Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting blood glucose of 220 mg is too high. Which means there is uncontrolled diabetes. To treat diabetes specific modern medicines are needed. Ayurveduc drugs are not at all effective on their own. Those can be taken as supportive medications. A lot of false claims are made by many people and even drug companies and on TV channels. If you want correct blood glucose control and prevent serious long term complications of diabetes, then start treatment with modern drugs. Plus there has to be diet restriction and regular physical exercise. Diabetes occurs (T2) because of either Insulin deficiency or resistance to its action or both. Plus inactivity and over weight increase the problem. Since Insulin is needed every day for metabolic action, treatment has to be for lifetime. Thanks.

A few patients have enquired about the 1st line of drug for Type 2 diabetes. Usually, Metformin is the first drug to be given in non-pregnant Type 2 Diabetes, along with advice on diet changes, exercises & lifestyle modifications (quit smoking, quit or reduce alcohol, etc). But in a few patients, Insulin might be used as 1st line. But even in such patients, Metformin is given along with Insulin.

Diet to Lower Triglycerides

The purpose of this is to present, to all who want the knowledge, a safe and dependable method through which individuals can lower their elevated blood triglyceride levels. When it comes to health care, you need to stay alert, ask questions, and ultimately rely on yourself for important health care decisions. By applying these guidelines, you will be able to take control of your health care, just as we all should do. You can achieve astonishing results - if you put your mind to it. By having the whole page printed, you can read it in a nice easy chair, away from that glaring monitor.
No miracle cure is needed to reduce triglycerides. Unlike lowering cholesterol - 80 percent of cholesterol is manufactured by the body - for most people, lowering blood triglycerides is as simple as

cutting back on sweets and
getting off the couch.
Excessive sugar intake is no longer about expanding waistlines and tooth decay only. It is a common way to boost blood triglyceride levels.

So it comes back to that old litany - a healthful lifestyle consisting of a good balance of:

dietary low-sugar intake
exercise to maintain an optimal body weight
no smoking, and
moderation of alcohol intake.
It is the same standard treatment recommended at doctor's office for individuals with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other health concerns. However, the majority of people still remain confused about the most effective way to normalize blood lipid levels.

As a matter of fact, we can't seem to adapt ourselves to all those "dietary and lifestyle plans" for the long haul. We all seem to wait for the Holy Grail of diet and lifestyle to be found.

Definitely, when it comes to triglycerides, foods have a direct impact on their blood levels. What we eat does affect our serum lipids. We don't need new triglyceride-lowering drugs.

For the majority of people, the first line of any treatment for high triglycerides should be a change in diet and, eventually, in lifestyle. But deciding which "diet" to choose is not an easy task, especially for those who have little time for meals. Since triglycerides are circulating forms of fat in the blood, you might think that

a high-fat diet will raise your triglycerides and
a low-fat diet would lower your triglycerides.
This belief turned out not to be true. According to the recent evidence, the most important dietary predictor of triglycerides appears to be carbohydrates, namely,

sugars
starches and
refined (processed) grains.
In other words, what leads to increase in blood triglycerides are mainly diets high in carbohydrates, especially sugar (American Association for Clinical Chemistry).

In fact, the effects of high carbohydrate diet on the triglyceride synthesis by the liver - the major source of blood triglycerides exclusive of chylomicrons - have been known for a long time (J Clin Invest. 1968 April; 47 (4): 712–719).
Avoid Triglyceride Blasters I: Basic Eating Plan

The amount of food you should be eating is about the size of your fist per meal.
Within the diet itself, sugar and alcohol have the greatest influence on triglycerides. Therefore, when it comes to lowering your blood triglycerides, you should:

ELIMINATE or AVOID:

High Triglycerides: Sugars Increase Triglyceride Levels ALL sugars such as:
concentrated sweets: table sugar (sucrose), cane sugar, brown sugar, Turbinado sugar, Demerara sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrups (especially high fructose corn syrup as a substitute sweetener for sucrose-table sugar added to fruit juices, sodas, and other beverages), preserves, molasses, jams, jellies, and candies
desserts-baked goods: pies, cakes, cookies, crackers, frosting, pastries, doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and regular or sweetened gelatin
beverages: fruit juices, fruit drinks, fruit punches, regular sodas, carbonated pop, colas, aid drinks, smoothies, sports drinks, sweetened coffee drinks, mocha, and chocolate drinks
Triglyceride Reducing Diet: Avoid high-fructose fruit - dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes, pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruit, watermelon, plums, honeydew melon, grapefruit, orange and pineapple high-fructose, sweet fruits (both fresh or dried): especially dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes (red and green), pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruits, watermelons, plums, honeydew melons, grapefruits, oranges and pineapples
other foods: sweetened cereals, flavored yogurts, and sports or energy bars
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Alcohol Alcohol such as
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Beer beer
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Wine wine
hard liquor
liqueurs (usually sweetened alcoholic liquors) and cordials.
PLEASE NOTE: A reduction of alcohol intake is crucial in keeping triglycerides in check - just one drink can increase triglycerides in susceptible people. If you have elevated triglycerides and consume alcohol - a reduced intake or not drinking alcohol at all is strongly advised.

LIMIT:

Triglyceride reducing diet: Limit low-fructose fruit: apricot, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupe, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries low-fructose fruits, such as apricots, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupes, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries
Limit Commercially Raised Beef - The Dangers Posed to Our Health commercially raised red meat, especially fried, charbroiled and barbecued, and changing it to broiled or roasted poultry (turkey, chicken), preferably free-range.
ADD:


dark green leafy and cruciferous vegetables.
By all means, this is NOT another deprivation diet! Although the food "restrictions" advised to help you lower triglycerides may seem hard, it is heartening to realize you can achieve astonishing results without the risky drugs most conventional doctors recommend - if you put your mind to it.

However, after your triglyceride level goes back to normal, you should follow a modified sugar and alcohol diet for the rest of your life.

Since your T4 and TSH are normal, and you are clinically feeling well, it is most likely that the T3 report is wrong. No need to worry. Avoid doing T3 on a routine basis. Just TSH is good enough 3-6 monthly for follow up of hypothyroidism.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify what do you mean by "she has thyroid 21 point" There is no mention about what this value is about. It is better if you write what it is like TSH, T4 & T3 etc. By just saying 21 points nothing is clear. Probably she has hypothyroidism and may need treatment with thyroxine tablets. Please do come back.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In diabetes peripheral neuropathy is a common occurrence, causing either burning or tingling and numbness in feet and legs. To reduce that you need to achieve strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Therefore, apart from appropriate medication, it is necessary to take restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight (62 kgs), extent of physical activity and blood glucose levels. Plus if need be certain medication like Methylcobalamine and / or pragabalin may be beneficial. Thanks.
