Diabetes & Kidney - Here Are The Complications!

MD, MBBS, FRCP - Nephrology
Nephrologist, Delhi
Diabetes & Kidney - Here Are The Complications!

At a point when our bodies process the protein we eat, the procedure creates waste products. In kidneys, millions of tiny blood vessels act as filters since they have even tinier holes in them. As blood flows through these vessels, little molecules such as waste items may press through the gaps. These waste items turn out to be a part of the urine. Helpful substances, such as protein and red blood cells are too enormous to go through the gaps in the filter and stay in the blood.

Diabetes and kidneys: Diabetes can harm the kidneys. Abnormal amounts of glucose make the kidneys filter a lot of blood. After a couple of years, they begin to spill and helpful protein is thereby, lost in urine. Having low protein levels in the urine is called micro albuminuria.

Medication: When kidney disease is analyzed on time, during micro albuminuria, a few medications may keep kidney disease from getting worse. Having elevated levels of protein in the urine is called macro albuminuria. When kidney disease is looked up some other time during macro albuminuria, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) usually follows.

Causes: Strain on the organs may cause the kidneys to lose their filtering capacity. Waste items then begin to develop in the blood. Finally, the kidneys start to fail. This failure, ESRD, is intense. A patient with ESRD needs a kidney transplant or a blood filtration by a machine (dialysis).

Other complications: Individuals with diabetes will probably have other kidney-related issues such as bladder infections and nerve damages in the bladder.

Preventing complications: Not everybody with diabetes goes through a kidney disease. Elements that can impact kidney disease improvement include genetics, blood-sugar control and blood pressure. The more a person keeps diabetes and blood pressure under control, the lower the chances of getting a kidney disease.

Keeping your glucose level high can counteract diabetic kidney problems. Research has demonstrated that blood glucose control diminishes the danger of micro albuminuria by 33%. For individuals who suffer from micro albuminuria have now a reduced danger of advancing to macro albuminuria. Different studies have recommended that blood glucose control can reverse micro albuminuria.

Treatment: Essential treatments for kidney infection include control of blood glucose and blood pressure. Blood pressure dramatically affects the rate at which the condition progresses. Indeed, even a gentle increase in blood pressure can rapidly aggravate a kidney infection. Four approaches to bring down your blood pressure are:

  1. Shedding pounds
  2. Eating less salt
  3. Maintaining a strategic distance from liquor and tobacco
  4. Exercising regularly

A low-protein diet can decrease the amount of lost protein in the urine and increase the protein levels in the blood. Never begin a low-protein diet without talking to your physician or nephrologist.

Premature Ejaculation in Men

MBBS,MD(medicine), PGDS(sexology), Fellowship in sexual medicines

Premature Ejaculation in Men

Don't let ailments and problems affect your relationship, rather discuss about your concerns and get treated. Premature ejaculation is often defined as the ejaculation, which is uncontrolled and takes place either prior to or just after a sexual penetration. This happens much before a person desires for an ejaculation. It can also take place with minimum stimulation and is quite unsatisfactory for both the partners. This often leads to anxiety and other problems and can affect any man at any point of his life. This is known to be the most common form of male sexual dysfunction (lear more about the healthy sexual life)

Causes of premature ejaculation: The particular cause of premature ejaculation is believed to happen due to the physical factors of weakness in muscles and nerves of the penis due to past history of masturbation (learn more about masturbation), thinning and ejaculation of semen soon and some psychological factors such as depression, guilt, and anxiety. In some cases, it might be related to a medical cause such as the side effect of medications, injury and hormonal imbalance or problems.

Symptoms of premature ejaculation: One of the main and most concerned symptoms is that there is uncontrolled ejaculation prior to or shortly after the intercourse. This often takes place with a minimum sexual pleasure of both partners and before a person desires, resulting in dissatisfaction in sex.

Diagnoses of premature ejaculation: The doctor usually discusses medical history along with sexual history. A thorough physical examination might be done. Some lab tests might be ordered by the doctor to rule out the cause of premature ejaculation, as it can have any cause.

Treatment of premature ejaculation: Many times, premature ejaculation can get better over a period of time and treatment might not be needed. Often distraction methods or relaxation techniques are helpful in delaying an ejaculation. Abstinence or lowering the use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs might help in controlling ejaculation in some men.

Doctor might recommend you and your partner some techniques, which help in delaying an ejaculation. Different positions can be tried or communicate with the partner to stop or slow down the stimulation. Also, one can start identifying the sensations which build up an ejaculation. If this does not work then behavioural therapy and counselling might help.

Sometimes antidepressants like anafranil (clomipramine) and priligy (dapoxetine) might be given to treat premature ejaculation. These drugs are used because one of the side effects of these is delayed ejaculation. Tramadol a medication for pain can also be used to delay ejaculation. Also, there are gels, creams, and sprays which can be used to reduce the sensations and in turn delay the ejaculation. These are lidocaine and lidocaine-prilocaine and are often applied on the penis before a sexual act. However, the flip side of these is that it might affect the sex partner as well by reducing their sensation as well.

However, if the premature ejaculation persists and hampers sexual satisfaction of partner, it should be consulted via sexologist for proper guidance and complete treatment.

Most of the men are not happy with the penis size. This may be the result of unrealistic pictures shown in pornographic pictures and also some myths and misconceptions. But for majority of them, if it is sufficient for intercourse, then it's normal. But in very few of them may have really small sized organ, that demands proper check up and investigation to diagnose and treat the cause. So, if there is confusion, it's better to consult doctor. The drugs and oil available in market are absolutely useless and may even harm you.

My penis is bend downward is that a problem?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Penis curved towards right or left or downward is always normal and this can be seen with majority of people. This mostly happen due to masturbation. People who use right hand for masturbation, their penis will be curved to the left and the opposite with left handlers. There are other reasons too. This phenomenon is quite normal and there is nothing to worry. In fact, curved penis will give you more pleasure when you engage in vaginal intercourse than straight penis simply because curvature provides more friction. Enjoy your curve. I suggest online sex education. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, after going through your symptoms and history, it seems you are suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). It is commonly seen in software engineers or those who use computers constantly for a long duration. Here are a certain tips I suggest which you bring relief to your symptoms. 1. Minimize the glare from the monitor to an optimum level or use an antiglare coated screens on iPad/ laptops/ desktops. 2. Blink frequently. We invariably tend to blink less when focussing on the screen. Make sure you blink frequently so that there is adequate tear secretion and lubrication to the eyes which will prevent dryness and the problems associated with it. 3. To reduce your risk of tiring your eyes by constantly focusing on your screen, look away from your computer at least every 20 minutes and gaze at a distant object (at least 20 feet away) for at least 20 seconds. 4. Rearrange your desk. The best position for your monitor is slightly below eye level, about 20 to 28 inches away from your face. You shouldn't have to stretch your neck or strain your eyes to see what's on the screen. 5. To reduce your risk for computer vision syndrome and neck, back and shoulder pain, take frequent breaks during your computer work day. 6. Use cooling glasses to protect your eyes from the radiation from your system. 7. These symptoms tend to aggravate during summer. So you can use lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops, Tears naturale forte eye drops or Eubri eye drops which will be available over the counter. I hope these remedies will help you alleviate your symptoms. Please do write to me whether this helps or not. Regards.
