Magji, I have gone through the details, every thing looks fine. RBC number is low (3.97 million/cc) Rest of the parameters look normal. But glucose (if fasting) then it is in the pre-diabetes range, similarly HbA1c% 6.5 shows there may be diabetes. So it is better if you get a OGTT done in you local pthology lab. Thanks.

The chest pain appearing after hard work but not during mild exertion might be due to decreased blood supply to heart so an ECG at rest may be normal. You should get a stress cardiogram or treadmill test, which may suggest some ST T changes. Instead of doing this or that test better be guided by a qualified cardiologist and do as advised.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medication will depend upon your blood sugar value.

I have a problem with high uric acid. Why does this occur? I am 57 years old, very fit, row, run and swim 4 days a week.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
uric acid causes 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, dried peas, 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.

You seem to be over occupied with your own thought process. Yes being introvert is one of the reasons for the way you feel. You are reading too much between the lines and so your concentration on the happenings around you is less and you think you are absent minded. You have got a kind of guilty conscience about your so called bad qualities, which can be corrected by sincere efforts. Having sugar level 135 is not anything which you have to worry for. The feeling of weakness might be due to your negative thoughts and loss of appetite and poor nutrition. The same may be the cause of mouth ulcers. Think on a positive note and many things can change dramatically.

My TSH level was around 7 about 2 years back. I was advised to take Thyroxine /Eltroxin 50 mg tablet. Recent test shows it has gone down to 0, 29 level which is below the normal level. Please advice whether I should continue with the tablet? What other measures suggested.

Tsh coming to lower levels is good. But depending upode t4 and t3 levels thyroxine does may have to be decreased one step down. But please do not stop talking your medications by yourself. Complete thyroid profile will help in deciding next step.

Mr Shiva, If you have T2 DM, then it should be properly treated with oral drugs and/or Insulin depending on sugar levels. I am sure you are already taking necessary treatment. Apart from that you have to take a balanced and restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs), blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. You should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat cheese, ghee and butter. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise daily for more than 1 hour.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus occurs due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is true with t2 dm. In t1 diabetes there is no insulin production by beta cells of pancreas, usually due to autoimmune problem. There are anti bodies against beta cells. T2 dm is a familial disease. If both parents have diabetes then 75% of off-springs are likely to it. It is also a preventable disease. Persons with pre diabetic stage can prevent or delay developing of diabetes by adapting a healthier life style. 1) maintain normal weight, avoid central obesity (fat around abdomen), 2) adapt an active life style, exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walk is ideal, 3) take a proper balanced diet, avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed foods. 4) refrain from alcohol and smoking 5) maintain a bmi <23 kg /m2.8) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication will depend on your blood sugar level.

I am type1 diabetc since 2012. What is insulin resistant

MD - Consultant Physician, Certified Diabetologist from USA, CCEBDM, Advanced Clinical Course in Cardiology (USA), Fellowship in Diabetes (Liverpool), Diploma in Family Medicine (U.K.), M.B.B.S.
General Physician,
Insulin resistance is a condition when body produces adequate amount of insulin but still it can not act on cells to produce expected lowering of blood sugar. It happens in case of type 2 diabetes. But, in type 1 diabetes, body is unable to produce insulin or produces very very less amount of insulin. Thats why, insulin is the mainstay of treatment in type 1.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

I have been diagnosed with Thyroid disorder (TSH) for last one year. My TSH in Nov 2015 was 7.7. That time my doctor advised to take Thyrox tab (50 mg). Then in March 2016 the TSH was Zero. My doctor suggested to continue with Thyrox (50 mg). My latest TSH level is 6.817. What should my Thyrox dose. Also, do I need to take any calcium tablets along with Thyrox tab. Pls advise.

Hi lybrate-user, thyroid disorder or hypothyroidism cannot be completely cured with allopathic mode of treatment, it can only give you suppression of the disease but not complete cure. You should take homoeopathic treatment for best results and that too side effect free. You should start taking calcium and vitamin b12 in your diet as well as in supplements. For homoeopathic treatment contact further.
