Dear lybrate user with the information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. Regarding your thyroid issues it is advisable if you can keep a check on regular intervals.

If the pain is in you abdomen, you might be suffering from gastritis or gastric ulcer. It is advisable to consult a doctor. 1. Have small frequent meals at regular intervals instead of 3-4 large ones. Have protein rich snacks like lassi/buttermilk/curd/dhokla/khandvi/steamed chicken momo/whole egg/besan chila in between main meals. 2. Drink 3 litres water daily but not with meal. 3. Avoid having tea, coffee, cold drinks, alcohol, smoking, tobacco, painkillers, fried or spicy food.

Eating too much sugar could be the one of causes for diabetes? Should I stop eating sweets? There are lots of rumors I don't know what is true but what I heard is that" the person who has diabetes shouldn't eat sugar but eating too much sugar has nothing to do with diabetes" what is true?

Hi, Both the statements are true. A diabetic person should avoid sweets and sugar, as they will easily be absorbed and will instant rise the blood sugar levels. For a normal person: Too much of sugar will also be absorbed easily by the body, the excess sugar in the body will be converted to fats and stored in the body leading to weight gain. Weight gain is one of the major reason for diabetes. Hence limit your sugars. Regards,

Dear Madam, Your TSH is mildly increased, I don't think you got your T3 and T4 levels checked. When TSH is raised and T3 and T4 are normal then that condition is called Subclinical Hypothyroidism. Here a patient may not have any symptoms. When TSH is raised and T3 and T4 are low, then it called Overt Hypothyroidism, here patient may have symptoms like period problems, dry skin, hair loss, weight gain, low mood etc. So without knowing T3 and T4 levels it is difficult to categorise if you have Subclinical or Overt Hypothyroidism. Period problems can be of different reasons too-may be due to other hormonal imbalance. Did your gynaecologist check your FSH, LH, Estrogen, Progesterone etc? Either way whether Subclinical or overt Hypothyroidism, the treatment is the same. You will on thyroxine replacement therapy. You need to take this most probably for lifelong. Once your TSH levels come to normal range, the dose of tablet can be reduced. But do not stop the tablet without informing your doctor, it is very important for young girls to have their TSH in normal range before becoming pregnant. Even though your TSH is in normal range if you stop the tablet, in a few month the TSH will start to raise again. So it is better to be on the least possible dose. Hope this helps you Thank you.

I used troilicity 150 .injection with this I had big gas problem is it safe or I stopped using this for my sugar.
Mr. Lybrate-user, truilicity is a long acting drug, with action lasting over a week. It is quite safe but fairly expensive. There are other treatment options available, which can help in very good blood glucose control. Since you have grade 2 obesity with 36.43 kgs/m2 bmi, that drug must have been recommended, as it also helps in reducing weight. It absolutely essential for you to reduce weight otherwise blood lucose control will be very difficult. Thanks.

My uric acid level is 7.5 and I have pain in joints of my fingers and in my feet.
Please suggest some remedy.
Mr. Lybrate-user, to reduce uric acid, you will have to restrict high purine containing foods like: organ meats, red meat, certain fishes such as sardines, scallops, shell fish, salmon, herrings, haddock, trout, anchovies, mussels, mushrooms. Plus no sweetened aerated drinks, alcohol and high fat milk products. You can take low fat milk products, egg whites, plenty of fruits and vegetables. There are specific drugs used to reduce uric acid called as uricosuric agents which increase the excretion, those can be used.

Hi FBS of 114 is normal. PP of 88 is low.Fasting blood sugars always depend on what you eat the previous night. Have an early dinner. Do not eat high calorie food. Have a cup of milk with some protein powder at bedtime. Apart from this medication dose adjustment is needed.

Uric acid, serum 7.59 mg/dl which seems to be high. Can you help the reason for high uric acid and also need suggestion how to reduce it?

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. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

I'm suffering from diabetes,
Fasting 128 and pp 150
Please suggest medicines for this problem.
Fasting 128 mg, shows diabetes but pp 150 mg is in the pre - diabetes range. Hence, it is better if you get hba1c% done. If that is >6.5% then diabetes is confirmed and in that situation treatment is needed. If diabetes is not confirmed (hba1c%<6.5), then yu need to take precautions like reduce weight (ideal body weight 60 kgs), exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, food products made of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), smoking and alcohol. Daily at least 1 hour's exercise is needed. If you follow a modified lifestyle, then you can delay or prevent developing full fledged diabetes. Thanks.

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?

Advance BHRT Certification, Fellowship in BHRT & Longevity Medicine, Fellowship in Endocrinology, MBBS

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?
usually thyroid issues do not occur in isolation. It is important to look at relative deficiencies of other hormones that influence metabolism. Nevertheless, a simplistic answer to your question would be to go for what is known as a" hormone friendly" diet also known as" non-inflammatory" diet. Iodine supplements also help, but it is better to have a structured, supervised supplementation regimen.
