If your father is nearly 7 feet as mentioned above, I will not recommend weight reduction except reduction in salt and sugar which he must have been advised after angioplasty & being diabetic on no sugar. his bp is low. give him more fluids and get checked again. if it is one time reading , do not worry and keep him hydrated by insisting on drinking more water. if bp is constantly lower than 100 , which is highly unlikely but do get checked by your doctor to know the reasons of low bp like low thyroid,anemia.. regarding recent heart attack , do write back about investigations done and numbers of blocks. angioplasty has been done for 1 or more blocks ? aftercare for angioplasty is routine prevention of a heart attack like eating right,moderate exercise,no smoking and no negative stress.

May I know what medication you are taking for controlling diabetes? also please inform me your fasting and pp blood sugar level and hba1c level. These are required to let me know if diabetes is under check. Your data suggests you are a thin person, which is good, but have been like this or have you lost weight of late? I am awaiting your details.

Before I was 59 but because of thyroid and early symptoms of menopause I gained 23 kgs weight. Is it possible to reduce my weight again. What should I do to reduce 4 to 5kgs a month.

Lybrate-user, first thing is to control hypothyroidism with appropriate treatment and bring tsh levels between 3 to 4 units /ml. If this is not achieved, then efforts to reduce weight will not be successful. You are over weight in fact you have grade 1 obesity with 31.06 kg / m2 bmi, so please see that tsh levels are brought to that level and then only you can try reducing weight. It is possible to cut up 2 kg per month provided strict diet control and exrcise schedule is adapted and adhered to.

Dear demyelination is a disease of nerves it effects whole body and causes deficiency in sensation and movement. Homoeopathic treatment is directed mainly towards strengthening of immune system of body. If your immune system become strong further spread of disease can be stopped and if you have patience to continue homoeopathic treatment the disease can be reversed also please consult a experienced homeopath for treatment you may consult me also.

Normal level of vit D is between between 20-50 ng/ml. A level less than 20 ng/ml indicates Vitamin D deficiency. 1. Expose yourself to sunlight for 15-20 minutes daily in the morning 2. Take Milk, cheese, egg yolk, Fish (salmon/mackerel/ trout/sardines/tuna) cod liver oil, Mushroom, cereals, orange juice. 3. If you have deficiency of Vitamin D you have to take Vitamin D supplement 60000IU/week fo r 3 months after consulting physician.

I did a lipid test and my tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone) is 9.2.What does this mean. What should I do to get to normal.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, TSH 9.2 mU/L is high, but still falls in subclinical range. Treatment is advised once level crosses 10 mU/L. Sometimes even at these levels if there are troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism present and T4 level is lower then treatment is advocated. Thanks.

I am suffering from thyroid I put my weight too much present my thyroid level is 0.14 I am using thyroxine 100 mg my doctor (endocrinologist) suggested to me to continue the power for more long time. He feels it helps to reduce my weight is it true? Have I can any side effects to use the high power?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Ideally all symptoms are well controlled when TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. 0.14 mU/L is a lower than expected level. 100 mcg of thyroxine is not going to cause any side effects. With current TSH level you should be able to reduce weight provided regular exercise is done with diet restriction. Thanks.

My uric acid level is very high. What are the causes of high uric acid level in our body?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

My uric acid level is very high. What are the causes of high uric acid level in our body?
The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Long standing diabetes patients suffer from autonomic neuropathy. Which lead to loss of sweat in foot and lower limb area. Autonomic neuropathy is irreversible. You can apply calamine lotion and moisturiser to foot n leg to avoid drying. Antihistaminics like levocetrizine will take care of itching.
