continue your thyroid medicine.and High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

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. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have not yet started treatment for diabetes, then please start immediately. There is no option. Along with drugs, take a planned restricted diet and exercise regularly for 1 hour a day. Diabetes is confirmed when FBS >126 mg, or PP >200 mg and HbA1c%>6.5. Thanks.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Infertility

Infertility: you are not alone

I meet many ladies everyday who are fighting with infertility. Some express their desire to have kids and pain associated with infertility openly and some are shy to share anything. People make allowances for all sorts of grief. Infertility is a loss of staggering proportions. A feeling of being incomplete, a feeling of deep emptiness from inside.

Those brave ladies who experience it, it can be deep, incomprehensible, painful bewildering and mind-numbing. Its not easy loss to define or put into words. Not having a child is something which makes them deeply hurt. I am sharing my experience in the clinic today, a wonderful lady, very focused and warm person. Expressed her feelings openly with an heavy heart. This emotional turmoil may be faced by many ladies. Just sharing so that many of us can identify with her and get a positive attitude and rest of us might provide them enough positivity and strength to lead a normal life.
We all will agree that it is sad to not be able to have children, the idea of feeling desperation and wild crippling grief could seem dramatic, excessive and even weak.
She told me that most common response from the people I meet is the word' kum se kum tumhe cancer, to nahi hai, tumne baccha to nahi khoya hai, koi aur serious problem to nahi hai na' the word' kum se kum' (at least) can be very disheartening many times.
We all are different and we deal with our emotional status differently. According to her she was not very happy with the atleast concept of sympathizing. 
She told, many times in her fight with infertility she needed positivity around me, needed someone to sit down and hold her hand and say" i'm so sorry, this must hurt so much. I'm here for you" anyone who does not have mockery in eyes, have deep love and compassion in every word and the very fact that they allowed my grief to exist and they heard me was healing. So simple thing which can make her energized.
Unfortunately, more often, the unintentional message she heard was that of her sadness being undermined, made less by the words "at least"
Even I was thinking how could her personal pain possibly measure up against all the greater tragedies in the world?
I found her eyes becoming wet as she described how she cried rivers over the little boys and little girls who would never have her smile or her husband's eyes. She began to have dreams of stumbling down a difficult forest path leading to a pitch black lake where a child was floating face down in the water. Even she wanted to hug her child and feel the simple pleasure of being a mom. Even I felt my heart go for her. Becoming a mother can be the most happy experience of anyone's life.
When I was talking to her I realized that there is nothing trivial about grief over infertility. A person can grieve the loss of their dream of a biological family as honestly and deeply as someone else can grieve the loss of a child or parent or partner or their health.
There is no" at least" when it comes to the breaking of the human heart, there is no need to try to measure one person's pain against another to see who is worthy of feeling grief and who isn't.
If some one from your near and dear ones is fighting with infertility then assure that they have the emotional and mental support from you. A real guidance and taking the medical help at right time can do wonders. But we all require some amount of sensitivity towards their pain. Rest can be done by doctors and medical professionals. The only thing is power of positivity and feeling that someone understands their pain.

Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin resistance id mainly caused by increasing body fat. Hence, being over weight or being obese is one of the main causes. A lot of fat collects around organs inside the abdomen, (around liver, kidney and gut) this affects insulin action. Once that happens glucose level tends to go up. Resultant hyperglycemia causes glucotoxicity and further increases insulin resistance. Therefore, weight reduction, diet control and regular exercise (exercise helps muscles to use more glucose, helps reduction of blood glucose), are specifically helpful. That is why inan obese or over weight person weight reduction by even 5 to 8% produces significant blood glucose reduction as it improves insulin action. Thanks.

Hi, all these reports are normal. Burning feet syndrome can be inherited, or it can be caused by pressure being put on the nerves. Links also exist between this syndrome and diseases such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis; links are also believed to exist between this syndrome and vitamin b (specifically pantothenic acid) deficiencies and renal failure. Another cause could be plantar fasciitis which is an inflammation (irritation and swelling with presence of extra immune cells) of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot that causes heel pain and disability. Medication: need to find out the cause of burning. Meantime, take becosule (b-complex)/ 1 cap. Once daily for 3 months only. Revert.

Thyroid is an endocrine gland situated on the adam's apple on the throat. This secretes hormones like t3 and t4 (thyroxine) which are essential for all the metabolic activities of the body. Some times it does no produce the hormone leading to hypothyroidism, when the person feels weak, weight increases, cold can not be tolerated, lethargy occurs and there may be many other complaints. The condition is moe common in females compared to males. It can occur at any age. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage daily for life time.

This could be due to pcos (excessive weight) and insulin resistance. Get your insulin fasting and hba1c test done. Diet and exercise is key to loose weight. Consult any diabetologist for weight loss medication if you are not able to loose weight even after 3 months of diet and exercise.
