Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you move. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain.
Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Strains, sprains and other injuries of joints and around joints.
- Inflammation in and around joints
- CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)
- Ankylosing Spondylitis(A.S.)
- Tendon Sheath Inflammation (Tenosynovitis) etc.
Joint pain is extremely common. In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days.
Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.
For joint pain treatment we can use following techniques:
-Corrective devices if needed (orthotics)
-Manual therapy etc. depending upon the case.
BP and sometimes Sugar etc treatment needs to be changed in Erectile dysfunction and since the patient sees a different doctor for erection problem, it's forgotten.So the patient keeps suffering and the communication gap increases the problems inspite of 4G in communication.Secondly some doctors over correct the BP Sugar etc and sex issues increase.
The electrolytes are so important in Erectile dysfunction and nobody seen paying proper attention to it.Also some vitamins minerals etc not absorbed and patient's patience is lost and he lands in depression by the time he reaches Sexologist like Dr Vaibhav Lunkad,he says.
Then due to depression again whether depression is cause or effect,very few understand.And a new journey from pole to pillar starts.Till then marital or financial or psychosomatic issues increase,no doubt.Now whether it's a marital discord a counselor sees or Erectile dysfunction first to be handled another chaos sets in the patients life.

Deadlines to meet at work, household chores, family responsibilities, you try to manage everything. But what you end up ignoring is – your health. And this has become common for most of the adults these days. When health should be the prime concern, it, in all the hustle bustle of life, takes a backseat.
Not paying attention to our health takes a toll on health. And if any health problem isn’t arrested in time, the condition is bound to get worse. One such health issue very prevalent now-a-days, even among youngsters, is high cholesterol, which is the trigger behind many heart-related ailments, including heart attack.
What leads to high cholesterol?
There are multiple factors that play a role in spiking the cholesterol levels. Some of the prominent ones are:
- Unhealthy diet: Food that we eat has a lot of bad fat (LDL), causing a rise in LDL and triglycerides. This builds up and blocks arteries, raising the risk of heart attack and stroke.
- Hereditary factors: If you have family history of high cholesterol, then maybe it is a reason for you to start worrying. The inherited form of high cholesterol may lead to early blockages or stroke.
- Being over-weight: Obesity or even simply being overweight is another cause of high cholesterol.
- Sedentary lifestyle: People who spend their life sitting or lying the whole day are at a huge risk of high cholesterol.
- Smoking/alcohol consumption: Cigarette smoking plays a significant role in your cholesterol level. It lowers the level of good cholesterol (HDL). Similarly, consuming alcohol regularly can damage liver and heart muscles, which leads to high blood pressure and causes the level of cholesterol in the body to rise.
- Age and gender: The level of cholesterol naturally begins to rise, as you turn 20. Females after menopause can have higher level of cholesterol than men. Hence as, you age maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.
How can you control high cholesterol?
It is very important to not let your cholesterol levels rise in the body. And doing so isn’t difficult. You just have to be cautious about your eating habits and consume food which are heart healthy. Apart from food, exercising is something you must make a routine. And if you smoke or consume too much of alcohol, then you must limit that too.
Also, you can start taking multivitamins that are good for your heart. There are products available in the market like Setu Beat It which can be your savior.
