Erectile Dysfunction (Impotence) and Diabetes

 

Hello friends,

Thanks for joining me again on lybrate And I hope my previous videos are very helpful to you for understanding your disease and for personal education about your physical fitness. Today, I’m going to touch a very taboo topic, a topic which is always discussed under wraps the topic of diabetes and impotence. Impotence is not about sterility. Sterility and impotence are two different things, impotence is the inability of a partner to satisfy its partner on sexual basic, sterility is the difficulty in the ability to have production, reproduction and that is a very important topic that I’m going to discuss today diabetes and impotence. Well, a lot of my patients of diabetes always have a query that doctor, how is diabetes going to affect my sex life, well my answer to you is yes diabetes is going to affect your sex life is not one but many ways. first of all diabetes in itself is a problem that leads to nerve dysfunction and in spite of getting stimulated some people in diabetes in later stages who got diabetes uncontrolled for very long, they start to develop a problem by the name of erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is a problem in which after maximal stimulation a man is not able to have a proper erection and this problem actually comes up out of the nervous system problems that happen because of the uncontrolled blood sugar level well, don’t get me wrong I don’t want to imply here that only diabetes is the reason because of people develop erectile dysfunction but diabetes is a very important reason because of which people develop erectile dysfunction. The second problem that people with diabetes may develop because they can have an effect on their sex life is about premature ejaculation.

Premature ejaculation is the lack of stamina in continuing the sexual act and the culmination of the sexual act by ejaculation which is premature and this means that a patient is not able to have a sexual satisfaction with his partner and neither does the partner achieve complete satisfaction because the male partner has ejaculated and there is no further stamina left for the continuation of the sexual act. I don’t understand that these people who have these problems of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation they are more concerned about the sexual factor affecting them rather than diabetes that is affecting them but they have to understand that the core problem is the uncontrolled blood sugar, if they are able to control their blood sugar then probably they will be able have the cure and a solution to both these problems. Also, the second thing that is very baffling to me is the fact that most of the people who are suffering from these kind of sexual problems they go to quacks and people who are unqualified to the solution of their problems. well, I believe that if you confy in your doctor and go to a doctor who is qualified to handle this problem then probably you will get a better solution and a better cure of your problem rather than going to somebody who is going to provide you obscure desi medicine who doesn’t even have the qualification to cure it and in spite of that the people are streaming to these unqualified people rather than the doctor who may provide them the scientific solution to their problem ,having said that I will also like to recommend you that you can also make use of the online consults that are available on lybrate which will help you at least get a customize solution to your problem without having to go to people who are going to mess up your life because they don’t themselves know that what they are going to give as a medicine to you so don’t go to those people who are not qualified that’s my humble submission to you and I believe you will enjoy a very healthy life ahead of you and try to understand that it is actually the control of blood sugar that is paramount in the control of your sex life thank you very much and thanks for joining it.

What You Need To Know About Thyroid And Pregnancy?

 

Hello friends,

Welcome back joining me on Lybrate once again, and today I am going to discuss about a very important topic for which I have received so many queries that I decided I am going to make a video on this topic and this very important and significant that is afflicting a lot of people in our society is thyroid and pregnancy. Well lot of women, who are suffering from thyroid in any form with a hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and lot of these women are in the child bearing age so it is not surprising that these women they develop conception during the time that they have got hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism or for matter of fact they are discovered to be a patient of hypo or hyperthyroidism during the time that they can ecologist for the first time asks them to get thyroids checked well thyroid is a very important endocrine organ in our body which regulates a lot of functions of our body and at the same point of time the thyroid harmones are very important harmones for the development of child and the most importan phase of that period for that development is the first trimester of pregnancy which is the first 12 weeks that the women are pregnant because this is the period of time of the first trimester when the maximum organ formation develops. In fact the entire organ development of the child, it develops in the first trimester of pregnancy and it is only natural that we have to understand that if the thyroid is not controlled during that period then the child might have left many congenital malformations may be having a lot of mental disturbances when the child is born. So it is very important for you to understand that if you want your child to be healthy mentally as well as physically you have to keep the thyroid under control.

