I am 57 year old male weighing 85 kg, height 5 feet 5 inches and suffering from hypothyroidism since 15-20 years. I am taking thyronorm 150 mg.

Hi, in thyroid apart from the medication it is important to follow a personalized diet plan and do activities/exercise as per the body frame. Your diet counselling would involve taking into account your thyroid malfunction and avoiding certain goitrogens from the diet. For personalised diet consultation do get in touch with me privately on lybrate.

I am 74 years old and suffering from diabets since 10 years and it type -2. I am using galvas met 2 tablets a day and one tablet of glycipage 500 mg. As galvas met is costly will you kindly suggest any other alternative tablet to keep my blood sugar level in normal sir? you may also suggest homeopathic /ayurvda medicines also. Now after taking above tablets my blood sugar level in fasting is 130. Please advice.

You can use other medicine like guconorm g2. But you will have to check blood sugar regularly for sometime after starting this medicine to make sure it is lowering down sugar. It is comparatively cheap medicine than galvas met.

Herpies is a viral condition, it will take it's course of time. Take medicine as suggested by doctor. See a good Ayurveda doctor. Raktamokshan (blood letting) by leaches is a very effective treatment in Ayurveda for herpies. It will give immidiate relief from severe burning.

Hi, in hypothyroidism heart rate is slow. Get hypothyroidism properly treated, so that tsh is maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. About passing more urine or feeling that bladder has not emptied fully, may be non specific. I t is better if you get blood sugar test done and if it does not show presence of diabetes, you may look for possible other causes. Thanks.

Hi, you better repeat your test once again after couple of weeks. You have border line levels for hyper thyroid, which has to be correlated clinically also. Consult after second test.

Hello your statement is not very clear. But I think you want to know what happens in hypothyroidism. This condition is now a days seen more often in ladies. Patient feels weak and tired, weight may increase plus there may be swelling of legs and feet. It occurs because of lack of thyroid hormones like t3 and thyroxine. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets regularly.

Eating fruit and veg can boost your FERTILITY

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Eating fruit and veg can boost your FERTILITY

The study found couples struggling to conceive eat less fruit and vegetables than people who have just become parents.
Men who want to become fathers should eat their greens
Fruit and vegetables are good for male fertility because they contain compounds that could protect sperm from damage.
The minerals zinc, found in beans and pulses, and selenium, found in eggs, help keep testosterone levels high.
The antioxidants found in fruits help protect sperm from cellular damage and keep them strong and speedy - just what they need to race through the fallopian tubes and fertilize the egg.

Zinc deficiency can actually reduce testosterone levels; for men with low testosterone - zinc was shown to raise testosterone and increase fertility. Zinc deficiencies are some of the most common deficiencies found in both men and women. Sources of zinc are sesame seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, and green peas. Find vitamin a - which is important in preventing sluggish sperm - infertility foods such as leafy greens, carrots, red peppers, and apricots, to name a few. Get vitamin c - which is critical to sperms motility and viability - in papaya, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, oranges, kiwifruit, tomatoes, grapefruit, and broccoli, among other foods. And get vitamin e - which helps keep sperm vital - from vegetable oils. Fruits and veggies such as leafy greens, beans, and most fruits contain folic acid - a b vitamin with antioxidant properties that's crucial for keeping sperm free of chromosomal abnormalities. Pomegranate juice: another powerful player in antioxidant. Foods rich in l-carnitine are nuts, seeds, and many vegetables, including artichokes, asparagus, beet greens, broccoli, brussels sprouts, collard greens, garlic, mustard greens, okra, and parsley. This amino acid is a necessary nutrient for sperm cells to function normally.

Just be sure she is not suffering from hepatitis B or C. If not then just take inj T intramuscular If yes which is very rare. You need to take treatment And BTW diabetes is not communicable it does not spread by needle injury but if you remain sedentary n don't exercise regularly there are chances you may get diabetes due to family history.

Blood sugars keep fluctuating from time to time due to many factors however with the help of your doctor you will have to keep it within possibly normal range as fixed by your doctor - normally 100-126 fasting and 126- 140 2 hours after principal morning meal. And perodic hba1c - 6.5 to control fluctuations buying a glucometer for self monitoring is ideal. It is better that you keep a diary and record sugar levlel 2 - 5 times, 1. Fasting, 2. Post breakfast 3. Before dinner one one day 2 hours after lunch and after dinner on some other day as advised by your doctor depending on control hba1c once in 3-6 months as advised take these reports to your doctor regularly for some adjustments or modifications of your daily routine, food intake timings and medications etc. Make it a habit you will gain more and more knowledge of diabetes and control this will avoid possible long term complications or at least postpone them so you remain healthy and fit.

I have diabetes shall I go for insulin or medicine enough at age 36 ?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I have diabetes shall I go for insulin or medicine enough at age 36 ?
It depends on sugar levels and type of diabetes. Exogenous insulin at this age is only required if you are detected lada. Active infection, surgery, very high blood sugars with ketone in urine. Etc. In other normal cases of type 2 diabetes oral medication is sufficient to control sugars.
