Can homeopathy treat a person with hypothyroidism with anti-tpo test resulting greater than 1300?

Can homeopathy treat a person with hypothyroidism with anti-tpo test resulting greater than 1300?
Thyroid is a hormonal organ. Hormones are signals in our body which effect various vital processes of the body. You can link them to traffic lights for the smooth and safe flow of traffic in the body. Unfortunately due to several known and unknown reasons, some hormonal organs like thyroid start to underperform or over perform leading to hypo or hyper function respectively. When we prescribe medicine for hypothyroid patients - we just provide supplementation of deficient hormone in the body. We currently have no medicine to cure the thyroid gland - we just have medicine to fulfil the hormone that was supposed to be manufactured by the thyroid gland. Since the requirement is daily - that is why the medicine is given daily. Since the requirement is lifelong- thats why the medicine is lifelong!

Swethaji, Hypothyroidism is to be treated for life time. There is no question of stopping the treatment It has to be continued for life time.Plus you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

7 Diabetes Related Skin Problems!

7 Diabetes Related Skin Problems!

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later; and in some cases, these skin problems serve as symptoms of diabetes. Although these skin problems can be cured easily if treated early, proper care must be administered at all times. Here are 7 skin conditions that affect diabetics:

1. Bacterial infection

Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.

2. Fungal infections

People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.


3. Tingling and itching

Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.

4. Skin problems related to neuropathy

Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.

5. Digital sclerosis

Digital sclerosis, a condition marked by tight, waxy, thick skin that develops on the back of the hand, is common among people who have type 1 diabetes. In this condition, the joints of the fingers get stiff and, thus, lose their mobility and elasticity. Skin of the toes, forehead and knees may also get affected.

6) Xerosis

Xerosis is another common skin condition that accompanies diabetes. In this condition, the skin becomes very dry and itchy.

7) Acanthosis nigricans

Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

You can cut down your weight by including fibre rich veggies (gourds) in your diet which will give you easy satiety also. Replace packed snacks and canned food stuffs which will contain extra oil and preservatives with raw veggies like cucumber/tomatoes.You can also include some fruits in your diet like guava, apple, pomegranate if it is less ripened ones so that your sugar level won't get affected. Stay away from all soft drinks and artificial sweeteners. Cut down oil in your diet and go for an unrefined wood pressed oils of local oilseeds like mustard oil/sesame oil/coconut oil for daily cooking. Include required amount of desi ghee and butter which will boost your immunity. Apart from your diet, your body activity level will also play a major role in your wt gaining. So be active for the whole day along with an hour of fresh air exercise also. Thus you can reduce your wt in a healthy way. And consult a good homoepath for diabetes to be treated gently and safely.

Diabetes and Oral Health- Tips For Diabetics

Diabetes and Oral Health- Tips For Diabetics

We know that diabetes can harm your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other important systems in your body. But did you know it can also cause dental and gum problems in your mouth?

The link between diabetes and oral problems is real, though lesser known. Diabetics are at a higher risk for periodontal or gum disease which is an infection of the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place.

Untreated periodontal disease can lead to pain on chewing and even tooth loss, if it’s left untreated. Gum disease can also more severe and take longer to heal if you are a diabetic.

Research also shows that alternatively, periodontal disease may also make it hard for you to control your blood glucose.

If your diabetes is not under control, you are more likely to develop problems in your mouth like-

  1. Dry mouth, a condition that happens when you do not have enough saliva—the fluid that keeps your mouth wet. It is a common symptom of undetected diabetes and can also cause mouth soreness, ulcers, infections, and tooth decay.
  2. Another problem diabetes can cause is a fungal infection called thrush or candidiasis because diabetes usually causes the glucose levels in your saliva to increase. And this encourages the fungus causing thrush to grow in your mouth, leading to painful white patches.
  3. When diabetes is not controlled, high glucose levels in your saliva also help harmful bacteria grow in your mouth. These bacteria combine with food particles to form a soft, sticky film called plaque which causes tooth decay. Plaque also comes from eating sugary and starchy foods.
  4. And some types of plaque cause tooth decay or cavities and other types of plaque cause gum disease and bad breath.
  5. Diabetics have a higher incidence of Gingivitis which causes unhealthy, red, inflamed gums. You need regular flossing as well as cleaning at the dentists to prevent it.

What can you do?

  1. You must keep your blood glucose under control to prevent mouth problems. Diabetics with poor blood glucose control get gum disease more often and more severely than diabetics whose blood sugar is under control.
  2. If you have diabetes, you should brush and floss every day and follow this up with regular dental check-ups.
  3. Call your dentist when you notice a problem in your mouth. Keep observing and checking your mouth regularly for any problems. Don’t ignore minor stuff like gum bleeding during brushing and flossing. And also notice dryness, soreness, white patches, or a bad taste in the mouth. All of these are big enough reasons to visit your dentist.
  4. Tell your dentist if your dentures suddenly don’t fit right or if your gums are sore.

Also, take care to quit smoking. Smoking makes gum disease worse and causes dry mouth which aggravates oral problems.

Needless to add, good blood glucose control is your best defence against the oral complications of diabetes like gum disease. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

A tsh level of 7 milli units is a subclinical hypothyroidism. So normally there is no treatment required. Only when tsh level goes over 10 milli units/ ml treatment is advocated. But sometime even at a lower level of tsh like yours, if t4 level is low, if there are any troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism then treatment si given.
