I have a problem of uric acid from several years. Can I got a permanent solution of this.

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. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

I am a 46 year old male and my height is 5'9" and weight is 84 kg. Whenever I want to exercise, I have a feeling that crystals are stored in my joints and they give pain. I had two bad experiences of Kidney stones, which I got away with by drinking onion soup. Most of the time my Uric acid levels are high, about 7.5 which is alarming. Please suggest how the crystals in the joints get dissolved, so that I can play some sports which I am very much interested in.

uric acid is heterocyclic compounds of carbon , nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen. which cause gout. In high uric acid avoid few diets i.e. high purine-rich foods, milk products, protein foods, meat, dried beans, dried peas, mushrooms, whey proteins which are used in zym, alcohol, diuretic medicines. Eat balanced diet , eat banana, take amino acid rich diets, L- glutamine like supplements, whole grain, oats, green veg., low cholesterol foods, plenty of water in day time, Do test Kidney Function Test every 6 months to monitor levels of uric acid. Consult doctor always for medicines. Do not take medicines by self. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain .

Hi, I would advise you to take your grandpa to a dermatologist. It is difficult to advise you online as the doctor should see skin problems first before diagnosing. The crack in your grandpa's foot can be anything - from a simple rash/abrasion to more deeper infection. As he is also a diabetic patient, I do not want that wound/rash to worsen, so please see a good dermatologist/skin specialist. In diabetes patients, simple wounds can turn nasty soon, and also healing of wounds is delayed especially if diabetes is not under control.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Fasting blood glucose has to be taken after a gap of 10 to 12 hours after food. This is usually possible following dinner at night. That is the reason, it is done in the morning. If one does remain without food following a breakfast or lunch, then that too can be cosidered in the same manner. But usually such a long gap is not there during the day. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Taking thyroxine tablets in specific dose as prescribed is the only treatment for hypothyroidism. This is a hormone deficiency condition, hence, treatment is lifelong. There is no other option. Thanks.

Diabetes is a disease which remains for life time. There is no cure, only control is possible by taking regualr treatment either with oral anti diabetic drugs or with insulin injections. Apart from taking drugs one has to exercise for at least 1 h a day and eat restricted diet avoiding sweets and deep fried foods. Plus consume good amount of green salads.

Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male) Some diets that are rich in purine end up causing an increased production of uric acid. In other cases, it may be due to a completely sedentary lifestyle. Less intake of water also may be to blame in some cases as water plays an important role in washing out the excess of the uric acid. Regular usage of some medicines also cause the uric acid levels to rise. Another important factor is being overweight as obese people are much more likely to get gout as compared to those who have normal weight. It is a tragedy of the modern world that the superior advertising and marketing power of the allopathic system of medicine has eclipsed the good and genuine work of Homeopathy. This is largely because Homeopathic system of medicine cannot compete with the money power of Allopathy. Just because allopathy does not have any cure for gout, patients tend to think that there is no cure for gout at all. People are not aware of the great work that Homeopathy can do in the cure of gout. I cannot stress enough here that homeopathic medicines are pretty effective at curing the acute as well as the chronic gout A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you a permanent cure naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise.

HbA1c is a blood test which gives an idea of blood sugar levels in the patient during last 2-3 months. It is helpful in diagnosing diabetes mellitus and also in planning as well as monitoring the response to the treatment. Other benefit is that it doesn't require fasting. Target of HbA1c is 7 for diabetics.

Please get an Echo, hemoglobin, TSH levels and Chest x-ray AP view if not done or your MIL. Echo will tell us the condition of her heart and about any valve leakage, hemoglobin to rule out anaemia which can be a cause of this breathlessness and chest x-ray to rule out any lung issues. If these tests are normal then we will have rules out major causes leading to this problem. The anti-anxiety medicine could be a cause of her drowsiness, weakness etc so please stop it unless she has some underlying psychiatric condition for which she is receiving this treatment. A mild anti-anxiety can be given to her to control her anxiety. Also you can talk to her treating cardiologist to do a check angio once just to re-assure her that there is no problem in her stents.

Your weight for the height is high, you should focus on reducing your weight. Start with walking and exercising, that will help increase the hdl which is the good cholesterol, and it will also help reduce ldl which is bad cholesterol that results into blockage of arteries. Get your blood pressure and sugar checked regularly. You might need some medicines in order to keep the sugar and bp in check.

Abnormally high levels of homocysteine in the serum, above 15 ?mol/l, are a medical condition called hyperhomocysteinemia. This has been claimed to be a significant risk factor for the development of a wide range of diseases, including thrombosis, neuropsychiatric illness, and fractures. It is also found to be associated with microalbuminuria which is a strong indicator of the risk of future cardiovascular disease and renal dysfunction.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure. Treatment has to continue for life time. Depending on type of diabetes, either oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections are given. In addition there has to be strict dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight and improve internal insulin action. Thanks.

Your fasting glucose is too high. Shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. Ideally when on treatment Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. So please see that a better blood glucose control is achieved. Diet plan has to be very specific so I need to know present dietary habit, extent of daily exercise and current treatment to give any opinion. Thanks.

My latest blood sugar checked today at home is 114 mg/dl ( by One Touch Glucometer of Johnson & Johnson) and latest TSH level is 1.6 mIU/ml, T3 is 1.2 ng/ml and T4 is 10.0 mcg/dl. Is the blood sugar checked at home with this glucometer are as accurate as lab results? My latest Hb1Ac is 6.1. I got diabetes only a year back and this was not the case in the beginning. I do feel nausea in the morning even if I eat less, don't eat or eat full in the breakfast. I do feel full by just eating quite lesser amount of food than I used to eat before. So, what is the solution of my weariness everyday? Is it food or medicine? I have to take Metformin since it controls my blood sugar very effectively and it is safer drug than other drugs. I am basically Pharmacist and can understand that organs lose it's efficiency day by day in diabetes if not controlled within limits. But as I check my blood sugar every week or two at home, it generally comes within limit of 110 mg/dl with sometimes going out of limit once in a while by 10-20 points if I have eaten some sweets or eaten more carbs or eaten in more quantity. What habits I should follow in order to control blood sugar along with feeling energetic everyday?
