Its not cure completely and its comes with normal when medicines r continue. Some home remedies the thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the center of the neck, which makes thyroid hormones. Although relatively small, it is considered the master gland of metabolism and plays a key role in the functioning of many important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin. For your body? s overall health, it is essential for the thyroid gland to stay healthy and function properly. Thyroid problems are common and include hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goiters, thyroid nodules, thyroiditis and thyroid cancer. Of these, hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) are the most common and can cause many hormonal, emotional and physical changes in the body ginger is a good source of zinc, magnesium and potassium, and its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help improve thyroid functioning? fresh ginger root slices can be added to soups and other dishes? another option is to drink a two or three cups of hot ginger tea. To make this herbal tea, add some fresh ginger slices to a cup of boiling water. Steep for five minutes, and then add some honey to it. Any queries inform me.

Hi Sir

Mr. Lybrate-user, first let me clarify that eating sweets does not cause worms in the intestine. Worms such as round worm (big long ones), hook worm, pin worm all occur because of contaminated water or food containing their eggs goes in our intestine and then those eggs get converted to adult worms. Eating unclean food, roadside eating, drinking unfiltered water, unhygienic habits are the cause for most worm infections, the symptom now experienced is mostly due to pin worm (enterobious vermicularis). There are specific drugs which can eradicate them, but these are some of the toughest worms do eradicate.

Your one value is a bit high. Others are normal. So it is difficult to comment. You are not a diabetic. It may be an impaired glucose tolerance test. Which indicates early diabetes. But to be very sure repeat the test after 1 month.

Hi, to control sugars neither it is required to eat very less nor it is advisable. You should have your meals properly. The thing which is required is to practice healthy eating habits. Though diabetes can not be cured still sugar levels can be managed well if you follow proper diet, do regular physical activity and take medications if prescribed by your doctor. Apart from these monitoring your sugars regularly is also very important as it give you a fair idea of your present situation. Limit refined carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as soda, candy, packaged meals, and snack foods. Focus on high-fiber complex carbohydrates €”also known as slow-release carbs. Like whole cereals, whole pulses etc. Before taking your major meals always take a good quantity of fresh vegetable salads, it will help you to control sugars as well as will give you feeling of fullness too. For in between snacking take fruits, sprouts, roasted chana etc.

Hi I want to know about my high diabetics please tell me something how can I make a relief from diabetes.
Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs),& hba1c (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner.

My husband fasting blood sugar is 163 and post lunch blood sugar is 310 and last week he test the jaundice total bilirubin is 1.7 mg/do he use to drink bitter guard juice to control diabetes but it is effected to the jaundice I mean he can drink bitter guard juice or not I want clarity answer doctor.

Diabetes cases are on the rise. Healthy lifestyle changes can control diabetes. Certain foods that are packed with fiber, omega-3s, calcium and vitamin d can help you. Try these foods to get relief from diabetes.

Top foods to control diabetes

Beans: they contain soluble fiber and lean proteins. Beans help in burning body fat, they lower the cholesterol levels and stabilize blood-sugar levels. Hence go for beans!

Oats: they are high in soluble fiber which slows down the absorption process in the stomach. This will in turn keep the blood-sugar levels in control.

Tuna: an 85 g of tuna contains 1, 300 mg of omega-3s and vitamin d. But tuna has mercury hence limit your intake to 340 gm a week.

Yoghurt: low-fat yoghurt contains high-quality carbohydrates and proteins, both are best to control blood sugar levels. Research shows that 1, 200 mg of calcium and more than 800 iu of vitamin d a day cuts down the risk of diabetes by 33%. If possible opt for greek yoghurt since it contains more proteins than regular non-fat yoghurt.

Dates: dates have a sweet taste and delightful texture, which makes them a great snack. Seven dates contain 4 gm of fiber; hence they are perfect for controlling diabetes.

Spinach: it is low in calories and has low-impact on blood sugar. Hence spinach is great for controlling diabetes.

Wild salmon: it is packed with omega-3s and it contains healthy fats and proteins. Consumption of wild salmon will slow down the absorption of carbohydrates which will in turn control the blood sugar levels.

Egg whites: they are loaded with high-quality proteins and are low in carbohydrates. One large egg white consists of 16 calories and 4 gm of high-quality proteins. Hence they are ideal for controlling blood sugar levels.

Avocados: they are packed with monosaturated fats which are great to control blood sugar levels.

Flaxseeds: they contain omega-3s which lowers the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

If you suffer from diabetes, include the above foods in your diet. You will realise a decrease in the blood sugar levels.

Thyroid disorder and weight loss

Most of the time, underlying the thyroid disorder is years of abuse of our body.
When you don't take proper care of your own nutrition, sleep and invest time for proper exercise, at some point various hormonal systems of the body go out of sync.

It is very important to have your thyroid hormones as tablets as per your doctor's prescription and adjust the dose with a periodic check up. And just doing it may reduce your weight little bit. But it will not be enough. You need to work on the root cause of this issue.

Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat - low calorie diets does not work for the majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity.

Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8-minute workout.

Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future.

Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back in no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health.

Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment to your persistent efforts. Make a comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some expert who can help you in this over an extended period of time.
