It's better to avoid food that is causing harm to the body by increasing uric acid levels and we can skip the medication and concentrate only on diet and if symptoms arises than get blood checked for uric acid levels

Please have small meals in your day (place at 2 hourly gap) take more of complex cards like roasted grains. Balance the sugar of your fruits by combining it with salads and soups. Take multigrain chapatti to reduce the gluten in your diet. Drink plenty of water and include some, cinnamon in your dairy preparation for maintaining the lactose of milk.

Since when are you noticing this change? It appears you have developed diabetes, mostly T2. Please get a HbA1c% test done, which will give an idea about whether this phenomenon has been there for a long time. Looking at your height and weight you have a BMI of 25.45 kgs/M2, showing a mild overweight. You need to exercise regularly and also reduce weight to about 66 kgs. There is a need to take antidiabetic drug treatment. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are to be given. So please come in a private conversation with all the details. Thanks.

My father got thyroid. We had test from Lab and they said THCL is 179. Something. But the doctor said that they have not did proper report. I want to know is it possible thcl 179.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Tasveer, Is he on treatment for hypothyroidism? If yes what is the dose being taken? Secondly the level mentioned by you of 179 is of what, plus there is no mention of any unit. So difficult to comment. If you have any doubt please get the test repeated, that will clarify the situation. Are you referring to TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)?

Lybrate-user, if some one has hypothyroidism, then following things should be avoided: soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables including palak. A good deal of fruits, use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Avoid high fat milk products. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour, to keep weight in check.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Calf pain in young age is commonly due to muscle cramps which results from 1. Dehydration, 2. Calcium deficiency considering your age its most likely due to dehydration or nutrition related. It will be relieved by simple measures as follows: take adequate liquids, sports drink like gatorade, fruit juices, buttermilk, lemonade etc. 2. You can massage calf muscles and apply cold pack when they pain. In cases of severe pain take simple analgesics like paracetamol. 3 avoid prolonged standing or sitting cross-legged. Change postures in between. 4. Take calcium supplements. 5. Take healthy nutritious diet. 6. If you are taking medicines like diuretics, statins, review with your doctor as they can cause cramps too. If problem persists get your thyroid profile, kidney functions done and consult with your doctor.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Little bit of weight gain can be due to thyroid dysfunction. But you can not blame it completely as weight also depends on lifestyle.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS
If you have an under active thyroid gland, avoid consuming large quantities of goitrogens. These are substances that can suppress the thyroid gland if consumed in very large quantities. Foods rich in goitrogens include raw vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts; as well as soy, millet, peanuts and corn. Cooking these foods is advisable and inactivates the majority of goitrogens.

Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Thyroid TSH report is 4.78 and I am using Thyronorm 25 mcg. Is this dosage enough or do I need to increase the dosage.
if one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units, for proper control of all symptoms. At 4.78 milli units/l if you still have any of the symptoms, then there is a need to increase the dose by about 12.5 mcg per day. That should help in bringing down tsh to the desired level. So after increasing the dosage tsh should be checked after 6 weeks. If desired level is achieved, then continue the same dosage. Thanks for the question.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain.
