Is there any side effects of taking sugar free pills instead of sugar in daily routine?
Sugar-free pills have till date not undergone any major human study trial. By doing human study trial we ascertain the benefits and risks of any agent on scientific basis. So in reality everybody is consuming these sweeteners on the basis of animal trials !

you have overactive thyroid..Good Foods For Hypothyroidism Foods that are rich in iodine are highly recommended in the struggle to ward off hypothyroidism. Below is a categorized list of good food sources. Iodine-Rich Foods For Hypothyroidism Iodized Salt Seaweeds and Seafoods Salt Water Fish Sushi Nori Rolls Celtic Sea Salt Selenium-Rich Foods For Hypothyroidism Meat Chicken Salmon Tuna Whole Unrefined Grains Brazil Nuts Dairy Products Garlic Onions Iodine For Hypothyroidism The thyroid gland needs iodine, therefore if you have an underactive thyroid gland you should increase the iodine intake in your diet. A well-balanced diet that includes iodine can help in alleviating the symptoms that you encounter with your condition. With the simplest intake of the foods mentioned above, you can greatly assist your thyroid in keeping up with your body's metabolism. (See Hypothyroidism and Iodine for more information) Foods To Avoid For Hypothyroidism These foods must be avoided in order to prevent recurrence of hypothyroidism symptoms. Avoiding them will also prevent aggravating the already aggravated thyroid glands. Here is a list of foods to be avoided: Cassava Linseed Kohlrabi Peanuts Kale Turnips Mustard Greens Mustard Millet Cauliflower Rutabagas Peaches Coffee Spinach Goitrogenic Foods To Avoid For Hypothyroidism The food items listed below can impede your body's ability to absorb iodine. And when your body can't absorb iodine, your thyroid gland will swell and you will eventually develop goiter. Some of the food listed above can also be goitrogenic. Bamboo shoots Soybeans and related products Canola Oil Horseradish Bok Choy Foods with Gluten Garden Kres Tempeh Babassu Sweet Potato Goitrogenic Chemicals These chemicals, when ingested through processed food or medications can cause goiter: Amiodarone Lithium Oxazolidines Iopanoic acid Minocycline (MN) Propylthiouracil Thioureylene Sulfadimethoxine Carbamazepine Phenobarbitone Treatment of stage I and II papillary and follicular thyroid cancer may include the following: Total or near-total thyroidectomy, with or without radioactive iodine therapy. Lobectomy and removal of lymph nodes that contain cancer, followed by hormone therapy. Radioactive iodine therapy may be given following surgery.

Janumet contains sitagliptin and metformin. This tablets basically helps to control post meal high sugars. I think you just need to take it regularly. You can continue triglynase 2 as before.

Hello is this Thyroid test normal? My endocrinologist said it is normal Free T3 2.9 pg/ml Free T4 1.4 ng/dl TSH 0.94.

Although the lab parameters are normal, I would note that the FT3 could be considered suboptimal. If you have symptoms such as abnormal weight gain, low energy levels, dry skin, hairfall, low moods, etc, I would investigate further for metabolic imbalances and treat the same. This may or may not include Thyroid supplementation. Secondly, in cases of infertility, prediabetes or depression, I would treat with T3 supplementation rather than T4 for a period of time under close supervision.

Early stages. You can do diet & exercise without medications during the early stages. This will also delay the requirement for medications. Repeat sugars after 2 months of regular diet and exercise and if controlled, continue the same with regular 3 month follow up
