Conservative measures to decrease straining and constipation in hemorrhoids/piles many patients see improvement or complete reduction of many symptoms with conservative measures which can be tried at home. Warm baths bathing in tubs with warm water alleviates pain and severity of piles. Ice can also relieve the pain of acute thrombosis. The sitz bath can be tried for symptom relief. Sitz bath is done by sitting in a bowl of warm water to which salt is added. It is usually done for about 20 to 30 minutes twice or thrice a day. High fiber diet a high fiber diet includes more than 25 g of fiber per day. Many hemorrhoidal symptoms reduce when dietary changes are made. Addition of fiber supplements to already existing diet is a good plan. Toilet habit retraining and stool softeners patients should sit on the toilet seat only for the time required to evacuate the lower bowels. Persistent straining or prolonged sitting can lead to increased size of hemorrhoids. Stool softeners can be taken to soften stools if there is hard stools which can cause undue straining while going to toilet. Topical agents topical ointments and creams can be used to decrease itching and inflammation. Topical hydrocortisone can reduce some symptoms of piles but prolonged use is not recommended. Adequate water intake. Patients suffering from hemorrhoids should take adequate amounts of water which can ease the passage of stools.

Your sugar levels are definitely high. Is it fasting or post prandial? kindly inform the dosage of the medicines being taken. Please be on strict diabetic diet and go for regular one hour walk either in the morning or in the evening. Get your blood tesed for hba1c which gives you the previous three months average of your blood sugar. Only then other medications can be prescribed.

Vanajaji, the disorders related thyroid both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are not curable. They can only be controlled. Hypothyroidism is controlled by taking thyroxine tablets for life time. In case of hyperthyroidism, anti - thyroid drugs like neo - mercazole are usually used of 18 to 24 months, if hyperactivity is reduced or controlled then drug is stopped. Normal activity may remain for some time. If again hyper activity is resumed, then radio active iodine or surgery are the other options looked at. If thyroid activity is well controlled then getting conception and completing the preganncy normally is quite possible. If you have any doubts do come back. Thanks for the question.

It is always challenging to lose weight with thyroid disorder. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Most diet fails because they are low calorie and low fat. Instead of correcting metabolism, they make you feel low energy or makes you feel excessively hungry. To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customised approach. With customised lifestyle modification approaches, people over 100-150 kg are also losing weight for long term. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Go for brisk walks or jogging for 45 minutes every day. Best wishes.

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. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medication will depend upon blood sugar level.

Hi lybrate-user delayed period could be because of hormonal imbalance that is due to deranged thyroid levels. Please get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Mostly it would be negative only as you used double protection.
