Dietary recommendations: avoid foods high in iodine, such as seafood, iodised salt, eggs, curd, and milk. Eat cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli, preferably raw. Green leafy vegetables like mustard greens, spinach and kale are believed to depress the function of your thyroid. Consume flaxseed oil and ground flaxseeds, as they are ideal sources for omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin d from eggs, salmon, mackerel and mushrooms. Soybeans and soy products can help an over-stimulated thyroid. Whole grains like millet and brown rice, combined with nuts and seeds are rich sources of zinc, an important element necessary for the body functions that might be depleted due to hyperthyroidism. Avoid alcohol, smoking, tea, coffee, colas, and chocolates. Take a high potency b-complex supplement daily to replenish the b vitamins used up for increased metabolism.

Hi doctor I am having fever since last 6 days with continuous headache. I am taking Paracetamol on regular intervals, but my fever temperature is not decreasing from 100 degree, sometimes it reaches to 103 degree as well. Because of the fever my appetite is also reducing day by day. What should I have tp do ?

Hi doctor

Mr. Lybrate-user, taking paracetamol (500 to 1000 mg) 3 to 4 times a day is needed to control fever. When one takes paracetamol, action is fairly fast, but the effect lasts only for about 4 to 5 hours. As the effect wares offf, fever will again rise. Because paracetamol only reduces fever and some pain. It has no action on the cause of the fever, which may be some kind of an infection. So depending on the nature of infection, antibiotic or any other anti bacterial may have to be given, that will help in controllin fever. Thanks.

How can I treat uncontrolled diabetes mellitus type 1 preoperatively and also post operatively?
Hello Sir, You can control your blood glucose levels by following a good healthy diet, avoiding high calorie and high sugar food stuffs, limiting the intake of carbohydrates (rice, roti etc.), increasing the consumption of vegetables and taking adequate amounts of protein - dal, non-veg food etc. Kindly get your fasting and post prandial blood glucose tests regularly. Further get your HbA1C checked every 3 months. Your FPG should be less than 110, PPG should be less than 160 and HbA1C should be less than 6.5 % for good control. Kindly see a good diabetologist who can titrate your insulin doses. If you need any more specific information, please consult me privately through Lybrate. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

Busted: 10 Myths About Infertility

Busted: 10 Myths About Infertility

There are some commonest misconceptions about infertility, and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility, and you can follow them.

List of myths and facts regarding infertility

1.Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21-36 days.

2.Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours, and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two-days after ovulation and five-days before ovulation.

3.Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4.Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5.Myth: Men with a higher sexual-drive will have a normal sperm-count.
Fact: No relation is there in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex-drive do not produce sperms.

6.Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7.Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8.Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

9.Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12-16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

10.Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20, and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi, as you r having hypothyroidism you r ought to put on weight. U feel fatigued & tired, this is all due to hormonal changes. First of all you must hv to start taking Thyroxine medicine daily on empty stomach after getting your TSH done. The dose will be adjusted after your report. You hv to take medicine for whole of your life. After 3-6 months your symptoms will start decreasing. Along side you must start going to Gym. Stop eating fatty things, sugar&maida items& fried &fast foods. Green tea is good.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication will depend on your blood sugar level.

Is it compulsory for everyone to have sugar in a day or can replace it with other options.
Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar is a form of carbohydrate known as disaccharride, which two molecules mono saccharride glucose + fructose. All other foods that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, banana, sweet potato, tapioca, other grains (cereals) all contain starch, which on digestion give maltose (disaccharride) then glucose. So whether you eat sugar or not we get enough glucose in our food. There is no compultion mentioned about consuming sugar. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A person with diabetes can definitely eat curds, it provides some proteins and also a probiotic. Whether it helps control blood glucose or not I am not sure. SInce it does not contain carbs, unlikely to raise blood glucose. As regards IME 9 tablets, a lot of unsubstantiated claims are made about those. There are no properly done (double blind, cross over) clinical studies supporting various claims being made. Still if one wants to use those, as an additional treatment then it is OK. Do not stop modern drugs and switch over to those. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Please answer following questions before I can suggest any treatment for him. 1) Since when is he having diabetes? 2) Has it been always been not under control or only recently has the control gone down? 3) What is his HbA1c%? 4) The evening rise of body temperature has been seen since how long? 5) Did have Tuberculosis infection any time earlier? 6) Similarly getting breathless has been noticed since when? Get following investigations: 1) Full diabetic profile (Fasting, PP, HbA1c%, creatinine, urea, uric acid,), lipid profile, sputum test for AFB, chest x-ray Come back with all these details, or consult your local physician. His diabetes needs to be controlled first effectively. Ideally FBG <100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7, these are the standards to be reached. I await your response. Thanks.

Please get a diabetic profile, lipid profile as well as cbc. Look at hba1c%. If that is high and if lipid profile also shows abnormalities then treatment needs to be upgraded. Plus his bmi is 27.85kg/m2, which suggests he is overweight. Hence needs to control weight through exercise and restricted diet. His ideal body weight should be about 61 kgs. So diet has to be planned at this weight and also dependinhg on his daily physical activity. Present dosage of anti diabetic treatment is too less.

I am 41 years old. Kindly tell me is obemac is safe to use. Or it has some side effects? I am a hyper thyroid patient. please suggest soon.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Obemac is a fat burner. But, most fat burners in my experience have majorly not worked. Most people take it as a “trial and error” product meaning that they only find out that most often it's not really effective after trying it. Keep in mind that obemac is not recommended for people with cardiac problems. Most people claim to have experience little or no difference at all after using a fat burner. Like any fat burner there are chances of side effects. Give your body a chance to lose weight by natural and healthy ways. That's more lasting.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat. (biochemic) kali dichrom 12x, bio combination number 7, (homeo) gymnema sylvestre q, syzygium jambolanum. Its for diabetes.
