What is thyroid disease? How does it causes How does it is related to high blood pressure.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, "Thyroid disease" is term that encompasses a number of disorders associated with thyroid gland. There can be excess secretion called as Hyperthyroidism and lack of secretion or deficiency known as Hypothyroidism. Both these conditions cause multiple problems. The exact reasons are difficult to identify. Iodine deficiency and autoimmune problems are associated. In hyperthyroidism BP may be more. Thanks.

This much of sugars can be controlled by 3 ways 1) life style modifications I mean she needs to do 30 min of exercise regularly like swimming, brisk walking etc this will decrease insulin resistance 2) she should eat diabetic diet 3) change of medicine I thing she should add newer drugs called gliptins to it just a single tab will take her sugars normal.

I'm suffering from Loose-Stools since past 20 days, got admitted twice in the hospital. Medical history is like that Since 20 years I'm patient of Diabetes. Since last 7 years BP and Thyroid. And In June 2017, During an angiography a blockage was diagnosed and treated with a Stent. For loose stools, a bunch of blood tests, urine tests, Stool tests along with Stool Culture, Colonography, CT Scan n Ultrasound whole abdominal we're done and all were normal. Still Loose stools starts after 3-4 days of normal stool pass. Now the Physician and Gastro brings to my knowledge that this may be case of Diabetic Diarrhea, as all the symptoms matched with my condition: Pure Liquid Loose Stool, Painless, Frequency increases at night and I'm on insulin for last 13 yrs. I wanted to know, Is there a proper treatment what will be the future treatment, how long it will take to stop loose stools and have proper and normal stool.

You seem to have been through a gamut of investigations which have yielded no significant finding to explain the diarrhoea. You have not mentioned if any emperical treatment was given, hence I will assume none was given. I would consider diabetic diarrhoea and/or Irritable bowel Syndrome as possibilities. Irrespective of the cause, I would recommend a detailed evaluation of metabolic parameters and optimize them one-by-one. This will not only help the body to control the diarrhoea but will translate into long term health and wellness at multiple levels.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

Hypothyroidism irregular menstrual period is one of the commonest symptoms. Along with that there may be some times excess flow. Since you are on treatment for just 2 months, it may take a bit longer for complete recovery from symptoms. When treatment is effective tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If that is achieved then most symptoms will be in check.

Here are some causes and treatments of hypertension

Hello this is Dr. Chhavi Bansal and I am practicing Homeopathy at Homeosure-Home of Homeopathy and Wellness, Pritampura. Today I’ll be discussing about Hypertension which is the most common emerging lifestyle disorder these days. Hypertension is defines as elevation of blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure of flowing blood on the inner walls of the blood vessels and it depends on various factors like the pumping force of the heart, the resistance of the blood vessels and the amount of blood flowing through the vessels. As I have previously told that it is a lifestyle disorder, its development has been attributed to various lifestyle changes like poor diet, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, poor sleeping habits, work stress, mental stress.


It is often termed as the ‘silent killer’ because in many of the cases its symptoms do not manifest in the beginning of the cases and usually manifests itself with complications. Also many people do not give importance to hypertension until and unless they develop complications. Hypertension can be of two types: primary or essential and secondary hypertension depending on the causes of hypertension. And in majority of the cases, almost 90-95% cases there is no underline cause to hypertension and this is termed as Primary or Essential Hypertension.

Secondary Hypertension is the one where there is some kind of underlining medical condition which needs to be treated there. Now coming to the risk factors of hypertension, these factors can be modifiable and non-modifiable. The non-modifiable factor includes: Age like it is more common in later ages, Race because it is more common in African Americans and Genetic, because hypertension has been found running in families. The Modifiable risk factors are obesity, smoking, much intake of alcohol, caffeine, fatty food, higer level of cholesterol, high sodium diet, low potassium diet, prolonged stress or prolonged use of OCPs.


Now what is the harm from Hypertension? Prolonged hypertension can create a lot many complications: it can damage your eyes it can damage your kidneys, it can damage your heart and lead you to lot of diseases which can create loss of vision, kidney, heart diseases and stroke.


Now coming to the prevention or treatment of hypertension, as been previously told that there are various risk factors which make you prone to develop hypertension. So prevention is the best treatment of hypertension, if the risk factors are controlled then it will definitely control your hypertension or at least delay it. So the best prevention would be to have a healthy lifestyle which includes cutting down your alcohol and caffeine intake, quit smoking and maintaining your weight, adding physical activities to your routine daily, decreasing your sodium intake and increasing your potassium intake.
Homeopathy has wonderful results in delaying Hypertension and controlling Hypertension.

