Hello Sir, I have been suffering from severe ache in left heel. I couldn't walk for a few steps when I get out from bed in the morning. I have been taking pain killers and applying volini, hot and cold packs. But the ache is aggravating rather than diminishing. I do suspect either Plantar or Heel spur. please guide me further. Does diabetes have such symptoms only in one leg?

Hello Sir, I have been suffering from severe ache in left heel. I couldn't walk for a few steps when I get out from b...
Try few home remedies for heel pain rest - avoid running or standing for long periods, or walking on hard surfaces. Avoid activities that may stress the heels. Ice - place an ice-pack on the affected area for about 15 minutes. Do not place bare ice directly onto skin. Footwear - proper-fitting shoes that provide good support are crucial. Athletes should be particularly fussy about the shoes they use when practicing or competing - sports shoes need to be replaced at specific intervals (ask your trainer). Foot supports - wedges and heel cups can help relieve symptoms. If these doesn't help please see a physiotherapist who can teach you exercises which stretch the plantar fascia and achilles tendon, as well as strengthening the lower leg muscles, resulting in better stabilization of the ankle and heel. You may also be taught how to apply athletic taping, which gives the bottom of the foot better support. Prevention of heel pain involves reducing the stress on that part of the body. Tips include: barefeet - when on hard ground make sure you are wearing shoes. Bodyweight - if you are overweight there is more stress on the heels when you walk or run. Try to lose weight. Footwear - footwear that has material which can absorb some of the stress placed on the heel may help protect it. Examples include heel pads. Make sure your shoes fit properly and do not have worn down heels or soles. If you notice a link between a particular pair of shoes and heel pain, stop wearing them. Rest - if you are especially susceptible to heel pain, try to spend more time resting and less time on your feet. It is best to discuss this point with a specialized health care professional. Sports - warm up properly before engaging in activities that may place lots of stress on the heels. Make sure you have proper sports shoes for your task. Best wishes.

Hello, excess hunger is a symptom of diabetes along with excess urination and excess thirst. Better get your thyroid test done as well as blood sugar. Those resuls will give clear idea. Thanks.

In hypothyroidism hair fall is a common occurrence. It is usually the last symptom to be corrected after hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units, then it is considered as good control. So please check tsh levels and see that those are brought to the expected value. Gout and palpitations are unconnected to hypothyroidism.

The tsh values are low because she is taking thyronorm 25 mcg, daily, and this is quite a low dose, when tsh is low t3 & t4 will be normal. Thyronorm is also t4 only. So please do not think of reducing the dosage. This has to continue. Only thing is keep checking tsh levels once 3 - 4 months.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is the blood which carries glucose to all the tissues and cells, so glucose has to be there in it. Our brain needs 5 grams of glucose every minute, so blood has to carry it there, otherwise how will it reach? all the tissues need glucose for producing energy, so blood ahs to carry it and supply. If not then a person feels week. That is what happens in hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level). If bllod sugar goes below 50 mg /100 ml, some persons will feel giddy and further lower levels will cause unconsciousness.

never stopped medicines of thyroid.pl. take tab. thyroxine. pl. tell your reports. after reports we advice dose of thyroxine. 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. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

Lybrate-user it will be advisable if you can revert with the list of medicines, your last hba1c levels. You have to understand that to keep diabetes under control regular exercise, diet modification and proper medication is key to treatment. There is some element of genetic transfer of this but still with a good life style we can control this.

My friend. Each of these levels in blood has immense long term impact on your system. And if the blood reports are correct, then you definitely need medications. If you can not control the level of these components in your blood but you are gonna have serious complications in later life. My general advice would be, firstly stop smoking and drinking immediately if you have any of these addictions. Reduce junk food and fatty food to a minimum. Avoid meat, especially mutton. Along with these you also need quite a few medications. Consult with your doctor or feel free to consult me privately via lybrate so that I i can prescribe you the medications after thorough assessment of your condition. Will be happy to help.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I suppose that most of your issues can be ascribed to you being a diabetic and thus can be resolved by discussion with an endocrinologist / general physician who is managing your diabetes. If you have back pain with radiation to legs with associated symptoms than we can think of spine as a cause of your symptoms and then you may get in touch with me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
