Is there any treatment for complete cure of hypothyroidism. With increase in anti bodies.
No. There is no permanent cure in allopathy but it can be easily controlled with thyroid medications. You need to take them life long. There are no side effects if taken in right dose.

Skin infection is quite common in diabetic patients. Control hyperglycemia. Prevent lower limb from any kind of injury. If cellulitis has occurred again start antibiotics after consulting.

I have diagnosed thyroid few days ago. How to prevent from this? What are the symptoms and effect of this?

DRCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
Thyroid gland affection manifest in our body mostly in three form- hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and goiter. Mostly women in middle age group are affected by hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are- weight gain and edema, mood disturbances and irritability, lethargy and loss of interest in work, rough hairs and hair fall, heavy menses and cold intolerance. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism- hot body and heat intolerance, loss of weight, increased appetite, excessive sweating and trembling of body. Bulging of eye ball may also present that is called exopthalmous goiter. In simple goiter there is swelling and hypertrophy of thyroid gland which is manifested in the form of big nodule at the anterior part of neck. This is a type of hormonal imbalance in our body. So there is not any specific mode of prevention of it. Yet by healthy food habit and healthy life style we can avoid many diseases. Genetic involvement is also seen in thyroid affection. Take medicine properly as prescribed to you to remain fit.

The 7 Essential Factors in Forecasting the Length of Homeopathic Treatment of Chronic Diseases

The 7 Essential Factors in Forecasting the Length of Homeopathic Treatment of Chronic Diseases

Homeopathic treatments are usually considered to be safe and effective for the long-run. But the biggest challenge in this kind of treatment is to forecast its length. Homeopathic treatment depends upon a multiple factors. A homeopathic doctor takes every aspect of a patient's lifestyle into account during the treatment. Therefore, the treatment takes a long time. It should be allowed to take place at its own speed. It also depends a lot on the participation of the patient.

Factors that Determine the Length of the Treatment:

The length of the treatment varies from one patient to another. It depends upon the nature of the patient. Here are the essential factors that determine the length of the treatment:

  1. Patient's Vitality and its Level: It is assumed that younger people are more active and vivacious. They are dynamic and respond quickly to the treatment. For people who live a dynamic life, the symptoms appear and disappear rapidly. For example, even if you are an old person but still active as compared to the people of your age, you will respond to the treatment better than others.
  2. Social Background of the Patient: The treatment depends largely on the patient's social background and the nature of life he or she is leading. A patient might be poor but has mental peace and is active than a rich person. It is important to understand the social behavior, activities and mental or psychological issues of the patient also.
  3. Nature of Physical Pathology: There is no correlation between the length of the treatment and the type of disease. It must be clearly understood that the type of disease doesn't influences the length of treatment. While a minor skin disease may take months to disappear or even years, a more dangerous and chronic disease may respond quickly.
  4. When did the first symptoms occur: Suppose a patient developed a mental disorder five years ago due to any incident in the family. Later, when the treatment begins the patient will take five months to recover. Therefore, it is important to mark the exact time when the first symptoms occurred.
  5. Hereditary Links to the Disease: In case the disease has hereditary links, it takes longer time to get rid of it.
  6. Presence of Responsible Factors in the Patient's Life: If the interfering factors that aggravate the disease in the patient are still present in his or her life, the treatment will undoubtedly take longer time.
  7. The level of healing that the patient is looking for: The patient must understand what he or she is looking for in a homeopathic treatment. The initial symptoms or complications might vanish quickly. But, to get rid of the entire disease might take some more time. Some patients abandon the treatment just after the symptoms vanish. They don't understand that the deeper roots of the disease might still be present.

Dear All, My wife age is 22 years recently her check was done and her thyroid level is TSH 10.4. We have started immediately treatment and also delayed our pregnancy plan till TSH level comes to normal level. She is very stress because of these results as she wish to get a baby asap. Kindly suggest how much time it will take to cover or improve her thyroid level to normal level?

Within two to three months it will come normal. Get tsh done every three weeks. Increase or decrease the levothyroxine dose accordingly. But be careful in increasing dose, small increments of 12.5 or 25 must be done.

Hello, 1) I am assuming you had your blood tests done recently. Have you been diagnosed as diabetic patient before or are these tests the first time you got them done? 2) if you have not been diagnosed with diabetes before, then your results show that you are in Pre-diabetes stage. If you are previous diabetic patient then these results are borderline normal. 3) For pre-diabetes the management is brought lifestyle changes. A) you are overweight. You mentioned you are 5.1 feet in height. Your ideal weight should be about 55-56 kgs. B) To lose weight you need to eat less and exercise more. You can do any cardiovascular exercises like jogging, running, fast walking, swimming, cycling etc. So treadmill is good. You have to exercise at least 45 minutes everyday, at least 5 days of the week. Start slow and gradually increase the duration and intensity of exercise. C) follow a good diet- to lose weight. Eat plenty of vegetables, whole grains, pulses, milk, fruits like apple, pears, mosambi, small bowl of watermelon, musk melon etc. Avoid fatty food, deep fried food, junk food like bajjis, burger, pizzas etc, avoid sweets and sugary stuff. D) follow the above for 3 months and then get your blood glucose checked again. Do continue your lifestyle changes even after your blood glucose returns back to normal level. Ihopebthis helps you. I wish you all the best. Thank you.

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

My blood sugar level is 80/150, now I am taking Walaphage GP2 (1 tab/day). Can I reduce the medicine?

My blood sugar level is 80/150, now I am taking Walaphage GP2 (1 tab/day). Can I reduce the medicine?
Mr. lybrate-user, You have mentioned blood glucose levels as FBS 80 mg & PP 150 mg. These are good, showing very good control. But just based on one day's blood glucose levels no decision is possible. Secondly the levels are in control because of adequate medication, hence, if dose is reduced, the levels will most certainly go up. Also get HbA1c% checked. That should be maintained <6.8 %, to say there is good control. I do not recommend any change of dosage. Thanks.

M these things should help in controlling blood sugar. R richard, the best solution is to achieve excellent sugar control like fasting to be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Plus dietary control and regular exercise.
