The thyroid test results look good, except hat tsh is a bit low. On treatment it should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units. However, at this dose her hypothyroidism must be well controlled. Thyroxine dose can be reduced by about 12.5 mcg, to 87.5 mcg and then test tsh values after 6 weeks if they in the range as mentioned above, same dose can be continued.

Slip Disc - Why It Happens?

Slip Disc - Why It Happens?

Why Does Disc Slip?
Before we go and look for the treatment of the slip disc (at any region) of the spine, we need to be sure that why discs slip from their places and what are the basic causes behind the slip disc? This will help you to better understand the whole problem and its severity, because understanding your disease and to be educated about the problem is the basic step we need to take for complete cure of the condition.

What this Disc is?
Discs are fluid containing bag like structures which are located between every two vertebrae. These are destined to absorb the shocks while movements of the spine and to ensure the smooth movements of the spine. These are connective tissues which are important to hold the spine together and to for smooth movements of the spine. If there won’t be gaps in between the vertebrae, we won’t be able to move ourselves in any direction and that stiffness will make us like a hard-dried up tree, which can swing on either side but cannot bend properly.
“So this Intervertebral disc is not a hard piece. This is a bag filled with some fluid, which provides cushion to the two bones above and below”.

What does Slip Disc mean?
Slip is a very non-scientific term. There is no medical term like this. This is the protrusion. Dictionary meaning for the protrusion is- something that bulges out or is protuberant or projects from its surroundings!! A protrusion is- hump of a camel. So the fluidic-bag between the two vertebrae protrudes on one side. This condition of PRTRUSION OF INTERVERTEBRAL DISC (PIVD) is known as Slipped disc or slip disc in laymen language.

Why dose disc slip from its actual position?
Discs are held in an alignment between the vertebrae. These are not alone the bones, which held the things together. Muscles surround the bones and ligaments are similarly responsible for holding these in their actual, desired location. These all together- bones, muscles, and ligaments decide the curvature of the spine and this curvature is the most important factor to decide the location of the intervertebral discs.
In most of the cases we have CURED we found that there were two common factors-

Stiffness of the muscles of the back
Loss of normal curvature of the spinal column
We just adjusted these two with the help of Ayurveda-Yoga and Panchakarma and this only ensures us with 95% results at our facilities. Reason is very clear that- WE DO REMOVE THE ROOT CAUSE! We follow the notion of Ayurveda which tells us- “Sanksheptah Kriyayogo Nidan Parivarjanam” which means- remove the causative factors and this is the basic and exact form of treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I am 18 years old and I am suffering from diabetes. Is there any possibility to completely cure diabetes in this age.

I am 18 years old and I am suffering from diabetes. Is there any possibility to completely cure diabetes in this age.
Hi, There has been no successful treatment found yet to completely cure a patient of Diabetes. But with good diet, exercise and medication it can be controlled optimally. Good diabetic control leads to less complications of heart, nerves, eyes, kidneys etc. In your case, you are suffering with Type 1 diabetes. Your pancreas are not producing insulin. Hence only option is to give insulin from outside. Stopping your insulin injections will lead to devastating effects, so please continue with your insulin injections and be brave to face the challenges of your condition. I wish you good luck Thank you.

Hi alcohol generally not good on a daily basis, and it also depends on which type of alcohol yo taking. Being diabetic you have to be extremely careful about alcohol intake. Some times too, much of it may lead to fatty liver problem so certain alcohol good but in moderation

Unless you give reports no treatment can be prescribed. Diet control and exercise are main treatment followed by tablets or injections depending upon patients condition. Diabetes is not curable but can be easily controlled so that a person can lead a good healthy ljfe.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A person having diabetes and high BP can definitely do good work out and also build sizable muscles. In fact doing more exercise shoud be helpful. But primarily your blood glucose and BP should be in strict control. Fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8 or even lower. BP 120 to 130 / 70 to 80 mm Hg. Thanks.

How to control sugar, and how manage to the health condition I am already eat tablet daily GM.

How to control sugar, and how manage to the health condition I am already eat tablet daily GM.
Living with diabetes is a challenge that more people in the United States are facing every day. Over 8 percent of Americans now have diabetes — that’s about 26 million people in all, although about 7 million aren’t even aware that they have it. Beyond managing the condition itself, it’s crucial to get diabetes under control because of the risk for serious complications — from kidney failure and nerve damage to heart disease and stroke. On the positive side, you can manage diabetes by following just a few simple healthy-living strategies: Monitoring your blood sugar, taking any prescribed medications, eating a smart diabetes diet, and exercising regularly — every day. Monitoring Your Blood Sugar To effectively manage diabetes, it’s crucial to monitor your blood sugar. “It’s like a light in a dark tunnel: You need to see where you’re going,” says Betul Hatipoglu, MD, an endocrinologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. “If you take insulin, it’s important to check your blood sugar before each injection to be safe, or once a day if you don’t take insulin.” If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and use insulin, it’s also important to check your blood sugar before exercising or bedtime, and before driving a car to make sure you don’t have low blood sugar. If you're on medication and checking your blood sugar once a day, it might be best to vary what time you check it, sampling at different times of the day, such as before meals or two hours after meals, Dr. Hatipoglu advises. Research has shown that when you monitor your blood sugar closely, it improves your ability to manage diabetes. In a study of almost 300 people published in the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, people with diabetes who regularly monitored their blood sugar had a significantly better quality of life than those with low blood sugar. Handling the Diabetes Diet When people are told they need to change their diet to manage diabetes, they may become overwhelmed by the challenge and revert to old habits. But a diabetes diet isn’t all that different from how everybody should be eat on a daily basis, says Elizabeth Snyder, RD, LD, a registered dietitian with the Ohio State University Diabetes Research Center in Columbus. Snyder suggests people with diabetes start with a good breakfast each day to avoid crashes and overeating later on. She also recommends getting plenty of fiber from whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and choosing lean protein sources and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Steer clear of sugary, sweetened beverages in favor of unsweetened tea and water, and have a few small, healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid the drops and spikes in blood sugar that can occur between meals. Sticking to Your Medication Plan If your doctor prescribes medication, sticking to the scheduling is vital. The routine will be different depending on whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and if you need to take insulin or other drugs, too. Regardless of what type of medication you take, Hatipoglu has a few suggestions to make it easier. “Use a daily pill box if you tend to forget to take your medication, and place it in the kitchen or in the bathroom near your toothbrush to help prevent missing a dose,” she says. “If you take insulin, a journal with food intake and blood sugar information can be priceless when it comes to treatment-plan troubleshooting in your doctor’s office.” Managing Diabetes With Exercise Regular exercise is a key component when it comes to your overall health and living well with diabetes. However, getting started with an exercise program can call for a little more effort if you need to monitor blood sugar before and after exercise. For this reason, Hatipoglu suggests starting with a simple, easily achievable exercise routine. “Walking is usually the best as it’s fun, can be done indoors or outdoors, and only requires a good pair of shoes, she says. Swimming, cycling, dancing, and running are other good aerobic op.
