Diabetes causes loss of libido in the long run. Herbal sex enhancer treatment is supportive but it's advised to take parallel anti-diabetic herbal support in addition to your normal antidiabetic treatment. It will give better effect of 'Stambhak' herbs (which prevents early ejaculation) in sex enhancer formula.

Diabetes - Can It Lead to Nerve Damage?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Diabetes - Can It Lead to Nerve Damage?

Patients with diabetes are likely to suffer from nerve damage. This condition is known as diabetic neuropathy. An increase in the blood-sugar level can damage nerve fibres, especially in the legs and feet. Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication for people suffering from diabetes.

Types of neuropathy

  1. Peripheral neuropathy: This is the most frequently occurring form of diabetic neuropathy. It can affect the legs, feet, hands and arms of a person. Some of the common symptoms include numbness in the leg or arm, cramps, reduced reflexes and muscle weakness. This is accompanied by other problems such as joint pain, ulcers, and deformities.
  2. Autonomic neuropathy: This part of the nervous system controls the intestines, heart, stomach, lungs, eyes and sex organs. Diabetes can wreak havoc in these vital organs. Some of the common symptoms include bladder problems, vomiting, nausea, erectile malfunction, fluctuation in body temperature, decreased or increased sweating, and irregular heart rate.
  3. Radiculoplexus neuropathy: This form of neuropathy affects the nerves in areas such as the thighs, legs, buttocks, etc. This condition is mostly witnessed in people suffering from type 2 diabetes. The symptoms are often observed on one side of the body, which includes abdominal swelling, pain in the thigh, hip and buttock, weight loss, difficulty in getting up from a particular position.
  4. Mononeuropathy: This form of neuropathy attacks a particular nerve and is mostly found in older adults. It doesn’t have any long-term implications. Some of the symptoms include paralysis of the face, pain in the chest, difficulty in focusing the eye, and pain in the foot.

Risk factors of diabetic neuropathy

  1. Being overweight: An increase in body weight increases the chances of diabetic neuropathy. A body mass index (BMI) of greater than 24 is considered to be alarming for a patient suffering with diabetes.
  2. Smoking: Smoking narrows the arteries, thereby reducing the flow of blood to the feet and the legs. This increases the chance of diabetic neuropathy.
  3. Kidney disease: Diabetes can cause great damage to the kidneys, which increases the level of toxins in the body. This situation can aggravate to diabetic neuropathy.
  4. Poor control of blood-sugar levels: A poor control of blood-sugar levels is the biggest risk factor of diabetic neuropathy. Keeping the blood-sugar level under control helps the nerves to maintain a healthy condition.

Common complications of diabetic neuropathy

  1. Digestive problems: Nerve damage can lead to diseases such as diarrhoea, bloating, nausea, vomiting and a loss of appetite. It can also result in a disease called gastroparesis; this is a disease which doesn’t let the stomach empty at its usual rate.
  2. Limb loss: Gradual nerve damage can affect the limbs of the body. Diabetic neuropathy slowly damages the soft tissues and the skin, which eventually results in the loss of a limb. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..

Some patients may also get a sore throat, rash, body aches, headaches, chills, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. There are two types of Diabetes Type 1 and type 2.causes including the followiing:- Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system destroying the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. This is called an autoimmune reaction, or autoimmune cause, because the body is attacking itself. There is no specific diabetes causes, but the following triggers may be involved: Viral or bacterial infection Chemical toxins within food Urinary Incont Breathing difficulties (e.g., sleep apnea, asthma) Unidentified component causing autoimmune reaction Underlying genetic disposition may also be a type 1 diabetes cause. **Type 2 diabetes causes are usually multifactorial - more than one diabetes cause is involved. Often, the most overwhelming factor is a family history of type 2 diabetes. This is the most likely type 2 diabetes cause. There are a variety of risk factors for type 2 diabetes, any or all of which increase the chances of developing the condition. These include: Obesity Living a sedentary lifestyle Increasing age Bad diet

Take 3 main meals and 2 side meals. Avoid fried foods, sweets, carbonated drinks and processed foods. Sleep for 7-9 hours per night. Don't skip breakfast. Avoid mango, banana, cheeku, zimikand and arbi. Also avoid raw and cooked broccoli, cauliflower and soya and soya products. Take chamomile tea before going to bed.

Some Relax during work.go walk daily.avoid oily foods,junk foods. Do Tests T3,T4,TSH EVERY 3 TO 6 MONTHS. Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly.

Mr. lybrate-user, By now you must be aware about the condition, diabetes insipidus. It is a hormone (ADH) deficiency disorder. Since there is no hormone being produced by hypothalamus, it has to be daily supplemented and that too for lifetime. There is no other option. Thanks.

I had detected hyper thyroid in Aug 2015, t3-300 and tsh was 0.01. I was suggested to take neomercozile 20 mg for 30 days and then increase dose to 30 mg for next 30 days and 40 mg for 1 year. After 30 days I felt some changes so I did checkup and found that t3, t4 within range but tsh -32, someone suggested to stop pills immediately and I did the same. Few months back I again checked, tsh came down to 5.5, but last month its 8.5. What to do?

I think you were having thyroiditis when you were checked initially. During the thyroid damage & inflammation, a lot of thyroid hormone is released at once into the body. So, the reports suggest hyperthyroidism and so, you were treated with the correct medicine. But, I would have followed up with thyroid tests every 2 months because once, thyroiditis resolves and thyroid gland is damaged as a result, patient goes into hypothyroidism which is what your reports are suggesting after you stopped the medications. For TSH level of 8.5, if you do not have any symptoms, you need not take medications. It is called SUBCLINICAL HYPOTHYROIDISM. Repeat the tests every 3 months and if TSH level is still rising, then consult a physician or a medical endocrinologist for appropriate treatment and advise.

Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between

Your fbs is quite normal. The slightly high ppbs could be because of various reasons. Some of the common ones are: 1) the food you eat; both quality & quantity matter 2) over how much time you have it 3) what you have along with it 4) exercise 5) time of taking meds try to find out which of these matter to you & the solution becomes easier.
