I am a thyroid patient. Lately am having skin problems. On showing it to doctor it was told it is due to thyroid. Is it possible to have severe skin problems due to thyroid?

Certainly hypo or hyperthyroidism can give rise to many skin problems including dryness, itching, etc. Proper anti thyroid medication along with topical creams and oral will help you depending upon the type of condition.

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

BSc
Ayurveda, Ujjain
Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

Diabetes during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. It is interesting to note that the chances of getting gestational diabetes, is one of the most common complication of pregnancy. It has increased by almost 40%. Also, gestational diabetes not only affects the health of the mother, but also the health of the baby. What usually happens with gestational diabetes is that the blood sugar level, of both the mother and the baby go above the normal level.

Ayurveda can help treat this disease. Here are the most common Ayurveda remedies for gestational diabetes.

  1. Gurmaar: Gurmaar, called "The Sugar Killer" is also known as Gymnema sylvestre in medical jargon. Gurmaar also contains gymnemic acid molecules, which are crucial because they have an anti-diabetic effect. They work by combining with glucose molecules, which are in the blood stream. These stop the glucose from entering the bloodstream. 
  2. Karela: Karela is commonly known as bitter gourd and its biological name is Momordica charantia. It has anti-diabetic properties and also contains many other micronutrients, which are crucial in preventing the complications which arise from gestational diabetes.
  3. Vizaysaar: Vizaysaar comes from the bark of a tree whose biological name is Pterocarpus marsupium. It is very useful for diabetes. If you immerse the wood of Vizaysaar in water overnight and then drink it, your blood sugar levels are expected to fall.
  4. Saptrangi: Saptrangi is biologically known as Salacia oblonga. Just like Vizaysaar, it is a tree whose bark is immersed in water and then drunk by the patient suffering from diabetes. You will know that the water is ready for drinking when it turns brown, which usually happens overnight. It is also being studied in Western herbal schools in addition to Ayurveda nowadays.
  5. Tulsi: Tulsi is a holy plant in Hindu mythology and is known as Ocimum sanctum in biological terms. It is worshiped as a holy plant because it has tremendous medicinal properties including treating many types of cancers, cough, cold, sore throat as well as reducing blood sugar.
  6. Ashwagandha: The medical name for ashwagandha is Withania somnifera. It is another great remedy for diabetes.

Good afternoon my name is ather 34 year age I am suffering from diabetes for last one year two days back I consult a diabetologist nears my home there he tested sugar level at glucometer 385 and he prescribed me two tablets Dia micron xr 60 before break fast and gluformin I 0.5 after break fast and before sleep at night. And after two days I checked my glucose level at glucometer it's show again 385 .previously I used to take guformin 500 mg.

Deciding to treat diabetes based on glucometer readings alone is not right. You should do a proper FBS, 2 hour PPBS and HbA1c in a lab and only then, such a decision should be taken.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there is no specific mention about amount of sugar to be added, but one can consume up to 8 ounces of coffee (240 ml), seems to give many benefits as claimed. If you need to add sugar, you may add about a spoonful. Thanks for the question.

It can only be controlled by appropriate medication, diet control and regular exercise and weight reduction. Thanks.

If I take thyronorm tablet. How much mg I need per tablet and for how long I have to take this and at what time. Thanx.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Kapil, Thanks for the query. Dosage of levothyroxine depends on persons body weight, TSH & T4 levels. Since there is no mention about TSH and T4 levels, it is difficult to give any opinion. Hypothyroidism is thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required every day in the body for almost every single metabolic function, hence needs to be supplemented daily for lifetime. Thanks

Hi as long as sugar levels are within limits then its ok, how ever your father's post food sugar levels are very high. He has to have strict control on diet and do meticulous walking/exercise to keep the sugar levels in control. He can try this for 2 months and recheck the sugar levels and hba1c values. If they are normal continue the above advice, if not consult the doctor who can treat diabetes. Wish your father good health

Ayurvedic Herbs That Help You In Relieving Thyroid

Situated in the neck, the thyroid gland plays an important role in the body– it produces hormones required for regulating growth. Through its role, the thyroid gland influences most metabolic processes in the body. Problems of the thyroid gland can range from simple conditions such as goiter (enlargement of the thyroid glands) to something as fatal as cancer. The most common thyroid problem is the abnormal production of hormones.

Overproduction of hormones by the thyroid gland results in ‘hyperthyroidism’ whereas underproduction of hormones causes ‘hypothyroidism’. It is necessary to take steps to deal with thyroid problems as their complications can be severe at times.

Ayurveda is a time honored system of medicine, the treatments of which have holistic healing properties. Ayurvedic treatments are free from side effects as they do not contain synthetic ingredients. In case of thyroid problems, Ayurvedic remedies focus on balancing the production of hormones. The various doshas in the body – kapha, vata and pitta are balanced, so as to promote overall wellbeing.

