What diet to be taken for hyperthyroidism. If neomorcozole 10 mg tablet control the above problem. I expected your valuable advise and diet control.

MBBS, FCGP, DRM, FEBNM (Europe)
Nuclear Medicine Physician, Mumbai
Dear Mr. lybrate-user, If your blood thyroid hormone levels are well controlled with 10 mg of Neomercazole, than there is no need for any specific diet. Only if the symptoms recur inspite of Neomercazole, you can consider radioactive iodine as a permanent solution for hyperthyroidism.

I want to know the main symptoms of thyroid .which commonly seen in all thyroid all thyroid patents. And want to know something in detail about thyroid.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
lybrate-user, Thyroid is the normal gland present in all of us. It produces thyroxine hormone, essential for development & day to day functioning of brain, for all the vital metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of the hormone causes hypothyroidism where patient experiences weight gain, tiredness, early fatigue, slow heart rate, dry skin. Dry hair and hair fall, irregular menstruation, infertility, joint pains, mood swings, depression etc. Hyperthyroidism causes loss of weight, anxiety, increased heart rate, palpitation, sleeplessness, etc. Getting a thyroid assay will help in knowing whether thyroid is functioning normally or not. Thanks.

Kindly get your TSH levels after taking the medication regularly in the prescribed dose for a minimum period of 3 months. If the TSH is still raised you may need to increase the dose but all this has to be under supervision of expert in thyroid disease since these are hormones and minor alteration in their dose can have impact on overall metabolism of the body. As far as weight issue is there, people with hypothyroidism loose weight at the initiation of therapy since there is water loss from beneath the skin (body swelling becomes less). This may happen for around 6 weeks. Thereafter the weight stabilizes. Any further weight loss if desired is possible only with dietary modification and exercise. Hope this helps.

Is it advisable to start medicine post diagnosis of thyroid. There is general perception that thyroid can be cured by developing a healthy lifestyle and if medicines are started it has to be continued for lifetime.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, I am not aware of what you have mentioned about hypothyroidism treatment. This a hormone deficiency condition. Since thyroxine is required daily for brain development and functioning, plus for every single metabolic reaction in the body, it has to be made available. Adapting modified lifestyle is not going to stimulate thyroid gland to produce thyroxine. So I am not aware from where this information is generated. If hypothyroidism is diagnosed immediate treatment has to be initiated or else there can serious consequences. Treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option.

Mr. Lybrate-user, persons with hypothyroidism should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. You can consume a great deal of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no refined flour like maida. Strive to maintain tsh level around 3 to 4 milli units/ml.

How to control hypothyroidism without medicines------------- 1. Get regular cardiovascular exercise of any kind for at least 30 minutes a day every day, or as often as possible. Cardiovascular exercise increases metabolism and boosts levels of serotonin in the brain that can be lowered in individuals with hypothyroidism. It also stimulates the circulatory system. 2. Eat a healthy, whole-food diet, including fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and fish. Eliminate all processed, refined foods and foods high in fat, sugar and salt. 3. Boost your intake of thyroid-friendly foods and eliminate other healthy, but unfriendly foods from your diet. Try intake of foods rich in b-vitamins and iron, such as whole grains, fresh vegetables and sea vegetables. It also recommends avoiding certain foods that can affect healthy thyroid function, including kale, spinach, broccoli, peanuts, linseed, cassava, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, turnips, soybeans and millet. 4. Supplement your diet with omega 3 fatty acids -- fish oil. I capsule daily. 5. Practice yoga, focusing on poses that stimulate the thyroid gland. Yoga poses encourage healthy thyroid function and should be practiced regularly. These include bridge pose, full boat pose, plow pose, king pigeon pose, shoulder stand and upward-facing two-foot staff pose. If you are new to yoga, find an experienced professional who can introduce you to the basics of yoga and help guide you through a practice that will help stimulate your thyroid.------------------------- food to avoid in hypothyroidism linseed peanuts turnips mustard greens mustard millet cauliflower peaches coffee spinach bamboo shoots soybeans and related products canola oil foods with gluten sweet potato.

I have high tsh and normal t3 and t4. The report says I have mild subclinical hypothyroidism. I have done the test twice and got the same result. What measures should I take with respect to my diet, exercise and sleep? Also is it possible to cure it completely? I'm 42 and female. What other health risks should I look out for? Thank you.

You need to start the medication if not started, If already on the medication then you need to increase your current dose.You will need to reduce your weight by following a proper diet & doing regular exercise... however that can happen only once your TSH is normalised.

Once the tablet for hypothyroid is started it should be taken for life long. Thyroid test should be done every 3-4 months to adjust the dose.

In hypothyroidism all the evidence available points to avoiding soy and soy isoflavones as they affect the absorption of levothyroxine which is used for treatment of hypothyroidism. So my advice is not use the soy isofalvones.

I am having thyroid can it be cured or it should be maintained only ?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
it can cured only by medicines and lifstyle.. The case for thyroid nutrition Nutrients that support our thyroid What about soy and thyroid health? Foods that may disrupt thyroid function Find your balance — the Women to Women approach Woman Touching Thyroid GlandThe thyroid is one of the most important, and often mismanaged, glands we have working in our body. Located in the front of our neck, this butterfly-shaped gland secretes hormones that control some major functions including weight management, how we use energy, how we metabolize food, and even how we sleep. For women, hormones can shift out of balance during childbearing and menopause, and even under chronic stress, putting them at a higher rate of thyroid conditions than men, and at various times of life. We hear about thyroid concerns every day, as women want to understand why they may be having issues that point to faulty thyroid functioning. Healthcare practitioners frequently rely solely on blood tests and do not work through the delicate gray area between “your lab results are fine” and “let’s try prescription hormone therapy.” But only considering these very two different ends of the spectrum leaves women at risk for a lifetime of thyroid imbalance, and possibly more serious, even irreversible, thyroid conditions. But before you begin to worry, let me reassure you that there are many ways to support thyroid health easily and naturally, utilizing food and nutrients to encourage proper functioning. The way we eat can actually help, or hurt, our thyroid gland. The nutrients our thyroid needs are easily accessible in many foods and dietary supplements. With the right information, we can make simple choices to improve thyroid health.

Hi. You need to follow continuously few management as well as home care tips to avoid formation of black or white heads. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area.

Sadique, Losing weight with thyroid disorder and taking contraceptive pills is real challenge. The dietary advise, which does not take into account these factors will surely not work for you. Eating a low calorie food or low fat food will surely be not very effective for you. What you need to do is consult someone who can help you holitically - proper nutrition, right kind of exercise (just few min a day), stress management and sleep improvement. Making changes in all 4 aspect, will help bring the underlying hormonal disturbances under proper control and you will be able to find more energy, and more excitement into your life... weight loss will be just the byproduct! best wishes.
