Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid is small gland present in all of us, located on the cricoid cartilage in the front of throat, a butterfly shaped gland. This secretes hormone thyroxine, necessary for development and functioning of brain, and for all vital metabolic activities. Deficiency causes hypothyroidism, leading to weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, early fatigue, tiredness, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, menstrual irregularities in women, infertility, dry skin. Dry hair, hair fall and anxiety and depression. Excess activity of the gland causes hyperthyroidism, leading to weight loss, agitation, rapid heart rate, palpitation, protrusion of eyes, excess sweating, intolerance to heat etc. Both these conditions can only be controlled by proper treatment. There is no cure.

Endocrinologist,
I have thyroid and my weight is 119kg. My question is how could I lose weight?
Hi at 119 kgs it is very tough to loose weight with diet and exercise. Unless of course one is taking very restrictive diet along with a good amount of physical exercise. Otherwise the best option now a days is" bariatric surgery" which ensures a definite weight loss. There are a number of top hospitals and surgeons offering this treatment now a days.

Dear, Can feel your anxiety about your health. Your insulin dose needs to be increased with help of treating Dr. This isn't due to resistance to insulin that you've been taking. If you use glucose ter to monitor your blood glucose, it'll be very easy to adjust the dose of insulin. Insulin dose is always changing based on your requirements.

My mom is a diabetes patients so please give me some tips to control her sugar.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
My mom is a diabetes patients so please give me some tips to control her sugar.
? Follow the CTM (cleansing, toning and moisturizing) routine daily. ? Exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. This will help to remove the dead cells and open pores, thus lightening your skin tone. ? Always use sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out from home. A good sunscreen with SPF 40 will help to prevent tan in the Indian climate. ? Drink adequate amount of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A good sleep at night is also very important for healthy and glowing skin. Indulge in home remedies like face packs and scrub for natural fairness Fruit Pack: Fruits can work wonders for your skin and also provide you with naturally glowing skin. Prepare a fruit pack by combining the pulp of an avocado, papaya and cucumber. Then add 2 teaspoons of cream or malai. Mix well to form a paste and apply all over the face. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. People with oily or combination skin can avoid adding cream, they can add multani mitti instead into the pack Papaya: Papaya fruit contains an enzyme called papain that helps to exfoliate the skin, and this makes way for new skin cells to emerge.Papaya also contains vitamin C. Choose a green papaya to make your face mask, papain is most concentrated in a green papaya. To make a papaya mask: ? Peel and slice the papaya. ? Put it in a blender to make a smooth paste. ? Apply it on your skin and leave it for 20 minutes. ? Rinse it away with warm water. any querries inform me?

I am a thyroid patient - I have facing problems on hair loss any remedies.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
YOU CAN USE HAIR OIL MENOXIDIL APPLY ON HAIR TWICE A WEEK. Some physicians feel that ferritin levels -- ferritin is the stored form of iron -- are integral to healthy hair growth, and that levels that are not optimal may contribute to hair loss, or impede hair regrowth. Have your ferritin levels checked, and if not optimal -- Sara Gottfried, MD says that levels below 80 are not optimal for thyroid patients suffering hair loss -- talk to your doctor about supplementing with iron.In some cases, your dermatologist may recommend that you try drug treatments. The two popular drugs for hair loss -- Rogaine and Propecia -- both interfere with DHT's ability to destroy hair follicles. Neither drug is safe to use during pregnancy, however, and so they are not as commonly used in women of child-bearing age. Rogaine, the brand name for minoxidil, is available without a prescription. Women typically use a 2% minoxidil solution applied to the scalp twice a day, and men use a 5% solution. Improvements with minoxidil are slow - it may take months to see any improvement, and a year or more for any dramatic change in hair loss and regrowth. To maintain improvements, minoxidil needs to be continued daily. Propecia, the brand name for finasteride, is a prescription drug taken in pill form. It is not to be used by women in child-bearing years because of its ability to cause serious birth defects, but it has been shown to help some women. Propecia does not, however, appear to be any more effective than minoxidil, and like minoxidil, it can take a year to see results, and must be taken for life to maintain regrowth.

it is good to know that you have been able reduce 5 kg, congratulations, keep it up. What is current weight and bmi? ideal bmi is 23kg/ m2. No specific precautions are needed. Your diet should be properly designed to meet the exact need for the ideal body weight and level of exercise. Plus periodically you should keep checking tsh levels (once 6 months). Avoid soya and soya containing foods, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, mustard and coffee as these interfere with thyroxine activity. Use whole grain flour for making rotis, chapatis, consume more green vegetables and fruits. Reduce intake of deep fried & junk foods.
