It is necessary get the condition corrected soon. Simultaneously it is very important to keep blood glucose in excellent control. Thanks.

Success rate varies from 10 to 50% per single treatment but actually depends on actual age, the health and some other factors of both the partners. There are many clinics including ours. The procedure also depends on the actual cause of the infertility. But the hope is always there.

Yes. Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. .consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

My father is suffering from diabetes. What is the common diet for diabetes patient to maintain healthy life style.
Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet. That should contain complex carbohydrates like whole grain flour made item, proteins from various sources like dairy products, eggs, poultry, fishes and lean meat, (for a vegetarian main sources are milk products, pulses and eggs if allowed) and fats particularly unsaturated and mono unsaturated ones. Avoid trans fats or saturated fats particularly seen in deep fried foods. It is better to use 2 or 3 different types of oils. Specific diet plan has to be based on individual patients weight, height, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels.

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.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, namaskar, you must ask the first question to a psychiatrist. Spine block injections are used to treat such discs which are not so bad in the mri but still causing problem to the patient. Or where the patient does not accept surgery despite an indication in the mri. This is a palliative measure to alleviate pain temporarily. For few weeks to few months. Can not be predicted by the doctor. The hashimoto's disease is treated by endocrinologists. He will be able to answer your question properly. Take care.

Be on strict diabetic diet. Perform regular exercises or go for 1hr walk daily. Get your sugar levels checked every month and visit your doctor at regular intervals for follow up. You can take 1tsf of methi powder mixed with water in the morning on empty stomach. Chew 5-6 neem leaves in the morning. Take bittergourd juice or koolkol juice (0ne glass) on empty stomach in the morning. All these will help to keep your sugar levels under control. Diabetes can only be controlled and cannot be cured. Hence it is not possible to remove it from your body.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.
