Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.

Hai, How we know uric acid high? Only the way of checkup or any other symptoms? If any symptoms, please advise. And please notify which is normal level? Thanks.

Dear friend, knowing the uric acid level is done by a simple blood test. However symptoms of increased blood uric acid are pain in the joints, particularly that of foot. Increased level of uric acid are more common in men, that more so in those who consume alcohol in excess and eat red meat regularly. So in case you have foot pain, joint pains, please get your uric acid level checked from a good lab. Usually uric acid below 5 is within acceptable limit.

Invokana is very new drug in india, its safety in clinical studies is good, however, we are yet to use it regularly. It has definite advantages some of the existing treatments. Taking insulin injections is in fact really good for you as it can bring sugar levels rapidly under control.

Madam, with random blood sugar level of 250 mg, your present treatment is definitely not adequate, you need to look at increasing the dosage or adding a newer drug. Plus consider restricted diet and regular exercise. As regards other branches of medical practices for treating a severe diabetes, there is not going to be any benefit. Those drugs can be used only once a good sugar control is achieved, justas additional supportive therapy. In the world today other than oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin there is virtually no treatment available. So please look at these facts. Further choice is yours. With regards.

Hypertension and Diabetes - How They are Related?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Hypertension and Diabetes - How They are Related?

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure can trigger as well as worsen complications related to diabetes. Most people suffering from diabetes tend to develop hypertension later in their lives. Diabetes tends to increase one’s blood pressure, making him/her even more vulnerable to other heart diseases and cardio-vascular disorders. Diabetes often leads to a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries. A combination of diabetes and hypertension drastically increases the risk of suffering from a heart disease. The risks of kidney diseases and retinopathy (damage to the tiny blood vessels present in the retina) also go up, resulting in blindness. With age, chronic hypertension can also result in numerous cognitive disorders such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (degenerative mental disorder).

How to prevent Diabetes and Hypertension?
1. Walking for about 40 minutes each day or engaging in any type of aerobic exercise can better one’s heart health. Chalk out an exercise plan upon consulting the doctor
2. Limit drinking and abstain from smoking
3. Go for regular kidney check-ups
4. Eat food rich in fiber such as vegetables, fruits, breads or whole grain cereals
5. Examine blood pressure as well as blood sugar levels regularly at home
6. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga to cut down on stress level; as stress is one of the major contributors to diabetes and the subsequent hypertension
7. Shed off your extra pounds as blood pressure escalates with weight

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.

Gastric upset (probably hyperacidity or mild gastritis) following earlier treatment, should be settling down in a few days. The unease can be corrected by taking small meals more frequently. Plus avoiding remaining hungry or on empty stomach for long time. Avoiding excess tea or coffee also alcohol and aerated sweetened drinks like colas. Keep away from bakery items and pastries. It is better to exercise daily for over 1 hour, even brisk walk itself is fine, certain yogasanas also help. If symptoms are persistent, then it is better to consult your doctor or come back here. Using PPI to reduce excess acid is beneficial. Thanks.

Whether the above injection will give relief from pain for some time and how long period and side effects for diabetes persons. Whether it is steroid and its cost.

Synvisc is not a steroid. It's natural sugar for lubrication. Also sometimes other steroidal injections are given. Best is knee replacement. But the hba1c is on the higher side, please keep her sugar in control. Also send me other reports in private chat and I will send a prescription of excellent medicines that will help her immediately. Steroids can't be given in your wife's case because they will increase the sugar levels. So medicine has to be given very carefully. Please consult me for further treatment.

I am 58 years old and diabetic. Can I take lemon with warm water. I am already thin and dont want to reduce weight. Please suggest immediately.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You can take lemon water without sugar. 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. If you keep in touch. Www. Lybrate.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you are talking about psoriasis, then please understand this condition shows remissions and does reappear. It will not go away. Treatment has to go on. Same is the case with hypothyroidism, it is also to be treated for lifetime. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. So please look at the TSH levels. Thanks.

I would rather change his medications to a long acting gliclazide metformin combating together with a Dpp4 inhibitor also. The reason is a poor HBAIC of 7.5 with the present drug .diet and regular excercise goes without saying in all diabetics and a dietician advise is recommmended.

Hello, if weight gain is occurring due to hypothyroidism, then controlling that condition is very important, because if hypothyroidism is not in check, efforts reduce weight will not succeed. So it is essential to bring tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units/l, then only efforts to reduce weight will show result. Once tsh level is low enough and you are on a balanced restricted diet and regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, then weight reduction is possible.
