With such a high level of tsh you still not on treatment is it? please tell me if you are taking thyroxine tablet and what is the dosage. If no treatment is being taken then you have to start on thyroxine tablets. You may begin with 50 mcg per day, to be taken early in the morning on empty stomach and nothing to taken for two hours after that. After 3 to 4 weeks check tsh levels again if still high then increase the dosage.

Whether peanut should be avoided in diabetic patients. If not how much one can eat in one day.
Peanut is good source of protein. You can eat roasted peanut, avoid deep fried or salted peanuts. You can consume about a little less than handful of peanuts/day. Eating too many peanuts will make you fat and increase your cholesterol level. Hope this has helped you. Thank you

4 Ayurvedic Remedies For Thyroid Disorder!

Thyroid conditions are conditions that affect the thyroid gland which is a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck. Thyroid conditions have become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. Because of hormonal imbalances a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced or opposite symptoms like an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation may be felt in the case of hypothyroidism. 

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 

Ayurveda explains a disease named 'Galaganda' that is caused due to an imbalance of doshas and symptoms of these are similar to Thyroid. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes: 

  1. Dietary regulations: Charaka mentioned the disease under 20 sleshma vikaras so one should avoid foods which increase kapha like curd, milk, soybeans. In addition, you must avoid foods which are injected with growth hormones to grow them in size. 
  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 in those cases where the reason of Thyroid imbalance id iodine deficiency as it 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 personpersonalization of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you.

Pls give me answer to this am eating dates daily it will causes diabetes or any other problems.
Mr., Thanks for the query. Diabetes is caused by deficiency of insulin secretion plus resistance to its action. Resistance occurs due to excess fat (being over weight or obese). Other contributing factors are inactivity, taking junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made out of maida. Plus excess consumption of sweetened aerated drinks like colas. There is also positive family history which contributes to a great extent. Eating healthy food is never a problem. Dates eating (unless one consumes too many) is unlikely to be causing any problem. It will not lead to diabetes. Thanks.

Hello, firstly get her to see a gynaec right away to confirm the pregnancy. Who wud then refer her to any endocrinologist for her sugars and thyroid levels. She wud probably be asked to stop sitagliptin as itz unsafe in pregnancy but please do this only after seeing the doctor as he wud put you on alternative meds. Her thyroid wud be checked again. But please visit the doctors as therez a risk to the baby also with this sugar level and meds.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if tsh value is 10.4 milli units / ml then treatment with thyroxine has to be initiated immediately, to control hypothyroidism symptoms. Dose will depend on patients weight and tsh levels. Plus she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Plus exercise daily for more than 1 hour, to avoid weight gain.
