1) Please understand that BP when it has been high for a while, causes heart muscle to thicken, your son's echo report shows that when it says mild LVH. This does not mean that you need to panic, it simply indicates that his BP requires proper management so that it can be controlled and brought in acceptable range. 2) 150/100 is still very high and in my opinion there are better antihypertensives like ARB'S, ACE inhibitors, Calcium channel blockers etc that are available and should be used in his case rather than Prolomet which is a beta blocker. So please consult your cardiologist for change of medication. 3) Prolomet which is a beta-blocker, causes slowing of heart rate. Normal heart rate should be between 60-100 bpm, if a patient is on beta-blockers it can be as low as 50bpm. If heart rate is any lower than this you should contact your treating cardiologist 4) Alongwith medication a change in lifestyle and food habits is absolutely must for BP control. So please ensure that he does not smoke or drink. He should exercise daily for 40 mins and eat a diet low in salty food and high in fruits, vegetables, proteins etc.

Hello- Sorry to say but, no you can't. It is quite possible that when you will perform sex, you can ejaculate even more early thn your masturbation ejaculation. If you any how manage to reach two minutes, still it will be not sufficient enough to satisfy any female on bed. Ejaculation is considered premature if it occurs before both partners are satisfied. But please note, it takes at least 15 minutes to induce orgasmic responses for most women. She deserves at least 15 minutes! You need to start medications to improve your ejaculation timing. You can recover.

It is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients at risk for these problems and to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack. Ramipril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently.

Ways To Help You Manage Diabetic Hypertension!

Dip.Diab, Fellowship Diabetology (Gold Medallist), MBBS
Diabetologist, Thane
Ways To Help You Manage Diabetic Hypertension!

Hypertension is commonly witnessed among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes as compared to those who do not have diabetes. Studies have revealed that arterial hypertension among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes is in the vicinity of 40-50 percent. What’s more, a patient suffering from hypertension and diabetes has an increased risk factor for certain other diseases such as left ventricular hypertrophy, dyslipidemia, elevated fibrinogen and hyperuricemia.

The measurement practice:
It is important to measure blood pressure in a person who is suffering from type 2 diabetes with or without hypertension and renal diseases. Blood pressure measurement should be repeated within a month, if the measurement is 150/190 mm Hg. BP should be measured within a couple, of months if BP is greater than 140/80 mm of Hg.

Lifestyle practices:
If a person is consistently suffering from type 2 diabetes and has a BP range of 140/80, the following life style practices should be maintained always:

  1. A daily exercise schedule: Hypertension coupled with diabetes can be a dangerous combination. To ensure that a person remains healthy it is imperative to maintain a daily exercise schedule for at least half an hour. Exercise consumes extra calories and helps a person maintain a steady blood-sugar level.
  2. Food habits: Food habit is yet another important criterion to maintain good health for a person suffering from diabetic hypertension. Avoiding starch, glucose, and food with high carbs should be a mandate. Refraining from processed food with a high density of condensed fat, sugar and oil will go a long way in maintaining good health. Consulting a nutritionist is the best way to go.
  3. Stress is yet another factor that drives diabetic hypertension: A person suffering from regular stress has a greater tendency to fall prey to cardiovascular and renal diseases. The only way to stay away from stress is to ensure that good lifestyle choice are made. A stress -free life can pay rich dividends to a person suffering from diabetic hypertension.

Drug treatment:
A doctor’s first line of treatment hovers around ACE inhibitors. A pregnant woman suffering from diabetic hypertension is typically prescribed a calcium blocker. This is an antihypertensive drug that helps to stabilize the pregnancy and keep complications at bay. For a person who is resisting to ACE Inhibitor, a doctor might subscribe angiotensin 2 receptor. If the BP is not reduced after the first line of treatment, a doctor adds a thiazide-related diuretic along with the ACE inhibitor to expedite the treatment process.

Even after a triple therapy if a person continues to suffer from high blood pressure, a doctor might prescribe an alpha-blocker, potassium blocker or a beta blocker.

Homeopathy For Forgetfulness / Memory Loss

Homeopathy For Forgetfulness / Memory Loss

Memory slips are aggravating, frustrating, and sometimes worrisome. When they happen more than they should, they can trigger fears of looming dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. there are many mundane—and treatable—causes of forgetfulness. Here are seven common ones and how can homeopathic treatment can help you.To know more about homeopathy and homeopathic treatment read more.....

Lack of sleep.

Not getting enough sleep is perhaps the greatest unappreciated cause of memory slips. Too little restful sleep can also lead to mood changes and anxiety, which in turn contribute to problems with memory.

