Uric acid badne se kiya Karna chahiye? Kiya Khana chahiye or kiya nhi Karna chahiye?

Uric acid badne se kiya Karna chahiye? Kiya Khana chahiye or kiya nhi Karna chahiye?
Uric acid badhne per thoda perhej karna chahiye. Jaise paalak(spinach) , milk and milk products, sab sprouts band kar dena. Agar aap koi protein kha rahe ho to wo b band kar dena. Proteins digest n hone ki wajah se uric acid badh jata he. Agar aapko waha ayurvedic medicines milti ho to goxuradi guggul tablet kharid lena. 1-1 goli khane k pehle kha lena. Aaram milega.

I am 35 year old and I am suffering from diabetes. I have fever and chills and shivering and fatigue and nausea and body pain for one month. I consulted a homoeo doctor and gave me eupatorium perf 1m and silicea6x and I am feeling little better. eupatorium perf only one powder daily for four days and silicea 6x 4 tablets two times daily. Now I am feeling little ok not full and now is the fourth day I am taking eupatorium perf powder. So I want to know if it is malaria should I take homoeo medicine long to complete the course or it is enough for 4 days. I have not taken any test for malaria. I am feeling now little chill and body pain and little headache. Pls suggest any advice.

Please note seriously what I am telling, the diagnosis will itself speak. These are my practical experience which I can say are 100% correct. Before this fever starts about 3--4 days before patient feels headache (mild) and feeling of tiredness which he owes to his busy hectic routine. After 3--4 days there is sudden onset of high temperature accompanied by chills for 15--20 minutes followed by warmth and patient starts throwing all bedsheets and blankets at this time temp is between 102-- 104 degrees which drops after half an hour. Now the temp rises once in 24 hours may be visible or only patient feels this is accompanied by severe headache and body ache this symptom remains for about 1 hour and goes to normal without taking any medicines. This happens daily until proper treatment is given. There is vomitting feeling bitter mouth taste, loss of appetite, and progressive weakness. Above features make the patient normal life miserable. Please note in this urine colour is slight yellow or normal. If the above feature matches with your symptoms than you are having malaria which needs proper treatment at an earliest. As regards homeopathy I have no knowledge. If you wish in allopathy I may tell you. Take tab grandem with tab acilock150 mg twice daily after breakfast and dinner. Take tab cefolac-- o 200 mg + tab flexon twice daily after one hour of above noted medicines. Take tab lumerax 80 mg twice daily with milk. Only for 3 days. Take tab trinerve - lc one at bedtime. If fever sometimes rises you may take tab crocin advance when required. Take all these medicines for 7 days except lumerax (only 3 days) after 7 days let me know response for further advice on lybrate paid consultation service.

You can take 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. 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. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

The best person to treat your son will be an Endocrinologist. So consult a regular endocrinologist and follow his advise meticulously, because the boy is of tender age any experimentation will lead to damage to internal organs as diabetes is known as silent killer. For awareness you search in Google but its only awareness and follow the professional advise strictly. Good luck.

Hi Please make sure your taking the right dose of medicines and it's been taken as prescribed by your doctor. Inspite of this if you continue to have recurrent low blood sugars you need dose adjustment and also evaluation of your pancreas to look into the quantity of insulin production.

Alcohol consumption is absolutely not recommended when one is diabetic. But of course once in a while it is fine. Rum by itself does not contain sugar but if taken with coke can be hazardous to a diabetic. It has 38 to 60 % alcohol and alcohol is empty calories.

I am 56 yes old female m diabetic want to know what is converted rice that you recommend for low GI food?
Converted rice is also called parboiled rice. It has low glycemic index means 38 as compared to brown rice which has 50. Parboiled rice is processed under extreme heat and steam. After drying process the bran falls off and discarded. By this process all the nutrients from bran to soak into the endosperm and germ. I think madam rita you get proper reply.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil.

Mr. lybrate-user, Following are criteria for diagnosing diabetes: 1) Normal: Fasting:70 to 110 mg/ 100 ml, PP <140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9 2) Pre-diabetes: FBS :108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg, HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes: FBS 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c% 6.5 and above. A person with normal glucose level is fine. Nothing needs to be done. In pre-diabetes one can prevent it going over to diabetes by adapting a modified lifestyle- namely regular exercise over 1 hour a day, maintaining normal body weight (BMI <23 kgs/M2) and following healthy habits. No drugs are needed, one can prevent diabetes or postpone it. However, once diabetes is diagnosed (as in your case), there no option but to take drugs to control it. Healthy lifestyle helps in achieving better control along with drugs. Ideally one should maintain FBS below 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Your blood glucose levels are way beyond the normal limit, if not controlled promptly, there is a possibility of developing long term complications associated with diabetes. So please initiate immediate treatment with appropriate drugs. Thanks.

To guide you I would need a few more details, like your weight, height, waist circumference, amount of exercise per day and fasting and pp blood sugar levels and hba1c%. Based on these details I can guide. Presently looking at your details it appears that medication may not adequate or food intake may have to be adjusted. Tab vogs 0.3 should be taken with each food that is taken, 0.3 mg three times a day, with first bite of food. I await your info.
