Hello. I am 37 years old lady with hypothyroid want to reduce weight. Give me a diet plan. I do 45 min walk and meditation daily. My weight is 85 kg. How can I reduce fast ?
Hllo sir I daily drink a medium glass of mix juice like mausami, pomegranate, anannas, is it ok to drink daily juice as I have heard t juice contains lot of sugar in it.
My lab results are as below: Thyroid function tests: t3- 1.14, T4 - 10, TSH - 21.46 Lipid profile - Total cholesterol 314.3, Triglycerides - 618.5, VLDL -123.7 Creatine (serum)- 1.1 Sugar - fating 184, PPBS- 350 I am also hypertensive but under control with tablets - I have met a doc who has prescribed a few medicines. But people around me are unduly worried. Are their worries valid and should I also be worried.
Recently I found that I have TSH 15.27 and vitamin D 11.6 Can there be a permanent cure for that and can I be normal again. I was trying to loose weight but couldn't what food to eat so as to cure fast. IS THYROID A LIFE TIME ILLNESS SHOULD I HAVE TO TAKE MEDICINE LIFETIME.
- Early researches suggest that youngsters who consume a lot of caffeinated energy drinks can experience a spike in their blood insulin levels. This could make them more prone to a condition which increases their susceptibility to type 2 diabetes later in life. These drinks inhibit the body's ability to deal with a high load of sugar, which could lead to insulin resistance in which the body has to produce increasing amounts of insulin to clear blood sugar circulating in tissues" since caffeine persists in the system.
- For 4 to 6 hours after consumption, continuous insulin resistance associated with regular caffeine-containing energy drink consumption in adolescents could contribute to increased metabolic risk in susceptible individuals later in life through persistent interference with their regular glucose metabolism" says heidi virtanen from the university of calgary, who led the study.

The thyroid gland within the body plays an important role in regulating your metabolism among many other functions. This is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and plays an important role within your body. However, a common condition that may afflict it is hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. It is even more of a problem if you are pregnant as it may affect your baby’s development in the womb. It has also been noticed that pregnancy in itself may cause hypothyroidism.
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism-
Pregnant women may also exhibit symptoms common to other patients who are suffering from hypothyroidism. These may include:
Fatigue along with lethargy.
Mild to significant weight gain.
Feeling cold with severe chills
The thyroid gland produces the T4 hormone responsible for regulating many mechanisms within the body such as metabolism. With hypothyroidism, the production of this hormone decreases or stops altogether. This is important as disruption in the production of the hormone may disrupt the normal development of your baby.
Effects of Hypothyroidism on your baby-
Hypothyroidism during pregnancy can affect your child’s developmental abilities. Many studies in this field have shown that such children tend to have learning difficulties and may even display lower IQ scores during tests. It was noticed that sometimes, hypothyroidism during pregnancy wasn’t diagnosed correctly as the pregnant mother did not show much apparent symptoms. This is also a major issue in the early diagnosis of the problem. Hence, it is absolutely imperative to test for thyroid problems early during pregnancy.
Prevention is the Best Cure-
It is thus very important that mothers be screened properly for thyroid issues even before they are pregnant and while they are pregnant. Some of the medically recommended steps that should be taken are –
Screening before pregnancy as this can help to devise a solution for this condition.
Women with goiter or enlarged thyroid should most certainly be screened.
Women with a family history of hypothyroidism should be screened.
Treatments for Hypothyroidism During Pregnancy-
The doctors may suggest thyroid hormone replacement therapy wherein artificial T4 hormone is introduced into the body. This helps to maintain a constant rate of the thyroid hormone within the body. This can be done even before pregnancy as the developing fetus is completely dependent on the mother for its thyroid hormone until at least 12 weeks when the baby’s body can start producing it on its own. Also, the levels of this hormone should be regularly checked within the body through the TSH or the thyroid stimulating hormone tests to ensure that the levels are at a safe minimum.
