Understanding Uric Acid and how to manage them.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,

Understanding Uric Acid and how to manage them. 

Uric acid results from the breakdown of compounds known as purines in the body. Purines are both produced in the body and consumed through the diet. Normal values of uric acid in the blood range from 2.4 to 6.0 milligrams per deciliter for females and 3.4 to 7.0 milligrams per deciliter for males. Uric acid levels higher than 7.0 milligrams per deciliter in the blood can cause crystals to form and build up around joints, resulting in a painful form of arthritis known as gout. Many foods contain high levels of purines, and eating these foods can lead to high levels of uric acid in the blood.

Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients:
  1.    Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid.
  2.    Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute and uric acid soluble to facilitate excretion by kidney.
  3.    Restriction or elimination of alcohol.

What to Avoid:
  1.    Shell fishes, red meat, mince meat, meat extracts, organ 
        meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral).
  2.    Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole, etc.). Other dals 
        are allowed.
  3.    Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, French beans, 
        brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple.

Diet Rules:
  A.    Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking 
        rice or in chapatti dough.
  B.    Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, 
         curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt 
         palatable.
  C.    Remove the salt shaker from the table.
  D.    Avoid salted nuts/ biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys.
  E.    Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved
       foods; eg. Bakery products
  F.    Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might 
        cause an electrolyte imbalance.

Recommended Foods: 
  a.    Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue
        berries 
  b.    Bananas 
  c.    Celery 
  d.    Tomatoes 
  e.    Vegetables including cabbage and parsley 
  f.    Foods high in bromelain (pineapple) 
  g.    Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers,
        tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes) 
  h.    Low-fat dairy products 
  i.    Complex carbohydrates (whole grain breads, cereals) 
  j.    Chocolate, cocoa 
  k.    Coffee, tea

Although Purines (organic compounds, which create uric acid breakdown in the body) are found in vegetable sources, they don't cause the same amount of uric acid buildup in the body that meat sources do. In fact, fresh fruits and vegetables reduce acid levels in the body and it is often advised to avoid red meats, organ meats and highly processed foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables are encouraged so the patient can increase alkalinity in the blood. 
Therefore, rather than attempting to find foods that are free of purines and uric acid, it’s important to know how to increase the body’s alkalinity, which naturally reduces the body’s acidity. Fresh, non-processed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are the way to go.


Foods identified that lowers your Uric Acid 

1.    Water
Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.

2.    Cherries
Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints. Cherries also neutralise the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid.

3.    Apple
Malic acid in apple neutralises uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal.

4.    Lime
The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily.

5.    French bean Juice
Another effective home remedy for gout is French beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid.

6.    Celery seed
This is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results.

7.    Berries
Berries especially strawberries, and blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties so include them in your diet.

8.    Apple Cider Vinegar
Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid.

9.    Pinto Beans
A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

10.    Vegetable Juices
Carrot juice in combination with beet and cucumber juice is also very effective. 100 ml each of beet juice and cucumber juice should be mixed with 300 ml carrot juice and taken daily.

11.    Low fat dairy products
Low fat dairy products like milk, curd help lower uric acid level.

12.    Foods rich in Vit C
Include Vitamin C rich foods and supplements in your daily diet to reduce uric acid in the body. It disintegrates uric acid and forces it out of the body through urine. Good sources of vitamin C are Awla, Guava, Kiwi, Sweet lime, oranges, capsicum, lemon, tomato and green leafy veg.

13.    High-fiber foods
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fibre may help lower uric acid levels in your blood. Dietary fibre may help absorb uric acid in your bloodstream, allowing it to be eliminated from your body through your kidneys. Increase the consumption of dietary soluble fibres such as Isabgol , Oats, Broccoli, apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, blueberries, cucumbers, celery, and carrots, barley.

14.    Bananas
Bananas are also beneficial in lowering  uric acid.A banana-only diet, consisting of eight or nine bananas per day for three or four days, may alleviate the swelling and inflammation of joints caused by gout or other forms of arthritis more rapidly.

15.    Green tea
Consume green tea on a regular basis to control hyperuricemia (high uric acid levels) and lower your risk of developing gout.

