Hello- In healthy men, normal testosterone levels generally range between 300 ng/dL and 1050 ng/dL. Your testosterone is definitely below normal. You should consult your sexologist.

Chronic Gastritis - How to Cope with it?

MBBS, M.S (Gen Surg), M.Ch ( Surgical Gastro)
Gastroenterologist, Hyderabad
Chronic Gastritis - How to Cope with it?

When you have pain in the stomach that is accompanied by nausea and vomiting, chances of you having chronic gastritis are high. This is an issue that specifically affects the stomach and is caused because the lining of the stomach gets inflamed and swollen and in some cases it may get damaged. The deterioration of the lining may be caused because of a bacterial infection and that would have to be treated with specialised medicines and treatment methods. During that time you may feel like there is something wrong with your digestive system and you may need to consult a doctor for the constant pain that you have to go through as soon as you eat something.

Getting help
There may be times when you can no longer cope with the pain that may be occurring in your stomach. You may want to go to sleep or just sit still and do nothing; however, you cannot spend your entire life in that manner and you may have to consult an expert to get relief from the problem. One of the first steps in coping with chronic gastritis is to make sure that you make important lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy, choosing the right timings for eating, cutting down on alcohol and smoking and making sure that you choose a well-qualified and experienced doctor for getting the treatment.

Treatment
Apart from lifestyle changes, it is highly essential to follow a medication routine in order to beat the chronic gastritis completely. Doctors may suggest you take the medication according to the severity of the problem, but before that, you may be asked to go through a number of tests to confirm the problem. The tests may range from regular blood tests, stool tests, to endoscopy or even biopsy in some severe cases. After the testes are done, the doctors may be further sure about the the problem and that would be of great help in treating the issue with much more ease and expertise.

While it may be obvious to you that you suffer from chronic gastritis due to the constant pain in the stomach, it is also important to understand that the problem should not be taken lightly and that the right steps of the treatment should be taken in time before the problem gets worse.

Hi, there is absolutely nothing to get tensed. After novel on if it is a functional cyst of the ovary it will resolve. It may take more than one cycle. Also if you can post your detailed ultrasound report depending on the nature of the cyst I can tell you whether functional or not.

My penis is bent and nerves are coming outside whn erecting and soft and loose penis how can I get strong erection.
Stop worring then only proper erection will come. No negative thoughts otherwise penis will not have ful erection. Bending is possible as penis is muscular structure so may be deviated to some direction. Don't look too much towards you penis and stop finding faults into it. Most time you are unnecessary worry without any problem. This may spoil your fun.

Can you tell me the name of tablet and oil for increasing the size of penis and stamina of mine.

MD - General Medicine

Can you tell me the name of tablet and oil for increasing the size of penis and stamina of mine.
Most man are unsatisfied with their penis size but in vast majority such anxiety is unfounded among men, there is no consistent relationship between the size of the flaccid penis and its full erect length. A penis is only said to be unusually small if it is less than 3 inches (7.6 cm) long when erect. The average penis size is about 14-16 cm (5.5-6.3 inches) when erect. The average girth for an erect penis is 12-13 cm (4.7-5.1 inches). But guys get out ruler's. Just because your member may not fall within those measurement doesn't mean you r not excellent partner. Size matters less than knowing what you r doing and how you r doing. So instead of worrying about size try to learn skills of love making and instead of spending time in worrying about size spend time in gaining knowledge about sex. Dick size, some have smaller ones and some have bigger ones. Work with what you’ve got and remember that fucking comes from your whole body, not just your cock. You are not merely a body with a phallus attached. You are a whole and living and breathing man. Make sure it’s the man that’s having sex. Bring all of you to the stage and you will be rewarded and so will she.

Homeopathy has an effective and promising treatment in pre mature ejaculation. Homeopathic treatment increases the emision and ejaculation time of semen during sexual act. Here are the best ways on how to quit masturbation. Remove all the sources that trigger the urge to perform the act of masturbation such as block the websites which allows access to pornographic content. Some toys which trigger the body sexually to perform masturbation must be removed. Try to avoid staying up until late night. Avoid taking hot showers which may also trigger the urge to perform masturbation. Getting socially active is one of the important factors for controlling and quitting masturbation, as living alone promotes the activity of masturbation especially if a person is heartbroken with his relationship. Getting in a social group fills up the leisure time so that the person can optimally control such thoughts. One of the most important things is to try not to touch the intimate part of the body. To ensure this, spend more time in good company and not alone. If any other friend is also experiencing the issues, then it is always a good idea to quit the relationship or friendship. Masturbation also results due to excessive body stress or tension. Exercising regularly helps in relieving the body stress and tension. It is recommended to increase or double the exercise when a person feels depressed or stressed. Try to make the body to adapt abstinence. Initially try not to perform masturbation for a day, then gradually moves to days then weeks. A homoepath can help in finding if there are some underlying causes that entice you to perform masturbation so regularly. If there is some cause then appropriate treatment can be sought. If you would like to consultme you can click on consult option for homoepathic treatment.

Viral infections are caused by Virii and the fever is acute sudden high rise which generally tapers down in 3 to 4 days if no complications or secondary bacterial infection follows. Typhoid, also known as Enteric Fever or विषम ज्वर is a bacterial infection of intestinal tract initially which may spread in blood and other parts of the body. The fever rises to high level when ulcers in the intestinal tract are formed intermittently and then comes down but not to normal. This continues if proper treatment is not started in time. The ulcers may perforate through the intestinal wall causing serious threat to the life.

My brother-in-law (age 32) was diagnosed with diabetes-2 recently (HbA1C-10 and RBS 500 at the time of diagnosis. Doctor immediately gave insulin and kept him on metformin 850 mg (BDPC) and sitagliptin 100 mg ODPC. He has changed his diet (taking cereals and millets instead of white rice. Now his sugar levels are in control and the doctor advised to continue the dosage for 3 months. Then after the tests he will adjust the dosage accordingly. Since he is taking proper diet, my sister is worried with side effects of medicine and high dosages. Is this dosage too high and dangerous?

Most of the patients whose HB1c is more than 10% with blood sugar in range of 500 mg I always initiate with insulin therapy and continue insulin for 3 months till Hb1c is less than 7% and continue control of sugars with the help of suitable oral tablets. Only in some group of patients where there is chronic infections, hormonal imbalance - kidney or liver malfunction than some times it is safer and better to continue insulin injections for long term .As the awareness regarding proper diet and regular exercise increases and patient tries to incorporate in his daily routine may result in to gradual reduction of insulin and tablet dosages over time.
