My blood uric acid level is 7.How to control the level to normal. What to eat and what not. I am also loosing weight.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

My blood uric acid level is 7.How to control the level to normal. What to eat and what not. I am also loosing weight.
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.

Suffering from Diabetes? Tests That Should Be Done Regularly

MD
General Physician, Secunderabad
Suffering from Diabetes? Tests That Should Be Done Regularly

Diabetes is a disease characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from body’s inability to produce and/or use insulin. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps maintain your blood sugar levels.

Diabetes if untreated, over a period of time, may cause damage to blood vessels, nerves, kidney and many other organs of your body, causing a variety of complications like difficulty seeing, tingling and numbness in the hands and feet or an increased risk for a heart attack or stroke.

You should undergo these  10 examinations periodically if you are a diabetic:

1. Blood sugar levels

You should get your blood sugar levels checked regularly as advised by your doctor. Blood sugar levels are checked by two types of tests: fasting blood sugar test and postprandial blood sugar test. The frequency of getting these tests done varies from person to person on the basis of age, type of medication and severity of the condition.

2. Hba1c test

Hba1c test is the most common test done to evaluate how much free glucose has attached itself to red blood cells in the body over the last three months. This test should be done every 3 months.

3. Blood pressure:

Try maintaining your blood pressure less than 130/80 mmhg. Patients who manage to keep their pressure under control are less likely to suffer from the common problems associated with diabetes such as heart attacks, blindness, or kidney damage. Get your blood pressure checked at every doctor’s visit or twice every month.

4. Eye examination:

You should visit an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) once every year for a detailed eye examination. The doctor would check for any damage to the nerve tissues on the back of the eye (retina). Diabetes may lead to decreased vision and in some cases blindness as well. So a regular annual eye checkup is essential to prevent any eye damage.

5. Foot examination

You must visit your doctor for a foot examination at least once every year to get your pulses and reflexes checked in your feet. You may also be examined for any unhealed cut, infections, sores or loss of feeling anywhere in your feet. The risk of having a foot problem increases if you are a type 2 diabetic. Get yourself examined every 6 months, if you had foot ulcers before.

6. Cholesterol profile test:

Cholesterol is a waxy substance present in your blood as hdl (good cholesterol) and ldl (bad cholesterol). With diabetes, the ldl levels and triglycerides tend to increases while the hdl levels decrease, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. You should get your cholesterol profile checked every year regularly. If you already have high cholesterol then you should have this test more often.

7. Kidney tests

Kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood and removing waste products from the body. In diabetics, the blood vessels in the kidneys get injured and your kidneys cannot clean your blood properly. Your body will retain more water and salt than it should. You may have protein in your urine. Generally, this damage happens many years before it gives any symptoms. So, you should get a yearly check for your kidneys through kidney function tests (blood tests) and a urine test.

8. Dental checkup:

Get yourself examined every 6 months by a dentist for your gums, teeth and regular cleaning.

9. Liver function tests and thyroid stimulated hormone test:

Liver function tests (lft) should be done once annually as it helps determine the health of your liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes, or bilirubin in your blood. People with type-1 diabetes should also get their tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone) check done every year.

10. Vitamin b12 test:

In case you are taking metformin from a long time, then you must get your vitamin b12 levels checked as the use of metformin may cause vitamin b12 deficiency. Periodic measurement of vitamin b.

Know More About Infertility

Ayurveda, Thane
Play video

Hello, everybody. I am Dr Pradnya Aptikar, practising as an Ayurvedic Gynaecologist in Thane from last 17 years. I am an Infertility specialist. Is video me hum baat karenge Common cause of Infertility ke baare me which is Tubal block.

Isme fallopian tube block hone ki wajah se natural conception nahi ho pata hai, to patient ko Infertility ki problem face karni padti hai. To hum thoda samah lete hai ki ye Tubal block kya hai aur Ayurved isme kya kar sakta hai?

