HYPOTHYROIDISM




Homeopathic remedies and homeopathy treatment for Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone. Since the main purpose of thyroid hormone is to “run the body’s metabolism”, it is understandable that people with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism.

Hypothyroidism – CAUSE

There are two fairly common causes of hypothyroidism. The first is a result of previous (or currently ongoing) inflammation of the thyroid gland which leaves a large percentage of the cells of the thyroid damaged (or dead) and incapable of producing sufficient hormone. The most common cause of thyroid gland failure is called autoimmune thyroiditis (also called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), a form of thyroid inflammation caused by the patient’s own immune system. The second major cause is the broad category of “medical treatments”. As noted on a number of our other pages, the treatment of many thyroid conditions warrants surgical removal of a portion or all of the thyroid gland. If the total mass of thyroid producing cells left within the body are not enough to meet the needs of the body, the patient will develop hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism – SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Fatigue
Weakness
Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
Coarse, dry hair
Dry, rough pale skin
Hair loss
Cold intolerance (can’t tolerate the cold like those around you)
Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
Constipation
Depression
Irritability
Memory loss
Abnormal menstrual cycles
Decreased libido
Hypothyroidism – HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT & Medicines

Homeopathy offers good prognosis to cases of hypothyroidism. Medicines like Calcare phos, Calcarea carb, Lapis alb, Iodium, Thyroidinum, Spongia, Lycopus, Calcarea iod etc are often found indicated in cases of hypothyroidism.

Apart from medications, you need to follow a strict low protein diet in order to bring down your creatinine levels. The normal creatinine level for adult is 0.5-1.2 mg/dl, and kidney disease patients should pay attention to their creatinine level. Once their creatinine level is higher than the normal level, they need to have effective treatment to lower it. In this article, we will introduce some common foods that can help decrease creatinine level. Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine, which is an important part of muscles, and creatinine is mainly removed from blood by kidneys. When the kidneys are damaged, the kidney function will fail to work well, and the creatinine level cant be excreted promptly. Creatinine level is often a sign of severe kidney damage. When the creatinine level is higher than the normal level, it means less than 50% kidney function for kidney disease patients. Cabbage, lettuce, garlic, onion, omega 3 fatty acid rich foods, cucumbers are best foods. Restrict non veg, and protein rich foods.

I hope you are not thinking that just by drinking green tea you will loose weight. If yes then trust me you won't ever. Take whichever green tea you want. It will just help a bit that too only if you control your diabetes and do exercises. First of all tell me: 1. Your weight and height. 2. Age. 3. Your blood sugar levels. 4. Medicines you are taking. Revert with the asked details for a better help.

Lybrate-user, most often diabetes hardly produces any symptoms, hence many people do not come to know about it. When fully developed it may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Also passing urine in the night 2 or 3 times. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products and high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, to avoid weight increase and improve insulin action.

Hello, thanks for the query If thyroid funtions are normal then results will be normal. So you may have to look what other reasons are there for increasing weight. Plus it would have been better if you had actually given the TSH value, because some times the subclinical. Hypothyroidism also can lead to increase in weight. Thanks.

Anti-thyroid medications. These medications gradually reduce symptoms of hyperthyroidism by preventing your thyroid gland from producing excess amounts of hormones. to eat (and why) to improve your thyroid function: Cruciferous vegetables. Eat them raw, cooked or juiced. ... Brazil nuts. These are the richest dietary source of selenium, which is essential in converting thyroxine to its active form, T3. ... Sea vegetables. ...

Sir, my uric acid is 7.02 mg/dl. Can I cure this disease permanently for better life. please help me.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Sir, my uric acid is 7.02 mg/dl. Can I cure this disease permanently for better life. please help me.
Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male) Some diets that are rich in purine end up causing an increased production of uric acid. In other cases, it may be due to a completely sedentary lifestyle. Less intake of water also may be to blame in some cases as water plays an important role in washing out the excess of the uric acid. Regular usage of some medicines also cause the uric acid levels to rise. Another important factor is being overweight as obese people are much more likely to get gout as compared to those who have normal weight. It is a tragedy of the modern world that the superior advertising and marketing power of the allopathic system of medicine has eclipsed the good and genuine work of Homeopathy. This is largely because Homeopathic system of medicine cannot compete with the money power of Allopathy. Just because allopathy does not have any cure for gout, patients tend to think that there is no cure for gout at all. People are not aware of the great work that Homeopathy can do in the cure of gout. I cannot stress enough here that homeopathic medicines are pretty effective at curing the acute as well as the chronic gout You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

I want to know what is the symptoms of diabetes mellitus & what is the symptoms of megaloblastic anemia.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus invariably does not produce any easily identifiable symptoms, that is why many persons do not come to about its presence. When fully developed it may cause excessive urination, excessive thirst, excessive hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Megaloblastic anemia causes following symptoms: breathlessness on exertion, muscle weakness, abnormally pale skin. Pale conjunctiva and pale tongue, smooth tongue, glossitis (inflammation of tongue), nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea, rapid heart beat, tingling and numbness in hands and feet. All these symptoms improve rapidly once the condition improves.

Crackling sounds could be early signs of arthritis as per latest study. Its better that you take good amounts of purple and yellow fruits and vegetables. Alongside take a good amount of glucosamine enriched supplement for your healthy bones. Calcium levels seldom give us any accurate picture. Consult your orthopedic doctor for more information.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Try meditation or yoga to relieve your stress.

Considering your age of 30 years type one diabetes is unlikely. However if you go through complete evaluation than the diagnosis can be confirmed. If you do not have type one diabetes than other medicines can be tried.

Hi' can be thyroid disease cured. Is it necessary to taking treatment for life long.

MS - ENT,MBBS
ENT Specialist, Kolkata
Hi First: medicines are mandatory. Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs. Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise. You will start better as the levels of your hormone normalises. Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Let me know. Take care
