Hello, thanks for the query. The brand mentioned contains glimiperide, metformin and pioglitazone in combination. There are quite a few tablets available with same combination, so you can pick any brand with same combination. There are many brands containing metformin + glimiperide. Plus pioglitazone can be taken separately. Thanks.

Hi sir/ mam, I am a hypothyroid patient from past eight years. I have been continuously taking thyronorm and the dose has increased always. I have reduced 12-13 kgs in the past one and a half years. Recently my tsh level has gone to 0.14 and I am taking 125 mcg. I regularly do gym and playing squash. I intend to reduce 5-7 kgs more. My current weight is 72 kg and even doing everything i'm not able to reduce. I take fruits and veggies as I am a vegetarian. I don't take eggs even. Tea in the morning and coffee in the evening. Alcohol consumption is almost nil. So please help me what should be my protocol? Thank you.

lybrate-user., I have seen the details given. Your present tsh (0.14 mu/l) is in fact a bit lower than the recommended lower limit. This may be due to a slightly higher dosage of levothyroxine by about 12.5 mcg. As regards weight reduction, madam with vegetarian food, usually our overall intake is very high quantity of carbs (rice, wheat, jowar, other grains, many tuberous vegetables etc). You have mentioned the weight, but height is not given, so it is difficult to calculate your ideal body weight. I am sure you are aware that ideal body weight (ibw = height in cms - 100 = kgs). Plus your BMI (body mass index) has to be < 23 kgs/sq meter. So looking at these facts, your caloric intake has to be ibw x 20 k calories. Since you want to further reduce the weight, then there has to be a reduction of another 500 calories in the intake. So please look at your total intake and then decide. Thanks.

थायराइड के प्रकार- Thyroid Ke Prakar!

थायराइड के प्रकार- Thyroid Ke Prakar!

हाइपरथायरायडिज्म हमारे शरीर की एक ऐसी स्थिति है जिसमें हमारे शरीर में मौजूद थायरॉयड ग्रंथि थायरोक्सिन हार्मोन का उत्पादन आवश्यकता से अधिक करने लगती है. थायरॉयड एक छोटी सी तितली के आकार की ग्रंथि होती है जो आपकी गर्दन के आगे वाले हिस्से में स्थित होती है. थायरॉयड ग्रंथि इन हार्मोनों के रिलीज के माध्यम से आपके चयापचय को नियंत्रित करती है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम थायराइड के प्रकारों के बारे में जानें ताकि इस विषय में हमारी जानकारी बढ़ सके.

थायराइड के प्रकार-
थायराइड नामक बीमारी के दो प्रकार होते हैं, जो निम्नलिखित है:

1. हाइपोथायरायडिज्म (थायराइड कम होना)
2. हाइपरथायराइडिज्म (थायराइड बढ़ना)

हाइपोथायरायडिज्म के स्टेज
1. उप-क्लिनिकल हाइपोथायरायडिज्म -
इस स्टेज में उप-क्लिनिकल हाइपोथायरायडिज्म में TSH का लेवल 3 से 5.5 mlU/L तक बढ़ जाता है. अगर थायरोक्सिन का लेवल सामान्य लेवल के अंदर हो तो यह संदर्भ उप-क्लिनिकल हाइपोथायरायडिज्म की तरफ संकेत करते हैं.

2. हल्के हाइपोथायरायडिज्म - टीएसएच (TSH) के लेवल को 5.5 से 10 mlU/L तक बढ़ाया जा सकता है और थायरोक्सिन का लेवल कम किया जा सकता है, इससे अधिकांश मरीजों का टी4 लेवल सामान्य स्तर पर आ जाता है. टी3 का लेवल आगे नहीं गिरता है जब तक बीमारी गंभीर रूप से विकसित ना हो इसका कारण ये है कि TSH के लेवल का बढ़ना थायरॉयड को अधिक टी3 जारी करने के लिए उत्तेजित करने लगता है. इसके बेहतर परिणाम तब दिखते हैं जब टी3 का लेवल गिरने लगता है. हल्के हाइपोथायरायडिज्म आमतौर पर ऑटोइम्यून थायरायराइटिस के कारण होते हैं, जिनके लक्षण थकान, वजन बढ़ना, तरल अवरोधन आदि के रूप में देखने को मिलते हैं.

