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.

These are normal reports. Nothing to be done. Hypoglycemia can occur due to binge drinking or taking hypoglycemic medicines by mistake. If it occurs frequently then it has to be investigated.

It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose levels of 160 mg & 250 mg mean there is uncontrolled diabetes. What is the HbA1c%? Long standing diabetes invariably causes erectile dysfunction, even when there excellent control. You have uncontrolled diabetes plus grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.14 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). Both these are contributary to the present situation. Strict blood glucose control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, is essential. Plus reduction of weight as close as possible to normal (69 kgs). Is to be achieved. Thanks.

thyroid gland is present in every one of us. So every body is thyroid positive. Unless you clarify that term of yours it is difficult to answer. By chance if you are meaning that you have hypothyroidism (tsh levels high) then treatment is with thyroxine tablets and that is for life time.

In hypothyroidism hair fall is a common occurrence. It is usually the last symptom to be corrected after hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units, then it is considered as good control. So please check tsh levels and see that those are brought to the expected value. Gout and palpitations are unconnected to hypothyroidism.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Mr. V N lybrate-user, Long standing diabetes does affect peripheral nerves leading to neuropathy and pain. Primary need is to have a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg /100 ml & HbA1c% <7. If this is achieved there can be a faster improvement in the condition. Plus if pain is more, one may have to use certain drugs to control it along with strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if tsh value is 10.4 milli units / ml then treatment with thyroxine has to be initiated immediately, to control hypothyroidism symptoms. Dose will depend on patients weight and tsh levels. Plus she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Plus exercise daily for more than 1 hour, to avoid weight gain.

You are having stage 2 chronic kidney disease, in your case, probably due to age only. Follow up on the creatinine levels. Meanwhile, get a urine routine examination and ultrasound abdomen and consult a physician or a nephrologist.
