Thyroid is an endocrine gland situated on the adam's apple on the throat. This secretes hormones like t3 and t4 (thyroxine) which are essential for all the metabolic activities of the body. Some times it does no produce the hormone leading to hypothyroidism, when the person feels weak, weight increases, cold can not be tolerated, lethargy occurs and there may be many other complaints. The condition is moe common in females compared to males. It can occur at any age. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage daily for life time.

Lybrate-user I hope you are taking regular medicines to control your sugar. You should strictly take sugar free diet. Early morning brisk walking is a must for you, you can go in for yoga which will help in putting sugar level in control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To answer your question on finding a cure in next 5 years, not only you the whole world is waiting. But so far there is nothing concrete. I do not have the information which you have. Right now the only option is to take appropriate drugs, diet control, regular exercise and weight maintenance are the only options available. Ideally in well controlled diabetes FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If you are maintaining your blood glucose levels in this manner, then it is very good. Otherwise, it is necessary to give a re look at your present treatment. Thanks.

Diabetes - Symptoms, Causes And Ayurvedic Treatment!

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which is characterized by high blood sugar levels in the body. This occurs when the glucose in the body is not converted into energy due to the impaired functioning of insulin in the body. Insulin is a hormone in the body produced by the pancreas which processes sugar in the body. Impaired functioning of the insulin leads to a rise in blood sugar levels, thus leading to diabetes.

Symptoms-

The symptoms of diabetes differ from person to person, depending on how high one’s blood sugar levels are. Diabetes exhibits various symptoms such as frequent urges to urinate, extreme hunger, rapid weight loss and irritability. Fatigue, blurred-vision and increased thirst are some other common symptoms as well. Diabetes also slows down the healing process of any sore or injury in the body.

Causes-

The cause of diabetes is linked to improper functioning of insulin. There are four types of diabetes and each comes with its own set of causes:

Type 1 Diabetes-

In Type 1 diabetes, the immune system of the body starts to attack the healthy pancreatic cells which produce insulin. This reduces the insulin production in the body, causing a rise in the blood sugar levels.

Type 2 Diabetes and Pre-diabetes-

The causes for Pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are very similar. In both the cases, the body starts becoming resistant to insulin, and the normal production of insulin cannot make up for this. This leads to accumulation of sugar in the blood, leading to diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes-

During pregnancy, a woman’s body produces hormones which play a major role in sustaining the pregnancy to a full term. However, these hormones tend to affect the functioning of insulin, leading to a rise in blood sugar.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Balancing Blood Sugar Level-

Ayurvedic treatments to regulate blood sugar aim to get your blood sugar levels under control and improve your overall health. As they are made from natural ingredients, these remedies do not have any side-effects unlike conventional treatments. The Ayurvedic remedies are:

  1. Diet: Maintaining a healthy diet is very important to get blood sugar under control. Avoid eating simple sugars as they spike blood sugar levels; instead of opting for fiber and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and vegetables.

  2. Exercise: Regular exercise helps in keeping blood sugar in check, as it burns calories. You can opt for cardiovascular or weight training to burn calories and keep your metabolic rate elevated. A high metabolic rate means good amount of calories burned by the body at rest.

  3. Herbs: There are certain herbs that you can consume (in different forms) to control diabetes. Herbs such as ‘neem’ and ‘fenugreek’ (methi) seeds, if incorporated in the daily diet in prescribed dosages, can be beneficial in getting your blood sugar in check. Turmeric is another herb which has anti-inflammatory properties that can treat this condition by reducing body resistance to insulin and increasing insulin production by the pancreas.

Blood sugars keep fluctuating from time to time due to many factors however with the help of your doctor you will have to keep it within possibly normal range as fixed by your doctor - normally 100-126 fasting and 126- 140 2 hours after principal morning meal. And perodic hba1c - 6.5 to control fluctuations buying a glucometer for self monitoring is ideal. It is better that you keep a diary and record sugar levlel 2 - 5 times, 1. Fasting, 2. Post breakfast 3. Before dinner one one day 2 hours after lunch and after dinner on some other day as advised by your doctor depending on control hba1c once in 3-6 months as advised take these reports to your doctor regularly for some adjustments or modifications of your daily routine, food intake timings and medications etc. Make it a habit you will gain more and more knowledge of diabetes and control this will avoid possible long term complications or at least postpone them so you remain healthy and fit.

Hello, her tsh level which is 0.53 milli units/l is with in the recommended level (by american thyroid assocn), for conception. Before conception it is better to have tsh between 0.1 to 2 milli units and even during first trimester. Later 2nd trimeste it should be 0.3 to 3 mill uits and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So my suggestion is you can go ahead and try for pregnancy. Hair fall is usually the last thing to get corrected once hypothyroidism comes in control. There is no need to reduce the dose of thyroxine 100 mcg now. May be post delivery you can look at that. Thanks for the question.
