What is the reason that people get thyroid? What is the cure if hyper thyroid to get rid of permanently?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, madam thyroid is the normal gland present in all of us, it produces hormone thyroxine, essential for development and functioning of brain, plus essential for almost all vital metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of that hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. Why thyroid disease occur is difficult to explain. There are many reasons including auto immune causes (hashimoto's disease - causing hypothyroidism), iodine deficiency leading to goitre and hypothyroidism. Radiation, environmental causes, heredity etc. All the conditione related to thyroid gland can only be treated and controlled. There is no cure. Treatment is for lifetime.

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.

Dear lybrateuser, -there is always a chance to get the disease if the parent has it but it can be avoided if you lead a healthy life including proper diet & exercise -have a diet rich in fruits (avoid banana, chickoo, mango, as they are high in sugars) & vegetables, more of green leafy ones -avoid fried, processed & junk food, use cooking oil sparingly about 1 teaspoonful per day, also restrict full fat dairy products, red meat -do regular exercise for 30-40 min like walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, play outdoor games, also include moderate weight lifting in your exercise regimen as muscles help burn sugar faster & keep blood sugar under control -to reduce stress do yoga & meditation for 5-10 min daily -keep a check on your weight, bp, blood sugar, cholesterol at least once in two years to prevent the disorder in future -get your vision checked as diabetes affects vision if sugar is high.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since your diabetes is in good control, and apparently you have no erectile dysfunction, then you can definitely try for another baby. Your diabetes does not affect your wife. As regards the baby, in the later part of life there is a possibility of kids getting diabetes. But a healthy lifestyle is maintained that can be prevented. Thanks.

How to control diabetes and blood pleasure. What type of food we have to consume, what type of exercise we have to do...
Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing to be clarified is that essential hypertension (high bp) and diabetes are not curable, both can only be controlled effectively by proper medication, diet control and regular exercise. Treatment has to go on for lifetime. To control high blood glucose following things are to done: 1) appropriate medicines based on fasting, pp glucose levels and hba1c%, to be taken regularly, 2) restricted diet providing exact calories based on ideal body weight, glucose levels and extent of daily exercise, 3) regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day, to keep weight in check and as near as normal, 4) avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, 5) refrain from alcohol and smoking. For controlling bp apartfrom all above you have to reduce salt intake to about 2 to 3 g a day. Avoid all highly processed foods. As regards exercise any exercise is good, simplest of option is brisk walking for 1 hour a day at least 5 days a week. If one can do a bit heavier exercise then it is welcome. Basically both these conditions need following a modified lifestyle along with medication.
