It has to be properly diagnosed first by a Consulting Physician and Orthopedician for Rhematism, Calacneous spur, Tendon inflammation, Calcium deficiency etc. Try dipping affected leg in hot water for 15 minutes and immediately after in cold water. Add little salt to water. Occasional pain killer for temporary relief can be taken with precautions about hyperacidity. Seek specialist opinion.

1. Maintain your body weight. 2. Do not fast/ don't have a long break in meals. Instead of having three big meals, start 5-6 frequent but small meals. 3. Do regular light exercise along with meditation. 4. Take more sprouts. 5. Instead of pure curd, take diluted curd mixed with cucumber, onion (raayta). 6. Use cow milk and its products. 7. In fruits, you may take papaya, apple, orange, pear, jamun, guava in average quantiy. 8. Soyabean chunks, dal, and atta is good. 9. Sabudana khichri is good in breakfast. 10. Curd made by methi seeds is good (boil the milk with methi seeds and make curd of this).

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is essential to control TSH very well. It should be maintained <3 mU/L for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism including swelling of face and legs & feet. Therefore, it is necessary for you to increase the dosage of thyroxine tablets to 12.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks. By then if TSH level reaches the desired number, then continue the same if not then dose may have to be increased by another 12.5 mcg and TSH should be checked again after 6 weeks. Thanks.

My mother having an thyroid problem which type of treatment should take for it and what to does or what to not in this case.

Hi  First : medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain,muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as reproductive  and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio ,weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly.Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms.No soya ,nugget,chunk,tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres .Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried)and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food,chips,pickles,sauces as they contain  large amount of sodium .Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess.And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol.It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines,diet and exercise.  You will start  better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation :5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care Dr.Amrita Basu

it is better if you avoid eating banana and prefer other fruits with low glycemic index like apple oranges pears peaches cherries and berries etc. for good blood sugar control you need to limit portion size of meal in each serving. occasional eating of single banana wont raise your sugars much if you are on regular exercise and timely medication.

I have thyroid t3 -69 t4-56 and tsh 6.9 I am taking theoroxine 100mg 1od kindly guide about dose I am 47 year male.
your tsh level is 6.91 you can take tab. thyroxine 75 mcg. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

Mr Vishnu, You are having T1 DM, if so then the only treatment is taking Insulin injections daily for life time, there is no option. You have to take care and maintain sugar levels with in normal limits like fasting closer to100mg and PP between 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7. Apart fromInsulin injections you have to control diet and also exercise regullarly.
