You need to get help from a psychologist. You should realize that the origin point of anxiety and depression is in your head and the end will also be the same. Find someone who can help you put spotlight on the faulty thought pattern and one's life philosophy. Anxiety is always futuristic and a result of obsession with the outcome and fear of negative happening. It is an imagined negative future happening, whereas one does not realize that anticipated unpleasant-happening may or may not occur but one keeps burning in present to avoid & by fearing it!

Why change? continue the same if it is under control. But, you definitely have to start on antiplatelet drugs since you are a diabetic in order to protect the heart. You definitely should lose weight. You are atleast 20 kg overweight.

Homoeopathic treatment b. C.-20 (adel) chew 4 tab 3 times daily a. C.-4 tabs (bakson) anti dandruff oil (wilmar schwabe india) apply atleast twice weekly. Leave overnight- venome shampoo (biovalley) apply twice weekly (if you do not get this shampoo im mkt then 2nd option is anti-dandruff shampoo (wilmar schwabe india) bloome -201 soap (bioforce) use on face report me back positively after 15 days there we will take a review for any changes getting rid of seborrhic dermatitis 1. Use less shampoo. If you use too much shampoo, you increase the chances that residue will be left behind. Failure to thoroughly rinse out shampoo of the hair causes scalp irritation and flakiness. 2. Exfoliate your scalp. Getting rid of dry, dead skin cells is just as good for your dry scalp as it is for your face. Mix a tablespoon or two of sugar with your shampoo and gently work it into your scalp with the pads of your fingers. Avoid using your fingernails when lathering up, which can cause nicks or cuts. 3. Avoid extremely hot water. Hot water can dry out the skin and aggravate a dry, flaky scalp. The same is true for heat styling products such as a blow-dryer. Excessive heat can cause the scalp to become irritated and dry. 4. Give yourself a scalp massage. A scalp massage causes blood to flow to the scalp, and helps clear any blocked pores that may be interfering with sebum production. Sebum is the oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp. Massaging the scalp also loosens excess dead skin and dandruff, making it easier to wash away. Give yourself a scalp massage before or during your shampoo, or even when you're relaxing in front of the tv. Putting olive oil on your fingertips before the massage gives your scalp added benefits. After the massage, continue with an olive oil treatment.

Hi. If you are suffering from chronic and high grade thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune thyroid disease, in all these cases whether you take allopathic or homoeopathic or any other mode of treatment, it would maintain your thyroid function. Do practice yoga along with these medicines. Yoga-Poses: Kalapbhati: This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath & then exhale quickly, while making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati – you have to forcefully and quickly exhale, but slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times & then release. Ujjayi Pranayam: Sit down on the floor in a cross-legged straight position. Inhale slowly and deeply by both the nostrils. Try to make a hissing sound while you are sucking in the air. After that, stretch your inhale time for a while & then exhale as much as you can without giving any kind of pressure to your other body parts. This type of pranayama is very effective for those suffering from bronchitis, asthma & thyroid. Yoga Nidra (Corpse Pose) also works well in both hypo and hyperthyroidism in reducing stress and calming down. Foods to be avoided in Hypothyroidism: hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.

Bhavyaji, All glucometers produced by reputed companies are good like acucheck, one touch or any other. While using a glucometer you have to prick the tip of the finger for a drop of blood, there is a lancet provided by every company using that is fairly painless. Since finger has to be pricked some pain is bound to be there.

It is not good to have uncontrolled diabetes and blood pressure. It is better to have medicines and keep them well under control. Please start medications at the earliest. If uncontrolled, these disorders may lead to complications.

I am 23 year old. From past 2 year I am suffering from thyroid. I have problem of weight gain. I am now totally dependent on allopathy medicines. I want to treat it naturally. Is their any way to treat? How can I control my weight gain?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Since the question has appeared in front of me, I thought it is better to clarify certain things to you. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder. So the only treatment is to supplement that hormone. There is no other treatment. Weight gain can be controlled, but first tsh levels should be brought down to 3 to 4 milli units. Ml. If presently that level is high, then efforts to control weight will not be effective. Along with drug treatment diet control and exercise are necessary. If you still want t try any other therapy you can go ahead. Best of luck.

Sugar levels mainly depend on natural insulin production in the body If insulin levels are low than sugar level increases And diet is the external factor that we ourself have to control
