Dear Doctors, I have come across product "GlyxGo" claiming to reverse Type II diabetics. Are their claims proven or described mechanism scientifically correct. Can it be taken along with regular diabetic medicines without any adverse effects? Thanks.

In order to regulate blood sugar levels, the body secretes a hormone from the pancreas called insulin. This hormone is used to regulate blood sugar levels, working by forcing the liver to convert blood sugar into glycogen, which is then stored in roughly two thirds of the cells of the body.There are a number of medications that are able to modulate blood sugar levels. These solutions are commonly used by diabetic individuals that need to regulate their blood sugar These products you ask are claimed to be herbals and cannot cure diabetes and is scam

Does hypothyroidism affect pregnancy and what can we do to get rid off hypothyroidism? Please suggest.

Does hypothyroidism affect pregnancy and what can we do to get rid off hypothyroidism? Please suggest.
The Thyroid and Pregnancy Even before conception, thyroid conditions that have lingered untreated can hinder a woman’s ability to become pregnant or can lead to miscarriage. Fortunately, most thyroid problems that affect pregnancy are easily treated. The difficulty lies in recognizing a thyroid problem during a time when some of the chief complaints — fatigue, constipation and heat intolerance — can be either the normal side effects of pregnancy or signals that something is wrong with the thyroid. Although detecting a thyroid problem is important, it is equally necessary for those already diagnosed with a condition to have the thyroid checked if they are planning to become pregnant or are pregnant. Thyroid hormone is necessary for normal brain development. In early pregnancy, babies get thyroid hormone from their mothers. Later on, as the baby’s thyroid develops, it makes its own thyroid hormone. An adequate amount of iodine is needed to produce fetal and maternal thyroid hormone. The best way to ensure adequate amounts of iodine reach the unborn child is for the mother to take a prenatal vitamin with a sufficient amount of iodine. Not all prenatal vitamins contain iodine, so be sure to check labels properly. Thyroid Disorders and Miscarriage A woman with untreated hypothyroidism is at the greatest risk for a miscarriage during her first trimester. Unless the case is mild, women with untreated hyperthyroidism are also at risk for miscarriage. Who should be tested? Despite the impact thyroid diseases can have on a mother and baby, whether to test every pregnant woman remains controversial. As it stands, doctors recommend that all women at high risk for thyroid disease or women who are experiencing symptoms should have a TSH and an estimate of free thyroxine blood tests and other thyroid blood tests, if warranted. A woman is at a high risk if she has a history of thyroid disease or thyroid autoimmunity, a family history of thyroid disease, type 1 diabetes mellitus or any other autoimmune condition. Anyone with these risk factors should be sure to tell their obstetrician or family physician. Ideally, women should be tested prior to becoming pregnant at prenatal counseling and as soon as they know they are pregnant. Hypothyroidism & Pregnancy When a woman is pregnant, her body needs enough thyroid hormone to support a developing fetus and her own expanded metabolic needs. Healthy thyroid glands naturally meet increased thyroid hormone requirements. If someone has Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or an already overtaxed thyroid gland, thyroid hormone levels may decline further. So, women with an undetected mild thyroid problem may suddenly find themselves with pronounced symptoms of hypothyroidism after becoming pregnant. Most women who develop hypothyroidism during pregnancy have mild disease and may experience only mild symptoms or sometimes no symptoms. However, having a mild, undiagnosed condition before becoming pregnant may worsen a woman’s condition. A range of signs and symptoms may be experienced, but it is important to be aware that these can be easily written off as normal features of pregnancy. Untreated hypothyroidism, even a mild version, may contribute to pregnancy complications. Treatment with sufficient amounts of thyroid hormone replacement significantly reduces the risk for developing pregnancy complications associated with hypothyroidism, such as premature birth, preeclampsia, miscarriage, postpartum hemorrhage, anemia and abruptio placentae. For a woman being treated for hypothyroidism, it’s imperative to have her thyroid checked as soon as the pregnancy is detected so that medication levels may be adjusted. TSH levels may be checked one to two weeks after the initial dose adjustment to be sure it’s normalizing. Once the TSH levels drop, less frequent check-ups are necessary during the pregnancy. Although thyroid hormone requirements are likely to increase throughout the pregnancy, they tend to eventually stabilize by the middle of pregnancy. The goal is to keep TSH levels within normal ranges, which are somewhat different than proper levels in a non-pregnant woman. Pre-pregnancy doses are usually resumed after giving birth. There is no difference between treating hypothyroidism when a woman is pregnant than when she isn’t. Levothyroxine sodium pills are completely safe for use during pregnancy. They will be prescribed in dosages that are aimed at replacing the thyroid hormone the thyroid isn’t making so that the TSH level is kept within normal ranges. Once it is consistently in the normal range, the doctor will check TSH levels every six weeks or so. The physician may also counsel patients to take their thyroid hormone pills at least one-half hour to one hour before or at least four hours after eating or taking iron-containing prenatal vitamins and calcium supplements, which can interfere with the absorption of thyroid hormone.

