Your blood sugar is not acceptably controlled keeping this in mind you can use erythritol occasionally. You can use some other brand of vit c also.

Chinese foods are worst for diabetics:


High-calorie, high fat, high-sodium, and high-carb chinese food dishes can spike blood sugar dramatically and keep it high for a while. The biggest offenders include fried entrees such as orange chicken and sweet and sour dishes, which contain breading and are served swimming in a sugary sauce.

Have this instead: if you enjoy chinese food, prepare a modified recipe at home using steamed veggies and low-sodium, low-fat condiments and flavorings. Reducing sodium can help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attacks. Skip the white rice and noodles; have brown rice or wild rice instead.

Only become dependent on medicines may not help you, you have to follow your doctor advice for diet and exercise. If your sugar are not under control, than it means you may require your insulin dosage to be set again or may require any additional medications.

Hi Sir, I Have doing the bold test then I found the thyroid 10.4 % so Please tell me about.

Mr. Surendra lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 10.4 mU/L is indicative of presence of hypothyroidism. This needs initiation of treatment with adequate dosage of levothyroxine From your weight and height it is clear that with a BMI of 29.92 /Sq met you are in grade 1 obesity. This is probably due to hypothyroidism itself. So please initiate the treatment early. Thanks.

Thyroid Nodules: Tests And Diagnosis

Thyroid Nodules: Tests And Diagnosis

In assessing a lump or nodule in your neck, one of your doctor's main goals is to rule out the possibility of cancer. But your doctor will also want to know if your thyroid is functioning properly. Tests include: 
 • Physical exam. You'll likely be asked to swallow while your doctor examines your thyroid because a nodule in the thyroid gland will usually move up and down during swallowing, whereas a nodule that forms in other parts of your neck won't.
 • Thyroid function tests. Tests that measure blood levels of thyroxine and triiodothyronine, hormones produced by your thyroid gland, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (tsh), which is released by your pituitary gland, can indicate whether your thyroid is producing too much thyroxine (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism).
 • Ultrasonography. This imaging technique uses high-frequency sound waves rather than radiation to produce images. It provides the best information about the shape and structure of nodules and may be used to distinguish cysts from solid nodules, to determine if multiple nodules are present and as a guide in performing a fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
 • Fine-needle aspiration (fna) biopsy. Nodules are often biopsied to make sure no cancer is present. Fna biopsy helps to distinguish between benign and malignant thyroid nodules. During the procedure, your doctor inserts a very thin needle in the nodule and removes a sample of cells. The procedure, which is carried out in your doctor's office, takes about 20 minutes and has few risks. Your doctor is likely to take several samples from a single nodule. If you have more than one nodule, your doctor will usually take samples from these as well. Often, your doctor will use ultrasound to help guide the placement of the needle. The samples are then sent to a laboratory and analyzed under a microscope.

 

Thyroid scan: In some cases, your doctor may recommend a thyroid scan to help evaluate thyroid nodules. During this test, an isotope of radioactive iodine is injected into a vein in your arm. You then lie on a table while a special camera produces an image of your thyroid on a computer screen.

Nodules that produce excess thyroid hormone — called hot nodules — show up on the scan because they take up more of the isotope than normal thyroid tissue does. Cold nodules are nonfunctioning and appear as defects or holes in the scan. Hot nodules are almost always noncancerous, but a few cold nodules are cancerous. The disadvantage of a thyroid scan is that it can't distinguish between benign and malignant cold nodules. 

The length of a thyroid scan varies, depending on how long it takes the isotope to reach your thyroid gland. You may have some neck discomfort because your neck is stretched back during the scan, and you'll be exposed to a small amount of radiation.

Hello lybrate-user. Usually the injection is given to mature the eggs. Better consult your gynecologist for clarification.

My wife thyroids always go high if we leave tablet s.is whole life thyroids tablet must take.

Get to know the correct tests to do as well as the treatment protocols. You might not get the right information from your treating doctor if he is not aware of the pitfalls of the testing and treatment protocols. That is the reason world wide hypothyroid patients are on life long medications with the the autoimmune component not addressed correctly. Do the right basic blood tests for Thyroid which is 5 of them .Not the Total T4 Total T3 and TSH testing done by your Dr. Adjust drug dosage not based on Normal TSH range but optimal TSH levels .Otherwise your labs will be fine but you will not be fine and you still have symptoms like Fatigue, Constipation,Hair loss ,Inability to loose weight etc What patients are prescribed is the synthetic. T4 Thyroxine known by brands like Thyronorm./Thyrox/ Synthroid /Eltroxin which may or may not be the correct drug you need. Because T4 -Inactive hormone - T3 is the Active hormone. T4 has to get converted to T3 only in the presence of a healthy liver and adequate levels of nutrients like, Iodine,Zinc, Iron,Magnesium ,B12 ,Selenium and many others. You are told to take lifelong medicines which is probably never needed if you treat the root cause and the triggers. The lesson everybody should learn is not to blindly believe your drs and the hospitals .They may have vested interests also. Please take personal responsibility for your own health and Get educated about the disease you have and question your Dr. Always take second and third opinions so that you know you are getting the correct treatment and not getting ripped off. Send a feedback with your name and contact number and please highlight your health issue and try to most probably reverse your hypothyroidism by diet and lifestyle and few food supplements without any medication. I am a Lifestyle, and wellness Consultant from abroad and only the initial consult works through Lybrate. I treat the root cause and not the symptoms Treat the triggers and taper your medicine and you may be able to even stop the medication by following a complete healthy lifestyle change as well as a thyroid friendly diet and supplements.

Hi sir sugar patients male can drink bear, if they can drink how many units they can drink in a week.
Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good avoid alcohol totally in diabetes. Because it gives empty calories, can create unawareness of hypoglycemia. Plus not good for liver. So my advise to every patient is to avoid alcohol totally. But ultimately choice is of the patient. Further alcohol content in beer differs from 4.2 to 8.5% depending upon the type, so fixing a quantity is also not possible. Thanks.
