Your bmi is 26. 6, and you are overweight. You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat, high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. White meat like fish and chicken made in little bit of olive oil / cornflower oil is good. If you don' t loose weight you could consider bariatric surgery. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website or send me a personal question.

Do regular walk 45 minutes and follow 1400kcal diet chart for which consult dietitian. Your tsh seems normal so this cannot be held responsible for your weight gain. Its lack of exercise and probably dietary issues.

My dad has an diabetes patient how to control that the diabetes and treatment and which food eaten.
Tip 1: Get more physical activity There are many benefits to regular physical activity. Exercise can help you: •Lose weight •Lower your blood sugar •Boost your sensitivity to insulin — which helps keep your blood sugar within a normal range •Tip 2: Get plenty of fiber Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Tip 3: Go for whole grains Although it's not clear why, whole grains may reduce your risk of diabetes and help maintain blood sugar levels. Try to make at least half your grains whole grains. Tip 4: Lose extra weight If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Tip 5: Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients.

Diabetes can be controlled with diet exercise and medicines. Take your medicines properly. You have to get eye check up done from an ophthalmologist, as diabetes affects retina. However, the refraction (specs number) can be different when sugars are very high.

My friend is too thin, she has thyroid problem. How can it be cured?

Thyroid problems can be hypo (less hormone) or hyperthyroid (excess hormone). What is the actual condition? if it is hypo then throxine hormone has to be taken, dosage being decided on the basis of patients weight and tsh levels. In case of hyperthyroidism treatment is different. For both these conditions there is no cure.

Abnormally high levels of homocysteine in the serum, above 15 ?mol/l, are a medical condition called hyperhomocysteinemia. This has been claimed to be a significant risk factor for the development of a wide range of diseases, including thrombosis, neuropsychiatric illness, and fractures. It is also found to be associated with microalbuminuria which is a strong indicator of the risk of future cardiovascular disease and renal dysfunction.

You are referring to hypothyroidsm I think. In that case based on your tsh levels and body weight, you have to start treatment with thyroxine tablets (thyronorm). This treatment has to be rgularly taken and for lifetime.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then to achieve proper control of all symptoms tsh level should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ l. So if tsh level is high, then you may have to increase the thyroxine dosage. And check tsh level after 6 weeks to see that dose has been helpful or not. Take care, thanks for the question.

Mr Maruti, To control diabetes mellitus and high BP one is you need to take appropriate medication, plus balanced and restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. For controlling BP you have to reduce salt intake and deep fried foods. If you are looking for specific guide lines then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern and amount of exercise done daily. There I will be able to give specific suggestions.

Kindly continue the same dose of levothyroxine. DONOT REDUCE THE DOSE. The requirement of medication would increase during pregnancy. Hence repeat the test when pregnancy is detected. Keep taking the medicine during the pregnancy especially during first 13 weeks when fetuses thyroid is yet to begin functioning and its need for levothyroxine are met through the mother. Regards.

pulmocare is a protein supplement ,like any other protein powder. It cannot give strength to your lungs. It is recommended only for those people who have poor appetite and food (protein ) intake. try having balanced diet with milk,dal,soyabean, eggs etc. It is not sugar free, and not recommended for diabetic patients. do regular exercise and pranayam to improve lung power.
