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.

chest pain due to high cholesterol...Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I am addicted to smoke want ignore from that habit from past 2-3 weeks chest pain effects more.

You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Check your fasting and post prandial sugar levels along with hba1c to asses the exact glucose levels. Your bp readings are also high. Consult a good diabetologist for further treatment.

Hi, The hemoglobin is not too bad and will pick up with syrup haem-up one tablespoon everyday after breakfast for 3 months. For cholesterol you will need to take some statins which can be prescribed by a physician. High cholesterol increases the risk for heart damage.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes t2, then it is essential to have good control of blood sugar, for that fasting should be near 100 mg, pp shoud be 150 to 160 mg (as you have now) and hba1c% < 6.8. Diet for a person with diabetes has to be very individualised, so I need to know present dietary habits, fasting sugar levels and hba1c% plus daily exercise level. In the mean time avoid sweets, direct sugar and gur, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Also exercise regularly for at least 1 hour. Our is just about 20 kg/m2 which is in fact much lower than normal bmi of 23 kg/m2.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Hello Doctor, I'm 46 year old male teetotaller, under medication for hypertension. Basically I'm very vulnerable person particularly about my health issues. Last year I had panic attack and undergone all tests including echo. All seems to me normal and my physician advised to continue with same medication, ie. Tab Lodoz 2.5 mg twice daily. I'm suffering from Hemorrhoid for last 10 years and controlling the same with my life style changes and food habit. However I'm suffering from GERD as well, may be because of this. With empty stomach, in the morning I used to walk almost 90 minutes daily without any difficulty. However recently I'm experiencing shortness of breath, palpitation and feeling some blockage in the throat while climbing steps and gradients, after taking food. Is this because of GERD? Kindly advise.

You need to focus on a powerful, long term De Stress program under professional guidance. All you symptoms are an out put of uncontrolled stress. Proper management of food, regular eating times, proper chewing of food, proper regulated water intake and full 8 hours of sound sleep will change your health positively in a short time. Medicines including anti acid etc. Will control the symptoms, but you need to make essential life style changes to over come the cause of disease.

Hi hemoglobin less then 7 mg/dl should immidiately be treated with blood transfusion. 4 is gross anaemia he should be admitted immediately and should be transfused3 units of blood 2d echo should be done to rule out cardiac output ,because severe anaemia results in congestive cardiac failure. Admission to hospital with complete cardiac evaluation is very important thaks.
