Uric acid is a chemical created when the body breaks down substances called purines. Purines are found in some foods and drinks. These include liver, anchovies, mackerel, dried beans and peas, and beer. Most uric acid dissolves in blood and travels to the kidneys. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. To help reduce the amount of uric acid in your system, regularly taking 500 milligrams of vitamin c will decrease your uric acid levels in a month or two. Avoid cakes, pastries, cookies and other sugary delights which are rich in saturated fats and trans fats. Homeopathic medicine vary from patient to patients conditions so for this we need detail history.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Sugar or jaggery both are not to be used by a person with diabetes. But if one has no diabetes then there is no problem in eating either of these substances. Agar aap ko diabetes nahi hai, to kuch bhi dikkat nahi hai. Thanks.

Hi, I am a 27 year old woman. I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking regular medications for it. I am not married yet, and due to family issues I would not be marrying before two years. Which means I would be around 29 when I get married. I am not interested in having kids for at least 2 years post marriage, so by the time I want one I would turn 31. Everybody keeps telling me that if you are hypothyroid you will have a hell lot of complication if you conceive after 30. I do not want to have kids just because of society's pressure. I want kids when I am mentally prepared to take care of them. Hence please let me know is it really going to be risky for me to have kids after 30, will it lead to any complication?

those peoples are suffering by thyroid...mainly female....there may be problems for conceive. so they should be take continue medicines for thyroid...when thyroid level and other hormones are normal any female can conceive. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are talking about two totally different conditions. I will give details about one of them diabetes mellitus. This is a disorder occurring due to either deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. In t1 there absolutely no insulin secretion. Diabetes has to be treated by appropriate oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin injections. At times both may be required for better control. Along with this strict diet control and regular exercise for more than 1 hour is also important.

Increase sugar levels in the blood causes decrease metabolism of the cells of the tissues leading to the damage.

One month back my father having chest pain and fever. Blood samples analysed and Echo carried out. In that heavy pericardial effusion seen. For next 3 days water evacuated from chest and around 1000 ml water evacuate. Its sample analysed and ADA 63 reported in forms of tuberculosis and no malignant cells seen. CT scan also carried out. And tuberculosis treatment started. In start, His blood sugar increased to 450 and now its normal to 150-200. At present he is taking R Cinex and Benadon tablets. I want to know if this treatment is OK or should I walk to other doctors. I can share all reports if you need. Is there any chances of any other disease apart from tuberculosis. At present his right hand paining very much and its almost one month but he is still feeling weak.

Thanks for the question in our country tuberculosis is a common cause for pericardial effusion. As per the reports that you have provided your father's pericardiocentesis was done and fluid analysis was suggestive of tuberculosis (with high ada). The treatment he has been put on is fine. Presently, he is on rcinex and benadon, hence I presume that his initial intensive phase of anti-tubercular drugs is over. The management duration is usually 6-9 months in respondent cases. You can get a check xray chest done to note for the current status. I would advise you to continue with your present doctor since the treatment provided is as per guidelines of management. Regards.

Hi The best test to take away your confusion is HbA1C test which is your previous 3 months average blood sugar. More than 6.5 is diabetes, if it's less than 6.5 but more than 5.7 it's pre diabetes. Less than 5.7, is normal.
