Foods that can keep your Uric Acid levels at Normal.


High uric acid levels in the blood stream can lead to a common form of arthritis called gout. To prevent gout, it is essential to maintain good eating habits and have proper medication. 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. Digestion of purine leads to the formation of uric acid. If uric acid is not eliminated normally which is seen in gout sufferers, it can build up in the blood stream leading to joint inflammation and pain.

Water   Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.

Cherries    Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints. Cherries also neutralise the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid.

Apple    Malic acid in apple neutralises uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal.

Lime    The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily.

French bean Juice    Another effective home remedy for gout is french beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid.

Celery seed    This is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results.

Berries    Berries especially strawberries, and blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties so include them in your diet.

Apple Cider Vinegar   Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid.

Pinto Beans    A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

I am diabetic. Even though I am taking tablets & controlling food, if I am not doing exercises or daily walking, my blood sugar level is going up. What can be the reason?

MD - Medicine

Exercise improves insulin sensitivity and also increases glucose use by muscles. So if you skip exercise your sugar level increases.

Hi , 1.Eat a lot of non-starchy vegetables, beans, and fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and berries. 2.Even tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, and papayas tend to have a lower glycemic index than typical desserts 3.Eat grains in the least-processed state possible: “unbroken,” such as whole-kernel bread, brown rice, and whole barley, millet. 4.Limit white potatoes and refined grain products to small side dishes. 5.Limit concentrated sweets—including high-calorie foods with a low glycemic index, such as ice cream—to occasional treats. Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. 6.Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken.Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts), and avocados. 7.Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products. Completely eliminate partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), which are in fast food and many packaged foods. 8.Have three meals and one or two snacks each day, and don’t skip breakfast. 9.Eat slowly and stop when full

Dear , your bmi is 25.7 which makes you slightly overweight. This increases a insulin resistance and thus will play a role in keeping your blood sugar high. A proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.

In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men (1 mg/dL=59.48 µmol/L), and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L) As you are normal the swelling can be due to sprain or detailed check up is needed.

How to control diabetic without medicines.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
One can prevent diabetes by adopting healthy life style. Controlling diabetes without medications is rather impossible. Diabetes occurs because of either deffective insulin secretion or resistance to it's action or both.

I have been diagnosed with thyroid since May 21. I am having Thyrox 25 (1 tab) since the day. But its causing me weakness throughout the day. Please confirm where to refer for my further diagnosis. Many thanks. Niraj Jha M. No. - 9873432595.

Hello, if you have hypothyroidism and if it is not in control, then weakness and tired feeling through out the day and even sleepy feeling can occur. When in excellent control tsh level will be between 3 to 4 mu/l. It is better if you give full details like earlier thyroid test results, current tsh levels and whether you exercise daily or not. Plus whether you are following all the guidelines about dosing and food restriction. Thanks.

Mr kalpesh, if you are using correct technique while injecting then it is highly unlikely for blood to come. Giving injections subcutaneously is not causing any bleeding. So please check the way you inject. Even if it does bleed the drug will get absorbed. There is no loss of insulin.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS
Consume adequate high quality protein. The thyroid gland requires the amino acid tyrosine in order to manufacture thyroid hormones. Tyrosine is found in protein rich foods such as red meat, fish, poultry, but also almonds, avocados, bananas and pumpkin seeds.

fasting <140 and PP <180 is the target ...you need not add other medicines just follow these tips to control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-helps lowering blood pressure and cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-improves metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-, improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:- Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus most often does not produce any symptoms, hence many persons fail to detect that they have t2 diabetes. When fully developed it may cause excess urination, excess thirst, excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. In type 1 diabetes insulin injection is the only treatment, plus it is required for survival of t1 dm patient. Actrapid is a fast acting insulin, its action begins within 30 minutes of administration. Human regular insulin takes little longer to begin its action and it lasts for about 4 to 5 hours. There are many types of insulins, some are fast acting, some are slow acting and certain act over 24 hours.

Mr. lybrate-user, basically to control blood glucose you need appropriate drug and dosage. Ideally when good control is there FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If you have this kind of control then it is good. If not then it is necessary to look at current treatment, dietary practice and extent of daily exercise. If need be some additions may have to be done. As regards IME -9 tablets, there is very little information available. It is a combination of some herbal remedies, based on ancient ayurvedic texts. There is no new research or evidence. No double blind clinical studies are done. Results are based on some lab animal studies. So the choice is yours. Thanks.

Hi looking at your height and weight, you are having grade 1 obesity, with bmi of 30.35 kgs/m2. The reason for this could be hypothyroidism, as it increases weight. Unless well controlled efforts to reduce weigh will not be fruitful. As regards the treament with thyroxine, yes it has to be started immediately. Aim is to bring down tsh levels to around 3 to 4 milli units/l. This is a condition occurring due to deficiency of hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. Since that hormone is required daily for multiple metabolic functions and functioning of brain, replacement has to be continued for life time. It is very safe treatment. Thanks for the question.
