Hello Sir, I have been suffering from severe ache in left heel. I couldn't walk for a few steps when I get out from bed in the morning. I have been taking pain killers and applying volini, hot and cold packs. But the ache is aggravating rather than diminishing. I do suspect either Plantar or Heel spur. please guide me further. Does diabetes have such symptoms only in one leg?

Hello Sir, I have been suffering from severe ache in left heel. I couldn't walk for a few steps when I get out from b...
Try few home remedies for heel pain rest - avoid running or standing for long periods, or walking on hard surfaces. Avoid activities that may stress the heels. Ice - place an ice-pack on the affected area for about 15 minutes. Do not place bare ice directly onto skin. Footwear - proper-fitting shoes that provide good support are crucial. Athletes should be particularly fussy about the shoes they use when practicing or competing - sports shoes need to be replaced at specific intervals (ask your trainer). Foot supports - wedges and heel cups can help relieve symptoms. If these doesn't help please see a physiotherapist who can teach you exercises which stretch the plantar fascia and achilles tendon, as well as strengthening the lower leg muscles, resulting in better stabilization of the ankle and heel. You may also be taught how to apply athletic taping, which gives the bottom of the foot better support. Prevention of heel pain involves reducing the stress on that part of the body. Tips include: barefeet - when on hard ground make sure you are wearing shoes. Bodyweight - if you are overweight there is more stress on the heels when you walk or run. Try to lose weight. Footwear - footwear that has material which can absorb some of the stress placed on the heel may help protect it. Examples include heel pads. Make sure your shoes fit properly and do not have worn down heels or soles. If you notice a link between a particular pair of shoes and heel pain, stop wearing them. Rest - if you are especially susceptible to heel pain, try to spend more time resting and less time on your feet. It is best to discuss this point with a specialized health care professional. Sports - warm up properly before engaging in activities that may place lots of stress on the heels. Make sure you have proper sports shoes for your task. Best wishes.

Hello, Madam, You have not mentioned your TSH value as well as amount of thyroxine being taken. Unless those details are provided, I can not comment. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that your BMI is 29.16 kgs/M2, close to being grade 1 obesity. This means your hypothyroidism is not in control. For conception to occur TSH value has to be maintained <2 mU/L. Thanks.

I am 43 years old I have severely affected in back pain and joint pain due to uric acid. Kindly give your valuable guidance for control the above.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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.

Mr. lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is necessary to bring TSH down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only one will be freem from all the troublesome symptoms. Hence, if TSH is 6.5 mU/L, then it should be reduced to the value mentioned above. Therefore, there is a need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken now. After increasing the dose TSH should be checked 6 weeks later to see if desired level is reached. Thanks.

If a normal indvidual takes insulin then blood sugar goes critically down or precipitate hypoglycemia. It could be fatal sometimes. Hypoglycemia symptoms are palpitations, tremors, sweating, confusion etc in sever case coma and death. Without diabetologist or physicians prescription it is difficult to get insulin injections. Imo he is not taking insulin.

How can I find out myself i, am diabetes patient at home without checking blood by systems of it?
Dear lybrate-user, Feeling tired and lack of energy can be seen in many cases like low Haemoglobin levels, low blood pressure, diabetes digestion issues, infections or fever etc. It may be due to simple lifestyle issues like untimely food, lack of proper sleep/ oversleep, lack of physical activity etc. You can correct all your daily habits like food (eat balanced food, better avoid processed ones), sleep minimum 6 hours a day, drink adequate amount of water and indulge in physical activities. I believe your problems may be solved. Following are some of the early symptoms of diabetes, but a presence of few symptoms doesn't mean that you have diabetes. It is always better to consult a doctor for confirmation, before getting unnecessarily tensed. 1. Increased Sweating may be accompanied by body odour 2. Tendency to Urinate frequently 3. Excessive thirst 4. Excess Hunger 5. Wound/ sores takes a long time to heal 6. Feels exhausted and fatigue 7. Dry mouth and itchy skin 8. Burning sensation of palms and feet 9. Blurred vision I would like to stress again that if you find any of theses symptoms, it has no meaning that you suffer from diabetes. It may be due to a variety of issues.

Lybrate-user, since you are having hypothyroidism, that could be the cause foe excess bleeding. If hypothyroidism is well controlled tsh should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, otherwise many of the symptoms reappear. So please check tsh level and comeback with the result, if level is higher, then thyroxine dose will have to be increased. Further pain during menstruation can be controlled by taking certain painkillers and anti spasmodic drugs. Thanks.

Hello I am Dr. Tanvi diabetes and thyroid (endocrinologist) specialist from mumbai. Your tsh level is higher than normal. It suggest of subclinical hypothyroidism. You need to repeat the test if you have any doubts. Treatment of this situation depends on cerrtain factors. Considering her age it would be fine to treat it. Treatment will also depend on if she has any symptoms. If you are planning to conceive a child, history of miscarriage, symptoms, family history many factors depend. If not controlled it can have serious issues specially in her fertility. If you wish you can consult with me regarding further management with your complete medical history and latest blood reports in private consultation.

first thing is to take thyroxine tablets in the prescribed dosage every day with out fail. Then exercise regularly so that weight is maintained. Avoid soya containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Use whole grain flour for making breads (rotis), take good amount of green vegetables (other than those mentioned), fruits, onions and garlic. If your hemoglobin is normal and your monthly cycles are normal then there should not be any difficulty in having a baby. Consult your gynecologist.
