For a person with hypothyroidism foods containing soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard should be avoided, along with coffee. Should consume more green vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for making chapatis and rotis. In addition regular exercise is equally important.

Homoeopathy has best treatment for gout without any side effects, it will remove your tendency for increased uric acid permanently. Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe) is usually characterized by recurrent attacks ofinflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours. The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases. It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. The cause is a combination of diet and genetic factors. It occurs more commonly in those who eat a lot of meat, drink a lot of beer, or are over weight. The underlying mechanisms involves elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. When the uric acid crystallizes and the crystals deposit in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues, an attack of gout occurs. Diagnosis may be confirmed by seeing the characteristic crystals in joint fluid or tophus. Blood uric acid levels may be normal during an attack.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
To improve your hormonal balance and support thyroid health you should : Eliminate processed & simple carbohydrates Avoid foods high in sugar Some foods contain substances called goitrogens, which can cause thyroid to enlarge. Goitrogenic foods can also slow down the thyroid resulting in under activity. Avoid use of soy products & butter Avoid soft drinks & limit caffeine to 1 cup/day Avoid cabbage,cauliflower & broccoli Recommended lima beans - as it increases the thyroid function omega 3 -essential fatty acids (walnuts ,almonds & cloves ) fruits-apples,kiwi & pear veggie-carrot,pumpkin etc olive oil & coconut oil are safe with best of health Dr hegde

HbA1c is a blood test which gives an idea of blood sugar levels in the patient during last 2-3 months. It is helpful in diagnosing diabetes mellitus and also in planning as well as monitoring the response to the treatment. Other benefit is that it doesn't require fasting. Target of HbA1c is 7 for diabetics.

Madam, with random blood sugar level of 250 mg, your present treatment is definitely not adequate, you need to look at increasing the dosage or adding a newer drug. Plus consider restricted diet and regular exercise. As regards other branches of medical practices for treating a severe diabetes, there is not going to be any benefit. Those drugs can be used only once a good sugar control is achieved, justas additional supportive therapy. In the world today other than oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin there is virtually no treatment available. So please look at these facts. Further choice is yours. With regards.

I go bathroom 4 5 times in night. My sugar label is 69. Feeling heavy head. Sleepy , Weakness.Please tell.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if your sugar level is 69 mg/100 ml, then it is actually very low, that does not cause excess urination. But please check after food glucose level, if that is high (>200 mg/100 ml), then there is diabetes. Otherwise there may be some other reason for increased frequency of urination. Get routine urine test done for checking if there is urinary tract infection. Also get your bp checked, plus you are over weight, that also must be contributing for weakness. Please come back with all the above details, then I can be of help. Thanks for the question.
