I am 40 years old male and have back pain and neck pain, uric acid increases when I eat like chicken, paneer etc what should I do, I am suffering last 3 years.

Being 40 your backache and neckache may need not to be due to your high uric acid only. That may be because of other reasons too. Treat your hyper uric acid level by an ortho. Doc's and a dietician's advice. Meanwhile, sleep on a hard bed with thin mattress, use commode, local heat with a pain gel after fomentation, pain killers for 5 days and rest for 3-5 days if your problem is bothering your routine life.

Sir, my post prandial sugar level is high (200 approx) even after intake of medicine. please advise whether to increase the doses.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, You have not mentioned which drug/s you are taking and what is the current dosage. Hence, difficult to advise. If blood glucose is marginally high, then one can bring it down to desired level by 1) increased exercise or 2) reduced food intake. There is no need to always increase the dose. Looking at your weight and height, BMI is 26.49 kgs/M2, which is showing over weight. So reduction weight itself will bring down the blood glucose. Thanks.

Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Dibrugarh
Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive.

While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions.

Infertility Symptoms in Women

In women, changes in the menstrual cycle and ovulation may be a symptom of a disease related to infertility. Symptoms include:

  • Abnormal periods. Bleeding is heavier or lighter than usual.
  • Irregular periods. The number of days in between each period varies each month.
  • No periods. You have never had a period, or periods suddenly stop.
  • Painful periods. Back pain, pelvic pain, and cramping may happen.

Treatment: Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, intrauterine insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. Male patients can go through a treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal and art or assistive reproductive technology.

If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like in vitro fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Musli powder extra is a pill or powder, if taken is it disastrous in terms of side effect, will it not affect my fertility as I am planning for pregnancy of my wife soon n suffering from erectile dysfunction, please suggest.

MD Gynaecology, MBBS

Musli is a propreitary ayurvedic preparation supposedly treating erectile dysfuntion. Being an allopathic doctor, my knowledge of ayurveda is limited, but one thing is certain that if the product is purely herbal without high heavy metal content, there would not be any side effects.

I am having frequent weight gains due to hypothyroidism? What should be diet for hypothyroidism.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
If hypothyroidism is in control, weight gain can be controlled. When treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l, then all symptoms can be controlled. There is no special diet. Few substances like soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee should be avoided. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Consume whole grain products, use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid using maida and high fat milk products. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour is necessary to control weight.

I am 58 years old, male with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At present I am put on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. Of late, I am thinking of replacing Amisulpride with Paliperidone 3 mg OD (Of course, only after the consent of my Psychiatrist, with whom I have an appointment next week). In the mean time, I want to know, how safe it is and will it react with Sizopin? Please confirm.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication. As such paliperidone has no serious side effects but can cause stiffness of muscles and shaking in some pts.

For cervical spondylitis you need good physiotherapy. If your hba1c /average blood sugar is less than 7 than it can b said that your diabetes is controlled, otherwise from your multiple symptoms//diseases it is less likely, for numbness can b long term complication of diabetes./for which you need. Tab nervup pg 1 daily at night. For long period.
