Mr. Lybrate-user, to build muscle your diet has to have a bit more proteins is right. But most importantly you have to do specific strength building, muscle building exercise along with additional protein intake. 2 tea spoons of protein powder is hardly going to give any quantity required. It will be better if you consume 2 or 3 egg whites daily, that would definitely meet the additional need more adequately tether with powder.

What to do in asymptomatic gall stone disease?

If gallstones are detected incidentally, always go for surgery. As in diabetic patients, gallstones are not symptomatic. But it can cause complication in future. As stone can slip forward into common bile duct or it can cause pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).

Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.

Mr. lybrate-user Narayan, Creatinine of 1.4 mg / dl, good enough. There is no need to worry about it. Only if it goes still higher then there may be a need to consider reduction. Creatinine can be reduced by reducing protein intake to less than 0.6 g/kg/d and avoiding strenuous activity. Diabetes itself affects kidney function over the years. So strict blood glucose control also has to be maintained. Thanks.

Can Ayurveda Help With Fertility?

BAMS, MD - Ayurveda

Can Ayurveda Help With Fertility?

Infertility is a condition when a woman fails to conceive even after a year of unprotected regular sexual intercourse. If she is unable to carry the baby to term, it’s called infertility too. Mankind has made giant leaps in curing this condition. But something’s still lacking. This is where the ancient healing system of medicine Ayurveda comes in.

There are a number of reasons for infertility we know women can’t get pregnant if their partner’s sperm count is low or if they have obstructions in their reproductive system like blocked fallopian tubes or fibroids etc. But Ayurveda goes beyond all these. According to it, infertility arises when “shukra dhatu” which produces eggs in women and sperms in me, is weak due to lack of proper nutrition which may happen as a result of poor digestion, lack of balanced diet or due to a presence of ‘ama’ or toxins in the body.

Ayurveda also prescribes that sexual indulgence and promiscuity can cause infertility due to the decrease in shukra dhatu. Ayurvedic fertility enhancers

For men:

  1. Kapikacchu: A potent antioxidant, this medicine reduces oxidative damage to sperm. It is also an aphrodisiac and helps increase sperm count.
  2. Gokshura: Contains a precursor to testosterone, and thus improves sexual desire and sperm production.

For women

  1. Ashoka: It stimulates the endometrium in uterus and ovaries and aids ovulation.
  2. Lodhra: Cures female disorders which stop conception and increase levels of reproductive hormones like FSH and LH essential for conception.
  3. Shatavari: Nourishes ovum and increases fertility because it contain estrogen –like compounds.
  4. Gokshura: This herb is helpful for both men and women. It helps cure erectile dysfunction and is very effective in improving sperm count and motility. Whereas in women it works as a fertility tonic that stimulates the ovaries and thus cures PCOS, a leading cause of infertility in women.

What Ayurveda recommends is eating a diet rich in foods like ‘ghee’, milk, almonds, walnuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds to improve health and thus shukra that. Since ‘vata’ dosha is closely connected to the reproductive system in women, it should be regulated for proper ovulation. And so should be extra stress and worry in both men and women.

Other ways to cure infertility, especially in men, is to wear loose underwear, so that ‘pitta’ is controlled and the sperm production is good. This also ensures good quality of sperm. Ayurveda should never be practised by self. Always consult an expert who will prescribe the right medicines for infertility. Doing everything in balance is crucial too. So be mindful of what you eat, think, watch, read and eat right and develop a healthy body for getting rid of infertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Mr, if one has diabetes mellitus, then treatment with appropriate drugs is necessary for life time. There is no way to control raised blood sugar with out taking any anti - diabetes drugs. Life style changes are required to support the drug treatment. Thanks.

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.
Dear kindly specify whether these are fasting sugar values or post meals. As fasting 150 is very high and if post meals it falls in prediabetic range. Depending on that, tablet metformin would have to be started alongwith exercise and weight reduction.