3. मध्यम हाइपोथायरायडिज्म - किसी व्यक्ति को मध्यम हाइपोथायरायडिज्म तब होता है जब उसके टीएसएच का स्तर 10 से 20 mlU/L की सीमा के भीतर हो और जब उनका टी3 और टी4 निम्न स्तर में हो. हल्के और मध्यम हाइपोथायरायडिज्म महिलाओं में जल्दी होने की संभावना रहती है. महिलाओं के मामले में यह बहुत जरूरी होता है कि हाइपोथायरायडिज्म कि जांच करके इसको ठीक किया जाए, क्योंकि इससे महिलाओं में गर्भपात और भ्रूण मृत्यू जैसे जोखिम बढ़ जाते हैं.

4. मैक्सिडेमा कोमा - अगर हाइपोथायरायडिज्म का समय पर ट्रीटमेंट ना किया जाए तो वह बढ़ कर मैक्सिडेमा कोमा का रूप ले सकता है. मैक्सिडेमा कोमा एक बहुत ही गंभीर स्थिति होती है, थायरॉयड हार्मोन का बहुत ही कम उत्पादन इसकी विशेषता होती है. इस स्थिति में शरीर तनाव, ठंडा मौसम और सर्जरी आदि स्थितियों का सामना करने में सक्षम नहीं होता है. मरीज इस स्थिति में सामान्य महसूस नहीं करता एवं उसे शारीरिक कमजोरी, उलझन, शरीर में सुजन इत्यादि की स्थिति का सामना करना पड़ता है.

थायराइड बढ़ने (हाइपरथायरायडिज्म) के लक्षण-
टी 4, टी 3 या फिर दोनों हार्मोनों की ज़्यादा मात्रा अत्यधिक हाई मेटाबॉलिक का कारण हो सकती हैं. इसे हाइपरमेटाबॉलिक स्थिति कहा जाता है. इस अवस्था में, आपको हार्ट रेट में तेज़ी, हाई ब्लड प्रेशर और हाथों में झटकों का अनुभव हो सकता है. आपको पसीना ज्यादा आ सकता है और गर्मी के प्रति कम सहिष्णुता हो सकती है. हाइपरथायरायडिज्म इटेंस्टाइन की अधिक गतिशीलता, वजन घटना और महिलाओं में अनियमित मेस्ट्रूअल साइकिल उत्पन्न कर सकता है. थायरॉयड ग्रंथि अपने आप भी सूज कर गोइटर बन सकती है. आपकी आंखो में भी सूजन हो सकती हैं, जो एक्सोफ़थैल्मोस का एक लक्षण है और ग्रेव्स बीमारी से संबंधित है.

हाइपरथायरायडिज्म के अन्य लक्षण निम्नलिखित हैं -
1. भूख ज्यादा लग सकती है
2. एंग्जायटी
3. ध्यान केंद्रित करने में समस्या
4. कमजोरी
5. अनियमित हार्ट रेट
6. नींद आने में समस्या
7. कमज़ोर बाल
8. खुजली
9. बाल टूटना
10. उल्टी और मतली
11. पुरुषों में ब्रेस्ट का विकास

निम्नलिखित लक्षणों को शीघ्र ही उपचार की आवश्यकता होती है -
1. चक्कर आना
2. साँस लेने में परेशानी
3. बेहोशी
4. तेज या अनियमित हार्ट मूवमेंट

हाइपरथायरायडिज्म, आर्टरियल फिब्रिलेशन का कारण बन सकता है जो एक गंभीर एरिथमिया है, जिससे स्ट्रोक और हार्ट फेल भी हो सकती है.

