Dear, you are suffering from 7-8 years, so, fasting, pp, and even hba1c is also must to know how much is under control. Your bmi is about 27.1. So reduce your weight to 74 kg. By exercise particularly aerobic and if possible by resistant exercise also. Have a good diet of low fat, low carbs. You are also advised for other blood reports, like s. Creatinine, sgpt, lipid profile, urine microalbumin, and urine routine. Then contact me. Try best to avoid complication.

There are 2 issues here. Either your Thyroid tablet dose is inadequate or if you are taking your Thyroid & calcium tablets together then it will reduce the effect of your Thyroid tablet. Make sure that your calcium is taken in the afternoon or evening so that it does not interfere with your Thyroid tablet absorption. This is also the case with iron. So make sure that all these tablets are taken at different times to avoid any interference in absorption.

Hi, Kindly maintain good sugar control through proper medication n diet. Here a few tips. Maintain food timing. Use fiber rich food such as whole cereals, pulses, leafy vegetables, n vegetables that grows above the ground. Use multigrain atta. Include 50g/day of fruits. Drink plenty of water. Walk for 30 min/day. Avoid sweets, sugar, Jaggery, honey, oily stuff n junk food. Go for a balanced meal. Moderation is the key for diabetics. Do not fast, do not feast. Regards, Uma.

I have a question that a patient with diabetes having stroke what is the connection between diabetes n stroke?

I have a question that a patient with diabetes having stroke what is the connection between diabetes n stroke?
Our bodies need a hormone called insulin to turn sugar (from our food) into energy. If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not produce insulin. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin. This means your body has difficulty absorbing the sugars from food. If diabetes is left untreated or uncontrolled it increases the risk of vascular disease (disease of the blood vessels). This is when your artery walls become hard and narrow. This increases the risk of stroke, particularly ischaemic stroke. People with diabetes are also more likely to have high blood pressure. This can also increase your risk of further strokes. If you have diabetes it is important to maintain healthy blood sugar levels to reduce your risk of having a stroke or second stroke.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are suffering from abdominal obesity. You should understand that abdominal fat is first to come and last to go. It is advisable if you can continue with your abdominal muscle strengthening exercises. Have some patience it will go. Hope this solves your query. Any more concern then kindly feel free to revert.

lybrate-user, Your TSH value has come to normal because of the treatment with thyroxine 25 mcg, tablet being taken. If it is stopped TSH level will again go up and from earlier sub-clinical situation it may go on to become a definite hypothyroidism. Hence, treatment has to be continued. Actually on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Thanks.

Hi I just got to know that I have thyroid. Cn you please help me to understand what I can eat and what can not.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. Hope this helps
