Hi, I am Suffering ejaculation problem since three or four months and I am a diabetes patient so please advise / medication for me

Dear Concerned Premature ejaculation can occur in diabetes, more so in type 1 than in type 2 diabetes. It is very difficult to get a good definition of premature ejaculation, as the experience is very subjective, but certainly 30 seconds would fall into all definitions. With regards to treatment, some drugs like b-blockers can cause it, and so if you are on this, then maybe discuss an alternative with your doctor. Regarding treatment options, there are behavioral treatments and medications which can be used. I would suggest seeing a sexual therapist to look first at the behavioral treatments, rather than the medications, as medications are not an ideal long term solution.

Diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems. With the correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications By keeping your blood glucose level in a healthy range through meal planning, physical activity, and medications, you can avoid long-term complications of diabetes. These complications develop over many years and they all relate to how blood glucose levels can affect blood vessels. Over time, high blood glucose can damage the body’s blood vessels, both tiny and large. Damage to your tiny blood vessels causes microvascular complications; damage to your large vessels causes macrovascular complications. Microvascular Complications: Eye, Kidney, and Nerve Disease You have small blood vessels that can be damaged by consistently high blood glucose over time. Damaged blood vessels don’t deliver blood as well as they should, so that leads to other problems, specifically with the eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Eyes: Blood glucose levels out of range for a long period of time can cause cataracts and/or retinopathy in the eyes. Both can cause loss of vision. To avoid eye problems associated with diabetes, keep your blood glucose within range and have yearly eye check-ups that include a dilated eye examination with an eye doctor to monitor your eye health. Kidneys: If untreated, kidney disease (also called diabetic nephropathy) leads to impaired kidney function, dialysis and/or kidney transplant. Uncontrolled (or poorly controlled) diabetes can cause the kidneys to fail; they’ll be unable to clean the blood properly. To prevent diabetic nephropathy, you should be tested every year for microalbuminuria, which is a condition that’s an early sign of kidney problems. The test measures how much protein is in the urine. This test is easily done with a urine sample. When the kidneys begin to have problems, they start to release too much protein. Medications can help prevent further damage, once microalbuminuria is diagnosed. Nerves: Nerve damage caused by diabetes is also known as diabetic neuropathy. The tiny blood vessels “feed” your nerves, so if the blood vessels are damaged, then the nerves will eventually be damaged as well. In type 2 diabetes, some people will already show signs of nerve damage when they’re diagnosed. This is an instance where getting the blood glucose level under control can prevent further damage. There are various forms of diabetic neuropathy: peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is the most common form of nerve damage, and it most often affects the nerves going to the hands and feet. People who have had type 2 diabetes for a very long time and who haven't done well managing their blood glucose may lose sensation in their feet. They may also experience pain, weakness, or tingling. One serious complication of diabetic peripheral neuropathy in the feet is that people may not realize when they have a sore on their foot. The sore can become infected, the infection can spread, and left untreated, the foot may need to be amputated to keep the infection from spreading more. It is important to have regular foot exams done by a podiatrist, but you should also have your healthcare provider examine your feet every time you have an office visit. Macrovascular Complications: The Heart, Brain, and Blood Vessels Type 2 diabetes can also affect the large blood vessels, causing plaque to eventually build up and potentially leading to a heart attack, stroke or vessel blockage in the legs (peripheral vascular disease). To prevent heart disease and stroke as a result of diabetes, you should manage your diabetes well, but you should also make heart-healthy choices in other areas of your life: don’t smoke, keep your blood pressure under control, and pay attention to your cholesterol. It is important to have your cholesterol checked annually. Your doctor should check your blood pressure every office visit. Also at every office visit, the doctor should check the pulse in your feet to make sure there is proper circulation. Type 2 diabetes comes with certain short- and long-term complications, but if you maintain good blood glucose control, you can avoid them.

Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) is a condition in which your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. Hyperthyroidism can accelerate your body's metabolism significantly, causing sudden weight loss, a rapid or irregular heartbeat, sweating, and nervousness or irritability. Several treatment options are available if you have hyperthyroidism. Doctors use anti-thyroid medications and radioactive iodine to slow the production of thyroid hormones. Sometimes, treatment of hyperthyroidism involves surgery to remove all or part of your thyroid gland. Although hyperthyroidism can be serious if you ignore it, most people respond well once hyperthyroidism is diagnosed and treated. Symptoms Hyperthyroidism can mimic other health problems, which may make it difficult for your doctor to diagnose. It can also cause a wide variety of signs and symptoms, including: Sudden weight loss, even when your appetite and the amount and type of food you eat remain the same or even increase Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) — commonly more than 100 beats a minute — irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) or pounding of your heart (palpitations) Increased appetite Nervousness, anxiety and irritability Tremor — usually a fine trembling in your hands and fingers Sweating Changes in menstrual patterns Increased sensitivity to heat Changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of your neck Fatigue, muscle weakness Difficulty sleeping Skin thinning Fine, brittle hair Older adults are more likely to have either no signs or symptoms or subtle ones, such as an increased heart rate, heat intolerance and a tendency to become tired during ordinary activities. Medications called beta blockers, which are used to treat high blood pressure and other conditions, can mask many of the signs of hyperthyroidism.

Hi, I have burning sensation in my feet. What is the reason behind it? I am not diabetic. My age is 42 years.
A burning sensation in your feet may be caused by nerve damage in the legs, also called neuropathy. Although many medical conditions can cause burning feet, diabetes is the most common. Most burning feet treatments focus on preventing further nerve damage and reducing pain There are many who experience a burning sensation on their feet and have been heard complaining that their feet are on fire. Causes of burning sensation in feet There are many reasons for experiencing this sensation, which can even be painful for many. Often it is due to a nerve damage, or neuropathy, caused by diabetes. In many people with neuropathy, the nerves of the legs are the first to become damaged. These nerves become hyperactive and sensitive to touch; they send pain signals to the brain even in the absence of a wound. The burning sensation on the feet can range from mild to the point of disabling the person from carrying out normal activities. In addition to pain, some people experience a tingling sensation and numbness too! Some Medical Conditions cause burning feet Although diabetes and alcohol abuse are the most common causes of leg neuropathy, several other medical conditions have been known to cause the same. These include kidney diseases, vitamin deficiency and hypothyroidism, among several others. Infections and inflammations of the feet are also known to cause neuropathy. Some people experience burning sensation on their feet a few weeks after a bariatric surgery. This could be a result of mal absorption of vitamin B after a gastric bypass.

A Stent Is Not a Cure A stent does not cure heart disease. It may save your life by allowing blood to flow where it needs to go, but it is not a cure. Heart disease is caused by atherosclerosis or the build-up of the fatty substance called plaque within your arteries. Atherosclerosis is a process that happens throughout our lives. But you can take care of your stent and reduce your risk of needing more stents in the future by developing the following heart-healthy habits: Eating a healthy diet, Taking medications as prescribed, Becoming more physically active, Not smoking, Maintaining a healthy weight, Treating other diseases, for example, diabetes and high blood pressure, and Reducing stress. And, don’t forget to keep follow-up appointments with your doctor.

What causes hashimoto thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery

Hashimoto's disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's functions. Inflammation from Hashimoto's disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto's disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It primarily affects middle-aged women but also can occur in men and women of any age and in children. Doctors test your thyroid function to help detect Hashimoto's disease. Treatment of Hashimoto's disease with thyroid hormone replacement usually is simple and effective.
