Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are concerned about diabetes. It could had been better had you provided us with latest fasting and hba1c levels along with other test reports. For the proper management of diabetes it is advised that the patient should exercise regularly, maintain diet and medicine as advised. Regarding your concern for home remedies it is my humble request not to waste time in them and start on treatment asap. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

Mr. lybrate-user, Kidneys are affected not by the anti-diabetes drugs but by diabetes itself. Diabetes damages small and large blood vessels. Small blood vessel damage results in retinal damage, kidney (filtering membrane damage) affection and erectile dysfunction. Persistent high blood glucose is the main reason for kidney damage and not the drugs. If you shift to alternate medicines which have absolutely no treatment for diabetes then there can be further high glucose levels leading to more severe complications. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Hi onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. Take about 5-10 gm root powder of Ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better. You can take ayurvedic medicines too along with this.

Mr dosage of thyrofit (100 mcg) being taken by your wife appears to be ok, because her tsh level is still very high. She should test the levels every 8 weeks and adjust the dosage accordingly. Your dose of thyrofit (25 mcg) also looks ok, but get the thyroid functions done every 2 - 3 months and adjust the dose either up wards or downwards.

Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.
