Take tablet zyloric 100 daily. Initially you will experience more pain for a week, take pirox dt twice daily for one week. Don't take non- vegetarian food. Limit intake of dairy products. You can take pulses in limited quantities. Avoid beans. Symptoms will take 3-4 weeks to recover.

What food should be avoided in thyroid problem. please answer.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What food should be avoided in thyroid problem. please answer.
Foods to Avoid Many common foods and supplements contain compounds that interfere with thyroid functions. In general, it’s best to avoid the following foods and supplements: Soy: Studies suggest that phytoestrogens in soybeans and soy-rich foods may inhibit the activity of an enzyme that makes the thyroid hormones. One study found that women who consumed soy supplements were three times more likely to develop hypothyroidism. Iodine-rich foods: Some forms of hypothyroidism are caused by a lack of sufficient iodine. In such cases, using iodized salt or iodine-enriched foods can be beneficial. But eating too much iodine can have the opposite effect and suppress thyroid gland activity. Check with your doctor before taking supplements. Iron and calcium supplements: Taking iron or calcium supplements can also change the effectiveness of many thyroid medications. High-fiber foods: Although a high-fiber diet is usually recommended, too much fiber may interfere with the absorption of thyroid medicines. Certain vegetables: Cruciferous vegetables that are rich in fiber like broccoli, cabbage, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts can inhibit thyroid drug absorption. Reducing the amounts of such produce in your diet may help. Caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol can also influence the effectiveness of thyroid medicine. Ask your doctor for tips on how to regulate or reduce your consumption.

What is the most beneficial diet for a diabetes patient? What kind of food a diabetes patient should eat?

M.sc dietitics and food service management, Diabetes educator
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bhopal
What is the most beneficial diet for a diabetes patient? What kind of food a diabetes patient should eat?
Diet high in protein (20% of kcals) for the health of diabetics because it supplies the essential amino acids needed for tissue repair. Pulsese are rich in protein and fibre. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Junk food should be avoided. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, bay leaves in food items. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetes patient.

In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snack in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.

I used troilicity 150 .injection with this I had big gas problem is it safe or I stopped using this for my sugar.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I used troilicity 150 .injection with this I had big gas problem is it safe or I stopped using this for my sugar.
Mr. Lybrate-user, truilicity is a long acting drug, with action lasting over a week. It is quite safe but fairly expensive. There are other treatment options available, which can help in very good blood glucose control. Since you have grade 2 obesity with 36.43 kgs/m2 bmi, that drug must have been recommended, as it also helps in reducing weight. It absolutely essential for you to reduce weight otherwise blood lucose control will be very difficult. Thanks.

What's are the symptoms of increasing uric acid in our body, range of uric acid in a healthy female of 31 years old and how manage increasing uric acid level?

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Gout is a painful form of arthritis caused by too much uric acid in the body. The painful flare-ups may be concentrated in the big toe (a symptom known as podagra), as well as swelling and pain in the ankles, knees, feet, wrists or elbows. Normal values range between 3.5 and 7.2 mg/dL. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.  Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc.

Numbness may also be caused by extremely cold atmosphere depending on place where u live. I suggest you to clean intestines to expel AMA to strike laziness as a first step. Then pranayam is required. Then anti Vatic treatment is required. It takes not less than two to three months by safe Ayurveda treatment without side effects. Provided you are sure u r not diabetic. If diabetic, treatment would differ and for longer time.
