Hi There are many Diabetic oral medications that can be started for you but certain patient details like BMI, Recent blood tests are required to decide on that. However stopping insulin all of a sudden is not recommended, we can taper the insulin dose slowly and then stop it depending on your diabetes control.

Please follow anti tubercular treatment as scheduled. But all of anti tb medicines are toxic to liver specially r cinex, therefore need to do liver function tests every month or earlier if some changes like loss of appetite / jaundice symptoms felt. We advise liver toxic food like fats & other heavy medicines known to be toxic to liver and kidneys. Atovas is used to lower cholesterol but fats are not given to patients on treatment for tb, emphasis is on high carbs & more simple proteins. There is no need to give this medicine which is toxic to liver. He is being given ace inhibitor to bring down bp-this medicine can lead to cough confusing symptoms of tb. Change to safer beta blockers after consulting with your doctors. Regarding medicines to dissolve blockages, our system has not much to offer for old blockages, be careful about interactions with ayurvedic medicines also. I can suggest simple things which may help dissolve blockages & help the liver also. Juice of pomegranate, spoon of honey + juice of a lemon in warm water on empty stomach, apple cider vinegar plus honey. Avoid all fats except good fats like a spoon of pure ghee only plus a katori of assorted nuts to get much needed protein plus good fats. He must be on bed rest, get some physiotherapic advice to improve the blood circulation otherwise get massage done on entire body. If person is not eating bad fats, the levels of lipids remain within limits and there is no need for medicines to lower cholesterol. Give him high protein diet like simple things like toned milk, curd, chhachh, boiled eggs, clear fat free soups of vegetables and pulses. Get back here for more guidance with latest reports of liver function tests, cbc & total lipid profile. Good luck. Continue giving multivitamin in the list of medicines above.

Yes, sugar free tablets are quite safe in limited quantities. You may add them in your coffee/tea/prepared beverages. However, cooking after adding them is NOT always safe... especially, baking. Some of these artficial sweeteners are unstable at high temperatures. Beware.

Please do a thyroid function test before you are planning to conceive to check that you are taking the right dose of thyroxine. Also based on your height your bmi is 32. Ideally it should be less than 25 but more than 18. Therefore I would advice you to reduce atleat 7-8 kgs by a combination of diet and exercise before you plan for a pregnancy. High body weight can lead to problems like diabetes, pre-eclampsia and poor wound healing in pregnancy and also increases risks of clot forming in legs.

Diet Tips to Improve the Health of Your Thyroid Gland

Practical Course in Diabetology, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN DIABETOLOGY, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Jammu
Diet Tips to Improve the Health of Your Thyroid Gland

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.
