I am gating bitter test in mouth if I am eating sugar I feel bitterness kindly advice proper medicine to gat core.
Hello, Thanks for the query. Normally there is no change in taste in the mouth when one eats sugar. Bitterness may occur following certain nuts being eaten. If nothing is taken then it is difficult to say why such a thing occurs. Thanks.

What is thyroid and how much does it affects a human (ladies aged 50 and above) what are the treatments available?

Thyroid is an endocrine gland situated on the adam's apple on the throat. This secretes hormones like t3 and t4 (thyroxine) which are essential for all the metabolic activities of the body. Some times it does no produce the hormone leading to hypothyroidism, when the person feels weak, weight increases, cold can not be tolerated, lethargy occurs and there may be many other complaints. The condition is moe common in females compared to males. It can occur at any age. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage daily for life time.

Lybrate-user, meditation and exercise both are really good to maintain a good health. But it is equally important to control hypothyroidism effectively. For that you should maintain tsh levels between 3 to 4 mili units/l. Otherwise all the symptoms will not be in check. Exercising for 1 hour every day will help in maintaining a near normal weight, otherwise hypothyroidism will lead to increased weight. The best exercise to begin is brisk walking for 1 hour or more every day. A very simple and easy to do. Otherwise, if you are willing to do a bit more then better to join a gym and do various aerobic activities and strength building exercises under the guidance of a qualified professional instructor. This will help you get a real hang exercise and you will enjoy. As regards meditation, there are many methods which are advocated. One way is to sit in a comfortable chair taking full support to your thighs, using the full width and depth of the chair, then concentrating your gaze on an object at 45 degrees in front of you, taking 6 deep breaths and then closing your eyes. Then instructing your self that your whole body beginning with scalp is relaxing completely, reaching slowly down to the toes. Once you do this say to your self that" I have relaxed completely, every single cell, every muscle, bone and joint everything has relaxed. I am feeling wonderful. I am enjoying this lovely feeling of relaxation. You may imagine or visualise about a beautiful place that you have visited, bring it right in front of your eyes, feel you are there. Stay in that mood for over 10 to 15 minutes or longer. While being in this situation give some positive instructions/ suggestions to yourself about what you want to do, or objectives, goal, immediate and future ones. Say to your self, that your going to succeed. Just enjoy that lovely feeling of relaxation. Say you are healthy, you will over come the problems that you face including hypothyroidism. Will have great success in life. Then after a stipulated time count 1 to 6 and open your eyes. This is one way of relaxing or meditating. There other ways like spiritual meditation. Try any thing that suits you. All the best. Thanks.

Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals.

Hypothyroidism - Symptoms + Homeopathic Remedies

Hormones are chemicals produced by the body for optimal functioning of the various body systems. The thyroid produces thyroxin which controls body metabolism, and reduced levels affect metabolism. Deficiency of Iodine is the cause behind it as it is required by the body to produce thyroxin. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis which is an autoimmune disorder is another cause.

Some common signs of it are extreme fatigue, intolerance to cold, constipation, puffy face, hoarseness of voice, increased cholesterol level, weight gain, muscle and joint pains and aches, altered menstruation and depression are some of the common symptoms. 

Homeopathy has some very good remedies that are aimed at managing the person as a whole and not just the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

    • Weak, pale yellow, tend to faint easily in cold temperatures
    • Extreme intolerance to cold, even in a warm room
    • Irritable, indifferent
    • Significant hair loss
    • Excessive menstruation, occurs earlier than schedule, along with a bearing down feeling that the pelvic organs will pop out through the vagina, and so she always prefers to sit cross-legged
    • Constipation i.e. stool is passed out as small balls that is painful to pass
    • Craving for pickles and acidic food stuffs
  3. Lycopodium Clavatum: Symptoms of patients in whom Lycopodium will be used are as follows:
    • Emotionally irritable and physically weak
    • Yellow face with blue circles around eyes
    • Excessive hair fall
    • Craving for hot foods and sweets
    • Gastric troubles with excessive flatulence
    • Acidity that worsens after eating starchy foods, especially in the evenings
    • Constipation with hard, painful, incomplete stooling
  4. Graphites: Presenting symptoms where Graphites is mainly used include:
    • Obesity
    • Intolerance to cold
    • Depressed emotionally, timid, indecisive, weeps listening to music
    • Bloated, gassy abdomen
    • Chronic constipation with hard, painful stooling process
  5. Nux Vomica: The patient in whom Nux Vomica can produce wonderful results presents with the following symptoms:
    • Cold to the touch
    • Extremely temperamental, gets offended easily, extremely sensitive
    • Chronic constipation with scanty stools and a chronic urge to pass stools
    • Gassy, bloated feeling in the stomach
    • Desire for alcohol, caffeine, and other stimulations; fatty and spicy foods

These are commonly used remedies; however, a detailed discussion with a homeopath is essential to zero in on the remedy that will work best for you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have been told that diabetes is present, then treatment has to be taken daily and for lifetime. If you stop taking the drugs then sugar level is bound to go up. Along with taking appropriate drugs you will have to take a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Plus do daily 1 hour of exercise, brisk walking is good enough.
