Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

I have Diabetes. Fpg 250 ppg 400. I have been on homeopathy. How should I continue?

I have Diabetes. Fpg 250 ppg 400. I have been on homeopathy. How should I continue?
Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. In diabetes, homeopathy treatment does not help in controlling blood glucose. Continuing that treatment is a waste of time, money and effort. It is quite vible from your blood glucose levels. Fasting 250 mg & PP 400 mg levels are too high, suggesting totally uncontrolled diabetes. With this you are likely to get the long term complications of diabetes much earlier. Best is to start appropriate modern medicine drugs along with diet control and regular execise. So if you are interested, please come back with following details: Current fasting, Pp glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise being done, weight and height. It is better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation) then I can give specific guidelines plus even prescriptions. In this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines and no drugs can be prescribed. Or else consult a good diabetologist locally, and start the treatment. Because achieving early control is a must. Thanks.

My mother is aged 63 years. She is having diabetes and is on regular medicine. In a recent urine report, there is one observation as the traces of ALBUMIN is found. What does that mean.

No details about duration of Diabetes and medications she is taking. Although appearance of Albumin or Microalbumin may be connected with early involvement of renal mechanism and kidney However there may be some commonest reasons like urine infection which can be easily diagnosed and treated. Take her to a physician for clinical examination, related investigations diagnosis and treatment

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH level of 0.39 mU/l is fairly normal. You may continue the same dosage. Check TSH again after 8 weeks if level goes further low, then you may consider reducing the dose. Thanks.

My mother is having type 2 diabetes from past 7 years. From last 1 years her fasting glucose is always high (more than 200). She is taking glimepiride 4 mg +metformin 1000 mg BD & vildagliptin OD for last 20 days but still today her Fasting was 240 PP was 262. Now doctor has prescribed insulin 30/70 - 15 units in night. Also glimepiride 4 mg in morning along with Sitagliptin+metformin 500 mg. Also metformin 1000 mg in night. Why her fasting glucose is so much high while PP usually under 200 mg/dl? Is the medication ok?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the given information it is clear that she is already on very high dose of Glimepiride 4 X 2 tabs. Usually there is no benefit in giving such a high dose of glimepiride. Plus she is on Vildagliptin also. It is essential to bring blood glucose level to: FBG <100 mg & PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, in order to prevent long term complications of diabetes. Therefore, it is necessary to use Insulin injection like Glargine once a day along with the oral drugs (with a reduction in Glimepiride dose). If you are keen on getting a better control, please come in a private conversation, with following details: current FBG, PP levels, HbA1c%, her dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Then I will be able to guide. Please understand it is absolutely essential to reduce the glucose levels. If not with me please do consult your local doctor and take necessary steps. Thanks.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according over all information in relation to alcohol, it is not recommended at all for a diabetes patient. So whatever may be type of alcohol (beer, scotch), hence quantity is not the case.

Hi, I am a 27 year old woman. I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking regular medications for it. I am not married yet, and due to family issues I would not be marrying before two years. Which means I would be around 29 when I get married. I am not interested in having kids for at least 2 years post marriage, so by the time I want one I would turn 31. Everybody keeps telling me that if you are hypothyroid you will have a hell lot of complication if you conceive after 30. I do not want to have kids just because of society's pressure. I want kids when I am mentally prepared to take care of them. Hence please let me know is it really going to be risky for me to have kids after 30, will it lead to any complication?

Sugar - How It Affects Your Teeth?

Sugar - How It Affects Your Teeth?

Sugar is an all pervasive substance that is found in most food items although specific ones such as candies, colas and sweet delicacies tend to have more of it. While it may taste great on the tongue, it may not be so good for your body as well as your teeth. Teeth are especially affected by sugar as an ingredient in all items of food. Some of the ways it affects your dental health are discussed below –

  1. Sugar from colas, sodas and other carbonated beverages: Sugar that gets into your body in the form of carbonated beverages are the worst in terms of the nooks and crannies that it gets into. As it is in liquid form, it can swirl around the toughest corner and deposit sugar there. This will encourage the growth of harmful bacteria, causing a host of problems.

  2. Dissolving tooth enamel: Tooth enamel is the topmost layer of teeth. This is the layer which is visible to the naked eye and is white in color. Foods such as chewy candies can leave a hard lump of sugar lodged in your teeth which the saliva in your mouth will not be able to dissolve away. This will keep producing acids and result in the dissolving of the enamel. Enamel protects the nerves of the teeth and thus will result in extreme pain and even tooth decay.

  3. Encourages the growth of plaque: Plaque is an obstructive and sticky substance that forms on many parts of your body, including the teeth. Plaque is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and these bacteria feed and grow on the sugar from the foods that you eat. These bacteria can cause cavities, gum infections, bad breath, destroy the enamel among causing other dental problems as well.

Some of the other related problems that can be caused by sugar on your dental health are:-

  1. Reduction in the size of your back teeth due to erosion from acids formed from sugar.

  2. Gum infections of various kinds which may end up requiring surgery.

  3. Changes in the bite of a person i.e. the way upper and lower teeth come together.

  4. Sugar may also affect the growth of bacteria in the mouth, which in turn may also cause digestion problems.

  5. Causes bad breath due to buildup of bacteria.
