Check for your blood sugar level. One in empty stomach. Another two hours after a heavy breakfast. Also give mirning first sample of urine for routine test. Looking at the report it will be possible to confirm. Avoid drinking much water in the night. Take small sips only. This will bring down the frequency.

Thyroid Treatment in hindi - थायराइड का इलाज

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Lakhimpur Kheri
Thyroid Treatment in hindi - थायराइड का इलाज

थायराइड हमारे गले में पाई जाने वाली ग्रंथि है जिसके बढ़ जाने से ये समस्या होती है। थायराइड का काम है की वो आयोडीन का उपयोग करके जरूरी थायराइड हार्मोन बनाये और हमारे शरीर के सारे हिस्सों में पहुचाये लेकिन जब यह जरूरत से ज्यादा हार्मोन बनाने लगे तभी यह समस्या होती है। यह रोग महिलाओं में समय के साथ अधिक बढ़ता हैं। कुछ महिलाओं को पता नहीं होता की वो थायराइड का शिकार हो चुकी हैं क्योकि उन्हें इसके लक्षण समझ में ही नहीं आते। दोस्तो थायराइड ग्रंथि में होने वाले इस समस्या के लक्षण और उसके उपाय जानने से पहले यह जान लेते है कि थायराइड ग्रंथि क्या है।
थायराइड ग्रंथि शरीर के महत्वपूर्ण हिस्सो में से एक है। थायराइड ग्रंथि शरीर के दूसरे हिस्सो को सही से काम करने का काम करती है। इसके लिए थायराइड ग्रंथि थायराइड आयोडीन बनाती है और जब यह थायराइड ग्रंथि जरूरत से अधिक या कम थायराइड आयोडीन बनाने लगती है, तब थायराइड में खराबी आ जाती है और हमें थायराइड का इलाज कराना पड़ता है।

थायराइड ग्रंथि के बढ़ जाने पर इसके अलावा भी कई समस्याएं हो जाती है। थायराइड ग्रंथि के कारण शरीर के अनेक हिस्से प्रभावित होते है। थायराइड किसी भी उम्र के लोगो में हो सकता है।
थायराइड मुख्य रूप से दो प्रकार के होते है

1. हाइपो-थायरोइडिस्म
हाइपो-थायरोइडिस्म थायराइड में व्यक्ति के अंदर थायरोक्सिन हॉर्मोन की कमी होने लगती है।
2. हाइपर-थायरोइडिस्म
हाइपर-थायरोइडिस्म में शरीर में थायरोक्सिन हॉर्मोन तेजी से बढ़ने लगती है।

थायराइड के कारण

  • शरीर में आयोडीन की मात्रा कम या अधिक होने पर भी थायराइड की समस्या हो जाती है।
  • प्रदुषण के कारण भी थायराइड की बीमारी हो जाती है। गन्दगी और प्रदुषण के कारण हवा के माध्यम से विषैले जीवाणु हमारी थायराइड ग्रंथि को नुकसान भी पहुँचाते है।
  • दवाइयों के अधिक इस्तेमाल और दवाइयों के साइड इफ़ेक्ट से भी आपको थायराइड की समस्या का सामना करना पड़ सकता है।
  • थायराइड की बीमारी हेरेडितरी भी होते है। इसका मतलब है, कि अगर आपके परिवार में किसी को ये बीमारी है, तब भी आपको ये बीमारी होने के चांस है।

थायराइड के लक्षण
1. वजन बढना

सबसे बड़ा लक्षण यही हैं की जब शरीर में थायराइड होता हैं तो मेटाबॉलिज्म की दर धीमी पड जाती हैं और शरीर में अतिरिक्त फैट का जमना शुरू हो जाता हैं। अधिक वजन का बढ़ना थायराइड का एक लक्षण हैं।
2. नाखून और आँखों में रूखापन
जब शरीर में थायराइड होता हैं तो हाथ पैर के नाखून शुष्क और रूखे होने लग जाते हैं और उनमे सफ़ेद लाइन पड़ने लग जाती हैं और यह जल्दी टूट जाते हैं। इसके अलावा महिला की आँखों में दर्द, खुजली और आँख का लाल पड़ने जैसी समस्या होती हैं।
3. यौन उत्तेजना खत्म होना
थायराइड का लक्षण होने पर कई सारी महिलाओं को सेक्स से बिलकुल ही रूचि कम हो जाती हैं और यहाँ तक उन्हें धीरे-धीरे सेक्स से घृणा हो जाती हैं।
4. जल्द थकान महसूस करना
जब आप कोई हल्का सा भी काम करे और आपको थकावट महसूस होने लगे तो आपको समझ जाना चाहिए की आपको थायराइड की सम्भावना हैं।
5. पीरियड्स में बदलाव
थायराइड के कारण महिलाओं को होने वाले मासिक धर्म में भी प्रभाव पड़ता हैं। जैसे सामान्य रूप से चलने वाला 28 दिन का साइकिल लगभग 40 दिन तक चल सकता हैं या फिर कम भी हो सकता हैं। ऐसा भी हो सकता हैं की आपको पीरियड्स जल्दी जल्दी आने लगे।

