Mr. lybrate-user Kumar, To suggest medication for treating diabetes I need to know following things: fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, extent of daily exercise and diet pattern. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions. So if you are looking for specific advise please come in a private conversation with all the above details, thanks.

Tips On Preconception Health For Men

Tips On Preconception Health For Men

As couples prepare for pregnancy, it is easy to focus only on the woman's health. However, there are several habits men need to be forming during these critical months of preparation too. Issues of fertility do not rest solely on the female.

'agents that may cause birth defects do not reach the developing fetus through the father as they do from the pregnant mother,' but we do know that male exposure to certain substances can lead to some preliminary problems with fertility and also slightly elevate the risk of certain birth defects.

Male infertility alone accounts for approximately 1/3 of all infertility cases. Should fertility issues arise, you should plan ahead to be in the best physical condition to conceive.

Clean out the medicine cabinet

Eliminate as many medications from your routine as possible. Talk with your physician about your prescription medications. You may need to discontinue use or try something new.

The following medications have been known to impact male fertility:
 

  • Tagamet (cimetidine), sulfasalazine, and nitrofurantoin are used to treat ulcers, gastrointestinal problems, and urinary tract infections. These medications may impact sperm production and sperm count.
  • Steroids, such as prednisone and cortisone, which are used to treat asthma, arthritis and skin conditions, impact male fertility.
  • Chemotherapy and radiation could cause sterility or a significant change in sperm quality and quantity.



Take a good look at your work environment

Your work environment may be a contributing factor to your fertility. Ongoing exposure to certain agents such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers, lead, nickel, mercury, chromium, ethylene glycol ethers, petrochemicals, benzene, perchloroethylene, and radiation can lower sperm quality, quantity and possibly lead to infertility or miscarriage.


Eat and sleep

What you eat can make a difference. Find out what your proper weight range should be and make the necessary dietary and exercise changes to get there. Studies suggest that some men with low sperm count also have a zinc deficiency.

The following foods are high in zinc and could increase your fertility:
 



Adding more vitamin e may also help the process along. There are male fertility supplements available containing vitamins, minerals and other ingredients designed to help improve overall reproductive health.

Also, keep in mind getting plenty of rest is good for everything that ails you, even low sperm count and sperm quality.

Avoid alcohol and other substances

Eliminate alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and any illicit drugs. Too much alcohol may reduce zinc levels, and drugs decrease sperm quality. There is some research that may link smoking and certain rare heart defects, but further studies must be done to make an accurate conclusion. Marijuana has been proven to affect sperm quality and sperm count, but there is no evidence that shows that marijuana causes birth defects.

Keep your testicles cool

Heat from hot tubs, saunas, long showers (more than 30 minutes), heating pads, electric blankets, and tight clothing like briefs and spandex could cause your testicles to become too hot, which decreases sperm quantity.

Stay away from cycling

Cycling can cause a lot of friction and jostling, which increases the temperature of your testicles. The rise in temperature and possibility of injury may cause a low sperm count.

Hello Doctors, respect and thanks in advance for commenting on my query, I am sure I will get an ‘expert’ advise eventually. Well, my mother is 58 years old weighing 62 kgs. She is a diabetic (no insulin injection) and her sugar reports are as follows:- Plasma Glucose (F) – 124 and Plasma Glucose (P.P) – 201 mg/dl. She is also a heart patient, she gets tired (haapti hain aur paseena aataa hain) after walking for 1-2 kilometres and we are visiting a cardiologist every 3 months from last 12 years. Her current HEART medicines are Valent 40, Tide 5 Mg, Tide 10 mg, xplode tab, Asomex 2.5 mg, tonact 10 mg, Glycomet 250 mg and rivotril 0.5 mg. As per recent 2D echo test, her heart’s efficiency is 35%. Our regular cardiologist says, she has to take these medicines for lifelong with no option. My mom is scared of Angiography and says she don’t want to take chances with her life with this test due to her fear. Our reason to worry these days is different, she is getting tingling, tickling or prickling sensation experienced in her hands at regular intervals from last 10-12 days, I believe medical term is “Paresthesia”. I am tensed and I really want to take preventive measures for my mom due to this unusual and regular sensation. Simultaneously I also want to get her treated “permanently” from this heart disease. Can all experts please comment, firstly on “Paresthesia” and then on permanent freedom from this heart medicines / disease? Which type of tests I should do first (full body check up) or which type of doctor shall I see on priority, if required?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have read the details and understand your concern. She is on mainly on two anthypertensive drugs and a diuretic to reduce her blood pressure. (Valent, Tide and Asomex). Those have to be continued as as she may be having high BP. There is no cardiac specific drug. Xplode tab is kind of a general tonic and some aphrodesiac activity because of ginseng. Which more of a claim. Its other benefits are again not really substantiated. How is her blood glucose controlled? In a person with well controlled diabetes fasting should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<6.8. If she is in this range then it is good. As regards getting angieography done. If the cardiologist has advised it, then she should under go that procedure. It is a very simple procedure. There is no danger in it. It will give a clear idea of her coronary vessels (blood vessels supplying the heart). There is no other method by which those blood vessels fuction can be visualised. By refusing to under go that procedure she is putting herself to a greater danger, than the procedure itself. So my advise is she should under go it. Secondly all the drugs she is taking (except Xplode) need to be continued for life time or as long as doctor tells her. If her blood glucose is not well controlled that has a negative effect on the heart. So that treatment also has to be looked at. Thanks.

Most of medical challanges need doctor to listen to detailed medical history in form of questions and answers, examination of patient and sometimes reports so meet concerned doctor.-diabetologist.

Although your sugar levels are not alarmingly high but these levels r maintained since 2 yrs, so it is a problem and for this I will reccomend you an effective and safe homoeopathic treatment. Follow up after 2 months diabonil (sbl) 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 15 minutes before meal uranium nitricum 1x (wilmar schawe india) 2 tab twice daily direct in mouth and chew eat little at a time every 2-3 hourly.
