Mr. Lybrate-user. All you have to do is to manage your obesity. Your weight should be 83 kg. To achieve that you need a weight reducing diet customized according to your needs, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle. All of your complications will be subsided once your weight will be reduced to your ideal one.

Dear lybrate-user, 1) The height of the legs should be such that the blood does not accumulate in the legs, so above chest level. 2) when sleeping, it is preferable that you do not use any bandage, since normal circulation to the rest of the leg should become normal. 3) depends on how large and disfigured the varicose veins are, you can extend the time. It should be done only to reduce the accumulation, but not all the time. 4) bandages is ok when you need to be standing or walking for long hours. At your age, 26, if you are going to be doing all this, it will be difficult for you to enjoy any outing. Please see lasertherapy. Co.in There are options that can help you recover to a great extent from varicose veins. Regards.

Penis Function Problem!

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Penis Function Problem!

A guy who is hitting the bed with a partner doesn't have time to worry about proper penis function - and yet far too many men do have erectile dysfunction issues that impact the pleasure they and their partners enjoy. Certainly excellent penis care can help decrease the chances of erratic penis function, but sometimes much more is needed to help a man perform at the sexual level he desires. Recent years have seen the development of pills with a significant impact on erectile dysfunction, but now there's something new under the sun which some are suggesting as a treatment: shockwaves.

Penis Function Problem? Some Suggest Shockwaves

Although men don't like to talk about erectile dysfunction, it is definitely a big problem. According to the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, 40% of men have experienced erectile dysfunction by the time they are 40 years old. By age 70, more than 70% have.

But what exactly is erectile dysfunction? Simply put, it is an inability to attain and maintain an erect penis such that sexual activity can be satisfactory. This may mean the penis cannot become hard enough to achieve penetration, or it may mean it becomes too soft after penetration.

Although there can be many factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction, it very frequently involves ineffective blood flow to the penis. Either a sufficient amount of blood does not fill up the spongy tissue that causes an erection, or the increased blood flow does not reach the spongy tissue in the first place. In such instances, this means that a man may feel quite sexually aroused, but the mechanics that enable an erection do not respond the way they should.

Shockwaves

So why are some scientists suggesting shockwaves as a means of treating this penis function problem? And what are shockwaves, anyway?

Interestingly enough, despite the name, shockwaves don't really have anything to do with electricity. Instead, shockwaves are acoustic waves, created by sound, which carry energy with them.

Shockwaves are frequently used to treat other conditions, such as kidney stones, cardiac issues or joint inflammation. Low level shockwaves are targeted to a highly specific area, such as a kidney stone. This causes the stone to break up so it can then pass out of the urinary tract.

The idea with using shockwaves to correct penis function is that the acoustic waves cause tiny, microscopic tears in the penile blood vessels. The body responds to this with a process known as neovasculization, which basically means it creates new blood vessels in the afflicted area. By creating new penile blood vessels, unobstructed pathways are opened for the blood to flow into the spongy tissue and let that tissue spring up and do its job.

Experimental

Shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction is still in the experimental stages and has not been approved in the U.S. But many scientists and doctors think it holds great promise. One of the advantages to it is that, unlike pills taken to help achieve an erection, the effects of shockwave therapy should be longer lasting.

Shockwaves may one day be a common treatment for penis function issues. But even if it becomes standard of care, the penis still needs to be kept in premium health, and that goal is more easily achieved when a man regularly uses a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crème will undoubtedly contain L-arginine, an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide, which in turns helps penile blood vessels open and become receptive to increased blood flow. The crème must also contain vitamin B5, aka pantothenic acid. Vitamin B5 is a vital nutrient required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When blood glucose is high, kidneys are not able to retain it. So a large quantity is lost in the urine (Glycosuria). This causes exhaustion and weight loss. So to improve health it is absolutely essential to control; diabetes very effectively with FBG<100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c % <7. This needs appropriate drug treatment. Then restricted diet and regular exercise are also equally important. Following things with regard food have to be kept in mind: 1) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and all foods made out of maida. 2) No aerated sweetened drinks (colas), no foods with sweetcorn syrup content. 3) Should increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day), 4) Use whole grain flour for roti and chapati 5) Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Plus exercise for at least 1 hour a day. If you have any doubts please come back. It is better if you give all details like current FBG, PP & HbA1c%, dietary habits, extent of execise and come in a private conversation then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.

I am 24 years old and daily night not sleeping any distanpance in night any solution.

MBBS
General Physician, Trivandrum
I am 24 years old and daily night not sleeping any distanpance in night any solution.
Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.
