Watermelon is one of the good fruits for diabetics. But advice you to not eat more than two bowls a day.(aprox total 100grams a day). As per height and weight you mentioned I suggest you also to reduce your weight slowly because the more you weigh there are more chances of poorly controlling the blood sugar levels and it's complications.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

usually t1 diabetes is not exactly hereditary, meaning if father has t1 dm all children will get it. But the possibility is said to be 1 in 17. (ada data). Apart from genes environment and viral involvement also is said to be the cause. So the chances are very less of the child developing t1 diabetes.

If you have hypothyroidism and if it is not well in control then its symptoms are continuing to appear or remain. On treatment tsh levels should come between 3 to 4 milli units /l, if not then symptoms do remain. Hair fall is a prominent symptom that lasts longer. So please check tsh levels and see that those are maintained as mentioned above. Thanks for the question.

lybrate-user, Most bakery items are made of maida, which get converted to glucose almost immediately in the system. So called "sugar free" biscuits are therefore no good at all. Better to avoid. As regards sugar substitutes which some people use in place of sugar, are also not really good. Using those often tends to increase craving for sweets. Plus none of them are absolutely safe. Thanks.

Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Agra
Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

The human body works as directed by the various hormones released by the endocrine system. These hormones are essential for coordination of various body functions. From the height a person achieves to the metabolic reactions in the body to the reproductive cycle to the stress levels a person can handle, all are hormone controlled.

Pregnancy is another critical, complicated phase that a woman goes through. It is one of the most awaited phases in a woman’s life; however, it is not very simple either. The above-noted hormones play a major role in this pregnancy, as the baby is dependent on the mother for its initial supply of hormones until it can start producing its own hormones. If the baby does not receive the require amounts, there could be various detrimental effects during development and post birth.

Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid is extremely common in women and there are multiple theories about how hypothyroidism can affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. While the correlation between hypothyroidism and pregnancy are quite well researched, a strong connection stating hypothyroid women being not able to be pregnant is yet to be proven.

The following are some correlations between hypothyroidism and pregnancy.

Increased chance of miscarriage: Women with reduced thyroid functions have double the chances of having a miscarriage. Women suffering from thyroid are at a risk of recurrent miscarriages during the first trimester. The chances of miscarriages during the second trimester are also about 40% higher in hypothyroid women. These women are also at a risk of:

  1. Premature labour
  2. Low birth weight
  3. Increased chances of stillbirth
  4. Maternal anemia
  5. Postpartum hemorrhage
  6. Developmental defects and/or delays in the newborn
  7. Placental abruption
  8. High blood pressure

One of the reasons identified for infertility in women is hypothyroidism. This range varies from 1% to 40% and so remains to be proven still. In addition, the hypothyroid mother will have a set of symptoms to live through, which may be further complicated given the pregnancy. Thyroid replacement should be religiously done and monitored to ensure TSH levels are at the optimal required levels (2.5 to 3 mIU/L) during the entire duration of pregnancy.

If you have the following, be sure to go through a comprehensive thyroid screening before and during pregnancy.

  1. Family history of thyroid
  2. History of thyroid dysfunction or goitre or thyroid antibodies
  3. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of hypothyroidism
  4. History of repeated miscarriages
  5. History of head and neck radiation
  6. Family/personal history of autoimmune disorders

While it still remains to be proven that hypothyroidism per se can stop a woman from being pregnant, there are definitely effects of hypothyroidism on the developing child and the mother. A comprehensive screening and close monitoring through pregnancy are extremely essential. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
