Hello, Go for protein powder without added sugar. Baby weight has to be monitored through serial scans because in diabetes, Macrosomia is quite common. Monitor your blood sugar levels and go for regular antenatal care.

Mr. lybrate-user, From what you are writing it is clear that you have iron deficiency (anemia), hypothyroidism and liver function is affected. It is better if you post the actual report, then I can understand the whole thing more clearly. Even recommendation of specific medications is possible only seeing things in detail. Plus I notice you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32 .14 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). This can be a contributing factor for liver related problem. Thanks.

How Can Yoga Help You In Thyroid?

How Can Yoga Help You In Thyroid?

Thyroid disorders are an epidemic and perhaps most common endocrine disorder affecting millions across the globe. In India, it has been estimated from various studies that approximately 43 million people suffer from thyroid disorders. Prevalence of the disease is more evident in women than in men. One in ten Indians suffer from thyroid ailment. In hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland is underactive and doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone where as in hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland is overactive and the thyroid makes too much of thyroid hormone. The butterfly-shaped thyroid gland is located in front of your neck. It produces thyroid hormone (main hormones-T3 triiodothyronine and T4-thyroxine), which affects the metabolic functioning of each and every system in the body.

Yoga offers a range of natural solutions in effectively managing and preventing thyroid disorders. The twisting, stretching and compressing yoga poses helps to massage the thyroid gland and thereby release of the thyroid hormone is regulated. Check with your physician/ healthcare provider and Yoga teacher before you start Yoga. Various yoga poses and asana can be customised as per individual need.

YOGA POSES

  • Bhujangasana (The cobra poses)- Just like the hood of an alert cobra, this yoga pose helps backward stretching of the spine and massages the neck-region, this helps to regulate the thyroid function.

  • Ustrasana (Camel Pose) – This backward bending yoga asana gives gentle massage to the neck-region and regulate the thyroid gland secretion.

  • Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) – It is one of the most effective pose to gently improve the thyroid gland function.

  • Setubandhasanam (Bridge Pose) –This particular asana resembles a bridge, hence the name. In this pose blood flow is directed towards the brain, which helps to calms the mind, reducing anxiety and stress. It also helps to opens up the lungs and regulation of thyroid hormone is aided.

  • Dradasana – This yoga pose is good for relaxing the back. It helps to calm the mind and nervous system. This indirectly aids the thyroid gland function.

 

  • Shavasana (Corpse Pose) – Shavasana is possibly the most essential part of yoga practice. This deeply relaxes all the systems and metabolic rate is decreased. This helps the symptoms of thyroid ailment lessen.


Stress is believed to be one of the main factors for thyroid disorders. Yogendra Pranayam- IV and Ujjayi Pranayama for few minutes on a daily basis help to keep the mind calm and reduce everyday stress. Nispandabhava and Shavasana works well in both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, by reducing stress and improving relaxation. Diet plays a vital role in thyroid disorder management. Some helpful diet tips-

Diet tips:

  • Increase intake of high-fibre food in your diet.

  • Seasonal fruits and green leafy vegetables should be included in daily diet.

  • Black walnut, ginger and coconut oil should be included.

Dear Lybrate user. Thyroid disorders r many of d times stress related. So I ll advice you to stay calm, try to avoid all d mentally and emotionally aggravating stimulus. Indulge in your hobbies. Meditation will help you out. Homoeopathic medicine-Thyroidinum 30, 4 pills once a day will b a good choice. Report me after 1 month.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Once diabetes develops it is almost impossible to get rid of it. There has to be a proper treatment with specific drugs, diet control and regular exercise. Since there is no mention of her glucose levels (fasting & PP), HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of daily exercise, weight, height, lipid profile & BP readings, there is no way to suggest anything. Please come back with all the necessary details and that too in a private conversation (paid consultation), then I will be able to guide. As regards prevention, it is possible to prevent diabetes (before it sets in), by strict weight control, regular exercise and taking healthy balanced diet and avoiding sweets, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, colas and foods made from maida. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. Fasting glucose 111 mg is in the pre-diabetes category. (Normal 70 to 100 mg). Cholesterol & Uric acid are high. To provide a diet plan I need to know your present dietary habits, extent of exercise and height. Following are a few suggestions: Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise daily for over 1 hour and keep your BMI close to 23 kgs/M2. Thanks.

Hello. If you are able to take proper diet and activities, its enough. No need of medicines. Consult with an ayurvedic physician. Avoid rice, sweet items, jaggery. You can take honey instead. Include wheat, barley more in your diet. Neembolus (crushed small balls, bitter gourd juice can be taken.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is diagnosed, the treatment with appropriate drugs has to be started immediately. Diabetes is a condition which can only be controlled very well, there is no cure. Treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no other option. If you want me to guide specifically about which treatment to take and what other precautions to be taken, please come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, Pp blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present drugs being taken if any, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to give specific guidelines. Thanks.