I also would like to mention a very important fact that the levels at which the TSH is monitored during the pregnancy are different from the levels during which it is monitored the non-pregnancy state, in fact, a very strict control of thyroid is necessary during the time of pregnancy and if that is not maintained then not only congenital malformation but there could be also imminent fetal loss which can happen at any of the trimesters of pregnancy. In fact, conception it self-becomes a problem when the thyroid is not under control. And today we are into an era that a lot of females they are developing this problem, are facing this problem that they are not able to conceive in time and are very disturbed and agitated and their families are really frustrated because they are not able to conceive. Well that matter of fact, you need to check your thyroid and keep it under control. French thyroid can be controlled only by one pill in a day and needs to be monitored only. Initially on 21 day basis so at every three weeks you need to get you thyroids levels checked and if they are not under control there has to be a fluctuation of the thyroid hormones in the body and that is why we have to upgrade you medicine or downgrade the dose of your medicine and that the only things we doctors do to keep your thyroids under control. Because essentially what we are doing with your thyroid is that we are providing supplementation of the deficient hormones in the body or we are making the thyroid get itself under by giving it a pill by which it doesn’t hyperfunction in cases of hyperthyroidism so only by one medicine by a day therapy you can do wonders with your body and you can save the life of your unborn child and give them a healthy and very nice physical fitness when they are born. So please keep your thyroids under control. And remember that thyroid is not a frivolous thing especially during the time of pregnancy. I hope this video enlightens you and you can get back to me on Lybrate through a very important channel of online consults which has been offered by Lybrate. You don’t have to be physically present with me and you can take my advise simply logging into Lybrate and finding out the name of Dr Hanish Gupta

How alcohol affects liver and metabolism?<br/><br/>Hello, friends, my name is Dr. Hanish Gupta. I...

How alcohol affects liver and metabolism?

Hello, friends, my name is Dr. Hanish Gupta. I am a General Physician working in Delhi at various major hospitals and having my own clinic by the name of Life Aid in Mayur Vihar Phase one. Today, I have come to discuss with you very important topic of the bad effects of alcohol on our liver.

We all know that liver is the primary organ in the body that deals with metabolism and metabolism is the process by which we digest food, we assimilate it in our body and also eliminate the toxins that come with it. Fortunately for us liver is the organ that takes care of all these toxins. All the bad things that collect in our body because of our bad eating habits or drinking habits, the liver is the organ that helps us eliminate those toxins and keeps us healthy. Alcohol is one such toxin.

We may have a good time with alcohol drinking with our friends whether socially or by our own conception but at the end of the day alcohol is and will remain a very important toxin in the body that needs to be eliminated. Liver is the organ that does that. Unfortunately some people they don't realize the delicate balance of alcohol and liver if we take alcohol in moderation then liver gets the ample time to eliminate it from the body and metabolize it but if we keep on taking it regularly and in very high amount then liver becomes overburdened in eliminating. This toxin out of the body what happens is that liver starts to store the excess alcohol because it does not have enough time or power to eliminate. It is the excess alcohol that starts to get collected in the liver cells and because of this excess accumulation of alcohol in the liver cells they start to bloat up and the first stage of liver damage begins.

At this stage if a person who has started to become dependent on alcohol stops taking alcohol then all the bad effects of alcohol they get reversed as far as the liver mousse but if unfortunately somebody continues to take alcohol despite the good advice of his doctor then liver starts to undergo permanent damage and may become shrunken in a very short span of time. This is the problem with liver once it starts shrinking the permanent damage has already been done which is known cirrhosis of liver which is actually an irreversible damage to the live.

So friends my nice advice to you is that you want to take alcohol always remember the delicate balance between alcohol intake and your liver metabolism. If you go by this principle then you will have a very healthy life which is going to be too thanks for listening in. I hope that you connect with me again on liberate online consults or have the sweet opportunity of visiting my clinic at Delhi. Thank you very much.

Diabetes is the major cause of Kidney Disease!<br/><br/>Hello friends welcome back to Lybrate I a...

Diabetes is the major cause of Kidney Disease!

Hello friends welcome back to Lybrate I am Dr Hanish Gupta and today I will be talking about diabetes and kidney diseases. Friends all over the world a large number of patients are started to have dialysis, a large number of patients are undergoing kidney failure. This hasn't happened suddenly but has happened because of 2 common causes known as diabetes and blood pressure. Diabetes forms the biggest cause of Kidney failure and kidney diseases and today for any stage of kidney illness diabetes is the number one cause for the people of USA. India is also fast approaching that scenario.

People believe that in diabetes when they get their kidney function test done and it comes out to be normal they think everything is fine which isn't the case. Kidney starts the sign of deterioration with diabetes very early on and it is very important for the Dr to detect if there is any kidney issue or not. The test required here is the urine test. In very early stage of diabetes there is microalbuminuria in urine which is the passage of protein from the body in very small amount, that is the result stage of kidney failure. That is also the right time to save further complications of kidney infection.

