She is suffering from thyroid its 13 how to reduce thyroid and how to loose weight.
Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry. Kindly upload your Thyroid profile reports and revert.

A tsh of 9.38 is high and will make you feel pretty ill but I wouldn't say it is dangerously high so don't worry about it too much there are people who are diagnosed when their tsh is 100 and I've even seen someone post with a tsh of 240. You will be able to lose the weight again once your treatment is optimal but it will be hard work like any diet and exercise routine is. You will have to find a diet that works for you as everyone is different and you may find that the diet that worked in the past doesn't anylonger. Ayurved panchkarm treatment also helpful to reduce loose weight. Arogyavardhini vati -medohar gugglu - dashmool kwath - kanchnar gugglu also helpful.

Avoid eating protein rich foods like beans, Chana, lentils, and milk products like cheese, butter etc. You should take a medicine named febuxostat for next 15 days and then it will be fine. Once the levels of uric acid gets normal then you can eat everything.

Ayurvedic Remedies For Thyroid Disorder!

Thyroid has become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. It is triggered due to the presence of impurities in the blood, which lead to hormonal imbalances and therefore, a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced. But in case of hyperthyroid, you will notice an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation.

Irrespective of whether you are suffering from hyperthyroid or hypothyroid, Ayurvedic treatment has some viable solutions that are aimed at elevating your health condition.

Ayurveda and thyroid

Though there is no direct mention of thyroid in the Ayurvedic texts, there are major implications that hint towards a disease like thyroid that is caused due to imbalance of body fluid and its probable treatments. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes:

1. Dietary regulations: As per Charaka, thyroid doesn’t affect those individuals who take milk in adequate quantities. In addition, you must take moong seeds, bengal gram seeds, sugarcane, cucumber, barley and old rice in optimum amounts for prevention of thyroid. In case you are already suffering from thyroid imbalance, then you must also aim at having a considerable amount of milk on a regular basis.

2. Herbs for regulating thyroid: The herb named Purple Mountain Ebony is purposely helpful in the treatment as well as proper functioning of the thyroid gland. In addition to this herb, you must also intake Punarnava, Brahmi, Jatamansi, Gokshura and Shilajita for alleviating your thyroid problems.

3. Home remedies: If there is swelling in any part of the body caused due to thyroid imbalances, then it can be properly treated by applying a fine paste of Jalakumbhi over the affected area. The juice of this paste can be administered in a small quantity of 22 grams in a span of 24 hours. It helps to increase the amount of iodine in the body which helps to fix various problems in the body. If you are experiencing a lack of energy and weakness, you can use coconut oil for boosting the sluggish metabolism of the body.

4. Yoga for treating thyroid: There are various Yogic postures, which are believed to help in the maintenance of the thyroid gland. You can practice sun salutation, fish pose and shoulder stand for alleviating your condition and get rid of all types of health issues caused from thyroid imbalances.

If you wish to get a personalised evaluation of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Unilateral swelling of leg usually occurs due to local lesion. You will need to check if there is any redness or warmth or pain in the leg. If all is ok, this may be a viral infection. If there is any breathlessness you have to visit doctor immediately. Your blood pressure and diabetes needs to be controlled well.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is present for long time (a few years), and if not well controlled then it affects peripheral nerves causing numbness and pain. This usually happens in feet and toes. Sometimes there may be burning sensation also. Strict blood glucose control is the first requirement and some vitamin preparations may help. Thanks.

If you have diabetes and your wife does not have diabetes or does not have family history of diabetes then there are 50% chance of your child developing type -2 diabetes at later stage in life. However if life style modification done in early stage 8years that is before your child becomes 18 years of age can cause genetic suppression or silencing of diabetic gene and scientific possibility that your child may never develop diabetes or pass diabetic genes to next generation.

My father is suffered by diabetes
He wants to know the fruits to eat and the fruits to avoid.
Most fruits have a low glycemic index (gi) because of their fructose and fiber content. Melons and pineapple have medium gi values as do some dried fruits such as dates, raisins, and sweetened cranberries. So avoid all these and eat all other fruits.

Why pp sugar is checked after 2 hours of meal and how much time stomach should be empty to check fasting sugar?

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
Why pp sugar is checked after 2 hours of meal and how much time stomach should be empty to check fasting sugar?
You have to take a light dinner and check fasting blood sugar before break fast.10-12 hour gap after dinner is required. PP sugar is checked after 2 hour because it is the time required for the blood sugar to come to normal level in a nondiabetic person but it remains high for a diabetic patient

Hello.

Hello Sir, I just read your query. As he has been suffering with frequent motions and cereals are not digesting, then give him foods which are easy to digest and will help him in getting rid of loose stool too. *First of all add curd to his diet as it is a rich source of probiotics. Probiotics are intestinal friendly bacteria which help to maintain normal environment of intestine and also helps in maintaining intestinal motility, as a result will control his motions. * Give him apples, bananas, pomegranate, khichdi, yellow moong dal and more of semi solid diet for some time as all these things help in binding stool and are easily digestible too. * Give him boiled water only. * I hope you find my answer helpful. For more queries you can consult me. Thank you.
