You can take aloe vera juice minimum after 1 hour of taking thyroid medicines. Alovera juice contains maximum rare micronutrients those we are not taking in our regular basis. So it will help to provide you those micronutrients which are required for various purposes for healthy body metabolism. Not only alovera all the natural herbal nutritional cum medicinal stuffs like amla, turmeric, jamun, etc etc all have beneficial for our body. Regarding your thyroid problem how much they will help that can not be told, but yes that will be helpful as whole for your body. So you can take it with your normal medications. Thank you.

My brother-in-law (age-32) couple of days ago diagnosed with diabetes (RBS above 500 and Hba1C 10) .Now along with medications, he stopped taking white rice and refined flour and started including millets in all the three meals.

I am a 55 year old daibetic female, I want to lose weight in a month, present weight is 69 kg. Please advice.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take ? of your total as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity.

There are no specific food substances for curing the thyroid problem. Yet it is important to be physically active (exercise and yoga) and eat only healthy food so that you remain healthy and fit. In the long run, this healthy lifestyle will surely help you to overcome the thyroid problem. So please continue the medicine as usual. The dosage of the medicine can be reduced slowly as you improve your health by exercise and good diet. If needed you can also add Homeopathy which is safe and can be given with other regular medicines. You can contact me later for further details about Homeopathic treatment if the problem does not improve with diet and exercise.

PCOS and Infertility - What is the relation?

PCOS and Infertility - What is the relation?

Almost all women with the ability to reproduce develop ovarian cysts at some point or the other but not all of them suffer from PCOS or have infertility issues. PCOS affects only around 10% of women of reproductive age. It is important to note the PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome does not cause cysts but leads to the development of follicles. This causes a hormonal imbalance. The results of this hormonal imbalance can be noted in many ways including infertility.

  • Infertility can be described as the inability to conceive and reach full term despite having unprotected intercourse at the right time of a woman’s menstrual cycle for over a year. One of the main ways in which PCOS interferes with fertility is by disturbing the natural ovulation cycle. Normally, a woman ovulates once a month. At this time an egg is released by either one of the ovaries. As a result of PCOS, these eggs are not released. This is because the ovaries of a woman suffering from PCOS are much larger than normal and have a number of small antral follicles that do not allow the egg to mature. Without an egg, sperm cells have nothing to fertilize and hence a woman cannot conceive. PCOS also causes irregular menstrual cycles. This makes it difficult to determine the period of ovulation.
  • PCOS can be managed with medication but there is no cure for this condition. Thankfully, infertility caused by PCOS can be treated and these women can have healthy pregnancies. For this, you will need to consult a fertility specialist. There are two forms of medication to treat infertility caused by PCOS. Birth control pills, with a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestin, can help regulate the menstrual cycle. In some cases, a doctor may prescribe progestin-only pills. These pills need to be taken daily for two weeks for up to 2 months. Medication may also be prescribed to stimulate ovulation. This medication may be the form of pills or injections.
  • Lifestyle changes can also help improve your fertility. For example, being overweight or obese can aggravate hormonal imbalances. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, you should be able to reduce your weight. This, in turn, can make menstrual cycles more regular. In addition, you should quit smoking, meditate and reduce your exposure to stress and pollution. This makes your body healthier and increases your chances of conceiving a baby.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Mr Rupesh, If your blood sugars are well controlled then there is a possibility of being able to build the muscles. Your diet should include some more proteins along with other things. So llok for some specific protein supplements with less of or nil carbs.

You can eat everything except meat, milk and paneer. Once the uric acid level comes down after medication, you can start eating these things in moderation. You can take fruits, vegetables, fish.

Diabetes and high blood pressure suggest you need a good cardiologist and diabetologist advise. But you want to control everything by food. A very risky and a life threatening decision. At 63 yrs of age it's not advisable. But if you must and you really want to take risk, then find a holistic medicine expert who offers natural and herbal remedies. I practice exactly the same and my motto is to cure without chemicals. But I am in Pune. Think of online consultation.

I have a history of uric acid. Which is however, in control without taking any regular medication. I'm into serious weight training and an amateur bodybuilder.

lybrate-user it depends whether you want to be a professional body builder or it is your own interest. I am asking this because for staying fit and have good muscles is one thing and constantly working on them is different. Serious body building has some challenges and it is a full time thing under constant supervision of three people Gym trainer, Doctor and Dietician. Gym people advise people certain supplements to develop the muscles which is a manipulated combination of proteins by science- this resulted in your high uric acid levels. I do not know how high as you have not mentioned the value. Staying fit and staying muscular are two different things its like you want to be fit like actor Akshay Kumar or muscular like actor Dwayne Johnson. Before going any further keep this thing in mind that the time you are devoting to develop muscles above average will be same to reduce your muscle mass by exercise later when you will not be able to give this much time to gym. I would suggest you see a doctor for your physical examination and required tests and a dietician for appropriate diet. Avoid mutton, whole cereals like sabut urad, sabut masoor etc.

Dear most important is to control your blood sugar levels. Insulin is medicine and not recreational drug that you get addicted to it.

Lybrate-user, diabetes is a lifestyle disorder where balancing your diet along with good physical activity is a must. Eat at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs and practise 15-20 mins of yoga to reduce stress.

Hello , pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.
