Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin and unexplained weight gain. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose 135 mg/100 ml, does not give any idea, unless it mentioned whether it is a fasting, PP or a random level. Please clarify that. Sugar and jaggery both are same, contain sucrose and made from sugar cain only. If you have diabetes then only all the precautions are necessary. Otherwise, maintain normal weight, exercise regularly and take healthy food. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user Verhese, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned are seriously high. It is absolutely essential to bring those under control very quickly. Ideally fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c5 <6.8. With such high levels there is a severe resistance to yur Insulin action due to glucotoxicity and lipotoxicity. Therefore, it is better to initiate the treatment with Insulin injection along with oral drugss, achieve a strict and good control of blood glucose. Then after about 3 to 4 months we can discontinue Insulin and control the blood glucose with oral drugs, diet and exercise. If you are only on oral drugs now, it will be difficult to achieve a quick and necessary glucose control. As regards the diet, I need to know the present dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs (if already treatment has been started). Following are certain precautions to be taken: 1) Stop all sweets, deep fried foods, avoid junk foods, pastries, bakery items and all foods made from maida. 2) Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. 3) Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. 4) Avoid fructose syrup containing foods, colas and red meat. 5) Refrain from alcohol and smoking. 6) Exercise daily for over one hour. If you are looking for specific instructions and even treatment please come is private conversation (paid consultation, then I will be able to even prescribe if there is any need. Thanks.

Beside incresed serum creatinine which indicates decreased kidney functions, there must be other complications of diabetes are there. That is why insulin is advised, otherwise some oral medicines available which maybe used. But you can discuss this with your doctor.

She is 24 year and she has thyroid can she get pregnant but she has an normal thyroid.
Dear Lybrate user, You have mentioned that she has thyroid at the beginning of your statement and that she has normal thyroid at the end. If she has thyroid, then she should be put on appropriate treatment and then investigated whether she can get pregnant. Most of the ladies with thyroid problem conceive.

Stress and infertility

Stress and infertility

It is not clear how exactly stress impacts fertility. It is not known whether high levels of stress can prevent pregnancy or affect a woman's chance of conceiving. We do know that reducing stress provides a better quality of life during times of intense personal challenge. 

What is stress? 

Stress is often defined as an event that a person sees/ feels is threatening. In order to protect itself, the body responds with a fight or flight response. How can stress impact a fertility patient? sometimes, infertility patients respond to the stress of being unable to conceive by aggressively pursuing treatment and procedures. Other patients withdraw and isolate from family, friends, and community. Neither of these extremes is ideal for patients who seek to treat their infertility and build a family. 

How can I reduce my stress? 

Having less stress in your life while pursuing fertility treatment may not, in and of itself, result in a pregnancy. However, developing better coping strategies to manage stress related to an infertility diagnosis and treatment can help you feel more in control and improve your overall well-being. 

It has been shown that stress does interfere with making rational and well-thought-out decisions. Reducing stress can allow patients to research, explore, and consider all the options available with a clearer mindset. By reducing stress, the pros and cons of one treatment course over another can be more effectively weighed and considered. 

Reduced stress is good for your health. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress free, finding ways to minimize stress while pursuing treatment can help. It is helpful for patients to look for ways to reduce the burden of infertility treatments and medical protocols. 

There are many stress-reducing techniques; some of the more popular methods recommended to fertility patients are: 

acupuncture 

aerobic exercise (may be reduced during treatment) 

collaboration with experts in stress reduction 

guided imagery 

journaling 

listening to music 

massage therapy

meditation 

mind-body groups 

mindfulness 

progressive muscle relaxation 

psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy 

self-help books

support/educational groups 

visualization 

walking/hiking 

yoga

 

How can I help my friend/loved one? 

Friends and loved ones are facing a challenge. Telling patients to be less stressed can make them feel more responsible for causing their own infertility and feel blamed. Telling someone to relax can cause greater stress. However, asking how couples/friends are doing and suggesting concrete and pragmatic ways to reduce stress will enhance quality of life and give the patient back some sense of control. For many struggling with infertility, just having friends/loved ones available for listening is greatly appreciated. 

The goal of stress reduction is to minimize, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patient's needs the best.

Cupping therapy in High blood pressure

MD (U), Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Cupping therapy in High blood pressure
Hypertension is very common, that needs a lifelong management once diagnosed. All adults should know their blood pressure; regular monitoring can reduce the risk of having heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and blood vessel problems. Though anti-hypertensive medications and lifestyle changes are effective to bring down the blood pressure, some natural remedies help control the blood pressure more efficiently.
Cupping is an ancient treatment remedy that has been used for many centuries in many parts of the world for high blood pressure (hypertension) treatment. In the middle east, wet cupping" hijama" is still a popular treatment. Wet cupping is the process of using a vacuum at different points on the body in order to gather the blood in that area. Then apply few superficial incisions (small, light scratches using a razor) on those areas, followed by repeating the vacuum on the same areas in order to remove'harmful' blood which lies just beneath the surface of the skin.

Then on doctor advise I took glycomet 500 mg 2 time for 10 days. After that sugar level 180 fasting. On advise I took medicine 1 time. And start some movement .then sugar level 110. Stop medicine on doctor advise. After 10 days stopping medicine my sugar level 130. Kindly tell me can I start medicine or not.

Dear Lybrate user: Being a Diabetic patient, one should take care of the sugar levels for any kind of fluctuations or associated complaints. Make sure to consult your doctor on regular basis for better health and follow-up. If you have stopped the medication then better you take care about your lifestyle and food habits modifications and regularly get check-up.
