My mother has thyroid issues. She takes eltroxin for 7 years. Recently she felt irregular pain in her lower abdomen. After her USG it was found that her uterus is but bulky. And it has a 1.9x 1.1 cm tumor / fibroid in it. Her hemoglobin count is 8.9. In her periods she has pain and excessive blood issues. We consulted one of very renowned doctor in Kolkata he suggested not to operate that now. Also he has prescribed these medicine below. Neopride total Depsonil pm 75 mg Pause mf Oleanz rt 20 After searching net I found these are mainly anti depression medicines. My mother is near to menopause I feel. These medicine are related to this age issues or doctor thinks she had depression issues. On added note my mother has nervous break down issues. She sweats much. She has insomnia. I want to know are these tendency of psychopath nature? Please suggest.

Mr. Lybrate-user, as a lady nears menopause certain psychological disturbances do occur. But these are temporary. Excessive sweating known as" hot flushes" is quite common during this period. This may remain till menopause is attained or even longer in some women. These are usually minor problems, need not lead to any serious psychiatric issues. As regards her tumor in uterus you may take a second opinion from another gynecologist. But her hemoglobin which is low needs to be treated with hematinic drugs.

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

First thing is take proper anti diabetic drugs to control blood sugar. Also take proper anti hypertensive treatment. As regards the food no direct sugar and sweets, avoid deep fried foods, mutton. You may eat fruits like papaya, orange, water melons, apple, guava, pear and jamun. Exercise regularly. Maintain your weight near normal.

Hello You are Pre Diabetic, and you have both Impaired fasting glycemia and impaired glucose tolerance. You need to take all dietary precautions and life style modifications in same way as Diabetics dose, Evidences suggest that almost 50 % of Pre Diabetics get converted to Diabetics over 5 years duration so you need to recheck Blood sugar levels regularly while observing all life style modification and closely monitor the fluctuations.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take 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. 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. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Ayurvedic treatment will help you for DM. Your insulin will never stop unless your sugar is in control . Do HbA1c regularly for every 3 months. Check your kidney function test. Then start ayurveda Medicine.

Ok. Your sugar is normal. Post prandial sugar <140 is normal but better to get Fasting blood sugar and HbA1C to confirm.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fennel seeds can be taken by a person with diabetes. Whether adding those to tea, (for sweetness), I am not sure. But you can consume those. There are quite a few benefits being claimed about those seeds. Thanks.

How to control thyroid, is there any natural treatment for this. I do not want to use medicine no more.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. If you are referring to hypothyroidism, then please understand it is a condition occurring due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This is an important hormone required daily for development and functioning of brain, plus a great number of metabolic activities in the body. So it needs to be made available every day, through a tablet. Hence the treatment has to go on for life time. There is no other option.

Please note that it will take sufficient time and management to heal completely. As of now take apple cider vinegar which will help relieve acute pain. You can also add honey to the remedy to boost the body’s anti-inflammatory response. 1. Mix one teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons.

Mr. lybrate-user, I do not know who has suggested whisky is good for diabetes. Alcohol in any form is bad for diabetes. It gives empty calories, does not provide any energy, damages liver, affects awareness of hypoglycemia, affects appetite, damages intestinal mucosa. I am not aware how it is useful Thanks.

I am just 30 years old. But I have both diabetes and hypertension. Both has been diagnosed recently. Kindly advice whether I need to take allopathic medication for rest of my life. Is it advisable to take allopathic medication as it is know for its side effects. Can I take ayurvedic or homoeopathic medication? Which one will be effective? Also, please advice whether I can go to gym and do the regular body building exercise?

Allopathic side effects are well known. but nobody knows side effects of ayurvedic or homeopathic medicenes. This is myth that they don't have side effects. there is saying in medicene that a drug which has no side effects, doesn't has any effect. Whole world is following allopathic medicenes, only fraction of population follows ayurvedic. I don't say they are bad it is question of faith. Allopathic is open book it's effect and side effects are written on pamphlet or you can trace them on net. But nothing is available about ayurvedic or homeopathic medicenes. For your confidence, I may tell you many of homeopathic and ayurvedic doctors are my patients for diabetes,
