I am 35 years old, having high uric acid. Please suggest my diet chart. I am having high bp and fatty liver too.

I am 35 years old, having high uric acid. Please suggest my diet chart. I am having high bp and fatty liver too.
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. Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab.

Dear doctor, if one's weight is reduced due to chronic anxiety, will his bad cholesterol LDL be reduced in blood?

Dear doctor, if one's weight is reduced due to chronic anxiety, will his bad cholesterol LDL be reduced in blood?
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There are certain misconception about cholesterol itself. Cholesterol is actually produced by liver and cholesterol is needed for body's day to day functioning. Therefore, do not worry too much about cholesterol. To answer your question, Chronic anxiety can reduce your weight due to metabolic change. Cholesterol, whether bad or good, factor depends on your food intake and dietary pattern. Fatty fool do increase cholesterol level even when you are anxious. But all these are usually momentary. The peripheral answer to your question is NO. There are many other factors needs to be considered. Take care.

Hi. Whenever I sleep in day time I feel this pain in my mid section of chest after getting up. I have checked with doctors and had taken an ECG as well as endoscopy test for which I was told that I'm suffering from some indigestion and gastric problem. Please let me know what can I do to reduce this chest pain as I can't avoid to work in night shifts.

Dear, Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruits, cucumber, salads. These are alkaline in nature and will help you balance the acids in your body. Also, make sure you keep a proper gap between you meals and sleep time and drink lots of hot water before your meal and before sleeping. Do take adequate volumes of dahi and stop eating non-veg and spices till your system stabilizes. Regards.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habits, as your basic investigations are normal it is unlikely of cardiac origin - avoid spicy, fried, sour & junk food, also restrict intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, avoid alcohol & tobacco if you take - chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than three large meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - have 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration - take tab Pan-40, 1 tab daily morning half an hour before breakfast - do regular exercise like walking, jogging, swimming, playing games for 20-30 min, also include yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min daily morning to relax your mind & to keep your body fit.

If all these tests are fine then there is very little probability that the pain is due to heart. Please stop worrying and fearing that you have some heart problem instead focus of controlling anxiety and reducing day today stress & worry in your life by meditation, yoga or counselling.
