A Thyroid Total test was done on my wife from Dr. Lal Pathlabs and the TSH levels found were 12.97 I had certain doubt on the report. Now we have got the same test done again from Dr. Lal Pathlabs but from a different lab this time. The TSH levels found were 7.31 These tests were done on 6th & 11th Nov. I'm totally confused if the TSH levels can fluctuate to this extent within a week or the reports are manipulated?

Elevated uric acid levels cause gouty arthritis.

How to Lower Uric Acid Levels Naturally?

More and more gout sufferers are moving away from costly drug-based remedies with their nasty side effects, to more natural remedies. Here are 3 simple tips on how to lower uric acid levels in the blood naturally:

(1) Drink between 2 and 3 liters of water everyday. Drink small amounts regularly throughout the day. Water helps the kidneys to process and flush uric acid out of the body.

(2) Consume a baking soda solution to help dissolve uric acid crystals, and, increase uric acid solubility. Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to 8 oz of water. Mix thoroughly, and drink maximum 8 glasses daily. One before bedtime, one when you get up in the morning, and one every 2 to 4 hours between meals. Repeat until the symptoms have gone.

Note: Since baking soda is high in sodium, change to a salt-free diet whilst taking this remedy. And, if you suffer from high blood pressure, although you can take it as long as you monitor your blood pressure closely, it’s better not to use this remedy at all.

(3) Change to a low purine diet. Since uric acid comes from the breakdown of purines, and, purines also exist in our foods, a gout sufferer needs to go onto a diet that is relatively low in purines. This also means avoiding high purine foods completely. The general types of food to avoid are fatty red meats, poultry and some seafood. And, it’s important to avoid alcohol. Beer, in particular, is a trigger for gout. The types of foods that make up a low purine diet are things like; essential fatty acids(e.g. tuna, salmon, etc.), low fat dairy products, complex carbohydrates (e.g. bread, cereal, pasta, rice, vegetables, fruit, etc.), fruits such as cherries, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, etc.

Mr Pritam, At 27 years you have very severe hypertension and it has to be controlled rapidly. The dose of Amlodepine 5 mg, is very low and there may be a need for additional drugs. About fasting blood sugar level of 88 mg, it is absolutely normal. There is no need to worry about that. But you BP needs to be better controlled. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines like to control BP you have to reduce daily salt intake to 2.3 g, avoid smoking and alcohol. Practice yogasanas etc.

Please keep thyroid under control as you are over weight by 10-12 kg please consult your physician and do regular exercises All weight reducing drugs are not good as none has stayed in market for few years due to severe side effects and do not take.

First of all rule out any organic cause. Get checked for thyroid, bp, sugar, lipids and testosterone levels etc. If everything is normal, then go for vascular assessment (penile doppler). If that too is normal, then it is psychogenic and you can consult a psychiatrist. For, more details and explanation. If you want to consult me, ask a private chat/call/video call through lybrate.

Dear patient, most common conditions of sexual activity are pre mature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction & micro penis (small penis). The main symptom of premature ejaculation is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. And erectile dysfunction, or ed, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Microopenis is a condition in which penis is much smaller than the normal length, hence no sexual satisfaction. Common causes include, habits, drug addiction, excess of masturbation, poor nutriiton, stress, anxiety. Most successful treatments for all the above mentioned 3 problems, include both correction of life style & diet, and proper consumption of homeo medicines till completion of course. 9 out of 10 cases now, responds well to morkoprad energy pills therapy [commontly known as mep], which is completely natural and safe. Go for this formula based therapy and revert back with result. For any doubts, feel free to ask regarding treatment criteria. Take care.

Can a diabetic have tea, an article says having tea reduces diabetes and stroke by 37%. Is it true.

Can a diabetic have tea, an article says having tea reduces diabetes and stroke by 37%. Is it true.
Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes can definitely take tea, but without sugar, as sugar adds extra calories. One can take about 2 to 3 cups in a day, but too much is not good as it does stimulate stomach acid secretion. Some reports keep cropping up on tea and coffee about their benefits, harms etc. Best is to ignor them, and just take a moderate quantity per day. Thanks.

I am 45 years female. I am suffering from Thyroid problem, H B down and swelling in whole body.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sushilji, Are on proper treatment for hypothyroidism? What is the dose and recent TSH level? If hypothyroidism is not in control there can be swelling in the body. Low hemoglobin (depending on the level) can be corrected by oral hematinic preparations. If you are on treatment for hypothyroidism then TSH should remain around 3 to 4 milli units. Otherwise symptoms will not go away.
