Hello I am Dr. Tanvi diabetes and thyroid (endocrinologist) specialist from mumbai. Reading about your blood sugar values I feel they are very high. And such levels can be dangerous. You definitely have big scope of improving your blood sugar. You need to modify your treatment plan for better sugar control. Uncontrolled blood sugar can be more dangerous and are associated with early complications. If you wish you can consult with me regarding further management with your complete medical history and latest blood reports in private consultation.

Dear lybrate-user, Since you are are having a renal problem it is inadvisable to take any pain medication 1 First we have to identify the cause of the foot pain and also the site of the pain. Mostly foot pain os die to Plantar fasciitis. 2 You can take a x-ray of the foot to rule out any calcaneal spur or bony problem 3 Do a routine ESR nad Vitamin D3 levels also 4 If it is due to Plantar fasciitis local therapy with ultra sound ,contrast bath and footwear modification can be of help 5 Even local injections can be tried 6 Some centres do a foot scan to assess the cause of pain, pressure points sensitive areas and prescribe footwear accordingly 7 Even reduçong your weight by 2 to 3 kg can relieve the pain if you are overweight.

Diabetes occurs because of lack of insulin. Hence that's the only treatment. You cannot stop that or replace it.

I have diabetes from many years recently in my legs their is swelling from one week and hb level is 7.7 but now some injections taken and thereafter hb level is 8.7 . So my question is that is their any problem in liver .

Hello, with hb being so low there is a possibility swelling in the lower limbs. Very low hemoglobin can lead to multiple problems. It is essential to raise the level to at least 12 g/100 ml. 8.7 g is still very low. It does not suggest problem with the liver, but iron deficiency anemia. You will have find out the reason why anemia of such severity has occurred. Usual reasons are inadequate food intake, very low iron content in food taken daily, or some bleeding occurring which may have gone unnoticed, like occult blood loss through stools. Sometimes bleedin peptic ulcers also lead to such a condition. There may be hook worm infestation etc. So you may have to get some investigations done to see why such low hemoglobin has occurred. Thanks.

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Have you been trying to have kids for a long time? Is inability and delay giving you sleepless nights?  It is important to know that Stress alone is a major factor for infertility.

Can Stress Have an Effect on Your Fertility?

If your mind and body is under stress your body is signaled to release a hormone - Adrenalin. This is a stress relieving hormone and gives your body the rush to face the stress. This hormone inhibits the utilization of the hormone Progesterone, which is essential for fertility. Also during stress Prolactin, another hormone, is relapsed which also interferes with infertility. Hence to conceive its essential that your anxiety levels are under control.

Chronic Stress also decreases libido:

Chronic stress may cause lack of libido as well as a decrease in general fertility. This has become such a common issue that they have created a name for it Stress Induced Reproductive Dysfunction. These facts are very important to consider if you have been trying to conceive with no results. It also shows that stress relief should be a part of every couple's conception plan even if they are going through IVF.

Ways to reduce stress & improve fertility:

If you are having difficulty to conceive, it's imperative that you get fertility tests done and also evaluate your life. Look out for the stress points that may be hindering a relationship. Remember defeating the stress may be the solution to your worries.

  • Reduce stress in your life: The issues in your life may be work or result related. You need to learn to balance your personal and professional life. The sooner you do it the better; after all you are preparing yourself to welcome a new born in your life.

  • Change your reactions: Get a hang of the situation and react accordingly. Over reaction to a situation can harm your body and mind. Stop bothering so much about the future.

  • Let few things be the way they are: Stop getting bothered about people. Remember by nature everything will fall in place. Let few things be the way they are.

  • Make it your habit to reduce stress: Call it an obsession or a practice, train your mind to choose options where there is less stress.

  • Sleep well: A good rest is essential for a healthy mind and body. Meditate, do yoga or seek counseling. Go for facials if it sooths you.

Please note that if your fertility reports are normal, then it's just a matter of time. Give you, your partner and your body time. There are certain medical complications or disorders that can also be responsible for infertility. Be calm and composed so that you are able to face the rough waters clearly with your partner.

I have thyroid. I take thyronorm 75 regularly. Can thyroid be cured with homeopathy or any other treatment?
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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.
