Mr. Lybrate-user, the problem could be damge to blood vessels supplying to lower limb. To confirm how serious is the problem it is essential to get a colour doppler test as well as angeiography of lower limb vessels. With that it is possible to asses the extent of blood supply. Plus it is vital to have excellent blood sugar control with fasting near 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. You are very young, so get these investigations and consult a vascular surgeon along with your diabetologist.

I am having knee pain for that what precious do I have to take

tell me some tips to get relief from this knee pain.
There are various causes of knee pain for example excessive standing, excessive walking, obesity or even some kind of injury. To relieve the pain: 1. Avoid standing or walking for too long at a stretch. 2. Avoid climbing stairs if possible. 3. Do some knee strengthening and stretching exercises. 3. To relieve pain do til oil or mahanarayana tail massage over the knee and some hot fomentation. If however there is any swelling associated with the pain consult a doctor immediately.

Foods To Avoid In Hyperuricemia (GOUT)

Foods To Avoid In Hyperuricemia (GOUT)

Gout, commonly known as Hyperuricemia, is a painful form of arthritis and occurs when high levels of uric acid in the blood forms crystals which cumulates around a joint in a body. Uric acid is generally produced when the body breaks down a chemical called Purine. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in form of urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. Gout diet can be followed to control the uric acid but may not completely cure it.. Medication also is needed to manage pain and to lower levels of uric acid, though the line of treatment may vary from person to person.
It is very necessary to keep track of what you eat if your uric acid levels are higher. Foods which may trigger gout attacks are organ meats, red meats, sea food, alcohol and beer. On the other hand, dairy products, soy products and vitamin C supplements may help prevent gout attacks by reducing blood uric acid levels, says studies.
There are many foods which need to be avoided to control uric acid. One should see how much content of Purine content a substance contains. High Purine foods as well as moderately high Purine foods and fructose foods are not recommended by doctors if one has higher uric levels. Organ meats like liver, kidneys and brains of either chicken or lamb should be avoided. Sea food such as salmon, tuna, king fish, prawns and crabs triggers the risk of sudden increase in uric acid levels in a body. Jaggery, honey, sugar (which is a direct carbohydrate), corn syrup should be completely avoided as it has high sugar levels.
As there are some restrictions in your diet there are also few things which shall be consumed in proper proportion such as various fruits including jamun, guava, cherries which helps in reducing the uric acid levels and reduces inflammation too. All vegetables are extremely healthy including potatoes, peas, mushrooms, eggplants and dark green leafy vegetables which has ample amount of anti-oxidants. All legumes, nuts beans, brown rice may certainly help in balancing diet and nutrition. Green tea is very beneficial as it contains anti-inflammation properties and is full of anti-oxidants which helps in detoxing the body. Oil is necessary as it lubricates joints and smoothens the movement. Edible oils including Canola, Coconut, Flax seeds and Olive oil is highly recommended.

Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.
