I hope all the investigations are done and diagnosis is proved. Thyroid swelling in children are uncommon and needs to be properly evaluated. Reactive lymphadenopathy if not responding to antibiotics I suggest you to get a repeat fnac of thyroid and lymph nodes.

Dear sir I am suffering from diabetes for the last six months. Please suggest me the best cure to get rid of it.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure possible. The treatment has to go on for lifetime. Plus you have to achieve a strict sugar control - fasting closer to 100mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<6.8. Otherwise you are inviting all the long term serious consequences of diabetes related to every single important vital organ in the body. At your age it could be t1 which needs only insulin injections.

In my opinion, the hairfall could be related to inadequate dosage of Thyroid meds, nutrient or imbalance of other hormones such as progesterone/Testosterone/Estradiol. Additionally, I find that many of my patients get significant relief from hairfall issue when I prescribe a combination of T3 and T4 rather than plain T4 which is in meds such as Thyronorm/Eltroxin.

The only treatment I feel effective is weight control and regular exercises especially quadriceps exercises. If its bone on bone grade 4 arthritis which can be very much seen on standing knee X-rays the treatment would be replacement. All the interim measures as stated above are not long term as its more of a mechanical problem and do not offer long term results in sever OA.

Pure organic honey is not bad. Unfortunately the honey available in the supermarket is usually adultrated with sugar which is bad. If you are sure of the source of the honey you may give it to her in moderation. More important is managing her diet and metabolic balance. Appropriate supplements, excercise and positive lifestyle changes equally important.

You need to ahve tablet like Volibo with food to reduce sugar absorption. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Infertility - Ayurvedic Herbs For It!

Infertility - Ayurvedic Herbs For It!

Infertility is a medical condition which is characterised by problems in successful conception, even after prolonged and frequent unprotected sex amongst a couple. Infertility may occur due to problems with either the male, the female partner and in many cases both of them. This condition can cause much strife in a relationship not just within the individuals but also be a cause for social embarrassment. The causes of infertility could be-

  1. Testicular injury or deformed testis,

  2. Irregular menstrual periods,

  3. Problems with erections,

  4. Uterus is ill-shaped,

  5. Premature ejaculation,

  6. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome,

  7. Pelvic inflammatory diseases caused by Sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea and Chlamydia,

  8. Scanty sperm count,

  9. Thyroid disorders,

  10. Blockage of the fallopian tube.

Other lifestyle related reasons could be excessive alcohol consumption, aging, diabetes, obesity, high pressure and as a side effect of radiation therapy or other medications.

Ayurveda and Infertility-

According to Ayurvedic scriptures, infertility occurs when there is a deficiency of nutrients in the Shukra Dhatu of an individual. This might occur as a result of indigestion and excessive toxic content in the human body. This could be caused due to excessive consumption of spicy foods or if they have chronic stress or anxiety. The Ayurvedic remedies boost the nutrition of the Shukra Dhatu in order to boost fertility. The most potent Ayurvedic herbs which can cure infertility are as follows:

  1. A prescribed consumption of the powder of dried banyan bark along with sugar might help to cure infertility.

  2. The inclusion of cumin and turmeric powder in regulated dosages in your daily food might also help to facilitate fertility.

  3. A consumption of the root of the herb Ashwagandha for 3 times a day has also been shown to be beneficial.

  4. A daily consumption of the powder of Vanari Kalpa in warm milk might help in curing any problems related to the ejaculation of semen.

  5. Consuming a mixture of the powder of Vrushya vati in warm milk, it might help to increase the sperm count.

  6. The consumption of Ayurvedic preparation of phalasarpi (a mixture of the herbs Kustha, manjistha, Triphala, tagara, haldi etc.) might help to deal with the problems of infertility in women.

  7. Yoga also has many effective asanas or poses which help boost both male and female fertility and thus may help in correcting infertility caused due to physical factors such as injuries or deformities.

  8. Changes in lifestyle also have to be brought in such as quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption among others. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I am 28 years old girl. Since January 2017 my lips are becoming dry. I applied so many balms and other moisturizers but nothing helped me. Then I asked a relative of mine who is a doctor about it. He suggested me to check my Thyroid. I checked it and found my TSH 11.5. I started taking Thyronorm 75 mg. After sometime one of my colleague gave me a reference of a homeopathic doctor. I consulted him and started taking Homeopathic medicines without stopping thyronorm as homeopathic doc asked me to keep continuing it. Later after 1 month I again checked up my TSH level and this time it was .03. Can you give me a right path as I asked so many friends of mine who are doctor they said stop taking homeopathic as there is no other alternative of Thyronorm. And when I asked to my homeopathic doctor he said he will treat it in 6 months for sure. I checked up my Anti TPO too and it is >1300. Please help me out.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disease. In this condition your thyroid gland does not produce adequate amount of that hormone or not at all. This hormone is required every day for multiple metabolic functions in our body like maintaining normal body temperature, regulating various other vital activities of the body. Hence, it has to be made available every day from outside. If not supplemented then all the symptoms of hypothyroidism will reappear. Plus you have high Anti TPO antibodies level. This shows your hypothyroidism is due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT). In such a situation only remedy is taking Levothyroxine as advised for lifetime. Unfortunately the practitioners of alternate medicine claim that it (Hypothyroidism) can be cured. Which is not a fact. Like diabetes this condition will remain with you. Hence, there is no alternative than continuing the treatment. Thanks.
