Hello, mantoux test is not worth doing now. Sputum for afb may not be positive always, for sputum test to be positive there should be at least 10 to the power 4 organisms to get detected. So we need to go along with ct scan. If you are from metropolitan city you can try to get gene expert test on sputum which is more sensitive than microscopy and gives result in 2 hrs. Other is sputum culture and sputum culture for tuberculosis. Sputum for gram stain we need to give antibiotics and see for response.

I am suggesting you homoeopathic medicine. Take Kali Bich 30 3 doses at the interval of 1 hour for a day and then report after 1 week. Ideally it will be more advisable to consult properly. So that best medicine can be selected.

I am suffering from sinusitis from the last 10 years how can it be cured any medicine you would like to suggest?

Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
The fact that you have sinusitis for the past 10 years have you got a ct scan done to rule out which of the sinuses are involved. A nasal endoscopic examination is a must to find out whether you have a deviated nasal septum or an enlarged inferior turbinates. Only after this the treatment can start the medical or surgical line.

I am 28 years old girl. I have diagnosed with TB although I had never smoked. I am eating medicine regularly but have few doubts. I will be glad if you can answer me otherwise I will be depressed like always: 1. Once I will complete my medication, is there any after effects of this disease or medicine? 2. Will it impact on pregnancy/child if I will plan later after curing? 3. I have only 1 day bleeding in menstruations from 1-2 years. Can you suggest what should I do? Regards.

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Miss lybrate-user, It all depends upon your immunity. If your immunity is good you can fight every disease easily. Immunity depends upon good mental and physical health. Smoking is one of reason for low immunity. Generally TB medications affect our liver. So take care of liver by taking liver protecting drugs. Secondly your diet should be nutritious enough to avoid any side effects of the disease and drugs. Take plenty of liquids including milk daily. You have safe pregnancy after completing the course. Regarding menstruation problem you should consult the gynecologist. Anaemia is one of the reason for scanty menses.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu 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 Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

I have fever and cough it is too worry matter for this and too much tension so just help me so soon plz.

Homeopath, Raebareli
I have fever and cough it is too worry matter for this and too much tension so just help me so soon plz.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also soak a washcloth in cool tap water, wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

I Undergone general anesthesia for surgery and spinal anesthesia fr appendicitis, I faced breathing problems two tyms for 30 min n lyk fits, nw I am pregnant nw I hav to undergone anesthesia I am worried n scared abt anesthesia, wats wrng wit my body wt anesthesia?

MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Surat
Reaction to anaesthetic drug may be the cause. But there is no way to confirm before hand. It is natural that you are scared of anaesthesia, once you have faced problems. Now that you are pregnant, it is not always necessary to undergo lscs (caeserian) delivery. If you can undergo normal delivery, there is no need for any anaesthesia. You must inform your treating doctor about the episode. If at all you require anaesthesia, your anaesthetist will take extra preventive steps. But there is no way to predict and prevent such events before occurence. Only when some specific cause is known it can be prevented. But if you may not require anaesthesia, i. E. If you undergo normal delivery than there is no worry.

Homeopathic Treatment for Asthma:

Here is where homoeopathic treatment and homoeopathic specialists step in. Homeopathy is the only stream of medicine that is equipped to deal with asthma and cure it a 100%. The recurrence of the attacks caused by Asthma can not only affect the general health of a patient but also affects the quality of life they lead. Sudden Asthma attacks can lead to some unfavourable situations, such as-

  1. Hospitalization
  2. Severe weakness
  3. Deadly health hazards
  4. Chances of severe injury, etc.

Research shows that Homeopathic treatment comes in as a relief or a preventing measure to all of these unfavourable occurrences caused by asthma.

Does Homeopathy Really Heal Asthma?
The following advantages of homoeopathic treatment help prove why homoeopathy is the best cure for asthma

  1. Homeopathic Constitutional Treatment not only prevents these extremities mentioned above but also slowly and steadily works on curing the condition completely.
  2. The same treatment procedure, allows a specialist to understand the severity of the condition, and thus prescribe the best natural homoeopathic medicines to treat asthma.
  3. The medicines prescribed by a homoeopathic specialist are all natural and work towards curing asthma permanently by moderating the functioning and quality of your immune system.
  4. This ensures the stabilisation of the immune system that becomes over-reactive during asthma.

According to years of research and treatment records, Homeopathy does help to heal asthma completely.

Medication and Treatment Extended by Homeopathy:
Homoeopathic medicines are all natural and pose no side effects to any patients. Since there are a variety of asthmas, the medicines used to deal with each kind also vary. Again, there are a few homoeopathic medicines that are designed to treat and permanently heal one and all kinds of asthmas. There are some these medicines that are prescribed by some of the best Homoeopathic specialists to their patients with asthma.

Some of these homoeopathic medicines include

  1. Natrum Sulph
  2. Sambuccus
  3. Arsenic Album
  4. Kali Bichrome

While these can be termed as some of the most widely accepted and prescribed homoeopathic medicines for Asthma, they are not the only ones. There are also other medicines that are put to use. The prescribed medicine can differ in accordance with the intensity and kind of asthma that an individual is dealing with. Here is where it becomes important to visit a specialist homoeopathic doctor and take his consultancy and not depend on own intuitions and preferences. Cure asthma permanently with homoeopathy.

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

I am suffering from dry cough from last two weeks, Can you suggest what should be done?

Acupressurist, Chandigarh
Dear Harish लगभग 10 ग्राम भुनी हुई हुई फिटकरी तथा 100 ग्राम चीनी को बारीक पीसकर आपस में मिला लें और बराबर मात्रा में चौदह पुड़िया बना लेते हैं। सूखी खांसी में एक पुड़िया रोजाना 125 मिलीलीटर गर्म दूध के साथ सोते समय लेना चाहिए। इससे सूखी में बहुत लाभ मिलता है।

Avoid curd totally. Go for salted buttermilk instead added with a pinch of black pepper. Always prefer warm water to drink after meals never take curd at night. Avoid pickles and very sour items. Do pranayam daily 30 min do cardio work out daily under supervision. Cardio work out helps increase lung capacity. Dry roast haldi powder (without oil) in a vessel till it appears dark yellow. Store it. Take 1 tsp of this daily at night with warm water/warm milk. Always take low fat milk/cow milk for drinking/tea purpose. Avoid exposure to cold weather. Avoid stress by meditating everyday.
