2 years back it was detected that I do have hypothyroidism. I continued ayurvedice treatment for almost 2 years however I have discontinued the treatment as the medicine was making me very lethargic and was also affecting my decision making skills. Is there a way I can control thyroid without medicine ?

Hello if one has hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroid hormone tables. There's no ayurvedic treatment. If you want to live normal then no option but to take tab thyronorm dosage will depend on your tsh levels.

Hello, I have no idea about ayurvedic medicine. A diabetic patient has to restrict his total caloric intake matching the needs based on sugar levels, weight and level of physical activity. The total diet that is decided should be better taken in 4 or 5 small portions in a day.

If your blood sugar levels are consistently around 85 -90 mg/100 ml, then there is no need to take any medication. But I would advise you to keep checking sugar level at once every 3 months.

Madam, it appears that the treatment is helping you as the levels have come closer to normal. However, dosage may have to be increased to 75 mcg and tsh levels need to be checked again after 6 weeks. Better to consult your endocrinologist for exact dosage.

Can you kindly explain to me how a person becomes resistant to insulin and what are the remedies if any .

Can you kindly explain to me how a person becomes resistant to insulin and what are the
remedies if any .
Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin resistance id mainly caused by increasing body fat. Hence, being over weight or being obese is one of the main causes. A lot of fat collects around organs inside the abdomen, (around liver, kidney and gut) this affects insulin action. Once that happens glucose level tends to go up. Resultant hyperglycemia causes glucotoxicity and further increases insulin resistance. Therefore, weight reduction, diet control and regular exercise (exercise helps muscles to use more glucose, helps reduction of blood glucose), are specifically helpful. That is why inan obese or over weight person weight reduction by even 5 to 8% produces significant blood glucose reduction as it improves insulin action. Thanks.

Once you conceive you can stop glycomet and till than exercise regularly till you have sweating and at any point of time you have giddines than get your sugar checked at that time and concentrate on weight reduction and continuation of glycomet depends on how much insulin resistance you have and how much obese you are.
