My dad its RMD (gutkha) he had an diabetic (sugar) does it RMD harmful for him or not?
Mr. lybrate-user, Gutka is bad for everybody, more so for a person with diabetes. Even in normal person it is associated with conditions like fibroscitis, where cheek muscles harden and opening the mouth becomes difficult. Plus there are a large number of oral and tongue cancers reported in people consuming gutka. In a diabetic person generally immune system is a bit vulnerable, so gutka can cause serious damage. Thanks.

Hi 2 years back it was detected that I do have hypothyroidism. I continued Ayurveda treatment for almost 2 years however I have discontinued the treatment as the medicine was making me very lethargic and was also affecting my decision making skills.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. 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 bad habits . Avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work.

Mr. Lybrate-user, normal range of tsh is 0.3 to 6 milli units/ml. Usually tsh level between 6 to 10 milli units/ml is considered sub clinical hypothyroidism. Above 10 milli units/ml, treatment is indicated. Thyroxine hormone secreted by thyroid gland is an essential hormone, needed for development and functioning of brain, required for almost every single metabolic activity in the body. Deficiency causes multiple symptoms affecting various organs and systems. Usually seen symptoms are slow heart rate, swelling of face nd lower limbs, dry skin. Dry hair, hair fall, weight gain, in females irregularity of menstrual cycle, excess flow, difficulty in becoming pregnant, improper outcome of pregnancy, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety, depression, early fatigue and tiredness etc. If not treated it can lead to more serious condition called myxdema.

Hello- Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol. What to avoid • Shell fishes, red meat, minced meat, meat extracts, organ meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral). • Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole etc.). Other dals are allowed. • Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, french beans, brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple. Diet rules • Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking rice or in chapatti dough. • Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt palatable. • Remove the salt shaker from the table. • Avoid salted nuts/biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys. • Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved foods; eg. Bakery products. • Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might cause an electrolyte imbalance. Some Brilliant ayurvedic medicines for High uric acid- 1) Kokilakshadi Kashaya 2 tsp twice daily 2) Mahatiktaka ghrita 1 tsp twice daily.

Dear lybrate-user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Have you been trying to have kids for a long time? Is inability and delay giving you sleepless nights? It is important to know that Stress alone is a major factor for infertility.
Can Stress Have an Effect on Your Fertility?
If your mind and body is under stress your body is signaled to release a hormone - Adrenalin. This is a stress relieving hormone and gives your body the rush to face the stress. This hormone inhibits the utilization of the hormone Progesterone, which is essential for fertility. Also during stress Prolactin, another hormone, is relapsed which also interferes with infertility. Hence to conceive its essential that your anxiety levels are under control.
Chronic Stress also decreases libido:
Chronic stress may cause lack of libido as well as a decrease in general fertility. This has become such a common issue that they have created a name for it Stress Induced Reproductive Dysfunction. These facts are very important to consider if you have been trying to conceive with no results. It also shows that stress relief should be a part of every couple's conception plan even if they are going through IVF.
Ways to reduce stress & improve fertility:
If you are having difficulty to conceive, it's imperative that you get fertility tests done and also evaluate your life. Look out for the stress points that may be hindering a relationship. Remember defeating the stress may be the solution to your worries.
Reduce stress in your life: The issues in your life may be work or result related. You need to learn to balance your personal and professional life. The sooner you do it the better; after all you are preparing yourself to welcome a new born in your life.
Change your reactions: Get a hang of the situation and react accordingly. Over reaction to a situation can harm your body and mind. Stop bothering so much about the future.
Let few things be the way they are: Stop getting bothered about people. Remember by nature everything will fall in place. Let few things be the way they are.
Make it your habit to reduce stress: Call it an obsession or a practice, train your mind to choose options where there is less stress.
Sleep well: A good rest is essential for a healthy mind and body. Meditate, do yoga or seek counseling. Go for facials if it sooths you.
Please note that if your fertility reports are normal, then it's just a matter of time. Give you, your partner and your body time. There are certain medical complications or disorders that can also be responsible for infertility. Be calm and composed so that you are able to face the rough waters clearly with your partner.

Proscribe food for debates Patient ?
A diabetic person has to consume food like all of us, that is he / she should get calories from carbohydrates, proteins and fats in same proportion as for others. Carbs 55- 60 %, proteins 15% & fats 20 - 25%. The main difference is food should contain items made from whole grain flour, eat good amount of pulses and green salads. Avoid deep fried foods. A diet for individual patient can be prescribed looking at weight, exercise level and control of diabetes. The points made above are general. So if you want to know specific diet for someone I would need lot more details of that person.

For decades I was a rice eater and since two months, I have switched over to wheat rava[coarse] eaten in the same way as rice with sambar, rasam and buttermilk. Besides my morning breakfast comprises oats mixed with 1 to 1.5 tsp of jaggery and milk. I have stopped eating ghee, oily products except small qty. Oil used in making curry, sambar and rasam, outside foods, etc. Am I still open to risk of contracting diabetes and/or other health disorders? is jaggery better than sugar? please advice. Thanks doctor.

You don't need to switch over to a routine that is different from what you have grown up eating. Avoiding rice and ghee and your traditional breakfast foods is not the way to good health. The reason for your health being affected is not your traditional foods but the lack of discipline, stress, inactivity and intake of junk and packeted foods. Rice is easy to digest than wheat or other cereals and your body us used to it so go for your traditional unpolished rice in moderation and even ghee is good for health because fat is needed by your body even to manage sugar levels. Organic jaggery is fine to take. So don't demonise the traditional foods and stick to it. Try to look into other aspects of your lifestyle in order to maintain good health and avoid lifestyle disorders.
