It is very difficult to give a clear answer why it happened. But it appears the earlier treatment of giving two sulfonylureas (SU) together was a wrong approach. Ideally one of the SUs is given along with metformin most often. Secondly diabetes itself damages glomerular filtering membrane in the kidney, this leads deterioration of kidney function. That leads to increase in creatinine level, protein excretion etc. In such situation Insulin is the best medication for blood glucose control. Ideally fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7, then only all the long term complications of diabetes can either be postponed or prevented. Thanks.

Diabetes occurs because of lack of insulin. Hence that's the only treatment. You cannot stop that or replace it.

Hi. I understand your concerns. Chronic smoking is very injurious. He has probably developed bronchitis due to smoking. He needs a detailed evaluation like chest x ray to look for infection or malignancy. Once he recovers from same. He needs to undergo pulmonary function test to assess severity of bronchitis based on which treatment needs to be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered.

Male Menopause - Can Homeopathic Remedies Help Treat it?

Male Menopause - Can Homeopathic Remedies Help Treat it?

Do men encounter a comparable physiological stage to what women encounter amid menopause? Alluded to as 'andropause', 'male menopause', 'man-opause', and all the more as of late, 'low T', is called as Andropause or male menopause. In any case, while all women experience menopause, not all men encounter andropause.

What Is Andropause?
Andropause is a slow, enduring disease in the male hormones testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone. Testosterone naturally diminishes as men age, yet in andropause (therapeutically characterized as 'hypogonadism'), levels of the hormone drop below the ordinary range for a given age, commonly in moderately aged men.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone Level:
Do low level of testosterone deliver symptoms in moderately aged men? Actually, the exemplary symptoms were initially perceived over 70 years prior when two American physicians, Carl Heller, MD, and Gordon Myers, MD, demonstrated the adequacy of testosterone treatment for symptoms of weakness, discouragement, fractiousness, low sex drive, erectile brokenness, night sweats and hot flashes in men.

Why Do Hormones Drop?
There are various elements that can prompt to low testosterone:

  1. Obesity, diabetes and insulin resistance: The level of aggregate and free testosterone is decreased in large men in extent to the level of heftiness. Weight reduction alone has been appeared to build testosterone levels by 50 percent.
  2. Chronic aggravation: Insulin resistance is the key figure creating quiet irritation and lifted levels of high-affectability C-responsive protein (hs-CRP), a marker of aggravation that can be measured by a blood test.
  3. Increased introduction to xenoestrogens: Certain mixes found in nourishment and the environment can increase the impacts of estrogen in men, in this manner decreasing testosterone creation. These "xenoestrogens" incorporate pesticides, phthalates from plastics, tobacco smoke side effects, substantial metals, and solvents.
  4. Lack of physical movement: Participating in consistent episodes of short, extreme work out, particularly weight lifting, is one of the speediest approaches to support testosterone.
  5. Stress: It negatively affects testosterone levels by expanding the arrival of the adrenal hormone cortisol.

Homeopathic Medicines for Andropause: (Medicines should be taken on proper prescription of Doctor)

  1. Ashwagandha
  2. Suma
  3. Avena sativa
  4. Maca
  5. Catuaba
  6. Tongkat ali
  7. Muira puama

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

You can undergo circumsion at any age if it is giving you pain while retracting your foreskin. Some pain is involved in this surgery. Bed rest is not required, but you have to protect that area under bandage. It takes around 7-14 days to heal the sutures. Intercourse is possible after 3 to 4 weeks and it does not affect ejaculation.

Hi, thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. It looks like there is no problem in your brain if your mri scan is normal. However many people continue to have symptoms of vertigo due to problems in the inner ear. The inner ear contains the vestibular system which participates in maintaining balance and gait. There are tiny hair cells in the ear which are surrounded by fluid. Changes in the characteristics of these hair cells and fluid might give rise to chronic vertigo. Chronic ear infection is also to be tested. Please consult an ent specialist and get test done for vertigo and nystagmus. Hope your blood investigations are normal. Regards,

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

I that of taking Purim tablets from Himalaya drugs to cleanse/purify my blood. I have a history of little uric acid as ll. I cannot take too many medicine as I keep travelling. Can anybody prescribe me one single medicine which has various benefit along with my current problems and also I have little low libido. I prefer Ayurveda or homeopathy medicine. I use to take homeopathy medicine for boosting my sexual desires but the doctor never use to share his tonic information. He use to collect 500rs for 30 ml tonic and he use to mix 2-3 variety of tonic in one 30 ml bottle, which actually worked. I had very long duration and enjoyed lot with the medicine. But uric acid use to shoot up by that medicine. I want medicine which can balance my uric acid as ll as maintain my man hood life. Dear, doctors, I am 35 years old guy. Kindly prescribe me a single medicine at least for blood purifying and uric acid, also the dosage and how long should I take for permanent cure. Blood purifying I want to clear the toxins from my body. Thanks and appreciate for the patience that you see to my question .regards :shankar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since you have belief only on Ayurveda and homeopathy it is good enough. But according to modern science, our blood is never spoiled or has any toxic substances to purify it. This is purely an Ayurvedic concept, the basis of which is difficult to understand. Because if our blood gets affected, as we know, a person can not survive. You also mentioned about some medicine given by the doctor (tonic), which would improve your libido etc. Since he does not disclose what ingredients it contains, how would one know if he has not mixed some modern medicine (allopathic) compounds in it. In modern medicine e there is npo secret, everything is clearly mentioned. To reduce uric acid one has to restrict red meat, organ meat, certain sea foods, and fishes. Avoid alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks. Reduce high fat foods. Thanks.

There are many types of insulinis. Most of them are available in pen. If you are type 1, you would benefit from buying a permanent insulin pen. You would only have to change the cartridges when the insulin gets over inside. Most companies have helplines in place to assist taking of the injections.
