Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months. Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum. Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps

pl. take treatment of it continue... Take diet for hypothyroidism:- 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, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

What is an ideal diet for ulcerative colitis? I heard cabbage juice is a good option to cure uc. But I have doubt whether any side effects for this cabbage juice especially thyroid function?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
People with uc should just try to eat a well-balanced diet whenever possible. This should include a variety of foods: lean meat, fish, and poultry low-fat dairy products bread, cereal, and whole grains fruits and vegetables healthy fats such as vegetable oils keep a food diary to help you figure out which foods cause problems for you and whether or not you're getting enough nutrients. If you're losing weight because of your ulcerative colitis, try eating five or six small meals and snacks during the day instead of two or three large meals. When you have chronic diarrhea, drink plenty of water or other fluids to stay hydrated. A dietitian can come up with a diet that meets your calorie and nutrient needs. Before you take any dietary supplements, talk to your doctor or ask me privately.

alcohol in any quantity is bad for health in a normal person and more so in a person with diabetes. Plus taking regular treatment for diabetes is a must. Please understand diabetes is just not increase in sugar, it affects every single organ in the body like eyes (retina- leading to blindness), affects blood vessels supplying lower limbs and heart, leading to ulcers on the non healing on foot, going up to amputation, coronary artery disease causing silent heart attacks, kidney damage and neuropathy. So controlling blood sugar effectively is absolutely essential as well as avoiding alcohol consumption. Alcohol affects liver, patient fail to recognise hypoglycemia, affects stomach causing gastritis. Talk to him about these things, may get convinced. Thanks for the question.

Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

Infertility refers to the inability to conceive after having sex without protection. The biological inability of a man or a woman to contribute to conception and carry a full-term pregnancy may also be referred to as infertility. Among the various treatments for infertility, homeopathy accounts for being an effective one in both men and women.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in women

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of acid vaginal charges: Borax and Natrum Phos are considered to be the best homeopathic medicines for infertility in women because of acid vaginal charges. These medicines are used when the vaginal discharges are destructive, acrid and kills sperms. Borax is used when the discharge is like egg white, copious and warm and it helps in easy conception. Natrum Phos is used when the discharge is acrid, creamy or honey colored.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of prolonged and profuse periods: Calcarea Carb and Aletris Farionosa are used in case of too much prolonged, too profuse menstrual periods and periods which occur before time. Early mensus are experienced by patients. Anemia, leucorrhea, fatigues, tiredness and weakness may be experienced with menorragia.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men:

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with erectile dysfunction: There are several effective homeopathic medicines for this purpose. Agnus Castus is used when a man’s sexual desire and physical ability is low and the genitals stay relaxed, cold and flaccid. Caladium is best when infertility or impotency occurs due to mental depression. In this case, the genitals stay relaxed and weak erection is observed. Selenium is another efficient homeopathic medicine for erectile dysfunction in cases of slow and weak erections. Involuntary semen discharge may also be experienced.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with low sperm count: X-ray is the most effective homeopathic medicine for treating low sperm count in men. Sperm count gets increased and both the quantity and quality of sperm are enhanced.
  3. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with orchitis: Conium is an ideal homeopathic medicine for treating infertility in men with orchitis. The testicles are swollen, enlarged and become hard. Conium also helps when a patient has a history of suppressed sexual desire.

Homeopathy is the most natural treatment for fertility in men and women, with no side effects on the body. Homeopathic medicine works with following rule of the nature's law of cure and these medicines work naturally without producing any harm to the body. You should consult a homeopathic practitioner before taking any homeopathic remedy for infertility.

Hello, diabetes is associated with lower immunity and many other complications. As she's very much underweight it's better to do a sonography of abdomen and pelvis, x-ray of chest and certain blood tests to rule out tb, pneumonia etc. Also sugar must be brought within normal range. Give proteins and vitamins as per doctor's advice.

You can consider your fasting sugar level to be normal. Do your Post Meal check after One and half hour of taking food and if it is below 160 mg per 100 ml of blood, then that would also be within normal range. You can also get your HbA1C and it should come not more than 5.5.

You need to get throughly evaluated if the problem is recurrent and probably need endoscopy to rule out any potential problem in your intestine, if the diarrhea is recurrent and not subsiding. Any blood in the diarrhea? please send me your detailed reports.

Stress and infertility

Stress and infertility

It is not clear how exactly stress impacts fertility. It is not known whether high levels of stress can prevent pregnancy or affect a woman's chance of conceiving. We do know that reducing stress provides a better quality of life during times of intense personal challenge. 

What is stress? 

Stress is often defined as an event that a person sees/ feels is threatening. In order to protect itself, the body responds with a fight or flight response. How can stress impact a fertility patient? sometimes, infertility patients respond to the stress of being unable to conceive by aggressively pursuing treatment and procedures. Other patients withdraw and isolate from family, friends, and community. Neither of these extremes is ideal for patients who seek to treat their infertility and build a family. 

How can I reduce my stress? 

Having less stress in your life while pursuing fertility treatment may not, in and of itself, result in a pregnancy. However, developing better coping strategies to manage stress related to an infertility diagnosis and treatment can help you feel more in control and improve your overall well-being. 

It has been shown that stress does interfere with making rational and well-thought-out decisions. Reducing stress can allow patients to research, explore, and consider all the options available with a clearer mindset. By reducing stress, the pros and cons of one treatment course over another can be more effectively weighed and considered. 

Reduced stress is good for your health. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress free, finding ways to minimize stress while pursuing treatment can help. It is helpful for patients to look for ways to reduce the burden of infertility treatments and medical protocols. 

There are many stress-reducing techniques; some of the more popular methods recommended to fertility patients are: 

acupuncture 

aerobic exercise (may be reduced during treatment) 

collaboration with experts in stress reduction 

guided imagery 

journaling 

listening to music 

massage therapy

meditation 

mind-body groups 

mindfulness 

progressive muscle relaxation 

psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy 

self-help books

support/educational groups 

visualization 

walking/hiking 

yoga

 

How can I help my friend/loved one? 

Friends and loved ones are facing a challenge. Telling patients to be less stressed can make them feel more responsible for causing their own infertility and feel blamed. Telling someone to relax can cause greater stress. However, asking how couples/friends are doing and suggesting concrete and pragmatic ways to reduce stress will enhance quality of life and give the patient back some sense of control. For many struggling with infertility, just having friends/loved ones available for listening is greatly appreciated. 

The goal of stress reduction is to minimize, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patient's needs the best.
