Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

MD - Pathology, MBBS

Yes, genetic roll in diabetec patients is definately there. Plus you are obese. Do you smoke, consume alcohol, high blood pressure? if associated risk factors are present then you have all chances. Genetic roll cannot be avoided but can be delayed by changing life style, food habit etc.

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Hello, it is called subclinical hypothyroidism. And in pregnancy it needs to be treated. But recheck it (serum tsh & free t4) after 10-15 days with clia method. If it is more than 5 again, I will prescribe medicine for that. And dont worry, it is not any serious disease.

My wife age is 29 see is suffering from thyroid. She takes thyrox 50 mg daily. I just want to confirm that thyroid is curable or not or whether she will have to take this medicine for whole of her life.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hypothyroidism is a deficiency disorder, due lack of thyroxine, the hormone produced by thyroid gland. Since it is a very vital hormone required for brain development and functioning, plus for various important metabolic functions, hence needs to be supplemented daily from out side. So treatment has to go on for lifetime. There is no option. Even when tsh levels come within normal limit.

Hi lybrate-user, if your father follow the diet and do walk for 30 minutes in 5 days a week, he will control his diabetes, for that ask him to take one spoon fenugreek seed (soaked overnight) and take then in early morning daily, he should include all green leafy vegetable in his diet, multigrain cereals, nuts, avoid achaar, papad, sweet food items and artifical sweeteners. In fruits he can eat citrus fruits orange, mausambi, apple, pomegranate and other he can take but amount does matter, if you need the diet plan for him.

Hi The best test to take away your confusion is HbA1C test which is your previous 3 months average blood sugar. More than 6.5 is diabetes, if it's less than 6.5 but more than 5.7 it's pre diabetes. Less than 5.7, is normal.

Mr Deepak, It is difficult give the answer, unless sugar levels (fasting and PP) are mentioned and HbA1c% is known. Some times to control initial severe glucotoxicity Insulin is used along with oral anti diabetic drugs, to bring blood glucose down. Then it may be discontinued. This depends on response.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose levels mentioned point to being pre-diabetic state. This means one can develop diabetes any time if care is not taken. In such a situation avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, bakery items and sweetened aerated drinks is necessary. One may be liking sweets but if heath has to be maintained then necessary precautions are a must. Right now there is no need for medicines. Only modified lifestyle and exercise are needed. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, The mentioned blood glucose levels are absolutely normal. Therefore, weight loss is unlikely to be related to blood glucose. There may be other reasons, which may have to be investigated. Thanks.
