My periods are not regular. There is always a gap of 2-3 months. I checked for thyroid but its normal. What should I do?
It depends on the underlying cause of the irregular periods - if you are a teen irregular cycles are normal, but if you are an adult with irregular periods talk to your doctor about investigating the cause and different treatment options. You can also help regulate your hormones yourself by staying healthy, using herbal treatments like chaste tree or evening primrose oil, or use lunaception to regulate ovulation. Hormonal birth control like the pill does not regulate periods - it does completely the opposite as the pill works by suppressing the menstrual cycles so you no longer ovulate and thus you no longer menstruate - the bleeding women get while on the pill is withdrawal bleeding caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. Once you come off the pill your periods can be irregular for up to a year, and as the original cause of the irregular periods was not dealt with this problem may return again so leaving you with irregular periods for even longer. Consult a homeopath and get treated he will restore your periods and also you will not have any sideeffects either.

thyroid can be control by medicines. 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.

5 Reasons You Will See Blood in Urine

5 Reasons You Will See Blood in Urine

5 Reasons You Will See Blood in Urine

The condition in which blood appears in the urine is known as hematuria. The loss of blood in this condition could be gross or microscopic depending on the cause of the condition. There are several causes why blood may appear in the urine. Whatever the cause may be, hematuria is mostly indicative of a serious medical condition.

Here are 5 reasons that cause blood to appear in the urine.

1.Infection

Infections like urethritis, pyelonephritis, cystitis or infection in any other body organ along the urinary tract is one of the most common causes of hematuria. Such bacterial infection in the urethra can also infect the kidneys and the urinary bladder. It results in the urge to urinate frequently and also causes blood to appear in the urine.

2. Kidney stones and bladder stones

Another reason that can cause blood to appear in the urine is the presence of stones in the kidney or bladder. These stones are crystallized minerals that are formed in the kidney or the bladder but fail to pass through the urinary tract. They cause blockage and pain and result in hematuria.

3. An enlarged prostate

An enlarged prostate is a common cause of appearance of blood in the urine in men who are in their middle ages or older. Enlargement of the prostate gland causes the urethra to be compressed. This prevents the urethra from getting fully emptied while urination.

4. Polycystic Kidney Disease

PKD is a kidney disorder in which cysts filled with fluid form in the kidneys and impair the kidneys, causing them to fail entirely at times. It is an inherited disease and causes blood to appear in the urine.

In children who are between 6-10 years of age, kidney disorder after streptococcal glomerulonephritis can be a possible cause of hematuria.

5. Cancer

A cancerous kidney, bladder or prostate gland can also cause blood to appear in the urine. It is another major cause of hematuria but usually occurs in older patients.

I had total thyroidectomy due to Thyroid cancer Parathyroids were preserved, before RAI Calcium was 10.2. At the time of discharge from hospital calcium was 8.3. But now my Calcium level dropped to 7.2 post RAI. My recent Albumin level is normal. But I am Asymptomatic. What's causing my Calcium level to drop now? Using calcium supplement for longer periods is not safe is it true? What blood test should I appear for to confirm the cause of low calcium? Please suggest blood test.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Post thyroidectomy and preserving of parathyroid glands, there is a possibility of transient hypocalcimia for about 4 to 6 weeks or a bit longer. Usually by 3 to 4 months the parathyroid gland starts functioning fully. So now you will have to take additional supplement of calcium to reduce or overcome the deficiency. Thanks.

