I am 18 years old and my belly is growing very fastly now a days. I can't able to diet because of my low hemoglobin count and I am thyroid patient. If I start dieting, I start feeling very weakness and can't able to do things properly and get tired very early. Please suggest me some healthy and helpful tips.

taking a planned diet that provides necessary calories is not going to give any weakness. To correct low hemoglobin level, there are iron and vitamin combinations available. Looking at your bmi (22.79 kg/m2), is fairly normal. I suggest, start some specific abdominal exercises which help in tightening abdominal muscle and also may help fat reduction. Plus your tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 mi u/ml then only all other efforts will be helpful.

Mr. Lybrate-user, primarily diabetes should be in control. Meaning fasting closer to 100mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7 (ideally 6.8%). These things are necessary to have absolutely healthy life. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kgs, with a bmi of 35.71 you are having grade 2 obesity. So it necessary for you to consider weight reduction at least 5 to 8 % of present weight. That it self will improve overall condition.

Please consult your nephrologist. I do not know why you think uric acid is significant when he is having a breathing problem and swollen leges which is progressing. First, kidney function and heart checkup have to be done immediately.

you can take tab. thyronorm according to level of thyroid. pl. tell us tsh level. High cholesterol can cause atherosclerosis, a dangerous accumulation of cholesterol and other deposits on the walls of your arteries. These deposits (plaques) can reduce blood flow through your arteries, which can cause complications, such as: Chest pain. If the arteries that supply your heart with blood (coronary arteries) are affected, you may have chest pain (angina) and other symptoms of coronary artery disease. Heart attack. If plaques tear or rupture, a blood clot may form at the plaque-rupture site — blocking the flow of blood or breaking free and plugging an artery downstream. If blood flow to part of your heart stops, you'll have a heart attack. Stroke. Similar to a heart attack, if blood flow to part of your brain is blocked by a blood clot, a stroke occurs.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Get your S creatinine level done. As medicine will depend upon your creatinine report.
