Dear Sir,
I have diabetes. Which medicine suitable for me ?
My sugar Level 300 to 400.
Taking oral antidiabetic drugs initially when your pancreas is already stressed vl create unhealthy living after few years. Kindly do a hba1c test and if its too high then get started on insulin for first 3 months. The best way is this. Tests to b taken are lipid profile renal function test fbs; ppbs; hba1c urine analysis.

Hello, If hypothyroidism is well controlled with TSH level between 3 to 4 mU/L, all the symptoms including hair fall are controlled. It is essential to get Thyroid test done at least once in 6 months. Because some times there is a possibility of deficiency increasing. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood glucose is high, (well over 200 to 300 mg/100 ml) then a considerable amount of glucose is lost in the urine. That causes weight loss. Once diabetes is controlled and blood glucose levels return to normal, weight stabilses. You may have lost weight when blood glucose level was not well controlled. If now it is in good control, weight may not be lost. So please give current details including hba1c% (actual number, do not say it is normal). Even other test results like tsh and thyroid hormone levels. Looking at those details I may be able to guide. Thanks.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

seeing the shape of the tablet in toilet is no indicaion that the whole tablet has come out. what happens is in the case of slow release or long acting tablets/capsules the shell is made in such a way where the medicine is released slowly at the intestines and doesnot get dissoloved in the gastric juices. that shell which comes out along with motion is some times seen as the tablet. if the drug has not gone in to your blood then there will not be any controle on the blood sugar. when you get your blood sugar tested there will be desired levels of the sugar in blood. so donot worry and continue the usage of the tablet.

Home Remedies for Female Infertility (Sterility)

Home Remedies for Female Infertility (Sterility)
Home Remedies for Female Infertility (Sterility)

A woman is considered to have an infertility or sterility problem when she is unable to conceive a child after at least one year of unprotected, regular, well-timed intercourse.

Infertility also includes an inability to maintain a pregnancy or carry a child to live birth, as described by the World Health Organization.

Female infertility accounts for approximately one-third of all infertility cases, according to the American Pregnancy Association. In fact, it affects an estimated 48 million women worldwide.

In women, fertility can be affected by various health problems, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, anemia, thyroid problems, blocked fallopian tubes, Candida and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Other factors, such as heavy drinking, smoking, age (older than 35), obesity, excessive stress, a history of irregular or painful periods, a poor diet and intense physical training, can also increase a woman’s risk of infertility.

Experiencing infertility is emotionally painful for any woman and can lead to anxiety, isolation, extended periods of depression, and an inability to concentrate on daily tasks.

With techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or surrogacy, many women struggling with infertility are eventually able to have a child. However, these techniques are very expensive and some women simply cannot afford them.

There are natural and herbal treatments that also can help fight the root cause of infertility and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Lifestyle factors, such as regular exercise and following a healthy diet, can also help.

Tsh 4.3 milli units/ml is higher than upper limit (range 0.4 to 4.0mu/ml). Therefore, it is most likely you have the thyroxine deficiency. This condition can ead to a multiple of symptoms including hair loss. Hence, immediatley treatment with replacing of thyroid hormone has to be started, dosage can be decided on your weight and tsh levels. Please come up with a private question so that drug therapy can written by l me.

Mr. lybrate-user. Agar aap ka uric acid 5/2 mg/dl hai to accha hai. Usase taklif nahi honi chahiye. Aapane jo "Lenin Aso titre 400" karake likha hai usaka matalab muze nahi samaza. Uric acid kam karne keliys following food need to be avoided: Organ meat, red meat, certain fishes like herring, haddock, scallop, sardines, salmon, mussels and mushrooms. Eggs can be consumed, so also milk products with low fat. Alcohol and colas should be avoided. Uric acid bahoot logo me jyada rata hai, lekin sab ko usaki vajah se takalif nahi hoti. Agar joint panis hone lage to hi usaka ilaj karane ki jarurat hoti hai. Thanks.

How is your sugar control? have you checked hba1c level? joint pains may not be a direct consequence of diabetes. If sugar control is very good then better consult an orthopedic doctor. If control is bad first get the sugar in control and then try other treatment.

Please understand that Thyroid medicines are for life. There is no permanent cure available for this problem. She will have to take these medicines forever. Just ask her to treat these pills as friends for life. Just like taking roti and dal. These medicine also can be taken. Her weight is also high. She needs to reduce it else her sugar levels will go out of control. Follow these rules for diabetic diet. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

What causes hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? can iodine help this condition?
You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

lybrate-user, Subclinical hypothyroidism or clinical hypothyroidism, basically mean the thyroid gland is not producing adequate quantity of thyroxine. This is an essential hormone for development and day to day functioning of brain, as well as multiple vital metabolic reactions constantly going on in the body. Therefore, thyroxine supplement is essential. Once the condition occurs, it will stay for lifetime. There is no cure. Thanks.

What should be a ideal blood sugar level in Diabetes?

The Ideal is maintaining both Fasting post sugar at normal range. However more important is to maintain Gly. HB less then 7.0% (7.0%)

How do Gly. HB estimated?

Gly.HB is ideally done on instrument which has traceability to DCCT (Diabetes Control and Complication trial ) In simple word those techniques which are internationally accepted are to be a used for testing. Testing for Gly.HB. Does not require fasting. Gly.HB is never to be used for diagnosis of diabetes.