I am 23 year old, and have very bad asthma problem. Tried many sort of treatment but switched again back to inhalers. Was having problem of eczema & childhood which was treated through allopathic treatment at that time I didn't had asthma problem. But later after shifting to kerala my asthma problem started & used to take inhalers. Wen I was 17 I went for Ayurveda treatment with so much of restricted time table for certain food items for 2 year & I got better at initial stage I got all my allergy on my skin which so hard but doctor was saying thats to get cured with it. & only if I cure the inner allergy I would get better of asthma. I was so thin at that time & we I started curing asthma I also had put on my weight n was happy to get changed with better immunity. But suddenly I got a throat infection which really was under treated n he strictly advised not to take antibiotics which made it return frequently n I had developed a swelling on my leg n wen I went through a blood test I got aso titre so high. Which made me discontinue his treatment n I started taking pencillin400 n reduced d doses n now cured it completely but my asthma had returned severely. Then another blood test developed d problem of hypothyroidism. I started taking thyrox 150 n now d dose of 50. For this after 2 yrs I consulted a homeo doctor which was a nightmare for me as he said asthma is linked with thyroid problem n asked if I had any skin problem I said before I had he then prescribed some medicines n wid in a few days I got a bad itching on my fingers ful flare ups whole over my body oozing n weeping legs n hands I cant even sleep at night due to itching n that doctor was sounding angrily wen I saying my problem. N after 6 months also I dint cured n again went for an allopathic dermatologist n cured it. I just want to know if thyroid n asthma problem is linked n is it compulsory dat if I take treatment for asthma in Ayurveda or homeopathy I will have to face a tough time for my skin. Please doctors do reply. I really want to take your advice n go a head for treatment. Can hypothyroidism can b cured. N asthma also with out a flare ups n allergy break out?

Hello- First of all you have to reduce your weight and improve your blood supply by regular exercising, making your schedule active and diet control. Avoid rice, curd, potatoes in meals, consume red meat, limit your sweet intake. You can start Chandraprabha vati post meals. It is a good ayurvedic medicine which can improve your sexual performance, will reduce your weight and can also solve your breathing problems too.

I am 29 years old male I have gone through thyroid test and my report is as follows T3- 118 T4 - 6.9 TSH-8.72 should I take some medicine for increased TSH.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your TSH level is high. It falls in the sub-clinical hypothyroidism. In this condition usually not treated. Only when TSH goes above 10 mU/L But if a person has troublesome symptoms even when TSH is lower than 10 mU/L, then treatment is initiated. So please tell me the reasons why you were advised for getting the thyroid test. Thanks.

Why is onion avoided in thyroid problem? I am having thyroid 6.5 t3. Kindly suggest what foods to be taken and what to avoid? Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In hypothyroidism following foods, vegetables are supposed to be avoided: Soy beans, soy containing products. Vegetables to be avoided or taken very sparingly include cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, spinach, radish & mustard. Plus peanuts and coffee. However, most important is to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Others (mentioned above) can be taken in limited quantity. These foods are supposed to be affecting thyroxine action. Thanks One should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. It is important to know what is TSH value and not T3. Because in hypothyroidism there is T4 deficiency leading to increase in TSH value above 10 mU/L.Thanks.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism since last 8 years my thyronorm intake has raised to 200 mg which initially was 25 mg. I feel very low on energy. Other issue's of low testosterone less than 250.

It is highly worrying that you r using such a high dose of medicine to treat hypothyroidism. But you were supposed to sens your reports of t3, t4 n tsh atleast 4-5 reports to clearly under stand your case. However I suggest you to take kaanchnaar guggulu n arogya vardhini vati 02 tablets each thrice daily with luke warm water for one month. Thereafter two times daily for next two months before getting next t3, t4 n tsh examined. I hope dependacy on thyronorm may be finished to some extent.

Treated thyroid problem is not responsible for weight gain. Diet and exercise will be of great benefit rather than blaming on thyroid.

Hello Doc! So there are a lot of problems that I am facing at the moment. I’ll move ahead step by step. 1.Delayed period- I am 8 days late on my period, though I am not sexually active. 2.On and off anxiety and pain in different parts of body, eg: wrist, thighs knees and sometimes swelling in hands & feet. 3.Puffiness under eyes & face. 4.I feel tired and lethargic many times even if I have taken proper rest. My Background: I have a desk job, I do not exercise regularly. 10-15 minutes of walk is all that I do. I have normal diet, but I eat out 2-3 days every week. I sleep late at night & sometimes I have to force myself to sleep at night. I have been suggested that I may have high thyroid, for which I got my complete blood and urine test done. I am attaching my reports. Please take a look & suggest what is causing all this? Is it anything serious? Do I need to take medications or just a healthy life style could mend it. Please give me a detailed answer.
