There’s no better method to strengthen the pelvic region than to create a strong pubococcygeus muscle (PC muscle), which can help control ejaculation. The easiest way for you to find this muscle is to see if you can stop the flow of urine when you go to the bathroom. It’s the PC muscle that you use to do that. Once you finds it, you need to practice feeling exactly where it is located and make sure you engages it, rather than using your abdominals, buttocks, or thighs. (These must all stay loose when doing Kegel exercises.) To do Kegels, you will quickly clench and release the PC muscle repeatedly for ten seconds. He should do three sets, with a ten-second break between sets. If you contracts your PC muscle when you are close to orgasm, you should be able to slow things down.

Dear lybrateuser, -if you exert or do some exercise your heart rate normally increases & comes down to normal after sometime as you rest -if your heartrate is fast even at rest then you may have anxiety or nervousness, for this do deep breathing daily morning for 10-15 min, do yogasan, do brisk walking or jogging &then take rest -get blood checkup for anemia, thyroid.

I am having Type 2 diabetes from the last one year. Sugar consumption is prohibited in diabetic people. Is consumption of jaggery (gud) also prohibited? Fruits also contains sugar. So are fruits also not to be consumed by diabetic people? My feet are getting black patches. Is it because of diabetes?

Mr. lybrate-user, Sugar and jaggery are both made form cane sugar juice. So there is hardly any difference between those two. Jaggeruy is supposed to contain some more minerals and vitamins. But both are sucrose, which is immediately converted to glucose in the body increasing the blood glucose almost instantly. Various types of food that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, sweet potato, corn and many other food stuffs all contain starch, this is ultimately converted to glucose in the intestine. However, it takes over 3 to 4 hours for this process to be completed. So the blood glucose rise is comparatively slow. Even with most fruits the main sugar is fructose, it is different from glucose. Certain fruits are high in sugar like banana, mango, grapes & chikkoo. Those should be eaten very occasionally or just a small piece. Thanks.

Have you ever felt pain in your great toe or may be ankle/foot/knee/heel/wrist/elbow which was intially in one joint and over the time involved other joints too. Then you might be having increased uric acid levels. Diet is important in such patients. Consume food less in purine content like cornflakes, white bread, pasta, flour, milk and its products, eggs, lettuce, tomatoes, green veggies and fruit juices. Strict no to all high purine foods like meats, seafood, beas, peas, lentils, spinach, cauliflower, mushrooms, beer and other alcoholic beverages.

Reduce the risk of diabetes

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, BSc Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist

India is diabetic capital in the world. It is no more hereditary and anybody can gat it if one is not making conscious efforts.

Reduce the risk of diabetes by not burdening your pancreas and improving your blood sugar control by taking more fibre.
Lower the risk of heart disease
Promote weight loss by taking more protein, less carbs, less fats, and helping you feel full by fibre rich foods.
Foods high in fiber include sprouts, fruits & vegetables with skin, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Basically whenever you eat chocolate or sweet (for food cravings or sweet tooth people), just make sure you eat a cucumber also, so that fibre in cucumber or any raw veg will bind the excess sugar & fat from the diet thus will not allow your blood sugar to rise.

The people with diabetes also can apply this tip to control their blood sugar.

Inflammation means a process of increased circulation locally with cellular proliferation due to some cause. The cervix from where the pap smear has been taken is showing this process. There is no mention of cellular anaplasia or hyperchromatic nuclei in your question which for the time being means there is no evidence of cancerous process in the cervix of uterus.

It will only be fungal infection. First priority is keeping the area clean and dry. so dry the area after bath and after visiting bathroom. you need to use antifungal and antihistamine medicies. as some doctors have seen and advised medication, if you can let us know what have you used and the areas affected we may be able to guide you properly. good luck.
