I am suffering from non-alcoholic liver Cirrhosis for the past few years. Besides this Diabetics type 2 and BP. Twice EVL has done through endoscopy. At this moment I approached Acupressure specialist. Every fifteen days one sitting. So far 6 sittings are over. Before starting ACC Pre. Stopped taking medicines for sugar and BP. Recently all the tests are done like LFT, CBP etc. All are in normal stage except Billuribm increased to 2.9. For the last two months foot swelling, terrific itching in the groin (this is there for the last 6 years). Now I am using medicine for dewatering for the last one week and taking only 1Lt of water. I could not able to take food even small quantity. Creatine level is 0.9 only. Now I am very week. In early 1992 it all started with ulcers in the duodenal. Now they are not there. I am a smoker for the last 40 years. Per day 5 cigarette now reduced to 3. What is your advice?

In my opinion you should not have stopped diabetes and bp drugs. Swelling can be due to cirrhosis or you may be having proteinuris (that is increased protein in urine due to diabetic kidney disease). Creatinine is affected in later stages of diabetic kidney disease. You have not mentioned about latest blood sugar and blood pressure. Smoking can be the reason of duodenal ulcer. I suggest you to stop smoking because you already have a high risk of heart disease, get 24 hour urine tested for proteins and creatinine clearance, check hba1c, fbs, bp and continue dewatering medicines. Also restrict salt in your diet to less than 2gm/day which means no added salt in salad, curd, no pickles, chutney, no lassi, no bakery products.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

Why for Type II Diabetics quantum of a insulin to be injected before dinner is much less than before breakfast?

Why for Type II Diabetics quantum of a insulin to be injected before dinner is much less than before breakfast?
As your meals are mostly during day time n so the risk of blood glucose getting high also rises. So morning dose is usually higher. But it depends on person to person.

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is difficult to understand what exactly is the problem with your feet. Are you talking about problem related to diabetic neuropathy or pain due to conditions like plantar fasciaitis? Creams are hardly beneficial in such problems. Strict blood glucose control is a primary need. Plus regarding the body weight at your age ideal body weight has to be about 72 kgs. This can be gained by strict glucose control and then taking additional proteins and doing regular exercise. Thanks.

I have a sharp pain in my heels from last one week. The uric acid level is 6.2. Thanks.
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.

Hello. The pregnancy rate per cycle is 20-30% and this also declines with age. The mdicines that you are on are gonna help you. Just take a balanced diet with gud amt of protein that might help with hair fall and consult your doc if you do not conceive in another six months.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
With such a high level of tsh you still not on treatment is it? please tell me if you are taking thyroxine tablet and what is the dosage. If no treatment is being taken then you have to start on thyroxine tablets. You may begin with 50 mcg per day, to be taken early in the morning on empty stomach and nothing to taken for two hours after that. After 3 to 4 weeks check tsh levels again if still high then increase the dosage.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the glucose levels mentioned show that it is totally uncontrolled diabetes. Hba1c% has not been mentioned. It is essential to have fasting blood sugar closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Otherwise you are inviting serious long term complications of diabetes like retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, foot ulcers, non healing foot ulcers and amputation as well as silent heart attacks. So my suggestion is to start immediate treatment with appropriate medications, plus regular exercise and diet control.
