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. Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hypothyroidism Calcarea carb , Sepia ,Lycopodium, Graphites and Nux Vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism 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

Since you already have chest pain with a positive TMT and are taking medications then you must have already got evaluated by a cardiologist, who also must have suggested that you these medicine lifestyle precautions and that should get a angiography done to find out the level of blockage in your heart arteries. And in case you have not consulted a cardiologist then you should at the earliest. CAG is the only way to find out if there is blockage and if that blockage is significant then to stent it timely before it leads to a heart attack.

Yes overweight or obese people have a higher risk of developing diabetes. Most patients do not have any symptoms. However, there may be excessive thirst or urination or recurrent infections. Only way to confirm is checking sugars at least once a year.

1. Reduce your weight to 70 kg 2. Do regular exercise. 3. Avoid direct sugars and high carbohydrate food 4. Use food rich in fiber. Repeat blood sugar after 1 month if it is still high then you need medical management.

Type 1 diabetes is insulin dependent but in type 2 diabetes which is generally due to genetic predisposition and our unhealthy lifestyle so if you follow good diet with proper exercise you can bring your blood sugar level under control and together with it a correct constitutional treatment will help you.

Should I see a Fertility Specialist?

Should I see a Fertility Specialist?

Should I see a fertility specialist?


 

Perhaps you've been under a lot of stress lately. Or, maybe your partner is always traveling during the right time. If you hear yourself making excuses month after month for seemingly unexplained infertility, then it might be time to sit down with a fertility specialist to uncover the root cause of the problem.


 

What many men and women don't realize is that early diagnosis is key. Many times, if a problem is diagnosed, it can take months to treat and suddenly there you are, almost a year later, starting to try all over again.


 

The solution? don't wait. Here, we've narrowed down 4 signs that it's time to pick up the phone or hop online - to make an appointment for a fertility consultation asap. But as a general rule, if you are even asking yourself this question, the answer is yes.


 

1. You've been trying and trying, and trying


 

Trying to conceive with no luck can be incredibly frustrating, but the fact is that 1 in 8 couples struggle with infertility. Experts agree that women over the age of 35 should wait no more than 6 months of trying before seeing a specialist. That wait extends to just one year for the under 35 crowd. It's also a good idea for your partner to join you and not just to hold your hand: studies show that male partners contribute to over 40 percent of infertility cases.


 

2. You have a pre-existing condition


 

There are a number of health conditions that can have a huge impact on a woman's fertility and while some of these may have been diagnosed as early on as childhood, others are silent and can go completely undetected. From uterus abnormalities and hormonal imbalances to endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), the sooner these issues are brought to light and treated, the better your chances for a happy, healthy baby.


 

3. You've had more than one miscarriage


 

Many women have multiple miscarriages and go on to have perfectly normal pregnancies. However, this can also indicate that chromosomal abnormalities, hormonal issues or even structural issues in the cervix or uterine lining are at play. Fortunately, most of these conditions are treatable, but only after a proper examination can the diagnosis be made.


 

4. You've had irregular or absent periods


 

There is certainly no shortage of potential reasons for why you may be experiencing menstrual irregularity. Diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and increased exercise are all common causes. Many are surprised to learn that over-exercising and weight loss can actually cause you to have no period (amenorrhea) whatsoever. The ever present relationship between stress and infertility can wreak havoc on regular periods, too.

By taking notes on any and all symptoms you may be experiencing and discussing them with a fertility specialist, you'll be able to diagnose your own personal reason even sooner.
