Multivitamins & Infertility

Nutrients that can help to support a healthy conception include:

  • Antioxidants “ protect cells from damage by free radicals in environmental and other toxins
  • Coenzyme (Q10) “ an important antioxidant and ˜energy nutrient within every cell
  • Vitamin E “ an antioxidant that may promote circulation to the reproductive system, including to the placenta
  • Vitamin C “ an antioxidant important within the ovary itself. As the developing egg needs vitamin C to mature and ovulate, more vitamin C is used up around the time of ovulation
  • Mixed carotenoids “ Vitamin A (retinoid) is involved in creating DNA. In small amounts it is essential for healthy foetal development, particularly for the immune system and eyes. However, you should avoid taking too much Vitamin A
  • Manganese “ involved in enzyme functions that have antioxidant effects and transfer genetic information
  • Zinc “ one of the most important nutrients for a healthy reproductive system. Involved in sexual development, ovulation and the menstrual cycle
  • Selenium “ an antioxidant that supports normal conception
  • Omega-3 fatty acids “ improving omega-3 fatty acids ensures that a woman’s fat tissue stores retain a reserve of these fatty acids for the developing foetus, a healthy pregnancy and optimally fed newborn
  • B-Vitamins “ Vitamin B12, B6 and folate are three B vitamins significant for the reproductive system

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The products mentioned are having mainly carbohydrates and considerable amount of sugar, hence not advisable for a person with diabetes. There are some protein powders available specially made for diabetes patients, those can be considered. However, first and foremeost is achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. With that kind of control patient feels fairly energetic. Plus diet should include good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, taking metformin while breast feeding the baby, produces no effects on baby's blood glucose level. A number of clinical studies have reported that metformin taken while breast feeding a baby does not affect the baby adversely at all. So you need not worry about it. Thanks for the question.

Lybrate-user, if you have hypothyroidism, then if that is not well controlled then weight gain will continue. So first thing is to bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units/l, by aking appropriate dose of thyroxine. Then your efforts to control weight will be successful. It is not correct to say once weight gain occurs then it can not be lost.

This fasting blood sugar is not in diabetic range. And AST is only mildly high. Do not worry, repeat your fasting blood sugar and also get pp blood sugar and HbA1c if abnormal consult a Physician.

There is a possibility that at least in part your irregular periods are due to thyroid dysfunction. Therefore if you take the right dose of thyroxine it should get better .Regesterone or primulut-n do not cause any issues with getting pregnant in the future

Dear lybrate-user your mother's sugar is high and that is affecting her many organs including her eyes. High blood sugar levels give rise to multiple problems in body and its not just temporary control of sugar which achieves results but consistent control that matters the most. Pls understand that to help your mother avoid bigger problems in future you need to make dietary adjustments, exercise protocols and medicine optimization for which you follow certain principles. Keep fasting blood sugar below 110 and pp i. E after 2 hrs meals blood sugar below 160. For this cut on all high calorie foods. Ask her to exercise. And follow advice for medicines.

Yes, this could well be a fissure. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

What's her tsh level? if it is normal then no worries. Regarding whether fasting is required or not, there are conflicting studies. In my personal experience of more than 1000 patients, tsh level is often at a lower level when measured after meals. So, I would suggest that you check it after overnight fasting.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned are very high, suggesting totally uncontrolled diabetes. If diabetes is remains uncontrolled, then it can cause serious complications affecting eyes, kidney, peripheral nerves, blood supply to legs, heart and problem with sex organ. Therefore, it is essential to control the glucose levels effectively and early. Ideally FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. For better treatment you should consult a good diabetologist either at your place or if you are interested in online consultation, then I can guide you in controlling the condition effectively. For that you will have to come in private conversation (paid consultation), with following details: FBG, Pp blood glucose, HbA1c% (which have been mentioned), weight, height, extent of daily physical activity, lipid profile, BP readings, dietary pattern and details of current medications if any. Based on those details I will be able to guide specifically in terms of drugs, diet and exercise and help in controlling the glucose levels. Thanks.

Thank you for the query. From your question I gather that you are already on glycomet trio (2 mg/500 mg/0.3 mg) thrice a day. This implies that you are on quite a high dose of oral anti diabetic agents. However, your sugar levels tend to remain high. I would like to enquire about your hbaic as that will give a better picture about your control. At this stage I would advice you to modify your diet (1400-1500 kcal) per day and opt for a exercise regimen (30 min per day for 5 days a week). Please get your eyes and renal functions checked. I would also advise you to monitor your blood sugar levels at home with a glucometer if possible.
