I have type 2 diabetes. My fasting is regulating as 250 approx. what should i do ?
Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting 250 mg us very high, signifies there is uncontrolled diabetes. You need to be on appropriate drug treatment either oral or insulin injection, when in control fastin should be 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Plus you have to take restricted diet and do daily one hous exercise.

Being diabetic and 300 tgl its ok to eat beef. Pz gv some home remedy for iron deficiency.
lybrate-userji, If blood glucose is at 300 mg (fasting or PP not mentioned) means it is too high. First that has to be controlled. One has to look at overall diet, weight and height before any suggestion can be made. However, a small piece of beef may not bad. Most important is total dietary intake and weight control. Thanks.

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.

Mr narasimham, I am sure you must learnt by now, that diabetes is a disease that remains with us for life time. It can only be controlled by proper drugs, restricted diet and exercise. There is no other way at least for now world over. So please continue your treatment regularly, that is the only option.

Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. .consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

Hba1c% 8.7, means diabetes control is not good. It should be <7%. On insulin one can achieve a very good blood sugar control. You should try to maintain fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml.

I was diagnosed with cyst on ovaries last oct in 2017, was having severe hair fall. It has still not stopped. Recently I ran my test for thyroid: tsh is 2.17 and free t4 is 0.75 and free t3 is 2.55. As per report, due to low free t4 I am having hypothyroidism. What are your suggestions.

Low t4 with normal TSH suggests problem of pituitary gland function I.e. Central hypothyroidism. Need more details in the form of physical examination and investigations to confirm diagnosis and right treatment. Visit qualified endocrinologist (Doctor with DM or DNB training in endocrinology) in your city.
