Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus (t2) occurs either due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus overweight and inactivity contribute in increasing and maintaining high blood glucose level. Hence, treatment is directed towards increasing insulin level by giving certain drugs that stimulate secretion. Secondly certain other drugs are used to reduce resistance. All these are oral preparations. Some times hyperglycemia is very severe, then insulin injections have to be used, along with oral drugs. As regards other medical practices, there are really no drugs available which can stimulate insulin secretion or replace insulin itself. Those drugs can be used as supportive medicines. I have answered even though you wanted an ayurvedic specialist to give the answer, because I felt certain facts should be brought to your notice. Plus modern anti diabetes drugs are quite safe. Thanks.

He is a Type 1 juvenile diabetic with uncontrolled disease. If he is already kept on Insulin his doses need to be re planned. He needs better management under the supervision of a diabetologist.

Dear, since your father has high sugar, he should follow a strict diet wherein he should restrict intake of sugar & sweetened foods like cakes, chocolates, mithai etc. He should have more of fibrous foods like fruits & vegetables, dry fruits. He should also avoid fried foods which increase weight &are harmful on such a condition. Along with diet he should also do some regular exercise like walking, jogging etc to keep his sugar indrt control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes mellitus does lead to erectile dysfunction, even when blood glucose control is good. If the control is bad then the affection is much earlier. Hence primary need is to have a strict blood glucose control. First and foremost id to control your blood glucose levels, fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP :150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Then you may consider using PDE-V inhibitor jsut before the expected sexual contact. Thanks.

Infertility - Ayurvedic Remedies are the Solution!

Infertility - Ayurvedic Remedies are the Solution!

Fertility is a potential for reproduction. In other words, fertility is an ability to have babies or to reproduce. When fertility rate in a community, increases more babies are born. To produce an offspring it depends on age, health and other factors of the woman. When we talk about fertility rates it means the number of births that happen during a certain time period in a specific location. On the other end, lack of ability to reproduce is termed as infertility. There are various treatments to deal with fertility issues and one of the ancient and natural as well as a trusted treatment is Ayurveda.

Causes
Female infertility is caused due to structural problems like blocked fallopian tubes, a defect in cervical canal, uterine fibroids or polyps. Hormonal imbalance leading to ovulation problems too can cause infertility. In males. infertility may have anatomical, psychological, hormonal or lifestyle related causes. The cause of infertility in approximately 20% of couples can't be determined using the currently available methods of investigation. From Ayurvedic perspectives, shukra dhatu can get affected by various physical, mental causes and even by serious diseases. Poor quality shukra dhatu can cause infertility in males & females.

Symptoms

Failure to reproduce

Ayurveda For Infertility

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and Spirit. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease. Fertility problems are increasing these days for many young couples. There are many factors which account for this like Lifestyle, delayed marriages, diet, etc. But Ayurveda not only does explain how to increase fertility with herbal supplements, but it also focuses on how to have healthy children.

For a pregnancy to be healthy and successful, a couple needs to take care of the following four essential factors:

  1. Sperm/Ovum (Seeds)
  2. Uterus (Soil)
  3. Nourishment (Water)
  4. Time for Conception (Timing of Sowing)

Reproductive health, in both men and women, depends on the health of the reproductive tissue or shukra dhatu. In women, shukra creates the ovum as part of the monthly cycle, and in men, the semen is formed due to sexual stimulation. The shukra is created as part of a long chain of metabolic transformations. It starts with the digestion of food, then goes on to the transformation of food to nutrient fluid, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow, and finally, to shukra tissue. Healthy shukra tissue, then, according to Ayurveda, depends on the health of all the other tissues in the body.

Foods to Nourish All Seven Dhatus (Bringhana)

  1. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables
  2. Dairy proteins, including milk, lassi, and panir (a fresh cheese made of milk)
  3. Whole grains
  4. Mung dhal
  5. Soaked almonds or soaked walnuts
  6. Dried fruits such as dates, figs, and raisins
  7. Sweet, juicy fruits such as mangoes, peaches, plums, and pears
  8. If your digestion is strong, eat urad dhal (available at Indian grocery stores) cooked with equal parts turmeric, cumin, coriander, and fennel.
  9. A banana cooked in ghee, cinnamon and cardamom is a tasty and wholesome dessert for people with strong digestion.

Foods to Enhance the Reproductive Tissue (Vrishya)

  1. Asparagus
  2. Broccoli
  3. Milk
  4. Date-milk shake
  5. Mango milkshake
  6. Rice pudding

Spices such as ajwain powder, cumin (which purifies the uterus in women and the genitourinary tract in men), turmeric (to improve the interaction between hormones and targeted tissues), and black cumin.
In general, it's important to eat a wide variety of foods in order to receive all the essential nutrients. Keep trying new vegetables and fruits, and rotate your menus to make sure you're not eating the same thing day after day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

I would advice you to continue with meteor. Metformin is the first drug of choice in any new diabetic. It has many advantages. It also reduces insulin resistance and provides slowing of disease progression.

Himaniji, TSH levels increase if the dose of thyroxine given is inadequate. Your starting treatment itself should have been higher. Since the dose was reduced from 50 mcg to 37.5 mcg, which was definitely inadequate, causing the rise in TSH levels. Inspite of taking medication regularly TSH level will not come down on the contrary it will go up, as has happened in your case. On treatment for achieving control TSH level should come between 3 to 4 mU/L. Thanks.
