Ovarian Cysts Can't Be Controlled - Is It A Myth Or A Fact?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Infertility (IVF Specialist)
Gynaecologist, Aurangabad
Ovarian Cysts Can't Be Controlled - Is It A Myth Or A Fact?

Hearing a doctor diagnose you with 'ovarian cysts' can make your mind think of the worst case scenarios, but this is actually quite a common diagnosis. Almost all women are diagnosed with ovarian cysts at some point of their life.

The difference lies in the type and size of cyst diagnosed. Hence, before you panic, read up and get informed. However, not everything you read online is trustworthy. Like every other health condition, ovarian cysts are surrounded by a number of myths.

Let's debunk five of the most common myths surrounding this condition:

  1. Myth - It requires a surgery: Contradictory to what you may initially think, not all ovarian cysts are harmful. In most cases, these cysts are small, non cancerous and will be resolved on their own. Surgery is needed only in cases where the cyst is abnormally large or where the cyst is diagnosed as a dermoid cyst or as endometriomas. Hence, if you have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst find out how big the cyst is and what type of a cyst it is.
  2. Myth - It causes infertilityBeing diagnosed with a cyst in your ovaries will not make you infertile or restrict your ability to bear a child. However, it can lead to complications that may cause infertility. If these cysts become infected it could lead to scarring of the fallopian tubes. This is one of the most common causes of infertility. Another situation in which an ovarian cyst may lead to infertility is if it is associated with endometriosis.
  3. Myth - They are cancerous: With ovarian cysts, every case is unique. However, in most cases, the cysts to not develop into cancerous cells and neither are they cancerous to begin with. A pelvic ultrasound can help your doctor diagnose the type of cyst present in your body. If the doctor deems it cancerous, he or she will usually advise surgery to remove it immediately.
  4. Myth - It only affect women after menopauseA cyst can develop in the ovaries at any stage of a woman's life. A number of women could even develop cysts that they are not aware of. In some cases, women can even develop these cysts post a hysterectomy that does not involve the removal of the ovaries.
  5. Myth - It cannot be controlled: If you suffer from recurrent ovarian cysts, taking birth control pills can help the situation. This can suppress the development of cysts in future. Losing weight if you are overweight or quitting smoking can also lower the risks of developing ovarian cysts.

I am suffering from thyroid problem. My thyroid observed report value is 5.490 uIU/ml and I was taking 75 thyrox pills. please suggest which power pills now should I consume?

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The TSH value mentioned 5.49 mU/L is the current one with dosage of Thyroxine 75 mcg is it? If so then you may have to increase it by another 12.5 mcg per day. Then check TSH after 8 weeks. Ideally TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L on adequate dosage of thyroxine. At that level all the symptoms are in check. Thanks.

How to reduce uric acid?
Due to increase in amount of uric acid. My legs have started swelling and aching. Please advise
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Uric acid increase occurs due to some internal metabolic problem. To reduce the uric acid level you will have to reduce the intake of ceratin sea foods, - sardines, haddock, salmon, herring, mussels, shell fish, red meat, organ meat. Plus avoid alcohol and aerated sweetened drinks. If necessary ceratin drugs that help in excreting uric acid may be taken. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Beta blockers are used quite often to control hypertension and related cardiac problems in patients with diabetes also. They are fairly safe. Some times hypoglycemic episodes may not be easily recognised. Thanks.

I am 40 years old my fasting reading is 237 and pp 418 please suggests me daily diet plan and exercise.
Hello, Thanks for the query. Both fasting and PP glucose values are unusually high. This needs immediate initiation of treatment with appropriate antidiabetic drugs. Plus you have to take a properly planned restrictive diet, plus do regular exercise for over 1 hour a day. To suggest a diet I will have to know your present dietary habit, extent of daily exercise and if any treatment is on. Plus lipid profile. When a person is in control of his diabetes fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. So first initiate an appropriate treatment first or come back with all the details in a private conversation so that I can guide and prescribe the needed drugs. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given, however, the information provided is incomplete. Hence no suggestion can be made. I need to know following details: Fasting and PP blood glucose levels (current), HbA1c%, extent of daily exercise, present dietary pattern and medication being taken with dosage. Please comeback with specific details. Then only I will be able to give some answers. Usually in diabetes weight is lost when blood glucose is not well controlled. Loss of glucose in the usrine leads to weight loss and fatigue. Thanks.