16.    Grains
Eating grains that are more alkaline such as jowar, bajra are helpful to reduce the level of uric acid in the body.

17.    Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers
Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers are some of the veggies that you need to start including in your meals. Tomatoes are one of the best vegetables that you could have for lowering uric acid. Fresh tomato is alkaline by nature and when it is exposed to the blood stream it increases the alkalinity of the blood.

18.    Dark Chocolate, cocoa
Theobromine is an alkaloid that is similar in structure to caffeine. It is found mainly in the cocoa bean and is at the highest levels in dark chocolates. Theobromine also can relax the bronchial muscles of the lungs and according to a small study, was more effective than codeine in relieving coughing. According to Dr. Shmuel Halevi at Acumedico.com, theobromine has the highest concentration of uric acid per gram of food than any other substance”, as reported by Livestrong.

19.    Raw vegetables
Raw vegetables like potatoes or corns are effective to reduce uric acid in the body. Have them raw or steam these vegetables.

20.    Omega-3
Essential fat Omega 3 from flaxseeds, walnuts, fishes like salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines reduces inflammation and swelling

Dear user. I can understand. anal sex is not conventional way of sex. Therefore it is not advised. But there is no need to feel guilty. Just because there is no way you can correct the past. Regarding infections, YES. There are many chances of infections to your body or penis. Do consult a doctor when you have symptoms. Take care.

Thumbsucking is a natural reflex for children. Sucking on thumbs, fingers, pacifiers or other objects may make babies feel secure and happy and help them learn about their world. Young children may also suck to soothe themselves and help them fall asleep.
However, after the permanent teeth come in, sucking may cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and alignment of the teeth. It can also cause changes in the roof of the mouth. Pacifiers can affect the teeth essentially the same ways as sucking fingers and thumbs, but it is often an easier habit to break. The intensity of the sucking is a factor that determines whether or not dental problems may result. If children rest their thumbs passively in their mouths, they are less likely to have difficulty than those who vigorously suck their thumbs. Some aggressive thumbsuckers may develop problems with their baby (primary) teeth.
Children usually stop sucking between the ages of two and four years old, or by the time the permanent front teeth are ready to erupt. If you notice changes in your child’s primary teeth, or are concerned about your child’s thumbsucking consult your dentist.
Tips for helping your child stop thumbsucking:
Praise your child for not sucking.
Children often suck their thumbs when feeling insecure or needing comfort. Focus on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
For an older child, involve him or her in choosing the method of stopping.
Your dentist can offer encouragement to your child and explain what could happen to their teeth if they do not stop sucking.
If the above tips don’t work, remind the child of their habit by bandaging the thumb or putting a sock on the hand at night. Your dentist or pediatrician may prescribe a bitter medication to coat the thumb or the use of a mouth appliance.

1. Avoid caffeine found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. Quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. [use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, tvs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness. 4. Get your cbc esr and fasting thyroid profile done and revert.

Dear lybrate user, there is no such medicine in homoeopathy which can be just before sex. If you want to try homoeopathy then take homoeopathic mother tincture salix nigra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water to increase your sexual timing.

Some men are indeed endowed with a lot of foreskin tissue, and occasionally this can interfere with normal sexual function. If a doctor confirms what you say by physical examination, a circumcision operation can easily be arranged whereby all your problems would be solved.

For tension relief sleep is ok. But excessive sleep leads to laziness loss of concentration in regular work. In sleeping time spend time outside. After work please meet friends and family share your office work and study things with your friends. After sharing the severity of the problems reduces then you relaxed then the next day you work properly you may not feel anytime tension. Tention reduced automatically your sleeping time also reduced so please make friendliness with others. Do not concentrate too much on studies and work. Both are important but too much leads to so many problems so be friendly be happy all the time best wishes.

Add two to three tablespoons of baking soda to a basin of warm water. Soak your feet in this solution for 10 to 15 minutes. Rub the affected area with a pumice stone to remove the dead skin. Another option is to mix together one teaspoon of baking soda, a little lemon juice and water to make a paste.