People keep in getting their kidney function test and believe their kidney is fine on the basis of that. But it is actually the urine ACR done by standardized methods in laboratories that gives the right diagnosis. The important thing is that not only test but also the signs and symptoms that tell us about the kidney condition. People believe that it is the amount of urine passage that decides this factor but the most important sign is swelling over the body. Simple signs like loss of appetite can also detail about kidney failure.When kidney has started deteriorating patient observed a tremendous amount of relief in sugar control, thus patient believes that diabetes condition is improving but that is not the case it is actually kidney deterioration that brings down the sugar level. The reason for this is  that insulin is eliminated from the kidney and when kidney is undergoing deterioration the time period for which insulin remains in the body increases which is called as increase in the half life of insulin. So with that points keep your kidneys healthy and keep diabetes under control.

You can visit my clinic or contact me through Lybrate.

Knowing thyroid problems<br/><br/>Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Hanish Gupta and I m here today ...

Knowing thyroid problems

Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Hanish Gupta and I’m here today to discuss with you the important effects of thyroid gland on human body.
We have appropriately titled this video as three minute thyroid consult because I’m going to explain you within three minutes that what is thyroid gland and how it affects the human body.
Thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland which is located in front of your windpipe just like this. This is the thyroid gland. Thyroid gland despite its small size is a very very important gland for the human body because it controls the growth and the energy processes of the human body that is why the effect of this hormone has a far reaching effect on the entire functioning of the human body.

Now I will talk about the excess and the deficiency of this hormone in the human body which needs two conditions called hypothyroidism when there is a deficiency of this hormone in the body and hyperthyroidism when there is an excess of this hormone in the human body. The most common condition of hypothyroidism or deficiency of this hormone in the human body is hashimoto thyroiditis in which the thyroid gland looks like this. This is a condition in which all the energy processes of the human body, they become slower. There is weight gain, there is slowness of the heart rate or bradycardia there is swelling of the human body, there is hair fall, there is infertility or menstrual problems in females, there is depression, and most importantly all these things they collect together and become a very big problem for the patient.

However, the help is nearby because this condition can be treated with taking only one pill on daily basis. Similarly, a condition in which there is an excess of this hormone in the human body is known as hyperthyroidism and the most common cause of hyperthyroidism is Grave’s disease in which the thyroid gland looks like this. This is a condition in which all the energy processes of the human body, they become fast, there is faster heart rate, there is tremors or tremulousness, there is irritability of mood, there is weight loss, there is lot of other things that indicate that the patient is having faster energy but of no use because he’s having this condition for a long time and this condition can also be treated by taking only one pill, which can even be stopped later in life.

So, friends I hope that I have been able to dispel your doubts about thyroid hormone and I believe that you would love to come back to me on Lybrate for an online opinion or at my clinic at life aid clinic located in Delhi.
Thanks for watching and keep healthy!

1. If a person have diabetes how much sugar can he eat per day. 2.How much salt can a bp patient eat per day.

Internal Medicine Specialist, Delhi
1.
If a person have diabetes how much sugar can he eat per day. 2.How much salt can a bp patient eat per day.
A person should eat only that much amount of sugar which is as per his caloric recommendation which takes into account the energy requirement of a person. Which basically mean that a person involved in physical labour is recommended to eat more carbohydrates (read sugar) as compared to a person involved in desktop job As per WHO recommendation - daily salt intake should be 5gms salt or less.

First time TSH level was 6.7. But few days earlier tested in Kolkata then TSH level is 2.2. What should she do right now?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Internal Medicine Specialist, Delhi
First time TSH level was 6.7.
But few days earlier tested in Kolkata then TSH level is 2.2.
What should she do right ...
TSH value is 6.7 and its definitely out of range. If report had been greater than 10 - then I would have recommended you to start treatment with thyroid replacement medicines straight-away but the guideline for treatment in your case where TSH is less than 10 is to correlate with another test with the name of ANTI-TPO. If ANTI-TPO is also way above range then you definitely need treatment for hypothyroidism.

Dear Doctor, Good Morning! What is Thyroid? Why it happens? Causes & Cures? what are the remedies? Any medical help?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Internal Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Thyroid is a hormonal organ. Hormones are signals in our body which effect various vital processes of the body. You can link them to traffic lights for the smooth and safe flow of traffic in the body. Unfortunately due to several known and unknown reasons, some hormonal organs like thyroid start to underperform or over perform leading to hypo or hyper function respectively. When we prescribe medicine for hypothyroid patients - we just provide supplementation of deficient hormone in the body. We currently have no medicine to cure the thyroid gland - we just have medicine to fulfil the hormone that was supposed to be manufactured by the thyroid gland. Since the requirement is daily - that is why the medicine is given daily. Since the requirement is lifelong- thats why the medicine is lifelong. The scope of open consult is limited to only advice and not prescription - kindly approach through private consult for prescription.

