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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

My fasting sugar is 130 and P. P 160 am I diabetic? I am already a BP patient.

MBBS
General Physician,
Fasting sugar more than 126 may indicate diabetes. But single reading would not tell us anything. Kindly repeat the reading two more times. Take the best of three readings. Fasting should be less than 126 and pp should be less than 200. In the mean time please avoid too much carbohydrate rich food like extra rice, and high fat content food, pizza, burgers, etc. Shift to roti, wheat based meals. And take small frequent meals daily rather than heavy meals at a single time. Kindly get back to me with reports.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon your blood reports.

Dear Lybrate User, *Take Giloya satva half spoon with a glass of water boil it for 7-8 minutes and drink in the morning and repeat the procedure at evening. To maintain proper blood glucose level you need following things to do- 1.Include more fibers in your diet. More soluble than insoluble. 2.Dont give food gap more than 2-3hrs between meals. 3.Drink min 2 ltrs of water during day time. Reduce water consumption after 6pm onwards. 4. Increase your protein intake specially veg proteins. 5.Do exercises regularly min for 1hrs min. 6.Increase your vegetables consumption. 7. Avoid simple sugar

What is the rightway to take hypothyroid medicine?

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
What is the rightway to take hypothyroid medicine?
Hello, we have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if he has diabetes and high uric acid, both conditions need to be treated with specific drugs. In addition to drugs, diet control and exercise also needed fro controlling blood sugar. As regards high uric acid (no details are given about uric acid level or sugar level and hba1c%), he should avoid high purine containing foods like organ meat, red meat, a number of fishes like sardines, salmon, herring, haddock, shell fish, scallops, mushrooms and mussels. High fat milk products, alcohol and sweetened aerated drinks. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and whole grain products. Thanks for the question.

Without altering your present regime of treatment, I want to your consent to start parallel herbal diabetes support formula. As you improve slowly, more changes can be seen. It's slow but effective. Pl start with drinking/ sipping cinnamon and Withania coagulans strain daily morning and evening. For further advise pl consult.

I am a 64 year old male. Am suffering from hypo thyroid and high blood pressure. Both are under control with normal medication. The latest problem is excessive sleep. I feel sleepy even after 10 hours of sleep. In fact I am sleepy the moment I wake up. The eyelids are heavy and I keep thinking when will I lie down again. Is it some kind of deficiency?

Dear, can you upload your latest tsh levels and how much thyroxine are you taking? I still think that it would be due to improper control of hypothyroidism.

Hello

consuming protein supplements is fine for a diabetic person. But most of the protein supplements contain a good amount of sugar in the preparation. That is not necessary. If you pick up a preparation free of carbohydrate then it is ideal.
