Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. (t2 dm). Since insulin is needed for daily for glucose, protein and fat metabolism, if it is lacking or there resistance to its action, then it has to be made available with help of various drugs. If not then there is persistent high blood sugar. High blood sugar affects small & large blood vessels, nerve fibers and almost every vital organ in the body. Untreated or uncontrolled diabetes causes blindness, chronic kidney failure leading to total failure, peripheral neuropathy, affection to feet, non- healing ulcers on foot, lower limb, can lead to loss of limb. In india 1 lac limbs are cut due to diabetic gangrene. Severe burning sensation and tingling and numbness may occur in the lower limbs. Silent heart attacks are common. So we need to treat diabetes for life long.

Masturbation is harmless, do not be guilty about it. There are many things you can do to keep yourself and your sperms healthy. These include: 1.     Avoid cigarettes and illicit drugs, especially anabolic steroids. 2.     Avoid exposure to toxins such as pesticides and heavy metals. 3.     Quit or at least limit your alcohol intake. 4.     Drink 3-4 litres of water per day. 5.     Have a healthy, nutritious diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. 6.     Exercise moderately, but regularly. 7.     Get sufficient rest. 8.     Keeping your scrotum cool, because heat slows sperm production; wear boxers instead of briefs, and avoid pants that are tight or restrictive. 9.     Prevent overheating of the testes by avoiding hot baths, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and using a laptop computer directly on your lap for long lengths of time.

Well, you have not given the diagnosis and the medication she is on. If she is psychotic, then she has a permanent condition and you have to learn to live with her and it. The daughter is very important too and will carry the genes too. You should get some help like a nanny and may be a female nurse, especially when you go to work. You will have to learn to juggle between work, daughter, and your wife. Your wife must also go for counseling in combination with the medication. The counseling will help her cope with a lot of things in life and you could both sort your differences too. She must do regular exercises and have a full day with interesting activities. There may be a daycare center for her kind and you could keep her there for a good part of the day as an alternative.

Reason for bad breath may be due to deposition of tartar and plaque on tooth surface or pus formation in gums. You should go through cleaning of teeth by the dentist and thorough dental check up.

If you are suffering from premature ejaculation then along with medicine & home therapy you can try the kegel's exercise. You have to do kegel's exercise once daily during the first time of urination after waking up from sleep at morning. Kindly note the following steps to perform the kegel's exercise:- 1) start urinating until you feel that you have voided almost half amount of urine from bladder. 2) when you feel you have voided almost half of the urine try to stop the flow of urine by squeezing the internal muscles of penis. 3) you should not use your hands to stop the flow. Your hands should be resting on your waist. You have to stop the urine only by your self control over the internal muscles of penis. 4) try to stop the urine flow by the control of internal muscles up to 20 seconds. On the very first day you won't be able to hold the urine for more than 3 seconds. However, practicing the exercise daily will improve your control over the muscles of penis & after 15-20 days you will be able to stop the urine for 20 seconds by the control of your pelvic muscles. This control of pelvic muscles will help you to get rid of premature ejaculation while you are performing sexual intercourse 5) after 20 seconds is over, void the rest of the urine. Do not stop the flow of urine for more than 30 seconds. N. P.- kegel's exercise is effective only in the case of premature ejaculation & it is not helpful for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction.

When I cough it feel very dry and during breathing it feels like something is stuck I used various home remedies like Steam Ginger Salt water gargle But it Didn't work. I think the reason would be because of smoking or drinking I have just stopped the smoking. Otherwise I use to smoke 2 to 3 cigarettes a day. But I have stopped it because of this. From past few weeks I was taking drink like whisky. Whiskey was taken twice or sometime thrice a week.. My whole lungs are clean. The only thing is I am feeling roughness in my neck And its not getting clean since a 4 days. What should I do no. And also a basketball player. So I use to run 5 km a day And a Normal light weight training. I need a advice what should I do. And one thing more. Does 5 months of smoking leads to any type of cancer in my body?. Lungs cancer or voice box cancer. Please help me. thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Your problems seem to be mostly due to allergy. To clear off the sticky mucous, drinking half a glass of luke warm water in which a teaspoonful of fresh honey, 1/4 tsp turmeric, little bit of grated ginger and about 2 pieces of black pepper (grind) are mixed properly would help. You can take this twice daily after food. As an alternative to the above-mentioned, you may as well take 10 ml of Dabur Honitus syrup, thrice daily. Its in your best interest that you have stopped smoking. It seems you are somehow allergic to certain foods and drinks including tea, and also smoking which when taken is leading to excess mucous secretion and hence the stickiness. I would first and foremost advise you to restrict intake of such foods/ drinks so that you can prevent most of these issues. I recommend you to have a balanced yet relatively bland diet devoid of excessive spices, salt, oil et al and have a regularized lifestyle with due emphasis on relaxation/ de-stressing. Exercise/ walking for at least 30 - 45 mins should be a part of your daily regimen unless you have other health issues that do not allow you to. Again, in order that you do not get acidity, it is advisable that you avoid tomato based products, citrus fruits/ juices, greasy, fatty or fried and hot foods, sweets, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, tea (with milk), deep fried flesh foods, peppermint, dairy products including chocolates etc. Also, avoid sticky foods that create more of mucous leading to congestion in throat. Hope this helps correct your condition and also give you a long term prophylactic support. You can always meet up a ENT specialist in person for further clinical evaluation should you not get relief still. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Injection treatments are risky and associated with possibility of complications. Be careful about what you are doing. Upto 90% of erectile dysfunction is due to performance anxiety and are best treated with psychological techniques such as senate focus.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).