Hi Doctor, Could you suggest which homeopathy medicine I shall take for gout. My Uric Acid level is 8.2.
Gout is an inflammatory condition of the joint .Gout results in an inflammation of the joint. This is due deposition of uric acid crystals in the joint spaces and or in the connective tissue of the joints. It is a very painful condition causing swelling redness heat pain and stiffness of the joint. Deposits of uric acid, called tophi can appear as lumps under the skin around the joints. Gout mainly affects the big toe but it can affect other joints like gout instep, ankles, heels, knees, wrists, fingers, and elbows Increased uric acid is not a disease and by itself is not dangerous. However, if excess uric acid levels lead to formation of crystals between the joints, gout can develop. In some individuals excess levels also lead to formation of kidney stones. Please remember not all who have high levels of uric acid, develop gout. Homoeopathic medicines can be a big boon for all those who suffer from high uric acid. These medicines work by reducing the uric acid? S overproduction by the body and accelerating the removal of this waste product from through the kidneys. Homoeopathic medicine Benzoic acid, Pulsatilla, lycopodium and Urtica Urens lead the homoeopathic table in curing the increased levels of uric acid. Another medicine that requires a special mention is Berberis Vulgaris. It is used when kidney stones form due to high levels of uric acid. Gout is also very effectively treated by homoeopathy. Ledum pal, colchicum, Benzoic Acid, Bryonia and Formica Rufa are very effective in treating gout. One big advantage that homoeopathy offers in the treatment of high uric acid is that once treated the relapse will not occur. This is also subjected to the condition that diet and Alcohol and weight are well controlled.

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms + Treatment

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms + Treatment

There are a number of lifestyle ailments that plague people around the world. Cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes are just a few of them. Diabetes means your blood sugar level, called glucose, is too high. Blood glucose is the main kind of sugar found in your blood and is supposed to be your main source of energy. Glucose originates from the food that you eat and is additionally made in your liver and muscles. Your blood supplies glucose to the rest of your body's cells to use as a source of energy.

Your pancreas are situated between your stomach and spine. It assists with absorption of glucose from food and discharges a hormone called insulin, into your blood. Insulin helps your blood transport glucose to all your body's cells. In some cases your body doesn't make enough insulin or the insulin doesn't work the way it ought to. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn't reach your cells.

The signs and symptoms of diabetes are as follows:

  1. Being extremely thirsty

  2. Urinating regularly

  3. Feeling hungry

  4. Feeling tired

  5. Getting thinner without attempting

  6. Wounds that mend gradually

  7. Dry, bothersome skin

  8. Feeling of pins and needles in your feet

  9. Losing sensation in your feet

  10. Hazy vision

Type 1 diabetes is found mostly in youngsters. In type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin or enough insulin because of the the body's vulnerable immune system. It protects you from contamination by getting rid of bacteria, infections, and other destructive substances.

Treatment for type 1 Diabetes:

  1. Taking regular injections of insulin

  2. Medicines as prescribed by the specialist

  3. Healthy food choices

  4. Being physically active

  5. Controlling your circulatory strain levels. Circulatory strain is the pressure of blood flow inside your veins.

  6. Controlling cholesterol levels

Type 2 diabetes can influence individuals at any age. It is known to affect moderately aged and elderly individuals. People who are overweight and inert are more prone to type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes normally starts with insulin resistance, a condition that happens when fat, muscle and liver cells do not utilise insulin to supply glucose to the body's cells to draw energy. Accordingly, the body needs more insulin to help glucose enter the cells. At such an instance, the pancreas start producing more insulin. Over the long haul, the pancreas do not make enough insulin when glucose levels increase, for example, after meals. If your pancreas can no more make enough insulin, you should treat your type 2 diabetes.

Treatment for type 2 Diabetes:

  1. Utilising diabetes prescriptions

  2. Settling on solid food decisions

  3. Being physically active

  4. Controlling your circulatory strain levels

  5. Controlling your cholesterol levels

  6. Weight loss is the most important if you are overweight. Avoid junk food and sugar, exercise regularly and take medicines on-time. 

  7. Regular follow-up to a physician is important

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I'm 24 diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I'm taking glicalz -m and overweight of 8 kgs please help Me any one how to...
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have already developed diabetes, then unfortunately it can not be reversed but can certainly be very well controlled and you can live an absolutely normal life. So do not get disappointed. It needs a bit of disciplined lifestyle to be followed. Which means taking restricted diet, that gives exact amount of calories based on your actual body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Plus taking appropriate medications. If there is change needed in the present treatment that should be done. So if you are interested please come with following details in a private conversation: present fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern, medications with dosage and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.
