Pediatrician,
See the standard ref. For normal values for that lab, and look if they are low or not for your daughter. But once started you have to give lifelong. If still confused, visit paediatric endocrinologist. It is worth, you are dealing with a illness for rest of life.

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. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the present report it is clear that she has HYPOTHYROIDISM. I really do not understand how it changes from hyper to hypo. It is better if you mention her earlier reports when doctor had said about hyperthyroidism. Plus how long was the earlier drug Neo-mercazole was taken and when was it stopped? It will be really good if you come back with all the information in a private conversation, then I will be able to give specific guidelines and even prescription if needed. Plus also inform her height and weight. Thanks.

No problem as long as your FBS PPBS AND HBAIC LEVEL ARE Within normal limits. For more suggestions you may refer my health tips on Diabetes and diet. Fruits or dry fruits can be taken in small quantity as they are rich in antioxidant and vitamin.

Type 2 Diabetes - The Ayurvedic Way To Manage It!

Type 2 Diabetes - The Ayurvedic Way To Manage It!

Although this disorder has been present among people since the inception of mankind, the rate of increase among the number of patients in recent years is alarming to say the least. The primary culprits are lifestyle issues such as bad diet, lack of physical exercise and stress. However, some people are genetically predisposed to it as well. Diabetes is a silent killer as complications caused by it are one of the largest killers on the planet.

The Ayurvedic route
Ayurveda has a long history of successfully dealing with this scourge dating back thousands of years. Diabetes is known as ‘Madhumeha’ and is often classified as ‘Maharoga’ as it causes multiple complications. The Ayurvedic route has many facets such as exercises, filtering toxins and balancing the ‘doshas’ through diet and herbs to control the effects of diabetes. Let’s look at some of the remedies for controlling and correcting symptoms of diabetes in Ayurveda.

  • Diet: This is one of the most important changes that you need to make in your life to control symptoms of diabetes. Certain food types are an absolute no-no in Ayurveda if you have diabetes while certain other types of food are encouraged as they help keep it in control.
  • Food types encouraged in Ayurveda: Amla, bitter gourd, fenugreek seeds (methi), spinach, jamun, drumsticks, garlic, turmeric, snake gourd, barley, wheat, tulsi, pepper, soya bean, cucumber and bel (Indian Bael) among others
  • Food types discouraged in Ayurveda: Processed sugar or any food that contains a high amount of it, unrefined sugar in large quantities, sugar cane juice, oil, jaggery, ghee, cakes, alcohol, foods rich in carbohydrates such as rice or rotis in excess quantities, curd, junk and oily foods, butter, cold drinks and sweets among others
  • Home Remedies and herbs: Ayurveda prescribes many forms of juices and concoctions which can be easily prepared at home to control blood sugar levels and also limit the symptoms. Some of the herbs and preparations used in the treatment of diabetes are mentioned below.
    • Bitter gourd juice or Karela taken early in the morning
    • A mixture of aloe vera gel and ground bay leaf (tez patta)
    • Banyan tree bark prepared in boiled water
    • Cinnamon powder boiled in water
    • Neem, turmeric and tulsi preparations
  • Yoga and exercises: Exercising and ensuring that the metabolism is kept active to check blood sugar levels is of utmost importance when you are diabetic. Yoga is one of the best methods to accomplish this. In general, light walking is prescribed but there are certain yoga poses which are especially beneficial for diabetes. Some of these are:
    • Shalabhasana or the locust pose
    • Ardha matsyendrasana or the half spinal twist pose
    • Peacock pose or Mayurasana
    • Katichakrasana or the waist rotating pose
    • Naddishuddhi Pranayama
    • Surya namaskar among others

However, it is important that you are proficient in the easier forms of yoga first and then have proper instruction before you try the harder poses.

She has been taking medicines like telista mt50, stamlo5, thyrox 50, gluconorm sr, pan-D, cordarone, acitrom, rozucor10, lonapam 0.5,She has got vomiting tendency & also weakness. What should I do now? Whether the medicines prescribed by doctor are proper? So many medicines twice or thrice everyday is causing trouble .suggestion please.

As she is having so many problems of different types they have to be controlled with multiple medicines and few of them more than one time in a day. Dietary modifications and regular exercise like walking and yoga are helpful in diabetes, hypertension,high cholesterol. Pan D should not be taken regularly for longer periods. It has serious side effects if taken continuously. Use of Lonapam should be discouraged. Fasting sugar needs attention. Discuss these issues with your Doctor.