If you have any further queries regarding hypertension feel free to consult me through Lybrate.

It depends on the extent of liver and kidney damage. If its severe, insulin is the safest option as oral medicines may not be allowed. But if the problem is not major, she can be controlled by tablets. In either case, dietary changes are also required.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Control of Diabetes is a is therapy done by a combined and serious team consisting of The Patient and the physician. Physician advises. Unless the recipient, I mean the patient seriously asks Physician is also can not give you the fullest. Its a psychological bond which is above all a professional advice only. Your uncontrolled diabetes may due to either your non compliance to the advice of physician or incompetent advice of the physician. I have no reason to believe the second part of the statement. I may believe at this juncture to stick to the following part and retest your BS fter 15 days. If you see any improvement, go back to your doctor and listen list him and follow his advice. If he is not giving your satisfactory attention, I know you know what to do. A patent always choose he physician not the physician choose his patient. He may love him with empathy. 1) Brisk Walking 5 Km daily - whether over weight or not, of course if it is not contraindicated by your treating physician. 2) Keep your Body Mass Index within 24 Kg / Meter Square of your body surface area, that is your healthy weight - by exercise and dietary management. 3) Diets - STOP the following - Sweet, Sugar, Potato, Fried substances, Starchy foods, Sweet drinks, Canned juices, Ice creams, Processed juice of any type. Butter, Cheese Avoid rice (if at all never more than one leveled Tea Plateful / day) Normal or high protein. Low fat. High fibre - Leafy vegetables + Vegetables (particularly less starchy and coloured one, which contains more antioxidants) 4) Meditation for 20 mins daily Hope its OK for the time being.

Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,.

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Have you been trying to have kids for a long time? Is inability and delay giving you sleepless nights?  It is important to know that Stress alone is a major factor for infertility.

Can Stress Have an Effect on Your Fertility?

If your mind and body is under stress your body is signaled to release a hormone - Adrenalin. This is a stress relieving hormone and gives your body the rush to face the stress. This hormone inhibits the utilization of the hormone Progesterone, which is essential for fertility. Also during stress Prolactin, another hormone, is relapsed which also interferes with infertility. Hence to conceive its essential that your anxiety levels are under control.

Chronic Stress also decreases libido:

Chronic stress may cause lack of libido as well as a decrease in general fertility. This has become such a common issue that they have created a name for it Stress Induced Reproductive Dysfunction. These facts are very important to consider if you have been trying to conceive with no results. It also shows that stress relief should be a part of every couple's conception plan even if they are going through IVF.

Ways to reduce stress & improve fertility:

If you are having difficulty to conceive, it's imperative that you get fertility tests done and also evaluate your life. Look out for the stress points that may be hindering a relationship. Remember defeating the stress may be the solution to your worries.

  • Reduce stress in your life: The issues in your life may be work or result related. You need to learn to balance your personal and professional life. The sooner you do it the better; after all you are preparing yourself to welcome a new born in your life.

  • Change your reactions: Get a hang of the situation and react accordingly. Over reaction to a situation can harm your body and mind. Stop bothering so much about the future.

  • Let few things be the way they are: Stop getting bothered about people. Remember by nature everything will fall in place. Let few things be the way they are.

  • Make it your habit to reduce stress: Call it an obsession or a practice, train your mind to choose options where there is less stress.

  • Sleep well: A good rest is essential for a healthy mind and body. Meditate, do yoga or seek counseling. Go for facials if it sooths you.

Please note that if your fertility reports are normal, then it's just a matter of time. Give you, your partner and your body time. There are certain medical complications or disorders that can also be responsible for infertility. Be calm and composed so that you are able to face the rough waters clearly with your partner.

Yes you have a chance of getting diabetes. Go for a diabetic check up every 6 month. You can prevent it by following a good diet and exercise. Follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week.

Lybrate-user, your thyroid hormone levels and tsh are fairly normal. Therefore thyronorm 25 mcg per day appears to be helping you. You are having grade 1 obesity with 30.35 kgs/bmi (normal <23 kg/m2). That may be one of the reasons for cholesterol being high. To reduce that you will have to control your diet, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and items made of maida or with other refined flours. Daily 1 hour's walking is essential for reducing the weight. Your ideal body weight should be 61 kgs, hence your diet should be calculated to give calories based on that weight. That will help in weight reduction as well as normalising cholesterol. Thanks.
