What should I do for my dry skin? Is it due to thyroid? If yes then what can be done?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, yes, thyroid dysfunction can be one of the reasons for dry skin. Use bakson's face wash, schwabe's aloe vera cream regularly. Don't let the area get any kind of friction like rubbing (rubbing even the cream or oil), scratching, pinching, etc. Any kind of friction makes the condition worse! increase the intake of vitamin a (green veggies, reddish or yellow veggies or fruits like carrot, papaya, water melon, egg yolks, etc.), vitamin c (citrus fruits like oranges, kinus, mausambi, lemon, etc. And amla, green veggies, tomatoes, green peas), vitmain e (nuts sp. Walnut, almonds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, fish) and protein (pulses, legumes, sprouts, non-veg, eggs, etc.). Take 10-12 glasses of water in a day. Medication: take petroleum 200 and natrum mur. 6x/ thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back there after.

Take plenty of vegetables and at least 2 fruits (avoid mango, chikoo, jack fruit etc) / day. Limit your carbohydrates intake to 1/4 th of your plate - carbohydrates include rice/ roti/ chapati etc. Include whole grain foods in your diet. Take protein in the form of dal/eggs or non veg. Weight loss will help with better Diabetes control Exercise: at least 45 min of brisk walking, running, swimming, cycling etc Medication: take the medicines as prescribed by your doctor Hope this helps you.

Loosing hair may happen if hypothyroidism is not checked. Since you are on thyronorm, there may be some other reasons for hair fall. You may consult a skin specialist for the same. Please check your tsh levels after next 2 - 3 weeks and levels are still high you may have to increase the dose of thyronorm.

I have high tsh and normal t3 and t4. The report says I have mild subclinical hypothyroidism. I have done the test twice and got the same result. What measures should I take with respect to my diet, exercise and sleep? Also is it possible to cure it completely? I'm 42 and female. What other health risks should I look out for? Thank you.

You need to start the medication if not started, If already on the medication then you need to increase your current dose.You will need to reduce your weight by following a proper diet & doing regular exercise... however that can happen only once your TSH is normalised.

Hello sir, hope you are doing good. Pls don't stop bp medication, unless doctor ask you to stop. Diabetes, bp require a long term medication. But this might also lead to your constipation problem. If you have constipation more than occasionally or have severe pain or bleeding, it's important to check-in with your doctor as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. However, in most cases constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fiber. The average adult needs between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day to ward off constipation, far less than most of us typically eat. To avoid bloating and cramping, you'll want to gradually add fiber to your diet. Badam, orange, apple has more fiber pls eat as raw. Dont make a juice of it. Let me suggest you some best fiber supplement from who certified. This fiber is easily digestible and give a best result you need to take after meals in the afternoon and evening. Just leave a message to me on my private questions. Have a nice day.

Darkening behind neck ? Sign of Diabetes?

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology

Darkening behind neck ? Sign of Diabetes?
Many overweight & obese people have darkening behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees, knuckles, etc. which is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt or uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of diabetes which is already developed or going to develop.

This darkening is due to excessive cell growth & differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and hamper its action. In return body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth and which leads to acanthosis nigricans.

After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting and which leads to developing diabetes.

At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modification & moderate weight loss.

What more I can do in order to keep my sugar levels normal without medicine? Kindly suggest.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there is no way one can control blood sugar once diabetes has fully developed with pp sugar going above 200 mg. If you do not want to take medicine, then it is impossible to bring back blood sugar to normal. Random 210 mg is very high level. It signifies uncontrolled diabetes. Please check hba1c% also. Diet and exercise do help in reducing sugar level, but once diabetes is diagnosed, again I am emphasising treatment is essential. Otherwise you are inviting long term complications of diabetes which affect eyes (retina), kidneys, lower limbs, nerves and heart. I hope you understand. Thanks for the question.
