FOR YOUR MOM. Most of the time, underlying the thyroid disorder is years of abuse of our body. When you don't take proper care of your own nutrition, sleep and invest time for proper exercise, at some point various hormonal systems of body go out of sync. It is very important to have your thyroid hormones as tablets as per your doctor's prescription and periodic check up. And just doing it may reduce your weight little bit. But it will not be enough. You need to work on root cause of this issue. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibres, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Go to you tube and type 8 minute workout and you will see many options. Pick one which you like and can do. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some expert who can help you in this over extended period of time. Best wishes.

Blood sugars keep fluctuating from time to time due to many factors however with the help of your doctor you will have to keep it within possibly normal range as fixed by your doctor - normally 100-126 fasting and 126- 140 2 hours after principal morning meal. And perodic hba1c - 6.5 to control fluctuations buying a glucometer for self monitoring is ideal. It is better that you keep a diary and record sugar levlel 2 - 5 times, 1. Fasting, 2. Post breakfast 3. Before dinner one one day 2 hours after lunch and after dinner on some other day as advised by your doctor depending on control hba1c once in 3-6 months as advised take these reports to your doctor regularly for some adjustments or modifications of your daily routine, food intake timings and medications etc. Make it a habit you will gain more and more knowledge of diabetes and control this will avoid possible long term complications or at least postpone them so you remain healthy and fit.

Hi, She is 53years old. She is an thyroid patient. And she gets frequent pain under the foot. Somewhat bearable pain....
Here you didn't mention her weight & height proportion. If she is under more wt, also due to her age factor also, chances r there to get arthritic pains. Here if she doesn't have any other joint pains other than this foot, then it might b due to her weight . If it in the case, she can try taking (homeopathic medicine) rhus. Tox 200 potency daily 2-3 times (5-8 pills at a time, has to chew n swallow without water) for 1 week n let her observe the progress n let me know.

Hi, It would have been useful if you mentioned the reasons why Thyronorm was not suiting you? Further you did not mention the results of your thyroid function tests. I feel that based on your symptoms your Thyroid function tests may be abnormal. The symptoms that you are describing are of hypothyroidism, so looks like the dose of Thyronorm was not sufficient. Plan: Please get your TSH, fT3 and fT4 done. See an endocrinologist who can prescribe alternative brands of the thyroxine hormone drug. Thank you.

Once you conceive you can stop glycomet and till than exercise regularly till you have sweating and at any point of time you have giddines than get your sugar checked at that time and concentrate on weight reduction and continuation of glycomet depends on how much insulin resistance you have and how much obese you are.

Study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters
A new study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters.

The university of california san francisco study found that living in a neighborhood with resources to support exercise and with access to healthy food was linked to a lower incidence of type 2 diabetes, medpage today reported. 

Researchers found that 12 percent of the more than 5, 000 people in the study developed diabetes within the average 8.9 years of follow-up, but patients who lived in areas that had access to more physical activity resources and healthy foods had a lower risk of developing diabetes. 

The social environment of a neighborhood was not associated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes, found the researchers, who were led by paul christine. 

Researchers nancy adler and aric prather wrote in an accompanying editorial that they do not yet know what elements of neighborhoods are most essential for generating better health, these researchers provide important clues about which elements have an effect and for whom. 

They noted that the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus is a combination of both person and place, and the national strategies need to understand and intervene across these levels. 

Christine and colleagues also found that environmental resources mattered differently to those with higher and lower incomes. Poorer patients in areas being viewed as having less social activity and as being more dangerous to go outside in were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, but overall, neighborhood safety and social cohesion were" largely unassociated" with diabetes. 

The results suggest that modifying specific features of neighborhood environments, including increasing the availability of healthy foods and physical activity resources, may help to mitigate the risk for t2dm, added researchers.

Ayurveda,
High protein diet or improper excretion due to kidney disease may lead to high uric acid concentration in blood. If allopathic treatment is not suiting u. You must switch over to ayurvedic treatment, which is safe and 100% effectively.

Diabetes occurs because of lack of insulin. Hence that's the only treatment. You cannot stop that or replace it.
