Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.
The traditional oils which have been used for cooking in indian families are safe and good in diabetes. Mustard oil is an excellent preparation as it has an optimal ratio of PUFA and MUFA. Other newer oils in the market are backed by strong marketing strategies like CANOLA oil which is very similar to mustard oil but much costlier

You are prediabetic. Please take a herbal medicine nutridiabe - 1 tablet a day for 1 month and then after a gap of 1 month again for 1 month. Repeat like this for atleast one year. This will reduce/postpone your chances of getting diabetes. Nutridiabe is totally herbal medicine and very good for diabetics or for the people who are prone for diabetes in near future. For detailed discussion/suggestions, please send details privately. Thanks.

If it is in the normal range, you should continue at the same dose until advised by your treating physician. Some patients of thyroid cancer require tsh to be suppressed below normal levels, otherwise levels should be maintained in the normal range.

What was the main reason for gastric trabule and sugar etc what where the precautions to be take to prevent.

What was the main reason for gastric trabule and sugar etc what where the precautions to be take to prevent.
Hello, the two conditions mentioned are totally different. By saying" gastric trouble" is difficult to understand. But most often it hyperacidity, which is due more acid secreted in the stomach. There are many reasons why it may happen including irregular food habits, very high spicy food intake, repeated use of pain killers, alcohol use and smoking. Diabetes particularly t2 occurs due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus over weight and inactivity are major contributors. For preventing diabetes one has to exercise regularly, maintain normal weight and take a healthy and balanced diet. Consume good deal of fruits, green leafy vegetables and salads. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid alcohol and smoking. Thanks for the question.

, yogasans are always helpful. Even pranayam and asana together will be more beneficial. Surgery done long back need not have residual effect, it is usually in the patients mind that there is a problem. The body recovers very well. So she can definitely try both the asanas and pranayam. But it is equally important to have hypothyroidism in good control with tsh levels around 3 to 4 milli units/l. Thanks.

I had Hypothyroid from 2007. I was in medication of medicine name'Thyronorm', I recovered after medication till 6 months same year. I had my blood test this year in January, the level of TSH was normal but when I got my Blood test report for this month the level of my TSH decreased drastically leading to increase in my T3 and T4. I thought this is my exam stress or depression unknown of the checkup. I feel more of breathlessness, mood swings, hunger, thirst, anxious, body pain and low muscle density of contraction. Can you please confirm what is my health problem, Is it Hyperthyroidism?

First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as reproductive  and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Sometimes due to stress levels, diet sleep habit changes our through gland gers stressed too. During Eltroxin use this us monitored to avoid iatrogenic hyperthyroidism. Kindly share your recent and last TFT report Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting above 126 mg is diagnostic of diabetes. Similarly after food >200 mg. Your pp level is less than 200 mg. So better get hba1c% checked, if that is above 6.5%, then diabetes confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed, then there is no other option than taking appropriate anti diabetes medicine, to control blood sugar level. Unfortunately there are no home remedies or other treatments available to treat diabetes. Lifestyle changes will also be needed. You will have to stop taking sweets, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items like white bread, no sweetened aerated drinks, avoid fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Avoid alcohol and smoking totally. T2 diabetes does have familial spread, but can come without that too. Over weight and inactivity and junk food are main contributors. Thanks.

Ideally you should check your fasting blood sugar in the morning before taking breakfast(Not even tea). you should also take a light dinner in the previous night. You should check your postprandial blood sugar 2 hour after breakfast.

A diabetic person also need to attend counselling session along with their medications. Her symptoms are part of the illness. Besides this, it must be difficult for you to manage with your mother's doubting nature. It may not be possible to control everything but only those things that are under your control. Some things you may have to live with and in this case you need to know how to manage and cope with it. Counselling will help you to find this balance and tools to manage your issues in the best way. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism And its Homeopathic Remedies!

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism And its Homeopathic Remedies!

Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in your body. Hypothyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland of your body is unable to produce the thyroid hormones like T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Hypothyroidism can occur due to the inflammation of the thyroid gland or as a result of previous thyroid treatments, where a major portion of the thyroid producing cells has been removed. Hypothyroidism is more common in women. But, it can develop in any person irrespective of age or sex.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are as follows:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Increased feeling of cold
  3. Dryness of skin
  4. Constipation
  5. Depression
  6. Obesity
  7. Increased blood cholesterol level
  8. Your muscles may be become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
  9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, but it may vary from person to person. Hypothyroidism is a very common problem and homeopathy offers a very safe, painless and effective treatment for hypothyroidism.

The following are few of the homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism:

  1. Calcarea carbonica: This medicine is advised to people suffering from obesity and increased sensitiveness to cold temperature.
  2. Sepia officinalis: This medicine is suggested to people suffering from irregular menstrual cycle and increased sensitivity to cold.
  3. Nux vomica: Nux vomica is prescribed when the patient shows symptom of depression.
  4. Lycopodium clavatum: This medicine is given to people having gastric troubles or encountering excessive hair fall.

Along with these, there are various other medicines such as Iodium, thyroidinum, spongia, lycopus and lapis albus. But it is highly recommended for you to visit a homeopathic physician to receive correct advice before taking any medication by yourself.
