My mom is suffering from thyroid so please can anyone suggest what precautions can my mom take so that it can be cured.

Endocrinologist, Indore
Hi, I advice her to take a healthy diet with lots of vegetables n salads. If she's overweight than she should try to reduce weight. Stopping medicines for thyroid may not be possible but can be reduced slowly then if possible can be stopped.

Hi I suggest you continue to check your blood sugars frequently with exercise and diet. Your 3 months average blood sugar will tell me how your blood sugars have been in the last 3 months. Less than 7% suggests dose reduction. But if it is around 6.5% and less than that and remains that way persistently with exercise and diet alone then we can stop the medicine. In this case You are probably into something called honeymoon phase of diabetes where in your blood sugars will be normal without medications but keep a watch as slowly they'll creep back.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- 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. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Hypothyroidism causes increase in weight, lethargy, weakness, swelling of feet and face, increased size of the gland, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, sluggishness, speech may get affected etc. Any way it is better to get your thyroid assay done, which will reveal if there is any problem.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Let me tell you there are very few orthopaedic conditions that can lead to swelling in your feet region. Both of you are advised to see a physician and get your lft, kft, thyroid tests, cardiac check ups done as all these conditions can commonly lead to swelling. Also your protein levels in body is important, because if that goes down, then it can lead to generalised swelling. Also sometimes swelling can actually happen in vascular issues as well, so consult these dotors as advised. In orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions, generally such swellings can take place after injuries, infections, chronic inflammatory conditions etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

How to overcome thyroid problems because it may cause severe problems to our health because I need to know how it will get cured my girlfriend has can you please help me in overcoming?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello" thyroid problems" is rather unclear. Thyroid is the normal gland in us, it produced thyroxine hormone, essential for brain development and functioning. Plus essential for all metabolic activities of the body. There can be hypothyroidism, where deficiency of thyroxine occurs, leading to weight gain, swelling of face, legs, feet, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, menstrual irregularities, difficulty iin conception, improper fetal development, miscarriage, anxiety and depression. Similarly hyperthyroidism where there is excess of thyroid activity, leading to weight loss, rapid heart rate, protruding eyes, trembling feeling, palpitations, anxiety etc. Both these conditions are well controlled by appropriate treatment. Low iodine in water, and diet can lead to hypothyroidism. That is why iodinated salt has to be used. Still of late cases of hypothyroidism have increased a lot. Another disease is hashimoto's thyroiditis, which also causes hypothyroidism. These can be well controlled, but there is no cure. In case of hyperthyroidism some times thyroid gland is removed, then hypothyroidism develops. In any case treatment usually for lifetime.

My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?

My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?
Diabetes is an imbalance of carbohydrate metabolism. Blood sugar depends on what you eat, at what time n in how much quantity. So a controlled n calculated carbohydrate intake is utmost important. So is d type of carbohydrate. Ie simple or complex. Exercise improves d functioning capacity of insulin. So regular physical activity, advised by your dr, in accordance to the cardiac status etc, is a must. But simple things like avoiding to sit / lie down immediately post meals, n having a stroll post meals go a long way to control post meal blood sugars. Stay healthy, stay blessed.

Mr. M s sodhi, you have mentioned fasting sugar level as 130 - 180 mg, which appears pretty high. What is the recent pp level? hba1c% looks good. When does the sugar level go down is there a specific pattern or time of the day? your lipid profile details are not given fully. Important ones are total cholesterol, hdl, ldl and triglyceride, you have not mentioned those. Tsh level is also high, it should be below 5 mill units / ml. Are you taking any medications for hypothyroidism and dyslipidemia? plus also let me know your dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can give specific suggestions.
