I am 33 years old male. And my uric acid LEvel 7.8 Its dangerous? If it dangerous then pLs tell me control Procedures.
Hi lybrate-user Since your uric acid levels are high, you need to take extra precaution in your diet to control the levels along with taking medicines. You need to watch your weight. If you are trying to reduce weight or you are on diet, kindly try to lose weight slowly. Avoid taking heavy protein rich diet like meat, sausages, poultry, chickpeas, kidney beans etc. Take low fat milk and food to avoid weight gain. Kindly eat leafy vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses high in purine daily. Homoeopathic treatment is recommended for your case to recover with minimal recurrence. Kindly consult a good homoeopathic doctor near you.

Meat - Red vs White Facts Check

Meat - Red vs White Facts Check

Meat forms an essential part of the daily diet of many people. But it often gets difficult to choose between white meat (chicken or fish) and red meat (beef or pork or mutton) due to the numerous health benefits offered by both. Moreover, both kinds of meat have some health risks as well, which should be kept in mind while consuming either of them.

Read on to find how each type of meat may affect your health, and, which will be more beneficial for your body.

Fat content

People who are more conscious about their weight often tend to choose white meat over red meat because of its lower fat content. For example, fat content in chicken is only about 11%, whereas pork contains about 45% fat. Moreover, the saturated fat content of red meat is about 2.64 times that of white meat.

Protein content

100 gm of chicken breast has about 29.80 gm of protein, whereas the same amount of lamb and pork contain 22.51 gm and 27.55 gm protein respectively. In this case, consumption of white meat will prove to be beneficial as your body can absorb only 74% of the protein in red meat and 80% of the protein in white meat.

Other nutrient content

Red meat is rich in niacin, vitamin b12, riboflavin and thiamine, iron and minerals like zinc and phosphorus. While vitamin b12 aids proper nerve health and ensures that the red blood cells function properly, zinc is responsible for strengthening your immune system.

White meat contains fewer nutrients in comparison to red meat. However, fish contains high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which help in improving lipid profiles and prevent cardiovascular diseases.

Health risks

Consumption of both types of meat has been long associated with increased risk of different diseases. The presence of myoglobin, a type of protein in red meat, is responsible for increasing the risk of certain types of cancer. Also, red meat has been often linked with increased chances of hypertension and heart diseases.

These days, feeding antibiotics to chicken for enlarging their size has become a common practise. So, consumption of this type of meat increases the amount of drug-resistant bacteria in your body and reduces the effect of useful drugs too.

White meat and red meat both have their own health benefits and risks, so including small amounts of both in your diet will prove to be beneficial for your body. Determine the amount of each type of meat you will consume depending on your body's specific requirements.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user thanks for asking. The cyst in the scrotum is a problem but not a disease. We have to do simple excision. It is a very minor surgery and is done under local anaesthesia. You can resume to your daily activities immediately after resting for half an hour to 1 hour.