Hi, Can diabetic person consumes fig [anjeer] to control high BP and blood glucose, due to its high potassium contents? If yes, what is the quantity & before meals or after?

Hi,
Can diabetic person consumes fig [anjeer] to control high BP and blood glucose, due to its high potassium content...
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Figs contain fiber and some vitamins as well as a few mineral like in most fruits. Plus a 100 g of figs also give 16 g of sugar. Whether figs will help in controlling BP effectively is not clear. Since most fruits have vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants, they are good. Even in a diabetic person also fruits are good, may not increase blood glucose much. But whether they control BP or reduce blood glucose is difficult to answer. Best is to use specific drugs, diet control and exercise. Plus take fruits. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose 106 mg, and 120 mg, does fall in the pre-diabetic category. But there is also a condition called Impaired Fasting Glucose Intolerance. PP glucose & HbA1c% both are fine. Hence he is not having even prediabetes. But better to check his fasting and PP once a year or so. Another important aspect is that he should not become over weight. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels show that you have uncontrolled diabetes. Which needs urgent treatment with appropriate drugs. Plus there has to be a properly planned diet and regular exercise for over 1 hour a day. Plus you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and bakery items. Also avoid foods made from maida. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. For specific medicines either contact your local doctor or come in a private (paid consultation) conversation, then only I will be able to prescribe the drugs needed. It is essential to control blood glucose effectively to avoid complications of diabetes. Thanks.

Hello sir, I have hashimoto thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. Is there permanent treatment available in ayurveda or homeopathic.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Thyroid peroxidase (TPO), an enzyme normally found in the thyroid gland, plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones. A TPO test detects antibodies against TPO in the blood. In autoimmune disorders, your immune system makes antibodies that mistakenly attack normal tissue. Normal TPO is 35 IU/mL Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism. Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism. Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism treatment has to go on for lifetime. When treatment is started with adequate dose of Levothyroxine, TSH does come to normal after about 6 to 8 weeks. That does not mean that the condition is cured. If the treatment is stopped, then again all the symptoms come back. Hence she should not discontinue the treatment. Thanks.

5 Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Uterine Cysts!

Uterine cysts are a type of cysts or tumours, which grow in the uterus. This is prevalent in women when they are near their childbearing years. Uterine cysts have some typical symptoms, which would let you know when to consult a medical practitioner for further help. It would cause excessive bleeding for a long duration of time. There is bleeding from the uterus in between your menstrual cycles. At times, it becomes very difficult to empty your bladder and irritation and discomfort are caused. It also leads to constipation. These are frequent symptoms, which accompany uterine cysts. These types of cysts are almost always non-cancerous, but it is beneficial to take an expert advice on that matter. Homeopathy is a great option to treat such cysts.

Homeopathy is becoming increasingly popular throughout the entire world. Now it is time to prove to the world what homeopathy can offer in surgical diseases. Homeopathic medicines cannot take the place of surgery but can be of great help to the patients who do not want to go for surgery or cannot be operated upon due to various medical reasons. There are specific medications to treat cysts through homeopathy.

Some of them are:

  1. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is suitable for those who bleed profusely during their menstrual cycle. Such excessive bleeding causes shivers and shrills in them, making them more prone to anaemia. In fact, excessive bleeding also influences their fertility cycles. This medicine is administered on overweight women who suffer from uterine cysts.

