My mother is suffering from gout pain and thyroid from last 4 years. What is the proper treatment and medicine for it?
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

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. flax oil, 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.

Hello doctor I am babu I am 40 yrs old man I have suffering from diabetes problem so what should I do.
Dear diabetes control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. Even if you are pre-diabetic or borderline diabetic, or diabetes is part of your family, it is important to follow a diabetic diet to prevent diabetes. A diabetes diet should be high on fibre, must contain milk without cream, buttermilk, fresh seasonal fruits, green vegetables, etc. But remember to consume these components in moderation. Diabetes diet for indians should have the ratio of 60: 20: 20 for carbs, fats and proteins. Per day calorie intake should be between 1, 500-1, 800 calories with a proportion of 60: 20: 20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively. A diabetes diet should" have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan" though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions.). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack. Few tips. - one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Always remember diabetic dietary advice is highly personal. No two people can have the same advice. So take expert advice. Thank you.

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.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have hypothyroidism (tsh high), first thing is to take treatment with thyroxine tablets, dose depending upon tsh levels and your weight. Secondly avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Exercise regularly to avoid weight gain.

Hello, BP 140 / 60 is fairly good at the age 75 years, so continue the same medication. Reducing will increase the BP. Blood glucose control is considered good when FBS is clser to 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg and HbA1c% <7 at your age. (HbA1c% can be aloowed up to 7.5%). Thanks.

Take medicine to maintain thyroid test in normal range. Ask a doctor for required dose. Keep repeat testing every three months or so. Reduce fat and sugar consumption. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Eat 200 gms of salad half hour before every main meal. Eat less chapaties and rice and more of dal, soya badi. With this your weight will reduce. It will be better if remain in constant touch.

I am 50-years-old and haven't gone for any check-up that someone at my age should have regularly gone. But since I keep a busy schedule getting not more than six hours of sleep in a day, I feel tired at times. I have also a sweet tooth. But I have never tasted liquor in my life and have never smoked. I have been a veg for the past 15 years. My question is: If I go for a check-up and find out that my sugar levels are high, is there a way I can treat this without going for medicine?

Dear lybrate user, just because you have a'sweet tooth' does not mean you will have diabetes. Diabetes is caused by a number of factors. However in the last 30 years it has gone up globally due to excessive intake of carbohydrates in diet or middle and upper class. All the carbs + sugar you consume contributes towards diabetes. However you must get your complete body tests done and only then you need to worry about how to cure. First at least find out if you have a problem or not. In general you are little overweight. If you drop about 5-8 kgs, your health parameters will definitely improve.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes affects small and large blood vessels. Affection to small blood vessels causes multiple problems including erectile dysfunction. This can happen even with well controlled glucose levels. But if persistent hyperglycemia is there then ED is bound to occur. Hence, primary need is to achieve strict blood glucose control and secondly if there is need certain drugs may be needed to over come the problem of ED. Thanks.

#1. Once you take Extroxin, your hypothyroid problem is solved. It will no more add to your weight. #2. Green coffee bean tablets will not reduce any weight. Please avoid spending money and time on such stuff. There is no medicine/herb for weight loss. - The best solution for Weight loss is Simple Diet + Daily exercise. - Cut down Oils/Sugar/Maida/Ghee/Salty stuffs from your diet. - Cut down Puris/Parathas/Pizzas/Burgers/Fried Rice. - Add more Fruits /Salads/Proteins to your diet. Double your water intake. - Eat slowly and mindfully. Take 1600 calorie diet daily. - Reduce portion size. While eating out try to order less. - Exercise daily 'Intense' Cardio for 40-60 mins. - Don't just focus on Weight. Focus more on building Fitness. - Reduce socialising/company of people who are addicted to junk food and overeating. - Love yourself and respect your body.

I'm suffering from diabetes last 5 years and now using insulin humalog mix50 I want to know what can I do.
If you are a type 1 patient you need to take insulin life long. Humalog 50/ 50 (lispro) is 12 hr insulin so you need to take it 2 times daily. 50/50 means 50 % covers your breakfast sugars and remaining 50 % controls sugar for next 12 hrs. If your breakfast and dinner is heavy then it suits you. You can do smbg charting with glucometer at home to check your sugar fluctuations. It will help to monitor your insulin dosage.
