I love the concept of healing with food, food as medicine, or as I like to call it, food pharmacology

Turmeric is a plant of the ginger family that is often used in Indian cuisines. This plant has a long history of medicinal use, and  it’s most studied active ingredient has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral activity.

Historically, turmeric has been used to treat pain , stomach and liver ailments , many skin conditions like  sores, eczema and skin rashes. 

Excess inflammation is always present in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (the suffix "itis" denotes inflammation in the thyroid gland .It is most common cause of Hypothyroidism). Turmeric can be helpful in reducing whole body inflammation

Studies of the effect of curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric on the thyroid gland and autoimmunity have showed encouraging results.

Curcumin showed tumor inhibiting activity in thyroid cancer.

Curcumin was protective against the genetic damage and side effects induced by radioactive iodine that is sometimes used to treat Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism)

Curcumin has anti-inflammatory benefits that can be helpful in down-regulating autoimmune conditions

While curcumin can also boost glutathione (an antioxidant that's often depleted in Hashimoto's)

Use of turmeric helped in reducing pain , increase in energy , improvement in mood and an improvement in thyroid antibodies 

Daily intake of curcumin in a typical Indian diet may be anti-inflammatory, however, curcumin is cleared from the body within one hour or so
Combining curcumin with piperine, (found in pepper), extends the life of curcumin in the body, helping it to stick around longer. 

I also made Turmeric Tea (recipe below) twice per day

1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of ginger
pinch of pepper
pinch of cinnamon
juice of one lemon
sweetener to taste (Stevia is Dr.Tanvi’s  top recommendations)
1 cup of hot water

Directions: Put all ingredients in cup of your choice, top of with boiling water and mix!

Thank you for Reading it. I hope it will be helpful to you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood sugar levels are slightly higher. Ideally fasting should be 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. With present treatment you can achieve by adjusting your diet and exercising more every day. There may be no need to change the drugs. Take a close look at your diet, icrease daily exercise to more than 1 hour a day. That should help.

You need to increase medication for post meal sugar control. Alfa glucosidase inhibitors class of drugs like voglibose etc helps to control post meal sugars. Consult any diabetologist for adding them. Consume more complex carbohydrates and fibre in your diet so post meal sugar peaks will be less.

Mr wasim khan, looking at your weight and height, your bmi is 22.87 kg/m2 which is just normal. It is really excellent to have this kind of weight and height. I do not see any reason why one should think of increasing the weight. If your diabetes is under check, then this weight is fine. Please mention your fasting, pp levels and hba1c%, so that I may be able to guide.
