Hello doctors, I am diabetic had recently heart attack angioplasty has done and a medicated stent had been inserted and taking medicines I have a thyroid problem also recently done thyroid test T3 and T4 are in normal range and TSH IS VERY LOW 0.004 I am at present taking thyroid 100 mg tablet what to do further.
I am a 32 year old female, I had a thyroid problem from last 4 yrs, at that time the doctor suggested 100 mcg has to take daily, from last 4 yrs I am using that much dose. Some well wishers saying that it is high dose so consult a doctor now they will reduce the dose. But when ever I take a blood test it shows thyroid normal. From last one month I did not taken any medicine for thyroid and now I take a blood test then it showing t3, t4 is normal and tsh is 8.39 which is abnormal, so please suggest me that I need to take 100 mcg medicine for thyroid?

I am 32 yrs old. I have thyroid problem. Is there any permanent solution to remove thyroid completely instead of taking thyronorm tablet everyday?
From core ingredients used in your day to day cooking like salt and flour to biscuits and snacks, a lot of the food we eat comes pre-packaged. It is only by reading the labels does one find out the nutritional value of the food. Diabetics need to be much more aware of what they are eating as compared to others. Hence it is best to avoid processed and packaged foods. If you must snack on them, do not skip reading the label. Here are a few things you should take notice of.
- Serving Size: All the nutritional information given on the package is relative to the suggested serving size. For example, a 100gm and 200gm pack of biscuits may have the same nutritional data printed on the packet but the total nutritional value of both packets will be different. This is because the nutritional values printed are likely to be based on a serving size of 10 or 20 gms. Thus, you will need to adjust your calorie calculations on the basis of the amount you eat and the suggested serving size.
- Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the body’s prime source of energy but excess carbohydrates get stored in the body as fat. Hence, it is important to limit your carbohydrate intake. This is usually mentioned in terms of grams on food packets. 15 grams of carbohydrates is considered equal to 1 serving of carbohydrates.
- Fats: For a diabetic, fat intake must be limited to the minimal amount required by the body. Packaged foods mention cholesterol, trans fat and saturated fat content on the label. In case of all three, the lower the amount, the healthier the food item. You should aim at consuming less than 200mg of cholesterol per day and only pick food that has less than 1 gram of saturated fat or 0.5 gram of trans fat per serving.
- Protein: Eating a protein rich snack can help keep you satiated for longer and hence reduce your urge to snack on other foods. Foods like meat, eggs, chicken, soy, beans, peas, nuts and seeds are rich sources of proteins. However, if you have kidney damage, your doctor may advise you to limit your protein intake. Hence pay attention to the protein content of packaged foods.
- Sodium and potassium: Sodium and potassium help regulate blood pressure. Hence both should be consumed in limited amounts. If you suffer from a kidney disease, your doctor may advise you to reduce your potassium intake to prevent cardiac problems.
- Read Label: Wwhile reading the label we should also see the ingredients, the calorie content, the presence of preservatives etc.
