Gymning, smoking, constant exposure to hot weather, constant pressure due to illfitting inners do bring down sperm count, no operation is needed, if your counts are low, try modification of lifestyle & medicines are given only if there is difficulty to conceive by woman. There is a blockage which is doctor made, on both sides - vesectomy operation for family planning or some injury or some illness like mumps suffered during childhood. Get a semen test done to reassure yourself.

Hi, edema is the medical term for swelling. It is a general response of the body to injury or inflammation. Edema can be isolated to a small area or affect the entire body. Medications, infections, pregnancy, and many medical problems can cause edema. Causes of edema: edema is a normal response of the body to inflammation or injury. Edema can also result from medical conditions or problems in the balance of substances normally present in blood. Some of the causes of edema include: -low albumin (hypoalbuminemia) -allergic reactions -obstruction of flow -burns, life-threatening infections, or other critical illnesses can cause a whole-body reaction that allows fluid to leak into tissues almost everywhere -edema and heart disease (congestive heart failure). When the heart weakens and pumps blood less effectively, fluid can slowly build up, creating leg edema. If fluid buildup occurs rapidly, fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema) can develop. If there is heart failure of the right side of the heart, oftentimes edema can develop in the abdomen, as well. -edema and liver disease -edema and kidney disease -edema and pregnancy -cerebral edema (brain edema) -numerous medications can cause edema get a thorough examination and investigation done by your doctor for correct diagnosis.

After testing I had been detected as vitamin-d deficiency. If we have vitamin-d deficiency then vitamin b12will also be less? Now a days a feel pain in various parts of my body mostly different parts of my chest, one day feel pain at one place next day in other part, is this due to vitamin -d deficiency or anything critical?

Vitamin B 12 is a part of our diet and is absorbed in the gut with the help of Intrinsic Factor secreted by the stomach. Inability of body to secrete enough Intrinsic Factor causes poor absorption of B 12. This causes anaemia and neuritis. Vit D although a part of diet from non vegetarian food or fats artificially fortified with Vitamin D, it is naturally synthesized in the body in presence of sunlight. Poor exposure to Sun causes deficiency of this vitamin. The type of life we people are living nowadays, mostly keeping indoors, has contributed to this. Enjoy sunlight in the morning before noon hours when ultraviolet rays strike the body at a particular angle and save yourself from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is mostly is due to Intrinsic factor problem hence dietary absorption is not possible. Such patients need to be given Methocobalamin a B12 isomer to replenish the deficiency. You need to take these vitamins therapeutically till the levels reach normal and then prophylactic doses should be continued for maintaining these levels.
