Male Menopause / Andropause:

Ph.D (Male Infertility), M.S (Infertility), D.G.L.S, D.R.C.O.G, C.Sc., D.M.R.D, M.B.B.S
Sexologist, Bangalore

Male menopause / andropause:
“Male menopause” is also called andropause. It describes a drop in testosterone levels that many men experience when they get older. 
Declining testosterone levels can cause many symptoms. For example, it can cause depression, reduced muscle mass, increased body fat, and erectile dysfunction.
To treat your problems, you have to change your 
Lifestyle. You may require antidepressant medications, counseling, or hormone therapy.
Male menopause” is the more common term for andropause. It describes age-related changes in male hormone levels. The same group of symptoms is also known as testosterone deficiency, androgen deficiency, and late-onset hypogonadism. 

Male menopause involves a drop in testosterone production in men who are age 50 or older. It’s often affiliated with hypogonadism. Both conditions involve lowered testosterone levels and similar symptoms.

Symptoms:
Male menopause can cause physical, sexual, and psychological problems. They typically worsen as you get older. They can include:

  • Low energy
  • Depression or sadness
  • Decreased motivation
  • Lowered self-confidence
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass and feelings of physical weakness
  • Gynecomastia, or development of breasts
  • Decreased bone density
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced libido
  • Infertility

You may also experience swollen or tender breasts, decreased testicle size, loss of body hair, or hot flashes. Low levels of testosterone associated with male menopause have also been linked to osteoporosis. This is a condition where your bones become weak and brittle. These are rare symptoms. They typically affect men at the same age as women entering menopause. 

As you age, your testosterone levels will typically begin to drop. 

 

Diagnosis and treatment:

Get your blood serum testosterone levels tested in a laboratory.

The most common type of treatment for symptoms of male menopause is making healthier lifestyle choices. 

 

It is advisable to:

  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Get regular exercise
  • Get enough sleep
  • Reduce your stress

These lifestyle habits can benefit all men. After adopting these habits, men who are experiencing symptoms of male menopause may see a dramatic change in their overall health.

If you’re experiencing depression, you may require antidepressants, therapy, and lifestyle changes. 

Testosterone:
Onions and garlic are your allies in the kitchen and in the bedroom. They help you make more and better sperm. Both raise levels of a hormone that triggers your body to make testosterone. And both have high levels of natural plant chemical called flavonoids.

Skin patch (transdermal): androderm is a skin patch worn on the arm or upper body. It's applied once a day.
Gels: androgel and testim come in packets of clear testosterone gel. Testosterone is absorbed directly through the skin when you apply the gel once a day. Androgel, axiron, and fortesta also come in a pump that delivers the amount of testosterone prescribed by your doctor. Natesto is a gel applied inside the nose. 
Mouth patch: striant is a tablet that sticks to the upper gums above the incisor, the tooth just to the right or left of the two front teeth. Applied twice a day, it continuously releases testosterone into the blood through the oral tissues.
Injections and implants: testosterone can also be injected directly into the muscles, or implanted as pellets in the soft tissues. Your body slowly absorbs the testosterone into the bloodstream.
Oral testosterone is available. However, some experts believe oral testosterone can have negative effects on the liver. Using other methods, such as skin patches, gels, orally disintegrating tablets, or injections, bypasses the liver and gets testosterone into the blood.

Many men with low testosterone report improved energy levels, sex drive, and mood after. If testosterone is low, why not replace it? not so fast. A low testosteron level by itself doesn't need treatment. Testosteron can have side effects, and the long-term risks and benefits aren't known. Only men with symptoms of low testosterone and blood levels that confirm this as the cause of symptoms should consider testosterone replacement.

