Mr. Lybrate-user, in this communication I do not see any churna being mentioned. Anyway, as I notice you are having a morbid obesity with bmi of 41.68 kg/m2 (normal <23 kgs). This can be one of the reasons for your problems apart from diabetes itself. If blood sugar levels are not in adequate control, then erectile dysfunction and other related problems do develop. So primary need for you is to have a very strict blood sugar control and work on weight reduction. I do not think any of those chrnas will help. Only strict blood sugar control (fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<6.8), dietary restriction and regular exercise to reduce weight are needed. Or you may have to look at bariatric surgery as an ideal option. Thanks for the question.

Hai. Varicocoel has nothing to do with sexual dysfunction. If your varicocoel is minimal (grade 1), you can ignore it and avoid weight lifting.. For the problem of inability to have intercourse or premature ejaculation, I would recommend counselling and andrology opinion Best wishes.

Soya can eaten in added to curries and 75 - 1 00 gms can be used. The bioavailability of plant protein is low in comparison to animal sources. It's good to have a source of legume in your diet, just don't completely rely on this as your only pro source especially in a bodybuilding diet. Both have their places and none should be traded for the other.