थायराइड की समस्या है तो इनसे परहेज करें
1. सफ़ेद नमक ना खाये। हमेशा सेंधा या काला नमक ही खाये।
2. नशीले पदार्थो का सेवन ना करे।
3. वनस्पति घी का सेवन करने से बचे।
4. रेड मीट का सेवन कभी ना करे।

थायराइड को खत्म करने के कुछ घरेलू उपाय
1. लौकी

थायराइड की बीमारी से छुटकारा पाने के लिए रोजाना सुबह खाली पेट लौकी का जूस पिए। इसके बाद एक गिलास ताजे पानी में तुलसी की एक दो बून्द और कुछ मात्रा में एलोवेरा जूस डालकर पिए। अब आप आधे से एक घण्टे तक कुछ ना खाये पिए। रोजाना ऐसा करने से थायराइड की बीमारी जल्दी ठीक हो जायेगी।
2. विटामिन ए
थायराइड के मरीज को अपने भोजन में विटामिन ए की मात्रा बढा देनी चाहिए। विटामिन ए थायराइड को धीरे धीरे कम करता है। गाजर और हरी पत्तेदार सब्जियों में विटामिन ए अधिक मात्रा में पाया जाता है।
3. काली मिर्च
थायराइड को ठीक करना चाहते है, तो तुरंत काली मिर्च का सेवन शुरू करे। काली मिर्च का सेवन करने से थायराइड की बीमारी ठीक हो जाती है। काली मिर्च का सेवन आप किसी भी प्रकार से कर सकते है।
4. हरा धनिया
हरे धनिये के इस्तेमाल से थायराइड को ठीक किया जा सकता है। ताजे हरे धनिये को बारीक़ पीसकर इसकी चटनी बना ले। अब इस चटनी को रोजाना एक गिलास पानी में घोलकर पिए इससे थायराइड धीरे धीरे कण्ट्रोल होने लगता है।
5. अंडा
अंडा खाना भी थायराइड के मरीज के लिए फायदेमंद है। अंडा खाने से थायराइड कण्ट्रोल में रहता है।
6. आयोडीन
थायराइड के मरीज को आयोडीन (Iodine) का अधिक मात्रा में सेवन करना चाहिए। आयोडीन (Iodine) प्राप्त करने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है, प्याज, लहसुन, टमाटर जैसी आयोडीन (Iodine) युक्त चीजो का सेवन करे।
7. व्यायाम
रोजाना आधे से एक घण्टे का व्यायाम जरूर करे। व्यायाम करने से शरीर स्वस्थ रहता है, थायराइड भी कण्ट्रोल में रहता है।
8. नारियल पानी
नारियल पानी भी थायराइड को कण्ट्रोल करने में सहायक है। रोजाना ना हो सके तो कम से कम एक दिन छोड़कर एक नारियल पानी जरूर पिए।

थायराइड की समस्या से बचने के लिए योग
योगा करने से भी थायराइड की समस्या से काफी हद तक छुटकारा पाया जा सकता है क्योंकि योगा का कोई साइड इफ़ेक्ट नहीं होता। योगा शरीर को हमेशा किसी ना किसी रूप में फायदा ही पहुँचाता हैं। रोज सुबह इन योगासनों को आधे या एक घंटे करने से आपको थायराइड का इलाज करने में आसानी होगी।
1. हलासन
2. मत्स्यासन
3. विपरीत करन

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Why Reading A Label Is Important For Diabetic Patients?

Cardiologist, Thane
Why Reading A Label Is Important For Diabetic Patients?

