Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in your diet you should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I have hypothyroidism so gaining weight very fast having skin problems and pain please help me to reduce weight.
Hi hypothyroidism is quite common these days. If you are already taking thyronorm, then there is no need to worry about this problem. The weight that is increasing is due to excessive food. Its better to consult personally a dietician. Also start doing exercise everyday. This problem can be overcome easily. All the best.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in b vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Flax oil, selenium: tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: this amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce t3 and t4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid few foods in hypothroidism i. E. Caffeine products tea, coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine, kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take some relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also. Take treatment for hypothyroidism:- tab. Thyroxine is used in hypothyroidism. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Do tests thyroid profile every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor regular on time.

Dear lybrate user homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure, changes in diet may give you mild relief but taking everything in moderation is the rule for healthy life, generally more proteinaceous foods as legumes, red meat are said to be avoided,

Hi Medicine +Diet×Exercise I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem with absorption of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down & weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. Hope this helps.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For diabetic neuropathy, your physician who is helping ic controlling blood glucose is good enough. If you are already on Pragabalin, then that happens to be the medicine most often used to reduce neuropatic pain. Most important is to have an excellent blood glucose control with fasting <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<7. If you want any help I may be able do the same if you come in a private consultation. Thanks.

You may kindly check your glucose fasting, pp- (oral glucose tolerance test) & glycosylated haemoglobin (hba1c) along with lipid profile & bp. Kindly reduce your weight by following a diet chart & exercising daily as obesity increases the chance of developing diabetes, high bp, heart disease, cancer, gout, gall stones, osteoarthritis, sleep apnoea, etc.

Yes hba1c of less than 7 is advisable according to ada criteria. Hba1c is average test for last 3 months blood sugar control and more reliable test. Get it checked. More tighter control in elderly risks frequent hypoglycemia episodes so tighter control without hypoglycemia is to be targetted.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Allopathy can give quick results but is not very safe for long term uses if steroids are used. Homeopathic is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i. E old patches shows some recovery but new white patches continue to come even when we are using homeopathy. If one think about using ayurveda there is no good vaidya who is expertise in vitiligo. At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. With a expertise in treating thousands of patients in past years. Kayakalp global is leading skin clinic in india to treat vitiligo. For detail replies regarding 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can contact clinic for details via lybtate. You can send pictures of vitiligo effected parts. We will review your case and will guide you best possible treatment and time frame required.

My sugar Level 300 to 400.
Taking oral antidiabetic drugs initially when your pancreas is already stressed vl create unhealthy living after few years. Kindly do a hba1c test and if its too high then get started on insulin for first 3 months. The best way is this. Tests to b taken are lipid profile renal function test fbs; ppbs; hba1c urine analysis.
