Mr. Lybrate-user, increased uric acid can cause joint pains or may lead to a condition called gouty arthritis, which may begin as a severe painful swelling in big toe. Precautions to be taken are reduce intkae of foods containing high purines like red meat, orggan meat, sweetened drinks, alcohol, hugh fat products, fishes like sardines, scallops, herrings, trout, salmon and mussels, mushrooms. Increase the intake of whole grain products, milk products with low fat. Skinned chicken and eggs can be consumed.

I am a diabetic patient and I have also a 16mm kidney stone. What are the reasons of kidney stone. Please tell me?

I am a diabetic patient and I have also a 16mm kidney stone. What are the reasons of kidney stone. Please tell me?
Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form. Types of kidney stones Knowing the type of kidney stone helps determine the cause and may give clues on how to reduce your risk of getting more kidney stones. Types of kidney stones include: Calcium stones. Most kidney stones are calcium stones, usually in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels. Your liver also produces oxalate. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine. Calcium stones may also occur in the form of calcium phosphate. Struvite stones. Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow quickly and become quite large, sometimes with few symptoms or little warning. Uric acid stones. Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout. Certain genetic factors also may increase your risk of uric acid stones. Cystine stones. These stones form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids (cystinuria). Other stones. Other, rarer types of kidney stones also can occur.

Yes. Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. .consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

I am suffering from thyroid for last 5 years kindly advice me what to do next taken medicine eltroxin 75.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I will advise you to go for homoeopathic treatmnt for Thyroid.Although,the path of homoeopathy for your problem iss quiet difficult but very fruitful because you are already taking ELTROXIN for 5 years. Either go on taking just 1 tab eltroxin early morning life long with increased dose at regular intervals along with it side effects or try to adopt a difficult but fruitful path of homoeopathy for next 2-3 years in which no doubt that you will have to regularily take 2 homoeopathic medicines 3 times a day as compared to ELTROXIN( Only once a day nd finish for the day) but with time we will slowly decrease the dose of ELTROXIN( In next 8-12 months of taking homoeopathic treatment you will get rid of ELTROXIN altogether) .And once Eltroxin is out of your life we will start decreasing the dose of homoeopathic medicines.nd in 2-3 years you will be medicine nd Thyroid free. So ass saidearlier either choose the difficult but fruitful part of homoeopathy for 2-3 yearss or just take i tab ELTROXIN life long along with the sideeffects of such mediciness. Choice is yours

Which medicine should I take to reduce uric acid? whats the diet for it?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
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. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

As a diabetic you should not aim to gain much weight. If still you want, increase proteins in your diet and exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are many people with high uric acid, but only a few develop joint related problems. Not that every person with high uric acid has gouty arthritis. So you need not worry. You can still avoid foods which have high purines like: certain fishes, sardines, trout, herring, shell fish, salmon, scallop, mushrooms, mussels. Plus organ meats, red meat in general, alcohol, high sugarated drinks, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. Can consume milk products, green leafy vegetables, salads, whole grain products, legumes etc.

My father is 43 years old. He have high sugar. Since 1 year. To decrease what shall I do.
To give any advise I should get some more information like - fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, weight and height and level of physical activity daily and dietary habits. Since he has confirmed diabetes, treatment with anti diabetic drugs shoul be started immediately. In addition he should exercise for more than 1 h every day. He should avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos, and grapes. Try and maintain his weight near normal for his height. (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). Consume more green vegetables, salads and complex carbs. If you want any specific advise please come in a private conversation with all the details.
