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.

Lybrate-user, if you have hypothyroidism, then if that is not well controlled then weight gain will continue. So first thing is to bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units/l, by aking appropriate dose of thyroxine. Then your efforts to control weight will be successful. It is not correct to say once weight gain occurs then it can not be lost.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to keep diabetes in check first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs as prescribed by your doctor. Secondly regular daily exercise of more than 1 hour is essential. Plus restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Avoid eating sweets, direct sugar or gur, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain from alcohol and smoking.

My mother who is 65 is diabetic. She had knee pain, so can't walk.Should she do any exercise, if so what? If she doesn't walk or exercise, how should she control her diabatis? Is it only medicine and food habits? If food habits, what food should she eat? She has type 2 diabatis and uses medicine and not insulin.

Dear, According to Ayurveda joint pain is known as Sandhigata vata. With increase in age vata dosha is predominant in human body that is why with aging disease caused by vata dosha increases in body. Joint pain is a common symptom with many possible causes. Joint Pain and Arthritis are the one of the most devastating conditions faced by individuals, particularly elderly women today. When there is pure Vata dosha involvement (a pain without swelling or discoloration) then the massage with medicated ayurvedic oil is quite useful & supplement is helpful in balancing bodily humors ?vata, which is responsible dosha for Sandhigata vata .

Increased frequency of urination, excessive thirst, increased appetite, decrease in weight, weakness delayed healing of wounds are some of the symptoms of diabetes. Half the cases there are no symptoms at all and diabetes is detected accidentally. Getting fasting and 1 1/2 hours after food sugar reports periodically is the simplest method.

What is your diabetes status? you r drinking too much alcohol only 30 to 60 ml /day is ok. Both alcohol and long time diabetes cause difficulty in erection. Being bp patient you need special precaution while using viagra type drugs. Your wife may b having dryness vagina/post menopause problem. Requiring treatment.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A person in pre-diabetes state has to adapt a modified lifestyle, if he wants to postpone developing diabetes or preventing it. That means he should refrain from sweets, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida, fruits like mango, banana, chikkoo, grapes. Dark chocolate is supposed to be good but without sugar in it. In your case with a BMI of 28.4 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2), with a good deal of excess weight, you need to be more careful. Reason being one of the main cause for precipitating diabetes is excess weight second is inactivity. Thanks.

Mr. M s sodhi, you have mentioned fasting sugar level as 130 - 180 mg, which appears pretty high. What is the recent pp level? hba1c% looks good. When does the sugar level go down is there a specific pattern or time of the day? your lipid profile details are not given fully. Important ones are total cholesterol, hdl, ldl and triglyceride, you have not mentioned those. Tsh level is also high, it should be below 5 mill units / ml. Are you taking any medications for hypothyroidism and dyslipidemia? plus also let me know your dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can give specific suggestions.

Your insulin is not being utilized fully or doesnt produce. That is what type 2 and type 1 is. You have to get the support of certain herbs which are openly available in market but since not selected with precision decisions, some people do not get desired effects. Please write any other history/tests etc. For herbal combos initially you have to take as supporting therapy. Depending upon response, we ll take further step. Pl write in confidence. We may advise or send package also.

Reports are suggestive of mild hypothyroidism and if symptoms are not therre we call it as sub clinical. Antithyroid antibodies are done to detect wather hypothyroidism is due to autoimmunity, means body produces antibodies against its own thyroid glands.In your case repeat TSH after 1 month and if found high or patient develops symptoms of hypothyroidism you can start thyroxin in small dose, under supervision of your physician.