Vomiting in Pregnancy - Is It More Than Just Morning Sickness?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)

Vomiting in Pregnancy - Is It More Than Just Morning Sickness?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is an extreme type of morning sickness. It is a pregnancy related queasiness and additionally painful at times. It can stop proper intake of food and other nourishments in your system which would affect the growing baby within, as well. Affecting around one to three percent of ladies, HG can lead to weight reduction, lack of healthy food intake and dehydration. In extreme cases, it can lead to unnatural birth cycle and, it can at times, be lethal.
Certain reasons can expand a woman’s odds of having serious morning sickness during pregnancy. Notwithstanding, having a family history of the condition, the following can put a woman at risk:

  1. The conceiving amount (twins, triplets, and so on.)
  2. History of motion sickness in general
  3. A headache or migraines with nausea

The queasiness or nausea can be so extreme at times that it can affect both, the mother as well as the baby. The powerlessness to not being able to eat the proper nourishment makes it difficult for the woman to meet her health and nutrient needs. Subsequently, she may get weaker. Furthermore, lost liquids, combined with the loss of stomach acid that happens during pregnancy, can bring about the lack of hydration and cause a complicated pregnancy.

In case a woman does not get treatment, it can bring about numerous complexities, including organ failure and the untimely birth of the infant. It is critical to talk to the specialist if a pregnant woman has any of the following indications:

  1. Sickness that continues throughout the day, making it difficult to eat or drink
  2. Vomiting that happens three to four times each day or losing one’s appetite
  3. Vomit that has blood or dashes of blood in it
  4. Weight reduction
  5. Black out or unsteadiness
  6. Diminished urine
  7. Fast heart rate
  8. Continuous migraine
  9. Parched mouth
  10. Extreme weakness

Medications that are normally used for morning sickness, for example, eating dry saltines in the morning might be suggested for women with extreme morning sickness. Treatments for this condition may include:

  1. A brief time of not eating by mouth to rest the gastrointestinal framework
  2. Intravenous (IV) liquids
  3. Vitamin and nourishing supplements

In case it is extreme, the pregnant lady might get a prescription to stop the vomiting, either by mouth or through an IV. The specialist may suggest eating foods with ginger or taking vitamin B6 supplements to mitigate sickness. The following can likewise offer assistance:

  1. Following a bland diet
  2. Eating regular little meals
  3. Drinking a lot of liquids when not feeling nauseous
  4. Staying away from hot and greasy foods
  5. Eating high-protein snacks
  6. Staying away from tactile boosts that can act as triggers

Therefore, morning sickness or vomiting is not always to be taken lightly during pregnancy. One should always consult a specialist when going through the same in an extreme way.

Sexual Disorders - 4 Common Types!

Sexual Disorders - 4 Common Types!

In slightly more medical terms, sexual disorder is known as sexual dysfunction. Sexual disorders are health conditions that could surface in both males and females. This not only acts as a hurdle in the path of an alternative understanding of sexuality but also deters spontaneous reporting of sexual problems. Patients largely feel the need to redress such problems; the fear of being ridiculed or being mocked deters them continually. Another way of approaching the problem and its subsequent treatment is to identify the factors leading to its development. Your way of life plays an eminent role in deciding the quality of your health. You may seek help from a professional to bring about fruitful changes in your lifestyle.

Sexual disorders can be categorized as follows

  1. Desire disorders: It often happens that a male or a female repeatedly feels laidback about indulging in sexual activity. The problem could be persistent in general or it could be directed towards a single partner. You may or may not develop this condition all of a sudden. Low levels of estrogen in females and low levels of testosterone in males are known to lead to such sexual irregularities.
  2. Sexual arousal disorders: Females at an older age or after childbirth often suffer from a sexual arousal disorder. The condition could also be found in young adults. It is characterized by a dry vagina and the lack of pleasure during foreplay or intercourse. Amid males this problem is prevalently known as erectile dysfunction. A man might not be able to enjoy physical contact with his partner. Men usually face difficulties in having a proper erection. The male organ in such a case is only partly erected.
  3. Sexual orgasm disorders: If you are on certain medications or have been experiencing frequent bouts of anxiety, attaining climax can be a headache. Patients of this disorder either fail to have an orgasm or it is extremely delayed.
  4. Sexual pain disorders: Pain disorders are more common in women. In most cases, painful intercourse is the result of lack of arousal. If the vagina is not sufficiently lubricated, a woman might experience severe pain. Pain can also be the symptom of a serious underlying disease like vaginismus. A medical condition where a man faces painful erection due to excess accumulation of blood in the penis is referred to as priapism. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi - तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi -  तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

