Healing in diabetes is slower than normal. Control diabetes well and keep the area clean. Allow a week or 10 days for full recovery. It should heal in that time.

Musli is a propreitary ayurvedic preparation supposedly treating erectile dysfuntion. Being an allopathic doctor, my knowledge of ayurveda is limited, but one thing is certain that if the product is purely herbal without high heavy metal content, there would not be any side effects.

Hi I am 21 year old and I am suffering from thyroid. In this case what can I do? Because my wait also lost.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too without side effects. Although you may find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful and moreover you will be relieved of life long medicines and will be fully treated in 2-3 years depending upon your thyroid levels and amount of effort that you are putting in, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------so choice is yours whether to go with life long homoeopathic medicines and its side effects or homoeopathic medicines for 2-3 years without any side effects------------but we will discuss the above debate afterwards but first of all show me your blood reports depicting hyperthyroidism--------------

Are you on treatment for diabetes? overweight can aggravate diabetes. First take action to cut your weight. You may consider taking tab viagra 50 mg 1 h before coming together. But diabetes can cause this problem.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please tell me is she on treatment with thyronorm tablet even now? please understand in hypothyroidism only treatment is to take thyroxine (thyronorm) for whole life. There is no other option. Trying other medicines is a waste of time and money. The dose of thyronorm should be such that tsh levels are brought between 3 to 4 milli units, then all the symptoms will be in control. She also should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits, use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Alos she should follow the dosage instructions of taking the tablet early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hours. She also should exercise daily to avoid weight increase. Efforts reduce weight and other symptoms will be successful only if tsh levels are maintained as mentioned above. Another important thing as she is only 25 years, later after marriage if she desires to have a baby then tsh levels have to be maintained around 0.1 to 2.0 milli units prior to pregnancy and in the same range during pregnancy. So her only option to get rid of symptoms of hypothyroidism is to take correct dose of thyronorm. Thanks for the question.

Ramandeepji, The things described by you suggest that the patient is having chronic renal failure, which is one of the severe complications pf long standing diabetes. This comes about when blood sugar is not well controlled for many years. Now the options are limited. He has to be probably shifted on to Insulin injections for stricter blood glucose control (Fasting closer to 100 mg and PP <180 mg and HbA1c% <7). Plus there has to be strict monitoring of salt intake (not more than 2 g a day), taking food providing less protein. Dialysis has to be continued. His BP also should be very closely monitored. There is no cure for any of these conditions, proper medication and appropriate diet and drug therapy is the only option.
