I have been vigorously masturbating to porn for about 8 years with a frequency of about 6-7 times a week. My penis now hardly gets erections, which was initially 6 inches is now only 3.5-4 inches when fully erect. I also have ED and PE. I have reduced the frequency to once in two weeks. Please suggest any remedy to get back my lost sexual zeal, strength and ability. Please help. ( I am 25 Yr old male, height 5'7" with no history of other diseases.)

Diabetic Nephropathy - Know Its Symptoms + Management

Diabetic Nephropathy - Know Its Symptoms + Management

Diabetes is not an isolated disease but a syndrome. It brings with it a host of issues, affecting almost all organs, and that is the reason it is a dreaded issue. Diabetes is the result of chronic inflammation and this inflammation gradually spreads to all other organs. One of the main organs adversely affected is the kidneys. The kidneys are essential filtration agents, and impaired kidney function can have a series of bad effects on the body.

The good news is that not everybody with diabetes will have diabetic nephropathy. However, risk factors for developing diabetic nephropathy are:

  1. Severe, uncontrolled diabetes
  2. Family history
  3. Prior kidney disease, even chronic infection
  4. Race or ethnicity (native Americans, African Americans, etc.)
  5. Preexisting hypertension or high cholesterol levels
  6. Obesity

If you have these risk factors, then all efforts should be aimed at keeping blood sugar at highly optimal level. Once it reaches beyond a certain level, it is very difficult to get it under control.

Symptoms

There would be no symptoms in the initial stages

  1. If you suspect that increased sugar levels could be damaging the kidneys, it is imperative to do renal functions annually to test for onset of kidney malfunction
  2. There could be swelling of the feet and ankles
  3. Urine tests may indicate increased levels of protein in the body (serum albumin in particular)

Management

The idea is to arrest or stop damage to the kidneys.

  1. Reduce and maintain blood pressure within the recommended levels. This will depend on the age and overall health status. Using angiotensin converting enzymes or angiotensin receptor blockers is the most effective way to control hypertension and related kidney damage
  2. Keeping blood sugar within the recommended levels helps reduce or stop damage to the blood vessels in the kidneys and thereby, prevent progression
  3. Maintain optimal levels of cholesterol, as this only adds to hypertension, which further worsens kidney function.
  4. Eat a heart-healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is a vicious cycle with components including hypertension, high sugar levels, increased heart disease, which all only continues in a circle nonstop. Breaking this cyclical trend is very important.
  5. Diet should not be too rich in protein, as the kidney function is impaired and may not be able to handle too much protein. Talk to a nutritionist as to how much protein is required and follow it strictly.
  6. Reduce salt levels in the diet, and strictly do not add extra salt onto your plate
  7. If you are a smoker, this is a great reason to quit, as it affects all the above conditions.
  8. Maintain weight under optimal levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

smoking heavily causes the deposition of nicotine layer in the alveolar sacs of lungs say if you smoking forv20 yes there will be 1to 2 mm of thickness of lung alveoli so it is a silent killer and predisposition factor T or lung cancer it is high time you should leave smoking completely. I know a bit difficult but it isva must.to save from cancer.in this regard you can consult a medical preferably chest specialists.

Sir I have piles problem since only 15 days. I seem it is starting problem. In this one or two drops of blood come out with a little pain. Can it be cured permanently by allopathic or homeopathic? If I can be then please tell me medicines for it please.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you should take the following medications as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic sulphur 200 once in a week. 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic aesculus hip 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic podophyllum 30 before going to bath daily. 4) 5 drops of homoeopathic hamamelis 30, just one hour before dinner daily. If you experience bleeding during stool then you need to carry on the following home-therapy:- i) pour about 50ml of liquid betadine in a tub of lukewarm water & stir it until it is mixed. Ii) sit inside that tub of lukewarm water in a squatting position so that the betadine mixed water can come in contact with the point of bleeding. Iii) maintain this position for at least 30 minutes daily. Follow the aforesaid rules & continue the aforesaid medication for one month.

Wait for few more months. As you said you are under homeopathy treatment. For attaining proper and regular periods. There has to be balanced hormones. Which takes time to attain. During the course of treatment .step by step. Month by month you will find prognosis. Which ensures proper and regular periods. Once your periods are normal and proper hormonal balance ensures. Reduction in hairfallllllll. And proper skin tone.

Masturbation is different from live sex. Don't compare duration in both. It's normal to happen in one minute. It's not related to chest pain while masturbating. Also masturbation doesnot affect your sex life. Kindly remove all that myth from you.
