If the parameters of your height and weight are mentioned correctly then I must say that you are obese and you need to lose weight. You have PCOD and hormonal imbalance due to excessive weight and vice- versa. Your aim should be reduce weight at the rate of 2--3 kg per month and lose 12--15 kg weight over a period of 6--8 months. Go to a gynaecologist who can counsel you about the importance of weight loss and start you with medicines for treatment of PCOD. At the age of 23, you can wait for 6-9 months for normalization of your hormones and then plan a pregnancy.

Gastrointestinal Complications Of Diabetes!

D ( Diabetology), AFIH, DNB (F.MEDICINE), MBBS
General Physician, Pune
Gastrointestinal Complications Of Diabetes!

Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects almost every part of your body. Of these, the digestive system is the most badly affected. While gastrointestinal disorders are commonly experienced by everyone, diabetics have a much higher risk of suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, gallstones and ulcers. Some of the most common gastrointestinal problems experienced by diabetics are:

  1. Gastroparesis: High blood sugar levels can damage the vagus nerve that controls the emptying of the stomach. As a result fo this damage, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work optimally leading to a condition known as Gastroparesis. This is a condition where the stomach is not able to empty itself properly and the digestion process is slowed down. Gastroparesis can cause bloating, nausea, pain in the abdomen, heart burn and a loss of appetite. It can also cause undigested food in the stomach to harden and form lumps that block food from moving into the intestines. This disease cannot be cured but can be managed with medication and a special diet.
  2. Ulcers: Stomach ulcers can be described as open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, oesophagus and beginning of the small intestine. These ulcers form as a result of bacterial infections. Diabetes weakens a person’s immune system thus reducing their ability to fight these infections and increasing the risk of developing ulcers. Diabetes also increases the risk of bleeding from these ulcers and secondary infections that may arise from it.
  3. Yeast infections: Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to yeast infections. This is aggravated by fluctuation in blood sugar levels and can extend from the mouth to the oesophagus. Common symptoms of this type of yeast infection are pain in the throat and difficulty swallowing. It may also cause heartburn and intestinal bleeding if left untreated.
  4. Celiac sprue: This condition creates gluten allergies and causes the inflammation and thinning of the small intestine’s mucosa. In some cases, this condition may interfere with the absorption of food and lead to diarrhoea and weight loss.
  5. Diabetic diarrhoea: Patients who have been suffering from diabetes for a few years may experience an increased urge to pass stools frequently. This is usually related to gastric problems in the colon which cause fluids to move at a faster than normal speed through the small bowel and colon. It may also be caused due to the secretion of fluids in the colon and improper absorption of food.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello I am 40 Yrs male and a Thyroid Patient from 20 Yrs. Kindly advise what dosage of Eltroxin should I take on TSH level at 8.04. Currently I am taking 100 mg dose per day empty stomach.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
You can continue taking the same dosage and bring some lifestyle changes to help your body work efficiently. Strive to eat only healhty food (more of fruits and vegetables everyday ). Avoid outside food and beverages. Start Yoga and pranayam and be physically active (routine exercise like walking and jogging etc ). Follow up regularly with your doctor. You can later add Homeopathy which is safe and gentle. You can contact me for further details about Homeopathic treatment if interested.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thyroid test results are fine, there is no problem with thyroid function. There is no medicine required for that at all. Since no mention is made about what problems you have, it is difficult to give any opinion. Thanks.

I am 27 years & faceing the high uric acid problem. Pls advice the treatment of plantar fasciitis.

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
For high uric acid take tablet zyloric 100 daily and after a week taper off painkillers and continue zyloric till your uric acid comes in normal range. Avoid non vegetarian food totally. Limit intake of milk and milk products, take small quantities of pulses. Avoid beans. Plantar fascitis takes its own time to heal. Give as much rest to foot as possible. Take painkillers regularly for few days and then only when needed. It can take few months to heal. If there is some problem in knee get it treated as it puts more pressure on foot.
