Dear lybrate-user, All these symptoms happens in hypothyroidism. Get your thyroid test done and take supplement. You can start daily exercise and drink at least 3 to 4 L of water per day. Nothing to worry as proper thyroid supplement will improve your condition. All d best!

Mr. Lybrate-user, fruits which are very sweet or excess in sugar are mango, grapes, banana and chikkoos. Rest of the the fruits are good but only 100 g a day, that too when blood sugar is - fasting around 100 mg and pp 160 mg or so. Thanks.

Sir
I am under weight and suffering from hyperthyroidism. TSH-7.80
What should I do?
Hi, for increasing body weight, start eating more chapatis and rice with ghee or butter. Take creamed milk upto 400 ml daily. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, take pulses and pulses products. You can eat homemade fried foods but avoid eating from the market. If you eat non-veg then eat 2 to 3 pcs. Of egg or fish thrice a week. Also take 4 to 6 pcs. Of almonds or cashew nuts or some raisins. Must take exercise daily as it helps in better absorption of food and also increases your satiety.

Probably your diet is not proper.you need to reschedule your timings and control on the portion size of food.take small frequent meals with a watch on the carbohydrate content of the meal.u need to meet a Dietician for the same. If the diet is unable to control the sugars,then medicine may become necessary

Take moderate carbohydrate, moderate protein, low fat diet. Take a cup of green tea in the morning and evening. Avoid eating fried foods, junk foods, milk products like cheese, khoa, sugar etc. Also do not take creamed milk rather take skimmed milk. Eat less chapatis, less rice, more pulses and pulses products, fresh fruits and vegetables. Must take exercises daily.

Hye, thanks for the query. Usually in hyperthyroidism your metabolism is much more than normal and hence your nutrient needs are very high. When your eating habits are poor or not enough it can cause drastic weight loss. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

If the medicines you take for controlling your diabetes are working, then your blood sugar levels will always be in range. That is the most accurate way of knowing

Few diet tips - not to eat fried food items and can eat all green vegetables, moong, chana, dal, rice etc and to apply ghee over chappati and don't apply oil over chappati and to drink milk mixed with turmeric powder twice a day and if possible eat eggs on alternate days and if possible in breakfast eat atleast one bajra ka rotla and eat seasonal fruit and in my opinion you can eat spinach.

give your wife 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.

I have given my blood to pharmacy for a self aware thyroid test. Now reports came and in that Serum T3 and Serum T4 is between range but Serum TSH is 28.16 Micro IU/ML, which has to be between 0.3 to 5, Kindly suggest me whether m I suffering from Thyroid? If yes then its in starting stage, medium stage or critical stage. Kindly suggest me what food and medicines to be taken to cure it as per my report. Already 8 months passed away of my normal delivery.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSh value of 28.16 mU/L, there is a fairly severe hypothyroidism. This needs to be controlled, urgently with the appropriate dose of levothyrooxine daily. The treatment has to be for the lifetime. When on treatment, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Dosage has to be decided on the basis of weight, height and TSH & T4 levels. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. If treatment is not initiated then a considerable problems will be faced, including irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, cold intolerance, hair fall, muscle and joint pains, anxiety and swelling of face and lower limbs. Later after marriage, getting pregnant also becomes difficult. Thanks.
