According to experts now it is compulsory to screen every woman who wants to become pregnant for thyroid function. Because pregnancy increases the possibility of getting hypothyroidism. If a lady is having hyothyroidism then conception is unlikely to occur. If it does occur then the fetal development is affected, out come of pregnancy can be bad. The new born may have low iq.

General Physician,
To prescribe medicines and diet you ask privately. For confidentiality. Many factors contribute to hyperuricemia, including: genetics, insulin resistance, hypertension, renal insufficiency, obesity, diet, use of diuretics, and consumption of alcoholic beverages.of these, alcohol consumption is the most important. causes of hyperuricemia can be classified into three functional types: increased production of uric acid, decreased excretion of uric acid, and mixed type. Causes of increased production include high levels of purine in the diet and increased purine metabolism. Causes of decreased excretion include kidney disease, certain drugs, and competition for excretion between uric acid and other molecules. Mixed causes include high levels of alcohol and/or fructose in the diet, and starvation.

My dad has got diabetes from my grandmother. Doctors told that it would come by hereditary. Do I also get diabetes by hereditary & is there any way of escaping from that hereditary disease?

if parents have it then children are most likely to get it. One can not escape. However, it is also a lifestyle dependent disease, so if one adapts a healthy and regulated or modified life style then can prevent it. So if you want to remain free from t2dm then follow these guidelines - 1) exercise regularly for more than one h a day, 2) maintain weight near normal, 3) refrain from deep fried food, junk food and pastries etc 4) caloric intake should match the needs of your body.

Type 2 diabetes can be treated with cupping therapy with only 30% success rate due to the fact that the pancreas are located deep inside the viscera behind the liver. However, a much higher success rate is achieved by applying cupping therapy.

Hello lybrate-user, in type 1 diabetes, insulin is the only line of management. Some newer drug are approved by FDA but they are add-on to your insulin and efficacy wise these drugs are not effective as single therapy but insulin can't be substituted.
