She is suffering from thyroid & her weight increases as due to water in her body.what to do
Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

I am having Type 2 diabetes from the last one year. Sugar consumption is prohibited in diabetic people. Is consumption of jaggery (gud) also prohibited? Fruits also contains sugar. So are fruits also not to be consumed by diabetic people? My feet are getting black patches. Is it because of diabetes?

Mr. lybrate-user, Sugar and jaggery are both made form cane sugar juice. So there is hardly any difference between those two. Jaggeruy is supposed to contain some more minerals and vitamins. But both are sucrose, which is immediately converted to glucose in the body increasing the blood glucose almost instantly. Various types of food that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, sweet potato, corn and many other food stuffs all contain starch, this is ultimately converted to glucose in the intestine. However, it takes over 3 to 4 hours for this process to be completed. So the blood glucose rise is comparatively slow. Even with most fruits the main sugar is fructose, it is different from glucose. Certain fruits are high in sugar like banana, mango, grapes & chikkoo. Those should be eaten very occasionally or just a small piece. Thanks.

How often should I visit you for checkups in order to stay as healthy as possible and avoid diabetic complications?

Mr. Lybrate-user, visiting a doctor often is not required, what is needed is to follow instructions and treatment advised by him. For a diabetes patient following few things are important: 1) take all the prescribed drugs reguarly as advised, do not stop or change on your own or listening to unprofessional advise. 2) take restricted diet again as advised by the physician, in diabetes the dictum is" no feasting or no fasting" 3) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 ga day). 4) always use whole grain products, do not use refined flours, highly processed foods, junk foods, sweets, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. 5) avoid alcohol and smoking 6) exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walk is a good option. Joining a gym also is good. Plus a periodic check up of blood sugar is necessary. If you have t1 diabetes then insulin is the only option in such a situation blood glucose testing is to be done more often. Initially vists to doctor may be more often.

TSH 27 is definitely high and is suggestive of hypothyroidism for which you need to take thyroid hormone inthe form of tablet as advised by your physician. You can continue Inj Vitcofol as per advise oh you doctor.

The drugs being taken are definitely good ones. But what is important is how well your blood glucose is controlled. Well controlled diabetes should have fasting glucose closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg / 100 ml & hba1c% <6.8. If you maintain these level then long term complications can be prevented or postponed. As regards specific diet plan I need to know all the above details plus present dietary intake and extent of exercise being done daily. However, following few guidelines can be adhered to - avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Always use whole grain products and whole grain flour. Avoid maida and foods made out of it. Refrain from alcohol and smoking.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

First get your heart rate checked by someone else at absolute rest without smoking or preceding exercise or tea or coffee. You cannot check it yourself. Same thing holds good for b. P. Patient gets anxious while recording his own parameters and that itself will raise the pulse and b. P. If someone else examines and gets the same findings, then do the following. Please get a thyroid function test and cardiac evaluation. If both are normal, then consider changing minipress to another anti-hypertensive and do regular exercise.

Hi, am 31 years old. I recently had a general health check up. All results were normal except my sugar cholesterol levels. Fasting sugar was 103 and post meal sugar was 126. I remember I had taken too much sugary beverages around 9 hours before the test. Could that have an effect on the examination? And generally am I diabetic? On the other hand, my LDL cholesterol level was 124. Please advice what to do to reduce my cholesterol and sugar levels. Am really stressed!

Lybrate-user, blood glucose 102 mg/100 ml, is normal level. Fasting 70 to 110 mg, pp up to 140 mg hba1c% 5.9 are all normal levels. Fasting 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg, hba1c% 5.9 to 6.4, these are all pre - diabetes levels. Fasting equal to or above 126 mg, pp equal to or above 200 mg and hba1c% equal and above 6.5 % are all confirming diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if he has diabetes mellitus, then treatment has to be taken daily for life time. Hum har rose khate hai, uska glucose banata hai, us glucose ko khoon se nikal kar shareer ke alag bahgome bhejane ke liye insulin ki jaroorat hoti hai. Diabetes ki dava yeh insulin tayar karane ke liye madad karati hai, ya insulin hi diya jata hai. Jab khana rose chahiye to dava ki bhi jaroorat hai. Ye silsila jeevan bhar chalata rahega. Dava na lenese taklif badhegi, dava se nahi.

Things To Know About Hyperthyroidism

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Things To Know About Hyperthyroidism

The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland which is present in the neck and is formed of two interconnected lobes. The gland is located at the frontal portion of the neck and is responsible for secretion of thyroid hormones which affect metabolism, synthesis of protein and the overall development of a person. The thyroid is also responsible for the secretion of calcitonin which is responsible for calcium homeostasis (regulation of calcium levels).

The problems in the gland can range from goitre (enlargement of the thyroid gland) to cancerous growth in the gland.

Here are a few factors which cause Hyperthyroidism (over-production of thyroid hormones):

  1. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: This particular inflammatory disease is considered to be the biggest cause of hyperthyroidism. It can be genetic or caused due to certain types of bacteria and viruses.

  2. Radiation Therapies: The radiation therapies performed in and around the neck can affect the production of the thyroid hormone.

  3. Medications: Certain medicines contain lithium which can affect the thyroid gland and lead to this condition.

  4. Postpartum Hypothyroidism: Some women contract this condition post-pregnancy as their bodies start producing antibodies which go against the gland itself. This puts the foetus at risk.

  5. Pituitary Disorders: The pituitary gland might fail to produce enough thyroid-stimulating hormone which can result in the development of benign tumour, which can be a cause for hyperthyroidism.

Listed below are a few symptoms of hyperthyroidism:

  1. Sudden weight gain

  2. Increased blood cholesterol level

  3. Irregular menstrual cycles

  4. Impaired memory

  5. Dry skin and puffiness in the face

  6. Slower heart rate

  7. Muscle aches

  8. Extreme fatigue

Listed below are a few treatments for people suffering from the malfunctioning of the thyroid gland:

  1. Conventional medication: Thyroid problems can usually be treated by using conventional medicines which aim at cleansing the system and restoring immune function. Certain medicines also balance the release of thyroid hormones.

  2. Increased intake of glutathione: Glutathione is a strong antioxidant which can fight Hashimoto’s condition as it boosts the immune system and helps in getting rid of inflammations. Certain food items help your body in producing glutathione. Foods such as peaches, avocados, broccoli and cabbage can help in replenishing the depleted glutathione levels in your body. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.
