Uric acid is byproduct of protein which needs discarding from the body but in the absence of vit C this accumulates in fine joints of fingers in the form of crystals. You have to take higher doses of Vit C as supplements.

Helenji, If you are saying there is a swelling in the are of thyroid gland, then it may be associated with thyroid gland. It is better if you get a thyroid assay done, that will help in finding out whether there is any problem in your thyroid gland. Later you can post those reports and I will be able to guide.

One can prevent diabetes if a strict life style modification is followed. Namely maintain your weight near normal, (which is fine with you as the weight is much less, exercise for more than 1 h every day, avoid deep fried foods, less of sweets and direct sugar. Also avoid alcohol and smoking. With these changes you should be able to keep free from diabetes.

Hello Please continue the medication for diabetes. Also know your diet what exactly you are eating in a diet. Protein intake should be high compared to carbohydrates. 1. Protein 2. Vitamins and minerals. 3. Fiber 4. Omega-3 these are the few products we suggest to people to give a optimal health. Along with above supplements. Start doing morning walking which help you to strengthen your body. And you won't feel tired when you are climbing stairs or little more extra work.

Hello, in young adolescents some time gynecomastia develops. This is a hormonal problem related to age. If the size is too big, then there are surgical procedures available to reduce that. There is no specific treatment, occasionally drugs are used but not much benefit is observed. Most often pubertal gynecomastia is a self limiting condition which will recover spontaneously. Surgery is the other better option.

You can consider your fasting sugar level to be normal. Do your Post Meal check after One and half hour of taking food and if it is below 160 mg per 100 ml of blood, then that would also be within normal range. You can also get your HbA1C and it should come not more than 5.5.

Good morning as per the information provided you are suffering from diabetes for the past 2 years. Presently your fasting blood glucose is 120 mg% and pp blood glucose is 205 mg%. The hbaic is 8.6 I assume (806 is not possible). From these values it is evident that blood sugar is not very well controlled as your hbaic is 8.6 (it should be preferably below 7.5, if not 7). The medications that you have been provided are fine. It's a combination of glimeperide, metformin and voglibose (which are standard drugs). Methycobal has been added since you are diabetic who can develop neuropathy also. However, your blood glucose needs to be monitored. Preferably you should purchase a glucometer and keep a record of your blood sugar. Persistent high sugar level may be harmful for your eye, kidneys, nerves and heart. Recheck you hbaic after 3 months. If it remains more than 8.5 insulin may be needed. Get your eyes checked and urine for spot acr checked. Hope this helps

Your hypothyroidism won't affect baby. Pcos patients have difficulty in conceiving. But most of them do conceive with medicines or other procedures. Once conception takes place, pcos doesn't harm baby.

Dear lybrate user, you should immediately stop the medication for blood pressure. Regarding your problem of diabetes I fear that you may have become insulin dependant diabetic patient. In that case you should go for insulin injection. However, you could try homoeopathic uranium nit q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. Check your blood sugar level after one month of medication. If you do not observe any decrease in your blood sugar level then you should go for insulin injection.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise you might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months You can share your reports on Lybrate. I can help you better Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest

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.
