Hi lybrate-user, there can be many causes for poor motility of sperms and some of these can be managed with medications. You need to consult an infertility expert for further treatment. There are methods to take sperms out surgically and these sperms can be used to fertilize your wife's eggs in a laboratory. The fertilized egg can then be transferred into your wife's uterus for pregnancy. Its a treatable condition in most case. Good luck.

lybrate-user, Insulin is essential in T1 diabetes as there is no other drug that works in that condition. If you have T2 diabetes then unless diabetes is very severe with blood glucose levels over 300 to 400 mg/100 ml, there may be no need to start with Insulin. There are enough good drugs available which give excellent glucose control. Thanks.

Your bmi is 31.54 kg/m2 showing grade 1 obesity. I am not aware what all the measures you have done to reduce weight. Please give details of thyroid test report, let me see that. Secondly your diet has to be based on (for caloric value) on ideal body weight that is 60 kgs, since you want to cut weight your total intake has to be very well regulated. That means daily calories should be restricted to a maximum of 1200 to 1300 kcal/day. Plus you will have to exercise for at least 1 hour. Brisk walking, aerobic exercise, jogging, skipping and swimming are to be undertaken. This has to continue for at least over a period of 3 to 4 years with same intensity. You should aim at a reduction of 5 to 8 % of present weight, initially.

Usually if one is taking good food (balanced diet), there is hardly any need for supplements. But if you are feeling good with those may continue with. All these three vitamins are fat soluble and get stored in the body, hence taking excess is not advisable. Where as bcomplex group and vitamin c are water soluble supplementing them regularly is unlikely to cause any difficulty. So you might take vit a, d & e for a few days and stop and then take again if required.

What are the symptoms of diabetes? Is drinking tea again and again that is more than 5 times a day is injurious for me?

What are the symptoms of diabetes? Is drinking tea again and again that is more than 5 times a day is injurious for me?
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is of mainly two types t1, where there is no insulin at in the body, this occurs early in childhood or teen ages most often. Patients have to take insulin for treatment and for survival. T2 usually occurs in later years, here there is either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Most often these patients are over weight and lead a very sedentary life style. Treatment is with either oral anti-diabetes drugs or with insulin or both together. As regards in general diabetes hardly produces any easily recognisable symptoms, hence most people do not come to know about the presence of the disease. Commonly associated symptoms are excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and early fatigue and tiredness. Taking tea more number of times has really no effect on diabetes, unless it has a lot of sugar. Otherwise tea can lead to hyperacidity, nothing to with diabetes. It can also disturb sleep, if taken late in the evening or night. Thanks for the question.

I recommend to control your sugar level 1) a healthy and well balanced diet having regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.
