For diabetes you need to avoid sugar, jaggery and honey. In fruits you need to restrict banana, chickoo, mango, sitaphal, watermelon, sugarcane, muskmelon, grapes etc. Yo0u need to avoid deep fried foods like farsan and namkeen etc. In vegetables you need to restrict potato, sweet potato, yam, beetrrot and carrot etc. Try to consume more of salad, Vegetables, whole grains. Eat small and frequent meals. Do not consumeany of your meal heavy. Start taking fenugreek seeds whole or powder in the morning as it will help you keeping your sugar normal. Your fasting sugar should fall below 140. And after eating sugar should be below 180. About medicines you need to consult you physician.

Remedy Required FOR THE UNFORTUNATE THING THAT HAPPENED (PLEASE SEE BELOW) Without any symptom my wife (62 years) went for T3, T4, THS test as a routine check up 1) Although TSH Level is Elevated is 7.87 uIU/ml (Normal Range-0.27-4.90), 2) T3 Level is Normal at 1.40 ng/ml (Normal Range-0.80 -2.0) 3) and T4 Level is Normal at 11.35.ug/dL (Normal Range-5.1-14.1). endocrinologist was consulted. The doctor opined it as Subclinical Hypothyroidism (beginning) and recommended Thyroxine Supplement.(Thyronorm 25 mcg) and advised to see him after 3 months of taking medicine and repeat tests. As a precautionary measure AFTER 28 DAYS ONLY I DID a REPEAT TEST FOR TSH ONLY in the same laboratory AND SURPRISINGLY TSH WAS FOUND TO BE ONLY 0.07 (Normal Range-0.34-5.60) the Normal Range Varied in the Two Cases and the Laboratory explained A) First TSH Test Was done as per cubic E411 Method and B) Second TSH Test was done as per Access 2 Method I again went to the doctor concerned and he advised to STOP THYRONORM I am extremely worried due to the fact that normally ONY AFTER TAKING MEDICINE FOR 28 DAYS ONLY HOW THE TSH FIGURE CAME DOWN SO ABNORMALLY AND MEDICINE WAS STOPPED ,ALTHOUGH PEOPLE SAY THAT ONCE STARTED THYROID MEDICATION WILL CONTINUE WHAT PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES CAN BE TAKEN NOW TO AVOID PROBLEM. SHE HAD NO PROBLEM /SYMPTOM WHEN THE MEDICINE WAS STARTED AND NOW ALSO SHE HAS NO PROBLEM When Routine Tests were done Lipid Profile checked, ALL OK, Complete Blood Count ALL OK. ECG ,Echo Cardiogram ALL OK. Urine Routine Test ALL OK Only thing is She is prediabetes and is suffering from Chronic Urticaria (Skin Itchiness. Doctors including Skin Specialists consulted and Everybody Opined Chronic Urticaria May Not be Curable, It may Go On Its Own. She takes levocetirizine (5 mg) tablet as and when needed, roughly one tablet in 5 days to stop itching.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually in subclinical hypothyroidism no treatment is advocated, unlee there are troubling or disturbing symptoms related to hypothyroidism. So in first place there should have been no thyroxine given. Since she was given 25 mcg, the TSH has gone down below normal. So the doctor has asked you to stop it. My subscription is stop treating now, then check TSH after 8 weeks. Then inform, if the level goes above 10 mU/L, then only treatment is needed. Otherwise nothing is needed. If you have any doubts please come in a private conversation. Thanks.

Sir please give me accurate diet chart for diabetic person because my mom is suffering with diabetes please thank you.
Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. To give an "accurate diet chart" I need to know following things: her present fasting, Pp glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, extent of daily exercise, present dietary patter, drugs with dosage. After going through all those details only I will be able to provide a specific diet for her. Because it has to be patient specific plan. So my suggestion is please come in a private conversation with all the above details. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.

Mr. Dhiraj, Thanks for the query. HbA1c% 6.5 and above means confirmed diabetes. This needs treatment. There is no way to bring it under control by diet and exercise only. Hence, HbA1c% 10, is a totally uncontrolled diabetes. You have to consult a diabetologist and start the treatment with appropriate drugs and also take restricted diet that gives exact calories base on your ideal weight (75 kgs) and do regular exercise for over 1 hour. If you are interested in online consultation foe treating diabetes, I can guide if you give following details - FBG< PPBG & HbA1c%, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Please remember immediate treatment is a must. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From your query it is clear that there is considerable variation in her blood glucose levels. The reasons for this could be - no diet control, no or less exercise and inadequate medication. So I need to know all the details like her FBG, PP bloocose level, HbA1c%, present medication, extent of daily exercise and dietary pattern. Based on all those details I will be abe to give proper guidance. It is better if yoou come in a private conversation with all the above mentioned details then I will be able to even prescribe if there is a need. In this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines only, no drug prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

So far in the world there is cure discovered for diabetes. However, you may come across claims made by either ayurvedic or homeopathic practitioners, that in their practice diabetes can be cured. Unfortunately these are only unsubstantiated claims. If anyone claims he can cure or has a cure, he would be eligible for nobel prize. Anyway, best thing is taking appropriate modern medicine, taking a balanced restricted diet and exercising regularly for at least 1 hour a day and maintaining normal weight, these are the measures which help in controlling diabetes. Thanks.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Allopathy can give quick results but is not very safe for long term uses if steroids are used. Homeopathic is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i. E old patches shows some recovery but new white patches continue to come even when we are using homeopathy. If one think about using ayurveda there is no good vaidya who is expertise in vitiligo. At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. With a expertise in treating thousands of patients in past years. Kayakalp global is leading skin clinic in india to treat vitiligo. For detail replies regarding 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can contact clinic for details via lybtate. You can send pictures of vitiligo effected parts. We will review your case and will guide you best possible treatment and time frame required.

Mr. Lybrate-user, feeling sleepy need not be related to diabetes. But some times undetected diabetes can lead to a considerable unexplained tiredness and fatigue. So it is better if you get a blod test done like fasting and pp sugar levels. That will confirm whether there is any problem existing. Thanks for the question.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hypothyroidism Calcarea carb , Sepia ,Lycopodium, Graphites and Nux Vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

I am 47 years old male having uric acid 6.9 level s kartine 1.12 suggest medicine.
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.
