Hello, Walking will help you to reduce symptoms of most rheumatic arthritis and hypothyroidism. In both the cases, the more ideal weight you maintain the better it is. You should not weigh more then 53-54 KGS, Body demands good 20 KGS weight loss. Eating balanced meals and eliminating refined and processed products will surely help. Optimising fluid intake will help you. Having plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables will also help.

Thyroid problem can affect both mother and child badly. But if thyroid is controlled, there is nothing much to worry. So, ensure that your thyroid is normal before conception.

Only treatment for hypothyroidism is taking regular medicine in the prescribed dosage for life time. There is no other treatment. If you miss the dosage, you are inviting trouble. In addition take healthy diet, iodinated salt and salads and fruits. Avoid soya products, and less of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and peanuts.

General Physician,
My father who is about 55 age suffering with diabetes. So please tell what to do to help him ?
Consult a senior and experienced doctor who treat such cases. A diabetologist / endocrinologist is the first preference. Follow his advices. Weight control, regular exercise, dietary (calorie) management, required medicine and regular monitoring for earliest sign of any complication and followup is essential part of management of diabetes. So please do not take it lightly. Do not run after hearsays and un authenticated advices.

Drugs like glimepiride, gliclazide, glinides etc are given before food about 30 to 40 minute earlier. Because they stimulate insulin secretion. So when food reached the gut, adequate insulin should be available. Metformin is usually given after food as in some taking it before food may cause gastrointestinal symptoms. But in combination mostly it is given before food. Voglibose and acarbose are given with food as they inhibit enzymes which convert disaccharides to glucose and delay the absorption. This dosing time is not related anything else. Usually after food it takes about 2 to 3 hours for glucose levels to come down. After about 8 to 10 hours glucose level is lowest.

You must not take this drug unless you are hypothyroid. It will suppress your own hormones. You can get tremors or palpitation if overdose occurs.

Homeopathic Medicines For Diabetes!

BHMS
Homeopath,
Homeopathic Medicines For Diabetes!

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition wherein the body doesn’t metabolise sugar properly. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, is responsible for carrying the sugar or glucose, from the bloodstream to the individual cells. When the pancreas fails to produce insulin, glucose builds up in your bloodstream and enters your urine. Homeopathy focuses on the overall health of the individual. Homeopathic medicines for diabetes include:
1. Abroma Augusta: This homeopathic medicine is best for diabetics who have weak muscles, increased appetites and frequent urination.
2. Phosphorus: If symptoms include weak vision, Phosphorus is the best remedy for it.
3. Syzygium Jambolanum: This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for diabetes mellitus. It acts efficiently and promptly in lowering sugar levels.
4. Phosphoric acid: If you feel exhausted or weak all the time, either physically or mentally, then Phosphoric acid is beneficial. Weak memory, forgetfulness and numb feet are also treated with Phosphoric acid.
5. Gymnema Sylvestre: Sometimes, diabetics drastically lose weight and have low energy levels. Gymnema Sylvestre is an excellent remedy for such symptoms.

Sometimes one or more homeopathic medicines may be combined to treat symptoms. Some common combinations include:
1. Lachesis, Arnica, Belladonna and Phosphorus are combined in a treatment to treat retinopathy, which is damage to the eyes caused by diabetes.
2. Serum Anguillae, Arsenic Album and Lycopodium are used together to treat kidney damage (nephropathy) in diabetics.
3. Helonias, Sulphur and Phosphoric acid are taken to deal with neuropathy or nerve problems such as numbness in feet and hands.
4. Syzygium Jambolanum is combined with Secale Cornutum to treat skin ulcers, which is a common problem among diabetics.
5. For people suffering from constipation due to diabetes, Natrum Sulph, Defloratum and Carlsbad are the best medicines.
6. To improve weak memory, Phosphoric acid, Nux Vom and Kali Phos are the best remedies for diabetics.
7. Sometimes diabetics complain of extreme, incapacitating weakness. To improve energy and boost overall health, Carbo Veg, Phosphoric acid, Phosphorus and Arsenic Album are recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Mr. Dhiraj, Thanks for the query. HbA1c% 6.5 and above means confirmed diabetes. This needs treatment. There is no way to bring it under control by diet and exercise only. Hence, HbA1c% 10, is a totally uncontrolled diabetes. You have to consult a diabetologist and start the treatment with appropriate drugs and also take restricted diet that gives exact calories base on your ideal weight (75 kgs) and do regular exercise for over 1 hour. If you are interested in online consultation foe treating diabetes, I can guide if you give following details - FBG< PPBG & HbA1c%, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Please remember immediate treatment is a must. Thanks.

General Physician,
Cough is not a thyroid problem, need more details. You may have allergic cough/infective. Online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin or I have thyroid disease, cannot help a discerning doctor give a scientific advice.

Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines — substances that are found naturally in your body, as well as in certain foods, such as steak, organ meats and seafood. Other foods also promote higher levels of uric acid, such as alcoholic beverages, especially beer, and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose). Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling, called Gout. Homoeopathy offers permanent cure for such tendency since it is the susceptibility which makes one more prone for high uric acid while under same circumstances other people are normal . Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines.

Dear Tanmay, Please do not diagnose yourself. Hypothyroid status and depression share common symptoms. Sometime both may occur in the same patient. It is good that you got your t3, t4 and tsh done. When they are normal, your symptoms may be due to a depressive disorder or other reasons. Pulse, temp and bp vary according to situations and many other reasons. So do not bother so much about them. Please consult me online text, where i can see the attachment, diagnose properly and treat you with your health problems.
