I am 23 weeks pregnant and suffering from thyroid and my legs got swell. So, what can I do at my home. I can already take medicines also for thyroid. Can I take hot water treatment for my swelling legs. Is, it safe in pregnancy.

BHMS

Swelling feet (oedema) happens because your body is holding on to more fluid than usual. The increased pressure in your leg veins, and pressure from your growing baby on the big veins in your groin, add to the problem. Swelling is common. About half of all pregnant women experience it around their ankles, particularly in the last few months of pregnancy. You may find your fingers, face and lower back become swollen too. The swelling in your legs usually gets worse towards the end of the day, especially if you're on your feet a lot. Gravity makes fluid collect at the lowest point in your body. Hot weather and being tired can also make swelling worse. Follow these tips to get relief 1. While sleeping keep your legs above hip level, you can keep some pillows below your legs 2. Eat a balanced diet with more vegetables, fruits, drink plenty of water 3. Sleep (7-8 hrs) 4. Go for regular exercise 5. Don't stand for long time go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment, since homoeopathic medicines act best during pregnancy, it will not only solve your basic issues but will make your baby also more healthy and immune.

The very fact that you have diabetes means that insulin resistance has been present for a long time even prior to the diagnosis of diabetes in you. I personally feel that a few oral medicines can be tried out in you rather than taking huge doses of insulin. Also, do ensure that your insulin administration technique is correct. A lot depends on that. And lastly as you have mentioned of an exercise bereft lifestyle, even a small effort in starting exercise will go a long way in overcoming the insulin resistance. Wish you good health.

Diabetes is a slow killing diseases. It cannot be felt many times in initial days. You need to get your sugar tested at least once or twice in a year haphazardly, so this will be safer rather than waiting for some disease to happen. Still if you have queries, please let me know. Take care :)

I am 27 years old I have a type 2 diabetes can you please tell me the weight loss please I am 80 kgs.
There is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have confirmed diabetes then taking anti - diabetic treatment is the only option, to control blood glucose. In addition to appropriate medicine regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day and diet control also are equally important. As regards food intake, you should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas) and fructose corn syrup containing products. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits like papaya, pomegranate, orange, sweet lime, apple, pear and guava. With good glucose control fruits intake should be about 100 g a day. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. So if you want specific drugs to be prescribed please come in a private communication with all details like Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present drugs if any, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, blood glucose 110 mg, if fasting, then there is no diabetes. Following are the criteria to diagnose: 1) normal: fbs 70 to 110 mg, pp <140 mg / 100 ml & hba1c% <5.9. 2) pre-diabetes: fbs 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg & hba1c%<6.4. 3) diabetes: fbs! 26 mg and above, pp 200 mg and above, hba1c%6.5 and above. So based on your current fbs, pp levels and hba1c% you can decide whether you have diabetes. As regards improving health you need to take a healthy diet, exercise regularly foor over an hour daiky and maintain weight with in normal limit. Plus avoid alcohol and smoking. Thanks.

Hello Sir, It depends on how high your TSH is. If it is above 10 and your T4 and T3 are normal and you are having symptoms you may be asked to go on tablets. If TSH is between 5-10, you can wait and watch without taking tablets and will be asked to get repeat TSH and T4 levels done once every 3 months. If TSH is very high, say above 20 and T4 and T3 are low then you definitely need to be on tablets. Initially you would need to do the tests once every 3 months. Once the TSH comes to normal range and your thyroxine tablet dose is stabilised you can repeat the tests once every year. Eat a well balanced diet, reduce consumption of sweets, sugars and refined carbohydrates Increase your protein content - dairy products, dals, eggs, non-veg. You can take nuts, flax seeds. Eat plenty of vegetables. Hope this helps you Thank you.