थायराइड कम होने (हाइपोथायरायडिज्म) के लक्षण-
हाइपोथायरायडिज्म के लक्षण और संकेत मूल रूप से थायरॉयड हार्मोन उत्पादन में होने वाली कमी और उसकी गंभीरता पर आधारित होते हैं. लेकिन आमतौर पर इस देखा जाए तो यह कई समस्या उत्पन्न कर सकता हैं जो हमारे अंदर बहुत सालों से विकसित होती हैं. सबसे पहलें आप हाइपोथायरायडिज्म के लक्षणों में थकावट और वजन बढ़ने जैसी समस्याओं को अनुभव कर सकते हैं. मगर जब आपके मेटाबाॅलिक के काम करने की गति धीमी होने लगती है, तब आप इसके संकेत देख सकते हैं.

हाइपोथायरायडिज्म के लक्षण और संकेतों में निम्नलिखित शामिल है-
1. थकान
2. अधिक ठंड लगना
3. त्वचा सूखी पड़ना
4. वजन बढ़ना
5. चेहरे पर सूजन होना
6. आवाज बैठना
7. मसल्स में दुर्बलता
8. ब्लड में कोलेस्ट्रॉल का लेवेल बढ़ना
9. मसल्स में दर्द, नाजुकता और जकड़न
10. जॉइंट में अकड़न और सूजन के साथ दर्द
11. असामान्य और अनियमित रूप से पीरियड
12. हेयर फॉल
13. हार्ट रेट धीमी होना
14. डिप्रेशन
15. याद्दाश्त कमज़ोर पड़ना

अगर हाइपोथायरायडिज्म का ट्रीटमेंट ना किया जाए तो उसके संकेत और लक्षण धीरे-धीरे और बढ़ने लगते हैं और थायरॉयड हार्मोन ज्यादा रिलीज़ होने लगते हैं, जिससे थायरॉइड बढ़ने जैसी समस्या हो सकती है. इसके साथ-साथ आपको विस्मृत विकार हो सकते हैं, सोचने-समझने की क्षमता कम हो सकती है और आप डिप्रेशन का अनुभव भी हो सकता हैं.

Fertility - How To Enhance It?

Fertility - How To Enhance It?

Pregnancy can be easy and smooth, while on the other hand, it might be time-consuming, marred with conception difficulties all along the way. Pregnancy may seem exciting to some, whereas it can be stressful for others. Regardless of whether it is the first child you are planning or have had a successful pregnancy previously; there are some tips you need to keep in mind in order to improve fertility and give birth to a healthy child.

Some fertility boosting factors are:

  1. These fantastic swimmers are at the very root of male fertility. Some important components which need to be taken into consideration are sperm count, sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to swim around the female reproductive tract) and morphology (shape and size of a sperm). In order to have all these parameters in check and working fine, one needs to abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption among many other lifestyle modifications.

  2. Having unprotected vaginal intercourse during the woman’s fertile days in a month helps improve chances of conception.

  3. Fertility becomes a challenge when you are either overweight or underweight. The weight of a woman affects ovulation (The release of eggs from the ovaries) and causes hormonal imbalance; factors which make it very difficult to conceive. Keep your weight levels in check and that could prove primarily essential in bettering your fertility.

  4. Staying well-nourished boosts your odds of conceiving! Make sure to include enough protein, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D in your diet, because deficiencies in these nutrients have been linked to lengthened menstrual cycles (and therefore less frequent ovulation) and a higher risk of early miscarriage. Ask your gynaecologist if you should take a daily multivitamin supplement. And be sure to eat protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, low-fat dairy products, eggs, and beans.

  5. Beware of STDs or Sexually Transmitted Diseases. One is the most prone to STDs of any kind if he/she happens to engage in unprotected sexual intercourse; having a number of sexual partners just ups the chances of getting afflicted by STD. Protected vaginal intercourse helps prevent STDs, thus enhancing fertility and subsequently, chances of conception.

  6. According to several studies, the lubricant one chooses surprisingly plays a significant role in determining fertility. Not all lubricants boost fertility and sperm motility (sperm count). Baby oil or egg whites are a few good examples of such lubricants.

