What are do,s and don't, s in uric acid and high ldl ?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
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.

Diabetes and its Management with the Help of Ayurveda

MD - Ayurveda

Diabetes and its Management with the Help of Ayurveda

When the sugar concentration in the blood increases suddenly and unreasonably, the resulting condition is known as diabetes. Sugar or glucose is generally used in order to provide much needed energy to our bodies. But when the pancreas dysfunctions, it leads to a problem in the insulin production. As a result, glucose or sugar gets directly absorbed into the blood, instead of getting absorbed by insulin. And this leads to the condition of diabetes.

As an ancient science based on lifestyle related treatment methods that include herbs, massages and life changing tweaks, Ayurveda also provides various methods of managing this ailment. Here's how!

  1. Bitter Gourd: Known as an ingredient that is rich in antioxidants, this can be consumed to take care of diabetes. You will need to first remove the peel of at least four to five bitter gourds before crushing them to create a paste. This paste has to be put through a sieve so that the juice of the gourds can be extracted. You will then have to drink this juice every morning, on an empty stomach.
  2. Cinnamon: From treating coughs and colds to diabetes and other serious ailments, this is a wonder spice that can be found in most Indian kitchens. You can start by boiling a litre of water and letting it simmer on the gas for about twenty minutes. Thereafter, you can add three teaspoons of cinnamon powder to this simmering water. Strain this mixture and drink the entire batch every day to clear out the toxins.
  3. Fenugreek Seeds: For this, you will need to take about four to five tablespoons of fenugreek seeds. These will have to be soaked in a glass of water or about 250ml of water, overnight. In the morning, the softened seeds will need to be crushed before the mixture is strained. The water that escapes should be collected and ingested every day for a period of two months.
  4. Turmeric: Turmeric is a powerful and well known ingredient that is used for curing and managing many ailments. You will need to mix about half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of amla powder as well as half a tablespoon of methi seeds or fenugreek seeds powder. This concoction will have to mixed in half a glass of water and taken daily on an empty stomach. This can be used by patients suffering from heart ailments as well.
  5. Diet: Cereals like ragi, corn, kulit, green millet, and barley are known to beneficial for patients suffering from diabetes. Leafy greens are also a must for such patients along with protein-rich foods like soya beans.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have thyroid I am 40 years old, what I should do?
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

If the weight gain has increased drastically without making any evident change in food and other physical activities. I recommended you to get your thyroid levels checked. Still for basic weight loss to be achieved maintains a balanced diet of not more than 1500 calories per day. 1. Refined sugars in coffee and tea should be completely stopped, shift to multigrain chapatti instead of only wheat based and have more complex crabs in your snacks time like roasted grain and salads. 2.2serving of fruits should be included but keep the serving size maximum to 1 at one time. 3. Include 1-2 portions of proteins in form of tofu, paneer, sprouts and oat meals daily in the evening time to manage the intake of carbohydrates after 7: 30 pm. 4. Maintain a good balanced of carbohydrates, fats and protein to the ratio and include a cardio session of 45 mins daily for at least 5 days a week to maintain a good health overall.

How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?
Dear lybrate-uservery good question. You See uric acid is a by product or breaking doennof certain molecules in the body. Especially it is acomponent of break down of cells. Normally our body is a perfect machine which is efficiently able to throw out this uric acid. Uric acid can increase if there is excessive intake of products that produce it like alcohol, spinach, red meat etc. Or if the enzymes that are used to process it are deficient. Or if the kidneys are not working, as uric acid is excreted through kidneys. Acute hyperuricemia can cause severe pain and swelling in a single joint. Most commonly it affects the great toe. Avoiding alcohol, red meat; drinking plenty of water are some of the ways to avoid it. Regards.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am surprised to know that" sometime you don't get one medicine at shops for months" that too in a city like nagpur. Getting fed up with treatment is not going to help as this is a treatment for lifetime. There is no other option. Unfortunately only appropriate drugs are in the allopathic or modern medicine. Now it is your choice whether to continue or change over to some other practice. All over the world these are the medicnes for diabetes.

I have gout. Uric acid is 7.5 mg/dl. Please tell me what precautions I need to take.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe) is usually characterized by recurrent attacks of inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours. The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases. It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. Prevention: Both lifestyle changes and medications can decrease uric acid levels. Dietary and lifestyle choices that are effective include reducing intake of food such as meat and seafood, consuming adequate vitamin C, limiting alcohol and fructose consumption, and avoiding obesity. Coffee, but not tea, consumption is associated with a lower risk of gout. Medication: Take homoeooapthic medicine – Colchicum 30/ 3 times a day daily for 1 month, report back to me.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, getting sugar level down is not only a matter of medicine, but also diet & lifestyle control. Start drinking less than 1 ltr water in 24 hrs, eat only light meals, min gap between meals should be 6 hrs. Work on digestion and you will get better.

I recommend to control your sugar level 1) a healthy and well balanced diet having regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body like olive oil 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals ex. Oatmeal, broccoli, flaxseed, avocado, berries, barley, carrot.

Hi, I am 28 years old, i am having thyroid problem and i am using neo-mercazole tablets since 3 years, but not cured my problem please tell me another way to reduce thyroid problem.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi, in hyperthyroidism usually anti-thyroid drugs like neo-mercazole are given for about 18 to 24 months. After that if thyroid function has not reverted to normal then other options are considered. Those include surgical removal or using radio active iodine to ablate the thyroid secreting cells. Because if neo-mercazole has not been able to suppress the activity of thyroid gland even after using for 3 years, then it may not benefit much. So you will have look for above mentioned options. Radioactive iodine is a really good option. Thanks for the question.

Dear patient, it is a good news that your levels under control but the recent report shows less than the normal range. Now you need to take 50 mcg one day and 25 mcg another day so that you can alternate taking these medicines and once again you need to check your thyroid levels, take care.
