Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for uric acid take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day.

Mr Pinakesh, If TSH level is 10 milli units / ml, it is high, signifying she has hypothyroidism and needs to start treatment immediately. Otherwise, symptoms of hypothyroidism can be quite severe and troublesome. Hypothyroidism leads to weight gain, so that has to be controlled, then initiation of treatment is very essential.

Mr Deepak, It is difficult give the answer, unless sugar levels (fasting and PP) are mentioned and HbA1c% is known. Some times to control initial severe glucotoxicity Insulin is used along with oral anti diabetic drugs, to bring blood glucose down. Then it may be discontinued. This depends on response.

My fasting sugar is 130 and P. P 160 am I diabetic? I am already a BP patient.

MBBS
General Physician,
Fasting sugar more than 126 may indicate diabetes. But single reading would not tell us anything. Kindly repeat the reading two more times. Take the best of three readings. Fasting should be less than 126 and pp should be less than 200. In the mean time please avoid too much carbohydrate rich food like extra rice, and high fat content food, pizza, burgers, etc. Shift to roti, wheat based meals. And take small frequent meals daily rather than heavy meals at a single time. Kindly get back to me with reports.

I am 28 years with diabetes and having insulin 4 times a day. Please sugest me a diat paln to reduse the insulin intake.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn't able to keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels. Wat *you do* most important than medicines to maintain the blood sugar levels normal. After all, you are the one who is affected by diabetes and cares for it every day. Only you know how you feel and what you're willing and able to do. You do the exercise. You make and eat the foods on your meal plan. You take the medicine or inject the insulin. You check your blood sugar (glucose) levels and keep track of the results. And of course, you are the first to notice any problems. Home remedies for controlling blood sugar levels: 1. Chew 7 leaves of neem early in the morning on an empty stomach. 2. Powder of fenugreek seeds, neem leaves, bitter gourd and black cumin all in equal quantities should be taken with warm water twice a day 1 hour before food.

Infertility: How Best to Treat It?

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gyneacology), FNB Reproductive Medicine
Gynaecologist, Hyderabad
Infertility: How Best to Treat It?

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. For women aged 35 and older, inability to conceive after 6 months is generally considered infertility. Repeated pregnancy loss (2 or more spontaneous pregnancy losses) can also be considered infertility. Recent estimates indicate infertility affects 10-15 percent of the population in their childbearing years.

If you experience recurrent pregnancy loss, or if you have not been able to become pregnant within a year (six months if the woman’s age is over 35, 2-3 months if over 40), then you may benefit from assessment and treatment by a reproductive endocrinologist - a doctor with a special interest, training and expertise in the area of infertility. It’s a state that results in the abnormal functioning of the male or female reproductive system.

The causes for infertility could be:

  1. Male factor - erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, problems with quality, count and quantity of semen

  2. Female factor - tubal factor, ovulatory problems, abnormality of uterus, hormonal imbalance 

  3. Antisperm antibodies

The prime symptom is very obvious i.e. unable to have baby despite of having sex without any contraceptives.

Factors affecting fertility:

  1. Age: Female fertility gradually declines in the 30s, particularly after age 35. Each month that she tries, a healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has a 20% chance of getting pregnant.

  2. Smoking: It increases risk of getting infertile and reduces the chances of treatment.

  3. Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol is said to lower the sperm count in men.

  4. Obesity: An overweight person has a higher chances of having sperm abnormality.

  5. Workout: Less or very heavy work out is said to increase the chances of infertility.

  6. Mental Stress: Studies suggests that ovulation and sperm production may be affected by mental stress. If at least one partner is stressed it is possible that the frequency of sexual intercourse is less, resulting in a lower chance of conception.

  7. Sexually Transmitted Infections can also adversely affect the fertility of a person.

When to take further advice and course of action?

In case the women trying to conceive is less than 35 years of age, then 12 months and if more than 35 years, then in 6 months itself one needs to get in touch with the Specialist/Reproductive Endocrinologist/Gynaecologist or a Urologist for a complete diagnosis.

Many cases of apparent infertility are treatable. Infertility may have a single cause in one of the partners, or it could be the result of a combination of factors in both men and women.

There are many treatments available that improve the chances of having a baby. Such treatments include:

  1. Hormones Treatment

  2. Drugs for fertility

  3. Surgery in some cases

Also one the oldest form of medications such as Ayurveda as well as Homeopathy is said to have a wonderful treatment of Infertility. With the developments in medical sciences, there are lot of treatments available; however, such treatments sometimes become the victim of their own success causing multiple births – Two, Three or may be more.

Some Assisted Treatments are:

  1. Intrauterine insemination

  2. In Vitro Fertilization

  3. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection

  4. Donation of Sperm or Egg

  5. Assisted Hatching

  6. Electric or Vibratory Stimulation to achieve ejaculation

  7. Surgical Sperm Aspiration

It is important to understand the complete treatment before going ahead and be aware of the possible outcomes and be psychologically ready.

Please do not keep it to yourself and consult an expert. Never go for self medication!

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.
