Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem.

Lybrate-user, to suggest any treatment first you should inform follwing thing: curren fasting and pp levels, hba1c%, dietary habits and extent of daily exercise being done and present treatment with dosage. Based on those details I can give suggestions. It is better if you come in a private conversation. For ideal sugar control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned the actual test results, as that would have given a clear idea. On treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, for being free from all symptoms. Further, it is better ifyou get a blood glucose test done. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus, is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus over weight, inactivity and junk foods. This disease can only be controlled by taking regular medicine as prescribed by the doctor, plus dietary control and regular exercise for about an hour, so that normal weight is maintained. As regards the drug mentioned, is an ayurvedic (herbal) combination. Supposed to be helping in controlling diabetes. If you want you may take it. But do not stop your current treatment, otherwise blood sugar control will become haywire. I do not recommend it as a primary treatment of diabetes. World over there is no treatment that can cure diabetes. Thanks for the question.

take tab. combiflaim sos for pain. continue medicines for thyroid. High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?

How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?
Dear lybrate-uservery good question. You See uric acid is a by product or breaking doennof certain molecules in the body. Especially it is acomponent of break down of cells. Normally our body is a perfect machine which is efficiently able to throw out this uric acid. Uric acid can increase if there is excessive intake of products that produce it like alcohol, spinach, red meat etc. Or if the enzymes that are used to process it are deficient. Or if the kidneys are not working, as uric acid is excreted through kidneys. Acute hyperuricemia can cause severe pain and swelling in a single joint. Most commonly it affects the great toe. Avoiding alcohol, red meat; drinking plenty of water are some of the ways to avoid it. Regards.

I have erection dysfunction. I am diabetic but always in control. Sugar level always under 95.
Mr. lybrate-user, long standing diabetes mellitus even when under good control does damage small blood vessels, due to which many complications result, erectile dysfunction is being one of those. If there is uncontrolled diabetes then it can lead to ED much earlier. Ideally blood glucose should be FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8, to say diabetes is is in very good control. To treat ED one can use PDE-V inhibitors as a temporary relief. These drugs help erection. Thanks.
