High level of uric acid in the blood is gout & Gout is a kind of arthritis. Dietary measures to overcome gout: high intake of vitamin C -1500mg/day extra fluid can help flush uric acid crystal out. Cherry juice help you alleviate pain & inflammation omega 3- fish like salmon,or fatty acids in flax seeds or nuts help reduce inflammation follow a diet low in fat,low in protein & high in carbohydrate foods which can consumed moderately: beans,mushrooms,cauliflower,cabbage,banana,grapes foods to be consumed occasionally : roots & tubers,country beans,custard apple,chicko exercise is a must,and losing 20 kg in 2-3 months is very unhealthy. Slow and steady can help you lose weight

Mr Abid Ali, If he has developed diabetes then it should be treated with appropriate drugs right away. In his case insulin injections are required, because of renal transplant. Dose of the drug will depend upon blood sugar levels (Fasting, PP and HbA1c%). Plus it is essential to quickly control sugar levels.

Diabetic neuropathy where firstly nerve endings in our body are involved ie in hands and feets causing numbness. Sorry sir I cant help u at this position. You have to take guidance of your physician of 20 yrs. Only he can guide u in right direction.

Dear Dr. my Glucose fasting 110 mg/dL andPP 149 mg/dL. Shall I take dates/jam/honey.
Mr. lybrate-user, FBS 110 mg & PP149 mg /100 ml, is referred as pre-diabetes level. It means you have a tendency to develop diabetes any time during coming years, unless precautions are taken. A modified lifestyle is needed to be adapted to prevent or postpone developing of diabetes. Which means avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing food products and high fat milk products. Plus daily exercise of 1 hour and refraining from smoking and alcohol. Thanks.

Hi I ve query abt thyroid & perimenopause symptoms. I am 45 years old Last year around this time only I got my thyroid test done for d first time & tsh came to 26. My doc suggested 50 power thyroxine Got retest after 6 months. Tsh came down to 8 Got another test after nxt 3 months & this time tsh came down to 4.5 Was supposed to get retest again after nxt 4 months. So this time wen I got my test done. I had taken a break of 10 days before going for d test. So my current test showed rise in tsh. Frm 4.5 (4 months back. Instead of going down it is showing rise. It is showing 14 tsh Doc. All I want to kno is. Is this rise in tsh due to d gap of 10 days that I took? My second prblm is perimenopause symptoms: *hot flushes *frequent urge to urinate *craving *headache. Etc.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, Madam, If one has hypothyroidism, then thyroxine in prescribed dose has to be taken regularly without break. If it is stopped, then TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) will increase because pituitary detects that there is low level of thyroxine and hence starts producing more of TSH. So you should not stop taking thyroxine on your own. When on treatment, to achieve good symptomatic control TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L. Otherwise most symptoms reappear. As regards hot flashes, these usually continue for some months around menopause. There is no specific treatment for that. Frequent urge to urinate is not a part of the symptoms of menopause. Please get your blood sugar checked. Thanks.

Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant

Ayurveda, Hapur
Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant
Seven Easy Steps to Improve Your Fertility and Get Pregnant

About 85% of couples get pregnant within one year, but 1 in 7 couples take longer than a year to get pregnant. The good news is that you can improve your fertility in 7 simple steps in less than 4 weeks:
1. Control Your Weight
2. Timing of Intercourse
3. Improve HIS health
4. Test Your Fertility
5. Eat Healthy
6. Reduce Stress
7. Acupuncture


1. Control Your Weight

Being under or overweight decreases your fertility, and maintaining an optimal weight improves your fertility. The best way to find out whether you weigh too much or not is to calculate your body mass index, the BMI.
Losing some pounds is cheaper than expensive fertility treatments , PLUS with a betterw eight you decrease major pregnancy complications and significantly improve your chances having a healthy baby. So why not try it first?

