I am 35 years old. Uric acid is 8.2. Multiple joints are paining severe. Is it possible to have severe pain due to slightly high uric acid level?

Your uric acid levels are not slightly high. They are Significantly higher than normal. Uric acid above 6.0 levels puts you in risk of getting frequent gout attacks. It could be also the cause of your joint pain. However full arthritis tests are recommended as many times a person may have more than one type of arthritis. Another cause of multiple joint pain is inflammatory arthritis.

Jamun is a very good ayurvedic source to keep diabetes in check and so is methi dana and bitter gourd. 1. Mix ½ tsp Turmeric Powder + 1 tsp Amla Powder + ½ tbsp Methi Seeds Powder in half glass of water and take daily in the morning on empty stomach. You can also grow methi sprouts and eat them. 2. Remove the skin and seeds of 4-5 bitter gourds. Crush them to a make a paste. Press this paste on a sieve an extract the juice. Drink this juice on an empty stomach every morning. 3. Boil 1 L of water. Let it simmer for 20 min on low flame. While simmering, add 3 tsp of cinnamon powder. Strain the mixture. Drink entire amount of this water everyday. 4. Take a tablespoon of jamun powder everyday.

Avoid non-veg (animal protein) like meat ,liver, fish .To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines.

Mr. Lybrate-user nath, it appears that present anti - diabetes treatment is not adequate. There needs to be an additional drug or total change of therapy. Plus you also have grade 1 obesity with 30.67 kgs/m2 bmi, which also contributes to high blood glucose. Any operative procedure is under taken only when blood glucose is below 200 mg/100 ml. You have not mentioned bp reading. Are you doing regular exercise like walking for at least 1 hour a day and some muscle strengthening activity daily? in addition to tablets diet control and exercise are very important for getting better control of blood glucose. Thanks.

My fasting blood sugar is 125 and after food 2 hours 180. Which medicine are best for me.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
My fasting blood sugar is 125 and after food 2 hours 180. Which medicine are best for me.
Mr Subhashish, The blood sugar levels mentioned are just below the diagnostic levels. Diabetes is confirmed if fasting is >126 mg/100 ml and PP is >200 mg / ml. If you are not on any medication then these levels are called as a prediabetic condition or Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). If you adapt a strict changed life style can still remain free of diabetes or delay the onset. Regular exercise and proper diet, avoiding alcohol and smoking can be very helpful.

My mother is diabetic patient and she had a history of schizophrenia also. Her schizophrenia is very much vanished but from couple of months there is some new type of sudden disordered behavior observed. She was doing very well and it seems like she had never been suffered from schizophrenia but suddenly a phase arrived in which she use to remain silent and also consume very less food. She stop talking and reply very less for any question. This kind of phase use to came with certain frequency since few months. Can anyone please suggest something better for her. I will be grateful.

Dear lybrate-user, Please let me know your mother's age, the symptoms of schizophrenia and diabetes. The duration of those illnesses and the treatment so far, etc. Only with details, you can get a proper reply. In general, schizophrenia is a life long disorder like diabetes. Both of them will be kept under good control with appropriate drugs and other psychosocial methods. Just if she is doing well or the sugar levels are normal, does not mean that she is not having schizophrenia or diabetes. Both have to kept under control with treatment for life. Otherwise relapses like this happen. Withdrawal is one of the symptoms of schizophrenia relapse. It may not happen as soon as you stop the treatment since many medicines stay in the body for a long time. Get back to your psychiatrist and diabetologist to manage her better.

Hello lybrate-user, First of all you don't need to be so anxious and stressed. Blood glucose values generally increase after meals peaking at 1 hour and then slowly decline to less than 140 mg/dl by 2 hours. For the diagnosis of diabetes, go for two tests 1. Hba1c 2. Blood glucose in fasting state and after taking 75 gms glucose (GTT) There is a substantial probability that both tests will be normal. Don't stress yourself unnecessarily. Do these two simple test to clear the confusion. At the moment there is nothing to say that you have Diabetes. Gud luck!

Dear lybrate-user the stage you are in right now is little bit high. Good thing is you have started to walk, now keep doing it regularly. Secondly avoid eating out, avoid sugar, avoid oily stuff, use pure cooking oil nd never use refined or double refined oil. If you can eat methi ka dana regularly for 3 months without a break your sugar will come to normal. Just soak 1 tea spoon methi ka dana in water overnight and drink that water in morning and chew the methi ka dana.

for backache you can take tab. dolo 650 mg sos. local gel apply on back.i.e. omni gel twice a day. do rest for while. avoid stress. Drink more water, less alcohol. high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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 alcohl if you take.
