Is any cure of diabetes? and how to gain hair if the person is suffering from diabetes?

Is any cure of diabetes? and how to gain hair if the person is suffering from diabetes?
Diabetes whether t1 or t2 is not curable disease, treatment has to be continued for life time. Hair loss may not be directly linked to diabetes. Improper nutrition is one of the reasons for it. Achieve strict sugar control and eat healthy food apart from trying measures to gain hair.

Infertility in Women - Know The Top 3 Reasons Behind It!

Infertility in Women - Know The Top 3 Reasons Behind It!

The inability to conceive after indulging in unprotected sex is known as infertility. It can also be referred to the biological incapability of a male to cause the conception or a woman being unable to carry the pregnancy for full-term. Research has shown that female problems contribute to over half of all the infertility cases while a majority of the other causes include sperm disorders.

Treatment of infertility depends on:

  1. Cause of Infertility
  2. Duration of Infertility
  3. Age of both partners
  4. Personal preferences

Causes:
Causes of infertility in women include:
1. Ovulation disorders: This is regarded as the most common cause of infertility in women. The disorders can be caused due to the following

  • Premature ovarian failure
  • PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
  • Poor egg quality
  • Hyperprolactinemia
  • Overactive or Underactive thyroid gland
  • Chronic conditions like cancer or AIDS.

2. Problems in fallopian tubes or uterus: Abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes render the woman incapable of conceiving naturally. This might be due to:

  • Submucosal fibroids
  • Surgery
  • Endometriosis
  • Previous sterilization treatment

3. Medications: There is a possibility that treatment will cure infertility. Examples include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. Treatment of infertility might involve a significant amount of psychological, physical, temporal and financial commitments. In men, treatment is done to treat lack of healthy sperm or general sexual problems. The treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Surgery
  3. Change in lifestyle
  4. Sperm retrieval

Even though it is possible to restore fertility in women using only one or two therapies, a number of treatments might be required before conception is possible. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  2. Stimulation of ovulation with fertility drugs
  3. Surgery to restore fertility

In situations where pregnancy does not happen spontaneously, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) can be used by couples to achieve pregnancy. It is a form of fertility treatment which involves the handling of sperm and egg. The entire ART team consists of psychologists, physicians, embryologists, nurses and lab technicians.

One common ART technique is In vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a process where an egg and sperms are manually combined in a laboratory dish, followed by transfer of embryo to the uterus. Some aspects involved in an IVF cycle are:

  1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  2. Assisted hatching
  3. Donor eggs or sperm
  4. Gestational carrier

Some complications that may occur during the treatment of infertility are:

  1. Multiple pregnancy
  2. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

If you have hypothyroidism then only option is to take thyroxine tablets regularly for whole life. This is essential because it is a deficiency disorder, where our thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine. This hormone is needed for day to day functioning of brain, involved in every single metabolic reaction in the body. If not well treated it can lead to very serious consequences. Please understand this condition can only be treated by thyroxine replacement. Other practices of medicine do not have any medication for this. Plus you will have to observe dietary restrictions and do regular exercise to avoid weight gain. Treatment is for lifetime. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user. Look for total carbohydrates and sugar content both are important But usually glycaemic index is not written on labels glycaemic index is ability of any food to increase blood sugar immediately after eating that food so a food is bad even if carbohydrate content is low but glycaemic index is high You have to Google glycaemic index Inshort All processed grains have high glycaemic index so they are bad Whole grains oats have low glycaemic index so they are good.

More than 60 percent of the people who are having diabetes do not have any symptoms. Precautions are taken before disease begins and not after. You can consult with me regarding further management.

Fasting 128 and pp180.
For a diabetic patient under medicine, fasting 128/pp 180 and hba1c indicates reasonable good control. Continue medicine and adhere strictly to diabetic diet. Get your blood sugar (fasting&pp) examined 3 monthly and hba1c 6 monthly and consult diabetologist for advice and treatment.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner.

Well, rightly said you should go for a walk atleast 30 min daily or do exercises everyday, besides have a proper diet as per your body type, eat at regular intervals 3-4 hours gap, don't skip any meals, you can have methi water in the morning. Have food rich in fiber like fruits/whole grains (brown rice/whole wheat flour) instead of white rice/maida etc.
