Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. By saying "I have thyroid" it is not clear whether you have hypothyroid or hyperthyroidism. So my suggestion is please come back with exact test results like T3, T4 & TSH values, then I will be able to understand. For all thyroid related conditions there are specific treatments available, which can help in better control. Thanks.

High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . you should be avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread.

I am an obese diabetic person. Can I start my day with lukewarm lemon honey water? My fasting sugar is 160.
According to Ayurveda mixing of honey with earn or hot stuffs is a contraindicated combination.. Such foods can give rise to severe metabolic dysfunction .. It is a misconception to take honey with warm water for weight loss .. Hence it is advised to avoid use of such combination and drink water to ur body's need and don't over load

Mr Hirdyesh, TSH 9.3 milli units is high, shows you have hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets, dose depends on body weight and TSH levels. In addition you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and low fat milk products. Exercise regularly to avoid weight gain

constipation problem is very common in patients with diabetes. he should increase fibre content in diet, drink lot of water, yoghurt. he can also take laxatives at bedtime as per your doctor. Novomix 30 is 12 hr insulin. for optimum sugar control timing of insulin is also important. for example suppose you take novomix 30 at 8.00am in morning so it's action ends by evening 8.00 pm if you measure sugars after 8.00 pm then it will be high. so you need to take 2nd shot of insulin by 8.00pm. you can take novomix 30 just 5 mins before meal. hope this helps
