In general, thyroid means it either be hypo or hyper. But mostly we see hypo only in people, people who have thyroid dysfunctioning are need to take care of diet, they should consume proper levels of iodine in their diet. They should follow particular exercises. Consumption of coffee, tea should be minimised& regular exercises should be followed to maintain the proper wt/ht ratio. Regular tests for tsh is mandatory to follow up the progress. Intake of calcium& d vitamin supplements {preferably in food source] is mandatory.

I am 54 years old and have type -2 diabetics for last 3 years. Want to understand if homeopathy has a treatment for diabetics also. My fasting sugar is 175 and after food is 290. Please revert. Thanks.

Master in Food/ Nutrition/ Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hello, yes homeopathy can work for type 2. Lifestyle changes are equally important to manage diabetes. Regular exercise, small and frequent meals (5-6 meals) instead of 3 big traditional meals are the key things. Focus more on complex carbohydrates such as millets (ragi, jowar, bajra, oats), whole wheat. Avoid eating the bakery and processed food as much as possible.

I am 35 year old. My Uric acid level is 8.3 and vitamin d is 3.7. I am non drinker and vegetarian.

MBBS
General Physician,
You should consult a nephrologists for your high uric acid level and for vitamin d the eargosterol pigment which is present in the skin gets converted b into vitamin d by exposure to early morning ultraviolet rays of the sun.

I'm 50 years old woman. I'm suffering from gastric trouble. Even little food makes me feel full. Sometimes I have left hand pain also. Always some disturbance and irritability in stomach. Is that good to use triphala in this condition. Will it increase gas and bloating? I have 140 blood sugar level? Will it increase chances of diabetes? I have hypothyroidism also. Suggest me the uses of triphala, a ayurvedic medicine. Can I take that?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Cold milk or butter milk or anta- acids may help in relieving acidity. But some times at the age of 50 it is essential to rule out cardiac pain with ecg and if doubt with stress test you may need proper bsf/pp/hba1c test to rule out diabetes. Some patients may require ogd scopy.

I want to know that what is the between treatment of a diabetes patient forty five years old.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Prashant, I am unable to understand your question. However, I am giving some explanation which may help. For T2 DM (which is usually seen older persons) can be treated by oral anti diabetic drugs or with Insulin injections or at times both are used together for better control. In addition exercise and diet control are also equally important. Because extra weight and inactivity both contribute to diabetes. Plus it is necessary to avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also person has refrain from red meat, egg yolk, alcohol and smoking.

I'm 23 years old girl, I am taking medicine for cyst and thyroid from a homeopathic Doctor for past 6 months, before that I was taking medicine for dinner same problem from allopathic, I had to change because it was not suiting me, but I am not able to control my hairfall, it is in very bad condition, please help me.

Madam, we have specialized tablets to control hair fall. These tablets clear blocks at the root of hair follicles thereby giving them proper protein and nutrition and hence hair becomes thick and strong and follicles that are devoid of hair acquire nutrition and grow hairs in them. At the same time, medicine retards destruction of estrogen, thereby reducing hair fall. Above all else, medicine strengthen liver so that absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food increases.

Hi When the temperature is too low, blood circulation reduces and causes paleness of skin and numbness too. Avoid exposure to cold, keep yourself warm ,do not take tobacco or coffee as nicotine and caffeine decrease blood circulation. Drink lots of water to prevent dehydration. Check your thyroid levels also.

Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

Are you aware that shaking hands can be an early sign of thyroid disease?

Yes, that's right! Even in patients who have a low thyroid function, shaking of hands can appear when the dose of thyroxine becomes too high - and it can be a reliable indicator to titrate the dose (which means, if an increase in dose of thyroxine makes the hands start shaking, then the dose should be reduced). In hyperthyroidism (or excessive thryoxine hormone synthesis states in the body), one of the cardinal symptoms is shaking of the hands.

So how do you know for sure it is due to thyroid hormone excess? And how do you differentiate this from other kinds of tremor?
