Mr. lybrate-user, If you have joint pains or gouty arthritis, then you need to take drugs which help excretion of uric acid. Plus if there is acute painful arthritis then for some days (till attack subsides), may need NSAIDs. Plus you will have to avoid high purine containing foods like organ meat, mutton, certain sea foods like scallops, herring, haddock, sardines, salmon, mussels and mushrooms. Also avoid aerated drinks and alcohol. Thanks.

Not at all, all nuts are good for health if taken raw. New research from Louisiana State University found that people who regularly eat tree nuts — including almonds, macadamias, pistachios, walnuts, and cashews — have lower risks for Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Their C-reactive protein (a major marker of inflammation) levels were lower. Their HDL (“good cholesterol”) levels were higher.

No need to worry. Thyroid problems are very common. Just a daily pill takes care of the problem. Its a minor issue. As for other tests. I can't say since you have not mentioned the tests. I think they would be routine tests. So just relax. You can connect after you get the reports and advice by doctor if you still have a doubt.

Hello , pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.

Please note that it will take sufficient time and management to heal completely. As of now take apple cider vinegar which will help relieve acute pain. You can also add honey to the remedy to boost the body’s anti-inflammatory response. 1. Mix one teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons.

Hi Lybrate user. People with diabetes have shoulder pain and stiffness (frozen shoulder) more commonly than those without diabetes. And your blood sugars are well controlled. Even if it related to diabetes, you should seek help from orthopedic surgeon so that condition can be treated early and you don't develop irreversible damage to your shoulder.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Fungal infection is the commonest cause; especially if you are diabetic. So you need to go to a doctor to get a prescription of an anti-fungal cream.

Dear, I can empathize well with you. Ed (erectile dysfunction) is very common with long standing diabetes. Firstly control blood sugar very well. Improve your lifestyle. Increase physical activity, good diet control, smoking cessation and reduce the alcohol. If you're not having any of above than you need to visit a doctor to get prescription for medicine that helps get good erection. It'll be worth taking your partner in confidence. A detailed discussion about your problems will halp.

Mr Rakesh, If a person has diabetes then he should take a balanced diet, th provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made out of maida. Should also avoid sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing foods, highly processed packaged foods. Also avoid red meat and alcohol. As regards fruits apart from mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes, other fruits can be taken but about 100 g a day with excellent blood glucose control.

Take your regular medications on time and do regular blood sugar checks. Get your self checked by a doctor for your joint problems. Do regular exercise which will not only help you reduce weight but also reduce pain in the long run. (yoga including pranayam will bring harmony in mind and body) follow up with me if required.

Diet Tips to Improve the Health of Your Thyroid Gland

Practical Course in Diabetology, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN DIABETOLOGY, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Srinagar
Diet Tips to Improve the Health of Your Thyroid Gland

The thyroid gland in your body is responsible for controlling and secreting those hormones that help in your natural growth and development. These hormones are crucial in regulating some of the most important functions of your body,  such as your heart rate, breathing, your body weight, your menstrual cycle and your muscle power to name a few. 

Problems of the thyroid gland (such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism) can hamper all of these vital functions, and these problems usually arise due to a poor diet. However, your diet can also help in improving the health of your thyroid gland. Here are some diet tips to help you out:

  1. Include lots of iodine in your diet: Iodine is a  nutritive element, without which your thyroid gland will not be able to function at all, being its building block. Therefore, iodine rich foods, such as fortified salt, eggs, seaweed and other dairy products should be a part of your diet. Along with iodine, zinc, selenium, copper and iron are other very important elements that should be a part of your diet too. 
  2. Plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants help: Since stress (blame it on cortisol, the stress hormone that overworks your thyroid in case of chronic stress) plays a major role in hampering the proper functioning of your thyroid gland, eliminating it and detoxifying yourself is extremely important. This can be done by  including plenty of B vitamins and antioxidants in your diet. White meat, fishes like tuna, peanuts, brown rice and fruits such as goji berries and wild blueberries can be of great help in this regard.
  3. Say no to soy: Soy is one of the main culprits behind the malfunctioning of your thyroid gland, as it contains an element known as isoflavones, which can reduce the iodine reserve in the gland. Apart from that, vegetables that belong to the brassica family such as cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are linked to causing goitre and must be avoided. Consumption of gluten must be avoided too, as it can cause autoimmune thyroid disorders, celiac disease and hormonal imbalances.
  4. Enjoy your daily meals: In today's fast paced world a stress-free meal is a thing of the past as most people are in a rush to get done with their breakfast, lunch or dinner. This hampers your digestive function and also puts stress on your thyroid glands. The best way to eat is to sit on a table and relax, enjoying every morsel you swallow. This ensures your thyroid remains healthy.
