I am suffering from thyroid. How can I cure it at home by myself. Please help me out with your answer.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Ask Free Question
Hello, by referring to thyroid are you saying it is hypothyroidism? if so then only way to control it is by taking thyroxine tablets dose of which is depending on tsh levels and your weight. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Also consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. There are no home remedies once the condition develops.

I am 35 years old. My cholesterol and suger level is high. what can i do?
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . avoid sweet meal.tea,coffee.

I have diabetes. Why is that I should not have surgery foods? What sort of sugary food I can have?
Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

Non secretory endometrium refers to a phase of the menstrual cycle before ovulation. The endometrium becomes secretory after ovulation under the influence of progesterone. There are two phases to the endometrium. The first half of the cycle the endometrium grows under the influence of estrogen only= proliferative phase. The second half of the cycle progesterone is added if ovulation occurs= secretory phase. By definition on your report the endometrium was not secretory. In brief: 2nd phase absent.

Thyroid is treatable, but we should know the present levels to understand how much intensive its rt now. In hypothyroid patients, better to avoid taking much quantity of cabbage, cauliflower, soya contents, peanuts, bracccoli etc. But in smaller quantity you can take, you need to consume more iodine contained diet. Where in that bhendi contain good amount of iodine.

How to reduce High Urea and Creatinine level in my 70 yr old granny.
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. tab. bencid 500mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am surprised to know that" sometime you don't get one medicine at shops for months" that too in a city like nagpur. Getting fed up with treatment is not going to help as this is a treatment for lifetime. There is no other option. Unfortunately only appropriate drugs are in the allopathic or modern medicine. Now it is your choice whether to continue or change over to some other practice. All over the world these are the medicnes for diabetes.

Mr Sai, By referring thyroid are talking about hypothyroidism? If so she has to be on treatment with thyroxine tablets, which I am sure is on. Other precautions needed are : Taking thyroxine tablets early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken for 2 hours after that. This must be followed. Then avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Also she has to exercise daily for at least for 1 hour. Plus she should check TSH levels at least once in 4 to 6 months.

Dear Madam, Your TSH is mildly increased, I don't think you got your T3 and T4 levels checked. When TSH is raised and T3 and T4 are normal then that condition is called Subclinical Hypothyroidism. Here a patient may not have any symptoms. When TSH is raised and T3 and T4 are low, then it called Overt Hypothyroidism, here patient may have symptoms like period problems, dry skin, hair loss, weight gain, low mood etc. So without knowing T3 and T4 levels it is difficult to categorise if you have Subclinical or Overt Hypothyroidism. Period problems can be of different reasons too-may be due to other hormonal imbalance. Did your gynaecologist check your FSH, LH, Estrogen, Progesterone etc? Either way whether Subclinical or overt Hypothyroidism, the treatment is the same. You will on thyroxine replacement therapy. You need to take this most probably for lifelong. Once your TSH levels come to normal range, the dose of tablet can be reduced. But do not stop the tablet without informing your doctor, it is very important for young girls to have their TSH in normal range before becoming pregnant. Even though your TSH is in normal range if you stop the tablet, in a few month the TSH will start to raise again. So it is better to be on the least possible dose. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Lybrate-user it will be advisable if you can revert with the list of medicines, your last hba1c levels. You have to understand that to keep diabetes under control regular exercise, diet modification and proper medication is key to treatment. There is some element of genetic transfer of this but still with a good life style we can control this.
