I am 61 years old. I am a type 2 diabetes, hypothyroid patient; having cervical spondilitis, enlarged liver and prostate gland. Now, I am taking eltroxin 100 for thyroid and sidda - ayurvedic medicines for diabetes. I am practising yoga, pranayama and meditation regularly. Whenever I get time I go for 30 mts of walk. Nowadays, I used to get numbness in the hands and legs. What is the reason. What is the remedy ?

For cervical spondylitis you need good physiotherapy. If your hba1c /average blood sugar is less than 7 than it can b said that your diabetes is controlled, otherwise from your multiple symptoms//diseases it is less likely, for numbness can b long term complication of diabetes./for which you need. Tab nervup pg 1 daily at night. For long period.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please clarify who is having diabetes? age of the patient and type of diabetes? these details are not clear. Anyway, if some one has diabetes then treatment has to be started with appropriate drugs. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are required. To suggest any treatment there is a need to know fasting, pp sugar level and hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done daily. It will be better if these details are given. Thanks.

Invokana is very new drug in india, its safety in clinical studies is good, however, we are yet to use it regularly. It has definite advantages some of the existing treatments. Taking insulin injections is in fact really good for you as it can bring sugar levels rapidly under control.

People with diabetes should be particularly cautious when it comes to drinking alcohol because alcohol can make some of the complications of diabetes worse. For starters, alcohol impacts the liver in doing its job of regulating blood sugar. Alcohol can also interact with some medications that are prescribed to people with diabetes. Even if you only rarely drink alcohol, talk with your healthcare provider about it so that he or she knows which medications are best for you.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Alcohol interacts with diabetes medications.

Alcohol can cause blood glucose levels to rise or fall, depending on how much you drink. Some diabetes pills (including sulfonylureas and meglitinides) also lower blood glucose levels by stimulating the pancreas to make more insulin. Combining the blood-sugar-lowering effects of the medication with alcohol can lead to hypoglycemia or “insulin shock,” which is a medical emergency. 

2. Alcohol prevents your liver from doing its job.

When you drink alcohol, your liver has to work to remove it from your blood instead of working to regulate blood sugar. For this reason, you should never drink alcohol when your blood glucose is already low.

3. Never drink alcohol on an empty stomach.

Food slows down the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream. The Diabetes Teaching Center at the University of California in San Francisco recommends eating a meal or snack containing carbohydrates when you drink alcohol. 

4. Always test blood sugar before having an alcoholic beverage.

Alcohol impairs your liver’s ability to produce glucose, so be sure to know your blood glucose number before you drink an alcoholic beverage.

5. Alcohol can cause hypoglycemia.

Within a few minutes of drinking alcohol, and for up to 12 hours afterward, alcohol can cause your blood glucose level to drop. After consuming alcohol, always check your blood glucose level to make sure it is in the safe zone. If your blood glucose is below 100 mg/dL, eat a snack to bring it up.

6. You can save your life by drinking slowly.

If you weigh 150 pounds, it takes about two hours for your liver to break down one alcoholic beverage.

Drinking too much alcohol can make you feel dizzy, sleepy, and disoriented—the same symptoms as hypoglycemia. Be sure to wear a bracelet that alerts people around you to the fact that you have diabetes, so that if you start to behave like you are intoxicated they know that your symptoms could be caused by hypoglycemia. If you are hypoglycemic, you need food and/or glucose tablets to raise your blood glucose level.

7. You can save your life by knowing your limit.

Your healthcare provider will tell you how much alcohol is safe for you to drink. Depending on your health condition, that may mean no alcohol at all. In some cases women with diabetes may have no more than one alcoholic beverage a day. Men should have no more than two.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in Biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr Rajkishor, Treatment for hypothyroidism is for life time. This is a condition due to deficiency of thyroxine an important hormone secreted by thyroid. Therefore, there is a need for supplementation and that too for life time. Plus you have to keep checking TSH levels periodically to see if the dose of thyroxine is adequate or needs an increase.

Only exercise is not a option to becoming diabetes it depends on your life style or heridritry or your family history. It depends on your eating habits and time management.

Thyroid Dysfunction and Treatment

M.D.(A.M.), BAMS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Thyroid Dysfunction and Treatment

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland do everything from maintaining your heart rate to regulating your body temperature to controlling your body weight. 

Millions of people worldwide suffer from thyroid dysfunction and several don't know about it. This is primarily because people don't tend to link the common symptoms first with a thyroid disease. Some people suffer from mood swings, trouble with memory, weight gain or fatigue, all of which they look upon individually as a problem and hence not piecing together the puzzle of their real medical condition. Here are a few insights that'll help you cope:

How does the thyroid gland work: About 85% of the hormone produced by our thyroid gland is T4, which is an inactive form of the hormone. After T4 is made, a small amount of is converted into T3, which is the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is then converted to free T3 or reverse T3. It is the free T3 that forms the base of thyroid functions. 

What is hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, accounts for 90% of all thyroid imbalances. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism develop slowly, often over a number of years, which is why it is often missed from regular treatment charts. For instance, fatigue and weight gain are often attributed to stress, lifestyle changes and natural ageing process. But as time goes by, some of the symptoms show a higher level of manifestation like muscle weakness, elevated blood cholesterol, thinning hair, puffy face, hoarse voice and slowed heart rate. 

If left untreated, hypothyroidism may lead to goiter (enlarged thyroid), increased memory problems, low blood pressure, decreased breathing and in extreme cases, unresponsiveness and coma. 
This disease may also occur in newborns, infants and children. Symptoms include excessive sleepiness, poor muscle tone and constipation. It is important to diagnose and treat it early, as in severe cases it may lead to mental and / or physical retardation. In children and teens, it can result in stunted growth, and delayed puberty.

What is hyperthyroidism: It's the opposite of hypothyroidism, which means in this case the thyroid overproduces hormones. Common symptoms include lack of sleep, weakness, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood pressure and hand tremors. While genetics are partially responsible for it, it is also triggered by autoimmune disorder. Hyperthyroidism can be treated with medication, radioactive iodine (not the first or best choice as it harms white cells too) and surgery. Keeping a focus on your calcium and sodium intake is crucial to curb the disorder.

Treatments: Conventional treatments rely mainly on drugs and surgery. Alternative treatments involve diet and lifestyle changes. Taking multivitamins, going gluten free, getting a good night sleep, and reducing stress is all said to help heal your thyroid gradually.

Hi lybrate-user, ya thyroid imbalance can be controlled with the help of constitutional homoeopathic medicines. 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.

Insulin is better, but if he is very well controlled with low dose of tablets, then we can think about tablets. His current medicines, sugar levels are needed to tell which one will be the best option.

If t3 and t4 levels are normal then continue same dose and repeat thyroid function tests after 3 months. That time decision to reduce dosage can be taken.
