Mr. lybrate-user Akabar, Hair loss is very common in Hypothyroidism and it is usually the last symptom to resolve. On treatment it is essential that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then only all the symptoms are in check. So please see what is the present TSh level. Thanks.

MYTH. ABOUT DIABETES?

Myth 1: I am overweight. I will eventually develop type 2 diabetes
There are many different causes of diabetes and being overweight doesn?t mean you will get the condition but it does tip the scale. The reason obesity is linked to diabetes is because it increases insulin resistance (which means greater amount of insulin is required to regulate blood glucose levels). This makes the pancreas work overtime to produce insulin. This is what causes diabetes. However, there are cases where thin people have uncontrolled diabetes and obese people have no diabetes whatsoever.
Myth 3: I can?t eat sweets or chocolate because I have diabetes
No food is absolutely forbidden as long as attention to portion control and advance meal planning is done. A piece of sweet or chocolate won?t cause any problem but it?s necessary to keep a check on how much of it you consume.
Myth 4: Fruits contain carbohydrates, so I should avoid including them in my diet
Any food that contains carbohydrate will raise blood sugar levels but the only proper way to see how high your blood sugar levels will rise is the glycaemic index (GI). The lower the GI value, the lower will be the rise in blood sugar level and the better it will be for your health. Most fruits have a low GI value. They are also excellent sources of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre, and are relatively low in calories. Also beware of fruit juices, especially the packaged ones because they?re very high in calories and sugar.
Myth 5: I should eat special diabetic foods if I have diabetes
There is no such thing as a diabetic diet. A healthy diet is one where you get 40-60% calories from carbs, 20% from proteins and 30% or less from fat. And the same is applicable if you have diabetes. Diet for diabetics should include a good amount complex carbs, vegetables and fruits. It should be low in processed foods, fat, salt and added sugar. It?s better to have five small meals a day instead of three large ones and make sure they?re well-spaced out.
Myth 6: I shouldn?t exercise if I have diabetes
On the contrary, exercise is an important part of diabetes treatment. Regular exercise, especially aerobic (walking, jogging, etc.) helps control your weight, gives you more energy and is good for your overall health. It also helps to control blood sugar elevation by increasing the body?s sensitivity to insulin.

Mr. P lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is not clear what you are actually referring to by saying. When I am trying to sleep my nerves in head are beating and unable to sleep" Because nerves do not beat. What you saying may be related to some feeling of pulsation. This kind of a feeling may be there if your BP is high. Please tell me if you have hypertension and are you on treatment for that? If yes, what is the BP level now and the drugs with dosage. About the "motion problem" Due to diabetes some times there may be constipation as well as loose motions on some occasion. Please see that you take enough liquids every day. Plus consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits (permitted. Ones, 100 g a day) that to with well controlled blood glucose. Ideally when in control fasting glucose should be <100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. For reducing constipation drink a glass of hot water every morning after you are up in the morning. That will help in clear motion. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In your information there is no mention about actual hormone levels including TSH. Unless those details are given, there is no way to give any opinion. Plus also mention about what is the treatment or the drug being taken with dosage. Then only I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: 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. flax oil, 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.

Very heavy knee pains and unable to sit
BP is normal but some times high
Sugar levels are high and taking tablets.
Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
