One doctor unnecessarily confused that if a diabetic overweight or underweight patient takes lots of stress, sugar level may reduce some times. Is it the truth? Or wrong suggestion?

Hi, Sugars have a strong correlation with stress. Sugars may go high or low when a diabetic patient stresses out also similar issues arise if a patient had infection.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

Role Of Stress In Infertility

Hi everyone,

Main Dr. Rekha Anand, Gynecologist, Kharghar, Navi Mumbai me practice krti hun. Aaj me apko role of stress in infertility ke bare me btaungi. Urban population me stress ka bhut bda role hai infertility cases me. Major reason hai late marriages. Quki logon ke lia financial condition and career jyada important hai. Nuclear family me family support zero hota hai. Log jyada tire ho jate hai jinse unke physical relations nhi ban pate hain. And unki intercourse frequency kam ho jati hai.

Or jab unhe lgta hai ki unhe pregnancy chaiye to immediate results ki expectations rkhte hain. Pregnancy ke lia apne aap ko waqt den. Agar sab thik hai to 1 saal ka waqt khud ko den. Uske baad hi kisi treatment ki traf dekhen. Jab hum treatment shur krte hain to medicines ke sath sath psychological aspects aa jate hain. Jaise investigation ke lia couple ko bar bar ana pdta hai. Iske lia unhe job se choti leni pdti hai. Quki ye time bound hote hai. Kuch investigations kafi expensive bhi hote hain.

Painful bhi hote hain. Body pe side-effects bhi aate hain. Treatment 100% successful bhi nhi hote hain. IVF bhi 100% successful nhi hai. Jab pregnancy achieve ho jati hai to bhi patient ko darr rehta hai ki miscarriage na ho jaye. Isi reason se vo ye khushi share krne me darte hain. In sab se couple ke bich me happiness thodi khatm ho jati hai. Is se results pe bhi effect pdta hai. Log social gathering ko avoid krne lgte hain. Fertility ka treatment samay le skta hai. Aap apne aap ko and doctor ko samay den. Doctor and apne pe trust kren. Hume ye bhi pta hone chaiye ki treatment ka ed point kab hai. Is bare me or janne ke lia aap Lybrate ke through mujhse information le skte hain.

Thanks!

Your TSH and therefore the thyroid is still not in full control. You have to increase the dose and test for thyroid antibodies.

Oral And Diabetes

Diabetes and Dental Disease : *A two way street*.
Diabetes is a *multifactorial* disease that affect various organ of our body like heart, kidney, eyes and of course not sparing one of the vital organ like mouth including teeth and gums. Teeth and gums are indispensable Do us as we chew our food. Digestion begin in mouth. diabetes affect our oral cavity leads to loosening of tooth, swelling of gums, and also bone loss around the teeth leads to pus pain, discomfort. Researchers have proved diabetes to be a double edge sword means it impairs sugar control & also let our body fail to cope with it.

*Dental Surgeons* play a key role in diagnosing diabetes and also treat the symptoms related to diabetes and also controls sugar through dental treatment.

So diabetic patients warrant urgent referral to *dental surgeons* and get all round treatment of oral cavity.

Remember the notion goes in its way:

"Pain is mandatory but suffering is optional.

It can't be controlled by exercise only. You have to take medicine to control along with dietary advice and exercise. Consult a nearby physician

The situation needs detailed discussion. Valproate can cause problems with development of the baby. But not always valproate will cause problems. On the other hand uncontrolled epilepsy is more dangerous for you and your baby. Majority of the valproate related problems can be diagnosed in ultrasound. But some problems can develop at relatively late age of the baby. Please start folic acid and discuss the issue in a meeting with neurologist, gynaecologist and your family being present.
