I am 37 years old female suffering from hypothyroidism because of that had gained weight so what should I do to loose it. Please suggest.

Do consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Use home remedies just as an adjunct treatment evening primrose oil is another great ingredient that can help hypothyroid patients. Being high in gamma linoleic acids (clas), primrose oil offers anti-inflammatory benefits and helps increase the levels of thyroid hormones. At the same, it can relieve problems associated with hypothyroidism, such as hair loss and heavy menstrual flow. Exercise doesn? t always have to be gymming or running. Simple acts like climbing stairs or playing with your kids and pets are also some fantastic ways of getting some physical activity. You can walk for the grocery shopping or to the movie theatres. Just be active and don? t sit in one place for a long time. Physical activities not only help reduce weight, but also improve our overall health as well? if you are overweight, then cut down on your weight. A loss in weight is known to significantly lower those nasty dimples from your butt and thighs? improve your cardio routine. Opt for a high interval intensity training rather than walking or running continuously for 45 minutes? stretch regularly for at least 20 minutes a day. You could try chair pose, downward facing dog, the cobra pose, child pose, and tadasana. These are some of the easiest yoga stretching poses? keep your stress away. Stress triggers the formation of cortisol. The higher the levels of cortisol, the lower the ability of your body to burn fat. This in turn worsens your cellulite? drink green tea to pep up metabolism? detoxify yourself internally and externally regularly Diet also 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon each of lime juice and honey and pinch of black pepper have this is an empty stomach twice a day. - increase intake of fruits. Salad and vegetables. - avoid fried and oily foods fatty food likes butter. Purified butter. Whole milk yogurt and chocolates -it is very important to engage daily exercise. Yoga pranayama.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Since the patient is on Tablets and Insulin, she must be having T2 diabetes. Because in T1 there is no role of oral anti-diabetic drugs. First and foremost is to achieve strict blood glucose control with FBG <100 or near 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. This will help in improving her general health. At home she should be made to walk for at least 15 to 20 minutes even with support, to begin with. She should take a proper healthy balanced diet. That should help. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its action or both. In case of t1 dm there is total absence of insulin. Both these conditions can only be controlled by proper treatment with drugs, diet control and exercise. There is no cure. Every one diabetes has to take treatment for life time and keep a tight control on blood sugar, or else there can be serious life threatening complications.

Your sugar levels are marginally raised than target levels (f<140, pp<180) you need to do regular exercise and dietery modification and if it still persists in this range, then addition of another drug required.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The mentioned report has fasting glucose as normal, but after food is in the pre-diabetes range. Which means unless care is taken she may become diabetic in next few years. F the height and weight mentioned is correct, then she is very obese. That can lead to diabetes. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. If you do not have any problem then it is good. To keep healthy, fit and free from certain diseases like diabetes, one needs to adapt a healthy lifestyle, like 1) Regular exercise for over 1 hour. You consider joining a gym and doing workouts under the guidance. 2) Take healthy diet, consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits, whole grain flour for roti and chapati. 3) Avoid maida, pastries, bakery items, deep fried foods and sweetened aerated drinks (colas). 4) Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Thanks.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Dear, your bilirubin levels are alright. Blood sugar is on the higher side but not raised enough to call you diabetic. It could be a stage of pre-diabetes. For diagnosis of diabetes the levels are as follows: a fasting glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher, or a 2-hour plasma glucose level of 200 mg/dl or higher, or a random plasma glucose of 200 mg/dl or higher a hemoglobin a1c (hba1c) level of 6.5% or higher at this moment, I suggest you do a cbc, hba1c levels and repeat fasting and pp blood sugar, lipid profile, blood pressure check-up also, meanwhile, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly.

Hi, thanks for writing in. Your fasting sugar is not reliable due to variation. Please get hba1c test done to know accurate status of blood sugar control. This is a blood test to be done every 3 months. Your medicine is to be taken after knowing the test report.

Is running (jogging) or walking fit for diabetic patient? I am a diabetic patient. Please advice.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes (whether T1 or T2), physical exercise is a must. At your age, running, jogging as well as walking all are good. The difference being running is a high impact exercise, can burn good number of calories. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.44 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Therefore, it is good if you take up running at least 3 to4 days a week and walking on other days. Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. Weight reduction itself will help in better blood glucose control. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

As funny as it sounds, sleep deprivation may make you fat — and not just because you're susceptible to cases of the late-night munchies (although there's that too). Women who get less than four hours of sleep per night have a slower metabolism than those who snooze for a full eight hours, according to researchers at the University of Chicago. So don't skimp on your zzz's, and you'll be rewarded with an extra edge when it comes to shedding pounds quickly.

Dear Tanmay, Please do not diagnose yourself. Hypothyroid status and depression share common symptoms. Sometime both may occur in the same patient. It is good that you got your t3, t4 and tsh done. When they are normal, your symptoms may be due to a depressive disorder or other reasons. Pulse, temp and bp vary according to situations and many other reasons. So do not bother so much about them. Please consult me online text, where i can see the attachment, diagnose properly and treat you with your health problems.