Medications.

Tranquilizers, antidepressants, some blood pressure drugs, and other medications can affect memory, usually by causing sedation or confusion. That can make it difficult to pay close attention to new things. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you suspect that a new medication is taking the edge off your memory. As shown in the table below, alternatives are usually available.

*Medications* that may affect memory and possible substitutes
If you take these drug, ask about switching to one of these drugs:
1.paroxetine (Paxil) another antidepressant such as fluoxetine (Prozac) or sertraline (Zoloft), or a different type of antidepressant such as duloxetine (Cymbalta) or venlafaxine (Effexor)
2.cimetidine (Tagamet) a different type of heartburn drug, such as lansoprazole (Prevacid), omeprazole (Prilosec), or esomeprazole (Nexium)
3.oxybutynin (Ditropan) or tolterodine (Detrol, Detrusitol) other medications for an overactive bladder, such as trospium (Sanctura), solifenacin (Vesicare), or darifenacin (Enablex)
4.amitriptyline (Elavil), desipramine (Norpramin), or nortriptyline (Aventyl, Pamelor) another type of medication, depending on why your doctor has prescribed a tricyclic antidepressant (neuropathic pain, depression, etc.)

5.*captopril (Capoten)* a different type of ACE inhibitor, such as enalapril, lisinopril, or ramipril
cold or allergy medication containing brompheniramine, chlorpheniramine, or diphenhydramine loratadine (Claritin) or other non-sedating antihistamine
(Adapted from Improving Memory: Understanding age-related memory loss, a Harvard Medical School Special Health Report)

 

Underactive thyroid

A faltering thyroid can affect memory (as well as disturb sleep and cause depression, both of which contribute to memory slips). A simple blood test can tell if your thyroid is doing its job properly.

Alcohol.

Drinking too much alcohol can interfere with short-term memory, even after the effects of alcohol have worn off. Although “too much” varies from person to person, it’s best to stick with the recommendation of no more than two drinks per day for men and no more than one a day for women. One drink is generally defined as 1.5 ounces (1 shot glass) of 80-proof spirits, 5 ounces of wine, or 12 ounces of beer.

Stress and anxiety.

Anything that makes it harder to concentrate and lock in new information and skills can lead to memory problems. Stress and anxiety fill the bill. Both can interfere with attention and block the formation of new memories or the retrieval of old ones.

 

Depression.

Common signs of depression include a stifling sadness, lack of drive, and lessening of pleasure in things you ordinarily enjoy. Forgetfulness can also be a sign of depression—or a consequence of it.

If memory lapses are bugging you, it’s worth a conversation with your doctor to see if any reversible causes are at the root of the problem. Something like getting more sleep, switching a medication, or a stress reduction program could get your memory back on track.

Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome - Is Your Child Suffering From It?

Nephrologist, Delhi
Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome - Is Your Child Suffering From It?

As the name suggests, congenital nephrotic syndrome affects the kidneys of newborn babies. Though congenital means the disease must be present from birth, babies who develop nephrotic syndrome in the first three months are also said to suffer from this condition. This is a rare genetic disorder that is passed down from parents to their children. Boys are at a higher risk of suffering from this disorder than girls. The congenital nephrotic syndrome causes the kidneys to leak large amounts of protein into the baby’s urine. This can lead to swelling of the body tissues and a weakened immune system.

Some of the common symptoms of this disease include

  1. Low birth weight
  2. Lack of appetite
  3. Swelling of the body
  4. Foamy or frothy urine
  5. Lowered urine production
  6. Cough

Pregnant women are usually screened for this condition before the baby is born. The doctor will be looking for a placenta that is larger than normal in an ultrasound and high levels of alpha fetoprotein in amniotic fluid samples. If found; the doctor might ask for a genetic test to confirm the diagnosis.

Once the baby is born, he or she will show signs of fluid retention as the body begins to swell. Other signs your doctor will look out for are high blood pressure, signs of malnutrition and abnormal sounds from the heart and lungs. A urine analysis will also show high levels of protein in the urine though the overall protein levels in the body may be low. The doctor may also ask for a kidney biopsy in some cases to confirm the diagnosis.


Aggressive forms of treatment in the early stages of this disease can help control it. This may include antibiotics, blood pressure medication, ACE inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers to reduce protein leakage and diuretics to manage excess fluid build-up. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may also help reduce the amount of protein leaking into the urine. In addition, the doctor may advise you to limit fluid the baby’s fluid intake to control the swelling. As a last resort, the kidneys may need to be removed to prevent protein loss. This will be followed by dialysis or a kidney transplant.

