How to avoid having thyroid if you have a tendency to have it? And if you have little thyroid at the starting level how to cure it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, if there is family history of hypothyroidism, it may occur in the offspring also. There is no specific method to avoid it from developing. However, using iodinated salt regularly so as to prevent deficiency of iodine leading to development of hypothyroidism, is one method. Secondly it is better to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, avoid maida and products made out of it. Plus use low fat milk products and eggs. Plus exercise regularly to maintain normal weight. If sub clinical hypothyroidism develops then also above measures hold good. Hypothyroidism being a thyroxine deficiency disorder, there is no cure, it can only be controlled when it does occur. If it occurs then treatment is for lifetime. Thanks.

Hello, blood sugar level of 320 mg (fasting or pp not mentioned) is very high, suggesting uncontrolled diabetes. Needs urgent treatment so as to control the sugar level. It is essential to bring fasting glucose to about 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. Otherwise a lot of long term complications related to diabetes can set in causing severe difficulties. Foods to be avoided are sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, items made out of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Should exercise daily at least for 1 hour, brisk walking is a better option. If you need any specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with all the above details plus her weight, height and dietary pattern, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

You seem ok with these med. Except occasional spurts in sugar levels. I would sincerely advise you to get support of some herbal combo along with these med. If you get response in few weeks, you may continue. Uncontrolled and sustained dm will effect your helath by way of neuropathy and retinopathy and other problems. Your diabetologist must have cautioned you.

urine sugar is not measured quantitatively. 1 + stands for mild (roughly more than 180 mg%) and so on. During our MD days, we would rely upon urine sugar estimation as blood glucometers were not freely available. but, in present days, urine sugar has become nearly obselete . you have very high blood sugar levels, which can be dangerous. consult with a good physician immediately and take proper medicines.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are close to over 300 million (30 plus crore) diabetes patients world over. In india there are over 6.5 crore. If diabetes were to be cured by either homeopathy or ayurveda, many of those would have recovered. Even long term complications would not have occurred in those. But the fact is on the contrary. We have increasing number of diabetes patients ending up with retinal problems and becoming blind, getting chronic kidney disease due to diabetes, going into end stage kidney failure, over 1 lack feet are amputated in india alone due to diabetic foot going in to gangrene. If diabetes was to be cured by those medicines you will agree all these things would not have occurred. Diabetes can only be well controlled, complications can be prevented by modern medicines only. Still if you want to use other medicines choice is yours.

Hi there are no symptoms for thyroid because it is a normal gland present is all of us, producing hormone thyroxine. Deficiency of this hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. Of these hypothyroidism is more common. This causes weight gain, slow heart rate, sluggishness, tired feeling, fatigue, joint pains, intolerance to cold, dry skin and hair, hair loss, in ladies there is irregularity of menstrual periods, excess flow, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety and depression etc.

Why blood sugar control is so important

The average blood sugar rises gradually and as it rises there is damage occurring throughout the body. Out of control blood sugar levels can lead to serious short term problems such as hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, or diabetic ketoacidosis.

In the long run, uncontrolled blood sugar can also damage the vessels that supply blood to important organs, like the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. This can occur even when you feel OK. That's why it's so important to take action as soon as you're diagnosed with diabetes. Our bodies are amazing, but unfortunately once you have a heart attack or stroke, or your kidneys fail, or you become blind, the damage can't be undone.

The good news is that paying attention to blood sugar control can help keep you healthy and prevent health problems from happening later. Some tips:

Keep your blood glucose within your goal range as much as possible. Work with your diabetes team to develop and maintain a plan.
Take your diabetes medication as prescribed. If you're on insulin, ask to see a diabetes educator to learn how to adjust your dose.
Increase physical activity. If you aren't physically active, talk to your health care provider about suitable activities. If you haven't exercised in awhile, consider beginning with five to ten minutes of daily physical activity and gradually increase your activity to at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.
Achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Even a 5 percent to 7 percent weight loss will help you better manage your blood glucose.

The quality of your future life depends on the decisions and actions that you take today.
