Her thyroid level should be under control to feel well being and active. She might be taking medicine for thyroid, so get check her tsh level in every 6 month. She should take nutritious diet and a glass of milk daily. Give her homeopathic medicine to cure her trouble permanently. Give her homeopathic five phos tablet, 4 tab four times daily to provide some strength.

Only medicines will not help to control it, you should make some changes in your lifestyle like eating meals on time, exercising regularly and eating less refined carbohydrate like maida, pasta, bread, noodles, white rice. Have food rich in fibre like whole grains (wheat, brown rice) nuts, fruits and vegetables (avoid potato, sweet potato, arbi, beetroot) etc.

lybrate-user, Most bakery items are made of maida, which get converted to glucose almost immediately in the system. So called "sugar free" biscuits are therefore no good at all. Better to avoid. As regards sugar substitutes which some people use in place of sugar, are also not really good. Using those often tends to increase craving for sweets. Plus none of them are absolutely safe. Thanks.

Pigmentation on cheeks could be due to Melasma . The solution for your problem will depend on the diagnosis. If it is due to thyroid and if you are overweight then it is different treatment.

I am 36 years male. I have hypothyroid from 10 years. I am using thyrox 150 mcg daily. I am feeling energy less feeling. I am taking amway protein supplement. I read your article about what not to eat who are having thyroid problem. In that you have mentioned do not eat soy bean n its related products. Amway protein made up extracted protein from soy bean. So pls suggest me whether I can take amway protein or not. And pls suggest can I take any supplements to control thyroid. Thanks in advance.

No you cannot take any soya product as it has nutrient blockers which will make your hypothyroidism worse.Please stop any source of soya protein. Hi  First : medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain,muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as reproductive  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 Dr.Amrita Basu

Mr nitesh, please tell me are you taking any medications if yes what are those? because without medicine there is no way one can control diabetes. So please start treatment with appropriate drugs. Also exercise and take a restricted diet matching the needs of your body and avoid sweets, sugar and smoking and alcohol.

I  am diabetic paswnt past  7years  I want to control how is it possible now I am 42 years old.
Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals.

Your tsh levels are normal, & b12 levels are just above the minimal. If you have no symptoms of any kind then need not worry. But if you feel may take mego tablets daily one for a few days to prop up b12 level.

How often should I test my blood sugar, and what should I do if it is too high or too low?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
How often should I test my blood sugar, and what should I do if it is too high or too low?
Your question doesn't state whether you are a diabetic or not. So I will answer for both situations. If you are not a diabetic, fasting sugar twice on separate occasions is enough to know whether you need to be tested further for diabetes or not. Cut off value for fasting sugar is 126 mg/dl. If sugar on 2 occasions is beyond this then you need treatment. If on the other hand you are a diabetic, then you need a much more extended profile. You need 4 readings in a day to know the trend of your control. Fasting, 2 hrs after breakfast, 2 hrs after lunch and 2 hrs after dinner. I would recommend that you depend on your physician for management of these reports. But if the sugar at anytime is below 70mg/dl then immediately take glucose for avoiding crisis.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting blood glucose of 81 mg is normal. Pp 185 mg is high, it falls in the pre-diabetes category. You need to take care. Diabetes is confirmed when blood glucose fasting is equal to or above 126 mg & pp 200 mg and above. If you adapt a modified lifestyle, like exercise regularly, maintain normal weight (bmi <23 kg/m2), avoid eating too much of sweets, no deep fried foods, no pastries and bakery items, no junk foods, no aerated sweetened drinks, highly processed foods and high milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits like papaya, water melon, pomegranate, orange, sweet lime, water melon, apple, guava and pear. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. Avoid alcohol and smoking completely. By adapting above suggestions diabetes can be prevented or onset can be delayed. Thanks.
