Am suffer from diabetes from diabetes from last two years, joined pain problems in my knee.
Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi, I am 50 Years old. I have been taking 150 mg thyroid for the last two years, Now my tests show that my Ferritin Level is 1244. Please suggest me some diets (yes and no both).

Although extremely elevated ferritin levels may be associated with rheumatologic diseases, more often they are found in patients with other conditions such as malignancy or infection. In addition, extremely high ferritin levels can be found in patients with seemingly indolent disease or levels of chronic inflammation.

Lybrate-user, tsh level of 5.15 milli units / ml, is with in the normal range. There is no reason to worry about this with this tsh level. You may avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Plus exercise daily to avoid weight increase.

Mr Anthony, Looking at the details given, it appears that the kidney function is good. Even on one kidney a person can live a normal life. As regards her BP if it is in control with cilindipine continue the same. Her sugar levels are high. Fasting 114 mg is marginally high. Whereas after food levels is definitely too high, suggesting a need for taking proper anti diabetic medication. Ayurvedic drugs do not bring the sugar levels to normal. After food level is taken after 2 h of food. If it is above 200 mg, signifies diabetes. Please understand various conditions which she has are not curable, they can only be controlled with proper medication. So continue the treatment. If kidney function does go down then dialysis is the option.

Your thyroid needs iodine to work well, get enough from iodized table salt, fish, shrimp, and seaweeds. Thyroid needs magnesium also - spinach, lettuce, and other leafy greens are great sources of magnesium. Also cashews, almonds, and pumpkin seeds are another excellent source of magnesium.

lybrate-user there are many causes for your problem. Firstly I advise you to stop using all sorts of synthetic shampoos. You can use any HERBAL shampoo and plain Coconut hair oil. You can go in for HOMEOPATHIC ARNICA HAIR oil. Try this for a couple of weeks and consult me on my Private questions for Homeopathic treatment whics is safest and effective for such problems. GOOD DAY.

All types of exercises like walking, yoga etc if done in moderation, are good for diabetes but avoiding medicine if not suggested by a qualified doctor is not a good idea. I agree with you that medicines have side effects but if you take them under supervision they can be recognized and medicine may be changed accordingly.

6 weeks plus is too early to predict outcome of growth. Thyroid is low on borderline and I would not suggest medicine during early pregnancy. Be sure that baby growth will pick up within few days specially if medical reports are normal you may be given medicines for low thyroid later. Do write back after a month. Eat a low fat but light high protein diet to avoid vomiting.

You can stop your existing medication and instead start Glycomet Gp Forte (1/1000mg) at night. Also, do a HbA1c level. And repeat blood sugar levels fasting and PP after 7 days.
