Title: The Relation Between Thyroid Disease & Diabetes


1
The Relation Between Thyroid Disease Diabetes
2
Thyroid and Diabetes, two very common diseases
affecting the current generation. Though very
common, its very little that people know about
these diseases, symptoms and treatment
options.  Thyroid specialists in Delhi suggest
that both Thyroid and Diabetes are endocrine, or
hormonal problems. Thyroid is a gland that is
located in the lower neck region and helps play a
major role in maintaining the rate at which body
utilizes energy from the food we consume.
3
Diabetes specialist state that people suffering
from type 1 and type 2 diabetes are highly prone
to developing thyroid disease. One is suffering
from Thyroid if the gland starts to malfunction
and the hormone levels fluctuate quickly.
4
Thyroid disease can be of two types,
hyperthyroidism when the gland starts producing
too much hormones, resulting in a very fast
metabolism hypothyroidism - when the gland
produces little or no hormone, resulting in a
slow metabolism. This change in level of hormone
is not good for our body. The best
endocrinologist in Delhi claim that
hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause
complications in controlling the blood glucose
levels of your body.

Effects of Thyroid on Diabetic Patients
Diabetes specialist in Delhi claim that if a
diabetic person is affected by any type of
thyroid disease, the sugar level in the blood is
even more difficult to control. They explain that
both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism have
different impact on ones blood sugar control and
diabetes.
6
In case a person suffers from hyperthyroidism,
the metabolism rate of the body increases
immensely. This also affects how our body reacts
to medicinal intake. Usually any medicine, not
just diabetic medicine, gets absorbed by the body
much quicker than normal. This means that the
blood sugar may rise eventually during the day as
the usual dosage was absorbed by the body very
quickly.
7
Whereas, in case of a person suffering from
hypothyroidism, the body produces lesser Thyroid
hormone which in turn leads to a slower
metabolism rate. This may lead to a drop in the
blood sugar levels. Due to slower metabolism,
the medicine does not get absorbed by the body
easily. Which means that the medicine has a
lasting effect as it stays in the body for a
longer duration. Several diabetes specialist in
Delhisuggest that the patients should reduce
their dosage of diabetic medicine to prevent any
harmful side effects.
8
There are different ways to combat the onset and
effect of these two diseases simultaneously. As
both are hormonal diseases it is very important
to restrict oneself to some dietary and lifestyle
changes. They will help maintain your hormonal
level, whilst keeping your diabetes in check.
Once detected it is also advisable to go for
regular tests and check-ups to keep a tab on your
bodys thyroid hormone level. In case of
hyperthyroidism, doctors suggest taking
anti-thyroid pills or medicines to balance the
level of hormones in the body. Similarly in the
case of hypothyroidism, doctors suggest taking a
synthetic version of hormone to increase the
level thyroid in the body.
