Swethaji, Hypothyroidism is to be treated for life time. There is no question of stopping the treatment It has to be continued for life time.Plus you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

Mr chaitanya, you are aware that diabetes is condition caused by either lack of insulin or resistance to its action due to excess fat and glucose in the body. So the best drug to treat diabetes is insulin itself. But since injections have to taken patient tend to avoid as far as possible. With insulin pens and newer long acting insulin analogues now a days most patients (particularly t2) can be controlled by a single injection. There are hardly any major side effects, but certain problems do occur like hypoglycemia (sugar level going too low), it can be a bothersome effect. With correct dosage and diet scheduling it can be minimised. Second there is some weight gain with older insulins. Otherwise no problems are encountered.

Weight loss will help him solve most of the problems. Ask him to follow a healthy diet & lifestyle regimen. He should increase his physical activity level. Regular 1 hr brisk walk in morning will be good. Having small frequent meals at regular intervals instead of 3-4 large ones is essential. He should eat slowly & chew food well. Take stairs instead of lift & walk instead of hiring transport. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ sugary/ fired foods, soft & hard drinks, refined carbs (sugar, potato, white rice, sabudana, jaggery, honey, noodles, white bread, biscuit, cake). Instead have plenty of whole fruits & vegetables. Include whole grains (atta, dalia, suji, jowar, bajra, barley, oats, brown rice) vitamin d- sunlight exposure between 12-2 for 20 mins, shiitake mushrooms, fatty fish, cod oil capsule (2 daily post meal). Uric acid- avoid seafood, chicken. Include low fat dairy (curd, buttermilk, lassi, channa, milk). Not more than 1 bowl pulse a day. Maintain optimal body weight. Cholesterol- weight loss, avoid- yolk portion of egg, red meat, saturated fats, trans fats, fried foods.

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. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also. taking these medicines does not harm to her.

No tension. No worry. She is Okay. Blood Sugar is little extra and that can be controlled by restricting carbohydrates and sugars. Eat less maida /biscuits/juices/ Sweets. Take whole grain like wheat /Dalia _Raagi / salads / beans /oats etc. Do daily exercise. This way she will be fine.

Diabetes and exercise: When to monitor your blood sugar

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Diabetes and exercise: When to monitor your blood sugar
Diabetes and exercise: When to monitor your blood sugar

Diabetes and exercise go hand in hand, at least when it comes to managing your diabetes. Exercise can help you improve your blood sugar control, as well as boost your overall fitness and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.

But diabetes and exercise pose unique challenges, too. Remember to track your blood sugar before, during and after exercise. Your records will reveal how your body responds to exercise ? and help you prevent potentially dangerous blood sugar fluctuations.

Before exercise: Check your blood sugar before your workout

Before jumping into a fitness program, get your doctor's OK to exercise ? especially if you've been inactive. Discuss with your doctor which activities you're contemplating and the best time to exercise, as well as the potential impact of medications on your blood sugar as you become more active.

For the best health benefits, experts recommend 150 minutes a week of moderately intense physical activities such as:

Fast walking
Lap swimming
Bicycling

If you're taking insulin or medications that can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), test your blood sugar 30 minutes before exercising and approximately every 30 minutes during exercise. This will help you determine if your blood sugar level is stable, rising or falling and if it's safe to keep exercising.

Consider these general guidelines relative to your blood sugar level ? measured in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or millimoles per liter (mmol/L).

Lower than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L). Your blood sugar may be too low to exercise safely. Eat a small carbohydrate-containing snack, such as fruit or crackers, before you begin your workout.

100 to 250 mg/dL (5.6 to 13.9 mmol/L). You're good to go. For most people, this is a safe pre-exercise blood sugar range.

250 mg/dL (13.9 mmol/L) or higher. This is a caution zone. Before exercising, test your urine for ketones ? substances made when your body breaks down fat for energy. Excess ketones indicate that your body doesn't have enough insulin to control your blood sugar. If you exercise when you have a high level of ketones, you risk ketoacidosis ? a serious complication of diabetes that needs immediate treatment. Instead, wait to exercise until your test kit indicates absence or a low level of ketones in your urine.

300 mg/dL (16.7 mmol/L) or higher. Your blood sugar may be too high to exercise safely, as these high glucose levels may increase your risk of dehydration and ketoacidosis. Postpone your workout until your blood sugar drops to a safe pre-exercise range.

according to my calculations, your bmi (body mass index) is coming to be over 40 kg/m2 which means that you have morbid obesity. In this case, you have to reduce at least 25-30 kgs of weight in order to come within the healthy range. The best option for you would be bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) which would not only result in long term and effective weight loss but also reduce the risk of obesity related diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc. The decrease in sexual potency may also be the result of obesity which causes hormonal imbalance in the body which would be corrected after losing adequate weight.

What is the current treatment? best is to takachie basal analogue insulin like injection basalog. Start with 10 units in the morning add two units on alternate days if target level is not achieved. You have to do self monitoring of sugar levels every day. Tight sugar control is must at your age. Also control your weight and food intake.

I am 27 year old, recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism 6 months back, currently on 50ug thyronorm for 3 months and now Sep-17 I am 5 weeks pregnant, my TSH value currently is 6.37 and my doctor told to continue with same 50ug only, my doubt is to increase the thyronorm dosage from 50 ug or not as my gynecologist told it's fine usually tsh values will fluctuate and no need to increase dose of 50 ug.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you are pregnant it is necessary to maintain TSH in the following manner: 1st trimester :0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester: 0.2 to 2.5 mU/L & 3rd trimster: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/L. These levels are very critical for proper development of fetus and desired outcome of the pregnancy. Hence you have to increase the dose by at least 12.5 mcg to 25 mcg per day, then check TSH after 4 weeks. If the level is within the recommended range for that period of pregnancy, then continue the same dose. If level is higher than the recommended then there has to be a further increase in dosage of levothyroxine by 12.5 mcg. I hope things are clear. It is wrong to say that TSH levels fluctuate. So please increase the dosage. If you have any doubts please come back. Take care. Thanks.