  7. While a limited amount of caffeine consumption is good, overdoing it might spoil and hamper fertility. Limit caffeine intake and keep it within a level of 200-250mg a day.

  8. Smoking, besides playing havoc with every organ in the body, affects the reproductive organs and thus fertility. In men, it leads to reduced sperm count and in women, it causes DNA damage. Stub the bud right now and never get back to it.

  9. Certain toxic chemicals can lead to female and male infertility. So it is advisable that you stay away from chemicals such as pesticides, organic solvents and lead, the primary toxins which pose a severe threat to fertility.

  10. Exercising regularly can never go wrong. It gives you the strength and stamina, boosting your overall health. However, vigorous exercises, especially when you are trying to conceive, will do you no good. It might adversely lead to the suppression of certain hormones such as progesterone (pregnancy stimulating hormone) and might affect ovulation, hence affecting fertility. Aim at a regular 20 minutes session of light exercises; mild cardiovascular exercises such as walking can work wonders, especially in such circumstances.

Diabetes - Foods That Can Be Lethal!

Diabetes -  Foods That Can Be Lethal!

Diabetic patients should have a meticulous focus on the kind of food they consume. While too much food can shoot up the blood sugar level, too less food can bring down the blood sugar level. It is necessary to maintain a fine balance. It is also very critical to refrain from certain food items which can give a blowback to diabetes.

Here is a list of 8 such food items to stay away from:

  1. Candy: Candies contain a high amount of sugar and largely contribute to weight gain and increase in blood sugar. Instead of consuming candies, it makes sense to satisfy the sweet tooth with food items such as berries, fruit salad etc.
  2. Pastries and cakes: Pastries and cakes are loaded with white flour, sugar, and sodium. They not, only interfere with the proper functioning of insulin in the body but can shoot up blood sugar level in a very short span of time.
  3. White bread: White bread acts just like sugar. Once the body digests it, the refined starch in the white bread interferes with insulin and disturbs diabetes control. A better option to white bread is a whole bread English muffin.
  4. French fries: A favorite to many, this can wreak havoc to the blood sugar level of a person suffering from diabetes. It contains tons of oil, carb, and starch. It raises the cholesterol level and invites other diseases as well.
  5. Syrup and pancakes: It is one of the worst choices in breakfast. It has loads of white flour and carbs. The butter inside the pancakes makes it worse. Not only does it interfere with the insulin in the body, it majorly disturbs the diabetes control regime.
  6. Raisins: While raisins may not be as harmful as other food items, it still has a detrimental effect on the body. Owing to its concentrated sugar content, it can raise the blood sugar level.
  7. Fruit juice: Strange as it may sound, fruit juice, even if they are hundred percent pure is as good as sugar syrup. It can sharply increase the blood sugar level and be a major roadblock to diabetes control.

Diabetes - Ayurveda Remedies To Treat It!

Diabetes - Ayurveda Remedies To Treat It!

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that results in higher levels of blood sugars in the body. It is assuming epidemic proportions, and India has become the new diabetic capital with more than 50 million diabetic people. The main problem with diabetes is it does not completely go away, and there is a whole myriad of issues that it brings along with it. Heart attacks, strokes, eyesight problems, delayed wound healing, nerve damage and impotence. Therefore, diabetes and by that we mainly mean blood sugar levels have to be managed so that there is a delay in onset of the associated conditions and/or reduced in severity.

Ayurveda refers to diabetes as Prameha (excessive urination) and Madhumeha (sugary urine) and has identified close to 20 forms of the disease. According to Ayurvedic belief, each disease is caused due to imbalance in kapha, pitta, and vata doshas and diabetes is caused by all these, predominantly by kapha. With any stream of medicine, management of diabetes involves two tracks - one is lifestyle changes and the second is medications.

