For that you need to give more details like your daily routine, eating habits, since when you are suffering. How it started, etc. The more data you will give the better we can match medicines to your personality thanks.

I am 21 year old male. I am having severe hair fall. Uncountable. My hair fall started from 2 years ago. I took treatment in so many clinics and doctors but nothing worked and at last I tested my thyroid. The results are T3= 112, T4 = 8.3, TSH = 11.07. I think TSH level is very high and it is Hypothyroidism. Right? Will I take medicine for balancing it. Because this is causing excessive hair fall I think. Please give me suggestions for it. So that I can decide what to do.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is the main reason for hair fall, so controlling it is very essential. With treatment tsh should be around 3 to 4 milli units / ml, then there will be a greater benefit and hair fall can be controlled.

Hi, I'm Prabha, 36 years old. I'm diabetic and taking medicines. During the intake of medicine also, fasting blood sugar (107) is more than normal value and after food blood sugar is within the range. How to control that? What type of diabetics I'm having?

107 Fasting Sugar is in normal range. You have not mentioned PP level. Also A1C test will give confirmatory results. Type of Diabetes is Type 2 since you must have had this problem in adulthood. Your BMI is currently 39.82 which falls in Obese Cl 2. Closer to Cl 3. Your body is carrying about 32 kgs extra weight. You need to work on this and bring your weight down. Every step you take will help you to reduce your Diabetes Levels and other symptoms you are facing. I can presume you are on to some food addictions. Find a way to break them. Better to join some organised aerobic/dance/yoga classes. Eat more fruits and salads and drink more water. You are young today and you can take steps to be fitter and healthier. Never give up.

Mr. Lybrate-user, normal sugar level is same for a non diabetic person or one with diabetes. To say that your diabetes is in good control, fasting should be nearer 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg. And hba1c%<7. To achieve this apart from appropriate treatment diet control and exercise are also equally important.

Hello madam, blood sugar level of 202 post lunch is not normal and you must undergo further testing. You have to undergo a test named hba1c which will help to determine your blood sugar level over past three months and in turn help to understand if you are suffering from diabetes. For itching and dryness, you can apply hydramost lotion all over your body or only on the area where you get itching. Dryness causes itching which in turn increases the dryness and further increases itching.

I am 45 year old diabetic patent I want knowledge for latest come medicine BGR 34 for me.
Mr Sushil Kumar, BGR - 34, tablets, is a combination of some herbal extracts, supposed to be working on diabetes mellitus. But the researchers themselves have said that it has not been tried in human beings, there are no clinical trials to show its benefits in controlling blood sugar in humans. According the details available, it has been tried only on rats, there too it has shown 67% efficacy, which is same as placebos. So there is no question of this drug being effective in treating diabetes in humans. Rest I leave it to your judgement.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Doing good amount of exercise, taking a healthy balanced diet that provides exact calories as required definitely helps in better control of blood glucose levels. Since there is no mention of either the medication being taken and actual blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, there is no way to assess whether your glucose levels are in control. For a young person with T2 DM it is essential to maintain FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%< 6.8. If not then you are inviting various long term complications of diabetes affecting every single vital organ. As regards giving a specific diet plan, I need to know your current dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, current medication with proper dosage. Then only I will be able to give a diet plan. Thanks.

I have hyperthyroid from 6 months and taking thyronorm 50 mcg. Now my TSH levels are normal. I'm drinking milk and eating eggs for strong bones and for stamina is it ok to drink milk and eat eggs when TSH are normal?

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
You can eat any food. Please maintain an ideal weight according to your height. The BMI should be in the normal range. So you should eat all healthy food and not just focus on milk and eggs. A balanced diet is ideal. Include more fruits and vegetables everyday as they contain fresh vitamins and other nutrients which can be easily absorbed. With proper nutritional support and exercise the bones become naturally strong. Exercise everyday along with some basic yoga and pranayama to overcome your thyroid problem in a very natural way. Take rest for 6-8 hrs and avoid all bad habits. Repeat the tests again after 4-5 months. You can also take the help of Homeopathy if there is not much improvement. You can contact me for a private consultation and further guidance.

it is very bad if no treatment is being taken for diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause serious damage to almost all vital organs and systems in the body. Diabetes can cause retinopathy leading to blindness. It can affect small and big blood vessels affecting kidneys, heart, peripheral blood vessels. In india alone more than 1 lac legs are amputated due to diabetic foot problems. It causes severe neuropathy and loss of sensation in lower limbs. Causes silent heart attacks. I do not understand why treatment was stopped by you. If very competent doctor was treating, then his treatment and instructions should be followed. With the high blood glucose levels mentioned you will have to start on insulin injections or else you are heading for serious problems. Thanks.

How to control uric acid in bones? its 8.6 present. Please tell me what should i do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Diabetes - Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Diabetes - Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Diabetes is basically a disorder of the metabolism causing excessive thirst and the production of large amounts of urine. To further elaborate one need to understand the role of insulin in the body. While eating, the body turns food into sugar or glucose. At that time pancreas is supposed to produce the right amount of insulin to move the glucose from our blood into our cells. In diabetics, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the body cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. Due to this, glucose levels rise in the blood, floods into the urine and passes out of the body, making the body lose its main source of fuel. Diabetes is of many types, but the most common is Type 1 and Type 2.

How to treat Diabetes:

Controlling blood sugar level is the major goal of diabetes treatment, in order to prevent complications of the disease. Treatment may be in Allopathy or Homeopathy, conventional medicine often uses insulin itself in the treatment of diabetes. Since this is kind of replacement, so diabetes becomes a life-long disease. Homeopathy can be used effectively in the treatment. Let’s see how diabetes can be worked with Homeopathy.

Diabetes & Homeopathy

In homeopathy, the main focus is on functioning of the pancreas in efficient insulin production. There are specific medicines which are used effectively in the treatment of all the stages of the diseases.

Homeopathic treatment can help improve the general health of a person with diabetes:

  1. If a person with diabetes is in good health, his or her insulin requirements will be steady and the blood glucose well controlled at the same time.

  2. If the general health is poor, it can be very difficult to achieve good control.  

Homeopaths resort to different approaches towards diabetes Management of Blood Sugar. First is when the blood sugar level is very high, the priority is to control it and there are homeopathic remedies that could reduce the sugar. The commonly used remedies are Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid etc. These are classical homeopathic remedies.

Depending on the level of the blood sugar and the requirement of the patient, doses are given with doctor’s consultation. It’s a holistic approach in medicine. This treats the patient taking into consideration the mental, emotional and physical peculiarities of the person who is affected with this state. In this, it is considered that the disease is a mere deviation in life force and hence all the efforts are to correct this disorder. The treatment will be to bring into balance the various systems involved in diabetes, for example, pancreas, hormones, and your immune system. Treatment will again be different if you have other ailments along with diabetes.

Homeopathy regards health as a state of balancing the equilibrium of the life force. Whatever treatment is taken it’s always advisable to be in regular touch with the doctor and keep sharing the health status with the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.
