Avoid Fried Foods And Snacks It is very important for you to remove fried foods from your diet if you have any intentions of losing weight. • Make sure that you do not include fried chicken, fried meat, fried rice or any other fried snacks in your daily diet. • If you completely eliminate fried foods you can see remarkable changes in your weight in a month or two.

Diabetic patient can consume Dates on daily basis or alternative days? Which is better.
Dates are basically high in sugars. If you consider it as a part of your carbohydrate exchange list, then definitely you can have it everyday. It also depends on the timing and the quantity and quality of the overall meal that you have on a particular day.

Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism
You'll want to see your endocrinologist (endocrine system, remember?) or primary care physician asap. You may be referred to a doctor who specializes in thyroid issues (as opposed to diabetes), but your endocrinologist will know exactly how to diagnosis you. The primary way to diagnose thyroid disease is something called a tsh (thyrotropin stimulating hormone) test, which checks the amount of thyroid-stimulating hormone in your system. It's a very easy and inexpensive blood test, so don't delay if you think you have symptoms!

However, sometimes the test will come back false-normal, so testing for antibodies or having a full thyroid panel can also turn up things that the tsh test might leave out.

Autoimmune thyroid diseases, like hashimoto's disease, are usually much easier to manage than diabetes. The hormone replacement treatment comes in pill form, so taking the medication is easy-peasey. But some patients have difficulty finding the right type of thyroid replacement pill. While there are two types of natural thyroid hormones, called t3 and t4, only t4 is found in the common thyroid replacements. For many people, this doesn't work well. In theory, t4 medication would also convert to t3, but research suggests this doesn't always happen. You'll want to do your homework and make sure you get on the right treatment for you!

Patient lindsay o'rourke writes on the tu diabetes group for hypothyroidism "I went on my generic prescription, levothroid, and even at a very low dose it was an extreme difference. I felt back to normal. My energy was back, and a slew of other symptoms went away."

Hyperthyroidism can be treated with anti-thyroid medicines such as methimazole (tapazole) and propylthiouracil (ptu), but the most common way of treating hyperthyroidsim is radioactive iodine therapy. Weirdly, it kills off the thyroid, causing permanent hypothyroidism.

Sleeping 14 hours doesn't mean you are resting. Sleep can be tiresome if it's not deep one. Do pranayam every morning. Before sleeping, do shavasan. Keep sleep time same every day. Same with food. In couple of weeks you should get a good sound sleep, and energy after you wake up.

