A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes, then first thing is to take appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Then take a balanced and restricted diet that provides exact calories matching ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of exercise done daily. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Also avoid alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSh 1.8 mU/L is a good level, showing hypothyroidism is in good control. I would not have advised the reduction in dosage. But your doctor has advised so, please tkae that dose and check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, if the level is <3 mU/l thhen same dose can be continued. Because TSH should be maintained between 2 to3 mU/ L for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. If you have any doubts pease do come back. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, if your father follow the diet and do walk for 30 minutes in 5 days a week, he will control his diabetes, for that ask him to take one spoon fenugreek seed (soaked overnight) and take then in early morning daily, he should include all green leafy vegetable in his diet, multigrain cereals, nuts, avoid achaar, papad, sweet food items and artifical sweeteners. In fruits he can eat citrus fruits orange, mausambi, apple, pomegranate and other he can take but amount does matter, if you need the diet plan for him.

If your sugar level comes to normal limits, it does not mean that you should stop the medicines. You will still require a small dose of medicines to prevent the sugar from rising back. Ofcourse, your diet and exercise control is very important and should be continued so that the dose of medications that you require will be minimum.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting 111 mg & pp 149 mg /100 ml is in the category of pre-diabetes. Normal blood glucose: 70 to 110 mg fasting, pp <140 mg, pre-diabetes fasting 108 to 125 mg & pp 141 to 199 mg. Confirmed diabetes fasting 126 mg and above & pp 200 mg and above. Since you are in a pre-diabetes stage, it necessary to take certain precautions like avoid sweets, deep fried foods, pastries and bakery items, items made from maida and high fat containing foods. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day to maintain normal weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, I do not know who has suggested whisky is good for diabetes. Alcohol in any form is bad for diabetes. It gives empty calories, does not provide any energy, damages liver, affects awareness of hypoglycemia, affects appetite, damages intestinal mucosa. I am not aware how it is useful Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam, if you are on adequate dosage of levothyroxine then TSH should have been maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are usually well in control. Since your TSH is still 9.93 mU/L, the dose is inadequate. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism will give all the symptoms complained. These symtoms will go away only when TSH is brought down to above mentioned level. Thanks.

Uric acid is a chemical created when the body breaks down substances called purines. Purines are found in some foods and drinks. These include liver, anchovies, mackerel, dried beans and peas, and beer. Most uric acid dissolves in blood and travels to the kidneys. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. To help reduce the amount of uric acid in your system, regularly taking 500 milligrams of vitamin c will decrease your uric acid levels in a month or two. Avoid cakes, pastries, cookies and other sugary delights which are rich in saturated fats and trans fats. Homeopathic medicine vary from patient to patients conditions so for this we need detail history.
