Dear lybrate user do not depend on medicines to get sleep. To get good sleep drink a cup of milk everynight before bed. Have some stretching exercises or little walk before sleep. Apply coconut oil on soles and little massage. Keep your bowel movements regularly. Listen pleasant music.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please tell me since when do you have T1 diabetes? What Insulin you are on with dosage? If glucose levels are not well maintained then building up muscles and increasing body weight may be difficult. It is necessary to maintain fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 150 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then with proper diet, additional proteins and exercise, you can build muscles and increase weight. Thanks.

Please suggest diet plan for diabetes and thyroid. I'm confused with my diet plan which needs to be taken care of both.
Avoid vegetables of crucifarous family likecabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, turnip,radish etc, because they are goitrogens. Avoid sweets sugar, jaggery,honey, sweet fruits like mangoes, grapes,banana, grapes because they are higlycemic fruits which have high sugar content which increases your blood sugar rapidly. Take small frequent meals instead of large ones. Take whole grain flour instead of polished. Avoid fruit jouices, canned drinks, soft drinks. Exercise regularly. Be active physically. Monitor blood sugar regularly.

Deat Shaikshavali. Thanks for the question. For centuries, vinegar has been used for various household and cooking purposes. It is also an ancient folk remedy, claimed to help with all sorts of health problems. The most popular vinegar in the natural health community is apple cider vinegar. It is claimed to lead to all sorts of benefits, some of which are supported by science. This includes weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes. Apple cider vinegar do not cause infertility

Thanks for the query. TGL 206 mg is not really needing any treatment. Secondly unless actual TSH level is mentioned it is difficult give an opinion about that. Usually treatment of hypothyroidism has to be continued for lifetime. As regards borderline diabetes, if your HbA1c% is 6.5, then there is definite diabetes, which needs to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet control and exercise. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Since no TSH value is mentioned, I have no way to comment or suggest change in dosage. Hypothyroidism is thyroxine deficiency disorder, so only option is to take thyroxine supplement on daily basis. Taking extra iodine is not going to help as your thyroid gland itself is unable to synthesise the hormone. Thanks.
