Hi, Frequency of urination is due to a few reasons 1) Diabetes mellitus 2) Diabetes insipidus 3) Irritable /overactive bladder 4) urine infection 5) drinking coffee and tea (they are diuretics) 6) drinking lots of fluids I am not sure if you are experiencing any other symptoms like increased thirst, increased hunger, losing weight, burning sensation when urinating, fever, Lower abdominal pain etc. You could get a fasting and post prandial blood glucose done to rule out diabetes. A complete urine examination with microscopy will rule out any urine infection. It would also help if you could consult a physician or urologist to diagnose your problem and who can provide appropriate treatment. Thank you.

Rosemary And Sage • Mix rosemary and sage in coconut oil or even coconut milk and apply it in the affected areas of your head. • Leave it there for 15 to 20 minutes and wash it off. • Repeat this process four times a day for a few weeks to get rid of bald patches. Egg • Apply beaten egg on your scalp at least two to three times a week to help in promoting hair growth. • It works even better when mixed with olive oil. Lemon And Pepper Cons • Take 8 to 10 pepper cons and seeds of seven to eight lemons and crush them together. • Use this powder directly or you can also add little water to make it smooth paste and then apply it on your bald areas twice a day. • Repeat for a few weeks and this remedy will help in improving blood circulation and stimulate hair growth.

Female Infertility Treatment, Natural Fertility Enhancement with Homeopathy

BHMS

Female Infertility Treatment, Natural Fertility Enhancement with Homeopathy
There are many causes for infertility in male and female patients . On average 10% of the reproductive couples may be infertile.

For our therapeutic purposes, we concentrate on few very common curable factors which contribute to a large population of childlessness.

In female infertility important factors are :

Ovulation factors / hormonal factors
Tubal factors – e.g. blocked fallopian tubes / damaged tubes
Recurrent abortive factors - e.g. toxoplasma infection
Nutritional factors
Endometriosis
Infective factors e.g. – genital TB / Mycoplasma infection / Gonococal infection.
Male Infertility Factor and Treatment

One single factor of semen and sperm quality matters.
Common causes are :

Oligospermia (number below 40 million /ml)
Oligospermaesthenia (poor motility of sperm)
Blocked vas.
We tried to cover up to formulate for male and female causes. In male, we devised formulation for improving sperm quality by raising number and their mobility. In Oligospermia with or without poor motility was our main concern.

Here Homoeopathy was the best choice because:

It has fastest response. Sperm count rises 5-6 times at least from the first month itself. So it requires short treatment of 2 to 3 months. ONLY.
It improves motility percentage wise as well as grade wise. So number of sperms having motility rises as well as grade of motility improved from I or II grades to III rd or IV th grade. This raises conception rates.
Since this male factor is the largest causative factor for infertility, our medicines helps a large number of infertility patients.
It has no hormonal preparation so no side effects. It helps to raise sperm quality for longer periods, so no rebound phenomena as it appears as in hormonal treatment.
It has no dietary restriction.
It is easy to take and cheap.
Female Infertility Treatment:

In cases of anatomical damaged tubes, homeopathy cannot help much , so operative procedures are better for it.

But for abortive factors, homeopathy is the best. Doctors at Speciality Homeoathy treated more than 1000 patients with above 95% success rate with medicine only. They had different causes like infection toxoplasma, rubella cytomegaly virus, or hormonal causes.

Here also the treatment is faster. It requires 2 months treatment to eliminate all important causes of abortions, post-treatment conception is generally safe up to 95% without any additional hormonal treatment or other measures like bed rest. Medicines are safe and have no side effects. Homeopathy has worked best in secondary infertility also with very high success rate.

