Lybrate-user, I understand that you are having pain in lower abdomen, lower back and probably cramps. I did not understand the word" dpo" certain short forms are unclear, better to write in full words. You are thyroxine 125 mcg a day. But you have not mentioned about current or latest tsh levels. Many a times if hypothyroidism is not under control (tsh between 3 to 4 mu/l), various symptoms can keep occurring. Apart from taking prescribed medicine you have to also exercise for 1 hour a day and follow dietary restrictions. It will be better if all the information is given, and you come in a private conversation, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your father's eye problem. Diabetes and blood pressure are disorders of the blood vessels. They tend to affect most of the organs in the body including the eyes. In the eye, diabetes/ blood pressure may lead to bursting of blood vessels and subsequent bleeding into the eye. This would in turn reduce the vision of the eye. In some cases, it could be improved by surgery or injection in the eye whereas in other cases, it would be irreversible. Thus, the best guide would be a retina specialist. Take the opinion and follow the advice given by the retina specialist. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

How is Diabetes realted to Cinnamon?

MD - Medicine
Endocrinologist, Ahmedabad
How is Diabetes realted to Cinnamon?
Did you know Cinnamon is good enough to find a place in your medicine box as well as in your spice rack?
The popular spice may help prevent and combat diabetes by acting as an insulin substitute for people with type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon itself has insulin-like activity and also can potentiate the activity of insulin. Cinnamon has a bio-active component that we believe has the potential to prevent or overcome diabetes.

What You Should Not Eat If You Have Thyroid Disease
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thyroid is not a condition that can be controlled with a change in the diet. However, there are certain foods, which should be avoided or at least their consumption should be limited if you are suffering from thyroid disease. Let?s look at some of them:
Soy
The processed and high-phytoestrogen forms of soy, like shakes, powders, soy milk, bars, and supplements should be avoided. Soy inhibits the absorption of thyroid hormone. Soy should not form the main part of your protein diet if you suffer from any kind of thyroid disorder.
Iodized Salt
Though it is a proven fact worldwide, that iodized salt is essential for the prevention of iodine deficiency. But in excess, it is prone to be very harmful, especially for those suffering from thyroid disease. It hampers the normal functioning of thyroid if taken in excess.
Mini-Meals
In case of people who are suffering from thyroid, the concept of grazing mini meals throughout day, might actually just have the opposite impact. These patients should instead have fewer meals, placed further apart, as many mini meals will disrupt their metabolism, and misbalance their leptin and insulin levels.
Coffee
If you are a thyroid patient, you should take special precautions, especially if you are a coffee person. You should take your coffee when at least an hour has passed after your thyroid hormone replacement medication. If you take it within an hour, your coffee will actually disrupt the effectiveness of your medication, by affecting its absorption.
Peanuts, Pine nuts, Linseed
Having a handful of these daily will block thyroid production.
Cabbage, Broccoli
If you have thyroid disease and consume a meal of steamed broccoli once in a while and likes to take spinach in your omelet on daily basis, it is still fine. However, excess intake of these two foods, is not at all good for you. So, take a note.
Gluten
Gluten is found in mostly wheat, rye and barley, along with most of the processed foods. This is one more thing which thyroid patients should avoid.
In most of the above mentioned foods, the hampering and disruption of thyroid production happens, when they are consumed in raw state. It means that if taken in cooked form and in limited quantities, a thyroid patient can consume these things.
Raw forms should be avoided altogether. However, in cooked or steamed form, a thyroid patient can actually derive the health benefits from the foods listed above.
In most cases, thyroid imbalances are misdiagnosed, or even overlooked. However, though you cannot cure it purely on the basis of consuming and avoiding certain foods, you can certainly increase your chances of curing by observing the dietary precautions.

WEIGHT 1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result youll feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Consult me in private for detailed treatment and to ascertain your personality symptomatically.
