You are taking right treatment, keep sugar levels in normal range, exercise moderately , simple walks are best but due to outside high pollution levels , some people do exercise on cycle at home because pollution is as bad as smoking 10 cigarettes/day.

How to avoid having thyroid if you have a tendency to have it? And if you have little thyroid at the starting level how to cure it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, if there is family history of hypothyroidism, it may occur in the offspring also. There is no specific method to avoid it from developing. However, using iodinated salt regularly so as to prevent deficiency of iodine leading to development of hypothyroidism, is one method. Secondly it is better to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, avoid maida and products made out of it. Plus use low fat milk products and eggs. Plus exercise regularly to maintain normal weight. If sub clinical hypothyroidism develops then also above measures hold good. Hypothyroidism being a thyroxine deficiency disorder, there is no cure, it can only be controlled when it does occur. If it occurs then treatment is for lifetime. Thanks.

I am suffering from sugar please tell me some preventions and precaution to take?
Be on a strict diabetic diet. Avoid direct sugars. Use sugar free tablets instead of sugar. Take medicines regularly according to the advice of your doctor, get your blood and urine examined for sugar every month. Use soft mcr chappals while walking. Take utmost care of your foot and eyes, go for an eye checkup once in a year. Go for a walk everyday for about 1hr. All these will help you to keep your sugar level under control.