There can be two possibilities of your issue. First possibility may be that you are suffering from uncontrolled blood sugar. If your blood sugars are uncontrolled then you will have frequent Urination which is a common complaint of all uncontrolled diabetics. The second possibility can be of prostrate problem. If you have prostrate trouble that will also lead to frequent urination. And other symptoms like urgency and nocturia (frequent urination in the night)

Your sugar levels are uncontrolled but they are not touching any panic value. So you needn’t worry as much as you are worrying right now and the only remedy in your condition would be to alter your medicines for the best benefit. You need to understand that we are always in a dynamic state of sugar control meaning by which no single medicine can be prescribed for life as the sugar levels keep on fluctuating in the body. I would recommend you to seek a private consult with me.

Hello friends,

Welcome back joining me on Lybrate once again, and today I am going to discuss about a very important topic for which I have received so many queries that I decided I am going to make a video on this topic and this very important and significant that is afflicting a lot of people in our society is thyroid and pregnancy. Well lot of women, who are suffering from thyroid in any form with a hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and lot of these women are in the child bearing age so it is not surprising that these women they develop conception during the time that they have got hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism or for matter of fact they are discovered to be a patient of hypo or hyperthyroidism during the time that they can ecologist for the first time asks them to get thyroids checked well thyroid is a very important endocrine organ in our body which regulates a lot of functions of our body and at the same point of time the thyroid harmones are very important harmones for the development of child and the most importan phase of that period for that development is the first trimester of pregnancy which is the first 12 weeks that the women are pregnant because this is the period of time of the first trimester when the maximum organ formation develops. In fact the entire organ development of the child, it develops in the first trimester of pregnancy and it is only natural that we have to understand that if the thyroid is not controlled during that period then the child might have left many congenital malformations may be having a lot of mental disturbances when the child is born. So it is very important for you to understand that if you want your child to be healthy mentally as well as physically you have to keep the thyroid under control.

I also would like to mention a very important fact that the levels at which the TSH is monitored during the pregnancy are different from the levels during which it is monitored the non-pregnancy state, in fact, a very strict control of thyroid is necessary during the time of pregnancy and if that is not maintained then not only congenital malformation but there could be also imminent fetal loss which can happen at any of the trimesters of pregnancy. In fact, conception it self-becomes a problem when the thyroid is not under control. And today we are into an era that a lot of females they are developing this problem, are facing this problem that they are not able to conceive in time and are very disturbed and agitated and their families are really frustrated because they are not able to conceive. Well that matter of fact, you need to check your thyroid and keep it under control. French thyroid can be controlled only by one pill in a day and needs to be monitored only. Initially on 21 day basis so at every three weeks you need to get you thyroids levels checked and if they are not under control there has to be a fluctuation of the thyroid hormones in the body and that is why we have to upgrade you medicine or downgrade the dose of your medicine and that the only things we doctors do to keep your thyroids under control. Because essentially what we are doing with your thyroid is that we are providing supplementation of the deficient hormones in the body or we are making the thyroid get itself under by giving it a pill by which it doesn’t hyperfunction in cases of hyperthyroidism so only by one medicine by a day therapy you can do wonders with your body and you can save the life of your unborn child and give them a healthy and very nice physical fitness when they are born. So please keep your thyroids under control. And remember that thyroid is not a frivolous thing especially during the time of pregnancy. I hope this video enlightens you and you can get back to me on Lybrate through a very important channel of online consults which has been offered by Lybrate. You don’t have to be physically present with me and you can take my advise simply logging into Lybrate and finding out the name of Dr Hanish Gupta

If the glucose drip was inserted and by mistake the nurse or the hospital staff took the blood sample from the same arm where the glucose was being infused, then the blood sugar reading which was reported was incorrect and cannot qualify for your diagnosis. Incase you are doubtful about your status - get a fresh fasting and PP test done. You can also rely on HbA1C REPORT for better advise.

Agar aapki Sugar levels controlled hai - to yeh sahi hai! Nahi to aapko test karana chahiye aur apni dawa ko change karana chahiye.

There is no research that supports or promotes this logic. Hence don't be misled by this information.
