Without altering your present regime of treatment, I want to your consent to start parallel herbal diabetes support formula. As you improve slowly, more changes can be seen. It's slow but effective. Pl start with drinking/ sipping cinnamon and Withania coagulans strain daily morning and evening. For further advise pl consult.

You have not mentioned whether you were taking anti-diabetic medication previously. If not, and if your diabetes is now under control by lifestyle modification only, then it is a very good thing. Just keep up your present life style. However, considering that you have hyoertension and hypothyroidism also, it would be advisable to go for regular check ups every 3 months. You have to especially monitor your fasting blood glucose, hba1c, cholesterol, kidney functions and blood pressure. Rest all is good as lomg as you are not having any symptoms. Thanks.

You should not take more than 2 peg a day for not more than 2 days a week. If you take alcohol as advised than it will not harm you. Always ear some snacks along with alcohol because having only alcohol increase the chance of low blood sugar.

Homeopathic Treatment For Thyroid Problems!

B.H.M.S., P.G.Diploma in Maternal & Child Healthcare, Advance Paediatric
Homeopath,
Homeopathic Treatment For Thyroid Problems!

It is extremely remarkable to note how homeopathic treatments have gained immense acceptance and recognition in the field of modern-day treatment procedures, offering the most effective and safe medication options. A number of thyroid problems can, in fact, be alleviated with the help of homeopathic remedies, also saving you the trouble of encountering unwanted and unforeseen side effects of the normal prescription drugs. The most common problems pertaining to the thyroid gland are possibly hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Both the conditions can be cured with utmost efficacy when the right drugs are prescribed.

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathy

Hypothyroidism is the medical condition wherein the thyroid gland underperforms and produces insufficient amount of hormones required for the normal functioning of the body. The most effective homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are:

  1. Nux Vomica: This remedy is usually recommended to those patients who suffer from extreme temperament and ones who feel chilly often without any particular reason. Obstinate constipation in the patients is also curbed by this medicine. Women with prolonged periods are also prescribed Nux Vomica to decrease the incidence of period related problems.
  2. Lycopodium Clavatum: Patients of hypothyroidism who complain of gastric troubles are the ones who usually opt for Lycopodium Clavatum. Excessive hair fall as a result of hypothyroidism can also be cured with it.
  3. Calcera Carbonica: It is usually ranked as the best medicine for treating hypothyroidism, especially in patients who suffer from cold feet, extreme fatigue, and bowel problems.

Hyperthyroidism And Homeopathy

A condition wherein the thyroid gland tends to be overactive and produces more than the requisite level of hormones is usually referred to as a classic case of hyperthyroidism. Homeopathic treatments for this abnormality aim at treating the root causes to achieve best results:

  1. Lachesis Mutus: Hyperthyroidism patients who persistently complain of rising body heat are prescribed this. It also lessens the problems of fatigue and queasiness.
  2. Iodium: Patients who lose their weight quickly despite maintaining a healthy diet are prescribed doses of Iodium. Anxiousness and fatigue are also cured along with other problems.
  3. Conium Maculatum: Patients who suffer from acute depression and refuse to participate in day-to-day activities are generally given this. Trembling and profuse perspiration are treated effectively with the help of Conium Maculatum.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

lybrate-user, She seems to have multiple problems. High BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. There is no mention of weight, height, PP glucose level, drugs being taken for diabetes and TSH level as well as dose of thyroxine. Longstanding high BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. To reduce creatinine protein intake needs to be reduced. Plus BP should be in good control. Thanks.

I am a diabetic since last 2 years. I am too fat. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
You are not clear in your question whether you want help for diabetes or obesity. For diabetes, you may get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked and consult a physician nearby. There are many anti-diabetic medications available in the market and choice of drug varies from person to person. For obesity, yo need to make lifestyle changes first. Quit alchohol and smoking, eat lots of fibers, avoid eating fatty food, exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, you may also go for bariatric suregry to help reduce weight. Visit your nearest bariatric surgeon for more details of the procedure.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Fasting blood glucse 221 mg is very high, suggesting that you have been having diabetes for quite some time. Aap ko HbA1c% karava lena chahiye, jo pichale 3 mahine ka blood glucose level (average) batayega. Sirf Metformin shayad kam padega. 10 ya 15 din dava (metformin) leke phir fasting or after food blood glucose check karvaiye. Diabetes ka ilaj pure jeevan bhar chalata rahega. There is no CURE. Dava ke saath aap ko diet control aur exercise bhi karan chaiye. Following foods should be avoided: Sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida. Plus avoid sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Refrain from alcohol and smoking. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.
