Mr. Lybrate-user chandra, the blood sugar levels mentioned are fairly good, particularly fasting. Pp should come down a bit more for good control. From now on you have to see that blood sugar levels are maintained with in expected levels (fasting near 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg). Take prescribed medication regularly, without missing a dose. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour and strive to maintain near normal weight. Take a restricted diet giving exact calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs). You a bmi of 34.375 kg/m2 which signifies you have grade 1 obesity. Reducing weight it self will help in better blood sugar control. Diabetes is condition that will remain for life time and keeping it under control is essential to prevent or postpone long term complication.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is present then glucose is prohibited, the reason is it will increase blood glucose level almost immediately. She can other complex carbs which do give energy. However, most important is her blood glucose has to be well controlled, then only she will feel energetic and healthy. That means her fasting glucose has to be closer to 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c%<7. Once this is achieved, patients overall health improves dramatically. Glucose is not to be taken for energy at all. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Honey contains sucrose which is same as sugar. If person with diabetes takes it then it is like eating sugar. There will be a rapid increase in the blood glucose level, depending on how much honey is taken. Plus I have no idea as what advantage honey has in "ulcer like condition" Hence I am of te opinion it should be avoided. Thanks.

Hello Sir, It is very likely that you do have Diabetes. But, just based on one blood test report, a doctor should not diagnose Diabetes. Physical stress or mental stress can cause raised blood glucose levels. I would advise you to get your Fasting blood glcuose, your 2 hour post breakfast blood glucose and HbA1C levels checked after you recover from your cold. If these results are elevated, then you are having diabetes. I hope this answer has been helpful to you Kind regards.

Doctor has diagnosed symptoms of thyroid. What precautions I should take so that my disease is cured?
If the diagnosis is hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine tablets is for life time. Precautions are do not take soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Also avoid high fat milk products, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus diet should be controlled so that weight is not increased as hypothyroidism leads to weight increase.

Female Infertility Treatment, Natural Fertility Enhancement with Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad

Female Infertility Treatment, Natural Fertility Enhancement with Homeopathy
There are many causes for infertility in male and female patients . On average 10% of the reproductive couples may be infertile. 

For our therapeutic purposes, we concentrate on few very common curable factors which contribute to a large population of childlessness. 

In female infertility important factors are :

Ovulation factors / hormonal factors
Tubal factors – e.g. blocked fallopian tubes / damaged tubes
Recurrent abortive factors - e.g. toxoplasma infection
Nutritional factors
Endometriosis
Infective factors e.g. – genital TB / Mycoplasma infection / Gonococal infection.
Male Infertility Factor and Treatment 

One single factor of semen and sperm quality matters.
Common causes are :

Oligospermia (number below 40 million /ml)
Oligospermaesthenia (poor motility of sperm) 
Blocked vas.
We tried to cover up to formulate for male and female causes. In male, we devised formulation for improving sperm quality by raising number and their mobility. In Oligospermia with or without poor motility was our main concern.

Here Homoeopathy was the best choice because:

It has fastest response. Sperm count rises 5-6 times at least from the first month itself. So it requires short treatment of 2 to 3 months. ONLY.
It improves motility percentage wise as well as grade wise. So number of sperms having motility rises as well as grade of motility improved from I or II grades to III rd or IV th grade. This raises conception rates.
Since this male factor is the largest causative factor for infertility, our medicines helps a large number of infertility patients.
It has no hormonal preparation so no side effects. It helps to raise sperm quality for longer periods, so no rebound phenomena as it appears as in hormonal treatment.
It has no dietary restriction.
It is easy to take and cheap.
Female Infertility Treatment: 

In cases of anatomical damaged tubes, homeopathy cannot help much , so operative procedures are better for it.

But for abortive factors, homeopathy is the best. Doctors at Speciality Homeoathy treated more than 1000 patients with above 95% success rate with medicine only. They had different causes like infection toxoplasma, rubella cytomegaly virus, or hormonal causes.

Here also the treatment is faster. It requires 2 months treatment to eliminate all important causes of abortions, post-treatment conception is generally safe up to 95% without any additional hormonal treatment or other measures like bed rest. Medicines are safe and have no side effects. Homeopathy has worked best in secondary infertility also with very high success rate.

lybrate-user, You are overweight with a BMI of 28.87 kg/M2, which very close to be a grade 1 obesity. You will have to take some specific measures and see that weight is reduced (ideal body weight 52 kgs). If Vit D is less then take the supplement of it. There is nothing like a specific time for exposure to sun. Early morning sun rays should fall on the skin. You may take calcium and D3 supplements. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, your daughter needs to get rid of her ocd and needs treatment for ocd, pcod and obesity. Marriage is not the solution, it will create more problems in her life, if she gets married without getting treated for her ailments. She probably has low self esteem and may have a few suppressed emotions. It is advisable that you take her to a counsellor. The counsellor will help her to open up and express her feelings. The counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes and thereby will help her have higher self esteem and confidence. This will motivate her to take care of her body and mind and thereby help her in reducing her weight and discard thoughts which are harmful.
