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.

My mother (58+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroidism (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis (stage-2) of knee joints. Since past couple of months, she faced the problem of seeing every distant object in black color as well as in blurry image. Recently she visited an eye doctor, who suggested this is because of the eye gel getting dried up. She had cataract also, but that's mostly at initial phase. 1) What could have caused this eye gel to be dried ? Is it something serious & related to other medical problems ? 2) They have prescribed 2 eye drops - Aqualube & Nepaflam daily 3-4 times for 3-months. Is it safe to to use Nepaflam for such a long period ?

Dryness is caused by hypothyroidism itself. There is a change in composition of mucous that is secreted by special glands in the conjunctiva tissue of the eye. She has to use lubricating eye drops on a daily basis at a frequency that depends upon the ambient temperature, humidity and wind factor. Generally speaking use drops for comfort and repeat when discomfort starts. Lubricating drops are safe and preservative free formulations are also available. Nepaflam has to be stopped after 3 weeks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat milk products, highly processed foods. Avoid mango, banana, grapes and chikkoo. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti. (no maida). Refrain from from alcohol and smoking. Diet should provide exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes : 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (MADHUMEHA) is.Mainly kapha dosha disease. Poorly managed diabetes can lead to a host of long-term complications like :- Heart attacks, Strokes, Blindness, Nerve damage, Amputation of Limb.

I am diabetic for the past 18+ years. What is the fasting sugar level allowed for me?

MBBS, MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Hello. Welcome to lybrate. Ideally your fasting blood sugar should be less then 126 mg/dl. The treatment is based on the blood sugar levels, your age, weight and associated complications of diabetes, if any. There are two ways of diabetes management: 1. Life style changes - includes diabetic diet, daily exercise, cholesterol and weight management. 2. Drug therapy - if blood sugars are so high that they can't be well controlled on dietary measures, the medicines are required. Medicines are again decided based on the blood sugar levels you should not play with these drugs as this can be harmful. Get them prescribed by a doctor only. They would start you with an assumed dosage and will modify your medicines based on your blood sugar values. I would advise you to get following investigations done: 1. Hba1c 2. Fasting lipid profile 3. Serum creatinine 4. Urine for micro albumin. 5. Ecg. Based on the reports you would be started on the treatment. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.

Does hyperthyroid effects functioning of brain not able to sleep properly and does omega 3 helps in treating problems related to brain.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
If you take the advise of your doctor and follow health rules then you should not worry about anything. Omega 3 is not for treatment but is an important nutrient just like other important vitamins. All these nutrients help in the proper functioning of the whole body including the brain. You should focus on being healthy, and so follow a healthy lifestyle. Yoga can be very beneficial if you do it consistently. If you need Homeopathic treatment for sleep disturbance then you can contact me (as it is safe and without any side effects ). Homeopathy can also be taken along with the regular medicines.

Lybrate-user during pregnancy the level of sugar normally goes high and that is common feature and it is called as gestational diabetes as it is restricted to pregnancy event and it goes off the moment to finish the pregnancy in your case you already finished this episode, now you are at an average risk of genetic transformation of diabetes as your father had. If you maintain good routine and balance with daily exercise, you will maintain sugar levels well in control. All my best wishes.

I read article about the Red wine today. I would like to know whether Red wine can be drink if a person is diabetic? (Not on insulin). And some doctor suggested my wife not to eat Red/Black grapes as she is suffering from kidney stones also. Please let me know. Thanks

Consuming grapes is not related to formation of kidney stones. Regarding red wine According to the American Diabetes Association, drinking red wine — or any alcoholic beverage — can lower blood sugar for up to 24 hours. Because of this, they recommend checking your blood sugar before you drink, while you drink, and monitoring it for up to 24 hours after drinking. Effects on blood sugar aside, there is some evidence that red wine might provide benefits to people with type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes cases are on the rise. Healthy lifestyle changes can control diabetes. Certain foods that are packed with fiber, omega-3s, calcium and vitamin d can help you. Try these foods to get relief from diabetes.

Top foods to control diabetes

Beans: they contain soluble fiber and lean proteins. Beans help in burning body fat, they lower the cholesterol levels and stabilize blood-sugar levels. Hence go for beans!

Oats: they are high in soluble fiber which slows down the absorption process in the stomach. This will in turn keep the blood-sugar levels in control.

Tuna: an 85 g of tuna contains 1, 300 mg of omega-3s and vitamin d. But tuna has mercury hence limit your intake to 340 gm a week.

Yoghurt: low-fat yoghurt contains high-quality carbohydrates and proteins, both are best to control blood sugar levels. Research shows that 1, 200 mg of calcium and more than 800 iu of vitamin d a day cuts down the risk of diabetes by 33%. If possible opt for greek yoghurt since it contains more proteins than regular non-fat yoghurt.

Dates: dates have a sweet taste and delightful texture, which makes them a great snack. Seven dates contain 4 gm of fiber; hence they are perfect for controlling diabetes.

Spinach: it is low in calories and has low-impact on blood sugar. Hence spinach is great for controlling diabetes.

Wild salmon: it is packed with omega-3s and it contains healthy fats and proteins. Consumption of wild salmon will slow down the absorption of carbohydrates which will in turn control the blood sugar levels.

Egg whites: they are loaded with high-quality proteins and are low in carbohydrates. One large egg white consists of 16 calories and 4 gm of high-quality proteins. Hence they are ideal for controlling blood sugar levels.

Avocados: they are packed with monosaturated fats which are great to control blood sugar levels.

Flaxseeds: they contain omega-3s which lowers the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

If you suffer from diabetes, include the above foods in your diet. You will realise a decrease in the blood sugar levels.

A good way to diffuse general body pains: 1.take a long hot bath in water in which a few cups of Epsom salts have been added. 2.If you suspect your body and pains are due to stress-get plenty of sleep and try to reduce or eliminate the cause of your stress. 3.Meditation, deep breathing and yoga.
