I am a hypothyroid person. Please suggest me some exercises and how to meditate? As I have never done these before.
Lybrate-user, meditation and exercise both are really good to maintain a good health. But it is equally important to control hypothyroidism effectively. For that you should maintain tsh levels between 3 to 4 mili units/l. Otherwise all the symptoms will not be in check. Exercising for 1 hour every day will help in maintaining a near normal weight, otherwise hypothyroidism will lead to increased weight. The best exercise to begin is brisk walking for 1 hour or more every day. A very simple and easy to do. Otherwise, if you are willing to do a bit more then better to join a gym and do various aerobic activities and strength building exercises under the guidance of a qualified professional instructor. This will help you get a real hang exercise and you will enjoy. As regards meditation, there are many methods which are advocated. One way is to sit in a comfortable chair taking full support to your thighs, using the full width and depth of the chair, then concentrating your gaze on an object at 45 degrees in front of you, taking 6 deep breaths and then closing your eyes. Then instructing your self that your whole body beginning with scalp is relaxing completely, reaching slowly down to the toes. Once you do this say to your self that" I have relaxed completely, every single cell, every muscle, bone and joint everything has relaxed. I am feeling wonderful. I am enjoying this lovely feeling of relaxation. You may imagine or visualise about a beautiful place that you have visited, bring it right in front of your eyes, feel you are there. Stay in that mood for over 10 to 15 minutes or longer. While being in this situation give some positive instructions/ suggestions to yourself about what you want to do, or objectives, goal, immediate and future ones. Say to your self, that your going to succeed. Just enjoy that lovely feeling of relaxation. Say you are healthy, you will over come the problems that you face including hypothyroidism. Will have great success in life. Then after a stipulated time count 1 to 6 and open your eyes. This is one way of relaxing or meditating. There other ways like spiritual meditation. Try any thing that suits you. All the best. Thanks.

I have a thyroid patient and I have a lot of pain in my joints can you tell me what I have to do it.

I have a thyroid patient and I have a lot of pain in my joints can you tell me what I have to do it.
When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg(s) elevated. Do this a few times a day. Note: Do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite. 2. Massage -- Massage promotes faster recovery from muscle damage that causes leg pain. 10 minutes of massage therapy attenuates inflammatory signaling after exercise-induced muscle damage. In addition, massage improves blood circulation and helps relieve stress and anxiety. Rub some warm olive, coconut or mustard oil on the affected area. Using gentle yet firm strokes, massage your legs for about 10 minutes. Do this 2 or 3 times daily as needed. You can also use a self-massage device or apply pressure to sore muscles using a tennis ball.

How to prevent hereditary diabetes in adults from age 35-45 years?
Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

You can star with metformin to begin with 500 mg twice a day then check sugar levels. Also avoid direct sugar and sweets. It is good if you can walk abreast half hour every day.

Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.
