Brief Answer: need more details Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your Health query and although Dietary Regime and Lifestyle management is initiated from my side but for Medicine Aspect following points needs clarification. I understand you might be suffering with pain, bleeding and mucous discharge. Can you specify what are your exact symptoms? 1. Are you suffering from constipation [since it is cause and effect of both hypothyroidism and piles]? 2. Any associated digestive problem [since low digestive fire is cause of piles and hypothyroidism]? 3. Is your blood sugar, lipid profile in normal range? In the meanwhile, I suggest dietary regime that includes - take high fibre diet,fresh fruits and vegetables,avoid milk and milk products in diet, excess of tea,coffee,tobacco,alcohol and carbonated beverages. - eat slowly,avoid haste-irregular eating and sweet/heavy food which are difficult to digest and cause indigestion. - take less of strong spices (ginger,garlic), oily-fried-fatty food and flatus producing foods (peas,beans,dals) - take old rice,bottle gourd,moong dal XXXXXXX marich, pomegranate,jaiphal,hot water, adequate rest and sleep. - take fried cumin seeds 500mg, fried asafetida (hing) 125mg, XXXXXXX parpati 500mg, mix them and take with honey three times a day. - 1 glass lukewarm water every morning and night. - to stop bleeding:coconut water from 1 coconut and add 2 table spoon full (tsf) sugar and drink. - drink 1 cup potato juice daily for 1 month. - 4tsf sugar+ 4tsf bitter gourd juice and drink for 1 month - 3 pinches dried ginger+ 2 cup butter milk, drink after lunch and dinner for 1 month - eat 2 tsf plain white butter + 1 tsf sesame powder before lunch and dinner and drink 2 cup butter milk + 3-4 pinches of black salt after lunch and dinner - take: elephant yam, papaya, butter milk, pistachio, almonds, pear, XXXXXXX old rice, milk, crystallized sugar, raw radish and avoid tea,coffee,garlic,onion,fish,hot spices, sitting for long hours. PS: .if job demands sitting, make sure you get up every half an hour to relax for 5 minutes and then sit back,make a sponge cushion for your chair. . Again piles, hypothyroidism and weight gain are due to low digestive fire and taking amla & aloe vera juice will help in cleansing the liver to speed up the metabolism so can be taken safely. Please revert back with your clarifications Dr. Munish Sood Consultant & Physician Naimittika

Hi Doctor, Thanks for your quick response. Yes, I suffer from constipation. Blood sugar and lipid profile are in normal range. I do not have any digestion problem in particular, only little gastric trouble and indigestion at times. I drink warm water daily in the morning and take care of my diet. Trying to excercise and lose weight as well. I will try to incorporte your suggestions in my diet. I will start amla and aloevera juice to see if it helps me. Thanks so much

My history is taking Lisinipril 10mg, effexor 225, amaryl 1mg, Levothyroxine 100mcg and warfarin.5mg . Am overweight all my life and have type 2 diabetes and underactive thyroid. Recently abt a week ago my Dr put me on Levothyroxine 100mcg bcz tests showed I was too low. Have been off all levothyroxine a week now & blood sugar is being like 84-99. Before it was 99-112. Between Levothyroxine and amaryl----would this change of no levothyroxine and only the amarly plus the other daily meds be causing this change? I feel better mentally and overall better and have more energy. Will appreciate your input. Thanks. Am 74 and generally healthy.

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism earlier this year (late last year). I have been on three different types of thyroid medicine because the first two made my breasts so painful and increase in size, along with weight gain. Now, the third medicine (levoxyl) is doing the same thing (within a week, my breasts hurt all the time and gained a full cup size). Is this common? Why do thyroid medicines increase breast tenderness and size?

I have symptoms of what appears to be hypothyroidism (hair loss, weight loss, heart palpitations and spikes in blood pressure, shaking, dizziness, thyroid nodules, a now-visible lump, etc. These symptoms are now getting worse. I have had several tests: thyroid sono showed nodules, nodules are palpable, and iodine uptake moderately high at both testing times. However, my blood tests were relatively normal and do not seem to match up with my symptoms and the other tests. My cortisol level was slightly elevated at 21.1 ug/dl. Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin was 22, Free T4 was 1.49, Free Triiodothyronine was 3.7, and TSH was 3.84. The endocrinologist was truly stumped; she consulted with others in the practiced and they were stumped as well. She told me that they had only seen these sorts of results once or twice in several years. She said it could be thyroiditis, or thyrotoxicosis(?), but never gave me any sort of diagnosis. She prescribed propranolol for the palpitations, and that was about it. She released me back to my family doctor. Now my thyroid is much more swollen, and is visible. It has become painful, especially when swallowing or turning my head. My hair loss is getting worse, and the weight loss is becoming alarming to my family and friends. Have you ever heard of these sorts of results? And do you have any idea how I should proceed?
