Mr. Lybrate-user, hba1c5 6.7, and fasting blood sugar 133 mg/100ml, shows you are already having diabetes, but seems to be in control. Continue whatever you are doing now. If you are on treatment, then the treatment is really helping to keep blood sugar in good control.

Hi Lybrate-user there are two types of vaccination available for Pneumonia in adults. Pneumococcal vaccine (type 13 and 23). This has to be given once in 5 years. Influenza virus vaccine. This has to be given Every year. There are no blood tests recommended for routine TB analysis. Though one test IGRA is used abroad for screening for TB it's use in INdia where TB prevalenc is high is questionable.

Hypothyroidism irregular menstrual period is one of the commonest symptoms. Along with that there may be some times excess flow. Since you are on treatment for just 2 months, it may take a bit longer for complete recovery from symptoms. When treatment is effective tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If that is achieved then most symptoms will be in check.

Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

Thyroid disease:

In most cases where the thyroid is dysfunctional, symptoms arise relating to the imbalance of the thyroid hormones. Conventional medicine generally treats people with synthroid, or its generic equivalent, which is a preparation of t4, one of the two primary thyroid hormones. Some people do not respond well to synthroid and need additional supplementation with t3, the cellular active thyroid hormone. In spite of adjustments made by doctors to some patient’s hormone supplementation, unwanted symptoms may still be present affecting the patient’s lifestyle and overall health. Homeopathic remedies are useful on their own and in conjunction with conventional medicines in relieving these symptoms. Always consult your physician and an experienced homeopath for treatment for any thyroid disorders, including autoimmune thyroid diseases such as graves and hashimoto’s disease.


 

Iodum:

The homeopathic remedy iodum is indicated for patients experiencing hyperthyroidism, according to Dr. William boericke, in the materia medica and repertory. The person may feel very hot, agitated, and shaky with trembling hands and heart palpitations. There may be an increased appetite, with a desire to eat all day long, resulting in obesity; however, the individual may also have an increased metabolism and not be able to gain weight. Given in controlled doses and the correct potency, iodum may help regulate the thyroid and the pituitary gland, the source of thyroid stimulating hormone.


 

Fucus vesicelosus:

Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, helps thyroid conditions where there is an under active thyroid with slow metabolism, according to the boericke. The remedy has the power to stimulate the thyroid and pituitary gland, helping to adjust the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone, and boost metabolic processes. When used correctly, this powerful remedy offers relief from many thyroid conditions and successfully reduces a myriad of symptoms, such as promoting weight loss, relieving sluggishness and fatigue, alleviating headaches, muscle pain and joint discomfort, and overcome many other unwanted symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.


 

Additionally, this remedy also has the ability to suppress an overactive thyroid when given in higher potencies and larger doses. Fucus vesicelosus should never be self-administered. It should only be used under the supervision of an experienced homeopath that can monitor your case closely. Never adjust your dose or change the potency of the remedy without first consulting your practitioner. Dietary kelp is contraindicated while taking homeopathic fucus vesicelosus.


 

Kali carbonicum

Kali carbonicum is indicated for individuals who suffer from a slow metabolism, often seen in hypothyroidism. The remedy may relieve symptoms of coldness and chilliness, pain in the back, chronic constipation, indigestion, flatulence, belching and a sour taste in the mouth. The person needing this remedy may be aggravated in general by drinking icy-cold drinks, which can produce nausea and vomiting. Patients experiencing chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, obesity, fatigue and who are hypothyroid are excellent candidates for this remedy.


 

Warning

Never treat yourself for thyroid problems. Any form of thyroid disease is complex and treatment needs to be supervised by an experienced health practitioner.


 

So consult the doctor privately.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose 260 mg (fasting or PP not mentioned), is very high. This clearly signifies presence of diabetes. Therefore, there is a need for starting the treatment. Because a person in pre-diabetes stage can control it by exercise and diet restriction and prevent it from progressing it to diabetes. However if already confirmed diabetes is present then treatment with drugs is a must. In addition diet control and exercise also are needed. Thanks.

Hi. Getting fatigue soon with less physical activity can be caused by heavy bodyweight. But may be it is not the sole reason. Any heart artery blockages should be tested first. Once fit from heart side, she can be advised physical exercise and yoga as per her health and weight status. She can also be advised surgery for weight loss only after confirming that heart is healthy. Take care.

Mr Satyapal First thing is she should control her hypothyroidism very well. With treatment TSH level should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml, If this is not achieved then dose of thyroxine has to be increased. secondly her diet should be restricted based on ideal body weight. Her present BMI is 25.6 kg which is slightly high, normal being 23 kg/M2. Regular exercise and diet control and proper thyroxine treatment should help. For increasing Hb % she should take Iron preparation for a few months.

Dear Lybrate User, Protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture URTICA URENS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. This means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The Homeopathic thyroid treatment medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are having t1 diabetes, in which there is no insulin in your body, as beta cells of pancreas do not produce it at all. So you will have to continue to take insulin injections for life time. Also please get your eyes checked for any retinal changes from a good eye specialist. It is very essential. Also always be in control of your diet and do some regular exercise.

Lybrate - Dr. Anirban Biswas talks about Thyroid Problems

Hello friends, I am Dr. Anirban Biswas. I am practicing diabetologist in Fortis C-Doc Hospital in New Delhi.

Today I am going to discuss with you about thyroid disease as you know thyroid disease is very common these days and most of the patients when they check their TSH is high, doctors suddenly declare that they have hypothyroidism. Now basically you have to understand what is thyroid disease? Thyroid is a disease which is a cause of a poor functioning of thyroid glands. It is a butterfly shaped organ which is located in our throat, basic function of a thyroid gland is to produce thyroid hormone and when thyroid hormone is deficient it is known as hypothyroidism. Basically the T4 and T3 are the active thyroid hormones.

TSH is a thyroid stimulating hormones which is not secreted by the thyroid gland but it is secreted by the pituitary gland. In response to the lesser secretion of thyroid, it is a feedback mechanism which is developed in our body. So whenever a patient has hypothyroidism, T3 and T4 levels are low or normal. TSH is high and it is compensating for the lack of the thyroid hormones. So this stage is known as sub-clinical hypothyroidism. And the symptoms of sub-clinical hypothyroidism is that patients may have sudden weight gain, patient may feel weak, lethargic, dryness of skin, patients may have other difficulty in managing their memory, routine activities, issues with their sexual and hormonal problems as well, heat and cold intolerance may also be there. So all these things are very common with thyroid patients, most of the patients come with the problem of weight and usually thyroid patients improve after substituting the thyroid hormone which is in the form of tablets.

Now a days, once a weekly tablets are also available for thyroid. Many of the doctors and patients don’t know but I have started once weekly which has a very good response and better come plans and I recommend the patients to take once weekly. Management of thyroid is easy but dose has to be titrated with frequent checkup of the thyroid function. And I am organizing thyroid checkup camps in my clinic on regular basis. The other problem of thyroid is hyperthyroidism which is the reverse of the hypothyroidism and in this, thyroid gland secretes the excessive thyroid hormone which causes the reverse action like weight loss, increases basal metabolism rate, eyes may start to protrude. These are the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. For this also, treatment is available.

Other things we should be careful about is that if we are having thyroid problem then we should avoid having too much of soya product and few vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli and we should take our medicine regularly.
If you have any queries regarding thyroid, you can please contact me through Lybrate.
Thank you.
