Mr. Lybrate-user, you have not mentioned the blood glucose levels (fasting & pp) and your age. The reason for blood glucose not reducing or not coming to normal may happen due to either inadequate dose of insulin or food intake is more than the actual need. At 51 kg weight, unless you increase daily exercise, caloric intake has to be 51 kgs x 25 cals = 1275 calories. Your present intake appears to be higher and exercise is very much inadequate. You need to exercise at least for 1 hour or more. If you want specific advise please come in a private conversation with all the above details, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Always try to eat 3 proper meals when you are on insulin with light snacks in between. Try to eat one slice of garlic every morning empty stomach as this not only decrease cholesterol but also decreases your blood sugar levels.

I am 28 years old female and am suffering from Thyroid (normal level of thyroid should be between 0.25 mg-5.50mg, but mine is 8.50mg. Can you please me the foods to be avoided and foods to be taken. I mean the diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
you are very right about normal range of tsh levels. At 8.5 milli units/ml, with normal t4, the condition is classified as sub- clinical hypothyroidism. This normally is not treated with any drugs. Treatment is advised only once the levels cross 10 milli units or there are troublesome symptoms with lower tsh levels. As regards food intake you have to have a balanced diet, but avoid certain foods like - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, radish, mustard and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati or roti. Do not use refined flour like maida. If you are taking non- vegetarian diet then take lean meat, skinned chicken and fish. Exercise regularly, that is important. Further, if one is desirous of having conception, then before conception tsh levels have to be brought down to around 2 mill units/ml. Keep that in mind. Thanks for the question.

Thyroid problem & Homeopathy:

Thyroid is an Endocrinal Gland that secrets Thyroid Hormones which balances the Metabolism.When the secretions altered, the depending on the lower r Higher levels, there will be Either Hypothyroidism r HyperThyroidism. In Hyperthyroidism, there will be symptoms like loss of Wt, thinning, Anxiety, increased Heart beat{Palpitation}, Tremors, Puffiness round Eyes, Excessive Sweat, Moon Face, Enlargement of External throat(Enlarged Glandular swelling called as GOITRE) in severe condition, Stare look, Mentally confusion, Dlirium etc are the main significant symptoms of Hyper thyroidism.
In Hypothyroidism, symptoms r quite altered. Like here there will be More Gain in weight, Dyspnoea, Dryness of Skin,increased sensitivity to Weather changes, mostly Intolerance of Cold,Irritability, mood swings, Disinterested in work, sleepy, Weakness etc r the Symptoms for Hypothyroidism.
But Hairloss, Unwanted hair Growth, Irregular periods, Delay in Menarche, Miscarriages or Infertility are common in both.
The reasons for Thyroid Disturbances are , Excessive r less consumption of Iodine in Diet, Excessive Intake may b either because of other medications, which indirectly contains more iodine content or, induces Gland for more harmonal secretions,Hormonal Imbalance because of lack of co-ordination b/w Hypothalamus, Pituitary gland{which is another endocrinal gland, which indirectly controls the Thyroid},Excessive smoking,any Viral illness,Chronic Disorders, Any other medications, Improper intake of Diet, Hereditary, genetical anomalies are the main reasons for this Irregularity.
Mostly it is common in women, the age of menopause, @ the age /after of Menarche or in pregnancy time, due to the natural hormonal imbalance.If its physiological, it will be normal automatically after some times, but if its related to any other pathology, then there should be medication help needed, based on various checkups, like blood test, USG etc.
Some times, it could b suspected in the neonatal , childhood period also, based on the symptoms Mental retardation, Stunted growth, Obesity, Amenorrhoea or early puberty,Lower IQ etc. Then also, we can go for Thyroid profile test along with other Growth hormonal Checkup , to explore the diagnosis.
Right Time Diagnosis, Regular Medical Checkup,Proper T/t will help to get cured gradually.
But If ignored,neglected,then the C/o will lead to other complications, even cancer also.
In Homeopathy,Medicines like Thyroidinum, Iodum, Bromium, Calcarea carb, Calc. Iod, Lyco, Nux.Vom, Nat. Mur, sepia, Lapis alba etc all will help in balancing the harmonal secretion, if taken according to their symptom similarity, individualbasis, as per Expert?s Guidance.

What are the side effects of Tab Metformin? Does a dose of 500 mg is good at the start. Do I require to take this tablet throughout my life after starting the dose? What things will naturally control my blood sugar level? Are there alternatives for allopathy medicines?

The common side effect of Metformin is gastritis. Metformin alao depletes Vit B12 and hence can have long term hematological and neurologicsl side effects. This can easily be mitigated by appropriate Vit B12 supplementation. 500 mg is a good start. Can go upto 2gm per day under supervision of a physician. I prefer the "SR twice daily" option. Many need to take it life long. Diet, exercise and nutrient supplement in appropriate dose will help. Yes, there are alternatives to allopathy. But why look outside Allopathy? A more progressive, holostic Allopathic approach is what I advocate for my patients and it works very well.

When I measured my fasting sugar after 8 hours it was 119 while after 12 hours it was 100. Which measurement should be considered? pp is 129. Hba1c is 6. 7. Do I need to take medicines?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

Your fasting sugar is fine but your hba1c levels are above the cut off mark of 6. 5. I would recommend that you get your hba1c checked again after 3 months. Do continue to excercise and maintain a diabetic diet

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Sugar or jaggery both are not to be used by a person with diabetes. But if one has no diabetes then there is no problem in eating either of these substances. Agar aap ko diabetes nahi hai, to kuch bhi dikkat nahi hai. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It would have been better if you had mentioned TSH value. Unless that is known, no comment can be made. TSH >10mU/L means presence of overt hypothyroidism. That needs to be treated. Thanks.

You have to follow healthy dietary habbits. Maintain a healthy weight, go for exercise. Avoid fried fatty food, junk food, preserved food. Sugar and salt intake sould be moderate. Start taking 1 tsp Amla and 1 tsp alovera juice in a cup of water every early morning as it helps in detoxification of the liver and would help in better nutrient absorption. Do some physical activity. Follow healthy breakfast, have fruits, healthy lunch including high fibre like salads and veggies. Follow green tea twicea day. Follow light dinner. Drink plenty of water.

Yes your hypothyroidism can cause complications in pregnancy. Thyroid hormones are necessary for brain development in children. In pregnancy tbg increases. Target tsh in first trimester is below 2-2.5.
