If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

I am 41 years of age. Recently I am getting blood glucose. Initially it was 130 to 140 fasting but now it is in the range of 200 to 300. I do not want to start medicine because I can not swallow them. I am on a heavier side about 100 kgs. But i am doing regular exercise. Somebody suggested me to use BGR-34. Last two days I am using that. Should I continue this? What else should I do naturally to control my diabetes?

Sir/mam am 41 year old female am suffering from thyroid and palpitation before sleeping .Can I get a solution?

I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Homeopathy in Thyroid: A Wise Choice

Thyroid is one among the many glands in the endocrine system, whose secreted hormones regulate and maintain various metabolic activities. Thyroid problem, in generic terms, refers to a situation where there is an abnormal secretion of the thyroid hormone. The secretion can either be abundant, causing what is known as hyperthyroidism, or insufficient which, in turn is known as hypothyroidism. Both of these conditions are detrimental to health affecting not only your body weight but also the growth of bones and hair. Though different branches of medicines are constantly dabbling with this problem, Homeopathy is the most preferred choice.

Some of the reasons for it are:

  1. Treats severe sweating, problems in menstruation and constipation: One of the most important advantages of Homeopathy medicines is that each one of them is equipped to treat a host of ailments. The condition, hypothyroidism is symptomatic of excessive sweating on the head, constipation and problems in menstruating in women. All of these can be cured by the intake of Calcarea Carbonica.
  2. Cures paleness of skin, tendencies of fainting and hair fall: This is another characteristic of hypothyroidism, wherein you suffer from pale, yellow skin and are unable to bear extreme cold temperatures due to the lack of vitality and body heat.  At the same time, women in their menopause tend to suffer from excessive hair fall. In all of these situations, a Homeopathic medicine called Sepia Officinalis is extremely beneficial in curbing these.
  3. Does not create overt reliance on medicines: Hyperthyroidism is a condition that is marked by nervousness and anxiety. Though allopathic medicines have always been preferred to others, it must also been considered that in their attempt to cure, they end up creating an overt reliance of medicines in the patients.
  4. Suits everybody: The primary reason for preferring Homeopathy to others is their complete lack of any side-effect. Both allopathy and ayurveda may or may not work on certain individuals. However, that is not the case for Homeopathy as it does not adopt any artificial means to cure thyroid problems, rather uses natural means to regulate the secretion of the thyroid gland.

Best Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally:

  1. Eat Healthy Fats (Including Coconut Oil and Avocados)
  2. Supplement with Adaptogen Herbs
  3. Balance Your Intake of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Fats
  4. Improve Gut Health & Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
  5. Eliminate Toxic Kitchen, Beauty and Body Care Products
  6. Exercise (Especially Interval Training)
  7. Reduce Stress & Get More Sleep
  8. Watch Your Caffeine & Alcohol Intake
  9. Back Off Birth Control Pills
  10. Supplement with Vitamin D3

Fisrt I need to know about how much is the blood sugar about fasting, pp, hb a1c. Diet plays a major role to treatment of diabetes. You have to follow a low carb high fibre diet with 1600-1800 kcal diet. Use low gi food with each meal like-salads, green veg, protein content foods, fruits like-black berry, 1 small apple, guavava, pears etc, avoid & use in less amount high gi foods -poatao, rice, arbi, mango, grapes, custard apple, chiku etc. Use some insulin resistant foods which you can use 1-2 times in a day whichis helpful to control blood sugar.

General Physician,

Diet details that you might want to consider: A registered dietitian can help you put together a diet based on your health goals, tastes and lifestyle and can provide valuable information on how to change your eating habits. Anyways this is simplified version of diet. Recommended foods: Healthy carbohydrates. During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood glucose. Focus on the healthiest carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils) and low-fat dairy products. Fiber-rich foods. Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Fiber can decrease the risk of heart disease and help control blood sugar levels. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran. Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides. However, avoid fried fish and fish with high levels of mercury, such as tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel.'Good' fats. Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as avocados, almonds, pecans, walnuts, olives, and canola, olive and peanut oils — can help lower your cholesterol levels. Eat them sparingly, however, as all fats are high in calories. Foods to avoid Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. Foods containing the following can work against your goal of a heart-healthy diet. Saturated fats. High-fat dairy products and animal proteins such as beef, hot dogs, sausage and bacon contain saturated fats. Get no more than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Trans fats. These types of fats are found in processed snacks, baked goods, shortening and stick margarines and should be avoided completely. Cholesterol. Sources of cholesterol include high-fat dairy products and high-fat animal proteins, egg yolks, shellfish, liver, and other organ meats. Aim for no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Sodium. Aim for less than 2,300 mg of sodium a day.

What should be a ideal blood sugar level in Diabetes?

The Ideal is maintaining both Fasting post sugar at normal range. However more important is to maintain Gly. HB less then 7.0% (7.0%)

How do Gly. HB estimated?

Gly.HB is ideally done on instrument which has traceability to DCCT (Diabetes Control and Complication trial ) In simple word those techniques which are internationally accepted are to be a used for testing. Testing for Gly.HB. Does not require fasting. Gly.HB is never to be used for diagnosis of diabetes.

Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then there is no problem with becoming pregnant. For priper control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units / l. For pregnancy to occur and have a healthy baby throughout pregnancy tsh should be around 2 milli units / l.