Lifestyle changes include the following:

  1. Diet: Reduce the amount of rice, sugar, potato, sweet fruits, maida, deep fried foods, and red meat. Protein-rich foods like lentils, soya, green leafy vegetables and fish should be increased. Diet plan should change to small, frequent meals instead of binge eating.
  2. Exercise: Include 30 minutes of regular exercise into your daily routine if you have a diabetic predisposition.
  3. Others: Avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure sufficient sleep, avoid sleeping during day time, improved foot and eye care, periodically check sugar levels, and manage stress levels.

Medication:

Ayurveda has a whole lot of home remedies proven to be very effective against diabetes.

  1. Jambhul: Eugenia Jambolana whether eaten raw or juice extract has been shown to have beneficial effects in managing sugar levels and cholesterol.
  2. Gymnema sylvestre: Used to manage diabetes for over 2000 years, it reduces sugar cravings and is being touted as the future for diabetes treatment.
  3. Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia): It has 3 components that give it strong antidiabetic properties. The charantin reduces blood sugar levels; the polypeptide has insulin-like effects; and lectin that again has hypoglycemic effects.
  4. Bel (Aegle marmelos): Also known as wood apple, leaves of the plant are shown to have antidiabetic properties. 5 to 10 leaves can be chewed on a daily basis to help control blood sugar levels.
  5. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum): Consuming 10 g of fenugreek seeds soaked in water increases the amount of insulin produced, thereby increasing sugar breakdown.
  6. Neem: Chewing about 4 to 5 leaves in the morning on an empty stomach helps to control blood sugar levels. Alternately, neem leaves powder is available which can be dissolved in water and consumed.

Diabetes - How Ayurveda Can Subdue It?

Diabetes - How Ayurveda Can Subdue It?

Ayurveda is a system of medicine that takes a holistic approach to treat various diseases. It is believed in Ayurveda that when a disease occurs in your body then it means that the mind, body and soul is unbalanced. 

It is believed that everyone is made up of five elements - earth, air, water, ether and fire. If all of these elements in the body are well balanced, then the body tends to function in a healthy manner. An illness is a sign that one or multiple elements in the body are not balanced. A practitioner carries out a diagnosis of your diet, lifestyle, seeks to find out the cause of the imbalance and provides treatment accordingly. 

Diabetes is a condition in the body which is characterized by blood sugar spikes that result in the body being unable to use the glucose in the body. 

The various symptoms of diabetes are outlined below -

1. Fatigue
You may experience fatigue as the glucose in the body will not be effectively utilized.

2. Frequent urination
You may urinate frequently because of the presence of excess glucose in the blood.

3. Weight gain
You may experience weight gain.

4. Bruises take longer time to heal
Injuries take more time to heal if there is too much glucose concentration in the body.

The various ayurvedic remedies for diabetes are -

1. Eating bitter gourd with ghee is good for bringing down blood sugar levels.

2. Bitter gourd juice can also be an effective remedial measure.

3. Make a mixture of turmeric, powdered fenugreek seeds, white pepper and milk. Consume this drink at least twice a day.

4. Combine "neem" leaves, "tulsi" and "belpatras" with a glass of water and drink it on empty stomach to keep diabetes at bay.

5. Limit sugar consumption by restricting foods such as banana, potato and rice.

6. Consume bitter vegetables

7. You should exercise on a regular basis; activities such as running, strength training and yoga will help you manage diabetes better

8. Consume lots of green vegetables and herbs as they assist in insulin production.

Joint Pain Due to Hypothyroidism - Ways You Can Manage It!

Joint Pain Due to Hypothyroidism - Ways You Can Manage It!

The body is controlled by chemicals known as hormones. These are produced in minute quantities by minute organs, but have great control on almost all body functions. There are different hormones, each determining different functions like how tall a person will grow, how strong the bones will be, how well a person can react to stress and the reproductive ages. There is also a master gland called the pituitary which is situated somewhere deep in the brain, which controls all these organs. Small variations in the amount of these chemicals in the body produce significant effect on their respective control organ.

Thyroid is one such major gland, which produces a hormone called thyroxine or T4 as it is commonly called. This controls metabolism and emotional health to a large extent. Reduced amounts of T4 is very common in women, and with altered metabolism, there is increased musculoskeletal pain in various joints.

