If your body is not handling sugars properly, it is called diabetes. If it is not handling fat properly, then it is cholesterol problem. Many of the times, they occur together in the same person and have similar complications.

Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications.

Hi, My husband is 32 year old and he has hypothyroidism. Kindly suggest how to control it.

Hi, My husband is 32 year old and he has hypothyroidism. Kindly suggest how to control it.
Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is confirmed, then treatment with thyroxine tablets has to be initiated, which will control all the symptoms. Dose has to be decided on the basis of body weight, t4 & tsh levels. Plus soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee have to be avoided. Tablet should be taken early morning and nothing to be taken for one and half to two hours after that. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also only use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. Np maida and food made out of it. Should exercise for at least 1 h a day. Thanks.

What is the symptoms of thyroid my weight is increasing I eat very little is it thyroid tell me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
What is the symptoms of thyroid my weight is increasing I eat very little is it thyroid tell me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism does increase weight. But other symptoms also are there like lethargy, tiredness, early fatigue, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, swelling of face and lower limbs, joint pains, inability to concentrate, difficulty in speech, anxiety and depression etc. Looking at your height and weight you are having a grade 3 obesity with 44.54 kg /m2. This is probably not due to only hypothyroidism, you are probably having this (over weight problem) condition since a long time. This is a seriuos situation, please look inti it, also bet your thyroid test done to check if hypothyroidism is present. Thanks for the question.

Doctor low amh ka matlab kya hai? Eggs ki quality ka kharab hona ya eggs ki quantity kam hona.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It means that the quantity of your eggs is low. Quality is more determined by age. The lower your AMH and the higher your FSH, the worse it is supposed to be in terms of fertiliity. FSH fluctuates alot so AMH is thought to be more predictable.

I am 33 years old and having hypo thyroid from last 9 years. Please help.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am 33 years old and having hypo thyroid from last 9 years. Please help.
You continue your medicines, take foods to eat nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, including: 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, but ask your doctor beforehand.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Dear Doctor, I am having hypothyroid, in take thyronorm 50 mcg dose daily, my TSH level is 14.5. Kindly advise dose, to reduce or increase? Please reply.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Hypothyroid is not considered to be under control till the tsh report is within range. Our objective is to bring tsh within range which is usually less than 5.5. So currently your dose needs to be escalated for sure.

rSugars fluctuate depending on the diet,activity, medicine and the stress hormones released in the body. The way your body metabolises your sugar depends on the internal environment .so,it's actually not feasible to check sugars frequently. So,hba1c gives fairly average sugars over a period of 3 months. So,5.5 is good control, u need not worry but follow a balanced diet to me antain the same
