wheat allergy is not due to thyroid. Wheat allergy is an allergic reaction to foods containing wheat, one of the top eight food allergens in the United States. Allergic reactions can result from eating wheat, but also, in some cases, by inhaling wheat flour.Epinephrine is an emergency treatment for anaphylaxis. for wheat allergy.

Your husband's bmi is 32.87 kg/m2, thiis is classified as grade 1 obesity. Usually surgery is suggested in morbid obesity (grade 3 +) with a bmi over 40 kg/m2. The surgery is fairly safe, but with this level of obesity he can actually work vigorously and reduce weight with exercise and diet control. Even 5 to 10 % reduction in weight will bring a lot of benefits.

Dear, there are many things to consider for a diabetes control. Regular medications, diet control & exercise, mood swings, duration of diabetes. First you need to address these issues. If there is no problem with these then consult your diabetes doctor.

I am a 65 years old diabetic person having controlled sugar through regular medications. For last one month I have been experiencing swelling in both the legs and pain in the lower leg area normally covered under socks. My doctor has administered 3-days dytor plus and further changed triglucored forte withzoryl-2mg and istamet. Though my swelling in the legs has gone but the pain still remains in the lower leg area which is hardened. Kindly suggest what medications can be taken for the pain and softening the hardened area of lower leg. I am no more using socks for last one month as suggested by the doctor.

I want to know a few more details like your fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c and lipid profile. Is the pain aggravated by walking and does it reduce on stopping or resting for some time? if it happens that way, please get your blood supply to the limbs checked by colour doppler tests which show the internal blood supply. Because in diabetes peripheral blood vessels are affected by cholesterol deposition. You may also consult a vascular surgeon for this. How is your foot does it feel cold, or shiny looking? please inform me. Thanks.

DM type 2 report is in control you r on inj mixtard long acting do HBA1C DONOT change dose self show your diabetalogist so that they may even stop insulin and put you on tablet or decrease dose THYROID is ok then also need visit to your doctor r you HTN since when now mild nepropathy is their mild stage do liver function test LIPID profile USG abdomen ECG ECHO main aim is your maintain proper diet & decrease weight DIET FOR DM Food Should be distributed into small frequent feeds. The days requirement should be well distributed between the different meals. Skipping a meal or fasting is not really advisable. As far as possible, the patient should maintain ideal body weight. Considering the height, weight, activity, age and sex of the individual the days calorie requirement can be calculated. Of the total calories 55-65% should come from CHO's 15-20% from protein and the remaining 15-20% from fats. General Instructions to be followed Different cereals contain almost the same amount of CHO and so the quantity of cereal consumed should be noted rather than the type consumed. Whole grain cereals are better, preferred for their fibre content and satiety value. Rice Gruel if consumed, should be done so by discarding the rice water, and adding hot water. When consuming wheat porridge, it is better to have it with pulses than using coconut milk in it. Include whole pulses in the diet, soya products help to reduce cholesterol. Sprouted pulses are more nutrious. Fish can be included in the diet, in the curry form. Fried fish is the best avoided. Shell fishes like prawns, lobsters etc should be avoided. Poultry (Without Skin) can be used occasionally. Beef, Pork, mutton, liver etc should be avoided by cardiac patients. Trim off Excess fat (if any) before cooking. Egg yolk has to be avoided by individuals with hyperlipidemia. Milk and its products need not to be used more than 400 ml/ day. Use skimmed milk whenever possible, otherwise cream has to be removed before consumption. Root Vegetable like Tapioca, yam, potato, colocasia etc are better avoided and if used, should be in moderation instead of cereals. Include more vegetables (esp. Raw salads and green leafy vegetables) in your diet, as it is rich in fibre which in turn helps to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Raw salads with sprouted pulses enhances the nutrient composition. Fruits are restricted for diabetics and preferably should be consumed as such than having it in the form of juice. Select low calorie fruits from exchange list. Cardiac and hypertensive patients can take 3-4 servings of fruits. Whenever possible consume fruits with edible skins eg. Apple. Guava etc. Use of coconut and its products must be minimized. Cardiac patients need not restrict the intake of tender coconut water, whereas diabetes can only use it occasionally. It is better to avoid nuts like badam, peanuts, cashew nuts etc. But Occasionally can be used in restricted amounts instead of some other food items so that the calories remain unchanged. Sugar and sweet should be avoided by diabetic patients. Low calorie sweeteners can be used in moderation as substitutes for sugar, honey, sweets etc. Cardiac and hypertensive patients should minimize their intake of sugar and sweets. Garlic, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds cluster beans, oatbran etc have blood sugar and cholesterol loosing efforts. Ginger, foods in rich with Vit- E and B Carotene reduces the risk of cardiac diseases. Alcohol intake injurious to health, 1 ml of Alcohol contains 7 calories. Alcohol can cause hypoglyemia and can increase triglycerides which can be harmful for the heart. Cooking oil used should be minimized and may be restricted to 10-15 ml/day. (2-3 tsp). Use cooking methods that require little or no fat. Hidden fat in bakery products and snacks should also be taken into account. Preferably use a combination of cooking oils like sesame. Ground nut, sunflower, rice bran, corn oil etc. Use of coconut and palm oil should be maintained at minimum levels. Dinner should be enjoyed two hours before retiring. At bed time either diluted milk of fruit can be consumed. Include foods from all the different food groups and thus consume a balanced diet. Regular exercise is most useful but physical strain after a meal should be avoided. Free foods (can be included liberally) Thin buttermilk, unsweetened lime juice, jeera water, fenugreek water, raw vegetable salads made of low calorie vegetables, plain clear soups etc. Pappads, pickles, dried fish etc Canned and Salt preserved foods Sauces, soup cubes Sausages, lobsters, meat and yeast extracts Carbonated beverages Readymade foods like cornflakes, noodles, fast foods etc. Proprietary drinks eg. Horlicks, complan, bournvita etc.

