Low Sperm Count

Semen analysis is an indispensable part of evaluation of an infertile couple. But the results of semen analysis often creates confusion. It is accepted that if semen analysis report is normal, male factor is usually said to be normal.

Now what, if abnormality is found. Remember, semen abnormality is very common, even in those who are already having children. Because sperm production takes almost 3 months. SO, your current semen analysis reveals your health 3 months ago. If you had fever or any heat exposure to scrotum (may be even tight underwear or hot tub bath) 3 months ago, your today's semen analysis will be abnormal. So, mere abnormality does not draw a conclusion, unless it is severely abnormal.

Now, what we see in semen. There are various parameters. I'm not going into details. But to be simplified, sperm abnormality may be due to two basic reasons. 1) Sperms are not produced by the testes in good quantity (amount) or quality (healthy- motility and looking normal). 2) Sperms are produced normally by the testes but cannot come in semen due to defect in the sperm-carrying pathway (may cause low count, defective sperm and also low motility).

One important thing is to remember, sperm production has nothing to do with manliness. You may feel absolutely normal with normal sex life but sperm production may be defective. SO, first thing is not to feel depressed when the report comes abnormal.

So, whenever we find abnormality, we have to detect the cause. Treatment without detecting thee cause is more likely to FAIL. So, first thing is- whether sperms are produced or not.

Sperm production may be hampered due to diseases in testes- that may present since birth or may be due to some factors occurring later life. These include undescended testes, chromosomal defect, varicocele, diseases in the body (like TB, diabetes, kidney/ liver disease etc), heat exposure to scrotum, smoking, environmental poisons and even some drugs (including alcohol, marijuana, chemotherapy). These are called "TESTICULAR DEFECTS. In some cases, testes are normal but cannot produce sperms because of problems in other glands situated in brain (hypothalamus and pituitary). We call them "PRE-TESTICULAR DEFECTS.

Sperm carrying pathway may sometimes get obstructed due to diseases like infection, operations, some genetic defects. These are called "POST-TESTICULAR or OBSTRUCTIVE DEFECTS.

In most cases of semen defect, treatment is not needed, as we can bypass the normal pathway and use the sperms produced in semen to make your partner pregnant with your own sperm. In severe cases, we can collect sperms from testes and impregnate your wife. In only very few unfortunate men or who cannot afford costly therapy, only option is donor sperm.

In very few cases of TESTICULAR or PRE_TESTICULAR DEFECTS, medicines can help (but in very few cases). In OBSTRUCTIVE CASES, surgery may be needed to correct the defect. But, often we don't need these treatments as the results are not good and take long time to get the results.

So, why to wait and try doubtful treatments, when your prime aim is to father a baby? Just one thing, don't get depressed and talk to doctor, he will find out the cause and give you the best result.

My friend was suffering with thyroid still long time and thyroid was stable,her hips and hips looking very faty can you tell me how can he decreased the fat on hips.

Mr Bharat, First thing is TSH levels must be between 3 to 4 milli units/ ml, then only the treatment is considered effective, or else dose may have to be increased. Unless hypothyroidism is under good control there is no way to reduce over weight. If TSH levels are normal, then exercise and restricted diet can help her to reduce fat. She should join a gym and do exercise under professional instructions.

Yes it is safe. Its non veg sources which increases uric acid due to high purine content, high purine is to be avoided in gout, not high protein which is a misconception widespread even among doctors. But gout remains silent for many years before coming again. Specially if your uric acid remains above 6. Was the first episode really gout? increased uric acid doesn't mean its gout.

Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

Diabetes is a disease which makes a person pay a greater amount of attention to himself or herself and his/her lifestyle habits. In order to fight diabetes successfully, some dos and don’ts really need to be followed. Let’s look at a few of them.

It is very important to make sure that a diabetic patient eats food at regular intervals. The risk of not following this is that the sugar level in the blood will drop, which in turn, will lead to a case of low blood sugar. This condition is known as hypoglycemia. This is especially true when it comes to people who have diabetes and are on heavy medication to keep it under control.

Carbohydrates are part and parcel of a balanced diet. Having said that, it is important to keep an eye on the type of carbohydrates which are being consumed. What this means is that simple carbohydrates should make way in the diet of a diabetic person rather than complex carbohydrates. As such, rice, white pasta and similar items should be replaced in the diet with oats and wheat. This can go a long way in helping you fight diabetes.

Exercise is pretty much the closest thing that has been found to the fabled elixir of life! There are plenty of benefits of doing a little bit of exercise on a consistent and daily basis. From cutting the risk of cancer to preserving the youth of the brain for as long as possible, exercise helps the cause.

Fat loss is yet another recommended way to keep a check on diabetes and exercise is the best way to go about it! When it comes to diabetes, patients are often advised to go for regular walks as it helps our body in using insulin, reduces glucose levels and cuts down on a person’s stress.

So, about an hour of walking, at least five days a week can really go a long way in helping a person who has diabetes.

Smoking is a strict no-no if a person is diagnosed with diabetes, as diabetic patients have higher chances of strokes and heart ailments. Also if you are addicted or habituated in drinking soft drinks, sports drinks or any other beverages which are high in sugar, it’s time to say goodbye to them, once you are diagnosed with diabetes.

The adherence to a strict regimen is great, but the usefulness is lowered if a person has binge days where the plan is not stuck to. While breaks from a diet are required; they should be reasonable and as infrequent as possible.

According to me Thyroid can be one of many reasons to get irregular period... As far as thyroid medication it needs to be continued for life long in most cases.. For scanty periods first you should do is get investigated specifically for USG abdomen. As an alternative treatment homeopathy works best and has permanent solution without any side effects... For that many details required... Consult with proper details...
