This is also know as erectile dysfunction.

The disorder may cause marked distress or interpersonal difficulty. There are different patterns. Some individuals report inability to obtain erection from the beginning of sexual experience ;while others report being able to experience erection only during masturbation or on awakening, but not during the coitus. Some experience adequate erection,lose it when attempting penetration. Still other report that have an erection that is sufficiently firm for penetration, but they lose erection before or during thrusting.

Male erectile disorder is frequently associated with anxiety, fear of failure, pressure of sexual performance, and decreased sexual excitement and pleasure. This can disrupt marital relationship and may be the cause of unconsummated marriage and infertility.

Diagnostic tests

Stamp Test :A long strip of postal stamps in wound around the base of the penis at night before going to bed. Next morning if the perforations of the strip are found to be torn off, impotence is supposed to be of psychological in origin.

Peno-brachial index : The ratio of penile systolic blood pressure to that of brachial systolic blood pressure is normally 0.6. If found to be low, impotence is vascular in origin .

Papaverine Injection Test : Papaverine is a vasoactive drug. Using a 26 gauge needle, 30 mg papaverine is injected at the mid-shift of Corpus cavernosum of the penis. He is isolated, asked to stoke the penis and expose to erotic literature. An erection will occur in 10 to 15 minutes. If the erection is short-lived or partial, then impotence is considered as vasculogenic. If the erection is full, then impotence is considered to be neurogenic or psychogenic. In origin.

Caution : This test should be performed in a hospital setting or where the facilities for detumescence are available. The patient should be observed for next few hours till the erection subsides.

Rigiscan Test :

This is a gold standard for evaluation of Nocturnal Penile Tumescence and Rigidity (NPTR). This test is based on the physiological principle that a male gets erection 3 to 5 times during REM sleep. At night before going to sleep one ring of Rigiscan is slid over the base of the penis and the over the tip. Next morning, the tracing obtained are studied. This test can quantify erectile tumescence and rigidity. Rigiscan tracing indicates whether the impotence is organic or psychological in origin.

Arterial insufficiency and venous leaks can also be suspected on the basis of Rigiscan graphs. Patients with purely artery disease have low levels of rigidity but of adequate duration. Patients with venous leak will have varying rigidity levels with shortened duration.

Penile Ultrasound :

This test is for evaluation of the functioning of the penile arteries. A simple acoustic Doppler emits auditory signals or a colour Doppler can help visualization of arteries. Cavernosometry and caver nosography: this haemodynamic test is useful for diagnosing venous-occlusive dysfunction of the corpora. Biothesiometry, electromyography , nerve conduction studies: these are for evaluation of neurogenic impotence.

Treatment

Counseling

Sexual dysfunction is a marital unit problem and therefore both, husband and wife, should attend. Counselling is towards strengthening the marital relationship. Wife is requested to co-operate. The client is requested to quit smoking and alcohol. He is advised relaxation exercise, yoga. The couple is educated about anatomy, physiology of sexual organs sexuality are countered. Their myths and misconceptions about sexuality are countered. They are also explained that he does not have to do anything to have an erection. Erection is a physiological response to effective stimuli.

Dear lybrate-user the stage you are in right now is little bit high. Good thing is you have started to walk, now keep doing it regularly. Secondly avoid eating out, avoid sugar, avoid oily stuff, use pure cooking oil nd never use refined or double refined oil. If you can eat methi ka dana regularly for 3 months without a break your sugar will come to normal. Just soak 1 tea spoon methi ka dana in water overnight and drink that water in morning and chew the methi ka dana.

It seems you have perforated ear drum. It should be treated by tympanoplasty operation. Ear drops are only temporary treatment to be used for a brief period only when there is ear discharge.

I suffering from asthma. From childhood. I'm now 24 years old .how I clear asthma from root.

BHMS, Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Medicine
Homeopath,
I suffering from asthma. From childhood. I'm now 24 years old .how I clear asthma from root.
A respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity Description To understand asthma, it helps to know how the airways work. The airways are tubes that carry air into and out of your lungs. People who have asthma have inflamed airways. The inflammation makes the airways swollen and very sensitive. The airways tend to react strongly to certain inhaled substances. When the airways react, the muscles around them tighten. This narrows the airways, causing less air to flow into the lungs. The swelling also can worsen, making the airways even narrower. Cells in the airways might make more mucus than usual. Mucus is a sticky, thick liquid that can further narrow the airways. This chain reaction can result in asthma symptoms. Symptoms can happen each time the airways are inflamed. Cause • Allergy • Tobacco Smoke • Environmental Factor • Obesity • Pregnancy • Stress • Genes • Airway Hyperactivity • Atopy Allopathic and Homoeopathic Treatment o Most people need to take more than one type of medication to control asthma. O Not everyone with asthma takes the same Homoeopathic medication. There are many different asthma medications and they come in many forms: pills. O Allopathic medications are often divided into two groups: bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory agents. O There's no allopathic medication to cure asthma completely. Asthma medications are used to stop, control and prevent asthma symptoms. O Within three month of Homoeopathic treatment Asthma is permanently curable. Cost of Treatment Direct Cost Indirect cost Intangible Cost Cost of Doctor Loss of productive work by patient Grief Cost of Hospital Treatment Loss of productive work by patient family Fear Cost of Drug Early retirement from work Pain Cost of Investigation Unhappiness Cost of Equipment’s Loss of Quality of life Examination Origin, Development and Progress of Disease is Important as this leads to the choice of Homoeopathic remedy. During Homoeopathic Treatment patient should observe and report symptoms. No Specific examination is required as character of complaint is treated. Blood Test Required? Yes we refer to previous Blood Investigation. Treatment Steps To confirm a session, please leave a message. We will synchronise timings and request a case taking session. How long patient will take Homoeopathic Drugs? 1 Month Is Homoeopathic Cure Permanent? Yes How many drugs are the required to start Treatment? How can I get the drug? Homoeopathic Medicine are easily available at nearest drug stores, 4-5 Drugs are required which will cost less than 6-7$. Is cure Permanent? What Diet modification required? Homoeopathic Cure is permanent and patient need to be careful in Diet regime and should quit Smocking Habit.

DAA, DNB

Hi. If a person is having asthma and is on regular inhalers, she needs to be assessed with a pulmonary function test / pft to assess the severity of the disease and her asthma can definitely be controlled so that she is symptom free with regular follow up with a pulmonologist.
