I have been taking Thyronorm 25 mcg for About 3 months, last test was done in April with TSH 10, Can I look for Homeopathy treatment for thyroid, Understand that I need to take Thyronorm for lifetime. Please let me know can homeopathy Help me, Also I am very much underweight, 43 kgs, 34 years old height 5.2' Please suggest a good diet keeping in mind the Thyroid issue.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. As you are aware hypothyroidism being a hormone deficiency state, treatment with thyroxine has to go on for lifetime. The condition is very easy to treat if one takes correct dose of levothyroxine regularly. No other supportive treatment is required. Homeopathy to my knowledge, has absolutely no role to play. But if you want to take it then choice is yours. As regards being under weight, you may have to increase the dietary intake of all the three types of foods -carbs, fat and proteins. For hypothyroidism you have to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. All other foods are fine. You consider taking whey protein supplements in addition to your regular diet. Plus when on treatment with thyroxine TSH should be maintained < 3 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of that condition. So you need to increase the dose by 12.5 mcg per day. Then check TSH again after 6 weeks. Thanks.

Is Diabetes Curable?

Is Diabetes Curable?

More young people are detected with diabetes than aged people, nowadays. Stress of work, irregular lifestyle and uncontrolled eating are the reasons of diabetes. Diabetes is incurable. Repeat, diabetes is incurable. But, it can be kept under control. There is no cure for diabetes in any pathy. So stop visiting different pathy clinics, vaids, homeopathy clinics or any magic remedy centres to get cured.


To keep diabetes under control follow these simple tricks. 
1. Eat six times a day, eat little every time. 
2. Walk for 60 minutes every single day, rain or sun. 
3. Avoid or eat least possible rice, sweet, fried food, potatoes. 
4. Take drugs. 
5. Sleep early, sleep well. 
6. Avoid stress, relax, laugh, play, listen to music and enjoy picnics. 
7. Check your hba1c every 3 months and adjust your medication under the guidance of a good doctor.


Allopathy and Ayurveda both have very good medicines that will keep your sugar down. Ayurvedic drugs are free of side effects whereas allopathic drugs have to be constantly monitored for side effects. But in any case both the types of drugs are to be taken lifelong.


As long as sugar levels are under control, diabetics have nothing to fear about. They can lead a normal life, have good longevity, can enjoy all pleasures of life including sex, travel, sports. Restrictions on eatings can be compromised once in a while when sugar levels are under control.


Quarterly check-ups of sugar and general health check up once in two years will ensure that life is going well for you.

Type 1 Diabetes Causes - What Leads To The Development Of Type-1 Diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes Causes - What Leads To The Development Of Type-1 Diabetes?

What is Type-1 Diabetes?

Type-1 Diabetes, also known as Diabetes Mellitus type-1, is a condition which is characterised by the lack of sufficient amount of insulin in the body. This is a chronic condition and cannot be cured. The insufficient amount of insulin in the blood results in the spike in blood sugar levels, which in turn, can damage various organs in the body. However, with proper therapy and treatment, it can be controlled and the quality of life can be improved for the patient.

The tell-tale signs and symptoms of this type of diabetes are the frequent urges to urinate, increase in appetite, increased thirst, and rapid loss of weight. It is most commonly diagnosed in children or young adults and thus, it was previously known as juvenile diabetes.

Glucose and other types of sugars are essential for the body cells to absorb energy. The glucose that is present in the blood is taken up with the help of insulin and utilised for energy. The lack of this hormone renders the glucose useless as it is not being able to enter the body cells. This is precisely type-1 diabetes.

What Causes It?

The cause of type-1 diabetes is not known entirely. Although, there are certain theories that explain the cause –

  1. Genetics: The chances of getting type-1 diabetes are increased in children if either of their parents suffers through from this disease. More than 50 genes are involved in diabetes type-1.

  2. Environmental factors: Environmental factors are also thought to play a role in type-1 diabetes.

  3. Viral infection: A theory suggests that viral infections are responsible for type-1 diabetes. According to this theory, the virus activates the auto-immune system of the body which in turn attacks the pancreatic beta cells along with the cells that are infected by the virus. Viruses like Epstein-Barr virus, Mumps virus, rubella virus etc. are considered to be responsible for the same.

How Is It Treated?

Many people with type-1 diabetes live long, healthy lives. The key to good health is to keep your blood sugar levels within the range your doctor gives you. You’ll need to check them often and adjust insulin, food, and activities to make that happen.

All people with type-1 diabetes must use insulin injections to control their blood sugar. Several types of insulin are available. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Gum infection in diabetics patients is common. To reduce it, first control your blood sugar levels. Brush twice a day with soft bristle brush n use a mouthwash. Do salt water gargle twice daily. Massage your gums with gumex gum paint.

Walking tends to cause more strain on the knees every time you step forward, while cycling keeps the knee intact and works only on movement. You could also try some strength training exercises along with the above.

Your sugar levels are definitely high. Is it fasting or post prandial? kindly inform the dosage of the medicines being taken. Please be on strict diabetic diet and go for regular one hour walk either in the morning or in the evening. Get your blood tesed for hba1c which gives you the previous three months average of your blood sugar. Only then other medications can be prescribed.
