My mother has sugar for that she is getting sweat when she is working how to avoid this problem?
I would like to know how weel is the blood sugar control? what are current fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%? plus weight & height of the patient. There are many reasons for sweating like being over weight, being anemic or nearing menopause. Hence please send me all the details then I can suggest some remedy. However, proper sugar control is a primary need.

I am 62 yrs old ex. Army officer. Sometime my sugar label goes high but it comes down with in a week after doing physical exercise and half an hour walk. I am very busy and not sparing time for walk and exercise. Normally I am taking sweets also. Since 10 days now I have sugar label high as 230/280 not getting down. I am taking metformin 500 tab 2x2x2 per day. What to do ?

General Physician,
Your sugar level is dangerously controlled. Cut down on sugar and carb and exercise is must. You can do some exercises at home, right? ask privately diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar is well controlled, you can take it for a considerably long time. However, a periodic check up of blood sugar is always needed. To achiev good control fasting should be close to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c<7.%. Thanks for the question.

I am a 22 years old female and am suffering from hyperthyroidism. My medication is as follows: Neomarcazol 10 -after breakfast and dinner Ciplar 10 -after breakfast and dinner Zincovit after lunch I want to switch to ayurvedic treatment please help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Hyperthyroidism is a hormonal disorder, occurring due to excess activity of thyroid gland. Only treatment for this is taking anti - thyroid drugs (Neomercazole), plus betablockers to reduce palpitations. There is no Ayurvedic treatment. If you still want to go for it then choice is yours. Thanks.

I am a thyroid patient from 1998 and daily I am taking Thyronorm 100mcg tablets. I check periodically T3, T4, & TSH levels. But recently upon the advice of a Physician at Dilsukhnagar I am checking my TSH levels only during the past 3 years. Now my TSH come down to less than 0.01. I want to consult an Endocrinologist immediately. I want to know whether I have to see the doctor with the 3 reports or only TSH is enough.

I have been suffering from thyroid since last two years. And I have no baby. I am taking treatment regularly but I am not getting well. I want to know that how can I get well soon? And how can I get a baby?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-use, if some one has hypothyroidism and is on treatment then tsh levels have to come down to around 3 to 4 milli units/ml. Plus if a lady wants to be prgnant then tsh levels have to be brought much lower like 0.2 to 2 milli units/ ml even before getting conception and all through the pregnancy. Otherwise first the conception will not occur, or retained or will not develop well. So bringing tsh levels lower is very important.

Infertility - Can Sexual Problems be the Cause Behind it?

MD, BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Infertility - Can Sexual Problems be the Cause Behind it?

A couple becomes a family when they become parents. And, a lot of people want to enjoy the experience being parents. But sometimes, sexual problems can lead to bigger problems, like infertility.

The state of childlessness can be the result of sexual problems. Sometimes couples who go for fertility treatments do not realise that previously existing sexual dysfunctions can be the cause of infertility. Before spending a lot of time on expansive and expensive treatments, it is important to discern if the couple are having problems with their sex lives, with special preference to frequency and timing of coitus.

Two further categories of sexual dysfunctions need to be considered. One is premature ejaculation (PE) in which, the semen is ejected soon after sexual activity and with minimal penile stimulation. The second point is to consider whether the sperm is being introduced to the vagina. This is a personal examination of the couple’s method of having sex.

Sexual problems related to infertility in men are loss of desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and retarded ejaculation and in women are loss of desire, vaginismus, dyspareunia and anorgasmia. All these dysfunctions can be solved with the help of an expert. Thus, it is important to go for thorough consultation before going for fertility treatments. 

Adequate sexual function can contribute to the success of fertility treatments, but at the same time it also leads to much stress and discord among couples as the pressure of procreation might get too much. This can have harmful repercussions, affecting the entire fertility treatment. The pressure of planned sex, to perform on demand and anxiety also harms fertility. 

Talking about sex and focusing on your relationship as a couple helps in the long run.