DM type 2 report is in control you r on inj mixtard long acting do HBA1C DONOT change dose self show your diabetalogist so that they may even stop insulin and put you on tablet or decrease dose THYROID is ok then also need visit to your doctor r you HTN since when now mild nepropathy is their mild stage do liver function test LIPID profile USG abdomen ECG ECHO main aim is your maintain proper diet & decrease weight DIET FOR DM Food Should be distributed into small frequent feeds. The days requirement should be well distributed between the different meals. Skipping a meal or fasting is not really advisable. As far as possible, the patient should maintain ideal body weight. Considering the height, weight, activity, age and sex of the individual the days calorie requirement can be calculated. Of the total calories 55-65% should come from CHO's 15-20% from protein and the remaining 15-20% from fats. General Instructions to be followed Different cereals contain almost the same amount of CHO and so the quantity of cereal consumed should be noted rather than the type consumed. Whole grain cereals are better, preferred for their fibre content and satiety value. Rice Gruel if consumed, should be done so by discarding the rice water, and adding hot water. When consuming wheat porridge, it is better to have it with pulses than using coconut milk in it. Include whole pulses in the diet, soya products help to reduce cholesterol. Sprouted pulses are more nutrious. Fish can be included in the diet, in the curry form. Fried fish is the best avoided. Shell fishes like prawns, lobsters etc should be avoided. Poultry (Without Skin) can be used occasionally. Beef, Pork, mutton, liver etc should be avoided by cardiac patients. Trim off Excess fat (if any) before cooking. Egg yolk has to be avoided by individuals with hyperlipidemia. Milk and its products need not to be used more than 400 ml/ day. Use skimmed milk whenever possible, otherwise cream has to be removed before consumption. Root Vegetable like Tapioca, yam, potato, colocasia etc are better avoided and if used, should be in moderation instead of cereals. Include more vegetables (esp. Raw salads and green leafy vegetables) in your diet, as it is rich in fibre which in turn helps to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Raw salads with sprouted pulses enhances the nutrient composition. Fruits are restricted for diabetics and preferably should be consumed as such than having it in the form of juice. Select low calorie fruits from exchange list. Cardiac and hypertensive patients can take 3-4 servings of fruits. Whenever possible consume fruits with edible skins eg. Apple. Guava etc. Use of coconut and its products must be minimized. Cardiac patients need not restrict the intake of tender coconut water, whereas diabetes can only use it occasionally. It is better to avoid nuts like badam, peanuts, cashew nuts etc. But Occasionally can be used in restricted amounts instead of some other food items so that the calories remain unchanged. Sugar and sweet should be avoided by diabetic patients. Low calorie sweeteners can be used in moderation as substitutes for sugar, honey, sweets etc. Cardiac and hypertensive patients should minimize their intake of sugar and sweets. Garlic, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds cluster beans, oatbran etc have blood sugar and cholesterol loosing efforts. Ginger, foods in rich with Vit- E and B Carotene reduces the risk of cardiac diseases. Alcohol intake injurious to health, 1 ml of Alcohol contains 7 calories. Alcohol can cause hypoglyemia and can increase triglycerides which can be harmful for the heart. Cooking oil used should be minimized and may be restricted to 10-15 ml/day. (2-3 tsp). Use cooking methods that require little or no fat. Hidden fat in bakery products and snacks should also be taken into account. Preferably use a combination of cooking oils like sesame. Ground nut, sunflower, rice bran, corn oil etc. Use of coconut and palm oil should be maintained at minimum levels. Dinner should be enjoyed two hours before retiring. At bed time either diluted milk of fruit can be consumed. Include foods from all the different food groups and thus consume a balanced diet. Regular exercise is most useful but physical strain after a meal should be avoided. Free foods (can be included liberally) Thin buttermilk, unsweetened lime juice, jeera water, fenugreek water, raw vegetable salads made of low calorie vegetables, plain clear soups etc. Pappads, pickles, dried fish etc Canned and Salt preserved foods Sauces, soup cubes Sausages, lobsters, meat and yeast extracts Carbonated beverages Readymade foods like cornflakes, noodles, fast foods etc. Proprietary drinks eg.

Hi, tsh 3.49 milli units/l, is good, but to conceive tsh levels have to be around 0.1 to 2.0 milli units / l, so it is necessary that thyroxine dosage may have to be increased. You may go ahead with the investigations suggested by the doctor, but reducing tsh level to the limit mentioned above is a must. Similarly it is recommended that during 1 st trimester tsh should be 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3.0 milli units/l and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So please take care and thanks for the question.

Thyroid Disorder Treatment - Ayurvedic Remedies That Help Treat it

Thyroid has become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. It is triggered due to the presence of impurities in the blood, which lead to hormonal imbalances and therefore, a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced. But in case of hyperthyroid, you will notice an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation.

Irrespective of whether you are suffering from hyperthyroid or hypothyroid, Ayurvedic treatment has some viable solutions that are aimed at elevating your health condition.

Ayurveda and thyroid

Though there is no direct mention of thyroid in the Ayurvedic texts, there are major implications that hint towards a disease like thyroid that is caused due to imbalance of body fluid and its probable treatments. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes:

1. Dietary regulations: As per Charaka, thyroid doesn’t affect those individuals who take milk in adequate quantities. In addition, you must take moong seeds, bengal gram seeds, sugarcane, cucumber, barley and old rice in optimum amounts for prevention of thyroid. In case you are already suffering from thyroid imbalance, then you must also aim at having a considerable amount of milk on a regular basis.

2. Herbs for regulating thyroid: The herb named Purple Mountain Ebony is purposely helpful in the treatment as well as proper functioning of the thyroid gland. In addition to this herb, you must also intake Punarnava, Brahmi, Jatamansi, Gokshura and Shilajita for alleviating your thyroid problems.

3. Home remedies: If there is swelling in any part of the body caused due to thyroid imbalances, then it can be properly treated by applying a fine paste of Jalakumbhi over the affected area. The juice of this paste can be administered in a small quantity of 22 grams in a span of 24 hours. It helps to increase the amount of iodine in the body which helps to fix various problems in the body. If you are experiencing a lack of energy and weakness, you can use coconut oil for boosting the sluggish metabolism of the body.

4. Yoga for treating thyroid: There are various Yogic postures, which are believed to help in the maintenance of the thyroid gland. You can practice sun salutation, fish pose and shoulder stand for alleviating your condition and get rid of all types of health issues caused from thyroid imbalances.

If you wish to get a personalised evaluation of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you.
