Hi, My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests. Following are some results for the test haemoglobin- 10.3, lymphocytes - 18%, Dengue and malaria tests are negative, platelets count is 80 thousand that usually remains in this range only. He is diabetic and when he was diagnosed with low platelets, doctor said that he is having thrombocytopenia. Now I am getting worried for my dad. Kindly provide me the best direction for further investigation as now I am thinking that the present doctor who is checking up my dad doesn't seem me convincing. Thanks.

Hi,
My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests...
Give him Papaya leaves juice 2 spoons daily in morning for 5 days for increasing platelet counts. And start giving him naturamore male powder with milk for 2 months. Morning and evening. This will make him energetic, and remove the fever of what-so-ever it may be. And ask him to drink plenty of water 3-4 liters in 24 hours. He will be absolutely fine and will start feeling good with 2 days. By that time, just try to manage fever, it will also subside. Don't worry. :) Still if you have any more queries, then please let me know. I will help you out. Take care. :)

What are the symptoms of sugar if a person suffering from this disease and ealear prevention from it.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of sugar if a person suffering from this disease and ealear prevention from it.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes you have to take regular medicine to keep your blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet.

My tsh level is 2.5 and its normal but my weight is not decreasing even after diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, yes you are over weight with a bmi of 25.95 kgs /m2. With well controlled hypothyroidism, you should be able to reduce the weight. You need to increase the effort both in terms of reduced dietary intake and increased physical effort. It is better if you join a gym and do workout under the guidance of a professional trainer. Plus your diet should provide exact calories based on ideal body weight (70 kgs); but to achieve a bmi of 23 kgs weight has to be down to 67 kgs. So 67 x 30 calories = 2000 calories. If you keep these things in mind and plan your workouts and food intake there is a possibility of meeting the targets. Thanks.

I have thyroid and overweight. Could you please guide me what I should avoid in food?

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
I have thyroid and overweight. Could you please guide me what I should avoid in food?
Am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps.

I am suffering from diabetes type 2. How to control diabetes. Which fruits are suitable in diabetes.
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control t2 dm you have to start treatment with proper drugs like either oral anti diabetics or insulin or both together depending upon severity of the sugar levels. With out proper modern drugs there is no way of controlling diabetes. Along with drug treatment strict diet control and regular exercise are equally important. Daily at least 1 hour of exercise is needed. It helps in burning extra glucose, reduce insulin resistance and improve insulin action as well as gives a feeling of well being. Fruits to be consumed include water melon, orange, sweet lime, pomegrarnate, apple, pear, papaya and guava.

May I know what medication you are taking for controlling diabetes? also please inform me your fasting and pp blood sugar level and hba1c level. These are required to let me know if diabetes is under check. Your data suggests you are a thin person, which is good, but have been like this or have you lost weight of late? I am awaiting your details.

I am having diabetes.Please do help me.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
Bitter gourd, also known as bitter melon, can be helpful for controlling diabetes due to its blood glucose lowering effects. It tends to influence the glucose metabolism all over your body rather than a particular organ or tissue. It helps increase pancreatic insulin secretion and prevents insulin resistance. Thus, bitter gourd is beneficial for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. However, it cannot be used to entirely replace insulin treatment? drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months? also, you can include one dish made of bitter gourd daily in your diet. Any queries inform me.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you need to improve the present treatment. There is a need for additional drugs. So it is better if you come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp blood glucose & hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Then I will be able to guide specifically. To achieve good control fasting sugar should be near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Thanks.
