The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Hi. My dad 58 years old diabetic and hypertensive patient. He had thorn prick 6 months back or so. Later the thorn was removed by my mom using a sharp object like pin after heating it. The thorn was removed n he had pain and the area was bit hard few days back. I thought it might be corn so I applied a corn cap by Apollo for it. The hard thing has fallen and area is normal and no pain and area of foot is normal. Later two days back I saw that corn caps are contraindicated in diabetics. I wanted to ask was it grave mistake. Or do I have to observe anything.

lybrate-user, In a person with diabetes, particularly in a middle aged or older person, it very essential to avoid using all such methods like using a pin to remove a thorn, applying a corn cap or poking sharp needle etc. Because there is possibility of affection of blood supply to the lower limb, and also neuropathy, which may have already affected sensory fibers. All these can lead to serious problems causing infection, ulceration and spreading of ulcer or leading up to amputation. So one should never do any such attempts at home. It is better to get his foot properly examined by your local doctor, to see if there is any problem. Thanks.

Hello sir. As you did not mentioned the blood sugar value & blood pressure. For blood sugar have 1 full spoon turmeric and 1 full spoon amalaki (gooseberry) choorna paste (add some water) at early morning on empty stomach daily. Drink coconut shell boiled water. For blood pressure reduce salt, deep fried, tinned food items. Drink milk boiled with crushed garlic (5-6 in no) empty stomach early morning, consult with an ayurvedic physician for the same.

If she is sure about taking the medicines regularly and not having missed her doses, then she will require a slight increase in her dosage. If not, then she could regularise her medicines and repeat the test after around 4 to 6 weeks and then increase the dose if the tsh is still high.

Diet alone does not help in reducing weight. You may loose half an inch or one kg but not more. You will have to do yoga/gym/pilate or something to burn calories. When you work out and have a proper shape, stretch marks will get lighter. Drink milk, take multi vitamin tablet everyday. Eat something light every two hours before and after meal.

I am a diabetic patient having fasting sugar 300. What foods to be avoided and my daily diet measures.
Dear lybrate-user, you are suffering diabetes with heavy amount of sugar. You avoid rice, sugar, jagger, ghee, oil, spices etc. Although there are insufficient data at present to warrant any specific recommendations for the prevention of type 2 diabetes in youth, interventions similar to those shown to be effective for prevention of type 2 diabetes in adults (lifestyle changes including reduced energy intake and regular physical activity) are likely to be beneficial. So change in life style is basic need for you.

Sleep related disorder is common in elderly with comorbidities. Good sleep hygiene is advised for the same. Going to bed early, light meals before food, low light, avoiding fatty meal, reading novels, avoiding watching tv in the evening, yoga or relaxation before sleeping are some measures you can try.

From how many years you are suffering from diabetes. Ideally your weight should be around 63 kg. Without further investigation its difficult to give proper solution so please provide detail history of your blood sugar level along with dosage of medicine you are taking.

Check for your blood sugar level. One in empty stomach. Another two hours after a heavy breakfast. Also give mirning first sample of urine for routine test. Looking at the report it will be possible to confirm. Avoid drinking much water in the night. Take small sips only. This will bring down the frequency.

I feel hungry and thirsty most of the time. My parents have diabetes. Are these early signs of diabetes?

Mr. Lybrate-user, feeling hungry and thirsty could be symptoms of diabetes. So it is better for you to get a blood check up done of both fasting and pp sugar levels, that can clarify your doubt. If fasting is >126 mg and pp >200 mg then diabetes is confirmed. If fasting is between 101 to 125 mg it is impaired fasting glucose and pp above 141 to 199 is impaired glucose tolerance (igt). Both these conditions are also referred as prediabetic state. At that stage t2 dm is still preventable.
