Normal diet but restriction of spices. Maintain sugar levels so fissures get healed, as you know diabetes delayed healing.

I am recently diagnosed sugar and using meteor in 1g daily one. I would like use IME-9. Kindly suggest dosage.
I would advice you to continue with meteor. Metformin is the first drug of choice in any new diabetic. It has many advantages. It also reduces insulin resistance and provides slowing of disease progression.

Please see that four tablets may be too much, and vicks action 500 is not safe, simply do salt water gurgle instead of vicks action 500.

Exclusive Breast Feeding !!!

MBBS, Apollo Hospitals
General Physician, Indore

Breastfeeding or nursing is the feeding of babies and young children with milk from a woman's breast. Health professionals recommend that breastfeeding begin within the first hour of a baby's life and continued as often and as much as the baby wants. During the first few weeks of life babies may nurse roughly every two to three hours. The duration of a feeding is usually ten to fifteen minutes on each breast. Older children feed less often. Mothers may pump milk so that it can be used later when breastfeeding is not possible. Breastfeeding has a number of benefits to both mother and baby, which infant formula lacks.

Deaths of an estimated 820,000 children under the age of five could be prevented globally every year with increased breastfeeding. Breastfeeding decreases the risk of respiratory tract infections and diarrhea, both in developing and developed countries. Other benefits include lower risks of:

Breastfeeding may also improve cognitive development and decrease the risk of  obesity in adulthood.
Mothers may feel pressure to breastfeed; however in the developed world children generally grow up normally when bottle feed

Benefits for the mother include less blood loss following delivery, better uterus shrinkage, weight loss, and less postpartum depression

Breastfeeding delays the return of menstruation and fertility, a phenomenon known as lactational amenorrhea. Long term benefits for the mother include decreased risk of breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Breastfeeding is often less expensive than infant formula. 

Health organizations, including the world health organization (who), recommend only breastfeeding for six months. This means that no other foods or drinks other than possibly vitamin D are typically given. After the introduction of foods at six months of age, they recommend continued breastfeeding until at least one to two years of age. Globally about 38% of infants are only breastfed during their first six months of life
In the united states, about 75% of women begin breastfeeding and about 13% only breastfeed until the age of six months. Medical conditions that do not allow breastfeeding are rare.
Mothers who take certain recreational drugs and medications should not breastfeed. 
Smoking, limited intake of alcohol, and coffee are not reasons to avoid breastfeeding.

PCOD And Homoeopathy

PCOD And Homoeopathy

Pcos is a syndrome disease defined by a collection of signs and symptoms. The symptoms of pcos that one patient experiences can be very different from the symptoms of another patient. If you have two or more of the following symptoms, you need to have a thorough checkup to determine if you need pcos treatment:
Irregular or missing menstrual periods, infertility, excess or unwanted body or facial hair growth, thinning hair on the scalp, weight problems, often including weight gain around the waist, skin problems, including skin tags, darkening skin and acne


Complications of pcos
The common pcos symptoms are difficult enough for most women, but some will experience further complications, including:
Diabetes, elevated insulin levels or insulin resistance, heart and blood vessel problems, uterine cancer, sleep apnea
Each of these problems can be life threatening, which is why treatment for pcos is so important.

Lifestyle and prevention
One of the best treatments for pcos is a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet low in refined carbohydrates is important, as this can help regulate blood sugar levels. Exercise can also help the body regulate insulin and keep excess weight off. Losing weight is challenging with pcos, but doing so can help reduce the male hormone levels in the body, and some women will begin to ovulate naturally. With a proper diagnosis, lifestyle changes and pcos treatment, women can get relief from this condition and the overwhelming health problems it can cause.
Homoeopathy offers permanent solution for this syndrome, the medicine is selected based on symptom totality and individualisation, some of the medicines for pcod are graphites, lachesis, calcarea carb, lycopodium, nux vomica, sepia, ignatia, staphysagria.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 8.2 mU/L, is high, but still falls in the subclinical category. No treatment is advocated at this level. However, if a person has any of the troublesome symptoms associated with that condition are present then treatment is given. So please let me know if you have any symptoms. Thanks.

There is lot of info on net but selection should be as per medical history, body nature and availability of certain herbs. As a primary measure, karela powder (or cap. Karela), methidana seeds or powder, turmeric powder, shigru (sahinjana) and meshashringi, manjishtha capsules/ powder should be used to address both the problems. Prolonged use will show curing trends without side effects.
