The uric acid of my body is increased. How to reduce it? Will walking help in this case?

MBBS
General Physician,
Drink plenty of water. No need to reduce your diet very much. Take everything in moderate quantity. Uric acid if increased levels are found cause problem when it crystallize in joints. To reduce this chance you need to hydrate yourself. I. E. Drink plenty of water. Take medicine to reduce uric acid only after consulting a physician.

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.

Mr. lybrate-user, Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs when a lady is pregnant and high blood glucose is detected during weeks of pregnancy. This is not seen in males. It is possible you may be having diabetes itself or a prediabetic condition. If blood glucose levels are mentioned then I may be able to say what is the situation. As regards acne, some times that problem does continue for quite some time. Thanks.

Hi, I would not like to counsel you without the reports as I need to understand his case better before I can advise further. But seeing that the creatinine is so high, I feel that he needs to be on dialysis and a transplant will do him a world of good, but it has its own risks and complications.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the treatment has to continue for life time. Diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure. Along with drugs, exercise and diet restriction to control weight is also equally important. Check your hba1c%, it should be maintained around <6.8. Thanks for your question.

yes thyroid medicines is for life time. Go for walk daily . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take 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. 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,

your cousin is having hypothyroidism. Most cases are due to autoimmune disease which means life long treatment has to be taken. But it doesn't cause a problem if she is regularly taking medicine. Instead she should be more worried for type 1 diabetes as you have mentioned in conditions.

Your bp is high, sugar is in normal range and total cholesterol is high but get lipid profile done, get bp monitored and treated accordingly, reduce salt and sugar to bare minimum as fruits and vegetables give us enough of essential salts, minerals and vitamins. No added salt or packed food as salt is a preservative. Avoid excess salt as it leads to water retention and higher bp, but there is no need to take bland salt free diet, some additive to give taste is allowed. Take sendha namak as sodium is less in it compared to table salt.

It appears to me that you have some suppressed anger. If your reports are clear and if you still have chest pain then please understand that your suppressed negative emotions are affecting your body. Please talk to a Counsellor. The Counsellor will help you to understand your hidden negative feelings and will also help you to deal with it. Once you give healthy outlet to your negative feelings you will feel better and will be able to enjoy your life.

Patients can experience symptoms like burning sensation, pin prick sensation, stabbing pain, numbness etc of their hands and feet and if severe may go to the arms and legs too. Management; 1) Good control of blood glucose with proper diet, exercise and diabetic medications.Once the nerves are affected, they may not fully recover, but atleast his condition will not worsen and sometimes his symptoms will improve too. 2) There are medicines which can help with the neuropathy. They can be taken orally or can be use as creams. please check with your doctor. 3) In some patients acupuncture and physiotherapy have also worked. Hope this helps you Thank you
