Musli is a propreitary ayurvedic preparation supposedly treating erectile dysfuntion. Being an allopathic doctor, my knowledge of ayurveda is limited, but one thing is certain that if the product is purely herbal without high heavy metal content, there would not be any side effects.

How far ayurveda can help is doubtful and you may taking risk. Howeverr you have to check regularly and make sure you get good control.See the ayurveda line of treating,but you have to very careful before stopping allopathy and completely changing to this. Any further doubts in health, can be asked privately. Following are the Ayurvedic measures to control and maintain optimum cholesterol levels: Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Start your day with fresh fruits and grains such as oats that are high in soluble fiber. Minimize consumption of animal products including dairy products. This is because animal foods are high in saturated fatty acids and dietary cholesterol. Consume fish viz salmon, sardine and tuna as well as oysters, clams and mussels. These help lower LDL and improve HDL. Restrict consumption of Omega-6 rich oils such as corn oil and safflower oil. Instead, use olive oil, sesame oil and rapeseed oil that have ‘good fat’. Eat a lot of anti-oxidant foods such as strawberries, apples, nuts, carrots, broccoli and spinach. Use turmeric and curry leaves when cooking dishes. They have cholesterol lowering properties. Ayurvedic remedies to fight cholesterol: 1. Boil water with 2 tsp coriander seed. Strain and drink this water twice daily. It helps reduce cholesterol, flushes out toxins, and improves digestion. 2. Guggulu (Commiphora mukul) is effective in lowering cholesterol. Buy it from any reputed Ayurvedic store and use it as per instructions on the container. 3. Grill 1 or 2 small cloves of garlic and take it daily with your main meal. 4. Take 1 to 2 capsules per day of Arjun (Terminalia arjuna) extract available in a capsule form. Arjun is rich in co-enzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) that helps lower LDL cholesterol and enhances HDL recovery. Keep in personal touch.

Mr. Lybrate-user, she has to continue taking thyroxine for life time. Dosage may change depending upon tsh levels. Usually on treatment to achieve good control of hypothyroidism, tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level goes up, then dose may have to be increased. Plus she should exercise regularly so as to avoid weight increase. Also follow all instructions regarding avoiding certain foods. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user Akabar, Hair loss is very common in Hypothyroidism and it is usually the last symptom to resolve. On treatment it is essential that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then only all the symptoms are in check. So please see what is the present TSh level. Thanks.

Ideally one should not take alcohol whether diabetic or not. In diabetics it can cause hypoglycemia as per ada a diabetic patient can take 1-2 pegs a day and I do not think there is any relation with cholesterol lowering medicine.

Please specify as what is 135 and 170. If it is the fasting and post meals sugars. Then both are high. Even though the blood sugars are suggestive of diabetes, the blood sugars are not very high. So I would suggest you to take a diabetic diet and a do some light excercise like brisk walking for 30 mins and repeat sugars after 1 month. Diabetic diet is mainly a diet which avoids sugar containg foods and drinks. Reduce the rice intake. Take more of vegetables.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism slows down metabolic activity and weight gain starts occuring. So it is very essential to maintain tsh levels around 3 to 4 milli units/l, if efforts to reduce weight have to be successful. If she has started taking 50 mcg per day, then tsh should be checked after 6 weeks, if the level remains higher than recommended then further increase may be required. Plus patient also should take the tablets early morning on empty stomach and nothing should be taken for next one and half hour to two hours. Plus should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Do not use refined flour like maida. Exercise daily for at least one hour. Thanks.
