Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between

What is the most beneficial diet for a diabetes patient? What kind of food a diabetes patient should eat?

What is the most beneficial diet for a diabetes patient? What kind of food a diabetes patient should eat?
Diet high in protein (20% of kcals) for the health of diabetics because it supplies the essential amino acids needed for tissue repair. Pulsese are rich in protein and fibre. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Junk food should be avoided. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, bay leaves in food items. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetes patient.

Mr zuber, to improve constipation, you may have to increase fiber intake in the diet. So consume more fruits like apples with skin, pears, guava, melons and bananas. Also add flax seeds about 30 g a day and green vegetables (other than cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli) in addition consume more water and take a glass of warm water as soon as you get up in the morning. These measure may help to reduce the problem.

How Homeopathy Helps to Treat Hypothyroidism?

How Homeopathy Helps to Treat Hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in your body. Hypothyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland of your body is unable to produce the thyroid hormones like T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Hypothyroidism can occur due to the inflammation of the thyroid gland or as a result of previous thyroid treatments, where a major portion of the thyroid producing cells has been removed. Hypothyroidism is more common in women. But, it can develop in any person irrespective of age or sex.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are as follows:

1. Fatigue
2. Increased feeling of cold
3. Dryness of skin
4. Constipation
5. Depression
6. Obesity
7. Increased blood cholesterol level
8. Your muscles may be become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, but it may vary from person to person. Hypothyroidism is a very common problem and homeopathy offers a very safe, painless and effective treatment for hypothyroidism.

The following are few of the homeopathic remedies for hyperthyroidism:

1. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is advised to people suffering from obesity and increased sensitiveness to cold temperature.

2. Sepia Officinalis: This medicine is suggested to people suffering from irregular menstrual cycle and increased sensitivity to cold.

3. Nux Vomica: Nux vomica is prescribed when the patient shows symptom of depression.

4. Lycopodium Clavatum: This medicine is given to people having gastric troubles or encountering excessive hair fall.

Along with these, there are various other medicines such as Iodium, thyroidinum, spongia, lycopus and lapis albus. But it is highly recommended for you to consult a homeopathic physician to receive correct advice before taking any medication by yourself.

However, certain precautions should be taken like - 1) avoid vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and mustard and coffee, 2) use whole grain flour made breads, 3) always use iodinated salt, 4) consume good amount of green vegetables like tomato, spinach, palak, onion, garlic etc 5) avoid soyabean containing products.

How to cure thyroid.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies.

Your chance of having normal baby depends on certain things like controlled thyroid status, detailed usg, regular check up, blood pressure, sugar etc. Vaginal delivery is not always risky if the conditions are well controlled but at this age, you may have prolonged labour.

Are pickle good for health for diabetes patient or harmful for a diabetic patient help me out.
Mr. Lybrate-user, pickles contain a lot of salt, which is basically unhealthy. These are taken to enhance the taste of food, but they are definitely not good. Especially in a person with raised blood pressure pickles are a taboo. For others too a little bit occasionally may be used. Ther is no health benefit from them.

hyperthyroidism before pregnancy means through pregnancy there is antithyroid treatment on. Carbimazole crosses the placental barrier, hence can affect the development of thyroid gland in fetus causing hypothyroidism. So propylthiouracil is preferred as it does not cross the placental barrier. However, there are possible side effects of these drugs affecting the pregnancy. Usually antithyroid drugs are given for 12 to 18 months and stopped. That could be one option when hyperthyroidism is completely controlled.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Why fasting sugar sometimes more than post lunch sugar?

Blood sugar level is a result of two controlling factors
1. Sugar Intake
2. Insulin response by the pancreas after meal. The pancreas creates insulin which brings down the blood sugar level. A heavy meal will cause increased secretion of insulin in a normal healthy adult. So surprisingly the heavier the meal (sweet Food) you consume lower will be blood sugar level. In patients, on treatment who takes tablets / Insulin before meal the same effects are seen.
During treatment of diabetes fasting sugar is maintained at higher level then post lunch sugar to prevent complication of hypoglycemia during sleep.
