You need to continue using antifungal cream for a month even after it has been cured as the fungus resides in the skin layers & has to be eradicated completely. Then I think, there would be no relapse.

Your symptoms suggest that you are suffering from immuno-suppresion which may be due to both diabetes and HIV infection.Get your blood tested for HIV1 and 2. If positive you should be treated with Anti HIV drugs. If negative you should control your blood sugar properly with insulin/ diet /excercise and control oral thrush with local antifungal agents.

Diabetes I a life long disease. You should continue medicines even if sugar is controlled. Yes, its very important to get it checked regularly because diabetes is a progressive disease and you may need an increase in medicines with time and also you need repeated testing for diabetes complications.

What is a good diet for a sugar patient? Please help me.
Mr ashok, a person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet which should have carbs, proteins and fats in proper proportion, plus avoid sweets, sugar, junk foods, pastries. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted amount of fruits. Caloric intake should be based on weight and sugar levels.

How I can control the high uric acid levels in my body.?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
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. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.

Continue ur thyroid medication.keep tsh in control.check it 3 months apart for atleast twice. Irregular periods may get corrected when tsh gets corrected. For irregular periods consult a gynaec for low dose oc pills for 3 months. For 5 feet 1 inch the normal range of weight is btw 43.1kgs to 53kgs. It bmi is to be calculated rather than just gaining wt. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain even otherwise. Moreover with age metabolism slows down and at gain may happen. Inspire of all this u may eat dairy products, dry fruits like cashewnuts, healthy meals for 3 times a day.

This must be done urgently. - The best medicine for Weight loss is Simple Diet + Daily exercise. - Cut down Oils/Sugar/Maida/Ghee/Salty stuffs from your diet. - Cut down Puris/Parathas/Pizzas/Burgers/Fried Rice. - Add more Fruits /Salads/Proteins to your diet. Double your water intake. - Eat slowly and mindfully. Take 1600 calorie diet daily. - Exercise daily Cardio for 40-60 mins. This is essential for good health. - Reduce socialising/company of people who are addicted to junk food and overeating. - Love yourself and respect your body.

I have sugar disease, what tablets to be taken to control blood sugar levels please tell me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, you are already taking glimepiride and metformin for controlling blood sugar. That is the right treatment. If your treatment is appropriate then fasting sugar should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Apart from drugs diet control and exercise are equally important to control blood sugar.
