Mr. Lybrate-user, to suggest a specific diet, I need to know following details, fbs< pp bs & hba1c%, present diet, extent of exercise, based on those details I can give a diet plan. A person with diabetes has to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain flour and whole grain products. Thanks.

I have diabetes - pp 170 - 290. How to control ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

For your height 67 kg is normal weight and you must not allow any gain in the weight. In view of diabetes you must keep your diet low on sugars (carbohydrates) & fats and enough proteins. Keep exercising like walking. Strenuous exercises may burn calories but if you are on anti diabetic drugs, severe exercise for 1 and half hour may precipitate hypoglycaemia at times, so it is better to have regular brisk walking for 4 to 5 kilometers in about an hour. Have small frequent meals in place of 2 large meals at lunch and dinner. Eat lot of salads and one fruit of your choice, avoiding grapes, mangoes, sugarcane juice etc.

People with increased Triglyceride, uric Acid, hypertension should not consume beer?

People with increased Triglyceride, uric Acid, hypertension should not consume beer?
Mr. Lybrate-user, beer contains varying concentration of alcohol (4.2 to 8.5%). Therefore, it is definitely not advisable to consume it in persons with high tgl, hypertension and uric acid. Very small quantity occasionally may be taken. But better to avoid. Plus it gives empty calories. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user. Agar aap ka uric acid 5/2 mg/dl hai to accha hai. Usase taklif nahi honi chahiye. Aapane jo "Lenin Aso titre 400" karake likha hai usaka matalab muze nahi samaza. Uric acid kam karne keliys following food need to be avoided: Organ meat, red meat, certain fishes like herring, haddock, scallop, sardines, salmon, mussels and mushrooms. Eggs can be consumed, so also milk products with low fat. Alcohol and colas should be avoided. Uric acid bahoot logo me jyada rata hai, lekin sab ko usaki vajah se takalif nahi hoti. Agar joint panis hone lage to hi usaka ilaj karane ki jarurat hoti hai. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism as such does not cause any neck pain. Ordinarily it is due to stffening around soft tissue of neck called Cervical spondylosis resulting in pain in neck sometimes radiating to shoulders, upper arms and shoulder blade or back of head

My uric acid innsresses by within 4 days or less I take medicen a lots o medicen from my Dr. Please suggest me what to do.

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.Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.
