I have white color patches on my body, near the elbow area and some on my thighs and back. Is it because of my blood sugar as I am a diabetic?

It can be fungal infection Tinea Versicolor or Tinea cruris . If diabetes is not in control there are chances of related to diabetes.Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

I mastrubate one or two times i'm 22 years old and 51kg weight is it effect on my health especially my face getting acnes.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Masturbation is normal and does not cause physical problems or sexual problems. Acne is due to testosterone hormone and not due to masturbation. This hormone is increasing your desire for masturbation. It will gradually come down by 25 yrs.

Sex therapy: when you think you r about to come, just stop moving and ask your partner to stop moving as well and stay still for 30 seconds. In 70%, these technique works. Other technique is to ask the partner to squeeze the glans penis with thumb and finger tightly just when you think you r about to come. This will prevent you from ejaculating. If it doesn't help, consult a doctor.

It will not help you in coming out of your masturbation habit,nor it will be of any help in increasing the sperm quality,it is just a Nerve tonic containing Multi-vitamin esp Vit B-12 along with Vit-B 1 nd 6,Zinc,Folic acid and small amount of Calcium..Yes it will surely help in recovering due to weakness of excessive masturbation -------------------------------------------It is a fact that just as our body requires food for energy and so whenever we are hungry we eat something ,in the same way lust for sex keeps our mind hungry and this lust leads us to activities like masturbation or watching porn.We say that sex improves health but masturbation takes life from a person, steadily. Sex is with a partner and it's best with someone that you are in relationship with. Lust is an entity in itself and it will keep coming to steal your energy, if you keep feeding it. There is a much bigger picture here. Don't focus on it being a "sin" and more like that you are giving away and losing something that is better to protect. This energy also helps with manifesting positive things in a person's life. It's very precious to just give away. That's why the lust comes to take it from you.Masturbation and porn addictions lead to shame, guilt, and worry. All potentially disabling emotions. In fact, you probably feel a combination of these feelings right now. Right now, you are engaged in negative, probably compulsive masturbation( OBSCESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER). You are abusing your natural ability to enjoy your body. I will teach you how to comfortably change your negative masturbation practices into positive ones. I will help you rid yourself of your masturbation addiction, and allow you to still enjoy the benefits of positive, healthy masturbation. Consult me.

Why doctor give statin to their patients to prevent heart attack if statin can not percent heart attacks.
Statin group of medicines are given after heart attack to lower bad cholesterol, but now doctors are divided to give or not to give because of side effects like memory loss, risk to liver and kidneys, cancer risk etc, some doctors are giving dietary counselling, others are giving twice a week and still others are writing one per day out of reflex!

Hello- Each Suhagra tablet contains 25 mg, 50 mg or 100 mg of Sildenafil Citrate. It is also known as brand name Viagra which is much popular thn other variants. Suhagra is a symptomatic drug it can not cure your sexual weakness, but prolong use can further deteriorate your sexuality, this is the reason why you are not able to stay longer in bed now. If you want a permanent solution you should start herbal aphrodisiac which corrects the root cause of weakness and can provide a permanent strength to your penis.
