How much salt or sodium is good for me?
How much sugar is good for me?
Which foods and drinks containing sugar cause ...
Approximately 4-6 gms of sodium is sufficient for your daily needs.This equals about 2 tsps of common salt. 2-3 tsps of sugar can suffice daily, however this should include any sweets, dessert, and your tea, coffee etc. Try to avoid free sugar intake.... instead have dried fruits & fresh fruits.

Fasting glucose<100 mg/dl is defined as normal. So a fasting of 99 mg/dl is definitely borderline. However, do not worry too much. Exercise a lot. Eat healthy.

If you are under proper diet plan, exercise and regular medications with a follow up under the supervision of a qualified physician or a diabetologist get blood sugar checked fasting, 1 1/2 hours after heavy morning meal and just before dinner. Show this to your regular physicain. Dosage may be less effective or there may be some accompanied new problem like some infection etc. Leave it to the doctor.

I am 42, and I am suffering from increased rate of uric acid in my foot, please tell me some precautions?

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.
