Creatinine of 1.12 is acceptable for your age otherwise. However if it was lower earlier and recently it has increased then we need to find out the cause. There are no medicines as such to control it or bring it down. If you have blood pressure keep it in control.

Mr. lybrate-user, A person suffering from either hyperthyroidism (excess activity) or hypothyroidism (les activity), has to take appropriate treatment for that specific condition. These conditions can only be controlled, there is no permanent cure. Treatment has to be for lifetime. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose levels mentioned point to being pre-diabetic state. This means one can develop diabetes any time if care is not taken. In such a situation avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, bakery items and sweetened aerated drinks is necessary. One may be liking sweets but if heath has to be maintained then necessary precautions are a must. Right now there is no need for medicines. Only modified lifestyle and exercise are needed. Thanks.

what are Reasons of diabetes?

MD
General Physician,
what are Reasons of diabetes?
Here are some key points about diabetes. Reason of diabetes in simple layman terms describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Diabetes is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels. In 2013 it was estimated that over 382 million people throughout the world had diabetes (williams textbook of endocrinology). Type 1 diabetes - the body does not produce insulin. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1. Type 2 diabetes - the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function. Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type. Gestational diabetes - this type affects females during pregnancy. The most common diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, intense thirst and hunger, weight gain, unusual weight loss, fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, male sexual dysfunction, numbness and tingling in hands and feet. If you have type 1 and follow a healthy eating plan, do adequate exercise, and take insulin, you can lead a normal life. Type 2 patients need to eat healthily, be physically active, and test their blood glucose. They may also need to take oral medication, and/or insulin to control blood glucose levels. As the risk of cardiovascular disease is much higher for a diabetic, it is crucial that blood pressure and cholesterol levels are monitored regularly. As smoking might have a serious effect on cardiovascular health, diabetics should stop smoking. Hypoglycemia - low blood glucose - can have a bad effect on the patient. Hyperglycemia - when blood glucose is too high - can also have a bad effect on the patient.

Foods that can keep your Uric Acid levels at Normal.


High uric acid levels in the blood stream can lead to a common form of arthritis called gout. To prevent gout, it is essential to maintain good eating habits and have proper medication. To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines. Digestion of purine leads to the formation of uric acid. If uric acid is not eliminated normally which is seen in gout sufferers, it can build up in the blood stream leading to joint inflammation and pain.

Water   Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.

Cherries    Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints. Cherries also neutralise the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid.

Apple    Malic acid in apple neutralises uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal.

Lime    The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily.

French bean Juice    Another effective home remedy for gout is french beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid.

Celery seed    This is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results.

Berries    Berries especially strawberries, and blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties so include them in your diet.

Apple Cider Vinegar   Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid.

Pinto Beans    A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

Hello lybrate-user, first line of treatment for diabetes is to avoid sugar, sweets, white rice, potato, sweet fruits and avoid sedentary lifestyle. At least 40mints of walk or 30mints exercise is must. If her diabetes is still more after avoiding sweet and doing exercise then she should consult a diabetologist.

Few details are required to give correct advise, like weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity every day and the dosage of medications taken. Ppg 0.2 needs to be taken with each meal with first bite. As regards the food on tour one can stick to dal roti, salads, curd and a little rice (if needed). Breakfast could be upama, 2 idlis, 1 -2 plain dosas with nil oil, and half apple or 1 orange etc. Dinner should be similar to lunch. Avoid sweets, pastries, deep fried foods, drink dilute butter milk. A glass of skimmed milk can be had at bed time.

I am a diabetic since 18 years aged 57 years. At present I am taking metride 2mg (glimpride 2mg metformin 500mg) before breakfast, Janumet before lunch (sitagliptin 50mg metformin 500mg) and metride 1mg ((glimpride 1mg metformin 500mg) before dinner. My question is whether same salt of other reputed manufacturer can be substituted with above medicines, because some times cost is about half of the medicine, If no, what can be the possible impact of changing the medicines without doctors advice.

Yes, you can change the medicines with suitable substitutes if the cost difference is huge. But, simply put the cost is often decided by various factors including quality. After all you cannot compare a sony tv and micromax tv both same size but cost is half. The bottom line is, that you sugars should be in target. Just taking medicines for the sake of taking some treatment won't help you to prevent the complications of diabetes, a dreaded disease. So, try them out for a month or two, if the results are same, continue it, if not, then please get back to the original drugs.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user with diabetes you are not supposed to take direct sugar or sweets as that will cause almost immediate increase in blood glucose level. All the food stuffs that we consume like whole grain /pulses products rice, roti, chapati, roti, potato, sweet potato and many other cereals, everything is converted to glucose only as complex starch present in all of these. But sugar taken directly gets converted to glucose almost immediately, hence to be avoided. You probably need to work on reducing the weight if your bmi is more than 24 and controlled balanced diet with some physical activity of your choice at least for 50 mnts daily and proper sleep of 7-8 hrs and make yourself stressfree to manage sugar level.

My brother's wife is cancer cured - left breast, more than 8 years. She is healthy now, working as well. I would like to know whether her daughter, 26, is taking medication for thyroid, may have this disease on hereditary basis, in future.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
See, to ascertain whether it was genetically related she has to check her BRCA genes, usually BRCA 1and 2both are checked and if positive then chances of inherited breast cancers are high. Anyhow, it may be slightly psychologically troublesome as not all cases will develop cancer and there may be other risk factors aswell. She should still go for regular breast self examination on monthly basis, five days after periods are over and can go for mammography after may be 10years as she is only 26.
