I am 56 years of age and have thyroid deficiency, blood pressure and cholesterol- what is the right diet that I should follow to keep myself fit as many times I feel run down- I do my daily exercises and try and maintain a low fat diet with healthy fruit juices, oats etc.

lybrate-user, If your hypothyroidism is in control, then all the symptoms also will disappear. To achieve good control TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L. If it is higher than that, then symptoms will not go away. Thanks.

Check for your blood sugar level. One in empty stomach. Another two hours after a heavy breakfast. Also give mirning first sample of urine for routine test. Looking at the report it will be possible to confirm. Avoid drinking much water in the night. Take small sips only. This will bring down the frequency.

Dear lybrate-user, Ideal range of normal blood glucose is between 80-140. Your fasting should be between 70-100 and PP should be taken after 2 hours of meal and should be less than 140. All the parameters slightly above the normal range are consider to be pre diabetic and if they are more than it, it considered to be diabetic. Thank You.

Hi' can be thyroid disease cured. Is it necessary to taking treatment for life long.

MS - ENT,MBBS
ENT Specialist, Kolkata
Hi First: medicines are mandatory. Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs. Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise. You will start better as the levels of your hormone normalises. Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Let me know. Take care

My father has been suffering from diabetes since many days. Could you please suggest him right diet?
if he is suffering form dm t2, then to suggest any diet I need to know fasting and pp sugar levels, present dietary pattern, hba1c% and extent of daily exercise, current treatment with dosage. Without those details it is not possible to give a diet plan as it is highly individualised. In the mean time he should: 1) avoid sweets completely, 2) avoid deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. 3) avoid sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products & highly processed products. 4) refrain from alcohol and smoking. 5) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). 6) exercise daily for at least 1 hour to keep weight in check. 7) he has a bmi of 29.41kgs which shows he is over weight close to being obese.

No there is currently no cure There is no such thing as a permanent cure for diabetes. You can only manage it within normal range through diet control, regular exercise and lifestyle changes. Medication also may be necessary in most cases.

Gestational Diabetes - Know Its Causes and Treatments

Gestational Diabetes - Know Its Causes and Treatments

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes where the blood sugar levels of the body increase during pregnancy. When you are expecting, your body is more repellent to insulin so that a larger amount of glucose is manufactured for the baby’s nourishment. However, this excess blood glucose can build up within the body which causes gestational diabetes. This can lead to health problems for both the mother and the baby. At the end of the gestational period i.e. once the baby is delivered, blood sugar reduces to normal.

When are you at a risk for gestational diabetes?

  1. Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.
  2. If you are overweight, you are more susceptible to developing gestational diabetes.

What causes gestational diabetes?

During pregnancy, the placenta connects your baby to the blood supply. This produces other hormones which reduce the levels of insulin. This increases the level of blood sugar in your blood. As your baby develops, your body manufactures more of such hormones which block your insulin levels leading to gestational diabetes. This usually occurs from the 20th week of your pregnancy.

Complications:

  1. Increase in Birth Weight – Extra glucose crosses through the placenta which instigates the baby’s pancreas to manufacture more insulin. This can make your baby very large. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for the baby to pass through the birth canal during childbirth as a result.
  2. Premature Birth and Respiratory Diseases – High blood sugar may increase the risk of an early labor. It may make the baby due before the 37th week of pregnancy. This also makes the baby more susceptible to respiratory disorders.
  3. High Blood Pressure – Gestational diabetes also raises your risks for high blood pressure. This can be fatal for you as well as your baby’s health.

Treatment:

  1. Book an appointment with a dietitian and follow a healthy eating schedule. Limit the amount of carbohydrates and ensure you have a healthy and balanced meal.
  2. Do light exercises regularly during pregnancy. This helps you to control your blood sugar level. Physical activities which require low levels of energy utilization such as swimming and walking will control your blood sugar level without exerting you too much.
  3. Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

If it is in the normal range, you should continue at the same dose until advised by your treating physician. Some patients of thyroid cancer require tsh to be suppressed below normal levels, otherwise levels should be maintained in the normal range.
