Thanks for writing. As per my personal opinion goes many researches are being conducted on this topic. Bcaas (leucine in particular) is known to activate mtor, which in turn, increases insulin (up to 220%). Many doctors does not recommend this drink in diabetes as chronically stimulating the pancreas to release this large amount of insulin can cause insulin resistance. Do contact us in case of futher query.

Please consult an endocrinologist for proper assessment of your other organs like heart, kidneys, lipid levels and have a proper treatment for diabetes, as diabetes is silent killer. It damages many vital organs silently and by the time you experience the symptoms of those organs there will be irreversible changes in that organ. So go to a qualified professional for proper treatment and guidance.

There is no special diet for hypothyroidism, but certain foods should be avoided or taken sparingly. Soya beans and soya containing products are to be avoided along with vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Other vegetables can be taken, plus whole grain flours and breads made out of that are good. Iodinated salt should be used. Since you also have high bp salt intake also should be less. Soya does not cause the condition but it can aggravate it. Plus prescribed medication must be taken without a break.

Am a 75 yrs male and having uric acid problem from middle age. Was on Zyloric 100 medication for nearly 20 yrs and generally the uric acid level remained below 5.5. However my doctor prescribed Ubexa 40 for the last couple of yrs as the level had started to be 6.5. My question is Ubexa 40 preferable to Zyloric 100 in my case? Request advice.

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.

for tooth pain you can take tab. ultracet sos. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland.

Hi though your diabetes report fine, you have to take precaution in sugar intake as it runs in your family. For cholesterol stop fried intake, you can switch over to rice bran or olive oil. Eat more steamed or roasted form of nonveg if you eat non veg. Avoid egg yellow. Have only egg whites walk daily

Dear patient, gluomet gp1 was glimepiride + metformin, your doctor has now dropped metformin from your prescription. This would be either because your sugar level must be on the lower side of the reference range or you must have shown some intolerance to metformin. By the way have your lost some weight lately?

I am a thyroid patient. How to control and reduce fat?
control hypothyroidism I am sure you are thyroxine tablets in a prescribed dosage, as that is the only treatment. Once your thyroxine dosage is stabilised and tsh levels have returned to normal limits, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. As you are aware treatment is for life time. Usually hypothyroidism tends to increase body weight, to reduce weight apart from taking regular treatment you also have to exercise for at least 1 h a day. Also restrict the diet, avoiding enriched fatty foods, deep fried stuffs, junk food and increase intake of green vegetables (except cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Consume good deal of green salads, veges and fruits.

Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. 6.Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken.Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts), and avocados. 7.Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products.

No doubt your dose is very high. Generaly antidiabetic medicines do not affect kidney. Rather control of diabetes protects kidney. You can switch to total insulin treatment and stop majority of the drugs.

What is the mail symptom of thyroid desires. Since I have had thyroid in childhood.
Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned what was the condition that you had as a child. Because thyroid is an endocrine gland present in all of us. It produces hormone thyroxine, which is essential for development and functioning of brain, for a large number of metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of that hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. So it is unclear by saying" I have had thyroid" hypothyroidism causes swelling of face & lower limbs, slow heart rate, tiredness, early fatigue, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, weight gain, in females irregularity of menstrual cycle, excess flow, plus anxiet and depression. If untreated can cause serious consequences. Hyperthyroidism causes loss of weight, increased heart rate, palpitation, protruding eyes, anxiety, agitation, sexual disturbances etc.

it is very bad if no treatment is being taken for diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause serious damage to almost all vital organs and systems in the body. Diabetes can cause retinopathy leading to blindness. It can affect small and big blood vessels affecting kidneys, heart, peripheral blood vessels. In india alone more than 1 lac legs are amputated due to diabetic foot problems. It causes severe neuropathy and loss of sensation in lower limbs. Causes silent heart attacks. I do not understand why treatment was stopped by you. If very competent doctor was treating, then his treatment and instructions should be followed. With the high blood glucose levels mentioned you will have to start on insulin injections or else you are heading for serious problems. Thanks.
