MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is caused by autoimmune response by body where body try to destroy thyroid gland and its enzyme. Anti-tpo anti atg is mostly positive or either of it. Thyroid peroxidase is enzyme needs to build t3 t4 hormones from iodine. The best way to treat is via levothyroxine supplementation. Iodine is raw material but when enzyme is destructed by autoimmune system, supplementing raw material is not of much use.

I am a diabetic patient. I get Continues choking sensation very often. Is it any disease?
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query Your information is very scanty. There is only mention about having diabetes, but no details about blood glucose levels & HbA1c%.Plus no other info on BP, lipid profile etc, so it is difficult to give any opinion why there is choking sensation. Please get a detailed blood check up, plus ECG and then come back. Thanks.

My mother was treated for bilateral pulmonary embolism and during post discharge regular intake of warfarin for 6 months suggested. She is diabetic and also bedridden due to minor compression fracture in backbone as well as two minor cracks on pelvic bone. Due to warfarin intake blood in urine observed followed by urine infection further requiring intensive care on hospitalization. Is there any proven substitute for warfarin either in ayurveda or else homeopathy?

Your mother has multiple problems. 1. Pulmonary embolism, for which she needs to take anticoagulants. There are substitute drugs available (if she is having problems with warfarin). These drugs are either in injectable form (low molecular weight heparin injections) or tablets (newer anticoagulants). The safety profile of these drugs is better than warfarin and the do not need strict monitering like warfarin does. 2. Backbone compression and pelvic bone cracks could be due to osteoporosis (weak bones, sply in females after menopause). Osteoporosis in itself needs treatment (calcium, vit D and specific drugs). So discuss with your doctor in detail about osteoporosis, and secondary prevention of thrombosis (blood clotting and embolism).

There is no permanent end to the hypothyroidism. She has to take medicene through out. In diet there are restrictions like cauliflower or broccoli, but don't matter much. Take the medicene and eat everything and enjoy life.

It is in the range of impaired glucose tolerance or prediabetes. At this stage diabetes can be prevented by lifestyle modification with healthy diet and regular exercise.

Garlic is an old remedy for many diseases, and diabetics could also gain much from it. Garlic could help the heart, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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, stomach pain is not due to thyroid.

What is the mail symptom of thyroid desires. Since I have had thyroid in childhood.

What is the mail symptom of thyroid desires. Since I have had thyroid in childhood.
Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned what was the condition that you had as a child. Because thyroid is an endocrine gland present in all of us. It produces hormone thyroxine, which is essential for development and functioning of brain, for a large number of metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of that hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. So it is unclear by saying" I have had thyroid" hypothyroidism causes swelling of face & lower limbs, slow heart rate, tiredness, early fatigue, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, weight gain, in females irregularity of menstrual cycle, excess flow, plus anxiet and depression. If untreated can cause serious consequences. Hyperthyroidism causes loss of weight, increased heart rate, palpitation, protruding eyes, anxiety, agitation, sexual disturbances etc.

Hormone based medicines once started will be continued for ever. You can't afford to give gap ever or can't adjust dose without endocrinologists' opinion. Alternatively herbo mineral ayurveda medicine is a better choice. People do not like slow response but what if fast acting med is to be taken for lifetime! for complete and specific treatment, pl send reports and doctors diagnostic opinion.

General Physician, Faridabad
I am a diabetic person last 5 years and I take insulin so how i control it without insulin?
what are your current sugar levels,,,only after the report it can be commented whether insulin can be removed or not. Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-The most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health is to lose your extra weight. This will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-the timings at which you have your meals should be set fixed and at regular intervals each day. This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate. Remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:-Exercise is very important and a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual. 13-Avoid alcohol consumption:-Alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. choose sugar-free drink. 14- dairy products :-Dairy products are high on fat content such as cheese, curd, milk etc. So instead consume skimmed milk products , low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Do not have more than two cups of tea or coffee every day. Try green tea instead.

What will be the symptoms to find out whether having thyroid or not. Requesting your valuable answer please.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the base of your neck. It releases hormones that control metabolism—the way your body uses energy. The thyroid's hormones regulate vital body functions, including: Breathing Heart rate Central and peripheral nervous systems Body weight Muscle strength Menstrual cycles Body temperature Cholesterol levels Much more! So if you have any changes in above function, you should get your Thyroid profile done.
