You have written that your father has high blood sugars & he has eye problems. This means he is most likely having type 2 diabetes mellitus. But in the" conditions" section, you have written diabetes insipidus. The 2 are entirely different conditions, though they sound similar. Please clarify.

I have thyroid. I take thyronorm 75 regularly. Can thyroid be cured with homeopathy or any other treatment?

I have thyroid. I take thyronorm 75 regularly. Can thyroid be cured with homeopathy or any other treatment?
You can take 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. 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. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Hi If the doctors have suggested removal of the finger as it is black, it is probably a gangrene that has been diagnosed. This means that finger is decayed and has no life in it due to lack of blood supply and infection. If not removed on time the problem can spread to the other fingers and the entire limb as well.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes if not well controlled almost always causes frozen shoulder as a complication. Primary need therefore is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Problem of loose motion may or may not be linked to diabetes. Sometimes gastrointestinal problems may be seen in diabetes. Suggestions or advise can be given only if all the necessary details are made available including FBS, PP HbA1c%, dietary habits, extent of exercise, current medications with dosage. Thanks.

Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals.

Hello doctors, im a 28 years old man, My glycemic index two weeks ago was 4.4 mmol. Today after craving on sugar, oily foods and sleep, it is 8.9 mmol. Does it mean I have diabetes?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Glycemic index is given for different foods. That tells how fast that food gets converted to glucose in the body. Meaning high glycemic index products like rice, idli, sweets potato get converted to glucose rapidly raising the blood glucose level. I am unable to understand what are you actually hinting. We only have blood glucose level. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Your latest thyroid function test is indicative of hypothyroidism which needs to be controlled well. Advise consult an experienced endocrinologist asap for further traction in this regard. Again, your USG report presenting with endometrial thickness, bulky ovary with PCOS etc all are indicative of hormonal imbalance that needs to be suitably addressed too. You need to consult your OB/ GYN in this regard who can suitably consult in this aspect. In the meantime, do keep you diet & lifestyle streamlined and stay well hydrated. De-stress and relax daily. Hope this helps. You can connect for a naturopathic integrative traction of the issues anytime. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are no medicines to control the craving for sweets. Sometimes, if patients use artificial sweeteners, then those chemicals increase the craving for sweets. Controlling craving is entirely in your hands. If you do not control then blood sugar is bound to very high. I am sure you are aware what serious complications result from uncontrolled diabetes, things like retinopathy leading to blindness, damage to kidney leading to end stage renal failure, severe neuropathy, non- healing ulcers on foot leading to gangrene and amputation, silent heart attacks etc. So choice is yours, either control the cravings or face/invite complications. Thanks for the question.

My age is 60 years and I am suffering from diabetic. I want to know how can I take care of my body in diabetes.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes it is necessary to do things mentioned below: 1) First and foremost is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% < 7. 2) Take a restricted diet that meets exact caloric needs based on the ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. 3) Avoid sweets, deep fired foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made out of maida, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. 4) Exercise regularly for at lease 1 hour a day, brisk walking is an excellent option. Maintain your weight near normal. 5) Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) 6) Refrain from alcohol and smoking. 7) Take the prescribed medication regularly without missing a dose. 8) Do a periodic check up of blood glucose, HbA1c% and lipid profile. If one follows all the above guidelines meticulously, then it is possible to live a fairly normal and healthy life with diabetes. If you have any questions do come back. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, if you have hashimoto' s (thyroiditis ht) leading to hypothyroidism, then only treatment is to supplement thyroxine hormone by taking adequate amount daily. Unless hypothyroidism is completely controlled, efforts to reduce weight will not succeeded. Dosage will depend upon body weight and t4 levels. Please understand this is the only remedy available world wide. Thanks.
