I am suffering from thyroid for last 5 years kindly advice me what to do next taken medicine eltroxin 75.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I will advise you to go for homoeopathic treatmnt for Thyroid.Although,the path of homoeopathy for your problem iss quiet difficult but very fruitful because you are already taking ELTROXIN for 5 years. Either go on taking just 1 tab eltroxin early morning life long with increased dose at regular intervals along with it side effects or try to adopt a difficult but fruitful path of homoeopathy for next 2-3 years in which no doubt that you will have to regularily take 2 homoeopathic medicines 3 times a day as compared to ELTROXIN( Only once a day nd finish for the day) but with time we will slowly decrease the dose of ELTROXIN( In next 8-12 months of taking homoeopathic treatment you will get rid of ELTROXIN altogether) .And once Eltroxin is out of your life we will start decreasing the dose of homoeopathic medicines.nd in 2-3 years you will be medicine nd Thyroid free. So ass saidearlier either choose the difficult but fruitful part of homoeopathy for 2-3 yearss or just take i tab ELTROXIN life long along with the sideeffects of such mediciness. Choice is yours

Your sugars are definitely on a higher side. You have tried exercise and diet modification but no medicine yet. I suggest this is the time to add medicine. Delaying this will postpone your diabetes related complications by significant extent. Any confusion then feel free to revert.

taking 18 x 50 mcg tablets at a time is not going to cause any problematic symptoms either immediately or later also. Since one week has passed you need not worry about it. But do not repeat such mistakes again.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned suggest you have a pre-diabetic state. Diabetes is diagnosed if FBG is equal to or more than 126 mg & PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c% 6.5% and above. So your present situation is pre-diabetic state. At this stage, if one follows a modified lifestyle, then diabetes can be prevented. For that you need to maintain near normal weight (65 kgs), exercise regularly for over 1 hour and take a proper balanced diet and avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made out of maida. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks (colas), alcohol and smoking. Red meat also is not good. Thanks.

Hi Burning sensation of feet hands can happen due to vitamin b12 deficiency also. So take vitamin b12 supplements everyday. Make sure you keep your diabetes always under control. exercise everyday. Eat lots of vegetables and greens. If you still continue to have these symptoms consult for prescription.

My mother was admitted to neighbouring hospital after falling due to slippage on floor. She is 72 years old and type 2 diabetic with controlled diabetes 150/200 with glimestar 1 mg 2 pills per day for last 15 years. It was observed on MRI that a compression fracture on back bone and two small cracks on pelvic bone. During traction and physiotherapy she exhibited severe shortness of breath and doctor carried out sonography and found some abnormality of the sort enlargement of heart. Upon pulmonary angiography bilateral pulmonary embolism was observed. Suddenly the other treatments stopped and some blood thinning medication under critical observations for 5 days conducted. Later she was brought to ward and two days was in observations and discharged suggesting if possible to walk 10-20 steps and increase slowly wearing proper belt. Initially she was only able to stand with support and walk only 2-3 steps with great difficulty. Normal diabetes medicine and daily 1 tablet of warfarin was prescribed. The major problem after discharge observed was her reluctance to swallow sufficient food and water. With great difficulty only juices, milk with energy drink, dal rice smashed was accepted only in limited quantities with reason of tasteless in mouth and vomiting sensations. All the food given was not swallowed to full extent, instead kept in mouth and she use slowly split the same after some time. Standing on her feet was also not possible and she was reluctant even to her moving on bed itself for frequent change of position. Sugar level increased to 200/300 and the tablet increased to 2 mg. Meanwhile blood was observed in urine and upon test Warfarin was stopped for 10 days. Within next 2-3 days, urine turned to white and upon /urine test /infection was detected and antibiotics prescribed. But the very next day the infection became severe as she was observed very uneasy. Upon hospitalization once again, she is kept in intensive care with antibiotic treatment and signs of improvement observed but the problem of tasteless in mouth is concern. At present the food is being fed through pipe in nose. We are very much worried about the future as without proper food, there is no scope of survival. Can you please help how to come out of such dreadful situation?

MrSatish Kumar, To give any suggestions I need to know her weight, (kgs), height, waist circumference, fasting and PP sugar levels (current), HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of exercise done daily. Based on these details I will be able to guide. It is better if you come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific guidelines. In the mean time she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, (no maida). Exercise daily for at least 1 hour that will help in reducing insulin resistance and improve it's action, plus increase glucose utilisation.

My mother suffers from diabetes from 16 years it is not in control. What we have to do?
Mr Abhishek, If diabetes is not in control . means either the treatment is inadequate or diet and exercise are not enough. Then we have to give a relook at the present drug treatment and dietary intake as well as exercise. A person with diabetes has to adapt a modified lifestyle - meaning taking a restricted diet that gives exact amount of calories based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of physical activity. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, red meat and egg yolk. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise daily for 1 hour, best is to do brisk walking. Do a regular blood sugar check up and HbA1c% once in 3 to 6 months.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.
