Get to know the correct tests to do as well as the treatment protocols. That is the reason world wide hypothyroid patients are on life long medications with the the autoimmune component not addressed correctly One has to do the right tests 1) 7 of them and not the only TSH. FreeT4 and Free T3 Which is the common tests done by even endocrinologists all over the world. The remaining 4 tests need to be done and 2) what patients are prescribed is the synthetic. T4 Thyroxine known by brands like Thyronorm./ Synthroid /Eltroxin are not the correct drugs Because T4 is not the active hormone which is what most of the drs prescribe T3 is the active hormone. T4 has to get converted to T3 in the presence of a healthy liver and adequate levels of nutrients like, Iodine,Zinc, B12 etc if your body lacks any of these nutrients and if you have a unhealthy liver your body is not able to convert T4 to T3 and you will be on life long medication 3) The lesson everybody should learn is to not blindly believe the drs. You get educated and empower yourself Do your homework properly and you have to take personal responsibility for your own health. So please Get the Right tests and get the Right Advice Stopping wheat is the best decision there are several other things to stop also if you want a healthy thyroid and healthy body. So Get educated and not medicated. Make your thyroid work for you and not against you.

The condition you are having hypothyroidism, where the hormone thyroxine (t4) is not properly produced by thyroid gland. Hence it has to be taken from outside and that too for patient's lifetime. The levels of t3, t4 & tsh are normal because of the treatment. So you can not stop it. Secondly the tablet has to be taken early morning and for two hours nothing should be taken after that. That is the requirement. If you do not follow that the benefits of treatment may not occur.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details mentioned. I have a few questions. What is the fasting & PP glucose level, plus HbA1c%? Because if diabetes is not in proper control, there is a possibility of fungal infection of the skin, including that of breast. This can give rise to itching. Plus breast itching can be due to many other reasons like dry skin, (in winter months), allergy to inner clothes worn or rubbing of clothes on to the skin while jogging or running. Or it may be due to eczema of skin. Your inners should always be washed and clean. If there is fungal infection antifungal ointment may help. Thanks.

All these are complications of diabetes itself. Let your so called diabetologist first control your father's blood sugars. 250+ is bad control. For the complications we have treatment. Text me.

Thyroid Gland - Diet Tips to Improve Health Of It!

Thyroid Gland - Diet Tips to Improve Health Of It!

The thyroid gland in your body is responsible for controlling and secreting those hormones that help in your natural growth and development. These hormones are crucial in regulating some of the most important functions of your body,  such as your heart rate, breathing, your body weight, your menstrual cycle and your muscle power to name a few. 

Problems of the thyroid gland (such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism) can hamper all of these vital functions, and these problems usually arise due to a poor diet. However, your diet can also help in improving the health of your thyroid gland. Here are some diet tips to help you out:

  1. Include lots of iodine in your diet: Iodine is a  nutritive element, without which your thyroid gland will not be able to function at all, being its building block. Therefore, iodine rich foods, such as fortified salt, eggs, seaweed and other dairy products should be a part of your diet. Along with iodine, zinc, selenium, copper and iron are other very important elements that should be a part of your diet too. 
  2. Plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants help: Since stress (blame it on cortisol, the stress hormone that overworks your thyroid in case of chronic stress) plays a major role in hampering the proper functioning of your thyroid gland, eliminating it and detoxifying yourself is extremely important. This can be done by  including plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants in your diet. White meat, fishes like tuna, peanuts, brown rice and fruits such as goji berries and wild blueberries can be of great help in this regard.
  3. Say no to soy: Soy is one of the main culprits behind the malfunctioning of your thyroid gland, as it contains an element known as isoflavones, which can reduce the iodine reserve in the gland. Apart from that, vegetables that belong to the brassica family such as cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are linked to causing goitre and must be avoided. Consumption of gluten must be avoided too, as it can cause autoimmune thyroid disorders, celiac disease and hormonal imbalances.
  4. Enjoy your daily meals: In today's fast paced world a stress-free meal is a thing of the past as most people are in a rush to get done with their breakfast, lunch or dinner. This hampers your digestive function and also puts stress on your thyroid glands. The best way to eat is to sit on a table and relax, enjoying every morsel you swallow. This ensures your thyroid remains healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.
