Hi mr, lybrate-user, its your age to sit back and relax, where does the need to work comes from? if you still want to work sit with a counselor and make alist of skills and attributes you will require for certain kind of jobs. Do job search through online portals if you do not get desired job do not lose patience you may in the mean time take up a temporary job while searching for other. You may need some relationship counseling with regards to your daughter to discuss the matter in detail. Consult with me for same. For diabetes you can try home remedies side by side flax seed, bilbery plant, cinnamon etc.

Your thyroid is not as much bad as your LDL cholesterol value is! Infact TSH of 6.55 means that we need to check your Anti-TPO antibody test as well and only if this test gives us high values then only Thyroid medicines are recommended for you. But most definitely your Lipid values are way of range.

Uric acid is produced by food in the body by non veg, pulses and many vegetables which contain purines. Increase in uric acid is genetic defect in which body is unable excrete uric acid produced. It's decrease is possible with medicene on regular basis or avoiding all food items which is tough to practice. So it is better to take medicene and eat everything.

Please suggest the Best medicine to dissolve excess uric acid in the body.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: anchovies asparagus beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas game meats gravy herring liver mackerel mushrooms sardines scallops sweetbreads. Lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. Consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

By birth uric acid can not be higher than normal. You must get treatment of both high uric acid as well as cholesterol. At the same time you get treatment for liver because liver dysfunction may cause rise of these elements. You also take care of your meal. For cholesterol avoid fry, fatty & fast foods. For uric acid preferably be vegetarian, avoid protein diet also leguminus foods like dal products.

How can we control sugar our self. Regarding sweats and munching items. Pleas advise.
Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

Sonuji, Hypothyroidism is a condition that needs to be treated for life time. So if treatment has been stopped, then restart immediately. Dose of thyroxine has to be based on TSH levels (present) and body weight. Plus follow all instructions regarding the dosage.

Mr. lybrate-user, The particular tablet which is being advertised heavily in TV, is just a combination of some herbal remedies, based on encient ayurvedic texts. There is very little scientific evidence to support. Unless a patient is on modern medicine to treat diabetes or to control blood glucose, there is no way to control it. The medicine mentioned by you can be at best can be taken as a supportive therapy. I have absolutely no belief on the various claims made. Thanks.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

I am diabetic patient, what kind of diet I will take and what kind of exercise I will do for better result.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hi sir, my wife having thyroid problem what medicine she will take to control. Age 30, planing for child. Kindly guide us.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Ghosh, Thanks for the query. If you are planning for a baby and if hypothyroidism is present, then it is absolutely essential that it is completely brought under control by taking adequate dose of levothyroxine. TSH levels should be maintained below 2 mU/L for conception to occur. Plus throughout the 3 trimesters of pregnancy TSH should be maintained around 2 mU/L. This will ensure proper fetal development and growth. Plus she should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits.Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid pastries and other bakery items, plus foods made out of maida. If you have any doubts please do come back. I will be glad to guide. Thanks

Mr Mradul, There is no need for taking B complex tablets regularly for a diabetes patient, unless there is deficiency of vitamins. Plus I am not aware if B complex vitamins are required for development of platelets. Most often our balanced diet gives enough vitamins and minerals. If you still want to take it, you go ahead.
