Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism has to be treated for life time. You will have to continue these tablets for whole life. There is no option.

Homoeopathic medicine can cure erectile dysfunction within short duration of time. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines at all. Only two things you should avoid while taking homoeopathic medicines for better results 1. Coffee 2. Soft drinks. Remaining all food you can take. 100% results. There are medicines like argentum nit, kali phos, agnus, nux vom can completely cure erectile dysfunction permanently. For further details you can consult me. Thank you.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option...Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy....take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day. ..if TSH level is high then you have to take thyroxin tab depending on your condition....

May be she is having knee Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can occur at any time of life but the incidence increases with age. It usually affects people over 40 years of age. There is no cure for osteoarthritis but the progression of the disease can be slowed and pain and disability reduced. Treatment options include: Healthy body weight: Maintaining a healthy body weight will reduce stress on the arthritic joints. Nutritional supplements Supplements such as glucosamine have been reported to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and halt, or even reverse. So please try to take this supplement once a day. Exercise Exercise can assist with the maintenance of muscle strength and the mobility of arthritic joints. Activity at a level that does not cause pain is not thought to worsen osteoarthritis. Non weight-bearing exercises such as swimming or aqua jogging in a heated pool may be beneficial. Range-of-motion and stretching exercises will help maintain the maximum possible movement in the joint. Stretching will help maintain or restore flexibility to the joint’s muscles and tendons. You can apply cold or heat several times a day to reduce your knee pain. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting See a Physiotherapist for detail exercises programme and manangement.

Sir what type of food may I take, morning afternoon and night, because I am diabetic?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sir what type of food may I take, morning afternoon and night, because I am diabetic?
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

I am suffering from bipolar effective disorder. Blood sugar, prostates. What I should do so as to enable my disease?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , bipolar affective disorder, or manic-depressive illness (mdi), is a common, severe, and persistent mental illness. This condition is a serious lifelong struggle and challenge. The treatment of bipolar affective disorder is directly related to the phase of the episode (ie, depression or mania) and the severity of that phase, and it may involve a combination of psychotherapy and medication. I request you to know more about your disorder, understand it and please do not panic. I know several people who manages their bpad effectively. Management is as good as cure. I repeat, do not panic. You will be able to manage your problem with psychotherapy and medicines. Take care.
