Please suggest what food to be avoided and what to be taken in case of high uric acid. Pl.specify food.

PG Diploma in Emergency Medicine Services (PGDEMS), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Alternate Medicine
Ayurveda, Ghaziabad
The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

I'm 34 years old male. My weight is 90 kgs and height 5'9" I have been having thyroid problem since last few months and also Uric acid. Im taking Eltroxin 75 mg and Feburic 40. Recently im developing pain in my ankles and neck (LHS). Do I need to change medication? Unfortunately I get very less time to exercise and if I do then I feel fatigued.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, looking at your height and weight your bmi is 29.31 kgs/m2, close to grade 1 obesity. This itself is the cause of feeling fatigued. If you are on treatment with thyroxine then tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l, then only it is considered as in good control and all symptoms are in check. Similarly uric acid also should be below 6 mg. Your efforts to reduce weight will be successful only if hypothyroidism is in check. So please look at tsh levels and inform. Plus please understand if you want to be fit and healthy, then exercising for at least 1 hour a day is a must. No excuse will benefit. Thanks for the question.

My mother is 84 years old, is under severe depression. She is presently having Dayo-OD (250 mg) - 1BD, Tolaz MD 2.5 mg, Censpram 10 mg.advice on this please

M. S. in Psychotherapy and Counselling
Psychologist, Jaipur
hi, I can understand your feelings. I think here your mother's age to be blamed for her depression. In India most of the senior citizens just leave the hope for living because of their weak physical health and thus make themselves mentally and physically weak too. Try to make her happy by providing the atmosphere which she likes. You may invite someone whom she likes to talk to. Provide her with the food which she likes. Don't restrict her to eat . let her move on her own just keep an eye so that she doesn't fall. Put some nice music which she enjoys. Take her to the places like temple or satsang where she used to go when she was well. Tell other family members also to talk to her nicely. Take photographs with her. In short do all the activities which include laughter and happiness. Best wishes for you. regards Sunita

If you have family history (mother, father, uncle aunt, cousins, siblings) of diabetes than probably you have diabetes because of hereditary. To have better control of diabetes you must keep control of your daily caloric control especially avoid direct sugar and jeggary and do not consume oil more than 3 to 4 teaspoon /day. Regular 30 to 45 minutes exercise will also help you.

Hypo & hyper glycemia are common problems asscociated with diabetes which might lead to headache. It is very im[ortant to keep blood glucose levels in check. 1. Kindly have small frequent meals at 2-3 hrs intervals 2. Avoid feasting & fasting 3. Exercise daily but not on empty stomach 4. Be physically active all the time 5. Lose some weight. Losing weight will improve your health a lot. 6. Have fibre rich foods like whole fruits, salads, stews, vegetables, seeds, nuts, whole grains (millets, atta, brown rice, dalia, suji), whole legumes (sprouts, rajma, soyabean). 7. Avoid junk/ processed/ ready to eat/ canned/ preserved/ fried/ sugary foods

I am 35 year old. My Uric acid level is 8.3 and vitamin d is 3.7. I am non drinker and vegetarian.

MBBS
General Physician,
You should consult a nephrologists for your high uric acid level and for vitamin d the eargosterol pigment which is present in the skin gets converted b into vitamin d by exposure to early morning ultraviolet rays of the sun.

My mom is severally effected from uric acid. What precautions should be taken to lesseR this acid? What should she avoid to eat?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
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.

360 Degree Approach For Managing Diabetes

360 Degree Approach For Managing Diabetes

Diabetes is a very common lifestyle disease, which happens when your body is not able to produce the insulin hormone or does not know how to use it in the right way. In such a scenario the glucose remains in the blood, and causes your blood sugar level to shoot up. It is a common knowledge that diabetes is a home for other diseases. Therefore managing it or preventing it is of utmost importance and in order to the same, one has to focus on the overall health and fitness of your body. 

But managing diabetes is a challenge that most patients face every day. This is because there are so many aspects to be kept in mind right from workout to food to stress and general health, all of which work together to help you maintain the right blood sugar levels.

