You just need thorough check up for your Hypothyroidism. In Homoeopathy Hypothyroidism is a curable disease, that means you don't need to take life time medications. It is just matter of 6 months. What you have to do is, if you are interested to know more, pls send me your previous TFT test results. Avoid highly fluorinated toothpastes from your day to day life. For more details you can chat me personally.

Which fruits are good and which are bad for people with diabetes? I once came across a GI (glycemic index) chart at a doctors chamber and read that grapes are low in GI but watermelons are high which contradicts doctor's opinion. So are fruits with low GI really good for diabetic people?

All fruits are good for diabetics. Only you have to take them in specified amount. Fruits contain mainly fructose, which is inert sugar and very less glucose. Fruit juice is not allowed.

Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Split your meals into 6 times per day and eating fair and consistent amount. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. No overeating. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes.

Since he has already suffered from pancreatitis and half of the pancreas is already removed, he should stop taking alcohol totally other wise he will have serious problem. Let him attend alcoholic anonymous programme near to your locality, where they conduct various counselling sessions with a group of alcoholic to get rid of alcohol. Many people have benefited by attending the programme. Consult physician for further advice.

Meet your Endocrinologist to assess as he has seen and advised earlier. You have to be monitored, weight and symptoms and ofcourse Thyroid Harmone estimation. Avoid self medication. All the best. God bless you.

I am 28 years old female and am suffering from Thyroid (normal level of thyroid should be between 0.25 mg-5.50mg, but mine is 8.50mg. Can you please me the foods to be avoided and foods to be taken. I mean the diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
you are very right about normal range of tsh levels. At 8.5 milli units/ml, with normal t4, the condition is classified as sub- clinical hypothyroidism. This normally is not treated with any drugs. Treatment is advised only once the levels cross 10 milli units or there are troublesome symptoms with lower tsh levels. As regards food intake you have to have a balanced diet, but avoid certain foods like - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, radish, mustard and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati or roti. Do not use refined flour like maida. If you are taking non- vegetarian diet then take lean meat, skinned chicken and fish. Exercise regularly, that is important. Further, if one is desirous of having conception, then before conception tsh levels have to be brought down to around 2 mill units/ml. Keep that in mind. Thanks for the question.

I am a 55 year old daibetic female, I want to lose weight in a month, present weight is 69 kg. Please advice.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take ? of your total as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity.

Fasting blood sugar suggests she has impaired fasting blood sugar as above 100 mg%. However she should also get blood sugar test after 2 hours after 75 grammes of glucose intake by mouth a level above 140 mg% to 199 mg% suggests impaired glucose tolerance and is prediabetic stage. Wherein approach is to reduce weight, regular exercise like walking for minimum 40 minutes a day and avoiding taking of free sugar. No medications are necessary at this stage unless blood sugar goes up to 200 mg% periodical blood tests say once in two months and hba1c test once in 6 months will be helpful.

You need to consult an endocrinologist immediately for diet and life style planning along with medicines. Your target fasting sugar should be <100 mg/dl and 2h post meal blood glucose should be <140 mg/dl as you are really young and you deserve a long healthy life ahead.
