Hello, her tsh level which is 0.53 milli units/l is with in the recommended level (by american thyroid assocn), for conception. Before conception it is better to have tsh between 0.1 to 2 milli units and even during first trimester. Later 2nd trimeste it should be 0.3 to 3 mill uits and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So my suggestion is you can go ahead and try for pregnancy. Hair fall is usually the last thing to get corrected once hypothyroidism comes in control. There is no need to reduce the dose of thyroxine 100 mcg now. May be post delivery you can look at that. Thanks for the question.

Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout

DNHE, Fellowship in Cardiac Rehabilitation, BHMS
Homeopath,
Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout
Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise.

Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day.

Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily.

Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil.

Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients.

Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day.

Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks.

Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels.

Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body.

Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl
Women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl

Turmeric seems to have effect on reducing the enzyme xanthine oxidase, there by can reduce gouty attacks and uric acid levels. Similarly taking green tea can induce more urine excretion, which can help in excreting more of uric acid. Thanks.

You have written that your father has high blood sugars & he has eye problems. This means he is most likely having type 2 diabetes mellitus. But in the" conditions" section, you have written diabetes insipidus. The 2 are entirely different conditions, though they sound similar. Please clarify.

For a normal weight reducing diet, the quality of food is reduced as per the reduced calorie restrictions. Emphasis is given or more roughage and liquids. The following items are deleted:- a) butter, ghee and coconuts chutney. B) fried food items. C) egg yolk. D) nutrition. E) high calorie fruits like banana. This diet provides about 1000-1200 calories and 40-45gm of protein.

Doctor has diagnosed symptoms of thyroid. What precautions I should take so that my disease is cured?
If the diagnosis is hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine tablets is for life time. Precautions are do not take soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Also avoid high fat milk products, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus diet should be controlled so that weight is not increased as hypothyroidism leads to weight increase.

89 mg / 100 ml is a normal sugar level. This does not give any idea why should there be all those symptoms as mentioned. Please mention following details: fasting. Pp sugar levels (current), hba1c%, weight, height, drugs being taken with dosage. Level of physical activity, dietary pattern and any other disease along with diabetes.

My age is 28 years .I have been on contraceptive pill named dronis 30, (dropirenone and ethinyloestradiol)for 1 year after that my blood sugar level incrased a lot (140 on empty stomac). Now I want to get pregnant soon. Is it possible i will have increased thyroid also after taking the pill

The pills are not responsible for sugar and thyroid problems. Most likely, these are coincidental. First control your thyroid and sugar before planning pregnancy, otherwise there may be difficulty during pregnancy. But controlled sugar and controlled thyroid are relatively safe for pregnancy. Al the best.

1) Whole grains - brown rice, rotis made from whole wheat flour, whole jowar flour and bajra flour, Ragi, Oats 2) Fresh vegetables - they have high fibre content. Also include green leafy vegetables. 3) Fruits - they also have high fibre. Your mother can take apples, pears, Sweet lime (Mosambi), Orange, papaya, guava etc. Mangoes, bananas and grapes have high sugar - hence only consume in less quantity. 4) Protein - pulses, egg, lean meat (fish, chicken), sprouts 5) Milk - low fat milk and dairy products 6) Good fats like Omega 3 and mono unsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumes. Eg; Canola oil, flax seed oil, nuts etc Take frequent small meals instead of 3 big meals. In between meals she can take snacks of fruits, buttermilk, yoghurt etc.

I am 55 years. Go urination every hour at night. No diabetes, or prostate problem.
Usually nocturnal frequency of urine is due to enlargement of prostate. You get sonography for the same. And also give urine for complete evaluation.
