I have thyroid. Recently It was confirmed by diagnosis. Is there any permanent cure?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a deficiency disease, so that hormone (thyroxine) has to be supplemented every day from outside. Hence there is no cure. Treatment has to be on for lifetime.

Medicine taking is not the solution dear, you must be taking proper medicines under guidance but if you are getting infections frequently than first thing you should get thyroid testing done, and than you may need to hydrate up your body because any symptoms of throat comes with symptoms of nose also dear the symptoms you are getting are due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin and unexplained weight gain. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Mr. V N lybrate-user, Long standing diabetes does affect peripheral nerves leading to neuropathy and pain. Primary need is to have a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg /100 ml & HbA1c% <7. If this is achieved there can be a faster improvement in the condition. Plus if pain is more, one may have to use certain drugs to control it along with strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

The best treatment of gout consists of restoring the balance of vata (air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose level of 256 mg is very high. It has to be brought down as early as possible with appropriate medication. To be in control fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP should be 150 to 160 mg mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If this is not done, then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes related multiple vital organs. Plus looking at your weight and height it clear that you are obese with a BMI of over 30 kgs/M2. This has to be brought down to 23 kgs/M2. A person with diabetes can eat following fruits like papaya, apple, orange, sweet lime, water melon, guava, pear & pomegranate but only about 100 g a day, that too when blood glucose is well controlled. Thanks.

I am 14 years old and I have thyroid disorder I take 75 mg. Of thyroxine med, please suggest me what diet should I take daily?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Mr. lybrate-user, There is no special diet for hypothyroidism. Only thing is a few foods need to be avoided like - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard, coffee. Also should avoid bakery items and other foods made from maida. Always whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Consume a good deal of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Take milk and milk products and eggs. Avoid red meat. Thanks.
