A tsh of 9.38 is high and will make you feel pretty ill but I wouldn't say it is dangerously high so don't worry about it too much there are people who are diagnosed when their tsh is 100 and I've even seen someone post with a tsh of 240. You will be able to lose the weight again once your treatment is optimal but it will be hard work like any diet and exercise routine is. You will have to find a diet that works for you as everyone is different and you may find that the diet that worked in the past doesn't anylonger. Ayurved panchkarm treatment also helpful to reduce loose weight. Arogyavardhini vati -medohar gugglu - dashmool kwath - kanchnar gugglu also helpful.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The tablets mentioned are for increasing sperm count and quality. But these kind of drugs are more empirical. There is no hard clinical evidence to suggest that these drugs produce a definite benefit. Have got your sperms tested for number and quality? If not then better to get it done. Thanks.

Old-age diabetes and poor nutrition and lying on bed for long time are causes of bedsores in your father If there is excess dead tissue in the bedsores area it has to be removed which is called debridement. Healing may or may not occur. Chance of healing will be better if he is moved or able to move around, receive good food and sugars kept under control. Other wise despite surgery the bedsores will remain and take a very long time and most often develop infections. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 6.5 mU/L is higher than the normal range. But it falls in the subclinical category. There is no treatment advocated for it. Treatment is given only after TSH crosses 10 mU/L or at lower level if the patient has any troublesome symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Being a hormone deficiency state, there is no cure for this condition. You will have to check TSH levels once in six months or so. Thanks. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to see that both BP and blood glucose are fairly well controlled. Increase in microalbuminuria and creatinine suggests that kidney are getting affected mostly due to diabetes. One of the group of drugs recommended for hypertension with diabetes is ACE-Inhibitors like Lisinopril, Enalepri or ARBs like Losartan, Telmisartan or Olmesartan etc. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that blood glucose is well controlled and does not go up even after eating "2 doodh pedha" It wolud be better if you check HbA1c% and see if it is <5.9% then one can say you have no diabetes now. Whether you should stop medication is a difficult question to answer. My suggestion is maintain your healthy lifestyle, including diet and regular exercise, then stop the medication for about 2 weeks and check the blood glucose levels. If levels remain within normal limit then probably one might conclude there is no diabetes. Do try and come back after wards. Thanks.

Hello- Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes. Left untreated, it can erode the quality of life for you and your sexual partner. Sexual problems can increase your level of stress, trigger depression and even make you less likely to manage your diabetes effectively. To combat diabetes and impotence, you need to first control your blood sugar through proper dieting. Avoid tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption, as these conditions can cause other forms of impotence. In addition, supplement your diet with herbs that treat the underlying condition. Taking natural formulas with these herbs to boost up testosterone can be of tremendous benefit for men with type II diabetes.

Red Penis Query: Does Diabetes Cause Balanitis?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Red Penis Query: Does Diabetes Cause Balanitis?

Although there are many causes of a red penis - including totally benign ones such as too much friction - when the red penis presents with balanitis, a man needs to take some appropriate penis health steps. Balanitis is a common issue for some men - and it may be more common for men who have diabetes.

Balanitis

What exactly is balanitis? It is defined as a condition in which the penis becomes inflamed, usually on the glans (or "head") of the penis. The name is derived from a Greek word which means acorn, a reference to the vaguely acorn shape of the glans. Any man can have balanitis, but it tends to be more prevalent in men who are intact.

Although the exact number of men who have or have had balanitis is unknown, studies indicate that between 3% and 11% of men in the United States have experienced it. Children and adolescents tend to be more susceptible to balanitis, but many adult men deal with it as well.

What causes it?

Balanitis is an inflammation, which means that some sort of infection - usually bacterial or yeast-based - is present. This is more likely to occur due to improper hygiene; a man does not clean sufficiently in the area and an infection develops. It can sometimes be difficult to clean beneath the foreskin, which is why balanitis may be more likely to occur in an intact man.

