I am 22 years I am suffering from uric acid. What should I do?

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. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

FOOT CARE IS MOST IMPORTANT PART OF DIABETIC PEOPLE.

I always tell my patients to take care of the feet as they care about their face. Following tips should be practised regularly.

1.Inspect your feet daily. if your eyesight is poor than tell someone else to do it for you.

What should I look for ??
Inspect for:Skin or nail problems: Look for cuts, scrapes, redness, drainage, swelling, bad odor, rash, discoloration, loss of hair on toes, injuries, or nail changes (deformed, striped, yellowed or discolored, thickened, or not growing).
check if your foot is swollen, red, hot, or has changed in size, shape, or direction.

2.Don’t ignore leg pain. 
Pain in the leg that occurs at night or with a little activity could mean you have a blocked artery. Speak to your Diabetologist doctor immediately.

3.Nail cutting. 
If you have any nail problems, hard nails, or reduced feeling in your feet, your toenails should be properly trimmed

4.No“bathroom surgery.” 
Never trim calluses or corns yourself, and don’t use over-the-counter medicated pads.

5.Keep floors free of sharp objects. Make sure there are no needles, insulin syringes, or other sharp objects on the floor.

6.Don’t go barefoot. Wear shoes, indoors and outdoors.

7.Check shoes and socks before putting them on for any pointed foreign object like stone or nail.

Make sure your socks aren’t very tight which can restrict blood flow.

8.Have your circulation and sense of feeling tested.  Doctor will do it for you.

Hello doctor my uric acid level is 8.9 I do not have any kind of problem as of now. Still Should I have to take medicines. Please advice.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if there are no symptoms then no need to take any treatment. But you can take certain precautions like avoiding organ meat, aerated sweetened drink, alcohol, sweet corn syrup, high fat foods, certain fishes like sardines, trout, herring, salmon, mussels, mushroom etc. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, fruits, milk and milk products and low fat cheese. By adapting these things uric acid level can be reduced.

Avoid refined sugars like juice, cakes, soft drink, sweets, maida etc eating fruits are fine as they contain fructose and not glucose eat more complex carbohydrates which take more time to digest like eat jovar, bajre, nachni, roti avoid wheat and rice avoid starchy food, increase protein like soya, nuts, dal, curd, sprouted, beans limit on fats 3 to 4lit of water.

You can control diabetes and heart problem by following a proper balanced diet chart. You need to have more of whole grain fibrous food rather than refined food product. Eat at regular time interval. Do exercise regularly. Avoid taking sweet products. Eat fruits, vegetables in liberal amount. I can offer you that all important advice right on your smartphone. Consult me privately on lybrate to get a customized diet-plan as well as the lifestyle changes needed.

I am suffering from high sugar.
How to get control and full Treatment. Please help.
If you have diabetes then appropriate treatment has to be initiated to control blood sugar effectively. Because high blood sugar can damage most of the vital organs like eyes (retina), kidneys, small and large blood vessels, heart, lower limbs and nerves. To suggest any treatment I need to know fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs being taken with dosage. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the deatils then I will be able to guide specifically. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines np prescriptions.

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.

Of course not.

More infections than usual. If you want to clear then check blood sugar level fasting sugar level and postprandial blood sugar level.

Dear lybrate-user, She must have to control the consumption of rice per day. If her blood sugar is too high check her sugar daily. Diabetes is a disorder not a disease to be cured but it can be controlled. If she love to eat rice give her small bowl of brown rice or a small bowl of white rice starch free along with green veggies n salads. Remember all the food shud be taken in limitations. Check the doses of medicine intake by her. I will advice you to share the prescription of medication n your contact details for further suggestions n counselling. Thanks.
