lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism means our thyroid gland starts producing less and less of hormone thyroxine. This hormone is essential for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus takes part in multiple metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, it deficiency causes multiple problems like - weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, dry skin, dry hair, hair fall, irregular menstruation, excess flow, infertility, abortions, miscarriages, anxiety and depressive tendency, joint and muscle pains etc. To find out if one has hypothyroidism a thyroid assay has to be done. If hypothyroidism is detected, thyroxine supplement has to be taken for lifetime. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism in India is due to iodine deficiency most of the times, autoimmunity in India is less common as compared to western countries.
Few dietary restrictions which a thyroid patient should follow
1 cabbage
2 chhole, rajma, brinjal
3 mooli, curd, achaar
Avoidance of these things will give less irritation to thyroid gland

Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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,

Diabetes I a life long disease. You should continue medicines even if sugar is controlled. Yes, its very important to get it checked regularly because diabetes is a progressive disease and you may need an increase in medicines with time and also you need repeated testing for diabetes complications.

Mtolerance, lybrate-user, the blood glucose levels fbs 109 mg & pp 147 mg/100 ml both are slightly higher than normal. Classified as pre-diabetes (impaired glucose tolerance, igt). It means that in future there is a possibility of developing diabetes. This particularly so if your parents have diabetes. Secondly if you adapt a modified life style then it can be completely prevented. Thanks.

A therapeutic diet in itself can solve many of your problems. Dietary therapy prescribed by a registered dietitian is needed. You need to provide me daily food intake example.

Please stop all dairy products and eggs .Go for a plant based diet .Diabetes can be reversed with strict diet and lifestyle changes and minimal medications. All animal products have antibiotics, steroids and growth hormone injected for rapid growth of the animal and more milk production. So please stay away from diary products and eggs.

TSH =0.16 DOSE eltroxin 100 and 112.5 alternate day .WHAT DOSE should I take now.
Hello, Thanks for the query. With TSH at 0.16 mU/L, you need to reduce the dose to 100 mcg per day, then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks. If TSH remains at around 3 mU/L, then continue the same. If the level is still lower than 1 mU/L then reduce the dose further to 87.5 mcg per day. Thanks.
