I am hypothyroid patient so kindly advise me of weight loss some domestic treatment & any advised?
I am sure you are on thyroxine tablets to replace the hormone. This treatment will help you to control weight. However, physical exercise is equally important, you need to walk for more than 1 h a day. Avoid high fat diet, too much of sweets. Take iodinated salt. Avoid soya products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee.

In hypothyroidism it is good to consume whole grain flour made bread (chapatis). Gram flour is good enough. Nuts which are good in hypothyroidism are brazil nut, macadamia & hazelnut. Peanut (ground nut to be avoided). Fresh fruits and green vegetables are good. (to restrict use of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli). Whole grain cereal foods mus be taken several hours after taking the medication. Tha gap between medicine and chapati has to be more than 3 - 4 hrs.

If I take thyronorm tablet. How much mg I need per tablet and for how long I have to take this and at what time. Thanx.
Mr Kapil, Thanks for the query. Dosage of levothyroxine depends on persons body weight, TSH & T4 levels. Since there is no mention about TSH and T4 levels, it is difficult to give any opinion. Hypothyroidism is thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required every day in the body for almost every single metabolic function, hence needs to be supplemented daily for lifetime. Thanks

Can High BP Cause Diabetes?

MBBS
Diabetologist, Jabalpur
Can High BP Cause Diabetes?

What is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition caused when the force of the blood against the arterial walls exceeds drastically than what it normally is. A blood pressure reading exceeding 140/90 over a prolonged period of time is considered to be ‘high blood pressure’ or diagnosed as ‘hypertension’.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is characterized by extremely high levels of blood glucose (blood sugar) in the body, either due to the insufficient secretion of insulin by the pancreas or reduced sensitivity of the body to insulin. This makes your body unable to breakdown the sugars. At first glance, these two conditions seem completely unrelated, but, according to certain studies, the two conditions do have similar outcomes and could be inter-dependent.

The Connect-

According to the American Diabetes Association, the combination of hypertension and type 2 diabetes is particularly lethal and can significantly raise a person's risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Having type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure also increases your chances of developing other diabetes-related diseases, such as kidney disease, and retinopathy (eye blood vessels), which may cause blindness. There is substantial overlap between diabetes and hypertension, reflecting substantial overlap in their etiology and disease mechanisms.

Genetic structure, Obesity, inflammation, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance are thought to be the common pathways. A prospective cohort study in the United States reported that type 2 diabetes mellitus was almost 2.5 times as likely to develop in subjects with hypertension as in subjects with normal blood pressure.

In the Hong Kong Cardiovascular Risk Factor Prevalence Study, only 42% of people with diabetes had normal blood pressure and only 56% of people with hypertension had normal glucose tolerance. There are many minor lifestyle changes that can lower your blood pressure and blood sugar.

A brisk walk for 30 to 40 minutes every day, or any aerobic activity can make your heart healthier. In addition to lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, physical activity can strengthen the heart muscle and may reduce arterial stiffness.

You may need minor modifications in your diet like, cutting out sugar salt, high-fat meats etc. You can take several servings of vegetables, low-fat dairy products, leans meats and fish or meat substitutes, fruits, whole (not processed) foods, whole-grain pastas, breads, and brown rice etc. While some people can improve their type 2 diabetes and hypertension with lifestyle changes, most require medication.

Depending on their overall health, some people may need more than one medication to reduce their risk. Consult your doctor to choose best possible medicines for your diabetes and / or blood pressure control. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Both huminsulin & novomix are ok. But huminsulin is cheaper. Now, the choice is your's. But remember: at your age, beware of hypoglycemia when you take insulin, no matter which one.

Please do not worry. You left smoking before 6 months. Therefore, the present problem do not have any connection with quitting smoking. Diabetics could be one reason. Please consult your diabetologist. Take care.

Is permanent treatment possible in homeopathy for hypothyroidism that no need to take lifetime medicine?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a condition arising due to deficiency of the hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is constantly required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus it is essential for vital metabolic activities in the body. So there a constant need for it. Hence, it has to be supplied from outside and that too for life time. There is no other drug that can replace it. Taking thyroxine hormone is the only treatment. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is necessary to bring TSH down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only one will be freem from all the troublesome symptoms. Hence, if TSH is 6.5 mU/L, then it should be reduced to the value mentioned above. Therefore, there is a need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken now. After increasing the dose TSH should be checked 6 weeks later to see if desired level is reached. Thanks.