Here are some of the best ways to reduce Joint Pain from Hypothyroidism:

  1. Step Up to Low-Impact Aerobics: Twenty to 60 minutes of near-daily aerobics — really any exercise that gets your heart pumping — can help speed up your metabolism and counter weight gain, a common hypothyroidism symptom and a contributor to joint pain. But if you have joint or knee pain, choose low-impact aerobics. Swimming is the ideal low-impact aerobic exercise — the water buoys your body and cushions joints.
  2. Strengthen Your Muscles: Strength- or weight-training exercises build muscle mass, which uses more calories than fat even at rest. That promotes weight loss and can ease the strain on your joints. Stronger muscles also directly help protect nearby joints. For example, strengthening exercises such as squats, lunges, and leg lifts develop the muscles that support the knees. Start slow with 15 repetitions of each exercise. Then build up to three sets of 15 reps each.
  3. Get Plenty of Sleep: Sleep is the time for muscles and joints to recover. If you're not sleeping well, you are not recovering as fast as you could be. What's more, when you're sleep deprived, you're likely to crave junk and comfort foods that can contribute to weight gain, which adds stress to your joints and increases joint pain. Aim for seven to eight hours of quality sleep each night.
  4. Stick to a Healthy Diet: Replace the junk food that can lead to weight gain with choices that enhance your health. For example, add fatty fish to your diet. It's a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, known to decrease inflammation, which may be contributing to your muscle and joint pain. Coldwater fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna have some the highest amounts of omega-3s. Also be sure to get lots of fresh fruit and vegetables high in antioxidants, which may counter inflammation, too.
  5. Practice YogaYoga poses are a great way to provide relief for joint pain while also increasing flexibility. For shoulder pain, look for poses that open your chest, like this simple pose: Sit with your feet flat on the floor. As you inhale, stretch your arms over your head. Clasp your hands together over your head and then turn your palms up toward the ceiling. Drop your shoulders and straighten up as if pushing through your head. Hold for 30 seconds. Release your hands, bringing them down behind you. Next, clasp your hands behind your back and lift your arms. Hold for another 30 seconds.
  6. Don't Let Fatigue Win: Fatigue is one of the most common hypothyroidism symptoms. Even though you might feel listless, you'll benefit from exercise because it will rev your metabolism and help you maintain flexibility despite muscle and joint pain. If you're too exhausted to complete a full exercise routine, break it up into several short bouts — even 10 minutes done three times a day will be effective. Also, stretching and relaxation exercises within two hours of bedtime may help you sleep better.
  7. Meditate for Stress Relief: Having a chronic condition such as hypothyroidism can be stressful, and that stress can actually contribute to pain and tension. That's why it's important to find ways to reduce stress, such as the practice of mindfulness meditation. This form of meditation teaches you how to distract yourself from what's bothering you by refocusing your attention, often on your own breathing. 

Thyroid hormones help all your organs work well. They control how your body uses food for energy.

What Do Thyroids Do

Thyroid hormones affect your metabolism rate, which means how fast or slow your brain, heart, muscles, liver, and other parts of your body work. If your body works too fast or too slowly, you won’t feel well. For example, if you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, you might feel tired and cold. Or, if you have too much thyroid hormone, you might feel nervous, jumpy, and warm.

What hormones does my thyroid gland produce?

The thyroid gland produces thyroxine (T4), which is a relatively inactive prohormone and lower amounts of the active hormone, triiodothyronine (T3). Collectively, T3 and T4 are referred to as the thyroid hormones. Twenty percent of the body’s triiodothyronine is made by the thyroid gland; the other 80% comes from thyroxine converted by organs such as the liver or kidneys.

The thyroid gland also produces calcitonin from cells called C-cells. Calcitonin is understood to play a role in regulating calcium levels in the body, but its exact function in humans remains unclear. Thyroid hormone is one such chemical which has effect on all organs of the body including the joints. Vague pains may be due to thyroid disorders. They are easy to manage with treatment.
