I am male 30 years old
My uric acid in blood after test is 2.73
The normal range is 3.4 to 6.8
Pls advise.
Do not worry. That value is also normal. If you have any specific problems like joint pains then can repeat the test. Or else values <6.8 are not a problem.

Dear lybrate-user, the provided information about your liver function test is indeed a bit abnormal. However, you should not worry. Take homoeopathic liv-t liver tonic (sbl company). Take 20 ml of the aforesaid liver tonic for thrice daily, after meals. Continue the medication for one month. Check your blood for liver function test after one month of medication. If your liver function test report shows any abnormality even after one month of medication then you should inform me

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. Medicine will depend upon your blood sugar report. Your fasting blood report is normal but your post meal sugar is high. You will require change in medication to control your diabetes. Once your diabetes is brought under control than your erection and ejaculation will improve.

Hi Since you are on treatment with thyroxine 125 mcg tablets, there is no need to do any separate testing. Just take iodinated salt. Since you already have hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland is not functioning optimally. So it hardly matters. All the needs of thyroxine are being met by supplement. You should ensure that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If that is not the case then dosage of thyroxine may have to be increased. Thanks.

My tsh is showing 28, high level of tsh, please let me know it's complications and remedy.?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
take tab. thyroxin 150 mcg bbf. , cap. pantop dsr bbf. Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to a number of health problems: Goiter. Constant stimulation of your thyroid to release more hormones may cause the gland to become larger — a condition known as a goiter. Hashimoto thyroiditis is one of the most common causes of a goiter. Although generally not uncomfortable, a large goiter can affect your appearance and may interfere with swallowing or breathing. Heart problems. Hypothyroidism may also be associated with an increased risk of heart disease, primarily because high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol — the "bad" cholesterol — can occur in people with an underactive thyroid. Even subclinical hypothyroidism, a more benign condition than true hypothyroidism, can cause an increase in total cholesterol levels and impair the pumping ability of your heart. Hypothyroidism can also lead to an enlarged heart and heart failure. Mental health issues. Depression may occur early in hypothyroidism and may become more severe over time. Hypothyroidism can also cause slowed mental functioning. Peripheral neuropathy. Long-term uncontrolled hypothyroidism can cause damage to your peripheral nerves — the nerves that carry information from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body, for example your arms and legs. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy may include pain, numbness and tingling in the area affected by the nerve damage. It may also cause muscle weakness or loss of muscle control. Myxedema. This rare, life-threatening condition is the result of long-term, undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Its signs and symptoms include intense cold intolerance and drowsiness followed by profound lethargy and unconsciousness. A myxedema coma may be triggered by sedatives, infection or other stress on your body. If you have signs or symptoms of myxedema, you need immediate emergency medical treatment. Infertility. Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the causes of hypothyroidism — such as autoimmune disorder — also impair fertility. Treating hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement therapy may not fully restore fertility. Other interventions may be needed, as well. Birth defects. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disease may have a higher risk of birth defects than may babies born to healthy mothers. These children are also more prone to serious intellectual and developmental problems. Infants with untreated hypothyroidism present at birth are at risk of serious problems with both physical and mental development. But if this condition is diagnosed within the first few months of life, the chances of normal development are excellent.

Of adults with diabetes, only 14% use insulin, 13% use insulin and oral medication, 57% take oral medication only, and 16% control blood sugar with diet and exercise alone.

Diabetes is known to cause total and irreparable blindness if not attended in time. It is important that every deiabetic patient if fully examined by an expert ophthalmologist. There are certain drugs which can prevent damage to retina. Once the retina is involved, we cal it diabetic retinopathy which if not attended can lead to vitreous haemorrhage and retinal detachment which finally may lead to total and irreparable blindness. Timely intervention in cases of diabetic retinopathy by oct examination may reveal changes which can be reversed by photocoagulation and more effectively by intravitreal injections of lucentis or avastin.

Dear . You do have diabetes and since you have not mentioned your age I presume it to be type 2 diabetes. Besides following a diabetic diet you should do 45 min of brisk walking and you need to start on medications.
