Hi I am 44 years old. My HbA1c is 6.8%. For last 15 days my fasting sugar level is between 95-110 and pp is between 105 to 130. I am not taking any medicine should I start taking medicine for diabetes? Some times I feel heaviness on head and dizziness whenever I think about my diabetes. Why it happens. Is it due to high uric acid in the body. My uric acid level is 7.0. Should I start medicine for uric acid, if yes please suggest me name.

Hi Your diabetes is fairly controlled. With diet and exercise you can reduce it further without any change in your medicine dose. For your age I would recommend to target a HbA1C of 7 and less than that to prevent any complications in future.

Mr. lybrate-user, To give a specific diet chart lot more details are needed like patients weight, height, blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, extent of daily exercise, present dietary pattern. Without knowing all these details it is difficult to give a diet plan. If you want to have a detailed diet plan then please come in a private conversation with all the above details. In the meantime he should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Thanks.

What Causes Infertility in Women?

DGO, MAOGD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Panchkula
What Causes Infertility in Women?

Infertility is a condition that affects approximately 1 out of every 6 couples. An infertility diagnosis is given to a couple that has been unsuccessful in efforts to conceive over the course of one full year. When the cause of infertility exists within the female partner, it is referred to as female infertility. Female infertility factors contribute to approximately 50% of all infertility cases and female infertility alone accounts for approximately one-third of all infertility cases.

What causes infertility in Women?

1. Damage to your Fallopian tubes: These structures carry eggs from your ovaries, which produce eggs, to the uterus, where the baby develops. They can get damaged when scars form after pelvic infections, endometriosis, and pelvic surgery. That can prevent sperm from reaching an egg.
2. Hormonal problems:  You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn't going through the usual hormone changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus.
3. Cervical issues: Some women have a condition that prevents sperm from passing through the cervical canal.
4. Uterine trouble: You may have polyps and fibroids that interfere with getting pregnant. Uterine polyps and fibroids happen when too many cells grow in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus.
5. Ovulation disorders: Ovulation disorders, meaning you ovulate infrequently or not at all, account for infertility in about 25 percent of infertile couples. These can be one of the following:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): In PCOS, complex changes occur in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and ovaries, resulting in a hormone imbalance, which affects ovulation. PCOS is associated with insulin resistance and obesity, abnormal hair growth on the face or body and acne. It's the most common cause of female infertility.
  • Hypothalamic dysfunction. The two hormones responsible for stimulating ovulation each month, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) are produced by the pituitary gland in a specific pattern during the menstrual cycle.
  • Premature ovarian insufficiency. This disorder is usually caused by an autoimmune response where your body mistakenly attacks ovarian tissues or by premature loss of eggs from your ovary due to genetic problems or environmental insults such as chemotherapy. It results in the loss of the ability to produce eggs by the ovary, as well as a decreased oestrogen production under the age of 40.

Increased uric acid level causes Gout. There are many drugs available in market which reduce the uric acid level in blood. But before I go for any drug I would like you to consult your physician as Gout causes very painful and swollen joints which later interfere with your daily activity. Sometimes it may even bring deformity in joints. So I suggest you to get the complete health check up done before you start any medication. Note: health is wealth.

Fasting and post meal blood glucose values seems quite high. Get your HbA1c test done. It is approx average of last 3 months blood sugar level and more reliable. You need to start medication. Please consult any diabetologist with reports.

Hello, There is slight increase in TSH levels which indicate borderline Hypothyroidism. Due to hypothyroidism, the hairloss occurs as well as greying of hair also takes place. So, keep taking medication as per advised by your physician. Medication: For premature greying and hairloss, you can take homoeopathic medicines - Weisbaden 200/ twice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night only. Take them for 4 weeks, then get back to me.

Dear , you are anxious. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi, I am 33 years male who got severe pain in left pain overnight, which made me unable to move and put my foot on ground. Then I consulted the doctor who gave an injection with pain killers and advise for blood test to check Uric acid. After result the Uric acid was 7.2 for which he advised me to avoid red meat for 2 months. Please advise the correct diet and treatment.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The correct diet is avoid foods that worsen uric acid levels foods to eat occasionally (moderately high in purines, but may not raise your risk of gout): fish and seafood (other than high purine seafood) oatmeal, wheat bran, and wheat germ.

I hope that blood pressure and blood sugar levels are under control. Only thing bothering you is lack of sleep. Take a glass if warm toned milk with a spoon of honey added to it. Take care about rest of calories, you can balance by deleting other items worth 200 call in this milk food. Listen to soothing music, read good books, don't watch violence on tv. Meditation before sleep helps.

Hi Tsh of the 11.5 for a 67 year old male, i am taking thyronorm 50 mcg. What is the solution now .
Hello, The solution is to bring TSH level down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in control. You will have to check TSH level after 6 to 8 weeks of starting treatment with thyroxine or the current dose that is being taken. If TSH level is not as mentioned above then dose may have to be increased. Thanks.