My fasting blood sugar is 180 and postprandial is 280. Kindly advice on diet restrictions.

My fasting blood sugar is 180 and postprandial is 280. Kindly advice on diet restrictions.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Both readings are exceptionally high. There is a need for immediate initiation of anti-diabetic treatment and bring blood glucose levels near normal. As regards the diet, to prescribe an exact diet for an individual following details are needed: Weight, height, current dietary pattern, drugs being taken with dosage and extent of daily exercise being done. Few general guidelines are: 1) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida. 2) Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. 3) Total caloric intake should match need based on ideal body weight, extent of physical activity and glucose levels. 4) Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Ideally in a well controlled diabetes patient FBG should be < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Ciplox is an anti-bacterial agent, used to treat various bacterial infections. It has got no role in diabetes treatment. With a HbA1c% of 9.7 you have an uncontrolled diabetes. This needs appropriate drug treatment plus diet control and regular exercise. Looking at your height an weight the ideal body weight should be about 65 kgs. So there is a need to reduce that. Please come back with correct information, then I will be able to give proper guidane. It is better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the relevant information, then I will be able to give specific guidance as well as needed prescriptions. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines. No drugs can be prescribed. I await your early response. Thanks.

If your blood sugar levels are consistently around 85 -90 mg/100 ml, then there is no need to take any medication. But I would advise you to keep checking sugar level at once every 3 months.

Suffering from Diabetes - 5 Homeopathic Treatments that can Help

Suffering from Diabetes - 5 Homeopathic Treatments that can Help

Diabetes is caused due to hormonal imbalance in our bodies. When the equilibrium between insulin and glucagon (hormones related to the sugar levels in the body) is disturbed, an individual suffers from diabetes. The disease is of two types: Diabete mellitus (Type-I and Type II) and Diabetes insipidus. When your body fails to release adequate insulin, the food that we consume is not properly converted into sugar or glucose. This is Type-I diabetes. On the contrary, if body releases defective insulin, one suffers from Type-II diabetes. Type-1 diabetes is sometimes called juvenile diabetes, or insulin-dependent diabetes. Type 1 occurs more frequently in children and young adults, but accounts for only 5-10% of the total diabetes cases nationwide. The basic symptoms of diabetes include changing sugar levels, excessive urination, thirst, weight loss and a lack of energy. Diabetes is caused due to a number of factors, ranging from environmental matters or hereditary links.

Homeopathic Remedies for Diabetes
Diabetes requires prolonged treatment. Long exposure to allopathic drugs can hamper your body organs due to its side effects. Therefore, it is advisable to take up homeopathic remedies, which have a long lasting effect on the patient. These medicines don’t cause side effects. Here are some of the remedies:

  1. Uranium nitrate: This compound reduces the sugar levels in the bloodstream and also keeps a check on frequent urination. It is prescribed for patients who develop the disease due to assimilative derangements.

  2. Phosphoric acid: This compound is best for the treatment of diabetes that has a nervous origin. The symptoms that are looked for include excess urine and the colour of the urine is milky; poor mental force and general lethargy. The patient can also develop a bruised feeling in the muscles.
  3. Phosphorus: This compound is given to patients, suffering from diabetes and pancreatic diseases, especially tuberculosis or gouty diathesis. The symptoms include dry mouth, dark and watery stool and restlessness.
  4. Lactic acid: It is helpful for treating gastrohepatic type of diabetes. The symptoms that will have to be present in the patient include light yellow coloured urine, dry skin and tongue, thirst, nausea, and costive bowels.
  5. Insulin: Insulin therapy is an important as it helps in maintaining a balance in the sugar levels and keeps the urine free from sugar.
