You also seem to have thyroid problems for which you are taking medications. It's good that you stopped drinking. I would suggest you to consult your endocrinologist to revise your thyroxine doses according to your most recent reports. Start exercising and get a diet plan from a dietician to help in weight loss. Always remember it's not magical! since you didnot gain overnight you won't lose weight overnight either. Good luck and take care.

While you monitor the sugar levels

Mr K K Sharma, As regards the so called new drug combination marketed containing some herbal remedies, I really do not know how effective it can be in controlling diabetes in human beings. The reason is that Tab BGR 34 is only tried in lab mice. In that study also it was found to give 67% success rate which is like a placebo. No human studies are done, so it is difficult to recommend it for diabetes treatment. So I will not be able to recommend it.

Hello, it's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems including irregular menses are directly related to overweight! read the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: management: 1: drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: enjoy your favorite foods. 4: have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous). Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. 6: eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: don't skip meals. When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. Medication for obesity: start taking schwabe's phytolacca berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best!

What are the symptoms of thyroid and how to cure it and how to reduce the body weight.

What are the symptoms of thyroid and how to cure it and how to reduce the body weight.
Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid is the normal gland in all of us. It produces hormone thyroxine, essential for brain development and functioning and also involved in various vital metabolic functions. Lack or absence of that hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. So which are you asking is difficult to know. Common is hypothyroidism. This causes weight increase, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, menstrual irregularities in women, dry skin and dry hair and hair fall, early fatigue and tiredness, anxiety and depression. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets for life time. There is no cure.

As you are having hypothyroid problem, that causes some times this allergic rash, dryness of skin etc. But here, you didnt mention the duration since how long its there and how often you are getting, etc. So, just you try nux. Vomica 200 weekly thrice[6-8 pills/dose] continue for 2 wks, then let me kmow for further followup.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Drug addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.