नशा एक ऐसी बीमारी है जो हमें और हमारे अपनों को जीवन भर रुलाने की वजह बन सकती है। समाज का हर तबक़ा, हर उम्र के लोग नशे की चपेट में आते जा रहे हैं। आज बच्चे, बूढ़े, महिलाएं, पुरुष सभी नशे की लत घिरे हुए हैं और यह स्थिति दिन ब दिन भयावह रूप लेती जा रही है।
यूनिवर्सिटी ऑफ सिडनी के रिसर्चर्स का कहना है कि तम्बाकू का सेवन धूम्रपान के रूप में करने से आपके गले की नली जहा से आप सांस लेते है उसमें ऐसा नुकसान पहुँचा सकता है कि धूम्रपान छोड़ने के बाद भी वह नुकसान की भरपाई नही की जा सकती, इसलिए स्मोकर्स अगर खुद को यह दिलासा देते हैं कि वह आज तो सिगरेट पी रहे है पर कल छोड़ देंगे, तो वह खुद को ही नुक्सान पहुंचा रहे होते हैं। एक आंकड़े के अनुसार, साल 2020 तक मौत के तीन मुख्य कारणों में से एक स्मोकिंग द्वारा होने वाले रोग बन जाएंगे।

कई कारणों से लोग तम्बाकू का सेवन करना शुरू करते है। कभी स्ट्रेस कम करने के लिए तो कभी गुस्से में, कभी टाइम पास करने और अक्सर शौक समझकर तम्बाकू का सेवन करते हैं, पर अंदाजा नहीं लगा सकते कि आप जिस तरह से तम्बाकू को सहजता से खा रहे हैं उसका उतना ही दयनीय परिणाम भी होता है। खैनी, सिगरेट, बीड़ी, गुटखा वगैरा तम्बाकू को जिस भी रूप में लिया जाए इसके नुकसान निश्चित हैं। तम्बाकू का नशा कोई एक समस्या ना होकर कई समस्याओं की जड़ है और यह शारीरिक और मानसिक रूप से नुकसान तो करता ही है साथ ही मौत को जल्दी बुला देता है।
उन सभी लोग का जो तम्बाकू का सेवन करते है यह जानना जरूरी है कि तम्बाकू से बनने वाले अलग अलग नशेड़ी चिजों का कितना घातक असर आपके शरीर पर अलग-अलग तरह से पड़ता है। तो चलिए आज हम आपको बताएंगे तम्बाकू से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में।

1. सिगरेट
हो सकता है सिगरेट का एक कश लगाकर आप दिन भर कामकाज के तनाव को भले ही कुछ पल भूल जाएं पर धूम्रपान की आपकी आदत शरीर के कई हिस्सों के लिए खतरे की घंटी है। इसमें मौजूद बेनजीन, टार, फोर्मलडीहाइड, आर्सेनिक, निकोटिन जैसे तत्व शरीर के लिए कई रोगों का आमंत्रण हो सकते हैं।
कई शोधों में यह प्रमाणित हो चुका है कि धूम्रपान से फेफड़ों का कैंसर, गले का कैंसर, मुंह, किडनी, ब्लैडर, पैंक्रियाज और पेट में कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक होता है। इसके अलावा अधिक धूम्रपान करने वालों को दिल के रोगों और स्ट्रोक का खतरा अधिक होता है। कार्बन और निकोटिन का मिश्रण शरीर में हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ाता है। सिगरेट में पाया जाने वाला टार फेफड़ों के कैंसर की बड़ी वजह है। धुएं से निकलने वाली कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड गैस मांसपेशियों, दिमाग और कोशिकाओं में पहुंचने वाली ऑक्सीजन को रोकती है जिससे हृदय, फेफड़ों और मस्तिष्क के काम करने में दिक्कत हो सकती है। गर्भावस्था में धूम्रपान या पैसिव स्मोकिंग (धूम्रपान करने वालों की संगत) गर्भपात, समय से पहले डिलिवरी, बच्चे का कम वजन आदि का कारण हो सकता है।

