1. I often get severe back pain. Please advice, what could be the reason?
2. What are the symptoms of Thyroid. Pls help?
1. For back pain: exercise regularly including stretching, yoga and exercises by lying on back. Do not sit at one place for longer time, avoid bending and lifting heavy weight. Apply orthomove oil over back twice daily. You may need internal medication. Consult for that. 2. Two types of thyroid changes hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. In hypothyroid, there is weight gain, laziness, lethargy, hair fall, irregular menses in females, chilliness etc. In hyperthyroid there is profuse perspiration, feeling hot all the time, weight loss, heavy bleeding, restlessness etc.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Alcohol is poison. A single drop of alcohol even damages liver cells. Moreover, alcohol interact with most medicines. Please avoid alcohol. Take care.

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).

yes that is absolutely true as sugar is a source of empty calories. replace sweets with fruits like dates, banana, mango, jackfruit, pomegranate, watermelon, grapes, etc. you may try desserts prepared with fruits ex: dates-nuts laddoo, dates payasam, orange srikhand

Hello, madam, if you are interested in becoming pregnant and having hypothyroidism then it absolutely essential to control that condition effectively. Tsh levels should be below 2 mill units if you want to get conception and through out pregnancy tsh should remain closer to 2 milli nits / ml. If this is not done, conception may not occue, or fetal neurocognitive development will be affected and chances of premature birth and low birth weight as well as miscarriage may occur.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Mr Faisal, Diabetes mellitus, generally does not produce any symptoms, that is why many people do not come to know that they have a problem. However, when disease develops fully it may cause excess urination. excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained tiredness, weight loss. Initiation of proper treatment invariably corrects all the symptoms. To know whether one has diabetes is to check blood sugar levels periodically, once in 6 months to one year. Particularly if parents have T2 DM, then all the children must do a periodic check up.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if he has diabetes mellitus, then treatment has to be taken daily for life time. Hum har rose khate hai, uska glucose banata hai, us glucose ko khoon se nikal kar shareer ke alag bahgome bhejane ke liye insulin ki jaroorat hoti hai. Diabetes ki dava yeh insulin tayar karane ke liye madad karati hai, ya insulin hi diya jata hai. Jab khana rose chahiye to dava ki bhi jaroorat hai. Ye silsila jeevan bhar chalata rahega. Dava na lenese taklif badhegi, dava se nahi.

I am 74 years old and suffering from diabets since 10 years and it type -2. I am using galvas met 2 tablets a day and one tablet of glycipage 500 mg. As galvas met is costly will you kindly suggest any other alternative tablet to keep my blood sugar level in normal sir? you may also suggest homeopathic /ayurvda medicines also. Now after taking above tablets my blood sugar level in fasting is 130. Please advice.

You can use other medicine like guconorm g2. But you will have to check blood sugar regularly for sometime after starting this medicine to make sure it is lowering down sugar. It is comparatively cheap medicine than galvas met.

Adopt sugar free powder available in market, while producing sweet products, sugar free toothpaste, sugar free sweet products, along with exercise, best food for diabetic patients are bitter products like karela, ajwain, jeera, ginger that will reduce sugar level & balance body from other diseases.

I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern. Sudden weight fluctuations in diabetes should be considered as red flag sign and you should take it seriously. I would like to know your blood sugar levels. Also Kidney function tests you need to get done. Write to me with all your reports and blood sugar status.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning.

I am 57yr old male and I am suffering from hypothyroidism. What should I do? Please help me.
you can take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Now after 10 days of monitoring there is a black skin appearance at his near by leg fingers (doctor saying that is due to blood not reaching those places properly) now doctor says to remove upto leg ankle as blood flow is not proper upto that areas. Is there anyway to save my grandfather.

My father recently tested sugar and it is 290 in fasting. We consulted a doctor today and he advised to take insulin with power 20 morning and 16 night. My parents are very worried and I have never seen my father so weak before. I am trying hard to make the situation light by smiling and sharing many website notes where it is mentioned that it is curable and nothing to worry. They feel a bit relieved but still something is killing them inside. I am keeping myself strong by saying positive things to them but the truth is I am scared inside. Please suggest me what is the best possible treatment for this disease so that I can see my papa jumping and smiling. I know he is very strong but I also know that he is very worried. Can this be curable? I love them a lot please give me some power so that I can make them much strong and my father can get out of this disease completely.
