hba1c% <7, by just increasing your daily exercise by a few minutes and also by adujusting daily intake marginally. There is no need to add any additional drug. You are really maintaining blood sugar levels quite well. Keep it up. With regards.

In a known case of diabetic we need to control sugar levels with medication, aerobic exercise and following a diabetic diet and we have to examine the private part for pinpointing the cause of infection either fungal or bacterial and take treatment accordingly.

I am a diabetic since last 6 years. I am too fat. I tried many medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.
