You can take 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. 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 alcohl if you take. even any side effect you should take this medicines. ignore side effects.pl.

In many cases, simple changes in your diet like taking high fibre foods and lifestyle can provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome. Although your body may not respond immediately to these changes, your goal is to find long-term, not temporary, solutions. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Thank you for the query. As per the symptoms you have provided, your wife is probably suffering from a condition called diabetic neuropathy. It is a condition which causes nerve damage in diabetics. High blood sugar can injure nerve fibers throughout the body, but diabetic neuropathy commonly damages nerves in the legs and feet. This leads to tingling/numbness, burning sensation and pain in the feet and hands (gloves and stockings distribution). A nerve conduction velocity test confirms the diagnosis. Usually vitamin b12 supplements help. A number of other medications like gabapentin, duloxetine, pregabali are available for this condition, but they should not be given without consulting your physician, as they may cause sleepiness. Glycomet has metformin, which itself can lead to vitamin b12 deficiency. It is important that your wife takes adequate foot care, and note for any corns/callous or minor injuries, which need to be dealt with early in diabetics. Regards.

type 1 DM is auto immune and insulin dependent. insulin is the only available management. care should be taken that patient does not dehydrate or fast. take small meals every 2 to 3 hrs to avoid hypoglycemia. drink 3 litres of water minimum. avoid bananas, papaya, mango and other such high sugar content fruits. monitor sugar regularly and keep track that fasting sugar should range between 80 to 130. use insulin meticulously and judiciously.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have summed up the situation correctly that is bmi of 28 kg/m2 and sedentary life, these two are the main causes for a high blood sugar levels. Hba1c% 6.7 is good. However, if you really push yourself to exercise or walk every day for at least 1 hour, then you will notice things will change for the better. Your objective should be to cut just 5 to 8 % of current weight over next 6 months, that will make you feel extremely energetic, drug change or addition may be helpful, but lifestyle change is going to give a long term benefit. As regards the change of drugs or addition, you will have to come in a private conversation, where I can suggest an additional drug or a change. Reason being in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines. You must be aware that your ideal body weight should be 63 kgs. So please consider this. With regards.

take tab. thyroxin 150 mcg bbf. , cap. pantop dsr bbf. Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to a number of health problems: Goiter. Constant stimulation of your thyroid to release more hormones may cause the gland to become larger — a condition known as a goiter. Hashimoto thyroiditis is one of the most common causes of a goiter. Although generally not uncomfortable, a large goiter can affect your appearance and may interfere with swallowing or breathing. Heart problems. Hypothyroidism may also be associated with an increased risk of heart disease, primarily because high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol — the "bad" cholesterol — can occur in people with an underactive thyroid. Even subclinical hypothyroidism, a more benign condition than true hypothyroidism, can cause an increase in total cholesterol levels and impair the pumping ability of your heart. Hypothyroidism can also lead to an enlarged heart and heart failure. Mental health issues. Depression may occur early in hypothyroidism and may become more severe over time. Hypothyroidism can also cause slowed mental functioning. Peripheral neuropathy. Long-term uncontrolled hypothyroidism can cause damage to your peripheral nerves — the nerves that carry information from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body, for example your arms and legs. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy may include pain, numbness and tingling in the area affected by the nerve damage. It may also cause muscle weakness or loss of muscle control. Myxedema. This rare, life-threatening condition is the result of long-term, undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Its signs and symptoms include intense cold intolerance and drowsiness followed by profound lethargy and unconsciousness. A myxedema coma may be triggered by sedatives, infection or other stress on your body. If you have signs or symptoms of myxedema, you need immediate emergency medical treatment. Infertility. Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the causes of hypothyroidism — such as autoimmune disorder — also impair fertility. Treating hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement therapy may not fully restore fertility. Other interventions may be needed, as well. Birth defects. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disease may have a higher risk of birth defects than may babies born to healthy mothers. These children are also more prone to serious intellectual and developmental problems. Infants with untreated hypothyroidism present at birth are at risk of serious problems with both physical and mental development. But if this condition is diagnosed within the first few months of life, the chances of normal development are excellent.

If fasting and PP blood sugar is normal with Hb1Ac -7, do I need treatment or dietary control is enough.

If fasting and PP blood sugar is normal with Hb1Ac -7, do I need treatment or dietary control is enough.
Your hba1c is in a diabetic range. For non diabetic it should be less than 5.7. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. After doing this for around 2-3 months recheck your hba1c, fbs and ppbs.

Yes, you are suffering from diabetes as your blood sugar levels are high. Change your life style with avoiding high calorie food and drinks. Take small frequent meals and avoid junk food. Daily exercise and weight loss a good idea to follow. Monitor your blood sugar levels regularly and do a hba1c test. If still not controlled then you may have to start medicines. Please revert back with reports asap.
