You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: 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, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

Mr. lybrate-user, The diet mentioned looks fine except following: 9 nutri biscuits, & 1 plastic packet of poha. Both these should be dropped. No replacement is needed. Rest of the diet is more than enough. There is no mention about what physical activity is being done every day. Because if one has diabetes then at least 1 hour's brisk walk every day is essential. 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.

I am taking glynase mf 1 tab daily. I am suffering from thyroid high pressure over weight anxiety depression for anxiety I take anxit plus tab daily. My sugar is not stable as of my eating habits what should I do?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
Reduce anxiety, regular exercise and consider increasing your medicines. You have not put up your reports, hence I cannot definitely say but glynase-mf is short acting and hence, maybe it is not controlling sugars in the evenings and nights.

What is type 1 & type 2 diabetes what are the sugar reading for the same?

M.Sc -Food and Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Hi , sugar or glucose readings for both are same. Se type 1 diabetes occurs when pancreas which is gland in a human body do not secreted insulin, so that the sugar level rises because of insulin which carrier of glucose which do not reaches glucose to cell and in type 2 diabetes pancreas could not secreted insulin enough amount or insulin get resist due to accumulation of fat in cell wall so insulin not able to reach glucose into cell, so then glucose rises in blood stream. Both are different. If you have any further queries, kindly consult via private questions. Best wishes

Lybrate-user, to reduce or stop hair fall tsh level has to come down to about 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level is higher than this, then hair fall may not stop. So please check what is the current tsh level. Rest of the things like using a shampoo and various oils etc is really of no consequence. If dandruff is more you may use some anti fungal scalp lotion along with shampoos. But most important is the tsh level. Thanks.

Follow the following tips:- · Pay attention to your health and food intake. · To increase your appetite, have a glass of lime water or 1 cardamom (elaichi) before your meal. · Have minimum 4 meals in a day. · Drink 1 glass of milk twice a day. · Try to enjoy your meals and gradually increase the quantity you eat every time. · A balance diet should have all essential nutrients in it. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should include combination of Both Carbohydrates and Proteins for e.g. Oats with Milk or Poha/ Upma with a glass of milk. If you do not like milk have 1-2 egg whites in the morning along with your breakfast. · You need to focus on your protein intake : Increase your protein intake e.g. milk, dairy products- cheese, paneer, lentils (dals), nuts ( soya, peanuts, dry fruits ), pulses e.g. rajma, chole, kidney beans etc. sprouts. If you are a non-vegetarian, then you can have proteins by also eating eggs, chicken, fish. Make sure you are including at least 2 serving of any of these in your daily meal. · Lunch and dinner again should be a combination of Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats which could have dal, roti, sabji/chicken, salad. · Please do have minimum 4 almonds or a small bowl of peanuts every day. · Please ensure that you drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Kindly mention thyroid profile and revert.

Have thyroid reading is 8.54 taking thyronorm 75mcg. Now facing the problem of giddiness often. Some doctors have said this is vertigo and nausea and now suggested for CT brain test. What should I do now and how can I get back to my normal state. Please suggest me the best.

MBBS
General Physician,
This thyroid value that you are telling, is it t3 or tsh? please specify or consult your doctor to assess if you are hypo/hyperthyroid or in a normal state with 75 mcg thyronorm. Thyroid abnormalities may also cause you these symptoms. However vertigo and nausea problem may be due to disease of ear like miniers disease, or labrynthitis for which you need to consult an ent specialist. Ct brain will help to identify the doctor any neurological diseases if any. Hope this helps.

How effective is the oral anti diabetic Ii drug Forxiga from Asta Zeneca labs?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
How effective is the oral anti diabetic Ii drug Forxiga from Asta Zeneca labs?
Since dapagliflozin leads to heavy glycosuria (sometimes up to about 70 grams per day) it can lead to rapid weight loss and tiredness. The glucose acts as an osmotic diuretic (this effect is the cause of polyuria in diabetes) which can lead to dehydration. The increased amount of glucose in the urine can also worsen the infections already associated with diabetes, particularly urinary tract infections and thrush (candidiasis). Dapagliflozin is also associated with hypotensive reactions. There are concerns it may increase the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis.

Dear have you been taking opinion from your doctor. I would say this can also be due to increased sugar levels and weight. Please ensure you are eating something healthy and do at least 30-40 minutes of exercise. You are just 45 and I think there is a long way to go. Do not worry, stay positive and start taking action on how to correct. Please get in touch in case you need further assistance. Thanks