From core ingredients used in your day to day cooking like salt and flour to biscuits and snacks, a lot of the food we eat comes pre-packaged. It is only by reading the labels does one find out the nutritional value of the food. Diabetics need to be much more aware of what they are eating as compared to others. Hence it is best to avoid processed and packaged foods. If you must snack on them, do not skip reading the label. Here are a few things you should take notice of.

  1. Serving Size: All the nutritional information given on the package is relative to the suggested serving size. For example, a 100gm and 200gm pack of biscuits may have the same nutritional data printed on the packet but the total nutritional value of both packets will be different. This is because the nutritional values printed are likely to be based on a serving size of 10 or 20 gms. Thus, you will need to adjust your calorie calculations on the basis of the amount you eat and the suggested serving size.
  2. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the body’s prime source of energy but excess carbohydrates get stored in the body as fat. Hence, it is important to limit your carbohydrate intake. This is usually mentioned in terms of grams on food packets. 15 grams of carbohydrates is considered equal to 1 serving of carbohydrates.
  3. Fats: For a diabetic, fat intake must be limited to the minimal amount required by the body. Packaged foods mention cholesterol, trans fat and saturated fat content on the label. In case of all three, the lower the amount, the healthier the food item. You should aim at consuming less than 200mg of cholesterol per day and only pick food that has less than 1 gram of saturated fat or 0.5 gram of trans fat per serving.
  4. Protein: Eating a protein rich snack can help keep you satiated for longer and hence reduce your urge to snack on other foods. Foods like meat, eggs, chicken, soy, beans, peas, nuts and seeds are rich sources of proteins. However, if you have kidney damage, your doctor may advise you to limit your protein intake. Hence pay attention to the protein content of packaged foods.
  5. Sodium and potassiumSodium and potassium help regulate blood pressure. Hence both should be consumed in limited amounts. If you suffer from a kidney disease, your doctor may advise you to reduce your potassium intake to prevent cardiac problems.
  6. Read Label: Wwhile reading the label we should also see the ingredients, the calorie content, the presence of preservatives etc.

Obesity - How It Increases Your Risk of Different Diseases?

MBBS, MD MEDICINE, DM - Gastroenterology
Gastroenterologist, Jaipur
Obesity - How It Increases Your Risk of Different Diseases?

The new epidemic that has taken the world by storm is obesity. The proportion of obese people is increasing and the age of onset of obesity is decreasing gradually. There is an optimal weight for a given height of a person. Obesity is when a person's weight is 20% more than the optimal weight. It brings with it a host of other health conditions, as it impairs the body’s overall functioning.

  1. Diabetes 2: In a normal person, food gets broken down into glucose to provide the required energy for the body using insulin. The body’s inability to produce sufficient insulin to convert the excessive amount of sugar in the body leads to diabetes. Growing to be a leading cause of early death, diabetes brings with it a host of complications affecting almost all systems and parts of the body including stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and death. Diabetes and obesity have a direct correlation and can be prevented and managed by eating a balanced diet, losing weight, exercising, and having a healthy lifestyle.
  2. Heart problems: An increased BMI also ups the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD), where the blood vessels are narrowed due to constant accumulation of fat in their inner walls. This gradually reduces the blood flow through these and may when complete cut-off happens, it could result in heart attack or stroke, affecting the heart or the brain. There could also be cases where the heart fails to pump sufficient blood to the rest of the body, affecting their effective functioning. Obese people also have a higher blood pressure than people who maintain a good BMI.
  3. Breathing problems: One of the main causes of labored breathing is excessive weight. The condition called sleep apnea which is sudden bouts of absence of breathing during sleep is very high in obesity. It can cause snoring, daytime sleepiness, increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. In people with sleep apnea, weight loss is one of the first and most recommended therapies. Asthma and general breathing disorders are also higher in obese people.
  4. Abnormal body cholesterol: Obese people also tend to have abnormally higher levels of body fat, especially the bad cholesterol, which again leads to coronary disease. It is a vicious cycle with one leading to the other and aggravating the other.
  5. Osteoarthritis: Added weight leads to pressure on the hips, knees and lower back. There is added wear and tear and pain, which further limits movement.
  6. Cancer: Some cancers, of the colon, endometrium, kidney, pancreas, gallbladder, breast and esophagus are more prevalent in obese people.

These are just some, there are more. The best way to avoid all these is to watch your weight. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
