Nuts don't reduce blood sugar, they are beneficial if taken in limits. They tend to raise good cholesterol.

Sir/Madam I am Married, I have hypothyroidism, my previous reading was 8.5MicroIU/ml, I have consulted physician he has increased my dosage to 50mcg, previously I was taking 25mcg. Now recently I have checked tsh level is 0.19MicroIU/ml (Normal Range Mentioned-0.30-5.5) I was shocked to see my report, it has almost gone below the normal, T3-122ng/dl (60-200) and T4-12.4microg/dl (4.5-12.0. So my question is, is it normal to have such levels what should I do now? What could be the cause, still I have not get my period. Kindly suggest?

Dear patient, it is a good news that your levels under control but the recent report shows less than the normal range. Now you need to take 50 mcg one day and 25 mcg another day so that you can alternate taking these medicines and once again you need to check your thyroid levels, take care.

Yes, adam's apple reduction requires careful thinning of the voice box cartilages. It is not commonly done in most males but is extremely commonly done in sex change (gender reassignment) surgery. You may want to consult a surgeon who specializes in these procedures.

थायरॉइड का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार है बेहद असरदार ..... !
* हमारे शरीर में मौजूद थायरॉइड ग्रंथि जब कम मात्रा में हार्मोन बनाने लगती है तो शरीर में हाइपोथायरॉइडिज्म की समस्या हो जाती है !
हमारे गले में थायरॉइड ग्रंथि होती है जो गले में स्वरयंत्र के ठीक नीचे व सांसनली के दोनों तरफ तितली के पंख के समान फैली होती है !
इससे निकलने वाले हार्मोन जब हमारे खून में कम या अधिक मात्रा में पहुंचते हैं तो शरीर में कई प्रकार की समस्याएं होने लगती हैं !
थायरॉइड ग्रंथि को मस्तिष्क में मौजूद पिट्यूटरी ग्रंथि नियंत्रित करती है जिससे थायरॉइड स्टीम्युलेटिंग हार्मोन ( टीएसएच ) की उत्पत्ति होती है !
थायरॉइड ग्रंथि जब कम मात्रा में हार्मोन बनाने लगती है तो शरीर में हाइपोथायरॉइडिज्म की समस्या हो जाती है !
♀ जानते हैं इसके बारे में :-
☼ ऑटो - इम्यून - डिसऑर्डर :-
( इसमें शरीर का रोग प्रतिरोधी तंत्र थायरॉइड ग्रंथि पर आक्रमण कर देता है ) - शरीर में अन्य हार्मोन का असंतुलन - रेडिएशन - दवाओं व सर्जरी के दुष्प्रभाव - कम मात्रा में आयोडीन का सेवन और फैमिली हिस्ट्री होने पर हाइपोथायरॉइडिज्म की समस्या हो सकती है !
☼ लक्षणों को पहचानें :-
वजन बढऩा - थकान व कमजोरी - उदासी - मांसपेशियों व पैरों में सूजन और खिंचाव - याददाश्त में कमी - आंखों में सूजन - त्वचा का रूखा व मोटा होना - कब्ज - बालों का झडऩा - माहवारी की अनियमितता या अधिक स्राव - सर्दी लगना व कम पसीना आना - आवाज में भारीपन और नाखून मोटे होकर धीरे - धीरे बढऩे जैसे लक्षण होने लगते हैं !
$ प्याज - चुकंदर - कचनार - काला नमक - मूली - शलजम - ब्राह्मी - कमल ककड़ी - कमलनाल - सिंघाड़ा - हरी - सब्जियां - हल्दी - फूल - मखाने - अनार - सेब - मौसमी - आंवला - जामुन - अनानास - करेला - टमाटर - पालक - आलू - मटर - टिंडा - परवल - पनीर - दूध - दही और लस्सी आदि को अपनी डाइट में शामिल करें !
$x पत्तागोभी - ब्रोकली - केला - काजू - सुपारी - सरसों का साग - पीला शलजम व मूंगफली से बचें !
* ऐसे रोगी जो मोटापे से पीडि़त हैं उन्हें चाय - चावल - चीनी - शक्कर - गुड़ - अंडा - मांस - मक्के की रोटी - मैदे से बने खाद्य - पदार्थ जैसे ब्रेड - बिस्किट - जंक फूड और तली - भुनी चीजें जैसे चिप्स - समोसा आदि से परहेज करना चाहिए !
☼ एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में दो चम्मच शहद व आधे नींबू को निचोड़कर सुबह चाय के स्थान पर लें - इससे वजन नियंत्रित रहता है !
कैल्शियम की कमी होने पर खूबानी - खजूर - किशमिश - बादाम - फैट फ्री दूध - पनीर - प्याज - लहसुन - अखरोट - नारियल - अंजीर खाएं !
* इन बातों का भी रखें ध्यान :-
हल्का - सुपाच्य व पौष्टिक आहार लें - शरीर को आराम दें - ज्यादा शोर - शराबे से बचें - सर्वांगासन - हलासन - उष्ट्रासन - उज्जयी जैसे आसन व कपालभाति और अनुलोम - विलोम प्राणायाम नियमित रूप से करें !
डिप्रेशन में अनुलोम - विलोम जरूर करें - शून्य मुद्रा व अग्नि मुद्रा का नियमित अभ्यास लाभकारी है !
♀ आयुर्वेदिक इलाज से होगा लाभ :-
* ब्राह्मी - गुग्गुलु - मघ पीपल - कालीमिर्च - त्रिफला - दाख ( मुनक्का ) - दशमूल इत्यादि का नियमित प्रयोग करने से हार्मोन में असंतुलन की समस्या दूर होती है !
* 10 किलो गेंहू के आटे में दो किलो बाजरे का आटा व दो किलो ज्वार का आटा मिलाएं - इस आटे से बनी रोटियां खाने से लाभ होता है !
* 100 ग्राम की मात्रा में दानामेथी व सूखे धनिए को बारीक पीस लें - रात के समय इस मिश्रण की दो छोटे चम्मच की मात्रा दो गिलास पानी में भिगो दें - सुबह खाली पेट इस पानी को पिएं व मिश्रण को चबाकर खाएं !
आंवला - गोखरू व गिलोय चूर्ण को समान मात्रा में मिलाएं - इसे 1 - 3 ग्राम सुबह - शाम पानी के साथ लेने से रोगियों का तनाव दूर होता है !
* कचनार गुग्गुलु की 3 - 3 गोलियां दिन में दो बार - दशमूलारिष्ट या दशमूल क्वाथ 20 - 20 मिली पानी से लें !
* सुबह खाली पेट गो - मूत्र या इसके अर्क का सेवन करना लाभकारी है !
सुबह मलत्याग के बाद गो - मूत्र को बारीक कपड़े से छानकर प्रयोग करें - इसेे लेने के बाद एक घंटे तक कुछ न खाएं - महिलाएं मासिक धर्म के दौरान भी इसे ले सकती हैं !
* गर्मियों में गो - मूत्र कम मात्रा में लें क्योंकि इसकी तासीर गर्म होती है - इसके प्रयोग के दौरान चाय - कॉफी - मांस - अंडा - दही - गरिष्ठ भोजन व मादक पदार्थों से बचें !
* दशमूल - दानामेथी - कलौंजी - अजवाइन - भुना जीरा - मीठी सौंफ - चपटी सौंफ व करी पत्ता सभी को 50 - 50 ग्राम की मात्रा में लेकर दरदरा कूट - रात को 2 गिलास सामान्य पानी में 2 चम्मच इस मिश्रण को भिगो दें - सुबह धीमी आंच पर इस पानी को बिना ढके पकाएं - यह पानी चौथाई शेष रहने पर इसे छान लें व हल्का गुनगुना पिएं - यह रोगी की सूजन व मोटापे को कम करने में फायदेमंद है
गर्मियों में प्रयोग न करें क्योंकि इसकी तासीर गर्म होती है - ताजा काढ़ा बनाएं व सुबह ही इसे पिएं !
गर्भवती व पित्त प्रकृति वाले प्रयोग न करें !
☼ माहवारी कम आना :-
अत्यधिक दर्द और अनियमितता जैसी समस्या होने पर रात को सोने से पहले एक गिलास उबले हुए दूध में चुटकी भर हल्दी डालकर पिएं !
♀ हाइपोथायरॉइडिज्म में रात को सोते समय 1 - 3 ग्राम की मात्रा में त्रिफला चूर्ण / त्रिफला के दो कैप्सूल / 30 मिलिलीटर एलोवेरा और त्रिफला जूस रोजाना लें !
* पंचकोल चूर्ण व त्रिफला चूर्ण ( दोनों 100 ग्राम मात्रा में ) मिलाकर रखें !
सुबह - शाम भोजन के बाद चौथाई चम्मच लेने से बढ़ा हुआ कोलेस्ट्रॉल व वसा नियंत्रित होते हैं !

