Thyroid problem & Homeopathy:

Thyroid is an Endocrinal Gland that secrets Thyroid Hormones which balances the Metabolism.When the secretions altered, the depending on the lower r Higher levels, there will be Either Hypothyroidism r HyperThyroidism. In Hyperthyroidism, there will be symptoms like loss of Wt, thinning, Anxiety, increased Heart beat{Palpitation}, Tremors, Puffiness round Eyes, Excessive Sweat, Moon Face, Enlargement of External throat(Enlarged Glandular swelling called as GOITRE) in severe condition, Stare look, Mentally confusion, Dlirium etc are the main significant symptoms of Hyper thyroidism.
In Hypothyroidism, symptoms r quite altered. Like here there will be More Gain in weight, Dyspnoea, Dryness of Skin,increased sensitivity to Weather changes, mostly Intolerance of Cold,Irritability, mood swings, Disinterested in work, sleepy, Weakness etc r the Symptoms for Hypothyroidism.
But Hairloss, Unwanted hair Growth, Irregular periods, Delay in Menarche, Miscarriages or Infertility are common in both.
The reasons for Thyroid Disturbances are , Excessive r less consumption of Iodine in Diet, Excessive Intake may b either because of other medications, which indirectly contains more iodine content or, induces Gland for more harmonal secretions,Hormonal Imbalance because of lack of co-ordination b/w Hypothalamus, Pituitary gland{which is another endocrinal gland, which indirectly controls the Thyroid},Excessive smoking,any Viral illness,Chronic Disorders, Any other medications, Improper intake of Diet, Hereditary, genetical anomalies are the main reasons for this Irregularity.
Mostly it is common in women, the age of menopause, @ the age /after of Menarche or in pregnancy time, due to the natural hormonal imbalance.If its physiological, it will be normal automatically after some times, but if its related to any other pathology, then there should be medication help needed, based on various checkups, like blood test, USG etc.
Some times, it could b suspected in the neonatal , childhood period also, based on the symptoms Mental retardation, Stunted growth, Obesity, Amenorrhoea or early puberty,Lower IQ etc. Then also, we can go for Thyroid profile test along with other Growth hormonal Checkup , to explore the diagnosis.
Right Time Diagnosis, Regular Medical Checkup,Proper T/t will help to get cured gradually.
But If ignored,neglected,then the C/o will lead to other complications, even cancer also.
In Homeopathy,Medicines like Thyroidinum, Iodum, Bromium, Calcarea carb, Calc. Iod, Lyco, Nux.Vom, Nat. Mur, sepia, Lapis alba etc all will help in balancing the harmonal secretion, if taken according to their symptom similarity, individualbasis, as per Expert?s Guidance.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

My mother age was 45 and she is an diabetes and bp too. Is there any problem occur in her sex life. My father was refuses her in participating sex. When she got diabetes. Please reply me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes is not a problem in having sex. What are the medicines she is taking, I can help her, it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Mr Faisal, Diabetes mellitus, generally does not produce any symptoms, that is why many people do not come to know that they have a problem. However, when disease develops fully it may cause excess urination. excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained tiredness, weight loss. Initiation of proper treatment invariably corrects all the symptoms. To know whether one has diabetes is to check blood sugar levels periodically, once in 6 months to one year. Particularly if parents have T2 DM, then all the children must do a periodic check up.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes if not well controlled almost always causes frozen shoulder as a complication. Primary need therefore is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Problem of loose motion may or may not be linked to diabetes. Sometimes gastrointestinal problems may be seen in diabetes. Suggestions or advise can be given only if all the necessary details are made available including FBS, PP HbA1c%, dietary habits, extent of exercise, current medications with dosage. Thanks.

Hello, Diabetes means high blood sugar. So if you mother is having low blood sugar, that means she has been started on some oral tablets or insulin that could be reducing the blood sugar to quite low levels. Also vomitings and lack of appetite can be due to medication that has been started. Please consult your diabetologist so that he can alter the medication dose. Hope this has helped you Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user diabetes is not cureable but can be easily controlled. Diet management and exercise are corner stones if treatment followed by oral drugs and insulin alone or in combination with oral drugs. You have. Mentioned the dtugs and dose being taken. If you have reduced your weight by diet and exercise and the dose being taken was very small only in that case you can reduce or stop medicines under physicians supervision. Ideally you should never stop medicines unless adviced. In few days your sugar will rise and consult your physician.
