In 2003 I had pain in my knee. On doctor's advice had my blood test. Level of uric acid was found to be 7.6 and was diagnosed Gout.Since then I had been taking Lodiric SR-250 capsule a day.Since then the level of uric acid remains 4.2 to4.8 only. This capsule is not available now in the market. Please Advise whether I should take some other medicine as you prescribe or discontinue it.
Hello doctor, I have a friend (23 yr). She have bipolar 2, fibromyalgia & small cerebellum. Very recently her father got to know that in checkup, because of her frequent head spins. Like once in a month. I am very much worried about her. The hospital admitted her with other half-mad type patients. Don't know what's the meaning of admitting her with them. Can you kindly tell me she will live by operation in any good hospital ? If not, is there any way she will be alright? Also I forgot to mention that, in her childhood she took (her parents actually) 100 power dose of capsules because of serious typhoid. That's why is still kind of healthy. Please suggest me how to give her good treatment and she will live normally ?

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.
