I am suffering from thyroid for last 5 years kindly advice me what to do next taken medicine eltroxin 75.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

I will advise you to go for homoeopathic treatmnt for Thyroid.Although,the path of homoeopathy for your problem iss quiet difficult but very fruitful because you are already taking ELTROXIN for 5 years. Either go on taking just 1 tab eltroxin early morning life long with increased dose at regular intervals along with it side effects or try to adopt a difficult but fruitful path of homoeopathy for next 2-3 years in which no doubt that you will have to regularily take 2 homoeopathic medicines 3 times a day as compared to ELTROXIN( Only once a day nd finish for the day) but with time we will slowly decrease the dose of ELTROXIN( In next 8-12 months of taking homoeopathic treatment you will get rid of ELTROXIN altogether) .And once Eltroxin is out of your life we will start decreasing the dose of homoeopathic medicines.nd in 2-3 years you will be medicine nd Thyroid free. So ass saidearlier either choose the difficult but fruitful part of homoeopathy for 2-3 yearss or just take i tab ELTROXIN life long along with the sideeffects of such mediciness. Choice is yours

The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals and help heal many of your lifestyle diseases.

I'm 38 yrs of age. I am suffering from uric acid l go for run in the morning and gym in the evening could you pls tell me about diet and one thing I eat oats (broken wheat) and oats should I eat or not.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.

Hello, please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure your food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. Its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, also add b complex for feets.

What is thyroid disease? How does it causes How does it is related to high blood pressure.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, "Thyroid disease" is term that encompasses a number of disorders associated with thyroid gland. There can be excess secretion called as Hyperthyroidism and lack of secretion or deficiency known as Hypothyroidism. Both these conditions cause multiple problems. The exact reasons are difficult to identify. Iodine deficiency and autoimmune problems are associated. In hyperthyroidism BP may be more. Thanks.

My father is 43 years old. He have high sugar. Since 1 year. To decrease what shall I do.
To give any advise I should get some more information like - fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, weight and height and level of physical activity daily and dietary habits. Since he has confirmed diabetes, treatment with anti diabetic drugs shoul be started immediately. In addition he should exercise for more than 1 h every day. He should avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos, and grapes. Try and maintain his weight near normal for his height. (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). Consume more green vegetables, salads and complex carbs. If you want any specific advise please come in a private conversation with all the details.

In diabetes frozen shoulder as well as erectile dysfunction occur as a complication of the disease. First thing is you have to achieve a stricter control of blood sugar to prevent complications. For frozen shoulder please consult a physiotherapist and follow the instructions. For erectile dysfunction if you not yet taken tab viagra please try 50 mg about 1 h before intended contact. It should help.

Rebecaji, If you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, and if TSH is around 3 to 4 mU/L, then all the symptoms will be in check. As regards pain in left iliac region, it difficult to say why it is occurring. But if you are consuming a lot of so called chinese food, then it may be the cause, as it has aginomotoo (monosodium glutamate) in considerable quantity. It is better avoid or prepare at home. Thanks.
