lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given in the query. But there is absolutely no informmmation on her actual current blood glucose levels like fasting, PP & HbA1c% or the drugs being taken with dosage. Also no information on her dietary habits and whether she exercises daily. Unless these details are there there in no way I can give any opinion or comment. The information is very general. Plus if the weight & height mentioned is hers then she is close to be in grade 1 obesity with a BMI 29.68 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). This itself can be a major contributing factor for uncontrolled diabetes. So if you come in a private conversation with all the relevant details then I will be able to give specific advise. Thanks,

Hlo sir/mam
Now blood sugar on 300. So how do decreased in blood sugar suddenly .pls refer the solution.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. 300 mg blood glucose is very high. (no mention whether it s fasting or PP). You need to start appropriate treatment with proper drugs, plus diet control and exercise. All te things have to be done simultaneously. My suggestion to come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP & HbA1c, dietary habits, extent of daily exercise Looking at your weight and height it is clear that with a BMI of 31.25 kgs/M2, you have obesity, which can be a major contributor for high blood glucose. Thanks.

Hello, if symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days continuous cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ENT problem like DNS, polyp, sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition like Allergic Rhinitis so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

While having sex my penis started bleeding due to torn of frenulum what will I do next?
Dear lybrate user. The primary symptom of a torn frenulum is pain, which is most severe when partaking in activities that put pressure on the area, such as sexual intercourse. There may be bleeding from the area immediately after the incident, resulting from the tear in the skin. If there is no bleeding, just leave it for a week till it heals. Take care.

Premature Ejaculation - Understanding the Causes!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Premature Ejaculation - Understanding the Causes!

In today's stress filled life, most of us struggle from a number of problems, be it physiological or psychological. Premature ejaculation is the uncontrolled ejaculation that occurs when a man experiences orgasm and expels semen soon after sexual intercourse. 1 out of the 3 men faces this problem. If it is happening on a regular basis then it is a cause of concern.

Causes for premature ejaculation:

Biological cause
Abnormal hormone level
Abnormal levels of brain chemicals
Thyroid problem
Damage of nervous system
Infection in the urethra or prostate
Heredity

Psychological cause
Erectile dysfunction
Anxiety about intercourse
Cultural guilt related to sexual pleasure
Relationship problems

This problem can be treated using modern techniques like sex therapy, medication or cognitive behaviour therapy. Our ancient Indian literature like 'kamasutra' describes various methods of Ayurvedic treatment by combining various herbs and natural ingredients.

Following are some of the Ayurvedic ingredients for treating premature ejaculation:
1. Safed musli (Chlorphytum Borivillianum) - It is a small herbs rich in saponnins. It acts as natural source of antioxidants.
2. Kali musli (Curculigo Orchiodes) - It is a small herb rich natural tannins. It's a small shrub having thick leaves.
3. Semal musli( Salmalia Malabarica) - It is a herb the extracts of which contains tannic acid and gallic acid as active chemicals.
4. Gokshur( Tribulus Terrestris) - It is a herb that acts as a urinary bladder cleanser.
5. Shatavari( Asparagus Racemosus) - It is a herb that helps overcome physical weakness.
6. Ashwagandha( Withania Somniferum) - It is a dense and hairy shrub that boosts stamina, gives rejuvenation and helps in secretion of semen.
7. Akarkara( Anacyclus Pyrethrum) - It is a hairy shrub that improves the level of stamina.
8. Jaiphal( Myristica Fragrans) - The barks and leaves of jaiphal boosts energy and fights microbial infections.

The above mentioned ingredients can be combined together in form of a churan and can be taken to overcome the problem of premature ejaculation. Ayurveda is one of the oldest forms of medicine providing natural solution with no side effects. Hence it should be given a preference over the modern techniques. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Do we really required cooked food for survival with the same vigour and enthu like all. I. E can we lead normal life eating uncooked food?

Do we really required cooked food for survival with the same vigour and enthu like all. I. E can we lead normal life ...
Dear sir, one needs to have a balance of cooked and raw foods for survival. Only raw food will not make up all your nutrient requirements, because some of them can be made available only after cooking. But raw food is also very important. That is why we stress on salads and fruits also for a healthy body. Some foods without cooking also may lead to certain infections of the stomach and may also cause too mush of bloating. And indigestion. So a wise balance needs to, be maintained.
