Is rice the cause for diabetes? Anyone please tell me can I take rice daily?
Thanks.
White rice being a high glycemic index food increases blood sugar rapidly, may create problem maintaining normal blood sugar. Not recommended for diabetic person ideally. Try eating food with low glycemic index below 50-60, small n frequent meals. U can search in net for low gi index food.

Sir. Last month my uric acid level was 7.2. Then I repeated it after a week then 6.4 Creatinine 0.8 Urea 24. SGOT 32 SGPT 31. Sugar Fasting 100 OGTT 2 hours after taking 75 g glucose. 116 Then I didn't have a control on taking protein rich foods. Anyhow today I just checked the uric acid from a local lab after taking lunch and the result shows uric acid as 11. No physical issues on my body .no pain and all. Daily plays badminton for 45 minutes. Is this normal?

You have not given blood sugar fasting or post lunch test, with out which we will not be able to tell you regarding the your diabetic status. Your treating doctor might have seen it and has suggested you have sugar, so you have to believe him, otherwise with the reports you have given we can not conclusively say that you do not have sugar.

Tsh is 26 against a max. 0f 5. Esr 15 against max. Of 7. These tests were done when complained of ibs. I am taking medicines for thyroid. For ibs what should be done?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
you can take medicines for thyroid..tab. thyronorm 150 mcg before meal.and for ibs you cut out such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits.Fiber supplements. Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel), with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement. If fiber doesn't help symptoms, your doctor may prescribe an osmotic laxative such as milk of magnesia or polyethylene glycol.

Diet supplements in Hypothyroidism

Your thyroid needs iodine to work well, get enough from iodized table salt, fish, shrimp, and seaweeds. Thyroid needs magnesium also - spinach, lettuce, and other leafy greens are great sources of magnesium. Also cashews, almonds, and pumpkin seeds are another excellent source of magnesium.

High triglycerides and 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.

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.

It takes around 6 to 8 weeks to reflect change in value of TSH. You can repeat test after 2 months of starting treatment. I think its already more than 2 months so you can go for test now.
