Can I get cured from hypothyroidism by other forms of medicine neglecting allopathy? I don't have it in my family. I got it after consumption of tabs to kill gut parasites. I had continuous diarrhea for 3 months, then after three months I put on 20 kilos face swollen allergy and diagnosed with hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism now a days is more an iodine deficiency disease, but it has become an autoimmune disease. In homoeopathy we give the medicine which makes the body generator, an adequate thyroid level, so that gradually body resume it's original functionality which is visible through the thyroid level test time to time, and gradually you can get rid of your altroxin as well, and may be after sometime you can stop homoeopathy medicine as your thyroid level remains normal afterwards. Avoid cabbage, cauliflower, soya in food.

If I had taken 50 mg tab for thyroid then I should take 75 mg as my thyroid is 10.55 or should I take higher dose previously when I was taking 50 mg tab my tsh was 4.55.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is necessary to maintain TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, hence the dose needs to be increased. You may increase by 12.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks if the level has not come down as explained, then dosage can be further increased by 12.5 mcg. Thanks.

Hye. There is no special variety of bananas for diabetics. Bananas are a moderately low glycerin index fruit. You must understand that to maintain sugar levels the ideal way to take any fruit is as a mid meal or as an early morning snack or after a strenuous activity. Avoid fruits after a main meal or with meals. Stick to a moderate amount of any fruit and avoid their juices.

Hello, Question is a bit unclear. Patient has hypertension and is on Ramipril, still the BP is uncontrolled (170/102 mm Hg). There is no mention of blood glucose levels and HbA1c% also no mention about the treatment for diabetes. So it is unclear whether you are asking about treatment for diabetes or hypertension. In any case in this communication I can only give general guidelines, no drugs can be prescribed or suggested here. If you are looking for any specific treatment please come in a private conversation with all the details mentioned above, plus dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Thanks.

He should have sugar free diet, also avoid honey and jagary (Gur. He should avoid sweets and sweet fruits like grapes, banana,mangoes and cheeku. Other fruits should not be taken in large amount as they will increase glucose as well as potassium level which are not good for a diabetic patient whose kidneys are affected.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and 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. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes even when well controlled tends to affect peripheral nerves causing peripheral neuropathy. If the glucose levels are not in control then there can be a fairly severe neuropathy. This causes symptoms like numbness, tingling and pain in legs, feet and even upper limbs. So it is essential to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Otherwise consequences can be bad. There are some drugs used to treat diabetic neuropathy like combination of Methylcobalamine, Lipoleic acid, folic acid, plus for pain and other symptoms control drugs like pragabalin and/or gabapentine are used. But most important is to achieve a strict blood glucose control Thanks.

Graves' Disease - Things You Should Know About It

MBBS & Post Graduate Course in Diabetology, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), CCEBDM
Endocrinologist, Bangalore
Graves' Disease - Things You Should Know About It

The body has multiple chemicals called hormones, which regulate many of its functions. Increased or decreased levels of these hormones affect various functions including metabolism, growth and sexual functions. Thyroxin produced by the thyroid (situated in the front of the neck) is one such hormone, which has a significant role to play in metabolism.

Graves’ disease is one of the main causes of hyperthyroidism, where there is excessive production of thyroid hormones. Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder, wherein the body reacts against its own tissues. It is very common in women than men, especially after 20 years of age. Family history also has a strong correlation in developing Graves’ disease. The high levels of thyroid hormone increase the rate of metabolism, thereby altering weight, mental energy levels, physical stamina, and also mood.

Thyroid hormone is related to metabolism and more amount of it lead to higher metabolism. This causes the following symptoms.

  1. Intolerance to heat
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. Nervousness and anxiety
  4. Inability sleep, as the mind is always excited
  5. Increased appetite (sometimes despite weight loss) due to higher metabolism
  6. Irregular menstrual cycles
  7. Palpitations (rapid, loud heartbeat)
  8. Irregular heartbeats (tachyarrhythmia)
  9. Fine tremors of the extended arms
  10. Breast enlargement in men, known as gynecomastia
  11. Extreme moodiness, causing irritability and anger
  12. Inability to focus and concentrate
  13. General fatigue and shortness of breath with any exertion
  14. Increased frequency of bowel movements

In addition, the eye symptoms are quite diagnostic including:

  1. Protrusion of the eyes (exophthalmos), giving an impression that they are going to fall out
  2. Double vision
  3. Excessive tearing
  4. Increased irritation in the eyes

Diagnosis: The first symptom would be the presence of an enlarged thyroid gland (front of the neck above the collarbone), and the some of the above symptoms would be present.
In addition, tests to check for thyroid gland functioning including T3 and T4 levels would reveal increased amounts of hormone in the blood stream.
As a confirmatory test, the radioactive iodine uptake test also is done, which will indicate increased uptake by the thyroid gland. This indicates that the gland is functioning at an increased pace and requires additional iodine for the production of thyroid hormones.

Treatment: There are two approaches to it, one to control the symptoms and the other to control the thyroid gland per se.

  1. Beta blockers are very useful in controlling rapid heart rate and anxiety.
  2. Prednisone may be used to control eye irritation and swelling
  3. Antithyroid drugs are used to control the production of thyroid
  4. Radioactive iodine is given orally to control excessive thyroid production
  5. In severe cases, thyroid gland may be surgically removed partially or completely

Graves’ disease is not life-threatening and once symptoms are controlled, the patient’s quality of life improves drastically. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist.

Hi looking at your medications for controlling blood sugar there are enough oral anti daibetics. If still control is not achieved, then it is better to switch or add insulin to the therapy. That will help you to attain much better control of diabetes.

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.

Hi I'm Irshad want to know how I control my sugar level bcoz I have diabetic patient.
I recommend to control your sugar level 1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.
