Is throat pain is signs of thyroid.
Mr. Lybrate-user, by referring to thyroid you are probably talking about hypothyroidism. A patient of hypothyroidism has weight gain, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, swelling of face and lower limb, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, dry skin dry hair and hair fall, in females menstrual irregularities, anxiety and depression. Throat pain usually is not the sign of hypothyroidism.

Hi Frozen shoulder takes a long time to heal. Some take few months others take 5 Years. If it's the pain that's troubling you, painkillers can be taken. If it's still severe steroid injections will help. Along with this physiotherapy has to be continued. Stiff shoulder needs stretching exercises. An orthopedician will help you further from here.

General Physician,

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

How to solve the problem of diabetes and after it can change in 1 month and you suggest me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its action. (t2 dm). So the solution is to take proper drugs that help in lowering blood sugar by stimulating insulin secretion and those that reduce insulin resistance. Some times insulin injections also are required. The treatment is for lifetime. There is nothing like" change in 1 month" or so. Along with drugs, diet control and exercise also are important.

Diabetes Diet

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Diabetes Diet

Diabetes diet for Indians- should have the ratio of 60:20:20 for carbs, fats and proteins. 'Per day calorie intake should be between 1,500-1,800 calories with a proportion of 60:20:20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively. 'He adds that a diabetes diet should 'have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan.'
Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions... we'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack.

diabetes diet for Indians:
- One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.
- Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach.
- Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

some major diabetes diet pointers that one should follow at home or at a restaurant.
Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals . If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts.
Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option.
Diabetes Control: Diabetic Diet Tips
High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet.
Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy.
Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others.

Small frequent meals:
A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc.
A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets . He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern).
What not to do:
Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation).
Have lots of fluid.
Limit intake of alcohol.

Non - Vegetarian

In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat.
The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet. Time to call up mom and experiment with diabetes diets!

What is the treatment for thyroid and what is the period to take medicine and risk for take long time medicine.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

What is the treatment for thyroid and what is the period to take medicine and risk for take long time medicine.
Mr Umesh, By mentioning thyroid, are you referring to hypothyroidism? If so then treatment is taking Thyroxine tablets (hormone replacement). This has to continue for life time. Because thyroxine is required for development and functioning of brain, plus an essential part of various vital metabolic activities. Hence it has to be made available daily. Since it is an essential hormone there are no side effects when taken in correct dosage.

I am 55 years, using Metsmall Tablet from the last one year. My blood sugar is not controlling.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend on your blood reports.

Well you have a stent to lad. You need to take clopidrogel and adpirin regularly. Check lioid levels control blood glucose. Exercise is good. Thymectomy (removal of thymus gland in the neck) will help to control myasthenia. Neurologist will prescribe prostigmine also. See a neurologist. Plenty of vegetables and fruits is good.

Dear sir I have a thyroid problem my weight is increased 1kg every month even I take english medicine eltroxin 100mg everyday morning in empty stomach. Please give ayurvedic or home medicine to completely recover thyroid problem and stop the regular intake of medicine.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the only treatment for hypothyroidism is taking thyroxine tablets in adequate dose, so that tsh level is maintained around 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If tsh is higher then weight increase will continue and all the efforts to reduce weight will not be useful. So please check if your tsh is at that level then efforts to control weight will be fruitful.

Mr. lybrate-user, You can donate blood as long as your blood glucose levels are normal. That is fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg HbA1c%<6.8. Thanks.

He wants to know the fruits to eat and the fruits to avoid.
Most fruits have a low glycemic index (gi) because of their fructose and fiber content. Melons and pineapple have medium gi values as do some dried fruits such as dates, raisins, and sweetened cranberries. So avoid all these and eat all other fruits.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the foods or vegetables to be avoided by patient of hypothyroidism are - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, a lot of fruits. Also use whole grain products like whole grain flour for chapati and rotis, do not use refined flours like maida. If you have any questions please do come back.

Inability to gain may be due to many reasons like uncontrolled diabetes, associated thyroid disease or celiac disease or it may be unrelated to diabetes. You need evaluation and then treatment accordingly.