♀ चरक संहिता में बताए गए वर्धमान पिप्पली का सेवन सौंठ के काढ़े के साथ करने से लाभ होता है !

You can take 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. 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,

If blood sugar level is high there will be more urination so her sleep is disturbed. With correct medications blood sugar can be controlled.

You need to keep a tab on your sugar levels regularly. Also increase the intake of veggies, salads, whole grain cereals like jowar, bajra, oats, etc and avoid foods high in sugars such as sweets, rice, potato, etc. Take medications on time and ensure you eat small potions at regular intervals. Never skip any meal.

Her latest blood sugar test results are: fasting Blood sugar : 90 mg post lunch Blood sugar: 150 mg.

Do it after 2-3 days without medicine and see again. If it comes normal do it again after a week and if consistently both the samples, fasting and post meal remain normal, then stop medicine but continue dietary restrictions and exercises. Afterwards do monthly follow up checks and act as per reports.

Mr Selvamani, If you have confirmed T2 DM, then there is no way that can be controlled without medicine. In prediabetic condition one can control that without medicine and postpone getting diabetes. But once a person gets it then drug treatment is essential. Plus you have to exercise daily for at least 1 hour and take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, canned fruit juices, ghee, butter and high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. This routine will help in better control of blood sugar.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes t2 is a preventable disease, so is high blood pressure. But t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease and can not be prevented. Following healthy habits, exercising regularly, taking a balanced diet, avoiding junk food, alcohol and smoking can help a person healthy and free from diabetes (t2) and high blood pressure. But no one can remain totally disease free. Human skin colour can not be changed, whatever one might do or apply to it. One should accept the colour god has given. Taking various vitamin supplements without any deficiency is not going to benefit.