To jese ki aap yahan pe dekh rahe hai ki ye uterus hai, or ye fallopian tubes hai and ovaries. Periods ke 14th-16th day pe alternate ovaries se ek ek egg nikalta hai. Aur vagina se sperms ooper chale aate hai. Aur sperms agar acche hai to ye chale aate hai fallopian tube me aur ye egg ko fodd dete hai, jise hum kehte hai Fertilization. To ye fertilization tube main hota hai. To agar in tubes me swelling ho, ya tuebs blocked ho, paani udhar jama hua ho, to yeh tubes kaam nahi karti hai aur idhar fertilization ki process ho nahi paati hai. Iski wajah se fir Infertility ka saamna patient ko kara padta hai.

To abhi hum ye jante hai ki ye causes bohot tarah se hote hai. Lekin jo commonest cause hota hai, wo bohot baar pet ka TB hone ki wajah se hume tubal blocks dikhai dete hai. TB hone ke ilawa bhi jo other factors hai, jese ki infection, koi swelling, to isme Endriometrosis bhi rehta hai, jiski wajah se chipka chipki hojati hai, adagens hojate hai aur tubal blocks hojate hai. To ye tubal blocks ki wajah se conception nahi ho pata hai.

Ayurved iske baare me kya kehta hai?

Ayurveda me hum 2-3 tarah ki chikitsa karte hai. Mere clinic me ek jo chikitsa rehti hai tubal block door karne k lie, hum Uttara Basti naam ki ek chikitsa karte hai. Jese ki vagina ke raste hum kuch dawaiya ander daal dete hai, jese ki Uterine cavity ke ander hum daal dete hai. Ye process hum safety process ke under karte hai. Ye dawai ander tubes me chali aati hai aur hum tubes ko clean kar dete hai. Ye jo chikitsa rehti hai, wo hum periods khatam hone ke 10 din ke ander karte hai 3-5 din tak. Case to case ye differ karta hai ki 3 din ho ya 5 din ho. Hum jo ander dawai daalte hai use Uttara basti kehte hai. Isse tubal blocks door hote hai, aur agar tube me koi soojan ho ya fir koi adagens ho to wo kam hojate hai.

Lekin agar TB zada faila hua hai, agar grade 4 ka TB hai, to tube khulne ke baad bhi hume chances nahi milte hai. Iske baad test tube baby ka he hume istemaal karna padta hai. Lekin Uttara basti ka upyog hoga ya nahi hoga, ye hum case dekhne ke baad he bata sakte hai.

Uttara basti ka ek faeda bhi hota hai ki jo uterine cavity ki endiometry lining ko badhane ke liye hum kar sakte hai. Agar kisika tubal blockage khul nahi raha ho ya hume test tube baby ke liye jana pad raha ho, to test tube baby ke liye endometrial line accha hona chaie aur uski quality bhi acchi honi chaie. Iske liye hum Uttara basti ka upyog kar sakte hai. aur iske liye hum pet se bhi kuch dawaiya dete hai.

For more information, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Just as your overall health will benefit from eating a balanced diet, so too should the health of your hair. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so don’t put foods in your body that speed up hair loss. You may be experiencing a thinning on top already, but you can counteract this (or at least slow it down) by eating from every food group daily -- concentrating on foods that are rich in protein, iron, silica, and zinc.

Mr Pranjul, If you get a fasting and after food blood sugar check, it is easy to find out whether diabetes is there. If is present then only option is to start treatment with proper anti diabetic drugs either oral or with insulin injections. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are required.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If one has unrecognized diabetes with very high blood glucose (hyperglycemia), then there is a possibility of loosing considerable amount of glucose through urine. Because if blood glucose goes above 180 mg, kidneys are not able to reabsorb it. So a great deal is lost in the urine. This leads to increased thirst, increased hunger, excess urination. Plus there will unexplained weight loss with severe weakness and fatigue. But if you control blood glucose with proper medications, plus dietary restriction and regular exercise, then there is a possibility of regaining lost weight and usual fitness. You should strive to maintain FBG <100 mg, PP: 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. When that happens you can regain fitness and gain some weight. Thanks.
