I am 57yr old male and I am suffering from hypothyroidism. What should I do? Please help me.
you can take diet for hypothyroidism:- 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. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

No need to worry about these medical results. First of all try to take a curative treatment for your thyroid problems. Do not worry about High triglycerides. It will come down gradually with some simple medicines. Do regular exercise and follow low fatty diet habits. Include more salads in your plate. Avoid fluorine products from your day to day activities. (eg. High flourine Tooth paste, etc)

Mr Meraj Khan, If you have diabetes then depending on the type T1 or T2 DM and sugar level, treatment will vary. In addition to drugs you will have to take a properly planned diet and exercise regularly for at least 1 hour. If you are looking for specific treatment please come in a private conversation, where I can give specific advice. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines.

I'm 19 years old suffering from hyperuricemia (9.3) so please help me to overcome from this.

MBBS, DFM, FID, CERTIFICATE COURSE IN EVIDENCE BASED DIABETES MANAGEMENT, Certificate Course in Management of Thyroid Disorders, Advanced Certificate Course in Prevention and Management of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, M.MED
General Physician, Hyderabad
I'm 19 years old suffering from hyperuricemia (9.3) so please help me to overcome from this.
Hi high levels of uric acid in the blood cause crystals to form and accumulate around a joint. Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down a chemical called purine. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. Medication also is needed to manage pain and to lower levels of uric acid. Purpose A little history Gout has been associated for centuries with overindulgence in meats, seafood and alcohol. The condition was, in fact, considered a disease of the wealthiest people — those who could afford such eating habits. And long before the cause of gout was understood, doctors had observed some benefit of a restricted diet on gout management. For many years, treatment for gout focused on eliminating all foods that had moderate to high amounts of purine. The list of foods to avoid was long, which made the diet difficult to follow. Current understanding More recent research on gout has created a clearer picture of the role of diet in disease management. Some foods should be avoided, but not all foods with purines should be eliminated. And some foods should be included in your diet to control uric acid levels. The purpose of a gout diet today is to address all factors related to disease risk and management. Above all, the goals are a healthy weight and healthy eating — a message that applies to lowering the risk of many diseases. Diet details The general principles of a gout diet are essentially the same as recommendations for a balanced, healthy diet: Weight loss. Being overweight increases the risk of developing gout, and losing weight lowers the risk of gout. Research suggests that reducing the number of calories and losing weight — even without a purine-restricted diet — lowers uric acid levels and reduces the number of gout attacks. Losing weight also lessens the overall stress on joints. Complex carbs. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which provide complex carbohydrates. Avoid foods such as white bread, cakes, candy, sugar-sweetened beverages and products with high-fructose corn syrup. Water. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water. An increase in water consumption has been linked to fewer gout attacks. Aim for eight to 16 glasses of fluids a day with at least half of that as water. A glass is 8 ounces (237 milliliters). Talk to your doctor about appropriate fluid intake goals for you. Fats. Cut back on saturated fats from red meats, fatty poultry and high-fat dairy products. Proteins. Limit daily proteins from lean meat, fish and poultry to 4 to 6 ounces (113 to 170 grams). Add protein to your diet with low-fat or fat-free dairy products, such as low-fat yogurt or skim milk, which are associated with reduced uric acid levels. Recommendations for specific foods or supplements include the following: High-purine vegetables. Studies have shown that vegetables high in purines do not increase the risk of gout or recurring gout attacks. A healthy diet based on lots of fruits and vegetables can include high-purine vegetables, such as asparagus, spinach, peas, cauliflower or mushrooms. You can also eat beans or lentils, which are moderately high in purines but are also a good source of protein. Organ and glandular meats. Avoid meats such as liver, kidney and sweetbreads, which have high purine levels and contribute to high blood levels of uric acid. Selected seafood. Avoid the following types of seafood, which are higher in purines than others: anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, haddock, mackerel and tuna. Alcohol. The metabolism of alcohol in your body is thought to increase uric acid production, and alcohol contributes to dehydration. Beer is associated with an increased risk of gout and recurring attacks, as are distilled liquors to some extent. The effect of wine is not as well-understood. If you drink alcohol, talk to your doctor about what is appropriate for you. Vitamin C. Vitamin C may help lower uric acid levels. Talk to your doctor about whether a 500-milligram vitamin C supplement fits into your diet and medication plan. Coffee. Some research suggests that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of gout, particularly with regular caffeinated coffee. Drinking coffee may not be appropriate for other medical conditions. Talk to your doctor about how much coffee is right for you. Cherries. There is some evidence that eating cherries is associated with a reduced risk of gout attacks. A sample menu Here's a look at what you might eat during a typical day on a gout diet: Breakfast Whole-grain, unsweetened cereal with skim or low-fat milk 1 cup fresh strawberries Coffee Water Lunch Roasted chicken breast slices (2 ounces) on a whole-grain roll with mustard Mixed green salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing Skim or low-fat milk Water Afternoon snack 1 cup fresh cherries Water Dinner Roasted salmon (3-4 ounces) Roasted or steamed green beans 1/2 cup whole-grain pasta with olive oil and lemon pepper Water Low-fat yogurt 1 cup fresh melon Caffeine-free beverage, such as herbal tea Dos and do nots Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #1 High-fibre foods According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fibre may help lower uric acid levels in your blood. Dietary fibre may help absorb uric acid in your bloodstream, allowing it to be eliminated from your body through your kidneys. Increase the consumption of dietary soluble fibres such as Isabgol, Oats, Spinach, Broccoli to name few. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #2 Cold-pressed olive oil Use cold-pressed olive oil in cooking instead of shortening, butter or vegetable oils. Oils that have been subjected to heat or processing turn rancid quickly. Rancid fats destroy vitamin E in your body - this vitamin is necessary for controlling uric acid levels. Olive oil helps you avoid the production of excess uric acid, which is associated with the consumption of rancid fats. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #3 Take in a healthy dose of vitamin C To help reduce the amount of uric acid in your system, regularly taking 500 milligrams of vitamin C will decrease your uric acid levels in a month or two. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #4 Avoid bakery products Avoid cakes, pastries, cookies and other sugary delights which are rich in saturated fats and trans fats. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #5 Celery seed extract This is also a popular natural remedy for gout and uric acid problems. The seeds of the celery plant have long been used to treat gout, rheumatism and arthritis. Celery possesses sedative, antioxidant and mild diuretic action and is considered a urinary antiseptic. In rare cases, this herb is also used to treat sleeplessness, anxiety and nervous breakdown. Although the seeds of this plant are often used in herbal supplements, the roots may also be used. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #6 Antioxidant-rich foods Fruits and vegetables such as red bell peppers, tomatoes, blueberries, broccoli and grapes are rich sources of antioxidant vitamins. Antioxidants which are vitamins that prevent free radical molecules from attacking your organ and muscle tissue cells may help lower uric acid levels. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #7 Cherries Cherries contain chemical compounds that may help neutralise uric acid allowing your body to eliminate this acid as waste. Some researchers recommend consuming 30 to 40 cherries every four hours during an attack. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #8 Apple cider vinegar It is believed that raw, apple cider vinegar can help alleviate high uric acid levels by changing the pH values of your blood. But it has to be raw, un-distilled, un-pasteurised apple cider vinegar; the kind you get from your local health food store. Dr. Sharad advices a simple home remedy" Add 2 teaspoons of vinegar to a large glass of water and stir thoroughly. Drink a glass between 2 and 3 times every day. You can also use it topically: half a cup added to three cups of hot water and soak the affected area for 30 minutes. Reheat and repeat as necessary. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #9 Saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and alcohol All these affect your triglycerides, a type of fat that can clog your arteries and increase your risk for heart attacks and strokes. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #10 High-fructose corn syrup This is a type of sweetener in soft drinks and other processed foods that can elevate your levels of triglyceride and uric acid - a chemical associated with diabetes, gout, alcoholism, kidney disease and other health problems. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #11 Drink plenty of fluids to help flush uric acid from your body Drink a minimum of 3 and 1/2 liters of water daily. Water is a medium that aids the kidney to'strain' the impurities from your body. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #12 Also avoid high-protein weight-loss diets which can cause you to produce too much uric acid (hyperuricemia). Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #13 Limit meat, poultry and fish - animal proteins are high in purine and this will result in high uric acid levels in the body Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #14 Limit or avoid alcohol Alcohol interferes with the elimination of uric acid from your body. Drinking beer in particular has been linked to gout attacks. If you are prone to uric acid attacks, limit alcohol consumption to one drink three times a week. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #15 Choose complex carbohydrates Eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables and fewer refined carbohydrates such as white bread, cakes and candy. Because foods rich in complex carbohydrates promote feelings of fullness, and prevent overeating and are useful in maintaining a healthy weight. SEE VERY GOOD SENIOR ORTHOPEDICIAN.

