Lybrate-user, methi dana is good in any season. I do not understand why it should cause a problem as mentioned by your friend. In fact I eat about 12 g of roasted methi before every food intake (break fast, lunch & dinner) daily during all seasons. Hemorrhoids need not occur in every one. So if any one wants to take methi dana as suggested can go ahead. Thanks.

I was prescribed Pre Aldonil 150 in place of Pre Aldonil 75, which I am taking presently. The doctor went abroad soon after advising me this, and is not going to be reachable for a long time. I cannot find 150 in Mumbai market. My chemist suggests I take 2x75 instead if 1x150 once daily. Is it safe for me to accept this suggestion? A quick and clear answer will be much appreciated. Thanks!

As for as your mother is concerned she needs to see a diabetologist so that dietary advice and appropriate medicines can be prescribed. As far your wife is concerned please ensure that she has a well balanced diet high in proteins like fish, chicken, pulses and keeps the wound site clean and dry.

Very heavy knee pains and unable to sit BP is normal but some times high Sugar levels are high and taking tablets.

Very heavy knee pains and unable to sit
BP is normal but some times high
Sugar levels are high and taking tablets.
Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

conception can be difficult at this value of tsh and even if you do it is not good for the fetus. you can increase the dose to 75mcg and get it repeated after 1month. testing before 1 month does not give the required change that is expected.

There is no spine block injection. There is an injection called epidural steriod injection given for the disc problems of the back and neck if there is radicular pain due to disc bulge and which is known in the mri. The results are variable from individual to individual and some experience long term results even with single injection and some require 2 to 3 injections in a gap of few months. But it is mostly without side effects.

Mr Radhe, Treatment of hypothyroidism is by taking thyroxine tablets and that too for whole life. This is the only option in treating hypothyroidism.

Hello, controlling of hypothyroidism in turn tsh levels is very important. For conception to occur and pregnancy to be successfully completed tsh has to below 3 milli units. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units. 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. Even for conception to occur levels have to be below 2 millii units/l. The fluctuations have to be avoided. If you have any doubts please come in a conversation with latest thyroid test details, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

I have swelling at the base of 1st toe in both the feet. As such there is no pain or fever but flexibility of the toe is affected resulting in pain at the time of walking. I can not wear shoes because of swelling. I am 66 years old. Orthopedics diagnose it a gouty condition. The uric acid is 5.6 mg/dl. Ra factor and c-reactive protein are negative. X - ray reveals bony growth of the toe. I also tried physiotherapy without any positive result. Can any doctor suggest any treatment?

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.
