Hello , Please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements,

As your meals are mostly during day time n so the risk of blood glucose getting high also rises. So morning dose is usually higher. But it depends on person to person.

Control of Diabetes is a is therapy done by a combined and serious team consisting of The Patient and the physician. Physician advises. Unless the recipient, I mean the patient seriously asks Physician is also can not give you the fullest. Its a psychological bond which is above all a professional advice only. Your uncontrolled diabetes may due to either your non compliance to the advice of physician or incompetent advice of the physician. I have no reason to believe the second part of the statement. I may believe at this juncture to stick to the following part and retest your BS fter 15 days. If you see any improvement, go back to your doctor and listen list him and follow his advice. If he is not giving your satisfactory attention, I know you know what to do. A patent always choose he physician not the physician choose his patient. He may love him with empathy. 1) Brisk Walking 5 Km daily - whether over weight or not, of course if it is not contraindicated by your treating physician. 2) Keep your Body Mass Index within 24 Kg / Meter Square of your body surface area, that is your healthy weight - by exercise and dietary management. 3) Diets - STOP the following - Sweet, Sugar, Potato, Fried substances, Starchy foods, Sweet drinks, Canned juices, Ice creams, Processed juice of any type. Butter, Cheese Avoid rice (if at all never more than one leveled Tea Plateful / day) Normal or high protein. Low fat. High fibre - Leafy vegetables + Vegetables (particularly less starchy and coloured one, which contains more antioxidants) 4) Meditation for 20 mins daily Hope its OK for the time being.

If your blood sugar checkup shows normal levels and you have no family history and are active enough, then you can get it checked once a year. In case of liver function tests too if you are not having known problems, a non alcoholic and tests have come normal then ther is no heed to repeat them often. Once in 2 - 3 years or if any specific problem has been noticed, then tests may be repeated.

Ayurvedic Approach Towards Hypothyroidism

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda

Hypothyroidism is a hormonal disorder caused by reduced amounts of thyroid hormone. It is more common than hyperthyroidism and affects women more than men. Iodine is a main ingredient of the thyroid stimulating hormone (tsh) and iodine deficiency leads to hypothyroidism.

Tsh is required for effective metabolism and reduced amount leads to affecting overall metabolism of the body and causing the following symptoms.

Slow pulse
Weight gain
Reduced attention/concentration span
Intolerance to cold
Hoarseness of voice
Irritability
Inability to concentrate
Depression/low mood
Fatigue
Swollen face and droopy eyes
Dry skin
Mental
Premenstrual tension
Muscular pain
Ayurveda believes that this is due to an imbalance between the 3 body systems - vata, pita, and kapha. In hypothyroid people, the pita is supposed to be overpowered by kapha which reduces metabolism.

Treatment is aimed at bringing out balance between the two.

The various ayurvedic components include:
Panchakarma and external therapies like vamana, shirodhara, virechana, basti, udwarthana, kashaya seka are shown to play a significant role in managing symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Activities:

Specific asanas and pranayamas that are directed at the thyroid have been proven to be beneficial.

The most effective asana is sarvangasana or the shoulder stand. It improves blood flow to the thyroid and thereby improves its function. Matsyasana, surya namaskara, pavan muktasana, and halasana are also beneficial for hypothyroid patients.
Ujjayi is the most common pranayama which acts on the throat area and stimulates reflexes in this area.   nadi shodhana pranayama also is proven to have beneficial effects on the metabolism.
Internal remedies:

Appetizers and digestive agents are given to improve metabolism. These include herbs and whole grains and specific food products including dairy products.

Food changes:

Food has a major role to play, and some of the do's and don't's are as follows.

Increase water consumption, preferably warm water, to improve digestion
Include more iodine-containing foods like white onions, fish, shellfish
Include more whole fibers like brown rice, barley, green gram, bengal gram, cucumber, and sugarcane juice
Increase consumption of milk and milk products
Avoid sour food items
Herbal products recommended for hypothyroidism include kanchanara, (purple mountain ebony), jatamansi, shilajita, gokshura, brahmi, and punarnava
Apply a paste of jalakumbhi which helps by supplying iodine to the goiter directly
Jalakumbhi juice can also be consumed daily (11 to 22 g)
Coconut oil, being rich in medium chain fatty acids, increases the body's metabolism and helps in managing symptoms of hypothyroidism
Lifestyle changes: in addition to the above, meditation and regular exercises to maintain a healthy lifestyle, reduce stress, and manage weight have shown to help control symptoms to a large extent.

Hypothyroidism is a chronic condition but can be managed with a combination of food, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
