Ways to Treat PCOS Infertility

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Ways to Treat PCOS Infertility
PCOS infertility is the most common cause of infertility today.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome also known as Polycystic Ovarian Disease manifests in multiple cysts covering the ovaries, filled with immature follicles (eggs) accompanied by hormonal abnormalities and irregularities in ovulation and menstruation.
While PCOS falls into a group of conditions which don’t have a cure as such, there are natural ways to manage this condition so you don’t experience any symptoms and can get pregnant if you choose to.
What to do?
1. Avoid coffee, alcohol, soft drinks, sugar and juices containing sugar, refined
carbs (white bread, biscuits, chocolate, lollies etc…).
2. Eat small protein rich meals every 3 hours to balance your blood sugar.
3. Exercise regularly – cardio and weights (the more muscles you have the
more fat you’ll burn).
4. Add cinnamon to your cooking. It has been found to improve insulin
sensitivity in women with PCOS.
5. Excess androgen production has been shown to favorably react to intake of
licorice so include some fresh licorice from an organic store.
6. Reduce stress with yoga, mediation, breathing exercises, 8 hours of sleep,
regular exercise, lavender, lemon balm and chamomile tea.
7. Take a good quality multivitamin and fish oil (make sure it’s been tested for
mercury and stabilized with vitamin E).
8. Eat more: adzuki beans, basil, cayenne, chestnut, chives, eggplant, garlic,
ginger, kohlrabi, leek, nutmeg, pepper, rice, rosemary, spearmint and
turmeric.

I am diabetic type 2 male person aged 73 years. I am on oral medication. My everyday dose is as follows. Morning empty stomach 1 tablet Glyclazide 80mg plus i tablet 500 mg merformine.

Last testing done 2 months back indicate HbA1c as 7.1 and fasting sugar level 112 and post meals as 143. I have one more problem the waistline is constantly going up. It measures 40 inches on date. My height is 5feet 5.5 inches and weight 77 Kgs. I have no extra flesh except at belly. My BP level is also well under control. Earlier my HbA1c was 6.9. I donot know why the belly fat is going up with my best care. Some people tell me it is because of Metformin which I am taking. Please advise what care i should take to reduce the belly fat. Further what care I can take to reduce my HbA1c reading. My creatine level of kidney is also at 1.3 the last limit.

I am pretty sure the people who tell you that your belly fat is because of metformin are either not doctors or self declared degree less doctors. Metformin is the basic medicine which helps to decrease the belly fat and BMI of a diabetic its a wonderful drug and you are taking minimal amount only which is moderate dose. Gliclazide may increase your belly fat as it is insulin secreting drugs and insulin is a anabolic hormone and puts weight on you. i suggest change your medication. You can easily increase metformin to a maximum of 2 grams in divided dose. For further consultation kindly come in private question section.

If so far you do not have diabetes already and not under treatment fasting 112 mg% after 10 hrs of overnight fasting it is a borderline impaired fasting glucose. You should do blood sugar 2 hours after consuming 75 gms of glucose more than 126 mg% upto 140 mg% it is impaired glucose tolerance. You can repeat these tests and above mentioned levels of 126 and 140 are prediabetic states hence diabetes can be prevented or postponed by measures like life style changes of reduction of weight, controlled sugar free diet and daily exercise.

Please check her sugars, creatinine, total proteins with albumin to find out the cause for the swelling. If everything is normal then probably a small dose of diuretic tablet might help.

Not taking medicine and doing business diabetes 110 lose weight 4 kg boils under eyes
Want to improve health.
Mr. Lybrate-user, blood glucose 110 mg, if fasting, then there is no diabetes. Following are the criteria to diagnose: 1) normal: fbs 70 to 110 mg, pp <140 mg / 100 ml & hba1c% <5.9. 2) pre-diabetes: fbs 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg & hba1c%<6.4. 3) diabetes: fbs! 26 mg and above, pp 200 mg and above, hba1c%6.5 and above. So based on your current fbs, pp levels and hba1c% you can decide whether you have diabetes. As regards improving health you need to take a healthy diet, exercise regularly foor over an hour daiky and maintain weight with in normal limit. Plus avoid alcohol and smoking. Thanks.

If a person has to take lifelong medicine for hypothyroidism, does the medicine have any side effects and what are they?

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), D Diab (UK)
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
If a person has to take lifelong medicine for hypothyroidism, does the medicine have any side effects and what are they?
Dear Madam, Thyroxine replacement medicine can have the usual gastrointestinal side effects like nausea, vomiting etc. But these are temporary and will settle down. Most of these tablets do not have any major side effects. There are lots of patients on these tablets without any major problems. But you need to get your thyroid function tests check periodically once every 3-6 months. If the tablet dose is high and if tests are not done and if the dose is not reduced then patient can become hyperthyroid where he will be having symptoms of weight loss, palpitations etc. Hope this has helped you Thank you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Even though you have asked for Ayurvedic treatment, I am answering the query. The reason is looking at your Fasting & Pp glucose levels it is clear that diabetes is totally uncontrolled. This is not good at any age, particularly at your age. Only real option for controlling diabetes is available only with modern medicines. So my suggestion is please stick to that, treatment can be improved with newer drugs or if need be Insulin may have to be used. Ideally to be in control fasting glucose has to be closer to 100 mg & PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Otherwise a number of long term complications related to diabetes will start manifesting. In other medical practices unfortunately there are really no remedies to control diabetes, even though tall claims are made by them. Still you want to go for ayurvedic treatment then choice is entirely yours. Thanks.

There is no medicine without side effects. Won't be able to suggest regarding Shilajeet as its Ayurvedic medicine. Control your blood sugar well. Consult and endocrinologist. Exercise daily. Have a balanced diet. If still unable to gain erection and have intercourse get back.