2. तम्बाकू, खैनी, गुटखा
जर्दा, सुर्ती और पान मसाले के नाम पर तंबाकू खाना अगर आपकी आदत का हिस्सा हो चुका है तो आपकी इस आदत को बदलने की कुछ बेहद जरूरी वजहें हो सकती हैं। तंबाकू में 28 किस्म के कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं जिनसे कैंसर हो सकता है। 
तंबाकू से ल्यूकोप्लाकिया का रिस्क अधिक रहता है जिसमें दांत और मसूड़े तेजी से सड़ते हैं। मुंह के कैंसर का यह बहुत बड़ा कारण है। गले का कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। तंबाकू में मौजूद निकोटिन हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा देता है जिससे दिल के रोगों की आशंका अधिक रहती है। भोजन करने की इच्छा खत्म कर देता है।

3. हुक्का
आज हुक्का न सिर्फ गांवों तक सीमित है बल्कि तमाम पब, होटलों और रेस्तरां में हुक्के (तंबाकू युक्त हुक्के) का चलन बढ़ा है। अगर आप इसे सिगरेट के विकल्प के रूप में देखते हैं तो सेहत पर इसका प्रभाव जानना जरूरी है।
हुक्का में सिगरेट की तरह ही टार, कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड, हेवी मेटल्स और कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व हैं जो कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ाते हैं। इससे मुंह का कैंसर, दिल के रोग और फेफड़ों के कैंसर की आशंका सबसे अधिक होती है। सिगरेट की तरह ही हुक्के का निकोटिन भी हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ाता है। गर्भावस्था के दौरान हुक्का पीने या हुक्का पीने वालों के दौरान मौजूद रहने से गर्भवती महिलाओं के गर्भ को नुकसान हो सकता है। हुक्का के पाइप से कई प्रकार के संक्रमणों का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। 

4. सिगार
हालांकि सिगार का प्रचलन हमारे यहां अपेक्षाकृत कम है पर कुछ लोग सिगार को सिगरेट की अपेक्षा बेहतर विकल्प मानते हैं। अगर आप भी ऐसा सोचते हैं तो जान लें कि तंबाकू का सेवन हर रूप में सेहत के लिए नुकसानदायक ही है। 
सिगार में मौजूद निकोटिन भले ही फेफड़ों में कम जाए लेकिन यह मुंह को सीधा प्रभावित करता है जिससे मुंह और गले के कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। इसमें बहुत अधिक मात्रा में कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं। शोधों की मानें तो सिगार में 60 से भी अधिक कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व पाए जाते हैं। दिल के रोगों का खतरा इससे अधिक होता है। इसके सेवन से धमनियों के ब्लॉकेज और दिल के दौरे का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। कम समय में ही दांत गिरने लगते हैं।

जैसा कि आपने जाना कि तंबाकू का सेवन किसी भी हाल में खतरनाक है इसलिए अगर चाह हो जिंदगी और अपनों से तो तम्बाकू से किनारा कर लें। वरना तम्बाकू आपकी जिंदगी को किनारे लगा देगा।

If you are in a setup where continuous fetal heart monitoring during labor is available, you may try a normal delivery. A single/double loop of cord around neck is not an absolute indication for caesarean section. However, an operative delivery may be required if there's non reassuring fetal heart rate during pains/ any other maternal morbidity.

