Thyroid is an organ which produces hormones. Hormones are internal substances which are produced by the body. They are produced by the signalling mechanism and the only thing that is required for maintaining proper thyroid hormone level is iodine. As per government guidelines, all salt in india is iodised. This is to ensure that people are never iodine deficient. So the only dietary recommendation is to take iodised salt.

Respected sir/madam, my age is 54 male. Recently I went for thyroid test. I went for t3, t4, and tsh. The report shows that my t3 levels are value of 22 ng/dl and the reference range they have given is 60 - 200, and t4 is <0.3 as against their reference range 4.5 - 12.0 and the tsh levels are > 150.00 as their reference range is 0.30 -5.5. And the comments given is hypo function. What is the medication suggested. The thyrocare people gave me thyronorm tablets of 50 mcg. And I am using the same tablets. Is it correct are will you suggest me any other medication. Please help me.

Hello , ou can control diabetes by having a medication prescribed by doctor. Its a degenerative disease inside from your body. But to completely get rid of diabetes, you should have a better control on your food habits. Along with your medication, if you take a proper diet of proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals these will work on your body hormonal balancing system once your harmon are working in a balancing way, slowing your degenerative diseases will be repaired and medication dosage will come down. Eventually you can continue diet without medication. Preparing your diet and nutrition chart doesn't much time, maximum half day. Let me know if I can help you with best nutrition. Get rid of diabetes will take time as this degeneration might happened from a long time, but we only come to know when you have a sympton out of it.

good news for coffee drinkers-

A major recent study showed that participants who increased their caffeinated coffee consumption by more than one cup per day of black coffee (or coffee with a small amount of milk and/or sugar) had an 11% lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared to those who made no changes in consumption. Those who lowered their daily coffee consumption by more than one cup had a 17% higher risk for diabetes.

While this is good news for coffee drinkers, a word of caution before you brew another pot: Some people are more sensitive to caffeine than others, but up to 400 mg of caffeine a day (about four cups of brewed coffee) appears to be safe for most healthy adults. Drinking more than four cups a day can have unpleasant side effects and may even shorten your life expectancy.

Actually, if you are diabetic, you should avoid any processed form of sugar. Be it sugar-free or relish. You can include jaggery in your diet for sweet effect.

I have diabetes type 2. Since past 10 years. My age is 45. And have been regularly taking medicine as prescribed by doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, both sugar levels look good. Testing by glucometer regularly for self monitoring is good enough. Usually it is said glucometer (calpillary blod) reading is slightly higher than venous blood reading by 11%. But now a days all glucometers are calibrated to give readings like the lab ones. Difference may be visible in pp readings if at all. Frequency of testing depends upon severity and drugs used. That is if insulin is used then almost every day testing is required. Sometimes even two or three times a day, to adjust insulin dosage and avoid hyper or hypoglycemia. Those on oral drugs if blood sugar levels are well controlled then testing once in two weeks or so may be required.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.
