The usage of thyroid tablet daily morning on empty stomach is that necessary how long can I use?
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Treatment for hypothyroidism is for lifetime. The recommended dose needs to be taken on empty stomach as it's absorption is affected if taken after some thing. Plus after taking the tablet nothing should be taken for at least 1 to 1 and half hour. Thanks.

Hi. Good morning. What can be done to reduce hypothyroid? Please suggest some ways or remedies to reduce it

Hi. Good morning. What can be done to reduce hypothyroid? Please suggest some ways or remedies to reduce it
Making dietary changes is your first line of defense in treating hypothyroidism. 1. Greatly reduce or eliminate caffeine and sugar, including refined carbohydrates like flour, which the body treats like sugar. 2. Up the protein - Protein transports thyroid hormone to all your tissues and enjoying it at each meal can help normalize thyroid function. Proteins include nuts and nut butters; hormone- and antibiotic-free animal products and legumes. 3. Get fat - Fat is your friend and cholesterol is the precursor to hormonal pathways; if you’re getting insufficient fat and cholesterol, you could be exacerbating hormonal imbalance, which includes thyroid hormones. Natural, healthful fats include olive oil; ghee; avocados; flax seeds; fish; nuts and nut butters; hormone- and antibiotic-free full fat cheese, yogurt, and cottage cheese (yes, full fat, not skim); and coconut milk products 4. Nutrient-up - While nutritional deficiencies may not be the cause of hypothyroidism, not having enough of these micronutrients and minerals can aggravate symptoms: vitamin D, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, zinc, copper, vitamin A, the B vitamins, and iodine 5. Go gluten-free - The molecular composition of thyroid tissue is almost identical to that of gluten. So for those with Hashimoto’s, it’s a case of mistaken identity. Eating gluten can increase the autoimmune attack on your thyroid. 6. Be mindful of goitrogens - goitrogens are foods that can interfere with thyroid function. Goitrogens include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, strawberries, peaches, peanuts, radishes, and soybeans 7. Look at your stressors and practice relaxation. The thyroid is a very sensitive gland and is exceptionally reactive to the stress response. Besides this, do work out and if you want homeopathic medicine, then do contact us.

For 26 year old female with 5.6 feet, the size of both kidneys are sub 8 cm. Which is quite abnormal. I would suggest you to do usg to rule out any obstructive cause for that. If nothing obstruction was there means, get detailed renal function tests with serum electrolytes.

You are taking trimetazine which is typically given in the management of angina or ischemic heart disease. Either your af is due to an ischemic episode some time back or due to thyroid. Please consult with all your reports as well as medications and ecg with ii long lead. Atrial fibrillation has some other problems too mainly pertaining to clots getting formed in the atria. Ideally there are drugs available for the management of the af which can be given and there are some minimal invasive surgical procedures too. Best of luck.

Sugar - Can You Control Your Intake?

Sugar - Can You Control Your Intake?

Sugar (cane sugar) is not only a big industry but has been a part of many of our traditional foods. Somehow, today sugar has been given a tag of being an 'unhealthy' food. What we don't realize before we demonize a food the reason for it to suddenly become unhealthy. Sugar in small required amounts does not cause any health issue. What we don't realize is the amount of sugar that we are unknowingly consuming through foods like packaged cereals ,juices , health drinks , pastries, burgers and even the so called 'low fat' packaged foods marketed as healthy foods. Excessive sugar in these forms can definitely become harmful. So, rather than banning sugar from your diet, try to make better food choices.
The steps you can take to reduce sugar intake in a week are -
1. Stay hydrated and avoid health drinks and packaged juices - 
Replace so-called health drinks and packaged juices with fresh drinks like lime water, coconut water, herbal teas and home-made fruit drinks like raw mango juice / aam panah and Water. The natural electrolytes will stop any craving for excessive sugar laden foods.
2. Limit caffeine intake - Drinking coffee in the morning causes caffeine kick which spikes the energy levels in the body. As soon as this spike wears off, there is an intense sugar craving in the body.
3. Eat more complex carbohydrates - Increasing consumption of complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and yams helps in stabilizing blood sugar levels in the body. This happens as they are digested slowly and help in controlling sugar cravings.
4. Restrict salt intake - Excessive salt consumption can increase cravings for sugary foods. Eating too much salt can cause the body to balance out the flavors thus leading to increased sugar cravings.
5. Exercise - Exercise causes perspiration in the body which helps in flushing out the salt and making the body alkaline thus reducing sugar cravings.
6. Limit processed food intake - Eating naturally occurring foods such as grains and fruits are healthier than eating packaged foods. Packaged foods generally contain both added sugar and salt which tend to increase sugar cravings and promotes weight gain. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am a research scholar and sitting n working at lab in addition to having the hypothyroidism condition have made me obese and I am now 65 kgs. I was 52 kgs 8 years ago before my marriage and after the birth of my first child (wen the thyroid condition was diagnosed) and then after the second one (after a year) in 2011, is mainly the reason of the obesity. I am seriously in need of a proper diet plan or something relevant to decrease as much weight as possible and required for my age and height (4.11 feet). Please advice. Presently I am on 100 mcg dosage of Thyronorm tablet. Just to inform. I also have mild to moderate thrombocytopenia.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is not controlled properly then weight gain continues. Having a job where one has to sit for long time and work, need not cause obesity, if one exercises adequately during rest of the time. So blaming the job is no good. You have added additional weight probably due uncontrolled hypothyroidism and inactivity plus diet. First thing is to bring TSH level down to 3 to 4 mU/L. Then start exercising for at least 1 hour a day and restrict dietary intake based on ideal body weight (49 kgs). Thanks.