Hypertension and High Blood Pressure

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Pune
Hypertension and High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a condition which occurs when the pressure of the blood flow through the arteries increases, resulting in intense pressure. Hypertension occurs when the systolic pressure (pressure at which the heart pumps blood) and the diastolic pressure (pressure at which the heart relaxes) is more than 140 and 90 respectively.

Symptoms of high blood pressure are: 

  1. Shortness of breath: If you have high blood pressure, then you may experience regular shortness of breath.
  2. Headaches: You may experience headaches on a regular basis.
  3. Weakness of the heart muscles: Hypertension results in a weak heart which may not be able to pump blood properly.
  4. Narrowing of blood vessels: Narrowing of blood vessels may lead to other complications such as failure of the kidneys, heart, and brain.
  5. Vision problems: It may lead to vision problems as blood vessels in the eye may be affected.

The various causes of blood pressure are: 

  1. Tobacco: If you smoke on a regular basis, you put yourself at an increased risk of getting affected by blood pressure.
  2. Lifestyle: Not exercising regularly, eating a sodium-rich diet are all factors which can increase the chances of hypertension.
  3. Age: The chances of getting affected by hypertension increase as you age.
  4. Weight: Being excessively obese also increases your risk of getting affected by hypertension.
  5. Diabetes: Being diabetic makes you more prone to getting affected by diabetes.
  6. Hyperthyroidism: If you have an overactive thyroid gland, then it may result in hypertension.

Hypertension may result in various health complications in the body such as:

  1. Aneurysm: This is a disorder of the blood vessels which causes the blood vessels to bulge and weaken.
  2. Heart attack: High blood pressure causes the arteries to harden and thicken which may lead to a heart attack.
  3. Metabolic syndrome: This syndrome refers to a group of complications such as high bad cholesterol levels and insulin levels in the body.
  4. Impaired brain functioning: It may also impair your ability to learn and impact your cognitive skills.

Calcium Tablets - Can They Be Bad For You?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, Post Graduate Program in Diabetology
General Physician, Delhi
Calcium Tablets -  Can They Be Bad For You?

For many people, popping a calcium tablet is something which has benefits, but at the same time does no harm. After all, who does not want to have strong bones and healthy teeth? The unfortunate part is that things are not so simple and a lot of research has debunked this.

Take, for example, the findings that when an old woman has calcium, the fracture rates are not all that different as compared to one who has not had calcium supplements. In addition to this, it was also found as part of a study that there is no positive impact on the mineral density of the hip.

As a matter of fact, calcium tablets and supplements can pose a significant risk, as well. While it is true that calcium does help in the effort of getting heart disease, an amount which is greater than the dietary limit does not. Actually, the excess calcium may increase the risk. This is true when it comes to calcium from supplements and not calcium which is absorbed by the way of food. So, what sort of additional risk is there? A study found that people who receive calcium from a tablet or another similar source have about a 140% greater chance of a heart attack!

How much is too much?

A thousand milligrammes of calcium in excess of the requirement on a daily basis is said to increase the risk of death from CVD or cardiovascular disease by about a fifth. Not a trivial amount, by any measure.

But why does this happen?

The key to answering this question comes from how the calcium is absorbed by the body. When calcium from food is eaten, the rate of it being released is a lot slower as compared to calcium from tablets. Also, when there is excess calcium, it is not absorbed and kept in reserve by the body but is excreted in the form of urine. So, this calcium going through the kidneys can cause some trouble there, as well!

Yes or No?

So, what is to be done in order to make sure one is having a sufficient amount of calcium? Well, there are a lot of sources and consuming things such as dairy products and fish, along with dark leafy vegetables are some great ways to get natural calcium. Only if a person has very low calcium levels should calcium tablets be consumed? It is well worth remembering that too much of a good thing is a bad thing! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
