185 fasting is alarming. Get a good doctor. Check out treatment once again. Roasted chicken without oil, ghee or cream is permissible.

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. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat. (biochemic) kali dichrom 12x, bio combination number 7, (homeo) gymnema sylvestre q, syzygium jambolanum. Its for diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, To avoid diabetes one should have an active life, with regular exercise of over 1 hour, maintaining normal weight and taking a balanced diet that provides exact calories as needed based on ideal body weight. One should avoid too much of sweets, no extra sugar, no deep fried foods, junk foods, no pastries and bakery items, avoid sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing foods, no highly processed foods. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking. In case of nonvegetarian diet avoid red meat. Skinned chicken, fish, eggs without yellow are good. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Reduce salt intake to avoid increase in blood pressure. Thanks.

It depends on your sugar level, If your sugar level is under control you can take 1 serving of mango i.e 1/2 cup (100 g) of mango but you have to cut down your carbohydrate intake from another meal.

Hi, I am 28 years old, I got diabetes one years ago. Since after diabetes diagnosed I tried to keep my sugar levels under control by controlling my diet. But last year my work profile has changed where I am supposed to sit continuously for hours and hours, thus making my sugar levels up around 280. (On medications, daily 1 hr gym workouts) What can I do to avoid the raise in my sugar levels. Please suggest me. I am very much worried. Why my sugar levels are raising abnormally.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that your wife is hypothyroid. If could had been better if you had provided us with your tsh, ft4 levels in a proper format as some data is missing. Advise - please continue with thyroid hormone replacement as advised as this hormone is now deficient in her body and nothing else other than these tablets can replace it. Hope this solves your query anything more then please feel free to revert.

I am 23 year old. From past 2 year I am suffering from thyroid. I have problem of weight gain. I am now totally dependent on allopathy medicines. I want to treat it naturally. Is their any way to treat? How can I control my weight gain?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Since the question has appeared in front of me, I thought it is better to clarify certain things to you. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder. So the only treatment is to supplement that hormone. There is no other treatment. Weight gain can be controlled, but first tsh levels should be brought down to 3 to 4 milli units. Ml. If presently that level is high, then efforts to control weight will not be effective. Along with drug treatment diet control and exercise are necessary. If you still want t try any other therapy you can go ahead. Best of luck.

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 500 mg 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.
