How to cure thyroid? which vegetables and fruits are suggested for a thyroid patient?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
By thyroid you are talking about hypothyroidism, which is due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone, hence it has to be replaced on daily basis by taking thyroxine tablets. There is no other treatment. As regards fruits and vegetables there is no restriction on eating any of these or no special is recommended.

Dear , your bmi is 25.7 which makes you slightly overweight. This increases a insulin resistance and thus will play a role in keeping your blood sugar high. A proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.

My mother 's Thyroid ultra sensitive tsh level is 28.33, she is 58 year old, please suggest me is this very emergency case? And what should I do in such case.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, TSH level of 28.23 mU/L, shows she has hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets. Because her thyroid gland is not producing the hormone in her body. Unless immediate supplementation started, and adequate hormone is given, she may have serious consequences because of deficiency. From that point of view it is urgent. If not treated there may be weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, joint and muscle pains, mood swings, swelling of face and lower limbs, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall etc. Hence it is better to start the treatment right away. TSH level should be brought down to 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. Thanks.

I am diabetic but only one time it detected before a year and it was 375 in fasting at that time. I took medicine for some time and after that I tested myself many times but report was clear. It was 80 to 90 never more than that what could be the reason and should I consider myself diabetic or I am a normal person?

To clear your doubt get a HBa1C testbdone id, its normal forget that erratic reading. Seeing your sugars you are unlikely to be diabetic.

Hello, Get yourself evaluated by a gynaecologist who can help you manage thyroid. Just relax and stay calm. Anxiety, stress, irritability will affect you and your unborn baby. Such metabolic problems are part of few pregnancies and they can be easily managed. Get in touch with me, once you are through with all the needed investigation and the dose of medication is fixed. In a meantime, Meditate daily to stay calm and do not loose sleep over it.

It depends. If the pancreas is still able to produce insulin and there is obesity alongside, medicines are given in conjunction with insulin.
