If my fasting sugar is between 140-180 averagely. Is it risky for my future life?

General Physician, Nellore
It is under fair control. No immediate risk but try to keep it under 140. That would be my aim since you are still young. Are you on medications?

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

No problem as long as your FBS PPBS AND HBAIC LEVEL ARE Within normal limits. For more suggestions you may refer my health tips on Diabetes and diet. Fruits or dry fruits can be taken in small quantity as they are rich in antioxidant and vitamin.

Autoimmune thyroid gland and its enzymes destruction is associated with hashimotos thyroiditis. Levothyroxine replacement through oral tablets is choice of treatment. Iodine siluppliments won't help.

Infertility in Women - Factors that Put You at Risk

M.Sc, MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility in Women - Factors that Put You at Risk

Infertility is the incapability of a couple to conceive after indulging in unprotected sex multiple times over a long period. It can also be referred to as the biological inability of a man to cause conception or a woman to conceive as well as being unable to carry the pregnancy for the whole duration. Research has shown that female problems contribute to over half of all the infertility cases.

Causes-

Causes of infertility in include:

  1. Ovulation Disorders – This is regarded as the most common cause of infertility in women. The disorders can be caused due to conditions like PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), Premature ovarian failure, poor quality of eggs, overactive or underactive thyroid gland and chronic conditions like cancer or AIDS.

  2. Problems in fallopian tubes or uterus – Abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes render the woman incapable of conceiving naturally. This might be due to conditions like Endometriosis, previous sterilization treatments or surgeries to correct past problems.

  3. Medications or Treatments – There is a possibility of some treatments affecting infertility. Examples include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.

Diagnosis-

Usually, the initial steps for diagnosing infertility involve a review of the complete medical history of the patients as well as a physical exam. Post this check-up, some diagnostic tests are conducted for infertility. This might include-

  1. Blood and Urine tests: For checking hormone levels.

  2. Pap smear:For checking the health of your cervix.

  3. X-ray: For outlining the internal shape of the uterus so that blockages in fallopian tubes can be identified.

Risk Factors:

  1. Age – Increasing age tends to lower the quality as well as the quantity of a woman's eggs

  2. Smoking – Besides damaging your cervix and fallopian tubes, smoking increases your risk of miscarriage. It is also believed to deplete your eggs at a premature stage, thereby reducing your chances of pregnancy.

  3. Weight – Normal ovulation is hindered by being overweight or even significantly underweight. This is because lower levels of BMI (body mass index) reduces the frequency of ovulation, reducing the chances of pregnancy.

  4. Sexual history – Sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea and Chlamydia can cause damage to the fallopian tubes, resulting in infertility.

Treatments:

Even though it is possible to restore fertility in women using only one or two therapies, a number of treatments might be required before conception is possible. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI): deliberately introducing sperm into the uterus of a woman for achieving pregnancy.

  2. Stimulating ovulation with fertility drugs.

  3. Surgery to restore fertility.

In situations where pregnancy does not happen spontaneously, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) can be used by couples to achieve a pregnancy. It is any form of fertility treatment which involves the handling of sperm and egg. The entire ART team consists of psychologists, physicians, embryologists, nurses and lab technicians.

One common ART technique is In vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a process where an egg and sperm are manually combined in a laboratory dish, followed by transfer of embryo to the uterus.

Prediabetes is condition when your Hba1C is more than 5.7 but less than 6.4% .Normally you should not have weight loss in this condition but if you have you have to look for other medical conditions like, thyroid dysfunction, tuberculosis. You can drink small quantity of red wine once a week. Glucerna shake can be taken by prediabetic but if you already have weight loss then first diagnose the cause reason for same with help of doctors.

First of all you should continue thyroid drugs and ensure that it is controlled. Weight gain is another problem that causes mens irregularities. So, your first treatment is in your hand- weight loss, weight loss and weight loss (diet and exercise). Some of my patients are doing very well simply by weight loss without any drugs. If despite weight loss (when you are sincerely trying), the problem persists, you should take drugs after consulting doctors

2 years back it was detected that I do have hypothyroidism. I continued ayurvedice treatment for almost 2 years however I have discontinued the treatment as the medicine was making me very lethargic and was also affecting my decision making skills. Is there a way I can control thyroid without medicine ?

Hello if one has hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroid hormone tables. There's no ayurvedic treatment. If you want to live normal then no option but to take tab thyronorm dosage will depend on your tsh levels.

Sleep medicines will not cure the cause of your burning pain. It could be because of uncontrolled or fluctuating blood sugar levels, or a nerve which is getting compressed in your hips, or the effect of vitamin deficiencies, smoking etc. Once this is sorted and the pain settles, you may not feel the necessity of taking sleeping pills.

Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.
