The best and the most common home remedy for tonsillitis is to gargle with warm salt water. The warm water will have a soothing effect and the salt will help kill the virus or bacteria. Plus, salt helps reduce inflammation, giving you instant relief. Mix one teaspoon of table salt in a cup of warm water. Gargle with the solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Repeat this as often as possible for speedy recovery.

Health Benefits of Bajra

5 reasons you should include bajra in your diet

1. Powerful for controlling diabetes:

Pearl millet is very powerful in controlling diabetes. Because of its high fibre content, it tends to digest slowly and release glucose at a slower rate as compared to other foods. This helps in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels for a long period of time.

2. Weight loss:

Being high in fibre content, it takes a longer time for the grain to move from the stomach to the intestines. This way, bajra curbs hunger for a long span of time.

3. Reduces cholesterol:

It contains phyto chemical, which is called phytic acid believed to increase cholesterol metabolism. It also stabilises the level of cholesterol in the body.

4. Helps in digestion:

Bajra is rich in insoluble fibre that aids digestion. It also reduces secretion of bile acids and is linked to a lowered risk of gallstone formation.

5. Helps prevent cancer:

Bajra has cancer-protecting properties. A study showed that regular intake of bajra protects pre-menopausal women from developing breast cancer.

Hello, Thyroid test should have been done before getting pregnant, According to American Thyroid Association ideally TSH levels should be below 2 mU/L before getting pregnant. During pregnancy levels should be maintained as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.3 to 3 mU/L & 3rd 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. This is absolutely essential because fetal development is affected if the level is higher. The current level is very high. Your gynecologist should have mentioned this to in her briefing. Anyway, if you are not on thyroxine, please start treatment right away. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user. Your tsh levels are raised, that means you have hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include lethargy, weight gain, feeling cold, difficulty in concentration, etc. You may also have low mood or depression like symptoms. So both are connected to some extent. Kindly see a physician and a psychiatrist who will give you required treatment.