Here goes a holistic approach to aid you manage diabetes: 

  1. Keep a record of the food you consume: When you are learning to control the level of blood sugar in your body, it would be very helpful if you maintain a journal of what food items you are eating every day. This will make it easier for you to monitor your diet and even if you indulge in some delicious savory, you can easily bring about a balance by eating the right amount of healthy fruits & vegetables for the following days.
  2. Exercise daily: Make exercise a part of your daily routine and empower yourself to fight diabetes. Types of exercises you can follow are brisk walking, basic weight training to boost your strength, swimming and yoga. Yoga postures which are highly beneficial in managing diabetes are Pranayam (deep breathing exercises), vajrasana, chakrasana, etc. which either enhance the insulin secretion or glucose utilisation.
  3. Be careful about your feet: Diabetes can lead to neuropathy and in the worst case, it may cause injuries in feet that go in-noticed because low pain sensation. Therefore, proper foot care is critical. You should wash your feet regularly with cold water and pat dry with a clean, dry towel & do make it a point to inspect the feet in front of a mirror. If there is a nerve damage along with numbness, you may notice blisters, sores, bruising, swelling, calluses or skin breakage. Thus, you will have to be very careful while inspecting your feet every day.
  4. Get rid of extra belly fat to reduce insulin resistance: It is a vicious circle, as extra belly fat can eventually lead to insulin resistance and insulin resistance can eventually lead to weight gain, but in order to manage and control diabetes it is important that this chain must be broken. Therefore, daily exercise of minimum 20 - 30 mins is very much required. to help you get rid of belly fat and control diabetes. 
  5. Control Blood Pressure & Cholesterol if high: Diabetes is a host of diseases and diabetic people will eventually suffer from high blood pressure and cholesterol problem. Diabetes is a major reason of artery damage, which in turn leads to high blood pressure. In order to, maintain a healthy heart and to prevent yourself against any cardiovascular diseases it is important that you keep you cholesterol and blood pressure in check. 
  6. Get the right treatment for sleep apnea and sleepiness during the day: Sleep apnea refers to a condition that causes breathing interruptions numerous times in a day. It is triggered by faulty signals coming from your brain or due to blocking of the airway by soft tissues present in your throat. People affected with sleep apnea are more likely to have this disorder, which leads to insulin resistance and may also be called a roadblock for controlling diabetes.
  7. Brush and floss on a daily basis: When you are not able to control your diabetes level, it can lead to high level of glucose in the blood. Also, it can increase the level of glucose in the saliva, which in turn paves the way for a surge in tooth decay. Also, having diabetes makes it difficult for an infection to heal and thus, if you develop a gum disease, it may become very hard for you to get rid of it. So, if you make a habit of brushing and flossing regularly, you would be able to maintain good oral hygiene and save your teeth and gums from developing any disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Tsh value of 5.03 milli units/l, is just above the normal limit. This condition is called as sub clinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is advised. Overt hypothyroidism is considered when tsh level crosses 10 milli units/l. The precautions to be taken include avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, radish, mustard and coffee. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits (all types of fruits). In addition daily 1 hour exercise is a must. That will help inremaining fit and healthy. No medicine is required for now. Thanks for the question.

What You Should Not Eat If You Have Thyroid Disease
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thyroid is not a condition that can be controlled with a change in the diet. However, there are certain foods, which should be avoided or at least their consumption should be limited if you are suffering from thyroid disease. Let?s look at some of them:
Soy
The processed and high-phytoestrogen forms of soy, like shakes, powders, soy milk, bars, and supplements should be avoided. Soy inhibits the absorption of thyroid hormone. Soy should not form the main part of your protein diet if you suffer from any kind of thyroid disorder.
Iodized Salt
Though it is a proven fact worldwide, that iodized salt is essential for the prevention of iodine deficiency. But in excess, it is prone to be very harmful, especially for those suffering from thyroid disease. It hampers the normal functioning of thyroid if taken in excess.
Mini-Meals
In case of people who are suffering from thyroid, the concept of grazing mini meals throughout day, might actually just have the opposite impact. These patients should instead have fewer meals, placed further apart, as many mini meals will disrupt their metabolism, and misbalance their leptin and insulin levels.
Coffee
If you are a thyroid patient, you should take special precautions, especially if you are a coffee person. You should take your coffee when at least an hour has passed after your thyroid hormone replacement medication. If you take it within an hour, your coffee will actually disrupt the effectiveness of your medication, by affecting its absorption.
Peanuts, Pine nuts, Linseed
Having a handful of these daily will block thyroid production.
Cabbage, Broccoli
If you have thyroid disease and consume a meal of steamed broccoli once in a while and likes to take spinach in your omelet on daily basis, it is still fine. However, excess intake of these two foods, is not at all good for you. So, take a note.
Gluten
Gluten is found in mostly wheat, rye and barley, along with most of the processed foods. This is one more thing which thyroid patients should avoid.
In most of the above mentioned foods, the hampering and disruption of thyroid production happens, when they are consumed in raw state. It means that if taken in cooked form and in limited quantities, a thyroid patient can consume these things.
Raw forms should be avoided altogether. However, in cooked or steamed form, a thyroid patient can actually derive the health benefits from the foods listed above.
In most cases, thyroid imbalances are misdiagnosed, or even overlooked. However, though you cannot cure it purely on the basis of consuming and avoiding certain foods, you can certainly increase your chances of curing by observing the dietary precautions.