  2. Thlaspi Bursa Pastoris: This is prescribed to women who experience frequent menstrual cycles within short intervals. In fact, one does not even recover from the shock of the previous cycle and the new one starts. It is usually accompanied by excessive pain in the uterus. This medicine not only treats the cysts, but also the frequent period cycles and pain in the uterus.

  3. Trillium Pendulum: At times, due to excessive bleeding from the uterus, the patient suffers from fainting spells. Such cysts are also characterised by bright red blood flow during the menstrual cycle. These are the two main symptoms to administer this medicine on the individual.

  4. Fraxinus Americana: Apart from irregular periods with pain in the uterus, it is also followed by breaking down spells. One experiences cramps in the feet during this type of cyst. In such conditions, the best natural homeopathic therapy that can be administered is Fraxinus Americana.

  5. Calcarea Fluorica: This is a common medicine which is given to those patients who have extremely large tumours. These tumours are also characterised by their unique hardness.

Uterine cysts are a common problem in women and can be treated effectively. One needs to be alert about the symptoms and must immediately report to a specialized homeopathic practitioner for an effective administration of medicines, which may lead to a successful cure.

PCOS - Lifestyle Changes That Can Help!

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology

PCOS - Lifestyle Changes That Can Help!

PCOS, also known as Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome, is a clinical condition in which women’s sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone are out of a proper balance. This leads to multiple growths of ovarian cysts (benign masses in the ovaries). PCOS causes problems with women’s menstrual cycle, pregnancy. It also causes cardiac problems and problems in appearance. Though the exact cause for developing PCOS is still unknown known, doctors say Genetics play an important role in it. Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another factor behind developing PCOS.

Lifestyle changes are the keys to living a healthy life. This is a commonly known fact though we hardly tend to stick to it. In cases of PCOS, lifestyle modifications are of severe importance. A healthy lifestyle is considered as the main step in managing PCOS. In the case of PCOS patients, lifestyle modifications help in reducing insulin resistance, improving other hormonal problems, improving menstrual cycle, improving fertility and preventing further long-term complications.

Here are some tips to living a healthier life for PCOS patients, to get you started with!

Dietary Changes: Bringing about a change in your regular diet is very important if you are a PCOS patient. Low carbohydrate diets, specifically with complex carbohydrates, which are high in fibre are recommended for PCOS patients. High fibre carbohydrates include whole grain bread and cereals, whole wheat pasta, barley, brown rice, beans. Junk foods are to be avoided as much as possible. The intake of simple carbohydrates is to be limited and that of complex carbohydrates is to be done. The Carbohydrate and Glycemic Index (GI) in carbohydrates is important because carbohydrates with a low GI produce lower glucose levels and insulin levels after consumption, in comparison with carbohydrates with a high GI. Good food choices and a consistent eating pattern throughout the day will lead to a more even pattern of blood glucose levels.

Weight check: For PCOS patients keeping the weight under check is primarily important. Weight loss can reduce both insulin and androgen levels and may restore ovulation. No single specific dietary approach is best, but losing weight by cutting down on your daily calorie intake may help with polycystic ovary syndrome, especially if you're overweight or obese.

Physical activity: Regular exercise seems to be most effective in improving insulin resistance, which is of great significance in PCOS as this leads to many further complications. Regular physical activity helps to reduce androgen, improve insulin resistance. It also helps to regulate the menstrual cycle, induce ovulation, improve fertility, increase energy levels and improve self-esteem.

Thus, lifestyle modifications reduce complications related to PCOS to a great extent and help you in living a healthy, happy life.

Diagnosis and Treatment

The infertility of the male partner is usually diagnosed by your specialist by evaluating the medical condition and past histories of surgical procedures, sexual practices etc. Infertility can also be diagnosed by analysing the semen. The test for Semen Analysis should be done after 3 days of abstinence and the sample should be given in the lab.

Male infertility can be treated by hormonal replacement therapies and procedures, counselling or medication (for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation) and procedures to retrieve sperm which is then used for artificial insemination.
