you should be take dose of tab. thyronorm 12.5mcg according to your reports. Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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. flax oil, 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, go for walk. avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Jowar is good and high fibre food for diabetes. Along with diet restriction exercise is also must for weight reduction. Keep your blood sugar and thyroid hormone controlled.

Dear lybrate user, your daughter needs to get rid of her ocd and needs treatment for ocd, pcod and obesity. Marriage is not the solution, it will create more problems in her life, if she gets married without getting treated for her ailments. She probably has low self esteem and may have a few suppressed emotions. It is advisable that you take her to a counsellor. The counsellor will help her to open up and express her feelings. The counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes and thereby will help her have higher self esteem and confidence. This will motivate her to take care of her body and mind and thereby help her in reducing her weight and discard thoughts which are harmful.

Hello good to hear you are on physical activity and happy to hear you have reduced weight. Keep up the exercise going. It looks like all are in control when you take medicine. This condition has to be maintained when you stop using medicine. So, I suggest, consult your personal doctor and then based on his recommendation you follow the same. We know heavy medication leads to side effects. Please add protein with green tea, fiber and multivitamins supplements in your diet. Let me help you with more information. Have a nice day.

Can anyone please explain what is the meaning of hba1 level of diabetes patients.
Hba1c is glycosylated hemoglobin which indicates sugar levels over last 3 mths. Whereas fasting, post prandial sugar tests give idea about levels on that particular day only.

Red meat is probably the most well known foods high in uric acid causing purines. Try to avoid beef, lamb, venison and mutton and instead replace them with white meats such as chicken or duck, which don't contain as many purines but should be eaten only occasionally. Even better replacements are vegetarian alternatives. Also alcohol. Repeat test after fasting overnight.

Hello, loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol too. You need to bring a little change in your life style and routine and diet. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. High fibre diet including greens and whole grains are to be included in the diet. No long grapes and skipping of meals. No over eating. Avoid junk food. Take small and frequent meals. You can consult me privately online on Lybrate I will you more suggestions.

Hello, blood sugar level of 320 mg (fasting or pp not mentioned) is very high, suggesting uncontrolled diabetes. Needs urgent treatment so as to control the sugar level. It is essential to bring fasting glucose to about 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. Otherwise a lot of long term complications related to diabetes can set in causing severe difficulties. Foods to be avoided are sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, items made out of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Should exercise daily at least for 1 hour, brisk walking is a better option. If you need any specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with all the above details plus her weight, height and dietary pattern, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

I have diabetes since last November 2016 and had check up with the doctor who has prescribed Glycomet GP1 daily one tablet. Further I have been doing my blood check regularly and my fasting blood sugar is 137 on 05/02/2017 and on full stomach it is 200. Is it OK if I continue with the same medicine or whether you may like to prescribe some other medicine in its place. How is he position of blood sugar whether it is OK, High, Medium. I am having regular walk of 10 kms daily. I have given up all sweet items containing sugar. I have also not eating rice as far as possible. Any good advice Sir from your side.

You r absolutely fine sir. Your walking 10 km is a bit too much for your age, but if you r comfortable its fine. Blood sugar is you can say just a borderline medium. Do a blood test after 10-15 days n get bk to me. Glycomet GP 1 is a time tested med. Anytime you csn get in touch wid me for a prepaid chat n advice.
