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.

I am using thyronorm 125 mg one tablet every day since 2011. Right now all things are going well. My question is whether I have to continue or what to do please suggest.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
If your tsh is within range after taking 100 mcg of thyronorm every day then that's all that you need to continuously do. Thyroid hormone deficiency is tackled by proving this hormone in tablet form to the patient every day. Since you are already controlled with a set dose - you just have to continue this good habit.

. I have thyroid problem. Daily I used thyroid tablets of 50 mcg. Now it is in normal stage. Sir I have one doubt please clarify that. Some people told to me that thyroid people won't get pregnancy. Is it right?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then there is no problem with becoming pregnant. For priper control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units / l. For pregnancy to occur and have a healthy baby throughout pregnancy tsh should be around 2 milli units / l.

Mr. Lybrate-user, for controlling diabetes following things are important: 1) take prescribed medication correctly without missing a dose. 2) take a restricted diet giving exact calories based on ideal body weight (ibw = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), 3) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 4) consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day), 5) refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk, 6) exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking is an ideal one. 7) periodically check blood sugar levels, keep a record and check hba1c% once in 4 to 6 months, should be maintained <7%.

My doctor has prescribed me thyroid medicine for 1 month and asked to do prayaam, walking and avoid food rich in iodine. Now I have 2 situations, first is I can take all precautions along with medicine and second without medicine, as because he said its slightly more than reference range. Please help me out with this.

DOES SUGAR CAUSE DIABETES?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
DOES SUGAR CAUSE DIABETES?
Sugar itself doesn't cause diabetes. But lots of sugar splurges can point you there. Too much of anything, including sugar, can pack on pounds, for one thing. Heavy bodies have a harder time using insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar. When your body resists insulin, blood sugar and your risk of diabetes go up.

Sir, it is better if you get a detailed blood test for diabetes, which includes fasting, after food sugar levels, hba1c% and lipid profile and also routine urine examination and inform the results. With those details I can guide appropriately. If diabetes is present whatever type it may be, treatment has to be started. I await your details.

I am a thyroid patient from 1998 and daily I am taking Thyronorm 100mcg tablets. I check periodically T3, T4, & TSH levels. But recently upon the advice of a Physician at Dilsukhnagar I am checking my TSH levels only during the past 3 years. Now my TSH come down to less than 0.01. I want to consult an Endocrinologist immediately. I want to know whether I have to see the doctor with the 3 reports or only TSH is enough.

In ayurveda its very well explained condition called udak (water-jal) meha. If not managed well (exercise, diet n medicines n rasayanas) all types of meha can land in prameha. Its non curable stage but can be controlled well. To avoid all complication on micro arteries n nerves. Now modern medicine is sharing dm ominous octet but ayurveda shared prameha dushya dashak (10)
