BENEFITS OF HOMEOPATHY IN TREATMENT FOR THYROID DISEASES OVER CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE
Homeopathy for Thyroid
Thyroid diseases could seem very simple to be treated but are actually not. Your treating doctor should be aware of other diseases you suffer from or if you are on any other medications before starting the thyroid medicine through a conventional mode of treatment. Conventional thyroid medicines are known to trigger certain diseases.
Effect on hair: There are many conventional medicines which are known to cause hair loss and conventional thyroid medicine is one of them.
Effect on blood sugar levels: Thyroid medicines could cause the blood sugar to increase. Glucose intolerance could change and diabetes may worsen. Persons suffering from diabetes should monitor their blood sugar levels closely and talk to the treating doctor when they encounter an abnormal rise in blood sugars in spite of taking the recommended dosage of medicine. Vice-Versa conventional medicines could even reduce the absorption of thyroid medicine.
Effect on heart: Conventional medicine for thyroid diseases may cause the heart to work harder than it has been used to. Hence people with unstable angina or other heart diseases should discuss with their doctor before starting the thyroid medicine. Special monitoring may be required in special cases as this medicine could reduce the effectiveness of the medicine.
Effect on nursing mother: A nursing mother who is on conventional thyroid medicine could have small amounts of thyroid hormones pass in breast milk. Inform your doctor if you are breastfeeding while using this medication.
