For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medication will depend upon blood sugar level.

Taking oral antidiabetic drugs initially when your pancreas is already stressed vl create unhealthy living after few years. Kindly do a hba1c test and if its too high then get started on insulin for first 3 months. The best way is this. Tests to b taken are lipid profile renal function test fbs; ppbs; hba1c urine analysis.

It gives you heart pain and sometimes located at your under chest. You have low hb about 7% so it is very low. You had not mentioned about your sugar levels as fasting and pp. You should have consult with ayurveda doctor who will help you for your problems.

It would be best to start insulin for you. But do so only under your diabetologist's advice. Also, undergo a complete evaluation to look for complications because they can influence your planned pregnancy.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

BHMS

Hi, also called hashimoto's disease, hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In people with hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body's needs. Located in the front of your neck, the thyroid gland makes hormones that control metabolism. This includes your heart rate and how quickly your body uses calories from the foods you eat. The exact cause of hashimoto's is not known, but many factors are believed to play a role. They include: genes, hormones, excessive iodine, radiation exposure. Treatments for hashimoto's thyroiditis: there is no cure for hashimoto's, but replacing hormones with medication can regulate hormone levels and restore your normal metabolism. The pills are available in several different strengths.

A Thyroid Total test was done on my wife from Dr. Lal Pathlabs and the TSH levels found were 12.97 I had certain doubt on the report. Now we have got the same test done again from Dr. Lal Pathlabs but from a different lab this time. The TSH levels found were 7.31 These tests were done on 6th & 11th Nov. I'm totally confused if the TSH levels can fluctuate to this extent within a week or the reports are manipulated?

She actually needs high protein diet but increasing the amount of protein will also increase her uric acid level. So, she should take high biological value protein like milk and milk products, egg white, baked fish, these won't increase the uric acid level when taken in appropriate amount. For diabetes, she should take high fibre, low carbohydrate, moderate fat diet and her diet should be small and frequent.

Thyroid report is fine continue with medication. There are lot of factors which affect conception other than thyroid, lifestyle, diet, stress are most common among them. And in many cases even if all reports are fine, it may take time in conceiving, more than a year. So she should try for few more months, making lifestyle & diet modifications.

Jalara is an expensive medicine. Instead of this you can take diamicron xr 60 once a day. Ayurvedic meds are not fully effective hence I would suggest you to stick to allopathy meds.
