Hypothyroidism and diabetes

There are two diseases that have a common relationship, hypothyroidism and diabetes, because both are autoimmune diseases, which attack the healthy cells of the body by mistake, affecting many parts of the body during its development.
However, for these two diseases there are fortunately natural treatments that could control the damage, and lead to good levels, both glucose and thyroid hormones; Therefore, we propose for example the use of;


Deficiency of iodine in the body increases the risk of thyroid cancer, leading to this autoimmune disease of the thyroid gland, also manifested in symptoms such as goiter, and infertility in women when they stop ovulating.


Selenium is an antioxidant micromineral that converts thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), in the body, in order to get triiodothyronine to produce the correct amounts of hormonal secretions so that organs function optimally. Similarly, a supplement with vitamin E and vitamin C, strengthens its medical action in the treatment of this disease; therefore, by attending to the immune system, it counteracts the damages generated by hypothyroidism.


Vitamin C is essential for those with diabetes, because this disease creates a deficiency of this type of nutrient in the body, and although vegetables and fruits such as apples and bitter melons can provide it, vitamin C stabilizes the function of the pancreas, an organ responsible for releasing insulin into the bloodstream. Thus, insulin is a hormone that opens the doors of cells so that glucose from food passes to the body; and later it becomes energy, in order that it achieves that the muscles and tissues work.


The consumption of vitamin E and A, is of great help for those who have diabetes, because these nutrients help to reduce the resistance to insulin, therefore, the pancreas begins to work in an orderly manner and with a disposition to achieve healthy changes in the organism.
