Two problems your father is having. First is uncontrolled diabetes even with medicines. It can be tackled easily with diet control, regular exercise and increase the medicine if needed. Discuss with your doctor and if you are not satisfied take a second openion. Second problem is of frzen shoulder which can be taken care by a physiotherapist.

Hello Doctors, is eating peanuts and peanut butter good for hypothyroidism? I am taking 125 mcg Thyronorm every day. ...
Mr. lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present following things (foods, veges) need to be avoided - soy beans, soy containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard, radish and coffee. The reason for avoiding these products is that they affect thyroxine absorption and action. But some times other than soy beans and soy products rest of the things can be taken, but well after 4 hours of the dosage of thyroxine. Plus you should avoid bakery items, other products made out of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. For being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. As regards diabetes control it is essential to maintain fasting glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism only appropriate medication is taking adequate dose of Levothyroxine. There is NO OTHER MEDICINE. On treatment TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Hi looking at your fluctuating sugar levels, it is better to shift to glargine the basal analogue insulin along with oral drugs (which can be reduced). Glargine is a long acting insulin needing just one prick a day. It will produce excellent control of blood sugar. Initial dosage can be 6 units once/d, to be increased based on fasting sugar level every alternate day by 2 units till target sugar level (say 100 mg or so) is achieved. For this self monitoring of sugar level is necessary. If you are willing I can guide you. In the long run this will be a better treatment.

The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. But, the evidence based medical advice, on diet for diabetics, is not that restrictive and allows a lot of room for having fun with food! All the expert agencies on diabetes in the world, such as ADA, AACE, IDF and our own ICMR, have published guidelines on managing your diet in diabetes, which we at FWI analyzed to formulate our advice for diabetics, which you will find below: The three most important considerations in diet management in diabetic people are: Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Managing the overall calorie intake to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight Keeping the intake bad fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD 1. Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Diabetes is a primarily a disease of insulin resistance or insulin deficiency, in which the physiological action of insulin, that of helping in uptake of blood glucose by body cells and thereby keeping the blood sugar levels in control, is less than adequate. All dietary carbohydrates are broken down by our digestive system into glucose, which then is added to the blood. Therefore, the most important consideration to prevent or delay complications of diabetes is keeping the blood sugar levels in control Diabetics have to know their carb containing food very well and monitor their carb intake on regular basis, but they are not required to give up totally on sugar, rice or sweets, contrary to what is the general notion! Same amount of carbs whether as whole grains or table sugar, will raise the Post Prandial (two hours post meal) blood sugar to nearly the same level, so substituting regular roti with say a laddoo, once in a while is OK, provided you make sure that laddoo gives the same amount of carbs as the rotis you have given up and your overall calorie intake in the meal is constant as well. This you can manage by portion size control and carb counting But having laddoos instead of roti regularly is not a good idea because good sources of carbohydrates such as whole grains have proteins, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals in addition, whereas bad sources such as table sugar or laddoo will not have these and will give you empty calories. Also, these sweets will be more calorie-dense (1 tablespoon sugar gives 60 calories whereas one roti gives nearly 80 calories) and will not be very filling! So, if you want to have simple sugar or sweets occasionally, make sure that you replace the healthy carbs with these sweets, such that same amount of calories and carbs are provided by them and don’t just add sweets to your regular meal Remember, quantity control and moderation are absolutely imperative! 2. Managing the overall calorie intake to lose or maintain a healthy weight Losing excess body weight helps in patients with diabetes in several ways. Besides this will help you in controlling your risk of heart diseases and a host of other diseases at the same time! In diabetes, even losing 3-5% of your existing body weight will result in better blood sugar levels, but losing up to 10% results in better blood lipid profile and reduced risk of heart disease To know more, go to ‘weight loss for diabetics’ and read your way into fitness! 3. Keeping the intake of ‘bad’ fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD The complications of CVD, include heart attack, stroke (brain attack), foot gangrene etc. All complications of CVD, which is the biggest cause of death in diabetics Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

Hi, Thankyou for the query. Any herbal or food remedy needs to be monitored along with medication. It's totally upto your body how it reacys to it. A remedy may suit one person but the same may not suit another, you have to observe. Also avoid taking too many remedies and just stick to one. Lastly, your basic diet is very crucial for any medication or herbal remedy to help. If your diet is not good you will not only have poor energy but your blood sugars will also not stay in limits. Please go for a proper diet consultation to improve health and manage sugars as well.

Can Homeopathy Cure Infertility in Females?

Can Homeopathy Cure Infertility in Females?

For a married couple, having a child is the next step to completing the family picture. However, for various reasons, some attributed to the male and some to the female, this picture remains incomplete.
Talking to a doctor is one of the best starting points. There could be deep-rooted causes for this issue, and homeopathy aims in treating the root cause and not just infertility. A good homeopath will ask you numerous questions to find out associated symptoms, family history, etc., and then arrive at a remedy that would work best for you. This is a highly customised therapy and so self-medication based on a friend or family member’s recommendation is best avoided.

Infertility in females is often caused by the following reasons:

  1. Irregular menstruation
  2. Hormonal imbalance
  3. Advancing age
  4. Emotional stress
  5. Obesity
  6. Excessive smoking
  7. Alcohol consumption
  8. Sexually transmitted diseases (Chlamydia, gonorrhoea)
  9. Structural abnormalities in the pelvic area including fibroids, pelvic adhesions, blocked fallopian tubes, etc.
  10. Endometriosis
  11. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  12. Pelvic Inflammatory disease
  13. Thyroid disorders
  14. Diabetes

With more and more women coming out in the open to discuss, researchers have started working towards identifying the problem and working towards the treatment. The success rate of homeopathy in treating infertility is also on the rise. As with any medical condition, homeopathy treats not just the problem or symptom at hand, but the person holistically. Read on to know some of the common homeopathic remedies, but make sure you have a detailed discussion with your doctor to identify what would work best for you. Self-medication is best avoided.

  1. In women with reduced sexual drive, Agnus and Sepia are widely used. The vaginal is extremely dry which could be painful during sex. There is also a bearing down sensation of the uterus in these women.
  2. In women with reduced menstruation, Pulsatilla and Sepia are widely used. The periods are never on the expected date, and when they occur, the flow is quite scanty and suppressed. Pulsatilla is also used when ovarian cysts are present. Sepia is useful in women that are prone to miscarriages.
  3. In women with excessive menstruation, Calcarea and Aletris are widely used. The periods happen before time, is too long with profuse bleeding. This excessive bleeding also causes anaemia, weakness, and fatigue. These women might also have frequent abortions.
  4. In women who have experienced a miscarriage in their third month earlier, with uterine and ovarian inflammation, Sabina is used.
  5. In women who are not able to retain sperms, Natrum carb is useful. There could be an offensive smelling vaginal discharge which is also very irritating and itching.

These are just some of the common remedies, but there are more, and each patient would require different therapy based on associated symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

To give a proper diet plan I need following details: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, present dietary details, extent of daily exercise, drugs being taken with dosage, lipid profile. After looking at those details I will be able to suggest a diet plan. Thanks.
