Alpanaji, if you have diabetes and if it is not in control, you may have to get up on a number occasions at night, which does disturb the sleep. So please let me know if blood sugar levels are in control or not? fasting should be 100 mg or there about, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. This plus regular exercise daily for 1 hour will definitely help you get good sleep. Taking drugs to induce sleep is never a good option.

For cystitis get a urine culture and sensitivity test done and take treatment accordingly to cure cystitis. Drink plenty of water and take urine alkaliser. Typhoid is curable see a physician for the same. You can also get vaccinated for typhoid. Adenomyosis can be controlled with medicine see a gynaecologist for the same. Being cancelled by some boys is not end of world. Exercise daily eat a balanced diet and stay fit and live life confidently.

Which yoga poses are completely remove diabetes and blood sugar from human body. Suggest yoga name please.
Mr. Thanks for the query. To my knowledge there is no yogasana which can "remove" or cure diabetes. Manduk asana supposed to be helpful. Diabetes is a hormone (insulin) deficiency disease, hence one has to either take insulin injections or take drugs that increase insulin secretion and also that reduce insulin resistance. Teratment is for life time. Thanks.

Despite Thyroxine 150 MCG your thyroid hormone requirement may still not be fulfilled and your latest TSH level will help in that. Hypothyroid states are associated with sluggish bowel functions and may be the cause of constipation. Take enough fiber in diet in form of salads, leafy vegetables, pithy fruits, germinated grains etc.

Hypothyroidism in newborn and children.
Frequently asked questions?

Q1. Did I do something wrong in my pregnancy which resulted in my baby having congenital hypothyroidism?
A The answer is most certainly NO. In the vast majority of cases, no cause can be identified and no link has been found with drugs, smoking or any particular foods

Q2. I am worried that I might miss giving my baby a dose of thyroxine. Would this matter?
A. Fortunately, thyroxine lasts in the body for quite some time and so even if a day?s dose is missed, your child will still benefit from the previous day?s dose. Clearly it is important to maintain a regular daily treatment and it will certainly matter if several days are missed.
Q3. Are there any side effects of thyroxine treatment?
A. No. Thyroxine is identical to the natural hormone produced by the thyroid gland and is a relatively simple chemical substance. It is really a replacement hormone treatment rather than a drug, so any side effects only occur if the dose is wrong. If too much thyroxine is given, symptoms of hyperthyroidism will occur. If not enough is given, the hypothyroid symptoms will return. Thyroxine tablets can be stored at room temperature, last a long time, and are widely available throughout the world.
Q4. What is the risk of having other children with hypothyroidism?
A. In the commonest form of hypothyroidism, i.E. When the gland has not developed properly, the risk of having another affected child is small, perhaps about 1 in 100. When the cause of hypothyroidism is due to a block in the production of the hormone, rather that normal development of the gland, the risk of having an affected child is much higher and is usually 1 in 4 in each pregnancy, with boys and girls equally affected. The late onset form of hypothyroidism also has an increase risk of brothers, sisters and other relatives having thyroid problems.
Q5. If my child is at risk of developing hypothyroidism, for instance they have Turner or Down?s syndrome, how often should they have a blood test?
A. Probably every one to two years, but your specialist will advise you on this.
Q6. How long will treatment last for?
A. We must assume that the treatment is for life as the thyroid gland will not grow again or recover, but the treatment is easy and well tolerated. White temporary or transient hypothyroidism does exist, it is uncommon, and most children will need to continue on thyroxine through adulthood. The dose will need to be increased to match their growth, but by the time adult life is reached the dose usually remains stable with the need for only an occasional blood test.
