I have not tried for IVF till then but now before proceeding towards it, I need proper guidance.

lybrate-user, Arre you on treatment with thyroxine tablets? Because Anti TPO antibodies, indicate there is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. In this situation TSH can be normal, but there is hypothyroidism. That affects menstrual cycles. So getting conceived is difficult. Since you have not mentioned anything about thyroxine treatment, I asked this question. Thanks.

I am trying for a baby since three months but could not conceive. Should I go to Dr. For the treatment now? What kind of treatments are available for infertility? please Dr. suggest me.

See one thing we don't know generally is, it is not like we see in movies that a single time unprotected sexual intercourse in fertile period of woman makes her pregnant, actually scientifically whole human race have only 20-25% fertility chances to get pregnancy even if both partners are completely normal & had sex every single day of the fertile period. So ideally it is advisable to wait & keep try for 1 year, only after that you should consult about infertility. Even though, meanwhile you can rule out major causes of infertility after 4-6 months like semen analysis of male partner at your convenient pathological lab & sonography of female partner for any anatomical deformity of uterus, pcod or others & also do blood test of female partner like tsh, cbc, urine routine micro, rbs to be sure. Also you should know when to have sex: considering 28 days of average menses cycle with day 1 as first day of last menses period, normally 10th day to 20th day are considered fertile period, every alternate day sex between 10th day to 20th day of cycle is ideal to get pregnancy.

Infertility - 6 Causes Behind It

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility - 6 Causes Behind It

Infertility is characterized by the inability to get pregnant even after unprotected intercourse for over a year. Repeated miscarriages along with other factor can often be the reason behind infertility in women.

Probable causes of Infertility in Women:

  1. The most common cause of infertility in women is an abnormal uterus. Congenital flaws, such as septate uterus can lead to repeated miscarriages. The normal pH level of the uterus is approximately in the range of 6.6 to 7.6. So a pH level below or above this range can lead to an abnormal uterus.

  2. Ovulation defects (such as the eggs not properly maturing in the ovaries or the ovaries not releasing mature eggs) are other causes as well.

  3. Another possible cause is Endometriosis, a condition wherein the tissues which line the inner walls of the uterus start to grow on the outsides of the uterus, such as in the pelvis or the abdomen.

  4. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a condition wherein the ovaries become enlarged with tiny cysts growing on them, is another important cause for infertility. Hormonal imbalances are at the root of this condition.

  5. A block or damage to the fallopian tubes can prevent the sperm to properly fertilize the egg thus, leading to infertility.

  6. Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as obesity or being underweight, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking and not following a healthy diet are other important causes of infertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hi I am taking medicines for hypothyroidism, when at the earliest can these be stopped. Thanks,

MBBS, MD, CCEBDM(diabetology), CCMTD(thyroid dissorders)
General Physician,
Thyroid disorders are supposed to chronic problems which may last throughout life. But the good thing is management is easy once the diagnosis is made properly & medication like eltroxin/thyrox are cheap too. Only things you have to do is follow lifestyle modification instructions given by your physician, do routine investigations of serum t3, t4 & tsh (at least every 3 months) and stick to the dose adjustment protocol of the drug. Thank you.

Hello, No one should take medicines past expiry. Just like you will not consume food past expiry. Two things may happen - either the drug becomes ineffective and will not work, or the drug changes into something more toxic and may cause harm. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

My uric acid is 1.1 mg/dl. I am a 24 year male. What should I do. What are the medicines I should take and what type of diet should I adhere to.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Usually, uric acid level increases in a body when a person does not drink enough water. It is a waste product of the body and needs to expelled out. And in order to do so, you need to drink enough water. Drink 2-3 litres of water per day and it will come back to normal range.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Hyperthyroidism a hormone related condition, has no permanent cure. Treatment with anti thyroid drugs is usually given for 18 to 24 months. Sometimes thyroid function does return to normal. But invariably problem comes back, then the option is either surgery or using radio active Iodine. Following which patient has to be put on thyroxine for lifetime. There is no cure in this condition. Thanks.

What should I eat as a good diet as I have suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am 34 years ole female I have a diabetes 1 year ago my weight is 78 now how I control my weight.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Diabetes is a lifestyle disease, hence the most important treatment for controlling it is to follow proper diet and lifestyle. Here is the details you must keep in mind for controlling blood sugar and its complications: 1. Maintain body weight. 2. Do not fast/ don't have a long break in meals. Instead of having three big meals, start 5-6 frequent but small meals. 3. Do regular light exercise along with meditation (stress is a major factor for uncontrolled blood sugar) 4. Take more sprouts. 5. Instead of pure curd, take diluted curd mixed with cucumber, onion (raayta). 6. Use cow milk and its products. 7. In fruits, you may take papaya, apple, orange, pear, jamun, guava in average quantity. 8. Soybean chunks, dal, and atta is good. 9. Use multi grain atta (wheat+ jau+ bajra). Avoid plain only wheat floor chapatis. 10. Sabudana khichri is good in breakfast. 11. Curd made by methi seeds is good (boil the milk with methi seeds and make curd of this). 12. Take unpolished rice more and take less white rice. 13. Strictly do not take sugar in liquid form, like shikanji, coke, but its not so harmful to take solid sugar like a piece of mithai (just as comparatively not recommended regularly). Also you should visit an experienced ayurveda physician to know what ayurveda medicines are helpful in controlling diabetes.

Norma level of vit D is between between 20-50 ng/ml. A level less than 20 ng/ml indicates Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D3 is essential for healthy bone, teeth, muscle, cell growth, immunity,neuro muscular functioning and overall health. Deficiency causes ricket/osteomalacia, poor hair growth, increased risk of cancer. Treatment-Vitamin D3 60,000 unit/wk for 3 -6 months 1. Expose yourself to sunlight for 15-20 minutes daily in the morning 2. Take Milk, cheese, egg yolk, Fish (salmon/mackerel/ trout/sardines/tuna) cod liver oil, Mushroom, cereals, orange juice. 3.

MBBS, CCEBDM

Hi For your age, fasting blood sugar of less than 110 is a good control. Have a high protein dinner and do not have heavy or high calorie dinner. Finish your dinner 2 hours before going to bed. This will keep the fasting blood sugar normal.

I had diabetes test. And fasting is 89. Is this harmful because I am only 19 years old. What precautions should me taken in order to maintain sugar level.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose is absolutely normal nothing to worry. But looking at your height and weight it is clear that you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI 30.41 kgs/M2. Your ideal body weight has to be 55 kgs. Therefore, if you do not want diabetes to come, then it is absolutely essential to take a restricted diet, avoid sweets, junk food, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and also avoid smoking and alcohol. Thanks.
