I have hypothyroid. I am told to take medicine (50 mcg) empty stomach in the morning and do not eat at least for further 45 min. But I have to eat within half an hour after waking up. So will it affect my health?
I recently detected thyroid with free t3 &t4 normal and tsh high. I have started thyroid tablet one tablet each morning and one of folic acid at night. I really have no symptoms of thyroid. But blood report showing it since 9 month. I have my weight around 93 kg. I am doing 30 min cycling since a month. And doing jim workout for 2 days a week. Do I need to worry for my weight which I think not I ration of WHO. It is showing that height vs weight ration for me is around 80 to85 kg. I have little bit stomach bt not excess fat to my body. So (1) do I really have to concentrate to loss body weight? (2) what type of food I should eat for losing it? (3) what type of procedure I can follow that this thyroid effect not affect me by any reason like it can't affect me for my metabolic system likewise.(4) if I want to go body building now after dan is it recommended for me? Thank you if you can help me out for all my queries

Are you a woman suffering from diabetes? Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which your blood sugar levels shoot up because of problems in the processing and production of insulin. Diabetes occurs in both men and women. However, there are some primary differences and contrasts between diabetes in men and in women.
The symptoms of diabetes in women are almost the same as those in men, except for some unique symptoms pertaining only to women, which include the following:
- Development of oral and vaginal yeast infections, along with vaginal thrush
- Urinary infections
- Sexual dysfunction
- Development of polycystic ovary syndrome
The common, general symptoms found in both men and women include a frequent urge for urination, enhanced hunger and thirst, fatigue, blurry vision, and sudden gain or loss of weight without obvious causes. Skin infections, irritability, nausea, darkening of skin in patches, a reduced feeling in the hands and feet are other general symptoms.
Diabetes and pregnancy
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
If you are pregnant and have diabetes, you should consult your doctor to know about the best ways of managing your health, and the health of your baby. It is important to track down your blood glucose levels before and during your pregnancy. While you are pregnant, glucose and ketones reach your baby via the placenta, and the baby utilizes this as energy. As such, too high glucose levels may leave your baby at risk.
This form of diabetes occurs in 9% of pregnancies in which the pregnancy hormones interfere with how insulin works. This results in the body making more insulin. In some women, the insulin produced is not enough and therefore, gestational diabetes develops.
Women are more prone to diabetes when the following factors are present:
- If you are above the age of 45
- If you are obese and have a family history of diabetes
- If you gave birth to a baby who weighed more than nine pounds
- If you have hypertension or high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
- If you are not into any form of exercise
- If you suffer from other health conditions, which are linked with insulin problems like PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome, or are having a history of stroke and heart diseases
There are certain prominent differences between diabetes occurring in men and women. Women receive less aggressive treatment for other conditions associated with diabetes. The complications caused in women because of diabetes are more challenging to diagnose properly. Moreover, the hormones and inflammation also work differently in the case of women. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
