Mr. Lybrate-user, your glucose level is really good, it should remain at that level so that no complications develop related to diabetes. As regards taking honey with lemon juice, if the quantity small then no real difficulty at all. But large quantity is not advisable.

I am  hypothyroid patient, I am taking thyroxine 200 now. Is there any side effect to take this medicine to me?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you feeling fine with that dose and if tsh levels are within normal (desired) limit, then there is absolutely no problem. Thyroxine is actually similar to the natural hormone produced by thyroid gland. So most often it is very well tolerated. Some times side effects may be seen, early in treatment. But majority of patients do not experience any problems. Thanks.

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.

The benefits of regular physical activity are: Lower blood glucose levels Better response to insulin Strengthened heart activity Improved blood circulation Lowered cholesterol Improved physical fitness Feeling better People of all ages should include a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity of moderate intensity on most, if not all, days of the week. A regimen of physical activity must be planned judiciously when diabetes complications are present. How to get started Look for an activity that you enjoy. Make sure it's right for your current level of fitness. Walking may be a good way to get started. It is convenient and low in cost. All you need to get started are cotton socks and a pair of supportive shoes that fit well. What will a complete exercise plan look like Flexibility - stretch before you exercise. Resistance Training - this includes lifting light weights to build calorie-burning muscle mass. Aerobic activity - walking, dancing, swimming or biking to burn calories and reduce heart risk. How to keep going Make walking or your other exercise activities part of your daily routine. Finding someone to walk or exercise with can help make your workout more enjoyable. When exercise is enjoyable and social, it is its own reward. This may help you stay motivated. Know that everyone's exercise plans lapse occasionally. Instead of being discouraged, use this time as an opportunity of review your goals. Try to recommit as soon as possible to an enjoyable and healthy level of activity. Calories Burned During Common Activies Activity Cal/Min Cal/Hr Housecleaning, Child care, Bowling, Walking {<3 mph} 3-4 180-240 Walking {4mph}, Golf {pulling cart}, Cycling {6mph}, dancing {general}, Table Tennis 4-5 240-300 Cycling {8mph}, Tennis {doulbes}, Golf {carring clubs}, Aerobics {lowimpact}, Badminton {general}, Gardening 5-6 300-360 Cycling {10mph}, Dancing {fast}, Swimming {light}, Basketball {general} 6-7 360-420 Cycling {11mph}, Water Skiing, Tennis {singles}, Basketball {general} 7-8 420-480 Jogging {5mph}, Cycling {12mph}, Aerobics {high impact}, Football {general}, Walking {upstairs}, Swimming {moderate} 8-10 480-600 Running {5 1/2mph}, Cycling {13mph}, Rope jumping 10-11 600-660 Running {6mph}, Karate, Judo, Swimming {vigorous} 11 or more 660 or more Remember to check with your healthcare team before beginning an exercise routine, {1 mile=1.60934 km} Staying safe Check with your doctor before beginning to exercise. Start slowly. Five or ten minutes a day is a good beginning if you have been very inactive. Wear comfortable, supportive shoes and cotton socks. Check your feet after exercise for any signs of poor fit or injury. Carry a diabetes identification card. Check your blood sugar before and after exercise. This is especially important for anyone who takes insulin, a sulfonylurea or a meglitinide. These medicines may create risk for low blood sugar. Carry something to eat that contains glucose. Use it to prevent or treat low blood sugar if needed. Stretch and warm up at the beginning of your activity. This helps prevent injuries. Drink more liquids that contain no calories, like water, when exercising. If you have leg or chest pains during exercise, stop exercising and call your doctor. Avoid exercising if your fasting blood sugar is above 300 mg/dL (16.7 mmol/L) or under 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L).

Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Thyroid Disorder and Its Cure With Homoeopathy

Thyroid disease:

In most cases where the thyroid is dysfunctional, symptoms arise relating to the imbalance of the thyroid hormones. Conventional medicine generally treats people with synthroid, or its generic equivalent, which is a preparation of t4, one of the two primary thyroid hormones. Some people do not respond well to synthroid and need additional supplementation with t3, the cellular active thyroid hormone. In spite of adjustments made by doctors to some patient’s hormone supplementation, unwanted symptoms may still be present affecting the patient’s lifestyle and overall health. Homeopathic remedies are useful on their own and in conjunction with conventional medicines in relieving these symptoms. Always consult your physician and an experienced homeopath for treatment for any thyroid disorders, including autoimmune thyroid diseases such as graves and hashimoto’s disease.