The various Ayurvedic herbs that help with addressing thyroid problems are –

  1. Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is a very widely used herb in Ayurvedic medicine due to its numerous benefits. It has anti-oxidizing properties which calm the brain and strengthen the immune system. It helps relieve symptoms of fatigue and inability to focus, both being indicators of thyroid problems.

  2. Bacopa: Bacopa is a herb that is extremely beneficial for the overall health of the nervous system. It helps you focus better while boosting memory capacity. It also helps in controlling and reducing inflammation.

  3. Black Walnut: Black walnut is rich in magnesium that helps in proper functioning of the thyroid gland, a deficiency of which causes thyroid problems.

  4. Bugleweed: A herb that is effective in treating cold and cough, bugleweed also has beneficial effects on the thyroid gland. It is often used as a sedative or an astringent.

  5. Coleus: Coleus is a herb that is rich in anti-oxidants, which help in minimizing free radical damage in the body. It helps in improving the functioning of the thyroid gland and also helps in the treatment of certain cardiovascular disorders.

  6. Echinacea: A herb that strengthens the immune system of the body, Echinacea plays a vital role in preventing thyroid problems. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

You need to increase medication for post meal sugar control. Alfa glucosidase inhibitors class of drugs like voglibose etc helps to control post meal sugars. Consult any diabetologist for adding them. Consume more complex carbohydrates and fibre in your diet so post meal sugar peaks will be less.

Hi, an under-functioning thyroid is a hormonal disruption that could be fixed via good eating habits and an active lifestyle. At our clinic we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification. This would be a great platform for you to be on as well.

RBS 135 mg is high. During pregnancy you should maintain blood glucose between 90 to 120 mg always. So it is necessary to get the glucose level down to that. If not on treatment, please initiate. Only Insulin has to be taken. Also get OGTT done to confirm whether there's diabetes. Thanks.

Hello, If Anti TPO antibodies titre is high, it means she has Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT), which leads to hypothyroidism. It has to be treated with thyroxine tablets and for lifetime. Drinking and smoking have no direct bad effect on thyroid gland, but will definitely affect her general health. Alcohol will damage liver and smoking the lungs. If she is not on any treatment then it is necessary to start. Thanks.

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms + Treatment

There are a number of lifestyle ailments that plague people around the world. Cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes are just a few of them. Diabetes means your blood sugar level, called glucose, is too high. Blood glucose is the main kind of sugar found in your blood and is supposed to be your main source of energy. Glucose originates from the food that you eat and is additionally made in your liver and muscles. Your blood supplies glucose to the rest of your body's cells to use as a source of energy.

Your pancreas are situated between your stomach and spine. It assists with absorption of glucose from food and discharges a hormone called insulin, into your blood. Insulin helps your blood transport glucose to all your body's cells. In some cases your body doesn't make enough insulin or the insulin doesn't work the way it ought to. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn't reach your cells.

The signs and symptoms of diabetes are as follows:

  1. Being extremely thirsty

  2. Urinating regularly

  3. Feeling hungry

  4. Feeling tired

  5. Getting thinner without attempting

  6. Wounds that mend gradually

  7. Dry, bothersome skin

  8. Feeling of pins and needles in your feet

  9. Losing sensation in your feet

  10. Hazy vision

Type 1 diabetes is found mostly in youngsters. In type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin or enough insulin because of the the body's vulnerable immune system. It protects you from contamination by getting rid of bacteria, infections, and other destructive substances.

Treatment for type 1 Diabetes:

  2. Medicines as prescribed by the specialist

  3. Healthy food choices

  6. Controlling cholesterol levels

Type 2 diabetes can influence individuals at any age. It is known to affect moderately aged and elderly individuals. People who are overweight and inert are more prone to type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes normally starts with insulin resistance, a condition that happens when fat, muscle and liver cells do not utilise insulin to supply glucose to the body's cells to draw energy. Accordingly, the body needs more insulin to help glucose enter the cells. At such an instance, the pancreas start producing more insulin. Over the long haul, the pancreas do not make enough insulin when glucose levels increase, for example, after meals. If your pancreas can no more make enough insulin, you should treat your type 2 diabetes.

Treatment for type 2 Diabetes:

  1. Utilising diabetes prescriptions

  2. Settling on solid food decisions

  3. Being physically active

  4. Controlling your circulatory strain levels

  5. Controlling your cholesterol levels

  6. Weight loss is the most important if you are overweight. Avoid junk food and sugar, exercise regularly and take medicines on-time. 

  7. Regular follow-up to a physician is important

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
