I have an hypothyroidism. What should be done for it.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I have an hypothyroidism. What should be done for it.
Foods to Eat Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, including: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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, but ask your doctor beforehand.

At your age it is most often not necessary to go in for blood sugar check up. However, if parents have h/o diabetes or any of the siblings have diabetes then it is better to get a test done. Thanks.

Your sugar levels appear in good control with present medication that is on. The pain in heel is possibly a condition called plantar fasciaitis. For this there are few specific exercises which an orthopedician can advise you. Plus apply ice twice a day for about 10 minutes / twice a day. Also use soft foot wear (with cushuned heel) at home and outside.

How can I know to have diabetes without testing?

MD - General Medicine
General Physician,
Diabetes can be there without any symptom so only blood test can decide. But if you are having frequency of urine, more thirst, weight loss and desire to eat more then more likely that you are having diabetes.