 

Iodum:

The homeopathic remedy iodum is indicated for patients experiencing hyperthyroidism, according to Dr. William boericke, in the&nbsp;materia medica and repertory. The person may feel very hot, agitated, and shaky with trembling hands and heart palpitations. There may be an increased appetite, with a desire to eat all day long, resulting in obesity; however, the individual may also have an increased metabolism and not be able to gain weight. Given in controlled doses and the correct potency, iodum may help regulate the thyroid and the pituitary gland, the source of thyroid stimulating hormone.


 

Fucus vesicelosus:

Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, helps thyroid conditions where there is an under active thyroid with slow metabolism, according to the boericke. The remedy has the power to stimulate the thyroid and pituitary gland, helping to adjust the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone, and boost metabolic processes. When used correctly, this powerful remedy offers relief from many thyroid conditions and successfully reduces a myriad of symptoms, such as promoting weight loss, relieving sluggishness and fatigue, alleviating headaches, muscle pain and joint discomfort, and overcome many other unwanted symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.


 

Additionally, this remedy also has the ability to suppress an overactive thyroid when given in higher potencies and larger doses. Fucus vesicelosus should never be self-administered. It should only be used under the supervision of an experienced homeopath that can monitor your case closely. Never adjust your dose or change the potency of the remedy without first consulting your practitioner. Dietary kelp is contraindicated while taking homeopathic fucus vesicelosus.


 

Kali carbonicum

Kali carbonicum is indicated for individuals who suffer from a slow metabolism, often seen in hypothyroidism. The remedy may relieve symptoms of coldness and chilliness, pain in the back, chronic constipation, indigestion, flatulence, belching and a sour taste in the mouth. The person needing this remedy may be aggravated in general by drinking icy-cold drinks, which can produce nausea and vomiting. Patients experiencing chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, obesity, fatigue and who are hypothyroid are excellent candidates for this remedy.


 

Warning

Never treat yourself for thyroid problems. Any form of thyroid disease is complex and treatment needs to be supervised by an experienced health practitioner.


 

So consult the doctor privately.

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. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Benefits of Artificial Insemination

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Benefits of Artificial Insemination

There are many reasons why the problem of infertility occurs in many humans. Few of the main reasons of this are the inability of male partner to produce sperms and inability of the fertilized egg to get rooted in the uterus. It is in such conditions that the procedure of artificial insemination is carried out to infuse the sperm into the uterus of the female.

Steps Involved in Artificial Insemination-

There are certain steps that need to be followed before you get pregnant if you are planning on artificial insemination, and that would be of great use in providing an economically safe pregnancy. Artificial insemination is a technique that is of great use to couples who cannot get pregnant. The procedure is simple, but it has its own side-effects. It is a commonly used procedure and which is less expensive than other treatment options for infertility. The success rate of this procedure is about 86%, and a couple needs to make a few attempts to get pregnant.

Need for Artificial Insemination-

The effectiveness of the artificial insemination process plays a vital role for the women having fertility issues, especially while selecting the treatment. Many couples prefer the procedure of Intrauterine Insemination when fertility medicines do not work effectively. The procedure of artificial insemination which is a reproduction technique comprises of introducing the semen into the vagina, uterus, or cervix of a woman without sexual intercourse.

The artificial insemination procedure is made use not only in humans but even for breeding in animals. Sometimes the procedure is done if a woman has a condition called endometriosis or in other words, abnormality in her reproductive organs. The method is also suggested by the Doctors when the real reason for infertility cannot be identified.

Why Artificial Insemination?

The procedure is a great benefit for a woman who is single and desires to have children. The best part is that during the artificial insemination, the sperm used during the treatment is tested for any genetic disorder. This way, it reduces the chance of any disorder being transmitted to the child from a parent. The procedure is much cheaper than natural reproduction, and the main benefit of artificial insemination is that desirable characteristics of the parent are passed on quickly to the child.

Overall, the benefits of this procedure are that it is very effective and prevents any genetic disorder in the child, and the cost of the procedure is comparatively lesser.
