Hi. Thyroid conditions may cause generalised itching on your skin. Apply good moisturisers on your skin after bath. You may use coconut oil. Use mild cleansing lotion and avoid soap. Get your thyroid profile repeated and see of your dose needs any adjustment. Avoid direct contact of woolen clothing on your skin, wear cotton clothing underneath.

Gestational Diabetes - 7 Things You Must Know About it

Gestational Diabetes - 7 Things You Must Know About it

Gestational diabetes is a kind of diabetes that happens during pregnancy. Diabetes is referred to a condition where your blood glucose or blood sugar is very high. Although, glucose is good as it used by your body for energy, but excessive glucose in your blood can be harmful for both you and your child. Gestational diabetes is mostly diagnosed in the later stages of pregnancy. If gestational diabetes is diagnosed in the early stages of pregnancy, then it is quite possible that you may have had diabetes before you became pregnant. Treating gestational diabetes can help both you and your baby stay fit and healthy. You can protect both, yourself and your baby by controlling your blood glucose levels.

Here are 7 things that you need to know about Gestational diabetes:

  1. Every three to eight out of 100 ladies tend to develop diabetes during pregnancy, a condition known as gestational diabetes. Fortunately, it can be dealt with and even kept away by maintaining healthy lifestyle choices. Eating leafy foods and avoiding sugar-rich things, is a vital step for both control and counteractive action. Exercise, after consulting your doctor can guarantee that you have a healthy pregnancy.
  2. In diabetes, when your body's glucose or sugar levels get so high that the carbohydrates and sugars cannot be converted into energy, the excess starts accumulating in your body. This additional glucose can harm the vessels in your kidneys and all through your body, particularly in organs like eyes.
  3. Two or three factors might cause danger for creating gestational diabetes, both inside and outside of your control. If you are overweight before you get pregnant or while you are pregnant or your family history shows that you are hereditarily inclined to the sickness, you will probably build up the condition.
  4. One will have to stay on the right path as far as medication and insulin goes. Your specialist may prescribe that you require diabetic pills or insulin to help you control your glucose levels.
  5. Your weight can bring about complexities during the delivery in case of gestational diabetes. So it is best to keep your weight in check in order to have a smooth sailing pregnancy and delivery.
  6. Gestational diabetes can likewise put ladies at risk of contracting preeclampsia, which can bring about a number of side effects and complexities. Side effects brought on may start from swollen feet, legs, fingers, and hands to hypertension and even seizures or strokes.
  7. Apart from the risks of having gestational diabetes during your pregnancy, it might affect the child later on. Your baby may have a higher danger of obesity as it develops, both in the teenage years and youth. Youngsters who are overweight may suffer from type 2 Diabetes in the long run. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist and ask a free question.

If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood Sugar Highs and Lows Type 2 diabetes decreases the body’s production of insulin, which is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Without enough insulin, sugar builds up in the blood and can damage nerves and blood vessels. This increase of blood sugar also increases your risk for heart disease and stroke. Over time, high blood sugar, also known as hyperglycemia, can lead to more health problems, including kidney failure and blindness" Keeping blood sugar stable can help prevent the long-term consequences of fluctuations, high blood sugar can cause a number of symptoms that include: Fatigue Increased thirst Blurry vision Frequent urination It's also important to know that you can have high blood sugar and still feel fine, but your body can still suffer damage, Symptoms of high blood sugar typically develop at levels above 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL" You can have high blood sugar that's between 141 and 199 and feel perfectly fine,. Over time, your body can also get used to chronically high blood sugar levels, so you don’t feel the symptoms, she says. On the flip side, if you’re not closely monitoring your blood sugar levels, they can drop too low. Warning signs of low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, include: Dizziness Irritability Sweating Weakness Lack of coordination Keeping Your Blood Sugar Steady With certain strategies, you can help prevent spikes in your blood sugar levels, Rather than focus on things you shouldn't have, try incorporating the following foods and healthy habits into your daily type 2 diabetes routine: Go nuts. Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and pistachios contain healthy fat that slows the body's absorption of sugar. But be sure to limit how many nuts you eat in one sitting because even healthy fats contain calories, Smithson says. Just six almonds or four pecan halves have the same number of calories as one teaspoon of butter. Eat whole grains. Oat bran, barley, and rye are fiber-rich foods that contain beta-glucan. This soluble fiber increases the amount of time it takes for your stomach to empty after eating and prevents spikes in blood sugar. Remember, though, that these foods are still carbohydrates" Whole grains will still raise your blood sugar, just not as quickly and as high as processed foods, Veg out. Packed with fiber, non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, cucumber, and carrots can also help prevent surges in blood sugar levels while providing essential nutrients. Spice up with cinnamon. Cinnamon may do more than just add flavor to foods. A 2013 study published in the journal Annals of Family Medicine showed that cinnamon is linked to a significant drop in fasting blood sugar levels. Cinnamon may stimulate insulin secretions from the pancreas, Although more research is needed, Smithson says there’s no reason why people with type 2 diabetes shouldn't try to add cinnamon in their diets. Be versatile with vinegar. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives suggested that vinegar could help slow the absorption of sugar by the body. The research revealed that 2 ounces of apple cider vinegar improved fasting blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. Although the potential health benefits of vinegar are still being investigated, Li-Ng often advises people with type 2 diabetes to take 1 tablespoon of vinegar with each meal, saying that any type of vinegar is good. Don't skip meals. It's important to spread out your daily food intake, starting with breakfast. Consuming more food in just one or two meals a day causes greater fluctuations in blood sugar levels, Li-Ng says" Three healthy meals a day with two nutritious snacks in between can help maintain stable blood sugar, she says. Don't drink on an empty stomach. If you haven't eaten, drinking alcohol can cause your blood sugar to drop up to 24 hours later. This happens because the body is working to get rid of it. If you want to drink alcohol, check your blood sugar first. It's also important to eat before or while you drink. Another caution: Smithson says that symptoms of low blood sugar, such as slurred speech and dizziness, could be mistaken for drunkenness. Plan ahead. Anticipate the unexpected and carry healthy snacks that can prevent your blood sugar level from dropping too low.

Hi Your weight seems to be more. You will have to lose atleast 8 to 10 percent of your weight to control your thyroid problems. Also your HbA1C report says your a non diabetic (if your not a diabetic and not on medicines) but a Fasting blood sugar of 111 says you have impaired glucose tolerance and you have a risk of becoming a diabetic in the future. Follow a low calorie diet and lose weight. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy.

Diabetes is disease of lifestyle. It can't be cured but only controlled. There are lakhs of people who controlled their diabetes without medicines. It can be kept under control for years. But it usually happens only in those who have mild diabetes.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually sub-clinical hypothyroidism is not requiring any treatment. TSH level up 9.9 mU/L is considered as a subclinical level. But if a person has presence of troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism including excess weight gain, then treatment is advocated. It is better if you get a Anti TPO antibody test also to if there presence of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT). Because in HT at lower level of TSh also there are symptoms of hypothyroidism. As regards CRP there in not much of a worry. There is no cure for either subclinical or overt hypothyroidism. Only thing is to take regular thyroxine for lifetime once the disease is confirmed. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.
