Pain & itch in left side of throat difficulty in swallowing checked by myself its white colour mark inside.
This is due to the drymouth and this is becoz of lack of hydration of the mouth, this can be replenished with good fresh fruits, shakes, banana, milk products, raisins and other iron rich diet.

Causes and Role of Counselling in Treating Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD
Diabetologist, Mumbai
Causes and Role of Counselling in Treating Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

Diabetic men usually are prone to suffering from erectile dysfunction, i.e., they are unable to maintain an erection while having sex. If you are suffering from diabetes for a long time, your nerves and blood vessel might get damaged. That will cause you to suffer from erectile dysfunction. Almost 35% to 75% diabetic men suffer from erectile dysfunction. This situation becomes more serious with age.

Causes: It involves various factors like impairment in the nerves, blood vessels, and also cause problems in proper muscle functioning. You need healthy blood vessels, nerves, as well as healthy male hormones and sexual desire to get an erection. Diabetes damages the nerves and blood vessels responsible for an erection. So even if you have the required amount of hormones and the desire, you might not be able to get a proper erection.

Treatment: If you are suffering from diabetes, and have a condition of erectile dysfunction, then the most common treatment for you is Sildenafil. Other medications, which you can take are tadalafil, avanafil, and vardenafil. But keep in mind that if you have any heart problems, then you should refrain from taking any of these medicines as they will further complicate situations for you. Consult your doctor in this case to know which will be the best treatment for you to cure erectile dysfunction. Other treatment methods are as follows:

  1. Intracavernous injection therapy
  2. Vacuum erection devices
  3. Venous constriction device
  4. Intraurethral therapy
  5. Penile prostheses

The dosage of these medicines depends upon weight of the patient as well as presence or absence of other co-morbid conditions like hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiac problems, kidney/liver diseases, etc. Prescription of these medicines also depends on the other medications that the patient is taking as these ED medicines have a lot of adverse drug-interactions. Hence, one must always consult a doctor before starting these medications.

The Role of Counselling for Treating Erectile Dysfunction:

Erectile dysfunction can be caused by psychological factors and once a man experiences erectile dysfunction it can have a major impact on their emotional well-being. A man may feel a loss of manhood, a loss of confidence, low self-esteem, angry and depressed and it may also affect his relationship or sexual encounters. Therefore, counselling is a crucial part of treatment in order to address these issues.
Does psychosexual counselling work?

Psychosexual counselling is most effective when a man's sexual partner is willing to be part of the treatment. Studies have shown that for men with stress-related ED, when the partner is involved in the therapy, the problem is resolved 50%-70% of the time. When the man must go through counselling alone, the results are less successful.

Psychosexual counselling is unlikely to work if a man drops out of treatment after just one or two sessions.

Sometimes, several sessions of psychosexual counselling can be helpful if a man is due to receive medical or surgical treatment for ED. A counsellor can help guide a couple towards agreeing on treatment, or help them improve their sexual communication and lovemaking skills. A man may benefit from counselling on his own regarding how to talk to his partner about penile injections or a vacuum constriction device, which are both treatments for ED. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Diabetes - Can It Be Cured With Ayurvedic Medicine?

Diabetes - Can It Be Cured With Ayurvedic Medicine?

Diabetes is a condition that cannot be completely cured. It can be regulated and brought under control. Once you maintain your usual level of diabetes within the prescribed normal amount, you can be referred to be as non-diabetic. Surging levels of diabetes over a long span of time might negatively affect some organs in your body and also deteriorate your immune powers. Here is where the role of Ayurvedic medicines becomes imperative. One of the most potent and competitive ways of to deal with diabetes and bring it under control, while deleting the chances of any side effects is with the use of Ayurvedic medicines and therapy.

Symptoms of Diabetes:
There is a long list of common symptoms related to diabetes. Some of the most common symptoms out of the lot are-

  1. Disproportionate and varied levels of thirst,
  2. Frequent and uncontrollable urge for urination,
  3. Sudden hunger sprang,
  4. Sudden weight loss for some,
  5. Sudden weight loss for some,
  6. Thinning hands and legs,
  7. A constant feeling of irritation,
  8. An increased level of fatigue,
  9. Blurring vision,
  10. Itchy and spotty skin,
  11. Slow healing of scratches and cuts,
  12. Increased chances of infection,
  13. Swollen gums, loosening teeth, pulling of gums away from the teeth,
  14. Deterioration in sexual activities amongst men,
  15. Tingling sensations and numbness in your hind and fore limbs, etc.

These symptoms only keep on increasing, till the time they start affecting serious organs of your body. This can be protected by a visit to Ayurvedic doctors in the initial days of detection of the disease.

How to Detect Diabetes?
Diabetes can be detected with the help of a blood test or urine test. Both these tests are competent enough to detect the level of sugar in your blood and also whether it is controlled or not. Visiting a doctor can also help you to put your finger on the fact, whether the symptoms you are facing are related to diabetes or not.

When Should You Consult a Specialist?
You should visit a doctor as soon as you notice a couple of symptoms of diabetes mentioned above or for that matter have had your monthly medical tests done, and they show an uncontrolled level of glucose in your blood. Consulting a doctor will lead to a proper diagnosis of the condition and the prescription of best Ayurvedic medicines and treatments for speedy recovery.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Diabetes:
Though diabetes can be regarded to as a modern ailment, Ayurveda has surfaced as one of the best cures for the condition. The aim of Ayurveda is to control the level of glucose in the blood, with the use of all natural medication, which poses no additional harm or side effects to the patients. Some of the best Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes are-

  1. Coccinia Indica,
  2. Neem or Azadirachta Indica,
  3. Mulberry or Morus Indica,
  4. Bitte Gourd or Momordica Charantia,
  5. Eugenic Jambolana,
  6. Fenugreek or Trigonella Foenum, etc.

While these Ayurvedic medicines might not cure the condition 100% but they control the level of glucose to a level where a patient becomes almost normal.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Mai janna chata hu ke period ke kitne din bad bina precaution liye sex karne se pregnant nehi hote. Please advise.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
The most fertile time of a cycle is midcycle if a woman has regular 28-30 days cycles. However breakthrough ovulation can occur hence sex at any time of the cycle is not 100% safe in preventing an unwanted pregnancy.

15 days before I had sex that was unsafe sex I was not use any protection during sex. But now I am varied about hiv. How should I know I am affected from hiv or not? Is there any common symptoms? When should I do hiv test for more prominent result? That women said she have not hiv +ve but my fear was steel remain. please guide me.

MBBS, MD - NEUROPSYCHIATRY
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
In case of known hiv, the protocol is to start prophylactic anti hiv medicine at the earliest. Since the lady is not a known hiv, you need to wait for 3 months to do the test. You should repeat the test after 6 and 9 months. If all three tests are negative you have no hiv. That is why it is important to practise safe sex.
