Uric Acid And Diabetes Type 2

Share on facebook

How to REDUCE Your URIC ACID Naturally with FOODS? Uric acid is a naturally occurring waste product arising from the breakdown of purines, crystalline compounds discovered in particular foods. Under normal conditions, uric acid liquifies in the blood, travels through the kidneys and is eliminated in the urine. If the diet is high in foods containing purine, or the kidneys are unable to get rid of extreme uric acid, high uric acid levels, called hyperuricemia or gout, occur. Change Diet To get control of uric acid levels, prevent eating foods high in purine, the chemical responsible for forming uric acid in the system. Red meat, seafood, organ meats and some beans are all high in purines. Improved carbs and vegetables such as asparagus, peas, mushrooms and cauliflower, should also be prevented. Prevent Fructose Limit your soda consumption. In an article on the Arthritis Today website, researchers discovered men who drank more than 6 portions of high fructose sodas weekly, increased the occurrence of gout. Although diet soda is not implicated, fruit juices and other sugary drinks are. Limitation Alcohol Because alcohol dehydrates the body, it is suggested to restrict consumption, par

Serum Uric Acid Levels And The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes: A Prospective Study.

Abstract To evaluate the impact of serum uric acid levels on the future risk of developing type 2 diabetes independent of other factors.We used prospective data from the Framingham Heart Study original (n=4883) and offspring (n=4292) cohorts to examine the association between serum uric acid levels and the incidence of diabetes. We used Cox proportional hazards models to estimate the relative risk of incident diabetes adjusting for age, sex, physical activity, alcohol consumption, smoking, hypertension, body mass index, and blood levels of glucose, cholesterol, creatinine, and triglycerides.We identified 641 incident cases of diabetes in the original cohort and 497 cases in the offspring cohort. The incidence rates of diabetes per 1000 person-years for serum uric acid levels <5.0, 5.0-5.9, 6.0-6.9, 7.0-7.9 and ≥8.0 mg/dL were 3.3, 6.1, 8.7, 11.5, and 15.9, respectively, in the original cohort; and 2.9, 5.0, 6.6, 8.7, and 10.9, respectively, in the offspring cohort (P-values for trends <.001). Multivariable relative risks per mg/dL increase in serum uric acid levels were 1.20 (95% confidence interval; 1.11-1.28) for the original cohort and 1.15 (95% confidence interval; 1.06-1.23) Continue reading >>

    I've read that giving cold insulin is painful for your doggie and you should prepare the shot an hour before giving it to them? Is this true? My dog seems to whimper when I give him a shot. I'm not sure if its frustration or pain. He's not use to this whole diabetic life poor thing.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    Peggy,
    It's true about cold insulin stinging, but you don't need to necessarily prepare the shot an hour before giving it.
    http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Insulin_use_tips
    "Injecting cold from the refrigerator insulin can sting, regardless of what species, type or brand. Bringing the insulin to room temperature by removing it from the fridge before actually using it can help avoid painful injections. Warming the capped insulin syringe with your hands can have the same effect. Some people tuck the capped and filled syringe under their arm for a few minutes to warm it before use.
    "Do NOT attempt to warm insulin using a stove, microwave, etc.; you may destroy the insulin by doing so."
    You might want to take the vial out of the fridge an hour before you plan to draw from it, thus bringing it to room temperature.
    One VERY important thing is that most are using an insulin which needs to be re-suspended before it's injected--otherwise you won't get the insulin to work properly if you don't.
    http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Rolling_insulin
    "Cloudy insulins must be rolled between the hands or gently rotated and inverted several times slowly, to evenly re-suspend the insulin particles in the liquid, before injection. Continue until the suspension looks uniformly milky or cloudy from end to end.
    "If you don't roll a cloudy insulin, you will inject an incorrect concentration of the insulin, leading to unpredictable insulin action. Worse, if you repeatedly inject a poorly-resuspended insulin, the remainder of the vial or cartridge will change its concentration!
    "Pre-filled syringes and insulin pens containing "cloudy" insulins also need to be rolled or re-suspended before injecting. Gently rolling the pre-filled syringe as is done with a vial will re-suspend it. The instructions with insulin pens and cartridges describe the technique for re-suspending before use.
    "If you shake or drop the insulin, you can cause frothing, which will denature (physically damage) the fragile insulin molecules, and weaken the insulin, again leading to unpredictable insulin action.
    "Shaking also creates many air bubbles which go into the syringe along with the insulin. They are harmful in the respect that when there's air in the syringe, the full unit dose of insulin isn't able to be drawn and injected."
    Syringes should be used with the bevel side of the needle pointing upward:

