The only and best method to control blood glucose is taking modern meicines either oral or insulin injections or both. The drug mentioned by you is probaly only a supportive medicine. Ayurvedic drugs do not go through through clinical trial studies.. So my advise is stick to present treatment. It can be adjusted for better control. If you want any help please come with specific details like fasting, pp blood glucose levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise then I can guide.

Dose depends on body weight and tsh depends on compliance to drug and correct dose. You should continue as thyronorm 50 ug daily monday to friday and 100 ug on saturday and sundays. But take medicines regularly empty stomach maintain 45 minutes gap between medicine and breakfast.

When on treatment with thyroxine, tsh levels should come between 3 to 4 milli units, for better control and disappearance of all symptoms. Since your tsh level is 7.41 milli uits/ml, it shows the dose of thyroxine is not adequate. Dose has to go up. In fact in the beginning itself dose should have been higher. If dose is not increased, then most symptoms may come back.

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Your mother troubled with disappointment and therefore all these trouble. Motivate her. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Hye. Thankyou for the query. You must understand that keeping long gaps between meals and eating consequently heavy meals is one of the common reasons for acidity. Eat small frequent meals. Reduce the main meal by a small amount. Avoid oily or fried foods. Avoid taking glassfuls of water while eating foods. Avoid lying down as soon as soon you have eaten. Stress management is crucial too. These tips will help manage sugar levels as well. Avoid tea, coffee, cigarette and alcohol. Take jeera water after meals.

Madam you are under the care of a good experienced doctor. Your thhyroid hormone levels are with in normal limit. Your sugar levels (fasting is a bit high, are also good. You have not mentioned the hba1c%. But looking at your height and weight you are having grade 2 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be 51 kgs, which means you are having 39 kgs extra. For this you need to look at reducing the weight by at least 5 to 8% in next six to eight months. One can reduce about 1/2 kg per week by reducing daily intake by 500 calories, plus doing regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day. In fact your dietary intake has to be based on your ideal body weight and not on your current weight.

Every fruit contains natural sugaar in themm.the quantity of fruit and the form in which it is consumed affects your blood sugar.for ex Apple is low in sugars but when you have it in juice form ,it raises the sugar at a fast pace. Other fruits like banana,chickoo,mango when consumed have to be exchanged for the roti or rice taken in that particular meal. Remember to include seasonal fruits but within the allowances
