Faisalji, Hypothyroidism treatment has to be continued for life time. Taking drugs for 2 months and stopping will not be beneficial. You should avoid soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Always usw whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. ( no maida). Consume more of green leafy vegetables, and fresh fruits ( all fruits are OK). Exercise regularly so that weight gain is avoided.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS
If you have an under active thyroid gland, avoid consuming large quantities of goitrogens. These are substances that can suppress the thyroid gland if consumed in very large quantities. Foods rich in goitrogens include raw vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts; as well as soy, millet, peanuts and corn. Cooking these foods is advisable and inactivates the majority of goitrogens.

Stomach Ache in Kids - 7 Causes Behind It!

Stomach Ache in Kids - 7 Causes Behind It!

Stomach aches or abdominal pains are one of the most frequently reported health complaints faced by children. Children below the age of twelve are known to suffer from recurrent stomach pain. While pains such as these lead to momentary discomfiture, they also lay the path for graver worries if neglected for too long. Your child may feel sick and bunk school for two days; rest and home care can restore his or her health, but that in no way, is the best suited way of dealing with the situation. If tummy aches resurface over a certain period of time, parents should be cautious enough to look for the root cause and should try to eliminate it accordingly.

Widely noticed causes of stomach aches in children:

  1. Unhygienic food can affect the child’s digestive system.
  2. Intolerance to a certain food item should not be overlooked.
  3. Perpetual anxiety can make the tummy twist and turn.
  4. Urinary Tract Infections can also lead to acute abdominal pain.
  5. Serious factors such as gallstones or appendicitis could also be present. Immediate expert consultation is advised in such a case.
  6. Caffeine and packaged soft drinks can be harmful.
  7. Butter, ghee and other greasy products can trigger tummy aches.

Ways to treat tummy aches in children:

  1. Keep children away from gas producing food items: Food that is hard to digest should be avoided. Lentil soup or dal should only be consumed in limited amounts to prevent the formation of gas. Don’t let your child have too many nuts regularly.
  2. Keep them hydrated: Fluid intake should be monitored. A child should drink at least six to seven glasses of water per day. Fruit juices or soups can also be given to them alongside main meals. This helps digestion.
  3. Do not stack up food in one go: Eating a lot in one meal is a bad way of satisfying hunger. Have smaller meals in more numbers. Six to eight meals will keep your child full and will also eliminate chances of acid reflux which happens either due to an empty stomach or too much piling up of greasy food.
  4. Timely check - up with the doctor: If tummy aches refuse to go away, take your child to a doctor for a thorough check- up. Administer medicines as prescribed by the physician.

First time I checked TSH. And the result is 7.61, what I should to do take a medicine or what. And I am 36 years old and have a baby boy 6 yrs. And also plan to next baby in after 4-5 months. So please suggest what I should to do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi, in a normal person tsh 7.61 milli units is not considered as treatable level. Because it is called as subclinical hypothyroidism. If this accompanied by low t4 and /or there any specific symptoms suggesting hypothyroidism then treatment is recommended. Otherwise thyroxine is given only when tsh crosses 10 milli units/ml. However, if pregnancy is desired then it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2.5 milli units before conception and during 1st trimester, during second 0.3 to 3 milli units and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. This is essential for proper conception, development of fetus and successful outcome of pregnancy.

Respected sir, I am live in surat, gujarat, india. I haven't any problem but my mother is suffering from thyroid and her weight is 100 kg.She takes lots of medicine but no one are working if you help me that is my world best help. I hope you help me.

Hello, hypothyroidism if not in full control with high tsh, then weight reduction will not occur even with all the efforts. On treatment tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units / ml. This can help in weight reduction efforts. With 100 kg weight, patient has grade 3 obesity, which in itself is a major problem. This can lead to hypertension, diabetes and heart related conditions. It needs to be attended first. One of the possible methods is" bariatric surgery" which can help in weight reduction fairly rapidly. If you are serious enough then can consult some of the top surgeons in surat who can guide regarding this.

Hi. Thyroid conditions may cause generalised itching on your skin. Apply good moisturisers on your skin after bath. You may use coconut oil. Use mild cleansing lotion and avoid soap. Get your thyroid profile repeated and see of your dose needs any adjustment. Avoid direct contact of woolen clothing on your skin, wear cotton clothing underneath.

Dear, first of all my wishes for the holy month of ramadan. By going through your history and what you have written one thing is sure you have an habbit of getting irritable very soon. Please try and relax as it also affects your blood pressure and sugar. Your weight is high 84 kg might be due to hypothyroidism (water retention) or you need to reduce your calorie intake and restrict it to 2000 cals. Regarding your question of daily walks, of course walking helps in calorie burning reducing the fat deposits which help reduce the insulin resistance in in type 2 diabetics. It is advisable to take a walk for around 1 hr daily covering 6-7 kms which will burn around 300 cals. I hope your queries are resolved.

Deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Take plenty of water, 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, go for walk. avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time. FOR acid you can take syp. ulgel-A 15ml before meal.

Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 33.34 kg/m2. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Weight reduction is possible when you control hypothyroidism effectively with tsh levels being maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Along with that there has to be a strict diet control and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day. Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. Thanks for the question.
