First time I checked TSH. And the result is 7.61, what I should to do take a medicine or what. And I am 36 years old and have a baby boy 6 yrs. And also plan to next baby in after 4-5 months. So please suggest what I should to do.

Hi, in a normal person tsh 7.61 milli units is not considered as treatable level. Because it is called as subclinical hypothyroidism. If this accompanied by low t4 and /or there any specific symptoms suggesting hypothyroidism then treatment is recommended. Otherwise thyroxine is given only when tsh crosses 10 milli units/ml. However, if pregnancy is desired then it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2.5 milli units before conception and during 1st trimester, during second 0.3 to 3 milli units and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. This is essential for proper conception, development of fetus and successful outcome of pregnancy.

Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes is also known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) or Adult-onset Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by increased level of sugar (glucose) in the blood due to deficiency or inactivity of hormone 'Insulin' that is absolutely necessary to monitor glucose metabolism of body. This is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterized by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and consecutively hyperglycemia. Diabetes is prevalent worldwide and if not attended properly, it may lead to serious complications.

Causes of Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes basically occurs due to defective insulin secretion combined with defective responsiveness of the body to the insulin (also called Insulin resistance). Due to both these factors, hyperglycemia starts occurring in the body. It is strongly associated with obesity and with increasing age. A strong inheritance pattern has been noted in cases of type 2 diabetes. Sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc pose as risk factors for developing Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can begin at any age though it is not very common in childhood. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin but later it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. This ultimately results in Hyperglycemia (high levels of glucose in circulation).

Homeopathic Treatment for Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes is a constitutional disorder as it is an offshoot of constitutional defects (genetic factors, altered immunity) having an impact on the entire constitution of an individual. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Moreover homeopathy recognizes importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.

When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment along with intake of hypoglycemic drugs and/or insulin can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. However, it may be noted that there is no substitute to insulin in homeopathy. The role of a healthy diet and exercise cannot be underestimated along with all the above treatment measures.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is there for long time and even if it well controlled, there is certain amount of damage to small vasculature, which can cause ED. But it is absolutely important to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Then you might consider using a drug like PDE-V Inhibitor. Thanks.

Wat is rate of possibility of getting diabetes if a person is having raised insulin.
Ms. Raised insulin level may signify higher resistance to insulin. This happens if body fat is is in excess. This can lead to development of t2 diabates some time later or sooner.

Diabetes mellitus if not managed properly through diet chart, regular exercise & drug/insulin can lead to diabetic foot (fungal infection) & damage other organs as well. Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels with glucometer is essential. Diabetic people are more prone to fungal infections. First consult the doctor whom you have been consulting so fat for managing her diabetes. He should be able to guide you regarding tests to be done. Kindly make sure she follows a correct diet & exercise regimen as well.

I am 36 year's old I lost 5 kg's in last one month. When I check for sugar for fasting it shows 160, am I diabetic.

I am 36 year's old I lost 5 kg's in last one month. When I check for sugar for fasting it shows 160, am I diabetic.
Hello. Sometimes even after our sugar is above the normal level which is -70 to 130 before meals, -less then 180 after meals, -and at bedtime 100 to 140. We are not diagnosed with diabetes, and sometimes even a small exceed can cause diabetes, its a very peculiar phenomenon. Firstly it is advisable that you make sure you are having this same diabetic range for at least 2-3 days constantly (while having simple food). If this condition persists then you are surely having the problem of diabetes. Secondly get your thyroid checked due to your weight issues. For your exceeded blood sugar consume fenugreek seeds. Take half spoon fenugreek seeds (methi daana) and soak it overnight in one glass of water consume that water the very next morning empty stomach chewing the remaining fenugreek seeds, do it for at least 3 months. Keep away from processed food, sugars and its products as well as refined/double refined oils. You should even start with a jogging regime, walking at least 5000 steps everyday for your over all fitness and health. Lastly make sure you are maintaining a proper routine cycle as well as food cycle everyday. Thanks.

Hello, Firstly congratulations. Your girlfriend is most likely having Type-1 Diabetes. This starts from childhood normally and patients are on insulin. Diabetic patients can lead a happy, healthy and fruitful life. 1) The most important thing is for the diabetic patient to maintain his blood glucose in the optimal range. HbA1C is a blood test that measures the average blood glucose levels over the last 3 months and the result is given in percentage. As your girlfriend is young she should have her HbA1C less than 6.5-7%. So she should be seeing her diabetologist at least once every 3 months, sooner if her glucose levels fluctuates. 2) She should follow a healthy lifestyle with due importance to diet and exercise. 3) She should also have yearly health checks done- of eyes to check for any signs of retinopathy, kidney function tests (this is by a blood and urine test), routine ECG and foot checks to check for any neuropathy. 4) She can have a normal marital life and there should be no problem in conceiving or delivering children. But she would be monitored closely during pregnancy to make sure that her blood glucose levels do not fluctuate. Your children are unlikely to get Type-1 diabetes. It is actually Type-2 which runs in families more. So, relax and you can go ahead and marry her. Provide all the support that you can to your girlfriend. Diabetics can experience low sugar symptoms or may be frustrated when their sugar level fluctuate. So be patient with her. Lastly there are so many famous people with Type-1 diabetes- Kamal Hasan, Sonam Kapoor (actress- Anil Kapoor's daughter), Wasim Akram (cricketer), Gaurav Kapoor VJ and a host of international actors, actresses and sports players. So, if these people are able to lead such fruitful and healthy lives, so can your girlfriend. I wish you best of luck. Thank you.

Greatly reduce or eliminate caffeine and sugar, including refined carbohydrates like flour, which the body treats like sugar. Make grain-based carbohydrates lesser of a focus, eating non-starchy vegetables to your heart’s content. also you can go for Protein. Protiens transports thyroid hormone to all your tissues and enjoying it at each meal can help normalize thyroid function. Proteins include nuts and nut butters; quinoa; hormone- and antibiotic-free animal products (organic, grass-fed meats, eggs, and sustainably-farmed fish); and legumes.

Utrition is very important in managing diabetes. Not only what you eat, but how much you eat and when you eat influences your blood sugar. Meals should be at regular times with planned snacks. They should be low fat, high fiber foods with a limited amount of simple carbohydrates. Homoeopathc treatment is effective for controlling sugar levels.

I am an old man of 69 years. I have high B.P for 20 years but am keeping it under control, using right medicines as advised by the doctor. I also have been diabetic for 6 years and keeping it well with in limits. I have a great urge for sex right from my adolescence and I used to have excellent sexual potency that very few can have. But, unfortunately due to having been divorced, I haven't had sex with any woman for nearly 11 years. Though I burn with a great desire to have sex, I am afraid, I may not be so active as I was earlier due to my fear that my penis is flaccid and that there is no proper erection, when the desire for sex rises in me (I get tempted, even looking at any young and sexy woman, at this age too). I would like to know if there are any medicines or surgeries that can make my penis strong and stiff when aroused and whether I can get back my original potency at this age. Can I also have the sustaining power of retaining the erection for long ,as I used to have earlier? The bottom line is that I am going to marry an orphan, younger to me by 35 years. I don't want to be a failure and have my new wife find ways to betray me due to lack of sexual satisfaction from me. Please advise me.

If you are in your initial stages, try diet-exercise routine to gain better control of your blood sugars with minimum possible medicines. Also, try losing atleast 10-12 kg of your weight. It will do wonders & there are chances that your medicines might stop for now. I would advise you and your family members to go for genetic tests as you have got the disease at such an early age.
