I am a 46 year old male and my height is 5'9" and weight is 84 kg. Whenever I want to exercise, I have a feeling that crystals are stored in my joints and they give pain. I had two bad experiences of Kidney stones, which I got away with by drinking onion soup. Most of the time my Uric acid levels are high, about 7.5 which is alarming. Please suggest how the crystals in the joints get dissolved, so that I can play some sports which I am very much interested in.

In high uric acid avoid few diets i.e. high purine-rich foods, milk products, protein foods, meat, dried beans, dried peas, mushrooms, whey proteins which are used in zym, alcohol, diuretic medicines. Eat balanced diet , eat banana, take amino acid rich diets, L- glutamine like supplements, whole grain, oats, green veg., low cholesterol foods, plenty of water in day time, Do test Kidney Function Test every 6 months to monitor levels of uric acid.

Mr SS Prasad, Tinnitus or ringing sound in ear is a fairly common condition that develops in older aged persons. It occurs because of affection to inner ear (labyrinthitis). Diabetes and high blood pressure do not directly affect it. However, it good to keep both the conditions in proper check. There are variious drugs used to control tinnitus, but it is a tough condition to cure. It is better if you consult a competent ENT surgeon for this.

Please tell me the maximum limit of insulin can be taken as I am taking 27 units at bed time basalog.
There is no" maximum dose" for insulin. In fact, it is one of the very few drugs that does not have a maximum dose. In other words, as long as you don't have hypoglycemia or other complications (eg: severe kidney disease) and your blood sugars are controlled round the clock, insulin is safe at any dose.

Increase her zinc content and iron content of the diet. Non veg are excellent sources of both these nutrients. This will reduce her fatigue

Mr Selvamani, If you have confirmed T2 DM, then there is no way that can be controlled without medicine. In prediabetic condition one can control that without medicine and postpone getting diabetes. But once a person gets it then drug treatment is essential. Plus you have to exercise daily for at least 1 hour and take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, canned fruit juices, ghee, butter and high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. This routine will help in better control of blood sugar.

Symptoms of high sugar are fatigue and weakness, increased thirst and urination, sudden weight gain /loss, irritability, dizziness, numbness in legs etc. But usually all patients may not have these symptoms. It is better to check sugar levels regularly if you have family history of diabetes or are overweight. Breathlessness or difficulty in breathing is the most prominent symptom of asthma. Hope that helps.

lybrate-user, You have a BMI of 33.06 kgs/M2, suggesting grade 1 obesity. This itself can be a main cause for increased lipids. High uric acid also needs to be corrected to help reduce ankle pain. Further, if hypothyroidism is not in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to reduce weight do not succeed. Your HbA1c% shows a good blood glucose control. But if you reduce weight dyslipidemia and diabetes control will be much better and even joint pain will be reduced. For reducing uric acid avoid sea foods like certain fishes, mushrooms, mussels and red meat, sweetened aerated drinks, alcohol. Eggs and dairy products are good. If you have any specific questions please do come back. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, From what you have written, there is no clue about what is the current blood glucose level. Please give following details to give any guidance or advice: fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Please understand one thing clearly, diabetes is a disease which can only be controlled by appropriate drugs, diet control and exercise. There is no CURE. You will have to live with it. If you do not treat it properly then serious long term complications will affect every single vital organ in your body. Only treatment available is with modern medicines. Thanks.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.
