I am 37 years old I have high level of uric acid in blood, I am having ankle pain what should I do?

I am 37 years old I have high level of uric acid in blood, I am having ankle pain what should I do?
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 for pain in joints. Doctor may be give corticosteroid oral or inject direct in to joint.

Mr Roney, If your blood sugars are as low as stated, then it is really good. Even your earlier readings show that you only had impaired glucose tolerance, not diabetes. So if you continue to live a healthy life style you can remain free from it. As regards eating rice, potatoes and sweets, you can do it with in the limit. Because eating excess can always drive your sugar higher. Plus you have to maintain a healthy normal weight.

there is no permanent cure for diabetes. This disease can only be controlled by regular treatment either with oral anti diabetics or with insulin injections. Diet and exercise are supportive therapies.

Hello a healthy lifestyle can delay and even prevent diabetes, even if it is your family and you have inherited the'diabetic' genes. Regular exercise such as swimming, cycling, or walking helps to delay or prevent diabetes: 30 minutes a day is the recommended minimum, but 90 minutes a day is needed to lose weight. Exercise is proven to prevent diabetes. Gaining weight increases the risk of diabetes 2-3 times at least. A healthy diet helps to delay or prevent diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are having hypothyroidism and on treatment then tsh level should be between 3 to 4 milli units, then only efforts to reduce weight will benefit.

Mr Anthony, Looking at the details given, it appears that the kidney function is good. Even on one kidney a person can live a normal life. As regards her BP if it is in control with cilindipine continue the same. Her sugar levels are high. Fasting 114 mg is marginally high. Whereas after food levels is definitely too high, suggesting a need for taking proper anti diabetic medication. Ayurvedic drugs do not bring the sugar levels to normal. After food level is taken after 2 h of food. If it is above 200 mg, signifies diabetes. Please understand various conditions which she has are not curable, they can only be controlled with proper medication. So continue the treatment. If kidney function does go down then dialysis is the option.

It appears that you are having both t2dm and hypothyroidism. Please understand both these conditions can be controlled only by taking regular medications. For diabetes one has to take oral anti- diabetic drugs or insulin injections and for hypothyroidism thyroxine tablets for the whole life. There is no escape from this. As regards food in case of diabetes you have to avoid direct sugar & sweets, plus deep fried foods and fruits like mangoes, bananas, chikoos & grapes. And maintain your weight near normal for your height which is a bmi of 23 kgs/ m2 yours is 25.16 kgs/m2. Plus no smoking and alcohol. This life style has to be followed strictly.
