Hello, looking at your height and weight your bmi is 27.03 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kgs/m2), which means you are over weight. Your ideal body weight. To get bmi 23 kgs, weight should be down to 71 kgs. This will help in becoming more healthy as well as in controlling all the lipids. Uric acid 8.2 mg is high, that could be the reason for joint pain. To reduce uric acid you will have avoid red meat, organ meat, certain fishes like herring, sardines, salmon, haddock, scallops and mushrooms, mussels. Also avoid alcohol and sweetened aerated drinks. Overall caloric intake also should be matching the ideal body weight (71 x 25 cals = 1775 cals. Plus a daily exercise of over 1 hour is a must. Thanks.

The higher tsh level means treatment for hypothyroidism has to be taken for life time. Other precautions include avoiding vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and any food item containing soya products. Also avoid mustard and coffee. One can use whole grain flour made breads, green salads and fruits, onion, garlic etc. If care is not taken and treatment is stopped then cosequences can be severe. Thyroxine is needed for all the metabolic functions of the body. If deficiency occurs can lead to swelling of feet and legs and face, slow heart rate, slurred speech, difficulty to concentrate, general weakness, lethargy, intolerance to cold temperature and hair loss.

lybrate-user, Some times in a normal person after food glucose level may be lower. This happens because there is adequate insulin. But if repeated episodes of hypoglycemia are occurring, then you may have to get an Insulin assay done to see if there is excess insulin secretion. If there is no symptom then one need not worry. Thanks.

High uric acid level can be caused when human body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys do not eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout. 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. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications , Drinking too much alcohol, Genetics disorder , hypothyroidism , Immune-suppressing drugs, Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity, psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods.

These are the clear symptoms of diabetes side effects that you are suffering from I would suggest if you want to cure your penis problem and you have to protect yourself from any other disease then you have to cure your diabetes first. Your age is very young and at this age having diabetes is not a good sign so I am giving you some natural remedies you have to follow it regularly. You have to take 10 grams fenugreek seeds and soak in 70 ml water at night then in morning after being fresh drink the water and chew the fenugreek seeds after chewing fenugreek seeds do surya namaskar and then go for 60 minutes walk regularly without fail you have to do these 3 things regularly without fail without keeping any day if you skip any day your improvement will be very slow so from tomorrow you have to take fenugreek seeds then you have to do surya namaskar and then you have to go for 60 minutes walk. Avoid sugar. For quick recovery I suggest you that you should follow a diabetes diet which will cure your diabetes quickly and permanently feel free to consult me.

These reports are normal. Only fasting is little bit high. If you want to confirm, there is 1 more test i. E hba1c which will confirm you that you are diabetic or not or even if you are pre-diabetic. The symptoms of diabetes are:- 1. Increased thirst and hunger 2. Frequent urination 3. Weight loss or gain that has no obvious cause 4. Fatigue 5. Blurred vision 6. Wounds that heal slowly 7. Nausea 8. Skin infections 9. Patches of darker skin in areas of the body that have creases 10. Irritability 11. Breath that has a sweet, fruity, or acetone odor 12. Reduced feeling in your hands or feet.

I have an type 2 diabetes with the value of 445. How can I get the control of that. Rapid weight loss is my main issue.
Mr. lybrate-user, I have gone through your query, and understand your concern. If diabetes is uncontrolled, then there is considerable loss of glucose through urine, due to which you feel exhausted and also loose weight. Blood glucose 445 mg is too high. It needs to be controlled rapidly. Ideally blood glucose should be Fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, then only one is able to prevent or postpone all the long term complications of diabetes. Otherwise there can be very severe consequences. You have not mentioned whether there is any treatment going on currently, if yes give details. If not then it has to be initiated forthwith. For which you will have to come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary patter, extent of daily exercise. Based on those I will be able to guide and get your diabetes under control. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user. Your tsh levels are raised, that means you have hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include lethargy, weight gain, feeling cold, difficulty in concentration, etc. You may also have low mood or depression like symptoms. So both are connected to some extent. Kindly see a physician and a psychiatrist who will give you required treatment.

Yes, this is normal in diabetic patient because this is cause by no up take of glucose by tissues so to have 1/2 teaspoon methi dana seed powder empty stomach daily it will increase your glucose into body tissue and than your body uptake glucose and utilize in proper way.
