I ve diabetic retinopathy is their any other medication than laser. Please tell me.
Lybrate-user, laser is used when there is proliferative retinopathy and bleeding (pre- retinal, or vitreal). Because those newly generated vessels which bleed have to be burned. Once that is done, if needed other treatments also can be used like intra vitreal injections. The treating ophthalmologist is the best judge for treatment choice. It better to follow that, as this is a sight threatening condition. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate user, yes, that advise is good to fllow, you need to practce pranayama daily twice[morning night]. There are types of pranayamas, like anuloma, & viloma. Its better to take any yoga therapist/instructor/s help,& also, you better to do few asanas, atleast practicing suryanamaskaras daily minimum 4-5 times also will give good results. Take care. Try to take water atleast 3-4 litres. Irrespective of thirst, daily. Taking 1/2litres [or 1 litre}in morning itself is good cleanser for body.

Cucumber doesn't have any connection with uric acid. Don't work out heavily, it will increase uric acid. Do mild exercise and drink plenty of water.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

When you know your thyroid gland is performing low you cannot get relief with slimming pills and there is no slimming pill as it is. Some people and companies advertise slimming pills but they are commercially motivated with draining of your hard earned money. Homoeopathic approach here is not to substitute with thyroid hormones but to study the cause of lowered thyroid and why it is occurring in you. The cause is with in ie. Altered immunity and it is determined by your genetic make up which has to be studied on consultation and a correct medicine is given to balance your immunity which makes your thyroid to function normally curing your condition.

Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.

You need complete evaluation. Thyroid is gland and its disorders are usually lifelong. However we need to evaluate you completely before giving you any final outcome.

What time to take diabetes medicine in the day? Is diabetics totally cure by medicine?
Hello, time should be given by the doctor, based on the tablet and your health condition. No, diabetics is just controlled by medicine, that is the reason, doctors suggest life long medication. But if you have proper nutritional values in your diet along with medication, slowly your sugar levels will come down, then doctor minimize the dosage, and slowly you can completely cure from diabetes.

PAIN IN LOWER CHEST IS DUE TO ACIDITY OR GASTRITIS. YOU CAN TAKE SYP. ULGEL-A 15ML SOS. IN HYPOTHYROIDISM:--- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, 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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

I have high tsh and normal t3 and t4. The report says I have mild subclinical hypothyroidism. I have done the test twice and got the same result. What measures should I take with respect to my diet, exercise and sleep? Also is it possible to cure it completely? I'm 42 and female. What other health risks should I look out for? Thank you.

You need to start the medication if not started, If already on the medication then you need to increase your current dose.You will need to reduce your weight by following a proper diet & doing regular exercise... however that can happen only once your TSH is normalised.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thyroid is the normal gland present is all of us, producing hormones T3 & T4 (thyroxine), which are essential for brain development, daily functioning of it and various metabolic functions in the body. Deficiency of thyroid function causes hypothyroidism - leading to weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, pain in joints and muscles, swelling of face, legs, dry skin, dry hair. Hair fall, anxiety and depression. In females it can lead to infertility, irregular menstruation etc. It can be treated by taking adequate dose of thyroxine hormone. Thanks.

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.
