How do I lose weight it been increasing because of thyroid so what need I need to do?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
How do I lose weight it been increasing because of thyroid so what need I need to do?
Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

Fasting for 14 hours will built up acidity in your stomach. So when trying to break the fast take bland food devoid of spices and acid content (even fruits). Regarding liquids many juices, aerated drinks and health drinks can worsen acidity and induce gastric or small intestinal spasm, so preferable with be milk, that too after a bland diet.

Post lunch less than 140 mg and hba1c less than 5.7 % rules out diabetes. Hba1c between 5.7 % and less than 6.4% confirms prediabetes and hba1cmore than 6.4 confirms diabetes. Low fat, low carbohydrate, high protein, high fiber diet with regular 45 minuets walking/exercise/sports activity may help preventing diabetes. Avoid direct sugar or jeggary in day to day diet.

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
What one should eat when he is having blood sugar of 182 fasting with insulin.
blood sugar fasting 182 is high level, n you should take care about it. If the insulin is not working then you may be suffering from insulin resistance. First thing I would like to advice is diet control and regular exercises. Second thing is you may start with some ayurvedic treatment which may reduce insulin resistance. If you r interested to take ayurvedic treatment, you may consult me.