If left untreated, hypothyroidism can progress and cause a multitude of complications. Understanding the symptoms of hypothyroidism and getting regular screenings to ensure an early diagnosis will prevent the onset of the complications listed below. Birth Defects If you are pregnant and have an untreated thyroid disorder, your child may have a higher risk of having birth defects than babies born to healthy mothers. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disorders may have significant mental and physical development issues because thyroid hormones are vital for brain development. Fortunately, if these problems are addressed shortly after the birth, the child may experience healthy development. An abbreviated thyroid function test is part of the newborn screen. This usually includes a panel of blood tests performed on a newborn to exclude diseases. Goiter When your thyroid over exerts itself in an effort to produce an adequate amount of hormones, the excessive stimulation may cause the thyroid gland to enlarge to the point where you have a bulge in your neck. This is known as a goiter. Heart Problems Hypothyroidism—even in its mildest forms—can affect the health of your heart. An underactive thyroid can increase your risk of developing heart disease because it increases levels of" bad" cholesterol. Too much bad cholesterol can lead to atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, which can increase your risk of heart attacks and strokes. Hypothyroidism can also result in the buildup of fluid around the heart, a pericardial effusion, which may make it harder for the heart to pump blood. Infertility If thyroid hormone levels are too low, it can affect ovulation and decrease a woman's chances of conceiving. Even with proper treatment for hypothyroidism—thyroid hormone replacement therapy—there is no guarantee that the woman will be fully fertile. Mental Health Issues The symptoms of hypothyroidism can take a mental toll if left untreated. Mild hypothyroidism can cause mild forms of depression. But without treatment, the symptoms of hypothyroidism will increase. This can directly affect your mental state, and your depression may intensify as a result. Moreover, untreated hypothyroidism has been associated with a gradual decrease in mental functioning. Myxedema Myxedema is the medical term for extreme hypothyroidism—when the disorder has progressed for a long time with no treatment. Myxedema is very rare because it's highly unlikely that you wouldn't recognize the symptoms and seek treatment. This form of hypothyroidism is life threatening. Myxedema can eventually slow metabolism to the point where you would fall into a coma. If you experience symptoms of myxedema, such as extreme fatigue or cold intolerance, seek medical treatment immediately. The key to preventing the complications of hypothyroidism is to understand the disorder's symptoms and seek proper medical care. Hypothyroidism is manageable with the right treatment—it doesn't have to interfere with your everyday life.

It's cause of concern that your insulin is not acting to neutralize the sugar while you are taking good medicines prescribed by your experience doctor. This is non response of drugs. It's not fault in treatment by your doctor. I would suggest the support of ayurveda medicine as support to your current medicine. Both won't counteract with each other. Observing the response of this integrative approach, further directions would be decided. If you agree, I would mention the first phase of safe, side effect less, easy to take and economic medicines which will prevent complications also.

He is suffering with diabetes and don't want to leave sweets. How can I manage the things? Please help me.

He is suffering with diabetes and don't want to leave sweets. How can I manage the things? Please help me.
the reason sweets should be avoided in diabetes is intake will increase blood sugar straight away. High blood sugar causes multiple problems affecting eyes (retina), small and large blood vessels, kidneys, heart, legs and feet (ulcers not healing, leading to amputation), severe neuropathic pain etc. Plus sweets also contain high fat content, increases caloric intake and may lead to weight increase. So if one has diabetes then there is no option but has to stop eating sweets. You have to convince him and impress that sweets will cause serious problem in the course of the disease. Another possibility is to use sucralose in stead of sugar while making sweets. But still gheee will be plenty.

These medications help lower blood glucose by assisting the body with breaking down starchy foods and table sugar. For the best results, they’re taken before meals. Options include: Acarbose (Precose) Miglitol (Glyset) Biguanides & Morphine is the strongest.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 in adults and treated wid oral tablets. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Your blood sugar levels are very high. You definitely need to go in for a personalised diet consultation to avoid the long term negative effects. Diabetes is a health condition that affects your body's production of insulin, which is needed to control your blood sugar levels. When you eat, your body begins to store sugar in its cells, but as a diabetic, your body does not produce enough insulin to help control how much sugar is being stored. Spikes in blood sugar levels from eating can cause you to feel fatigued and lethargic, due to excess sugar in your bloodstream and cells. When enough insulin is once again produced to regulate your blood sugar levels, the glucose can be burned off as energy, thereby making you feel less fatigued. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Is dates good in diabetes can I eat date I have fluctuation in sugar level sometimes 250.
Hi Dates are rich source of fibre, so helps in digestion. It also has many minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, magnesium and also copper. It has a low glycaemic index and hence is diabetic friendly if taken in the right quantity and frequency. If your blood sugar is 250 only occasionally then I suggest you can have 1 or 2 fresh dates two to three times a week making sure your blood sugars are within the normal range.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you want to know whether diabetes is there or not, better to check fasting as well as after food sugar levels. If fasting is between 101 to 125 mg, it is impaired fastin glucose, if level is between 141 to 199 mg/ 100 ml it is impaired glucose tolerance (igt). It is also called prediabetic condition. Fasting above 126 mg and pp above 200 mg then diabetes is confirmed. If you exercise regularly for more than 1 hour a day, take a balanced and restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (height in cms - 100 = kgs) your ibw should be 75 kgs. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking. The modified life style will help you to prevent diabetes.
