My Blood Sugar level was 176/316 with Metformin 500 mg BD, voglibose0.3 at 0.1.0, I am taking for the past 7-8 yearsanti diabetic medicines. The Doctor advised me to go for Insulin 10 unit morning and evening. To avoid insulin I gone for AYURVEDA IME -9 AYUSH 82 Research product a n ayurved product approved by min of Health (asper TV ADVERTISEMENT) Subsequently I contacted an AYURVED Practising Doctorwho also gave some capsules. Now I completely Stopped Allopathy and taking AYURVED medicines. After consuming 20 days of AYURVED my Blood Sugar Fasting is 309 and PP is 520. Kindly suggest me which system to follow.

Mr. lybrate-user, Please understand for diabetes only treatment option available is in modern medicine, either oral anti-diabetes tablets and/or Insulin injections. So please shift back to appropriate drugs as earlier. However, it is essential to look at what dosage of the tablets or Insulin has to be given. Plus please check HbA1c% and come back in a private conversation, where I will be able to guide specifically. As in this communication I am supposed to give only general guidelines. Thanks.

Hi, You can ask your mother to follow few exercises for shaping the fatty arms: -Weight lifting: You can use a 2 liter cold drink bottle or a water bottle for this exercise. If you have a pair of dumbbells at home it works out just fine. The aim is to reach out for something which weighs around one kilo. Hold that item with both your hands and lift it over your head. Your arms should be straight, as this is your starting position. Now lower the weight, by taking it behind your back. You need to reach it as low as you can. Make sure that you don’t hurt yourself. Bring up the weight above your head, again. The slower you move your arms, the more toned your arms will get. It is important to keep your upper arms close to your head and ears. Also try to practice this exercise in front of the mirror if you can, it will help you improve the style. You need to do 3 sets of 20 reps, which means you will move the item 60 items above your head. After every set you can take a rest of one minute. -Scissors: It is one of the best cardio workouts to lose weight. This exercise as mentioned in the name resembles a scissors being opened and closed. You need to begin by standing straight and lifting your arms to shoulder height, in front of you. Stretch your arms to the side and bring them back to your front, the right hand should overlap the left. This resembles an open scissors. You need to stretch them to the side again and bring them back to the front. This time your left arm should overlap your right. This is a complete rep and this exercise needs to be done in 3 sets of 10 reps every day. -Arm circles: You can hold two 600 ml water bottles in two hands while doing the arm circles. Stand with your feet placed shoulder width apart and arms extend straight to your sides, raised at shoulder height. Now, do 50 small circles with your hands by rotating them in the forward direction. Then switch to 50 small backward circles. The backward and forward arm movement tones all the muscles of the arms including the triceps, biceps, shoulders and back muscles as well.

Prediabetic means prediabetic not diabetic. Everyone's blood sugar changes always depending on food taken, workout done, when blood checked etc. It is dynamic. Just follow proper dieting and excrcises, nutritional supplements. Can certainly avoid diabetes if proper consistent care is taken.

Smoking can affect your appetite. Muscle gain is ideally attained with exercise and a proper diet. If you have hyperthyroidism, then you will have a problem gaining weight. Then there is the possibility that your level of metabolism is higher than normal due to many factors one of which is stress. So it is worth meeting with a counselor and talking about the stress and leading a more composed life.

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

The IMPORTANCE of early treatment

Although a person's vision may be good, changes taking place in the retina may require treatment. Most sight loss due to diabetes is preventable if treated early. The earlier the treatment is given the more effective it is.

In a nutshell: Early diagnosis is vital.

Annual retinal screening appointment is quintessential.

Worsening of vision may not necessarily mean diabetic retinopathy. It may simply be a problem that can be rectified with glasses.

Vision lost to diabetic retinopathy is sometimes irreversible. Women with diabetes who become pregnant should have a comprehensive dilated eye exam as soon as possible. Additional exams during pregnancy may be needed.

Multiple studies have shown that controlling diabetes slows the onset and worsening of diabetic retinopathy. Other trials have also demonstrated that controlling elevated blood pressure and cholesterol can reduce the risk of vision loss among people with diabetes.

Treatment for diabetic retinopathy is often delayed until it starts to progress to a complicated or irreversible stage. Comprehensive frequent dilated eye exams are needed more frequently as diabetic retinopathy becomes more severe. People with a high risk of developing complications may need a comprehensive dilated eye exam as often as every month.

To summarize, early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy is important.

Don't wait for the vision to deteriorate to have an eye test.

Inform your eye specialist in case you notice changes to your vision.

Feel free to ask questions or express fears about your treatment.

Strict control of sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol reduce the risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

Smoking increases your risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

Hello it appears the insulin dose is not enough. Plus you have to check hba1c and lipid profile as well as creatinine. Then increase insulin dosage every 2 days by 2 units. Simultaneously observe sugar levels regularly. This will also help you to have better control. Also exercise regularly 1 hr a day.

