Is there anything I can do in my diet to help regulate my hormone levels?

This is a broad Q: Do you mean hormones in a collective term ? Diet plays an important role in day to day cellular activity. If there is hormonal disturbance due to autoimmune destruction, then there is little to do in terms of changing diet.

Take iron supplement: Please talk to your doctor, but you still have a couple of months to increase your iron before delivery. Eat iron containing foods, take a supplement daily, and stay well hydrated. Your low iron could be tough on you after delivery because during childbirth everyone loses blood and the lower the level you start with, the tougher it is to feel energetic after the baby gets here. ...Read more

Tums (calcium carbonate): The average person needs about 1 gram of calcium per day and two Tums (calcium carbonate) per day will provide this amount.

The kidneys closely control calcium levels, and exercise will not interfere with this control. ...Read more

Less Salt, etc.: Lighten up on salt and alcohol intake to reduce blood pressure. Lighten up on sugar, starch and fat intake for cholesterol. Some people just need meds for both. If you're overweight cut out bread, pasta, potatoes and rice. Increase your water intake. You are young. Invest in your future. Exercise is very important. You will be glad you did all the above, even if you need medication also. ...Read more

I have gained weight and leptin is high. How do I lower my leptin hormone? Is there any medicine? Should i go to an endocrinologist?

Leptin up if obese: Leptin goes up with obesity. Normally, a high leptin means you are full and you are not hungry. With obesity, the patient gradually becomes resistant to the high leptin and still feels hungry even with a high level of leptin. So, there is no need to see a doctor. Best to go on a careful diet and exercise to lose the weight. ...Read more

What hormones cause calcitonin and parathyroid hormone to be released? I know blood ca level has to do with it, but what hormones cause their release?

What hormones cause calcitonin and parathyroid hormone to be released? I know blood ca level has to do with it, but what hormones cause their release?

No hormones: Parathyroid hormone is released as a response to your calcium level (low calcium causes increased PTH). It is not regulated by any particular hormones. Calcitonin is a hormone that has no obvious function in humans (as opposed to fish). It is made in the thyroid gland, but people who have had their thyroid removed do not need calcitonin to remain normal. ...Read more
