I am sure since you are having the condition for last ten years, you must be aware of all the precautions. Still following are a few: avoid cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, radish, mustard, soya and soya containing products. Plus exercise regularly to keep weight in check. Take a balanced but restricted diet matching the needs based on weight and level of physical activity. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Most importantly take the medication as advised - early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be eaten after that for 2 hs.

Hello! fenugreek seed is good for diabetic. But one need to know one single food can't manage glucose level. Diabetes can be well managed by a good diet chart. Take small meals in every 3-4 hr. Regular interval. Avoid sweet n sugar also honey n jaggery, fried foods, ready to eat foods, preserved foods n simple carb like maida. Take whole grain cereals in limitation, lot of veggies, 150-200gm fruit (not juice. Don't skip breakfast n take a small portion of milk or product or any whole grain cereal before bed time. Do 30 min of exercise a day. Best to visit a dietician with all reports for personalized diet plan.

There is no special diet required for hypothyroidism patient. What is needed is following: 1) avoid soy beans, soy containing products, 2) avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee, 3) should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, 4) use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. 5) avoid high fat cheese and can consume low fat milk products. Over caloric intake should match the need based on ideal body weight and daily physical exercise. For exact food to be consumed in terms various items and at different times it would be better if you come in a private conversation.

I generally feels pain in the both feet and legs may be due to increased of uric acid. I tested my blood 6 months back, uric acid was increased up to 9 on that time. I take moderate quantity of wine on weekend only. I m 52 years male. Pl advise me.

The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

It can be treated from you description. You could be having fungal infection or mix infection. Controlling your sugars and maintaining hba1c near 6.4% may help in treating the infection. Antifungal capsules along with local application may solve the problem. You may have to consult /show the lesion prior treatment.

Mr. lybrate-user, TSH value of 6.543 mU/L, is just above the normal limit. Usually no treatment is advised. However, in your case with a BMI of 30.06 kgs/M2, with grade 1 obesity, it is better for you to start treatment. Otherwise efforts to reduce weight will not yield any results. Thanks.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines.

Your bmi is 31.54 kg/m2 showing grade 1 obesity. I am not aware what all the measures you have done to reduce weight. Please give details of thyroid test report, let me see that. Secondly your diet has to be based on (for caloric value) on ideal body weight that is 60 kgs, since you want to cut weight your total intake has to be very well regulated. That means daily calories should be restricted to a maximum of 1200 to 1300 kcal/day. Plus you will have to exercise for at least 1 hour. Brisk walking, aerobic exercise, jogging, skipping and swimming are to be undertaken. This has to continue for at least over a period of 3 to 4 years with same intensity. You should aim at a reduction of 5 to 8 % of present weight, initially.

Hyperthyroidism can be associated with goiterogens in your diet so avoid cabbage and cauliflower. Take minimum salt and specifically low iodine salt. It can also be due to inflammatory changes in your thyroid gland. So you consult local endocrinologist. If inflammatory then it will subside with in few months. If any other origin then with treatment within 2-3 yrs. You can inform me the reports. We can provide you medicines also. But consult local doctor first.