Diabetic patients can drink coconut water? Dish prepared with raagi cereals? Milk products?

Diabetic patients can drink coconut water? Dish prepared with raagi cereals? Milk products?
Lybrate-user, yes a person with diabetes can drink cocnut water, in 100 g it gives about 19 calories. Plus provides some electrolytes, some fibers and vitamins. Ragi whole grain flour is definitely healthy, 100g of ragi flour gives 71 to 89 % complex carbs proteins 5.8 to1 2 % and fibers 3.5 to 3.9% and fat 1.3 to3.7 %, in addition it contains minerals and vitamins. Hence dishes made out of ragi are healthy and nutritious, all milk products are good but they should have low fat. Thanks.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Your HBA1c only tells you the blood sugar control over 3 months. So if your blood sugars are normal and only your HBA1c is high I would recommend you to continue the same medications and repeat HBA1c after 3 months. About your weight, I would definetly recommend weight loss. Because the weight itself can increase your blood sugars.

Fasting sugar more than 126 mg confirms you have diabetes. Most common causes anemia is nutritional deficiencies -iron, b12, folic acid group of vitamins supplements may help. In some group of patients internal bleeding from piles or chronic ulcers/ varices are cause of anemia some families have known to have genetic variants hemoglobinopathies /traits positive. If you get your anemia profile done then probably you can get clear picture of type of anemia and treatment required for the same. You should also get your post lunch sugar -so that you can control your diabetes with dietary changes initially.

Hello lybrate-user, in type 1 diabetes, insulin is the only line of management. Some newer drug are approved by FDA but they are add-on to your insulin and efficacy wise these drugs are not effective as single therapy but insulin can't be substituted.
