Hypothyroidism is condition which needs to be treated for life time with thyroxine tablets, as mentioned by you. This is a hormone deficiency condition, can only be treated by replacing that hormone from outside. Foods to avoid include soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Consume more green vegetables (other than mentioned), fruits, use whole grain flour for breads (rotis), use more of onions garlic.

Hello lybrate-user, there is no magic that can help to reduce the belly fat. Eating right and exercise is the only thing that helps. Being a diabetic, its necessary to manage your sugars & body weight as a priority. Increase your protein and calcium intake by including nuts, pulses, dals, dairy products, lean meats - fish and chicken, eggs (if non-vegeterian). These will help you in managing the sugars as well as solve the deficiencies.

Laptops can cause Male Infertility

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology

Laptops can cause Male Infertility
Laptops overheat the genital area and have been linked to male infertility. When the testicles overheat, they tend to produce less sperm. Studies have shown that laptop computers that we hold on our laps for extended periods of time are enough to cause damage to sperm. We recommend placing laptops on a table or desk to avoid these issues plus it's better for posture.

Her sugar is a bit low. Its good that she is active. Let her be that way. You can test for her vit. D and vit. B12 levels as these can cause weakness and pains. Also check her haemoglobin levels. Her medicines for diabetes will have to be lowered.

Thyroid Gland - Diet Tips to Improve Health Of It!

Thyroid Gland - Diet Tips to Improve Health Of It!

The thyroid gland in your body is responsible for controlling and secreting those hormones that help in your natural growth and development. These hormones are crucial in regulating some of the most important functions of your body,  such as your heart rate, breathing, your body weight, your menstrual cycle and your muscle power to name a few. 

Problems of the thyroid gland (such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism) can hamper all of these vital functions, and these problems usually arise due to a poor diet. However, your diet can also help in improving the health of your thyroid gland. Here are some diet tips to help you out:

  1. Include lots of iodine in your diet: Iodine is a  nutritive element, without which your thyroid gland will not be able to function at all, being its building block. Therefore, iodine rich foods, such as fortified salt, eggs, seaweed and other dairy products should be a part of your diet. Along with iodine, zinc, selenium, copper and iron are other very important elements that should be a part of your diet too. 
  2. Plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants help: Since stress (blame it on cortisol, the stress hormone that overworks your thyroid in case of chronic stress) plays a major role in hampering the proper functioning of your thyroid gland, eliminating it and detoxifying yourself is extremely important. This can be done by  including plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants in your diet. White meat, fishes like tuna, peanuts, brown rice and fruits such as goji berries and wild blueberries can be of great help in this regard.
  3. Say no to soy: Soy is one of the main culprits behind the malfunctioning of your thyroid gland, as it contains an element known as isoflavones, which can reduce the iodine reserve in the gland. Apart from that, vegetables that belong to the brassica family such as cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are linked to causing goitre and must be avoided. Consumption of gluten must be avoided too, as it can cause autoimmune thyroid disorders, celiac disease and hormonal imbalances.
  4. Enjoy your daily meals: In today's fast paced world a stress-free meal is a thing of the past as most people are in a rush to get done with their breakfast, lunch or dinner. This hampers your digestive function and also puts stress on your thyroid glands. The best way to eat is to sit on a table and relax, enjoying every morsel you swallow. This ensures your thyroid remains healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Firstly Diabetes is a disease which can be controlled, not cured. He will need to have a strict diet control along with medication. There are many drugs available which can be given to him. If medicines do not work then Insulin can be tried. Don't loose hope, consult a diabetologist and follow his advice.

I have a diabetic patient since 2012. How can I cure my diabetic without any medicine.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Hence the treatment is give drugs that stimulate insulin secretion or reduce the resistance to its action by giving oral anti diabetes drugs or use insulin itself. This disease can only be controlled by drug treatment plus diet and exercise. There is no cure even with medicine. You will have to continue the treatment for lifetime. It is good to maintain sugar levels - like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. This helps in either preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. With regards.

My Uric Acid is high and Calcium is low. I need suggestions or advice fort some medicine and precautions.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My Uric Acid is high and Calcium is low. I need suggestions or advice fort some medicine and precautions.
Uric acid is produced from the natural breakdown of your body's cells and from the foods you eat. Most of the uric acid is filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine. ... High levels of uric acid in the blood can cause solid crystals to form within joints. This causes a painful condition called gout.Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. Other less common causes are a diet high in purine-containing items or your body producing too much uric acid.To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines.A healthy diet based on lots of fruits and vegetables can include high-purine vegetables, such as asparagus, spinach, peas, cauliflower or mushrooms. You can also eat beans or lentils, which are moderately high in purines but are also a good source of protein. Organ and glandular meats.

Iam having thyroid since two months with 6.5 is this dangerous any precautions to be taken best doctor to consult.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
tsh value of 6.5 milli units / ml, is subclinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is given. If you have any symptoms related to hypothyroidism, then treatment may be initiated. Precautions are: take iodinated salt, avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard, radish and coffee. Exercise regularly to prevent weight gain. Check tsh levels periodically once in 6 months, to see any change has occurred. When level goes above 10 milli units or if symptoms appear then treatment needs to be initiated.

What you refer acne is basically boil which is common in diabetic First is take good control of sugar level by regular blood check and adjust medicine dose under guidance of your physician if still happening then take antibiotic course as Augmentin 625 mg twice daily for 5 days Also T bact cream to apply over those boils and even use it at finger tips, nostrils, ears margin, and anus rim At these 4 locations apply T bact cream regularly for 1 month that will reduce the recurrence of boils Still I recommend to send pics if boils to get better idea of the condition.

If you have blood sugars in the range of 350-500 then you should not leave insulin injections. In fact your insulin dosage or type of insulin needs to be changed. Some times oral diabetic drugs can also be added. Some times diet/exercise failure /stress/infection/ thyroid dysfunction in the body does not allow your sugars to come under control.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine will depend upon your fasting and postprandial blood report.
