What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.
a healthy control of blood sugars and cholesterol is not possible only with healthy food. We doctors advocate what is called as healthy lifestyle. Which is a combination of good food, exercise and a calm and healthy mind also. Now for healthy food, you need to have balanced diet. But if you're diabetic and have high cholesterol then you need to cut down your carbohydrate and sugar intake. I. E reduce rice, and eat things with high fiber like whole wheat, maize, ragi etc. Your protein intake must also be good. But instead of non veg which would increase your cholesterol, take egg whites, (the yellow part is very high in cholesterol), germinated pulses are high in protein. Also soya. Reduce or avoid fried food and junk food and sweets and carbonated sweetened drinks like soda, cola etc. Oil can also be changed to olive oil as it is low in cholesterol. Eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Diabetics are advised to avoid bananas, mangoes, grapes, but apples with skin on, oranges and mosambi are very good. Raw vegetables and plenty of green leafy vegetables can be taken make sure you exercise at least thirty minutes a day. A walk of fifteen to thirty minutes after food would reduce your blood sugar almost as much as a tablet. Try to meditate at least ten minutes in a day.

I am hypothyroid patient so kindly advise me of weight loss some domestic treatment & any advised?
I am sure you are on thyroxine tablets to replace the hormone. This treatment will help you to control weight. However, physical exercise is equally important, you need to walk for more than 1 h a day. Avoid high fat diet, too much of sweets. Take iodinated salt. Avoid soya products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee.

A tsh of 9.38 is high and will make you feel pretty ill but I wouldn't say it is dangerously high so don't worry about it too much there are people who are diagnosed when their tsh is 100 and I've even seen someone post with a tsh of 240. You will be able to lose the weight again once your treatment is optimal but it will be hard work like any diet and exercise routine is. You will have to find a diet that works for you as everyone is different and you may find that the diet that worked in the past doesn't anylonger. Ayurved panchkarm treatment also helpful to reduce loose weight. Arogyavardhini vati -medohar gugglu - dashmool kwath - kanchnar gugglu also helpful.

I have diagnosed thyroid few days ago. How to prevent from this? What are the symptoms and effect of this?

DRCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
Thyroid gland affection manifest in our body mostly in three form- hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and goiter. Mostly women in middle age group are affected by hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are- weight gain and edema, mood disturbances and irritability, lethargy and loss of interest in work, rough hairs and hair fall, heavy menses and cold intolerance. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism- hot body and heat intolerance, loss of weight, increased appetite, excessive sweating and trembling of body. Bulging of eye ball may also present that is called exopthalmous goiter. In simple goiter there is swelling and hypertrophy of thyroid gland which is manifested in the form of big nodule at the anterior part of neck. This is a type of hormonal imbalance in our body. So there is not any specific mode of prevention of it. Yet by healthy food habit and healthy life style we can avoid many diseases. Genetic involvement is also seen in thyroid affection. Take medicine properly as prescribed to you to remain fit.

Absolutely, you can control all your imbalances without any medicines. If your hba1c is below 7, there is nothing to worry. Your tsh is just above normal range, but don't make a mistake to start thyroid medicine at this level. The only thing you have to manage is your dirt and lifestyle. 1. Take small meals on regular interval (say 2hrly) 2. Avoid sugar in diet. 3. Avoid fatty, oily, spicy food items. Take light easily digestible food items. 4. Keep your mind happy and relaxed. Start yoga and meditation. For specific diet you may visit any good dietitian.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch. www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
A TSH level of 24.3 indicates you are suffering from hypothyroidism that is your thyroid gland is functioning slower than normal. You have mentioned that you are on medication I.e.thyrox how many mcg is the tablet? Yes homoeopathic medicines are useful in hypothyroidism. Avoid diet rich in cauliflower, cabbage or broccoli as it interferes with your gland function. Also increase your protein intake in form of sprouts, Dals etc.

Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. Avoid 3 big meals. Instead take small mini meals every 2/3 hours. Take green vegetables/salad with every minimeal. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. Eat fruits  with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange.  .Eat proteins like dals, sprouts, (NV) egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal. These steps can help reduce sugar levels.

Thyroid During Pregnancy!

MICOG, MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Thyroid During Pregnancy!

Nothing can be more gratifying than welcoming your bundle of joy into this world. Care needs to be taken during pregnancy to ensure that the developing foetus is healthy. Many pregnant women suffer from Thyroid problems. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is an important hormone produced by the Pituitary gland. TSH regulates the production and action of the Thyroid Hormones (T3 and T4). Estrogen and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin also affects the production of the thyroid hormones. Abnormal level of thyroid hormones in the body can result in Hyperthyroidism (increased production of thyroid hormones) or Hypothyroidism (decreased production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland). These conditions, if left untreated, can prove to be fatal for the mother and the baby.

Hyperthyroidism is greatly affected by an autoimmune disease, the Graves disease. The Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI), produced during Graves disease, interferes with the production of the thyroid hormones. The TSI mimics the TSH to a great extent. This triggers the thyroid gland to produce the thyroid hormones in excess. A woman with hyperthyroidism may complain of increased heart rate, fatigue and increased blood pressure. There may be heat intolerance, tremor, sudden weight loss and Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

Untreated Hyperthyroidism can result in heart ailments, premature child birth, foetal Tachycardia, Preeclampsia (a pregnancy complication characterised by an abnormal rise in blood pressure) and miscarriage. In case of foetal and neonatal Hyperthyroidism, there is low birth weight, heart ailments, irritability and poor brain development.

Blood tests, whereby the levels of T3, T4, TSH and TSI are examined, can help in the diagnosis of Hyperthyroidism. Women with Graves disease should be extra careful. Antithyroid drugs can provide great relief. Most antithyroid drugs successfully cross the placenta and effectively regulate the production of the foetal thyroid hormone. Propylthiouracil (PTU) and Methimazole are effective anti-thyroid drugs.
Most doctors recommend Methimazole during the first trimester and PTU during the last two trimesters.

In case of Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto disease is the main wrecker in chief. This autoimmune disease results in considerable decrease in the production of thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism can also be aggravated by Thyroidectomy (surgical removal of thyroid gland). Like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism during pregnancy can result in serious health complications. There may be stillbirths, congestive heart failure, miscarriage, anaemia, poor brain development of the newborn and Preeclampsia. Symptoms like cold intolerance, muscle cramps, concentration problems, fatigue or constipation should not be taken lightly.

Blood tests (T4 and TSH) go a long way to detect Hypothyroidism. A synthetic Thyroid hormone, Thyroxine, is effectively used to treat hypothyroidism. Including iodine supplements in your diet prove to be helpful in hyperthyroidism treatment.

Thyroid problems, though serious, can be successfully treated. A little alertness during pregnancy can shield both the mother and the newborn from the harmful consequences. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Your tsh values are in normal range with above dosage? hypothyroidism normally doesn't cause weight gain more than 4 kg. Your weight gain is may be related to diet. According to your height and weight and bmi you fall in obese 1 cat. You should give more attention on diet along with exercise. There are certain medication like metformin and orlistat that might help to loose weight but that needs prior clinical examination. You can consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist for the same.
