What are the main symptoms of diabetes and how it can be cured and what exercise useful to cure it.
Mr Azad, There are mainly 2 types of diabetes T1 and T2. Most common variety is T2 DM, occurring due to deficiency of Insulin , secreted by beta cells of pancreas or resistance to its action or both. Plus being over weight and inactivity contribute to it. Usually does not cause any symptoms, hence many persons do not come to know they have diabetes. When fully developed may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. This disease can only be controlled by taking proper drugs or insulin injections. There is no cure for it. Treatment has to be for lifetime. Person has to adapt a modified lifestyle like : taking restricted diet matching ideal body weight, exercising regularly, avoiding too much of sweets, junk foods, pastries, alcohol and smoking. Exercising 1 hour a day, consuming more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Mr. Lybrate-user, with diabetes, having a weight of 94 kgs, is not really good. It means he has a bmi of 32.52 kgs/m2, which is grade 1 obesity. This itself contributes to increased glucose level or not getting enough control on blood glucose. Taking home made pomegranate juice is fine, but there is should be no sugar in it, plus quantity should be limited. Also blood glucose should be in good control. At 170 cms height and with 70 years age, ideal body weight should be 63 kgs. Please keep that in mind. Thanks.

You have to get good diabetic control and need to take vitamins as you have peripheral neuropathy from diabetes which is the cause of your problems. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

Ayurvedic Approach Towards Hypothyroidism

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Ayurvedic Approach Towards Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a hormonal disorder caused by reduced amounts of thyroid hormone. It is more common than hyperthyroidism and affects women more than men. Iodine is a main ingredient of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and iodine deficiency leads to hypothyroidism.

TSH is required for effective metabolism and reduced amount leads to affecting overall metabolism of the body and causing the following symptoms.

  1. Slow pulse
  2. Weight gain
  3. Reduced attention/concentration span
  4. Intolerance to cold
  5. Hoarseness of voice
  6. Irritability
  7. Inability to concentrate
  8. Depression/low mood
  9. Fatigue
  10. Swollen face and droopy eyes
  11. Dry skin
  12. Mental
  13. Premenstrual tension
  14. Muscular pain

Ayurveda believes that this is due to an imbalance between the 3 body systems - vata, pita, and kapha. In hypothyroid people, the pita is supposed to be overpowered by kapha which reduces metabolism. 

Treatment is aimed at bringing out balance between the two.

The various Ayurvedic components include:
Panchakarma and external therapies like Vamana, shirodhara, virechana, basti, udwarthana, Kashaya Seka are shown to play a significant role in managing symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Activities: 

Specific Asanas and Pranayamas that are directed at the thyroid have been proven to be beneficial.

  1. The most effective asana is sarvangasana or the shoulder stand. It improves blood flow to the thyroid and thereby improves its function. Matsyasana, surya namaskara, pavan muktasana, and halasana are also beneficial for hypothyroid patients.
  2. Ujjayi is the most common pranayama which acts on the throat area and stimulates reflexes in this area. &#x00a0;Nadi shodhana pranayama also is proven to have beneficial effects on the metabolism.

Internal remedies:

Appetizers and digestive agents are given to improve metabolism. These include herbs and whole grains and specific food products including dairy products.

Food Changes: 

Food has a major role to play, and some of the do's and don't's are as follows.

  1. Increase water consumption, preferably warm water, to improve digestion
  2. Include more iodine-containing foods like white onions, fish, shellfish
  3. Include more whole fibers like brown rice, barley, green gram, Bengal gram, cucumber, and sugarcane juice
  4. Increase consumption of milk and milk products
  5. Avoid sour food items
  6. Herbal products recommended for hypothyroidism include kanchanara, (purple mountain ebony), jatamansi, shilajita, gokshura, Brahmi, and punarnava
  7. Apply a paste of jalakumbhi which helps by supplying iodine to the goiter directly
  8. Jalakumbhi juice can also be consumed daily (11 to 22 g)
  9. Coconut oil, being rich in medium chain fatty acids, increases the body's metabolism and helps in managing symptoms of hypothyroidism

Lifestyle Changes: In addition to the above, meditation and regular exercises to maintain a healthy lifestyle, reduce stress, and manage weight have shown to help control symptoms to a large extent.

Hypothyroidism is a chronic condition but can be managed with a combination of food, exercise, and lifestyle changes.

Secondary Infertility - How To Overcome It

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Secondary Infertility - How To Overcome It

Secondary infertility is a condition characterized by the inability to get pregnant, in spite of a successful pregnancy in the past. Usually, after a conception, a woman feels confident about her second conception as well. However, this might not always be the case. This condition can be very frustrating for couples, and can be traumatic for some.

Mental issues such as anxiety, shame, depression and guilt can affect both the partners for being unable to conceive the second time.

Causes:

The causes of secondary infertility are:

  1. Certain complications resulting from previous pregnancies.

  2. Problems in production of sperm in men or impaired delivery of the sperm.

  3. Damage to the fallopian tubes or other ovulation disorders in women.

  4. Physical changes in the body owing to age, weight and usage of certain medications.

Procedures to Overcome Secondary Infertility:

In order to overcome secondary infertility, these tips can come in handy:

  1. Consult a fertility specialist: If you have been facing this problem for a while now, consult a reputed fertility specialist. The doctor will be able to guide you through the steps you must take and also diagnose any underlying condition. Once the condition is diagnosed, if any, then he can zero in on a treatment course.

  2. Change your diet: If you have been following a diet that misses out on some important nutrients and vitamins, especially Vitamin D that is so crucial for easing the process of conception and reproduction, sit up and rectify it. Eat well balanced meals with a healthy mix of nutrients, so that the body is well nourished and the reproductive system functions optimally.

  3. Exercise regularly: With age, physical activity tends to go on a downward spiral, making you prone to weight gain. Obesity can hamper one’s plans of conception; so if the weighing scale is on the heavier side, then take immediate steps to correct it. Simple exercises such as walking or jogging, done regularly, can help keep weight within optimal levels. It will also help reduce stress levels that will ultimately boost the health of hormones related to reproduction.

What are the symptoms diabetes and what are the precautions or cure for diabetes.
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.
