Urine routine from good pathology lab, usg abdomen and KFT can give exact picture related to your kidney function status. If all are normal then not to worry much. Check your blood pressure reguraly. If this is on higher side consult with physician.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

At your age hypertension is not normal and requires detailed evaluation of why it is high and when medicines are started they also need to be titrated based on the response of each individual body. So I hope that you had remained in follow up of your treating cardiologist. If not then please consult your treating cardiologist again.

Hi, you have not mentioned whether your diabetes is controlled or not. I assume its controlled on above medicines. You can get a stress echo done and if positive then get an angiography done.

Then after 3 months we repeated the test it was 420 mg/dl. So we stopped the medicine and tried home remedies and ayurvedic drug called arjunarishta. Yesterday we repeated the test it is 915 mg/dl. Can you please suggest the medicine and proper diet? His age is 32 years. Weight 80. Height 5 feet 7 inches. And what fruits can be taken please help me out. As I have heard it leads to heart attack. Please please help me out. Thanks.

Hi

If LDL cholesterol has been as high as you have mentioned and it is now 900 mg/dl then you need to understand a few things - 1) In indian scenario safe limit of LDL is 110 mg/dl or less a value more than this increases the risk of heart attack and the higher it gets the higher the risk. 2) This value is too high and according to the weight and height you have mentioned he is overweight also, so your husband's full lipid profile as well as medical work up should be done to understand why is he having such a high value. So please consult a cardiologist for tests like ecg, echo, liver function test, Kidney function test, TMT etc risk factor evaluation etc and starting of treatment 3) The dose of crestor given in march was inadequate for such a high LDL value. Maximum dose should have been started. And you should start it now without any delay. 4) In addition to medicines You should also begin with lifestyle changes like - eating a healthy diet both for weight loss and cholesterol control (Take a dietician consult for a diet chart), daily brisk walking, start slowly and increase to 40-45 mins per day, quit smoking and alcohol. But it is very important that you get your husband evaluated and treatment started by a cardiologist as early as possible. So please don't delay in seeking medical help and treatment. Take care.