In other cases, using too strong a cleanser can be the inciting cause of balanitis. A soap with very harsh chemicals or fragrances may irritate the skin, bringing about the inflammation.

Diabetes

But diabetes can also be a contributing factor to the development of balanitis. Some sources even suggest that diabetes is the main cause of balanitis in adult males. Since diabetes is an increasingly common issue, especially as men get older, it is important to understand the connection between diabetes and balanitis.

As most people know, diabetes is a condition in which the body is unable to properly regulate the amount of sugar in the blood (also called the glucose level). Blood sugar is the key to a person's energy level and plays a big role in developing and maintaining muscles and tissues. When those levels are too low or too high, it can cause significant problems.

What does diabetes have to do with balanitis? It usually occurs when blood sugar levels are too high. Some of that excess sugar gets into the urine. When a man urinates, some residue often remains on the glans or slips down beneath the foreskin. If the urine is full of sugar, the drops that get waylaid on the penis will deposit that sugar when the urine evaporates. The presence of that sugar causes the inflammation, and a red penis results.

A man with diabetes needs to follow his prescribed course of treatment to properly monitor and maintain his blood glucose levels. He also needs to take appropriate steps to insure that his penis - especially the glans and foreskin - is kept well-washed and free of bacteria or other contaminants.

A healthy habit

A man with diabetes who wants to avoid balanitis and the resulting red penis should maintain his penis health by regular use of a first-rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The itchiness and rashiness associated with balanitis respond well to a crème that has potent moisturizers, including Shea butter and vitamin E. Balanitis may also contribute to penis odor issues, so a crème with vitamin A is recommended; the antibacterial properties of this vitamin go a long way toward suppressing unwanted stench emanating from the penis. Whether a man has diabetes or not, use of a penis health crème is advised.

Diabetes And Oral Health Care!

If you are a diabetic patient and your blood glucose levels are poorly controlled, you are more likely to develop serious gum disease and lose more teeth than non-diabetics. Like all other infections, serious gum diseases may contribute towards rise in blood sugar and may make diabetes harder to control.
Other oral problems associated with diabetes include - candidiasis (thrush), and dry mouth which can cause soreness of mouth, oral ulcers, various infections, teeth cavities and bad breath.

Prevention
First of all, control your blood glucose level by exercise, diet, oral medicines or insulin. Then, take good care of your teeth and gums, along with regular checkups every six months. To control candidiasis, use candid mouth paint and maintain good diabetic control, avoid smoking and, if you wear dentures, remove and clean dentures daily. Good blood glucose control can also help prevent or relieve dry mouth caused by diabetes. Use chlorhexidine mouthwash for 15 days and continue with diluted listerine mouthwash for months. It will prevent bad breath problem.

My TSH levels are significantly higher suggesting hyperthyroidism. Please suggest medication and also suggest if any exercise can also help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. High TSH (actual value is not mentioned, which is important to know), means you have hypothyroidism. Treatment can only be decided on seeing the actual values of T3, T3 & TSH. Plus your height and weight. Because without all those details dose of the medication can not be decided. It is better if you come in a private conversation then I will be able to prescribe the medication. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thaks for the query. It is good to know that blood glucose level is well in control. As regards numbness and heaviness in right hand, it could be due to (peripheral neuropathy, which does develop once diabetes goes on for a long period (over months to years). This happens even when glucose control is very good. I am sure you are aware good control means maintaining FBG < 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8 Most important is to achieve very strict glucose control plus certain medications like methylcobalamine, and some combinations are useful. Plus gabapentine or pragabalin could be used. As regards BP 150/90 mm Hg, is high needs some antihypertensive.In this commiunication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. That can be done only in private conversation. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user. If this problem has recently developed than you may need to consider your doctor's advise. Surgery for this problem is a very simple and short one. If your doctor has tried medications and it's not working or he feels that surgery is the only option. Than you must consider. As it is in diabetic patients infections can be problematic.
