Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option...Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy....take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day

I have a diabetic patient since 2012. How can I cure my diabetic without any medicine.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Hence the treatment is give drugs that stimulate insulin secretion or reduce the resistance to its action by giving oral anti diabetes drugs or use insulin itself. This disease can only be controlled by drug treatment plus diet and exercise. There is no cure even with medicine. You will have to continue the treatment for lifetime. It is good to maintain sugar levels - like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. This helps in either preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. With regards.

If you are planning to have a baby, then it is essential to bring tsh levels down to 0.1 to2.0 mill units /ml even before conception. High tsh levels will not help conception and fetal growth, can cause miscarriage and bad out comes. Throughout the pregnancy tsh levels have to be as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units, 3rd trimester 0.3 to3.5 milli units/ml/ so please take necessary steps. Thanks.

People with increased Triglyceride, uric Acid, hypertension should not consume beer?
Mr. Lybrate-user, beer contains varying concentration of alcohol (4.2 to 8.5%). Therefore, it is definitely not advisable to consume it in persons with high tgl, hypertension and uric acid. Very small quantity occasionally may be taken. But better to avoid. Plus it gives empty calories. Thanks.

I am 61 diabetic for the last 27 years and on insulin for the last15 years. I have a problem in my right foot. Doctor called it charkoot foot. Is there any treatment for it?

Most foot problems that people with diabetes face arise from two serious complications of the disease: nerve damage and poor circulation. One of the more critical foot problems these complications can cause is charcot arthropathy, which can deform the shape of the foot and lead to disability. Is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.
