Increased uric acid can some times cause joint pains, however, itching on the skin is not likely due to increased uric acid. It may be due to fungal infection. So some antifungal drug treatment is required.

Hello lybrate user biscuits are allowed and good only if it is maida free eg. Marie gold. Can be taken along with tea. Fruits are always best choice as it can fulfill the required nutrition and improves overall health. But always seasonal fruits are good to be taken eith in the morning noon or evening preferably.

I am a Diabetic patient, so please suggest me how will I get cure. Please please please.
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - you need to start medication initially to bring down sugar levels. The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

You are saying you have hypothyroidism and sugar problem but it appears you are taking only eltroxin tablets for correction of hypothyroidism. What about diabetes treatment? diabetes rarely produces any noticeable symptoms until it becomes really severe. Hypothyroidism is unlikely to add to diabetic symptoms. Basically feeling weak, tired and lethargic are the symptoms one notices.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. 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.

My friend. Each of these levels in blood has immense long term impact on your system. And if the blood reports are correct, then you definitely need medications. If you can not control the level of these components in your blood but you are gonna have serious complications in later life. My general advice would be, firstly stop smoking and drinking immediately if you have any of these addictions. Reduce junk food and fatty food to a minimum. Avoid meat, especially mutton. Along with these you also need quite a few medications. Consult with your doctor or feel free to consult me privately via lybrate so that I i can prescribe you the medications after thorough assessment of your condition. Will be happy to help.
