Hello doctor. I am 29 years old women. I am suffering from hyperthyroidism (interactive thyroid). I would like to know if I can have milk or curd in thyroid. If yes, what is the correct time to have it.

MBBS, MD, DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Indore
We have listed down some of the foods that would make for a healthy addition to a hyperthyroidism diet plan: 1 Eat small frequent meals. Choose meals which are little calorically dense so that your body has some extra reserves of energy after the body burns of the energy. Food stuffs high on calories does not comprise just oils and fats. Blend of all the food collections i.e. Milk, fats, cereal, pulse etc. 2 Also include thyroid-suppressing foodstuff in your diet plan. These consist of Broccoli, bajra, cauliflower, cabbage, soya products, rajma etc. 3 When you pick a foodstuff always make sure that it nourishes your body and not only provide you with unfilled calories. Therefore we suggest you to consume fruit juices, fruit, eggs, meats, nuts etc. 4 Do not replenish your belly with low calorie foodstuff like salads and veggies. 5 Consume foods which can stuff your belly. So you have to take in protein and 5-10gms of fats in every single major meal. 6 Eat food containing paneer. It gives satiety and stomach fullness for a longer time. 7 Consume home-produced sweets like custards, sheera, puddings etc. To give you additional calories which will avoid weight loss. 8 Eat food at systematic intermission. Don’t increase gaps between 2 meals. Meal gap should not be more than 2-3 hrs. 9 Do not keep a routine of consuming soups before your mealtimes. They have a tendency to give the feeling of fullness and saturation. 10 Avoid drinking water straightaway after your meals are done. It is also essential to keep replenishing the body with crucial minerals and vitamins. Thus you need to add multivitamin supplements to your diet plans. 11 Green tea for queries, and homeopathic medicines, contact us.

Do not go for medication blindly, consult your doctor regarding cupping therapy, diet therapy and aerobic exercises regarding mentioned complaints. Keep in mind only 20 percent medication role in dm, htn and remaining 80 percent diet and exercise, cupping therapy.

Diabetes And Its Effect On Your Eyes!

MBBS, MDRC (Diabetology), M.D.R.F.A.D.A
Diabetologist, Hyderabad
Diabetes And Its Effect On Your Eyes!

If you are diabetic, know that high blood pressure level can take a severe toll on your eyes in the form of blurry vision, cataract, glaucoma and retinopathy, if left unchecked. It can even lead to partial/complete blindness in young adults. Nonetheless, a strict control over your blood sugar count would prove effective in preventing such eye complications in the long run.

How does diabetes affect the eyes?

  1. Blurry Vision: Diabetes can cause swelling of the eye and damage to your vision. In case you are already using glasses, it might bring about fluctuations in your optical power. Once your blood sugar count gets back to the normal level; that is within the range of 70 to 130 milligrams per deciliter, your vision would be normal again; though this might take some time (about 3 months).

  2. Cataract: Eye lens works just like a camera, helping you to focus on a particular object. Cataract is a condition wherein this lens gets clouded with debris. Nevertheless, diabetic patients are more vulnerable to cataracts as compared to others. It has to be removed with a surgery wherein an artificial lens replaces the blurry eye lens.

  3. Glaucoma: Pressure starts building up within the eyes when fluids do not get drained out normally. This damages the nerves and blood vessels, thereby causing vision loss, blurred vision, watery eyes and headaches. Generally, glaucoma can be cured with laser, surgery, eye drops or medicines. Medications do help in alleviating eye pressure, reducing excessive fluid production and facilitating drainage. Having said that, diabetics are likely to develop neovascular glaucoma, a rare complication wherein new blood vessels form on the iris (the ring-shaped colored region in the eye), obstructing the normal fluid flow and further increasing the eye pressure.

  4. Diabetic Retinopathy: The retina is a cluster of cells behind the eyes that absorb light and converts them into images which are then transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. High blood sugar levels damage the tiny blood vessels of the retina, leading to a condition called Diabetic retinopathy.

The stages of diabetic retinopathy

The retina requires a constant blood supply via a network of small blood vessels. In due course of time, a high blood sugar count might damage those blood vessels; primarily across three stages:

  1. Background Retinopathy: This is a condition wherein tiny lumps develop in your blood vessels, causing slight bleeding that usually does not affect your eye sight.

  2. Pre-proliferative Retinopathy: This is a condition characterized by significant bleeding from the eyes as a result of the blood vessels being severely affected.

  3. Proliferative Retinopathy: Proliferative retinopathy is a condition wherein new blood vessels and scar tissues that bleed easily develop on the retina, leading to vision loss.

Are you at risk?

The risks of Diabetic retinopathy increase if one is suffering from diabetes. Apart from this, certain other factors could also aggravate the chances of this disorder:

  1. Rise or fall in blood sugar

  2. Rise in the blood pressure level

  3. High cholesterol

  4. Pregnancy

  5. Excessive consumption of tobacco

When should you call a doctor?

  1. When you experience spots in your vision

  2. In case of blurred and fluctuating vision

  3. Impaired color vision

  4. Sudden loss of vision

  5. Redness and pain in the eyes

These signs serve as an early wake up call. However, it’s not mandatory for these signs to indicate towards diabetic retinopathy.

How to protect your eyes from diabetes and keep them healthy?

  1. Get your eyes checked periodically and try and maintain a steady blood sugar count.

  2. Take the prescribed medicines on time.

  3. Try to achieve and then maintain optimal weight levels.

  4. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle and engage in some sort of physical activity.

  5. Control your cholesterol levels by picking the right kind of foods.

  6. Abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

  7. Opt for a healthy diet comprising of green and leafy vegetables, oily fish, tuna, salmon; protein rich foods such as beans, nuts and eggs; citrus fruits such as oranges; pork and oysters.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
