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. Ulracet sos for pain in joints. Doctor may be give corticosteroid oral or inject direct in to joint.

Is there any treatment for getting healthy and getting rid off from sugar disease and to know about its remedy?
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

Dear , your sugars are slightly higher than the recommended levels. You can try improving your diet & exercise regimens as you are already on maximum doses of your medications. There is one new tablet invokana 100 mg which is available now. It is expensive. Approx 40- 45 rs per tablet. You can try taking it once a day after breakfast & see. This will be in addition to the other tablets you are already taking. If this is fine with you then probably your sugars might come down. Or else you need to start insulin.

Hello DR's, My TSH level was 11 during my 3rd month of pregnancy. I was medicated to have thyrox 2.5 and am having now at 6 months after delivery. I have three qs regarding this 1. I lost my baby due to trisomy 18. Will this thyroid not detected before pregnancy could cause this? 2. Due to need to continue the tablet even now? 3. Am taking it regularly, but for the past two days I feel a pain in throat, what can be reason?

I am rather surprised that thyroid testing was not done before pregnancy. Because it is now recommended that every female desirous of having a baby must get her thyroid test done. If tsh levels are high particularly in first trimester then embryonic development is definitely affected, causing congenital defects. Secondly during pregnancy if tsh is high there can be affection to fetal development, misscarriage or fetal death. So it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2 even before expected conception. Plus through out the pregnancy levels should be: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2.5, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. If these levels exceed then above mentioned problems are a possibility.

Mr. Lybrate-user usually ideal bp should be maintained around 120 - 130 systolic and 70 to 80 mm hg of diastolic. Higher than recommended diastolic pressure is no good, does not allow proper relaxation of the heart. As regards triglycerides, which are in control with 128 mg, still it is better to continue the treatment. Also it is essential to exercise regularly, which help in maintaining lipids in normal range. Thanks.

What are the symptoms of high sugar? What do a patient feel when the sugar is high.
High sugars for some reason are not always associated with symptoms. We see a good number of patients who are quite ok with high sugars. Symptoms like excess thirst, excess hunger, weight loss and tiredness can be there. In some urine problems come first and in some teeth infections and in some shoulder pain.

Mr. lybrate-user, Even though you have asked for Ayurvedic treatment, I am answering the query. The reason is looking at your Fasting & Pp glucose levels it is clear that diabetes is totally uncontrolled. This is not good at any age, particularly at your age. Only real option for controlling diabetes is available only with modern medicines. So my suggestion is please stick to that, treatment can be improved with newer drugs or if need be Insulin may have to be used. Ideally to be in control fasting glucose has to be closer to 100 mg & PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Otherwise a number of long term complications related to diabetes will start manifesting. In other medical practices unfortunately there are really no remedies to control diabetes, even though tall claims are made by them. Still you want to go for ayurvedic treatment then choice is entirely yours. Thanks.

For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.

No way go ahead, only control of hypothyroid and understanding about sexuality and child birth is necessary, to avoid difficulties.

How To Cure Infertility Through Ayurvedic Herbs?

Infertility is a medical condition which is characterised by problems in successful conception, even after prolonged and frequent unprotected sex amongst a couple. Infertility may occur due to problems with either the male, the female partner and in many cases both of them. This condition can cause much strife in a relationship not just within the individuals but also be a cause for social embarrassment. The causes of infertility could be-

  1. Testicular injury or deformed testis,

  2. Irregular menstrual periods,

  3. Problems with erections,

  4. Uterus is ill-shaped,

  5. premature ejaculation,

  6. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome,

  7. Pelvic inflammatory diseases caused by Sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea and Chlamydia,

  8. Scanty sperm count,

  9. Thyroid disorders,

  10. Blockage of the fallopian tube.

Other lifestyle related reasons could be excessive alcohol consumption, aging, diabetes, obesity, high pressure and as a side effect of radiation therapy or other medications.

Ayurveda and Infertility-

According to Ayurvedic scriptures, infertility occurs when there is a deficiency of nutrients in the Shukra Dhatu of an individual. This might occur as a result of indigestion and excessive toxic content in the human body. This could be caused due to excessive consumption of spicy foods or if they have chronic stress or anxiety. The Ayurvedic remedies boost the nutrition of the Shukra Dhatu in order to boost fertility. The most potent Ayurvedic herbs which can cure infertility are as follows:

  1. A prescribed consumption of the powder of dried banyan bark along with sugar might help to cure infertility.

  2. The inclusion of cumin and turmeric powder in regulated dosages in your daily food might also help to facilitate fertility.

  3. A consumption of the root of the herb Ashwagandha for 3 times a day has also been shown to be beneficial.

  4. A daily consumption of the powder of Vanari Kalpa in warm milk might help in curing any problems related to the ejaculation of semen.

  5. Consuming a mixture of the powder of Vrushya vati in warm milk, it might help to increase the sperm count.

  6. The consumption of Ayurvedic preparation of phalasarpi (a mixture of the herbs Kustha, manjistha, Triphala, tagara, haldi etc.) might help to deal with the problems of infertility in women.

  7. Yoga also has many effective asanas or poses which help boost both male and female fertility and thus may help in correcting infertility caused due to physical factors such as injuries or deformities.

  8. Changes in lifestyle also have to be brought in such as quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption among others.

Lybrate-user, all the symptoms being mentioned including weight are pointing towards not very well controlled hypothyroidism. When on treatment ideally tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l, then only all the symptoms are in check. Plus efforts to control weight are fruitful. Since you have only mentioned" always in control" without tsh levels, it is difficult to comment. Your bmi is 25.36 kgs / m2,(normal 23 kgs/m2), to reach that bmi it should be 63 kgs. There is no special formula or exercise to reduce weight. You have do a daily workout of over 1 hour, brisk walking, jogging or running are good options. In addition muscle strengthening exercises also are needed, at least on 2 days of week. It is better if you join a gym and do the workout under the instructions of a trained professional. Your diet has to be also controlled. It should provide exact calories based on 63 kg wt. Hence, intake should provide 63 x 25 cal = 1575 calories per day. Thanks.