It could be due to prolonged standing/sitting/Excess salt intake/Less hemoglobin/ kidney problem. Get your urine examined for Re/Me, test your blood for hemoglobin. Blood urea/uric acid/creatimine and consult doct or with report for advice and treatment. Avoid prolong sitting/standing. Keep your foot end elevated, take less salt in diet.

Thyroid Problems And Treatment With Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Thyroid Problems And Treatment With Homeopathy

It is extremely remarkable to note how homeopathic treatments have gained immense acceptance and recognition in the field of modern-day treatment procedures, offering the most effective and safe medication options. A number of thyroid problems can, in fact, be alleviated with the help of homeopathic remedies, also saving you the trouble of encountering unwanted and unforeseen side effects of the normal prescription drugs. The most common problems pertaining to the thyroid gland are possibly hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Both the conditions can be cured with utmost efficacy when the right drugs are prescribed.

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathy

Hypothyroidism is the medical condition wherein the thyroid gland underperforms and produces insufficient amount of hormones required for the normal functioning of the body. The most effective homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are:

  1. Nux Vomica: This remedy is usually recommended to those patients who suffer from extreme temperament and ones who feel chilly often without any particular reason. Obstinate constipation in the patients is also curbed by this medicine. Women with prolonged periods are also prescribed Nux Vomica to decrease the incidence of period related problems.
  2. Lycopodium Clavatum: Patients of hypothyroidism who complain of gastric troubles are the ones who usually opt for Lycopodium Clavatum. Excessive hair fall as a result of hypothyroidism can also be cured with it.
  3. Calcera Carbonica: It is usually ranked as the best medicine for treating hypothyroidism, especially in patients who suffer from cold feet, extreme fatigue, and bowel problems.

Hyperthyroidism And Homeopathy

A condition wherein the thyroid gland tends to be overactive and produces more than the requisite level of hormones is usually referred to as a classic case of hyperthyroidism. Homeopathic treatments for this abnormality aim at treating the root causes to achieve best results:

  1. Lachesis Mutus: Hyperthyroidism patients who persistently complain of rising body heat are prescribed this. It also lessens the problems of fatigue and queasiness.
  2. Iodium: Patients who lose their weight quickly despite maintaining a healthy diet are prescribed doses of Iodium. Anxiousness and fatigue are also cured along with other problems.
  3. Conium Maculatum: Patients who suffer from acute depression and refuse to participate in day-to-day activities are generally given this. Trembling and profuse perspiration are treated effectively with the help of Conium Maculatum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Silent Thyroiditis - Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Silent Thyroiditis - Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

The thyroid gland influences almost all the metabolic processes in the human body through the hormones it releases. The swelling or inflammation of this butterfly-shaped gland, when triggered by an immune response is known as Silent Thyroiditis. It can lead to hyperthyroidism i.e. the overproduction of hormones followed by hypothyroidism or insufficient hormone production.

The exact cause of this thyroid disorder is unknown but it is known to affect more women than men. Women who have just delivered a baby are also more vulnerable to this disorder. Some of the probable causes for this condition are autoimmune responses, discontinuation of steroid therapy, removal of the adrenal gland and treatment for cancer. A family history of silent thyroiditis can also increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease.

In its early stages, the symptoms of this disorder are those of a hyperactive thyroid gland. These symptoms can last for as long as 3 months. In most cases, these symptoms are mild. In some cases, people may not experience these symptoms at all and may only notice symptoms of the second stage of this disorder or hypothyroidism. The most commonly experienced symptoms of this disorder include:

  1. Insomnia or difficulty falling asleep

  2. Tiredness and weakness

  3. Frequent bowel movements

  4. Intolerance towards heat and excessive sweating

  5. Increased appetite

  6. Weight loss

  7. Irregular menstruation: this may be short in the early stages and heavy in later stages

  8. Muscle cramps

  9. Irritability

  10. Nervousness and palpitations

  11. Hair loss and dry skin

Silent Thyroiditis can be diagnosed by a doctor through a physical examination and a few tests. Some of the signs your doctor will look out for are:

  1. An enlarged thyroid gland

  2. Faster heart rate

  3. Involuntary trembling or shaking of hands

In addition to this test results which indicate Silent Thyroiditis are:

  1. A reduced radioactive iodine uptake

  2. Increased levels of T3 and T4 thyroid hormones in the blood

  3. Presence of white blood cells in a thyroid biopsy

An early diagnosis can help make the treatment of this disorder easier. The treatment of this disease is dependent on the symptoms showcased. Beta blockers are commonly prescribed to relieve the excessive sweating and rapid heartbeat.

In most cases, the acute phase of this disorder will end in three months and the condition will resolve itself within a year. Over time, some people may develop hypothyroidism as a result of this condition. Hence, you should get yourself regularly checked up even after the symptoms have disappeared. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..