    Hello Peggy,
    Have been following the thread with interest. Your question about cold insulin was very timely! Normally I pay lots of attention to warming the insulin...this morning we were a little hurried...did not pay enough attention..and Cara sure let me know I screwed up So yes, cold insulin hurts.
    A couple weeks ago we had lots of trouble with the shots..she yelled at me several times. Have now changed gauge size from 28 to 29(can only get those in the States!!) and watch closely that the bevel edge is up and have had no more complaints. I even mark the syringe so I do not turn the syringe prior to the shot.
    So keep up the good work, you will get there! We did!!

What is PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY? What does PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY mean? PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY meaning - PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY definition - PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is damage to or disease affecting nerves, which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected. Common causes include systemic diseases (such as diabetes or leprosy), vitamin deficiency, medication (e.g., chemotherapy, or commonly prescribed antibiotics including Metronidazole and the Flouroquinolone class of antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin, Avelox etc.), traumatic injury, radiation therapy, excessive alcohol consumption, immune system disease, Coeliac disease, or viral infection. It can also be genetic (present from birth) or idiopathic (no known cause). In conventional medical usage, the word neuropathy (neuro-, "nervous system" and -pathy, "disease of") without modifier usually means peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy affecting just one nerve is called "mononeuropathy" and neuropathy involving multiple nerves i

Peripheral Neuropathy Is Associated With Increased Serum Levels Of Uric Acid In Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

We assessed serum uric acid (SUA) levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with or without peripheral neuropathy (diagnosed by the Neuropathy Disability score [NDS]). We enrolled 64 patients with T2DM with peripheral neuropathy (group A: 31 men, mean age 63.0 ± 2.8 years) and 66 age-, gender-, renal function- and T2DM duration-matched patients without neuropathy (group B: 32 men, mean age 62.4 ± 3.1 years). Serum uric acid was significantly higher in group A (P < .001). There was a significant correlation between SUA and NDS in both groups (group A: rs = .93, P < .001; group B: r s = .95, P < .001). C-reactive protein (CRP) was also significantly higher in group A (P < .001) and correlated significantly with SUA in both groups (group A: rs = .93, P < .001; group B: rs = .87, P < .001). Serum uric acid is increased in patients with T2DM with neuropathy versus those without. Whether SUA is involved in the pathogenesis of T2DM peripheral neuropathy remains to be established.

    Hi Everyone, I was just put on Metformin to hopefully regulate my period and ovulation and get pregnant. They just diagnosed me with PCOS, but said I'm not the normal 90% of women that get PCOS. I'm not overweight, no diabetes, etc. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there that is like me and has experienced success with Metformin and getting pregnant? Thanks!

  2. MinniaJs

    I d like to share a very positive experience with Metformin. I was diagnosed with PCOS after very irregular periods and anovulatory cycles. I already worked out regularly and was a healthy weight. My husband and I tried for a very long time to conceive and were starting to lose hope. I started taking Metformin 1500mg per day. I found it without Rx (my friend share with me this code * METF4PREG *, you can Google it.) The first month, my cycle length was cut in half and the second month, I got pregnant! I never thought the day would come that I would see a positive pregnancy test. I continued the Metformin through my first trimester and we now have a perfect baby boy. Keep your head up and give it a try...I am so thankful that I did!

    humalog quickpen

    So, I am diggin my new quick pen, but am wondering once i get spoiled with it, and feel I can't live without it, how much does it cost if your insurance doesn't cover it? I got it free at the clinic, but I am curious.
    Thanks!

  2. benh

    It varies from pharmacy to pharmacy (call around) and by having insurance, you may be able to get it for a far lower contract price even if your insurance company will not cover it. For reference, I was quotes about $200 for a 5-pack of Lantus pens from an NYC Rite-Aid. I believe this was the BC/BS contract price.
    Among Humalog, Apidra,and NovoLog, your insurance company should cover at least one of them.

  3. User2013

    A lot of the magazines have coupons for Humalog in them for a set of free 5 pens. You can use the coupon twice a year. The coupons are good until the end of the year. I got 10 free pens last year and have the coupon for this years also. All you need to do is take the coupon to your doc and he/she will write the script, take the coupon and script to pharmacy and they will take care of it. Good luck, they are a great pen.