Hello, I want to know everything about thyroid. How long one have to take medicine for thyroid? What are the effects of it if you stop taking medicine after some time?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, if you are talking about hypothyroidism, then the treatment with thyroxine which is hormone replacement therapy, hence has to be continued for whole life. Our thyroid gland produces t4 and t3 (t4 is thyroxine, t3 is triiodothyronine). Iodine required for synthesis of thyroxine. Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism and goitre. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, slow heart rate, joint pains, swelling of face and lower limbs, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, irregular menstruation, excess flow, speech difficulty, inability to concentrate, early tiredness and intolerance to cold. Hypothyroidism is diagnosed on the basis of tsh levels. Also another condition known as hashimoto's thyroiditis also causes hypothyroidism. In both these conditions treatment is taking thyroxine tablets for lifetime. Dose depends upon tsh levels and body weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, The product mentioned is a combination of some herbs, based on ancient ayurvedic texts. There are no proper double blind trials conducted on humans. Some animal studies have been done mainly or rats, where it has shown 67% positive results. This is as good as placebo. As there is no reliable standard clinical evidence, I will not able to comment on its benefits and use as an antidiabetic. Thanks.

Hi. I have thyroid related issues and facing the issue of hair loss from last 2 year what should I do?
You have mentioned you are having thyroid-related issues but not provided any specific details. Since you are on tab. Eltroxin, I presume you are suffering from hypothyroidism. Hair loss is one of the commonest symptom of hypothyroidism. I suggest you get your t4 and tsh levels checked.

Dear lybrate user, I hope your sugar control is fine. Hence, in view if this, the following would be useful for you this summer: - try having sufficient water - yes, please do exercise, as your weight is on the higher side, for at least 1 hour (brisk walking with proper walking shoes in the morning or evening, or cycling). Also, try to incorporate 20-30 mins everyday of strength training under a qualified trainer, as this has shown to reduce insulin resistance (ie improve your sugar control). - try not eating very sugary fruits like grapes, chikoo, mangoes (this you may have half a small bowl everyday). You may eat in limited quantity- oranges, guava, sweet lime, papaya, half a banana. You may have coconut water if you are feeling drained on a hot afternoon. - your diet for summer should include more fluids and fibre and less of cold, chilled, processed foods (even if they are sugar-free as these tend to contain fats or too much sodium- which will leave you more thirsty). - avoid going out in the day time, and always carry some sweet with yourself whenever you step out of the house. - though you would get tempted to weat open shoes in the summer, do ensure you take care of your feet and carefully wash your feet properly once you are back home. Ensure there are no wounds, cuts on your feet. - your daily meal would follow the same precautions you normally observe in your diet.