2. SEX:

Timing of Intercourse in Relation to Ovulation
First of all do you know your fertile days? Do you ovulate? Do you hav e a regular menstrual cycle?
Your fertile days are the 5-6 days leading up to ovulation and the day of ovulation. Many couples don’t seem to realize that you need to make love regularly to improve your fertility. That means making love regularly throughout the menstrual cycles and more frequently, probably every 24-48 hours during your fertile days.
The egg can only be fertilized for about 24 hours after ovulation but sperm can live in the lower portion of a woman's reproductive tract up to five days. You can potentially increase your chances of conceiving by making love during the 2-3 days prior to ovulation.
Finding out when you ovulate is the key:
Create your own Fertility and Ovulation Calendar
Chart your basal body temperature (BBT)
Chart your fertility signs like symptoms and cervical mucus:
Use Ovulation predictor kits (OPKs)

3. Improve HIS Health and Get Him Tested

It takes two to get pregnant. Over 50% of infertile couples have a male issues. Which means that if he doesn't have enough sperms or his sperms are not healthy enough then your chances getting pregnant significantly decline. Do a sperm count and find out if his sperms are healthy and if he has enough of them. Follow these ten tips to improve his sperm count.
Get him checked for varicocele
Remove all toxins from his diet
Add a vitamin and herbal supplement to his diet
Make him lose weight if he is overweight
Keep the testes cool

4. Test Your Fertility at Home

There are several easy ways to quickly assess major aspects of your fertility at home.
Do a Basal Body Temperature Fertility Chart
Check your LH levels
Measure his sperms
Check your vaginal pH

5. Stay Away From Bad Stuff and Eat A Healthy Diet

Alcohol and smoking decrease fertility, make it less likely to get pregnant and increase pregnancy complications once you get pregnant.
Stop smoking. It is common knowledge that smoking is bad for your health, but studies have also shown that women who smoke are less fertile than those who do not. Also, women whose mothers smoked during their pregnancies are less likely to conceive.
Reduce alcohol intake. Drinking alcohol, even in moderation, can decrease fertility. The results of once study show a greater than 50% reduction in the probability of conception when the participants consumed alcohol.
You are what you eat and many doctors now believe a healthy diet PLUS supplements like folic acid can improve your fertility.
So what should you eat?
More monounsaturated fats (like olive oil) and less trans fats (like the kind found in many baked goods or fast foods).
Increase intake of vegetable protein (like soy), while reducing animal protein (like red meat).
More high fiber, low-glycemic foods — like whole grains, vegetables, and some fruits, while reducing the intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars.
Consume moderate amounts of high-fat dairy products — like ice cream, whole milk, and cheese.
No more caffeine. Studies have shown that women who drink excessive amounts of caffeine have delayed conception. In one study, women who drank more than one cup of coffee per day had a 50% reduction in fertility compared to those who did not consume coffee.
Take your vitamins. Especially vitamin E. Women trying to conceive should take a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin in addition to vitamin E. When couples were given vitamin E in one study, their fertility increased significantly.
Try herbal supplements. Herbs like Vitex (Vitamins AND Vitex are in FertilAid), have been used to successfully increase fertility.
The right diet can made a difference because the majority of women experiencing ovulatory dysfunction were also suffering from undiagnosed or sub clinical PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), a condition related to insulin resistance that also affects ovulation.
Check your current prescriptions. Some medications can interfere with fertility. Consult your doctor or pharmacist to see if your current medications could be hindering your chances of conception.

6. Reduce Stress

It’s rarely healthy to live with a lot of stress and the relationship between stress and infertility is less clear. But there are several studies showing that reducing stress may improve fertility.
What can you do to reduce Stress?
Cook
Get regular massages
Exercise
Take long weekends off
Listen to music
Do yoga
Read and write journals
Garden
Pamper yourself
Spend more time with your family and friend
Hold hands with your partner

7. Acupuncture

There are some studies done in women with fertility treatments which show that acupuncture can improve fertility. If after a thorough fertility work-up no specific reason for your infertility has been found, why not try acupuncture? There is little harm to use these methods and it can save you money getting pregnant.

Mr Raj, If one is diagnosed as having hypothyroidism, then treatment is to be taken for life time. Please tell me are on thyroxine tablets now? If on treatment and then TSH is showing 6.34 mill units/ ml, means the dose is not enough, needs to be increased. If not on treatment and having symptoms of hypothyroidism then you need to start now. Plus also have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, low fat milk products, Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise daily for 1 hour so as to aooid weight gain. Plus take that diet gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight.

Ayurvedic medicines (there are not much treatment options for" erectile dysfunction" in modern system).
