Sir, My wife's hair loss is observed as she is suffering from thyroid since a month taking thyronorm 100 mg. Is this symptoms normal or any suggestions.

Mr. lybrate-user Akabar, Hair loss is very common in Hypothyroidism and it is usually the last symptom to resolve. On treatment it is essential that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then only all the symptoms are in check. So please see what is the present TSh level. Thanks.

Please take your mother to a Proper Diabetologist or Physician and take Proper Allopathic Medicines. Please don't do all these experiments with other forms of medicines. These days there are lots of different medicines which claim to reduce Diabetes, but there is no scientific evidence to prove thisthis. Also if you want proper advice please mention Fasting - PP Sugar levels and HbA1c test levels when you ask questions. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet. 3. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, biscuits, cakes etc. 5. Eat every two hours small meals/snacks. Take more green vegetables/salads. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc. 7. Take chapatis made of multigrain atta. 8. Drink lot of water. 9. Take these herbs which are known to improve sugar levels - tulsi, cinnamon, karela, flax seeds. 10. Do at least 30 mins of walk everyday.

Please suggest what food to be avoided and what to be taken in case of high uric acid. Pl.specify food.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Fasting sugar of 200 needs imediate medical attention. You need to start on diabetic medication right away. You need to do the following too 1. Cut down carbohydrates from your diet 2.replace rice with either brown rice or rotis 3.exercise everyday for atleast 45 mts 4. Do not eat fruit like mango, grapes, chikoo 5.get your blood test done regularly 6.take your medication regularly 7.get blood test done to look for other conditions Please contact for prescription.

How can I treat uncontrolled diabetes mellitus type 1 preoperatively and also post operatively?

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), Diploma in Diabetes (UK), DFSRH (UK), DRCOG (UK)
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
Hello Sir, You can control your blood glucose levels by following a good healthy diet, avoiding high calorie and high sugar food stuffs, limiting the intake of carbohydrates (rice, roti etc.), increasing the consumption of vegetables and taking adequate amounts of protein - dal, non-veg food etc. Kindly get your fasting and post prandial blood glucose tests regularly. Further get your HbA1C checked every 3 months. Your FPG should be less than 110, PPG should be less than 160 and HbA1C should be less than 6.5 % for good control. Kindly see a good diabetologist who can titrate your insulin doses. If you need any more specific information, please consult me privately through Lybrate. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

I am a patient of diabetes from 1 year I take 2 tablets everyday of glucoryl m1 I have drink alcohol 4 times in a month please give some suggestions for this disease.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Alcohol can cause dehydration and imbalance in sugar levels. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Is drinking alcohol bad for diabetes patients like me ?/my age is 40 years and sugar level is 116-172 borderline diabetes.

PGD Clinical Nutrition & dietetics, Certified Diabetes Educator
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Alcohol is a direct source of increasing blood sugars. That is it easily gets digested and increases the blood sugar levels in the body. Therefore alcohol intake further only worsens the blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It would be better to avoid alcohol intake to help managing sugars and therefore prevent the development of any diabetic complications further.

Hello sir, I am facing in uric acid problem in leg and joint pain. Give me any advise

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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.

Lybrate-user, you need to be cautious with your food habits and physical exertion. Playing football might have resulted in some kind of sprain. I would recommend you to consult a doctor for examination of veins and urinary system. It might be a probablity that dosage of your medicine have to revised or some another medicine needs to be added. Hope you a speedy recovery.

Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.
