Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?
usually thyroid issues do not occur in isolation. It is important to look at relative deficiencies of other hormones that influence metabolism. Nevertheless, a simplistic answer to your question would be to go for what is known as a" hormone friendly" diet also known as" non-inflammatory" diet. Iodine supplements also help, but it is better to have a structured, supervised supplementation regimen.

Hi Your blood sugar levels are very high. There is no oil which is very safe for diabetes. Any oil taken in excess will harm the body. I would suggest you to change your oil every month so that you get the benefits of all oil. Do not heat olive oil as you lose the benefits of the oil, add it to your vegetable salads or dips. Losing 10% of your weight itself will help you in reducing blood sugars. Make sure you do not take more than half a litre of oil per month. Avoid fried foods, eat small meals every 2-3 hours, do not take red meat instead opt for chicken without skin and fish mostly in curried forms. Always snack on fruits and vegetables, channa, sprouts. Drink lots of water. Exercise atleast 30 min a day for atleast 5 days a week. Also you may need dose adjustment of your medications.

lybrate-user, TSH 9.2 mU/L is high, but still falls in subclinical range. Treatment is advised once level crosses 10 mU/L. Sometimes even at these levels if there are troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism present and T4 level is lower then treatment is advocated. Thanks.

Dear Sahista Hemorrhoids can be safely dealt with internal Homeopathic medication and in due time it will recover along with the meds you need to follow certain precautions and dietary changes for effective and speedy cure. For now take the medicine Nux 200 once daily in evening followed by Aesculus Hip 200 in morning for a weeks time and consult back for proper treatment.

Hi Persistent very high blood sugar values may need short intensive insulin therapy. Bring the blood sugars under good control with insulin and then put them back on oral medications. You must understand that diabetes is a progressive disease and all patients require insulin at some point in life to control diabetes when multiple oral medications do not help.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. One of the often encountered complication of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy. This is seen in most of the patients, even when blood glucose is fairly well controlled. But if the control is bad then symptoms can be more severe. If Gabapentin is giving relief then it is good. Only other thing to be kept in mind is to achieve a very strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, Pp 160 to 180 mg and HbA1c% <6.8. That will help in better relief. Thanks.

Hello, Looking at weight and height this person has grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.74 kgs/M2. This itself is the major contributor for increased blood glucose. His ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, he carries an excess weight of 25 kgs. By brining down the weight to near normal blood glucose will come down. Fasting 127 mgg & 137 mg suggests there is diabetes. Check the HbA1c%, that will give a clear idea. SGPT is more, so alcohol has to be stopped. Taking even occasionally is also not advised. Diet should be restricted to provide calories based on ideal body weight (67 X 20 =1340 calories/day). Thanks.

The control of sugar level is disturbed during infective fever. You must treat the infection urgently and effectively. Else diabetes is known to be notorious in presence of an infection. Consult a physician urgently. While checking ducal level you should also check fasting sugar level as well as hba1c level (this you must do at least once in every 6 months).

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 alcohl if you take. go for morning walk, avoid stress. eat fat less foods. for thyroid you can take tab. thyronorm 100mcg. once a day in morning.

Hi my friend are is 28. He's suffering from recurring hypoglycaemia from past 3 months. Docs did c peptide and serum insulin during the episode of hypoglycaemia.

An insulinoma causes the pancreas to release too much insulin, which causes blood sugar levels to drop (hypoglycemia). A person with an insulinoma will have a high level of C-peptide in the blood when they have a high level of insulin.
