I'm 22years female. Married an years ago and TTC for past 8months with pcod and thyroid. Hormone tablets stopped working on my body and so I started acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture treatment was effective but now i'm having periods for past 50 days. Bleeding is not stopping even in acupuncture. Suggest me what should I do further (I don't want to take any hormone tablets or medicine)

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, 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, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consut doctor on time.

I am 40 years single and my doctor say I had thyroid however he ask me to take yoga once in morning and evening but what does that mean? Will my thyroid will be clear through doing yoga. And also he doesn't prescribed me any medicine. Please explain me. Thank you.

lybrate-user, It would have been better if actual thyroid test values were mentioned. That would have clarified all the doubts. If hypothyroidism is present then treatment is advocated if TSH levels are more than 10 mU/L. Or sometimes even at levels between 6 to 9.9 mU/L if there are any severe symptoms attributable to hypothyroidism and low T4 levels. If someone has confirmed hypothyroidism then proper treatment the only remedy Yogasanas, probably help improve ones fitness. Nothing to do in terms of controlling hypothyroidism. Thanks.

What should be sugar patient's food?
A patient with diabetes should following things: 1) take prescribed medicines regularly without fail, 2) take restricted diet as told by the doctor in proportion to one's weight and height, 3) exercise regularly for at least one h a day, 4) eat more green salads, vegetables and fruits (avoiding mangoes, chikkoos, bananas and grapes), 5) try and maintain the weight closer to ideal body weight (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kg). All these are lifestyle changes to be followed.

Dear lybrate-user, It is always better to do Free T3 and Free T4 rather than Total. The decision to increase or decrease Thyroid dosage depends not just on the lab report but on the status of symptoms. Other factors relate to status of other metabolic imbalances and the presence or absence of comorbidities. Management of Hypothyroodism should be comprehensive through an elaborate protocol. Prima facie I would say, if your energy leves are good, weight under control and moods quite positive, there is no need to change your present dose of Thyroxine.

Hello, Unfortunately, bananas are made culprits, there is, nothing called 'don't eat'.moderation, portion sizes and timings, matter. Which again depends, on the health condition.

If it is fasting blood sugar it is high. Repeat another fasting sugar test. If it is found 125 mg or above. We can safely say it is diabetes. Must consult your family doctor.

Diabetes is the result of weakness of pancreas to metabolize sugar intake. You have to take medicines life long./ you can add onglyza 5 mg in the morning with food and check your fbs, 2 hr ppbs, hba1c and lipid profile and inform me privately. You will be risking your life by changing or reducing tablets. Eventually you may need insulin. Ask privately for personal advice.

Fiber should be at least 1.4 oz / day instead of 3 heavy meals, we should go for 4-5 small mid intervals replace bakery products and fast foods by simple whole cooked cereals, and don't eat carbohydrates 2 hours before bedtime consume fresh fruit and vegetables at least 5 exchange/ day.
