Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I am speaking from the world wide data on the disease and its treatment. Hypothroidism is a deficiency disease. Thyroxie hormone which is produced by our thyroid gland is not being produced either enough or nil. This leads pititary to produce more of TSH to try and stimulate thyroid gland. But it is unable to produce. So in hypothyroidism you get high TSh value and low T4 and T3 hormones. Both these are essential for day to day functioning of our body. So they need to be supplemented from outside. If not done then the person will have swelling of face, legs and feet, weight gain, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, muscle and joint pains, irregular menstruation in females, plus infertility, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall. If still no treatment is given there can be serious complications called as myxedema coma. In chidren hypothyroidism leads to lack of intelligence an less IQ. The only treatment world wide is taking adequate dose of levothyroxine which is a synthetic form of hormone. Unfortunately there is no cure for this condition like for diabetes. But if yu do not want to believe, it is fine. There is no need to get confused. Follow one of the line of thinking. If you want to believe Ayurvedic doctors and stop the medication and try out that medicine, please do. Good luck to you. Thanks.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.

MBBS

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.
a healthy control of blood sugars and cholesterol is not possible only with healthy food. We doctors advocate what is called as healthy lifestyle. Which is a combination of good food, exercise and a calm and healthy mind also. Now for healthy food, you need to have balanced diet. But if you're diabetic and have high cholesterol then you need to cut down your carbohydrate and sugar intake. I. E reduce rice, and eat things with high fiber like whole wheat, maize, ragi etc. Your protein intake must also be good. But instead of non veg which would increase your cholesterol, take egg whites, (the yellow part is very high in cholesterol), germinated pulses are high in protein. Also soya. Reduce or avoid fried food and junk food and sweets and carbonated sweetened drinks like soda, cola etc. Oil can also be changed to olive oil as it is low in cholesterol. Eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Diabetics are advised to avoid bananas, mangoes, grapes, but apples with skin on, oranges and mosambi are very good. Raw vegetables and plenty of green leafy vegetables can be taken make sure you exercise at least thirty minutes a day. A walk of fifteen to thirty minutes after food would reduce your blood sugar almost as much as a tablet. Try to meditate at least ten minutes in a day.

Your bp is high, sugar is in normal range and total cholesterol is high but get lipid profile done, get bp monitored and treated accordingly, reduce salt and sugar to bare minimum as fruits and vegetables give us enough of essential salts, minerals and vitamins. No added salt or packed food as salt is a preservative. Avoid excess salt as it leads to water retention and higher bp, but there is no need to take bland salt free diet, some additive to give taste is allowed. Take sendha namak as sodium is less in it compared to table salt.

Dear lybrate user, this is typical in a couple relationship. This happens because the boy and the girl belong to completely different families which have different values and beliefs. Both - the boy and the girl have certain expectations from their partner, which is a result of their own perception. When these expectations are not met, the problems in the relationship starts. It is advisable that either, you both or at least you yourself need to consult a counsellor for pri- marital counselling. The counsellor will do the needful. Please seek professional help, before getting married, irrespective of whether you remain in the same relationship or you want to move on.

Avoid tea/coffe alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done if it persist, consult doctor. Edit answer.

I am 28 yrs of age and my TSH is 8.62 while T3 is 92 and T4 is 6.40. I just got my thyroid test done for first time. Please suggest what I need to do being a male.

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
The TSH is higher than normal. Regarding the T3 and T4, you will need to do the Free T3 and Free T4 as they are more accurate. If these values are less than normal, you will surely have to take thyroid hormone supplements. However, if they are within the normal range it is possible that you have subclinical hypothyroidism. You should consult your physician.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The glucose level mentioned (fasting around 200 mg) is too high. It means present treatment is not adequate enough. Ideally when properly treated fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. At these levels one feels very fit and healthy. Plus long term complications of diabetes can be either postponed or prevented. Hence, there has to be an up-gradation of current treatment. Plus we will have to give a close look at your dietary intake and daily extent of exercise. Hence if you are keen, then please come in a private conversation with following details: fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Plus your weight and height. Based on those details I will be able to give specific guidance. In this communication we are supposed to give only positive general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. Or consult a local competent diabetologist who should be able to help. Thanks.

Frst of all. Calm down urself. 22 years olds doesn't get diabetes. Diabetes type 2 will usually occur at around 40 or more. The other counter part type 1, will be found earlier in d life around 10 yrs. When a person starts taking more fluids consequently the amount of urination increases. So dnt worry about tat. Even if you think your taking fluids in lesser amount but the urinary frequency is more. Then get urself checked up for diabetes insipidus, which is a rare condition. So stop worrying Nd start living normally.

You are too obsessed with the remedies. First of all no food in isolation will help. And following so many remedies can drop your sugar levels. At the same time how will you know what works for you. Stick to a single remedy. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. It's not about restrictions in food but a balance that helps. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

How to End Male Infertility?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Play video

Hello, I’m Dr Vinod Raina. I’m a sexologist. Today we are going to talk about male infertility. Nowadays it has been seen that a number of couples who get married are not able to conceive after their marriage.

What is the reason?

It has been seen that the number of males are suffering from infertility problems. The quality of the sperm is not good. The morphology of the sperms is not good and more over the quantity is also not good. Why? What is the reason?

It has been seen that the number of youngsters are smoking very hard, they are chain smokers, this can lead to male infertility and more over it has been seen that males drink very hard. They drink 5 to 6 to 10 pegs a day. They don’t walk. Their lifestyle is not good. You have to walk 45 minutes daily and more over it has been seen that the patients are suffering from severe stress. There are a number of youngsters who work at night and sleep in the day, they work in call centres, definitely those patients are under severe stress. Definitely, those patients will also be suffering from male infertility.

So what we can do to stop male infertility?

Definitely, you to check the quality, quantity and morphology of the sperms. You can go to the pathologist, have your sperm analysis done and it will tell you the exact the quantity quality and morphology of the sperms. Moreover, you can improve your lifestyle. You can walk for 45 minutes early in the morning. You can take the proper good diet. You can increase almonds in your diet. You can in breeze dry fruits including walnuts or flaxseed or you can take broccoli in your diet, or you can take kali urad ki daal that will increase testosterone level normally and moreover you can take non-veg including fish. If you are taking two to three times fish in a week it will also improve your sperm quality. If these things are not improving then definitely you have to visit a doctor.

First of all, you have to do an analysis of your hormones, we have to check FSH, LH, prolactin testosterone in the males which would tell us the exact quantity of the hormones. If the hormones are altered, we can initiate hormone replacement therapy and we can put patients on very good drugs. Nowadays there are the number of drugs that can cure male infertility, it includes Quinze contes, it includes elkanting, lycopene and more drugs which can be administered to the patient and within three to six months of a span of time a patient can be treated fully. No need to go for IVF because you can irradicate male infertility from the base root level if you are going to a very good specialist.

You can visit me on the lybrate platform which is www.lybrate.com/DrRaina. You can consult me online.

Type - 2 Diabetes can be easily managed with right food and you can get off-medication. You should stop consuming these things: 1. Milk products - milk and all kinds of milk products 2. Refined products - like white sugar, refined oil, refined wheat flour, Indian sweets and fried snacks 3. Packed foods - anything that is made in a factory like biscuits, bread, salty snacks, supplement powders etc. Just by doing this, you will observe great improvement in your sugar levels. Also you need to add: 1. 3 types of fruits in breakfast 2. 3 types of salad/veggies before lunch & dinner (not with meals but before meals)
