Dear , yes, your blood sugar levels are ok at present and it is because of your exercise and diet. However this may also be what we call as a" honeymoon" period and your diabetes may bounce back. Do keep a regular check on your sugar levels. For the time being you may discontinue the tabs.

LACK OF SLEEP AND TYPE 2 DIABETES.Those who sleep less are at greater risk of developing diabetes.Lack of sleep has been found to elevate free fatty acids in the blood accompanied by prediabetic conditions in healthy adult. There is some connection between lack of sleep,weight gain and diabeties.Lack of sleep,a highly prevelant condition in moderen society ,will reduce fat metabolism,thus increasing free fatty acid in blood and decreasing the ability of insulin to regulate sugar levels.Minimum of 6 hours good sleep is required to prevent this .

I am 61 without any family histroy of diabates. During recent blood test, my fasting sugar is 104 and pps is 184. Should I start taking medicine or this can be controlled by diet. Please advise

General Physician, Nellore
At this stage, you can do dieting and exercise regularly for 2 months and repeat then. If still elevated, then need medications along with diet & exercise. Even if controlled then, you should continue diet & exercise and undergo frequent sugar tests every 3 months to see if it is rising or remaining under control.

Hi doctor
I am Suffering from unexplained infertility since 5 years. And put on weight also. Please help me out
Thank...
If you have put on weight that means you r most probably suffering from pcod, which can be diagnosed with ultrasound and fsh, lh test. Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal bmi of 18-25. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant. You can take metformin to reduce weight. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil.

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Your mother troubled with disappointment and therefore all these trouble. Motivate her. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin and unexplained weight gain. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

My mother (57+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroid (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis of knee joints (stage-2). Around 7-8 months back, she was diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.6), which got corrected (Hb 12.4) after 2-3 months usage of 'Orofer XT' Around a week back, all of a sudden, she seems to feel lot of gas & indigestion & had to pass motion 15-16 times, out of which last 3-4 times are loose, while rest are normal. She also had stomach pain (around naval chord), which gets relieved after passing motion. This motion got stopped after taking couple of 'Lopamide' tablets in the evening. She was also seen by a medicine doctor on the same day, who had prescribed the following medicines - 1) Citran CT - twice daily for 5-days 2) Vigilac - twice daily for 10-days 3) PAN-D - empty stomach for 5-days. The antibiotic was stopped couple of days back, but she seems to have stomach pain & loose motion (3-times) yesterday evening. Also, she feels gas is not reduced much & she does not have appetite along with weakness. When we talked to the doctor over phone, he advised to continue PAN-D for 2 more weeks & nothing else. Are we on the right track of treatment ?

Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

Thyroid disease:

In most cases where the thyroid is dysfunctional, symptoms arise relating to the imbalance of the thyroid hormones. Conventional medicine generally treats people with synthroid, or its generic equivalent, which is a preparation of t4, one of the two primary thyroid hormones. Some people do not respond well to synthroid and need additional supplementation with t3, the cellular active thyroid hormone. In spite of adjustments made by doctors to some patient’s hormone supplementation, unwanted symptoms may still be present affecting the patient’s lifestyle and overall health. Homeopathic remedies are useful on their own and in conjunction with conventional medicines in relieving these symptoms. Always consult your physician and an experienced homeopath for treatment for any thyroid disorders, including autoimmune thyroid diseases such as graves and hashimoto’s disease.


 

Iodum:

The homeopathic remedy iodum is indicated for patients experiencing hyperthyroidism, according to Dr. William boericke, in the materia medica and repertory. The person may feel very hot, agitated, and shaky with trembling hands and heart palpitations. There may be an increased appetite, with a desire to eat all day long, resulting in obesity; however, the individual may also have an increased metabolism and not be able to gain weight. Given in controlled doses and the correct potency, iodum may help regulate the thyroid and the pituitary gland, the source of thyroid stimulating hormone.


 

Fucus vesicelosus:

Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, helps thyroid conditions where there is an under active thyroid with slow metabolism, according to the boericke. The remedy has the power to stimulate the thyroid and pituitary gland, helping to adjust the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone, and boost metabolic processes. When used correctly, this powerful remedy offers relief from many thyroid conditions and successfully reduces a myriad of symptoms, such as promoting weight loss, relieving sluggishness and fatigue, alleviating headaches, muscle pain and joint discomfort, and overcome many other unwanted symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.


 

Additionally, this remedy also has the ability to suppress an overactive thyroid when given in higher potencies and larger doses. Fucus vesicelosus should never be self-administered. It should only be used under the supervision of an experienced homeopath that can monitor your case closely. Never adjust your dose or change the potency of the remedy without first consulting your practitioner. Dietary kelp is contraindicated while taking homeopathic fucus vesicelosus.


 

Kali carbonicum

Kali carbonicum is indicated for individuals who suffer from a slow metabolism, often seen in hypothyroidism. The remedy may relieve symptoms of coldness and chilliness, pain in the back, chronic constipation, indigestion, flatulence, belching and a sour taste in the mouth. The person needing this remedy may be aggravated in general by drinking icy-cold drinks, which can produce nausea and vomiting. Patients experiencing chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, obesity, fatigue and who are hypothyroid are excellent candidates for this remedy.


 

Warning

Never treat yourself for thyroid problems. Any form of thyroid disease is complex and treatment needs to be supervised by an experienced health practitioner.


 

So consult the doctor privately.

Are the chances of B.P.is more in diabetic patients. What should be the normal range of B.P. In 60 age old.

Are the chances of B.P.is more in diabetic patients. What should be the normal range of B.P. In 60 age old.
Mr. Lybrate-user, that bp and diabetes are found together in cases of weight gain and abdominal fat gain is known but it is not that they are not found individually independent of each other. Having them together along with weight gain / abdominal fat gain and having disturbed lipids would qualify a person to be labelled as metabolic syndrome. Yes, there are other complications and not only the risk of heart problems and stroke and kidney diseases go up having these two together, the problems get compounded and seriously hamper the quality of life for the sufferer. The dietary and lifestyle measures to control these and to avoid attendant complications are more or less overlapping: go for plant based whole foods + moderate level of daily activity + avoid processed foods, packaged foods, animal foods, restaurant foods. Try meditation and yoga and relaxation exercises. They do bring good benefits. Best wishes,

My Hb1Ac is 6% and Average Blood Glucose (ABG ) is 125 mg/dl. Is it diabetic or impaired glucose tolerance.
Mr. K r lybrate-user, it is impaired glucose tolerance. Also considered as pre-diabetes state. It requires you to adapt a modified lifestyle, meaning - maintain normal weight, (ideal body weight 65 kgs), take healthy diet, exercise regularly and refrain from alcohol and smoking. Then you will be able to prevent getting diabetes or may be able to postpone it. Thanks.
