Diabetes-Related Complications and Other Factors Influencing Self-management The identification of diabetes complications or other patient factors that may influence self-management should be considered a critical indicator for diabetes education that requires immediate attention and adequate resources.

Transitional Care and Changes in Health Status Throughout the life span, changes in age, health status, living situation, or health insurance coverage may require a reevaluation of the diabetes care goals and self-management needs. Table 5 Overview of MNT. Conclusion Diabetes is a complex and burdensome disease that requires the person with diabetes to make numerous daily decisions regarding food, physical activity, and medications.

Findings from a randomized controlled trial. As with all autoimmune diseases, the body mistakenly identifies its own tissues as an invader and attacks them until the organ is destroyed. This chronic attack eventually prevents the thyroid from releasing adequate levels of the hormones T3 and T4, which are necessary to keep the body functioning properly.

The lack of these hormones can slow down metabolism and cause weight gain, fatigue, dry skin and hair, and difficulty concentrating see table.

Hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid gland, is another common thyroid condition. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism can include weight loss, high blood pressure, diarrhea, and a rapid heartbeat.

A goiter, or enlargement of the thyroid gland, can be caused by hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, excessive or inadequate intake of iodine in the diet, or thyroid cancer—the most common endocrine cancer whose incidence studies indicate is increasing.

Some patients have autoimmune antibodies but retain enough thyroid function without the need for intervention for years. Generally, once the body can no longer produce an adequate amount of thyroid hormone for necessary physiological functions, thyroid replacement medication is necessary to correct the hormonal imbalances associated with hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism usually is treated with medications, surgery, or oral radioactive iodine. However, these treatments are imprecise and may cause the thyroid to secrete inadequate amounts of T3 and T4 and function insufficiently after treatment.

Cardiovascular Risk and Diabetes Patients with hypothyroidism have a greater risk of cardiovascular disease than the risk associated with weight gain alone. Low levels of thyroid hormones lead to a higher blood lipid profile, increased blood pressure, and elevated levels of the amino acid homocysteine and the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein.

Thyroid hormones regulate cholesterol synthesis, cholesterol receptors, and the rate of cholesterol degradation. Hypothyroidism increases LDL levels, and increased cholesterol levels have been shown to induce hypothyroidism in animal models. Normalization of thyroid hormone levels has a beneficial effect on cholesterol, which may be worth noting especially for clients who choose not to take prescribed thyroid medications. Moreover, a strong relationship exists between thyroid disorders, impaired glucose control, and diabetes.

Thirty percent of people with type 1 diabetes have ATD, and Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism affect carbohydrate metabolism and have a profound effect on glucose control, making close coordination with an endocrinologist vital. Most people with hypothyroidism tend to experience abnormal weight gain and difficulty losing weight until hormone levels stabilize.

Clients need to have labs and medications addressed first. Weight changes are just not going to happen before all of that is under control. We need to look at intake of sugars, added fats, fast food, and meals out. Emphasizing lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, heart-healthy fats and omega-3s, high-fiber foods, and appropriate portions can help manage or prevent illnesses associated with thyroid disease.

Key Nutrients Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a physician is ideal to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health.

Iodine is a vital nutrient in the body and essential to thyroid function; thyroid hormones are comprised of iodine. While autoimmune disease is the primary cause of thyroid dysfunction in the United States, iodine deficiency is the main cause worldwide. Iodine deficiency has been considered rare in the United States since the s, largely due to the widespread use of iodized salt.

This, along with fish, dairy, and grains, is a major source of iodine in the standard American diet. However, iodine intake has dropped during the past few decades. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report indicates that, on average, Americans are getting adequate amounts of iodine, with the potential exception of women of childbearing age. Both iodine deficiency and excess have significant risks; therefore, supplementation should be approached with caution.

Frequent intake of foods such as seaweed or an avoidance of all iodized salt may serve as signs that further exploration is needed. This bone mass can be regained with treatment for hyperthyroidism, and experts suggest that adequate bone-building nutrients, such as vitamin D, are particularly important during and after treatment. Foods that contain some vitamin D include fatty fish, milk, dairy, eggs, and mushrooms.

Sunlight also is a potential source, but the amount of vitamin production depends on the season and latitude. So clients will benefit from having their selenium levels tested and incorporating healthful, selenium-rich foods in to their diets, such as Brazil nuts, tuna, crab, and lobster.

Food sources of B12 include mollusks, sardines, salmon, organ meats such as liver, muscle meat, and dairy. Vegan sources include fortified cereals and nutritional yeast. Goitrin can interfere with the synthesis of thyroid hormones. However, this is usually a concern only when coupled with an iodine deficiency.

Soy is another potential goitrogen. The potential exception is millet, a nutritious gluten-free grain, which may suppress thyroid function even in people with adequate iodine intake. Calcium supplements have the potential to interfere with proper absorption of thyroid medications, so patients must consider the timing when taking both. Studies recommend spacing calcium supplements and thyroid medications by at least four hours. Chromium picolinate, which is marketed for blood sugar control and weight loss, also impairs the absorption of thyroid medications.

If clients decide to take chromium picolinate, they should take it three to four hours apart from thyroid medications.
