Hello these days thyroid issues are increasing due to high iodine content and there are adverse effects of it on body so follow this as you get a pack of salt fry it nicely in a pan till there is a colour change of light brown n during this process you may find the smoke and odour coming from that frying pan, (which is very bad) that is iodine which gets evaporated. Try this then you may not suffer for hair fall n others symptoms.

You need to treat your thyroid. Homeopathy helps to cure it. Avoid cabbage soyabeans broccoli. Brisk walk 45 min or aerobics would be good.

I am 35 years old and suffering from HypoThyroid for the past 2 years. I have been taking my medication on time. Initially I took Thyromom 25 mg and then 50 mg and now its 75 mg. The numbers have been fluctuating. I have started doing my exercise for the past 6 months. But I am unable to reduce weight. Please let me know how can I go about. Also every three months I do check my TSH levels to monitor the levels. At the moment my TSH levels are 8.75.

Go for walk daily. Avoid stress. Some relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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,

You can definitely take badam, walnuts and figs (anjeer) but in moderate quantity. Like 5 - 8 badams, about 25 g of walnuts and 2- 3 pieces of dry anjeer. But what is most important is to have a very good control of sugar levels. If you inform me the fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c and weight, height and level of exercise daily plus medication being taken I can guide better.

I am diabetic type 2 male person aged 73 years. I am on oral medication. My everyday dose is as follows. Morning empty stomach 1 tablet Glyclazide 80mg plus i tablet 500 mg merformine. Evening before dinner 2 tablet 80 mg Glyclazide plus 1 tablet 500 mg Metformin. With this my sugar remains under control. Last testing done 2 months back indicate HbA1c as 7.1 and fasting sugar level 112 and post meals as 143. I have one more problem the waistline is constantly going up. It measures 40 inches on date. My height is 5feet 5.5 inches and weight 77 Kgs. I have no extra flesh except at belly. My BP level is also well under control. Earlier my HbA1c was 6.9. I donot know why the belly fat is going up with my best care. Some people tell me it is because of Metformin which I am taking. Please advise what care i should take to reduce the belly fat. Further what care I can take to reduce my HbA1c reading. My creatine level of kidney is also at 1.3 the last limit.

I am pretty sure the people who tell you that your belly fat is because of metformin are either not doctors or self declared degree less doctors. Metformin is the basic medicine which helps to decrease the belly fat and BMI of a diabetic its a wonderful drug and you are taking minimal amount only which is moderate dose. Gliclazide may increase your belly fat as it is insulin secreting drugs and insulin is a anabolic hormone and puts weight on you. i suggest change your medication. You can easily increase metformin to a maximum of 2 grams in divided dose. For further consultation kindly come in private question section.

Mr. Lybrate-user, tsh level above 6 milli units is considered as sub clinical hypothyroidism. Usually treatment is given after the tsh level crosses 10 milli units / ml. Your bmi is 34.43 kgs/ m2, which is grade 1 obesity. Is the weight increase recent one or you have been having this from earlier? because hypothyroidism does lead to weight gain. Some experts are of the opinion even at sub clinical level, it is better to give thyroxine tablets. That is done if any symptoms related hypothyroidism are noticed. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use iodinated salt. Exercise regularly and take a restricted diet.

I am suffering from obesity and hormonal problem both at the same time. My age is 13 years height 5 ft and weight 63 kg. My lower back and thigh pain sometimes. I got my first periods 1.5 years ago. Then after 3 months I got my second period. And whenever my periods comes it continues till the 12th or sometimes till 15th day even after taking medicines like sylate which stops bleeding. This happens on every period and also my period gets delay for 3 to 5 months. I consulted a gynaecologist for this purpose. She suggested me Triquilar (levonorgestrel & Ethinylestradiol tab) it is a pack of 21 tablets which she said to take 1 tablet a day sequence wise. Whenever I take this tablet and complete a dost of 21 days. I continues this medicine for 3 months. Everything gets fine, my periods come on time when I take these but when I don't everything becomes worse as previously. A doctor suggested me to consult an endocrinologist and said that your increase is weight is also related to hormones. I gone through T3 T4 Tsh insulin checked which is 26.9 while the upper limit is 27.

You are too young for taking medicines. TSH is high, which shows you have hypothyroidism that leads to weight increase. Also get PCOD checked. In general please avoid packed foods like bread, sandwich, burger, pizza, biscuits, chocolates, noodles, salty snacks, ice-cream, colas, packed juices etc. Have good quantity of fruits and vegetables daily. This will help in weight reduction.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your query is very nonspecific, therefore it is very difficult to give any opinion. You should have given following details to understand the situation clearly: Fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, TSH, T3 & T4. Plus her weight, height, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. So if you want a clear guidance please come back with these details. Thanks.

My dad was 53 years old and he is diabetes for past six months, how to cure that completely.
Only way is to treat the condition with either oral anti diabetic drugs or give insulin injections for life time. Along with this he has to avoid sugar, sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Exercise regularly for at least 1 h a day. He has to adapt a modified life style to remain fit and under control.

In diabetes diet plays a very important role. You need to be very particular about food choices & timings to control blood glucose levels. Even medicines will not work properly unless you are particularly about food choices. I would suggest you to properly follow the do's and don't of diabetes so to control the blood glucose levels.
