I am 37 years male. I am suffering from uric acid problem and high BO. How can I reduce it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, high uric acid in the blood may be present in many persons, but it may not cause any difficulty. But in some it leads to joint pains and gouty arthritis. In such situations it is necessary to reduce the uric acid. It is better to reduce overall fat intake as fat reduces uric acid excretion. Liberal intake of water helps excretion of uric acid. Restrict or preferably eliminate alcohol intake. Avoid certain sea foods - sardines, shell fish, scallops, herring, trout, haddock, tuna, anchovies, salmon, mussels, mushrooms makeral. Whole pulses like rajmah, chana, chole and masur. Others are good. Avoid red meat, organ and glandular meat, avoid excess salt intake, avoid highly processed foods, salted nuts, papad and pickels. Avoid bakery products. Sweetened drinks. Eat fresh vegetables, berries, orange, cabbage, bananas, tomatoes, potato and other vitamin c containing foods. Low fat milk products are good and complex carbohydrates (whole grain flour). For controlling bp also restrict salt intake. If reading is high start on antihypertensive drug.

Diabetes is not controlled > the aim should be bring hba1c to,< 7. Check your recent fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c and sinorm me / you take onglyza 5 mg at noon or in the morning and take glyciphage 1 gm at night and inform. Best control can be got by starting insulin.

Hi Your RBS value is diabetic value. However with one value we cannot decide if you are a Diabetic. Get your 3 month average blood sugar test, HbA1C. This will confirm if your a diabetic or pre diabetic.

Hello a healthy lifestyle can delay and even prevent diabetes, even if it is your family and you have inherited the'diabetic' genes. Regular exercise such as swimming, cycling, or walking helps to delay or prevent diabetes: 30 minutes a day is the recommended minimum, but 90 minutes a day is needed to lose weight. Exercise is proven to prevent diabetes. Gaining weight increases the risk of diabetes 2-3 times at least. A healthy diet helps to delay or prevent diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, If blood glucose levels go hay wire, then repeat infections tend o occur. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to maintain blood glucose levels in good control. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. If the control is not please se that it is regained with appropriate changes in the treatment. Thanks.

My mom has daibetes. She is getting pain from hips till knee not able to stand or seat. Is it because of diabetes or something else ?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Limb pain is a common complaint among diabetics. You may try taking folic acid and methyl cobalamine capsules, eat lots of green vegetables and milk products, exercise daily and keep ypur blood sugar under check. However if you say that there is restricted mobility in the limb, it may also be because of some spinal problem. Maybe some nerve in the lower back is getting compressed. You should visit a spine surgeon nearby for further consultation.

Hi, Diabetes is not a curable disease, it can only be controlled. So, you have to be on these medications for life long. Only the dosage can be adjusted according to the blood sugar values.

How blood sugar can be controlled and when to use insulin?

SLE, FELLOWSHIP IN DIABETOLOGY, DIPLOMA IN PSYCHOLOGY MENTAL HEALTH AND ILLNESS, PLAB (MANCHESTOR, UK), FAGE, MBBS
General Physician,
How blood sugar can be controlled and when to use insulin?
When to take insulin in diabetes from being diagnosed as a new diabetic to many years later after it the question that haunts diabetics is whether I should take insulin now or in the future. If you are a type diabetic (in young people) you start with insulin right away but if you are diagnosed with late onset diabetes (above 35 years- exceptions apply) you delay it for as long as possible. The answer to this is simple. You continue on diet, exercise and tablets as long as you can maintain your sugar levels within normal and when in spite of this your blood sugar levels are uncontrolled (consistently above 200 mg/dl) and you are developing complications such as high blood sugar levels, infections (unresolving) or ketoacidosis etc. Obviously the trouble to take insulin is not more than being confined to an icu bed and hence you will need to start taking insulin once twice or even thrice a day.

Dear lybrate-user, since you have high sugar you should develop strict dietary habits. Restrict your intake of sweet food items like cakes, mithai, chocolates, ice cream. Increase your intake of high fibre foods like fruits (apples, pears, kiwi), veg more of green leafy ones, have daily a cup of beans, a handful of dry fruits as all these contain high fibre & are very beneficial in controlling blood sugar &also bodyweight. Also instead of taking three large meals in a day take five to six small ones like include a snack after every 3 hrs like a fruit or yoghurt. Be particular about the food timing.

I am 43 years old I have severely affected in back pain and joint pain due to uric acid. Kindly give your valuable guidance for control the above.

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.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult give any answer. Because medication is decided on blood glucose levels severity, HbA1c%, patients weight and extent of exercise etc. Unless all the details are made available there is no way I can give any suggestions. About foods one should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Thanks.
