Mr. Lybrate-user singh, to increase weight, you need to do two things - 1) increase overall food intake, particularly proteins. 2) exercise to build muscles. For increasing food intake continue what you are doing now, plus take at least 2 -3 eggs a day. Take a good quantity cheese. Increase total vegetable & fruit intake. Regular exercise will increase appetite, plus will help in building good muscle mass and weight. Better to join a gym and do a workout under the guidance of professional instructor.

You can take 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. 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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Without medicine how can we control diabetics. If medicine we have to take, which is best without side effects.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Without medicine how can we control diabetics. If medicine we have to take, which is best without side effects.
Medicines if required to control diabetes in addition to lifestyle modification should be taken as most of the anti diabetic drugs have mininmum side effect profile and can be taken for longer duration -lifelong with doctors advise. It is essential to go for regular check ups to know the functioning of your liver, kidney or heart as many anti diabetic drugs can not be given in diabetic patients with complications or need to reduce dosages if associated peptic ulcer disorders or nutritional deficiencies. Many times such patients benefit from insulin therapy dramatically.

Consult once again with another endocrinologist when in doubt. Even slight increase in tsh levels calls for help. If you don't have symptoms and only blood tests indicate the problem, may be the reason for your doctor's hesitation to start you on unnecessary meds. However, even if you don't have any symptoms, these levels are elevated remarkably. It indicates that the brain is working overtime to push the thyroid gland to function at its normal pace. Imagine the thyroid gland to be a child who has to study and score marks. A hypothyroid gland means the child who is slow and lazy and hence his marks are less. Now imagine the tsh to be the mother who pushes the child and constantly urges him to study, just like tsh would stimulate and urge the thyroid cells to work harder and secrete the desired levels of hormones. The disorder is confirmed when despite how much ever the tsh is high (ie. How much ever the mother pushes and stays awake), the thyroid gland is unable to do anymore and still functioning subnormally (meaning that the child couldn't be any more pushed to secure the marks). What you need to do is understood why child has started becoming dull in his performance only then can you solve this problem completely. This is exactly what homeopathic method thyroid treatment does. If meds are aimed at correcting the thyroid deficiency than merely supplementing, the problem can be fixed from the base. Give it a thought!

Hi as long as sugar levels are within limits then its ok, how ever your father's post food sugar levels are very high. He has to have strict control on diet and do meticulous walking/exercise to keep the sugar levels in control. He can try this for 2 months and recheck the sugar levels and hba1c values. If they are normal continue the above advice, if not consult the doctor who can treat diabetes. Wish your father good health

My wife has hoarseness in voice. And very near I found a small bulge in her neck. My mother-in-law while carrying had an operation for thyroid nodule. She does have any breathing trouble nor any difficulty in swallowing. There was some irregular periods over the last 2 months otherwise she is fine. So could my wife be having the same thyroid nodule which her mother had? Should I be concerned and consult with any particular doctor?
