I am suffering from thyroid last one year. What should I do for safety. How can I overcome from thyroid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Are you referring to "hypothyroidism" or "hyperthyroidism" Because thyroid is the normal gland in everyone of us. When it is not producing enough thyroxine, hypothyroidism develops and excess activity causes hyperthyroidism. In any case since these are hormone related conditions, treatment has to go on for lifetime. If hypothyroidism (which is more common) then thyroxine tablets have to be taken in specified dosage for lifetime. That is the only treatment. Thanks.

I am 32 year male. I currently have lymph node TB and currently under medication from last 1 month. Due to medicines my URIC acid has increased and to control the same I am eating FABUTAZ 80 mg, I am am eggatarian, please suggest suitable diet to control the URIC acid.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

My aunty is suffering from diabetics. And she is suffering from lack of blood .what precautions should we must take.
Hi If the cause for her low Hemoglobin is iron deficiency then she needs lots of iron rich foods like beans, rajma, legumes, lentils, green leafy vegetables, ragi. If it is not due to iron deficiency then she needs a complete evaluation as to find the cause of her blood loss. As a diabetic let her take her medicines regularly, follow a strict diabetic diet (4-6 small meals a day, avoid white rice, refined flour, sugar, excess oil, fried foods, bakery products, take fresh vegetables and fuits like apple, guava, mousambi, strawberry, plum, papaya), and exercise regularly.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I will be glad to answer your query, but I am unable to understand what exactly is your doubt. Hypothyroidsm can develop due to many reasons, like deficiency of iodine leading to goitre, radiation exposure to thyroid gland, certain drugs might have affected the gland or there may be hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht). In usa this is the main cause of developing hypothyroidism more so in women. This is autoimmune disease, where antibodies are produced against thyroid peroxidase enzyme, these antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells resulting in hypothyroidism. There is a lymphocytic infiltration ofthyroid gland, it becomes lobulated and firm. Treatment is to give thyroxine tablets for lifetime. If you still have any doubt please do comeback, thanks.

Does statins cause diabetes in long run?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Does statins cause diabetes in long run?
Some time back there were doubts raised about statins, that long term use may precipitate diabetes. But a large number of clinical studies have dispelled that doubt. It is now clear that statins do not cause diabetes.

I am happy to read that you are doing yoga regularly" sarvangasana" is a specific aasan for thyroid and you must practise it for at least five minutes every day. Constipation is due to thyroid deficiency, when was the last time you got your thyroid checked? please let me know the result, I want to see scanned copy of the report. Report should not be older than one month. Dizziness while walking can be because of low haemoglobin of low vit d3. Please get blood checked for these two and let me know the result.

Gestational diabetes (diabetes detected during pregnancy) is quite common in india. Usually a 75 g glucose is given for doing a oral glucose tolerance test (ogtt), to detect gestational diabetes. Gdm is diagnosed if 2 hour blood sugar is above 140 mg. The recommended management is to start the patient on medical nutrition and help control blood sugar for 2 - 3 weeks if not controlled, start on insulin injections. Oral drugs are not recommended.

Mr. lybrate-user, You are having a seriously uncontrolled diabetes, which can lead to very bad consequences related to multiple vital organs and systems. There is need for urgent upgradation of present treatment. Ideally fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Plus your BP is also high. If are really willing to get properly treated please come in a private conversation, where I will be able to help. This is urgent looking at your glucose levels. Thanks.

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

BHMS
Homeopath, Jaipur
Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Thyroid is one among the many glands in the endocrine system, whose secreted hormones regulate and maintain various metabolic activities. Thyroid problem, in generic terms, refers to a situation where there is an abnormal secretion of the thyroid hormone. The secretion can either be abundant, causing what is known as hyperthyroidism, or insufficient which, in turn is known as hypothyroidism. Both of these conditions are detrimental to health affecting not only your body weight but also the growth of bones and hair. Though different branches of medicines are constantly dabbling with this problem, Homeopathy is the most preferred choice.

Some of the reasons for it are:

  1. Treats severe sweating, problems in menstruation and constipation: One of the most important advantages of Homeopathy medicines is that each one of them is equipped to treat a host of ailments. The condition, hypothyroidism is symptomatic of excessive sweating on the head, constipation and problems in menstruating in women. All of these can be cured by the intake of Calcarea Carbonica.
  2. Cures paleness of skin, tendencies of fainting and hair fall: This is another characteristic of hypothyroidism, wherein you suffer from pale, yellow skin and are unable to bear extreme cold temperatures due to the lack of vitality and body heat. &#x00a0;At the same time, women in their menopause tend to suffer from excessive hair fall. In all of these situations, a Homeopathic medicine called Sepia Officinalis is extremely beneficial in curbing these.
  3. Does not create overt reliance on medicines: Hyperthyroidism is a condition that is marked by nervousness and anxiety. Though allopathic medicines have always been preferred to others, it must also been considered that in their attempt to cure, they end up creating an overt reliance of medicines in the patients.
  4. Suits everybody: The primary reason for preferring Homeopathy to others is their complete lack of any side-effect. Both allopathy and ayurveda may or may not work on certain individuals. However, that is not the case for Homeopathy as it does not adopt any artificial means to cure thyroid problems, rather uses natural means to regulate the secretion of the thyroid gland.

Best Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally:

  1. Eat Healthy Fats (Including Coconut Oil and Avocados)
  2. Supplement with Adaptogen Herbs
  3. Balance Your Intake of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Fats
  4. Improve Gut Health &amp; Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
  5. Eliminate Toxic Kitchen, Beauty and Body Care Products
  6. Exercise (Especially Interval Training)
  7. Reduce Stress &amp; Get More Sleep
  8. Watch Your Caffeine &amp; Alcohol Intake
  9. Back Off Birth Control Pills
  10. Supplement with Vitamin D3
