you take diet as following...you can take diet for diabetes. low sugar breakfast cereal oats., low sugar bran flakes,peas or leafy green. brown rice .whole grain foods. whole grain pasta. Avoid stress. Alcohol, sweet foods, oily and spicy foods, fast foods, cold drinks, Go for walk. You can join zym. By meditation and medication You can control diabetes / sugar level. DO tests HBA1C every 6 months. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If hypothyroidism is uncontrolled then weight gain will continue. When on treatment it is essential to maintain TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. Looking at your weight and height with a BMI of 29.85 kgs/M2 you have almost grade 1 obesity. It appears that the dose being taken is not adequate. It has to be increased. That will depend on TSH, T4 level and body weight. So please come back with those details. Once when higher dose is started, you will have to check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks to see if the desired level is reached or not. If you do not control hypothyroidism then all the efforts to reduce weight will not be fruitful at all. Thanks.

5 tips to prevent diabetes

5 tips to prevent diabetes
Regular exercise
Regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (hdl), or" good" cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which also decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases

Avoid unhealthy food like fat food and junk food
Junk food is the type of food which has no nutritional value and is high in calories and also poses health hazards. The good taste of junk food comes from hydrogenated fats. These fats lead to obesity, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases. Consumption of junk food increases the risk of diabetes to a great extent and should be avoided to the maximum.

Annual blood sugar estimation after age of 35
This would help an individual keep a check on the blood sugar count thus making him/her aware of how much to cut on food and exercise on a regular basis. This would make a person conscious of his eating habits and exercise regime by taking adequate steps to control high blood sugar levels.

Management of stress/change in lifestyle
Stress management has become extremely relevant in today's times as it the catalyst for many diseases specially diabetes. Managing stress levels among adults is extremely important and regular exercise and yoga can be the best way to do it. Life style changes such as continuous travel and irregular work hours can affect the normal functioning of the body leading to lifestyle diseases, diabetes being one of them. If diagnosed with diabetes, inspect your feet daily and seek early care if you get a foot injury. Modern wound dressings with antimicrobial properties like aquacel ag, which is made up of patented hydrofiber technology with ionic silver, have played a pivotal role in treatment of chronic foot ulcers.

Maintain weight as per your height (height in cms- 100 + your weight in kgms.)
If all the aforementioned steps are taken care of maintain correct weight should not be a problem. Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand hence maintain weight is a key part of preventing the onset of diabetes. Weight can be checked by eating right and exercising every day and also by limiting the amount of food intake. One should strictly avoid over eating as it causes problems like weight gain and obesity.

I am rather surprised that thyroid testing was not done before pregnancy. Because it is now recommended that every female desirous of having a baby must get her thyroid test done. If tsh levels are high particularly in first trimester then embryonic development is definitely affected, causing congenital defects. Secondly during pregnancy if tsh is high there can be affection to fetal development, misscarriage or fetal death. So it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2 even before expected conception. Plus through out the pregnancy levels should be: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2.5, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. If these levels exceed then above mentioned problems are a possibility.

Unexplained Infertility- All You Need To Know About!

IVF Specialist, Ghaziabad
Unexplained Infertility- All You Need To Know About!

It is a real misfortune to witness several couples going from pillar to post as the mother cannot conceive. Unexplained infertility also called the Idiopathic Infertility continues to be a common problem in spite of all the latest advancements in the field of technology and medical science. As it is a known fact that infertility reports to the inability of a woman to conceive after one year of regular unprotected intercourse.

A Few Causes for Unexplained Infertility:
White sugar- This is extremely acidic and highly toxic to the body. Too much sugar in your body and your diet can cause Candida and lead to infertility. Stop drinking beverages like coke and avoid things such as cookies, candy, donuts, cake and more.

  1. Candidiasis- Candida is caused by an abundance of the fungus Candida Albicans in the human body. It can create severe difficulties in the human body including infertility and is most usually known for causing thrush and vaginal yeast infections in women.
  2. Cervical Mucus- Cervical mucus can be another reason for unexplained infertility. Low cervical mucus is one of the simplest yet most powerful factors to growing pregnant. If the cervical mucus is nonexistent, scant, or very acidic, then the sperm loses its ability to reach the cervix and hence is a cause for infertility.

Diagnosis of unexplained infertility- This kind of infertility is determined by an assessment of ovulation, a semen analysis, and a hysterosalpingogram (HSG).If symptoms are observed, laparoscopy and tests for ovarian reserve are done as well. When the outcome of a standard infertility evaluation is average, doctors specify a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. Although assessments differ, the possibility that all such test sequences for an infertile couple are usual.

Treatment options for unexplained infertility- By definition, the treatment for unexplained infertility is, therefore, empiric as it does not greet a distinct functional impairment or defect. The primary treatment for unexplained infertility comprises of 3-6 months of treatment with Clomid Pills along with regular and timed sexual intercourse and lifestyle changes.

Other treatments include Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) with IUI, and IVF. Medical clinics or the specialized doctors present the diverse treatment choices and explain the benefits and limitations of several treatment strategies. The most expensive, but also the most powerful treatment for this condition consists of the spectrum of supported reproductive technology including IVF, with or without intracytoplasmic sperm injection(ICSI).

IVF is the method of choice for unexplained infertility when the less expensive, but also less favorable treatment modalities have abandoned. The optimal treatment strategy needs to be based on specific characteristics of the patient such as treatment efficacy, age, side-effect profile such as multiple pregnancies, and cost considerations.
