Thyroid gland basically controls body's energy expenditure via t3 & t4, like fuel in car. If it is more body activities are fast like you get palpitations, weight loss etc if it is less then it slows all activities and you feel tired weight gain etc. So maintaining them in normal levels is very important.

Aged 54. Diabetes patient. Three teeth fell down up and down side. I cant take hot or cold drinks.Often i affected gum swelling either right or left side. Using herbal tooth paste and soft brush only. Recently one doctor given prescription as: Tab ZERODOL sp ; T. METROGYL 400gm ; cap TRESMOX LB 500 mg & T. CYRA-D all for three days. But on that day i can have no problems. But again its giving problems. I only take chicken monthly once. Please give permanent solutions. I belongs to lower middle class family.

Diabetics are more prone to gum diseases if oral hygiene is not properly taken care of. The swelling you are talking about is the manifestation of the gum disease. So its better that you visit a dentist for cleaning of your teeth & then the dentist can assess the exact condition of your teeth & can provide the appropriate treatment. But make it a point to brush your teeth & use a mouthwash twice daily & get your teeth cleaned once in 6 months.

How many cycle of IVF you had done. Since IVF have a success rate of 40 to 50 % only depending on the infertility type, so you may not be able to conceive in one chance. N this case, the diabetes isn’t preventing conception, but is preventing an ongoing pregnancy. High glucose levels are reported to increase a woman’s chances of miscarriage by 30-60% An increased risk of birth defects due to damage caused to embryonic cells form the high levels of glucose in the blood SO you should think of donor IVF cycle also.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I think earlier question is also your only about low lipids. In that you had not mentioned about hypothyroidism. This is the main reason for weight gain and probably affecting lipids along with statin. At tsh 11.6 you have hypothyroidism, which needs to be treated right away. With regards.

You need to continue using antifungal cream for a month even after it has been cured as the fungus resides in the skin layers & has to be eradicated completely. Then I think, there would be no relapse.

Hello lybrate user. With age there is decrease in erection and this is the normal course of any body function. But in your case you have regular alcohol drinking and smoking habit which are responsible for decreasing erection. So the first thing for you to have better erection is quitting both. It may be difficult to quit substance without medications as it may cause withdrawal symptoms, so you may need an initial help of medications. Along with this accepting a healthy lifestyle with 30 mins of daily exercise and healthy food choices with regular sleep wake pattern may help you to further decrease your problems. Get in touch for further help.