If left unchecked, this disorder can lead to a number of complications including acute kidney failure, blood clots, infections and diseases related to malnutrition. It can also lead to the death of a baby in the first year of catching the infection or before his or her fifth birthday.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Nude Activities for Healthy Penis Skin

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Nude Activities for Healthy Penis Skin

Good, healthy penis skin makes a man's member appear much more appealing to a potential partner - and it's better for penis health as well, of course. There are many things that a man can do to attend to the health of his penis skin, including keeping it well moisturized and away from harsh chemicals and ingredients. But another step a man can take is one of the easiest - simply letting the penis air out. Engaging in simple activities in the nude can be a plus for healthy penis skin.

For centuries, experts have extolled the benefits of fresh air on general well-being, including its effect on skin health. In the 19th century, many people were proponents of "airbathing," which is simply letting the body experience the natural breezes and sunshine of the outdoors. It's believed that "airing out" the skin can have benefits in oxygenating the skin, improving blood circulation (which also benefits skin health) and allowing perspiration to remove waste products from the body into the air (rather than releasing them into clothing, where they then settle back down onto the skin). So allowing the penis skin to also air out, whether indoors or outside, can be beneficial.

Activities

Clearly, all a man has to do to air out the penis skin is walk around without clothing. But for those who want a little more activity while nude, the following are some options to consider. (Remember, with the penis exposed, some basic caution may need to be taken to avoid damage from overexposure to light, contact with objects, etc.)

- Clean the house in the buff. As long as a guy is careful with the vacuum cleaner hose and the cleaning fluids, there's no reason he can't make his abode tidier and more livable while letting his manhood get some fresh air. As an added bonus, many partners find watching a man engage in housework while naked to be very erotic - often leading to a reward for a job well done.

- Play badminton. If the backyard has a reliable privacy fence, get out the net, rackets and birdies and see how well two fun-loving partners can hit that shuttlecock. A couple of tips: Wearing sneakers may be a good idea to avoid falls. And don't stay outside for very long in strong sunlight, as penis skin burns easily.

- Or croquet. Pound a couple of poles into the ground, set up the wickets and then get the balls rolling. As with badminton, shoes and limited exposure to harsh sunlight are suggested.

- Exercise. Whether doing yoga stretches, lifting weights or spinning, exercising in the buff has a special feeling to it. The ancient Greeks did it all the time - and who's going to argue with the classics?

- Make music. Pick up that guitar that's been gathering dust or sit down at the piano and see what comes back to you. Since music is essentially all about vibrations, it's fun to see how the naked body experiences that vibrations and how it differs from when a person is clothed.

- Play poker. If all the players are nude, no one can be hiding any aces up their sleeves.

Spending time nude can benefit penis skin, but those benefits will increase if a guy also regularly uses a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) on his member. Penis skin needs to be appropriately moisturized to be healthy, so select a crème that contains both a high-end emollient (Shea butter is an excellent one) and a natural hydrator (vitamin E is a fine choice). Penis skin can be harmed by the oxidative stress that free radicals can bring. A crème with a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, can provide the kind of protection delicate skin requires.

COUGH : Major Problem Of Changing Weather "Cure By Homeopathy"

COUGH : Major Problem Of Changing Weather "Cure By Homeopathy"

What is a cough?

There are three phases to a cough reflex:

  • An inhalation (breathing in)
  • An increased pressure in the throat and lungs with the vocal cords closed
  • An explosive release of air when the vocal cords open, giving a cough its characteristic sound

If somebody coughs a lot, it can be a sign of a disease. Many coughs are caused by infectious diseases, like the common cold, but there are also non-infectious causes.

Coughs can be due to pollution/irritation, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), choking, chronic bronchitisasthma or emphysema, a tumor in the lung, heart failure, some drugs (e.g., ACE inhibitors), post-nasal drip, and smoking.

Classification of coughs

  • Acute cough - has a sudden onset and lasts up to 3 weeks

  • Subacute cough - persists for 3-8 weeks
  • Chronic cough - persists for over 8 weeks
  • Productive cough - a cough that brings stuff up, such as sputum
  • Dry cough - a cough that brings nothing up
  • Nocturnal cough - only occurs at night

Causes of coughs

The majority of coughs are caused by viruses and clear up without treatment.

Causes of acute (short-term) cough - in most cases, the infection is in the upper respiratory tract and affects the throat, this is known as a URTI/URI (upper respiratory tract infection). Examples include flu, the common cold, and laryngitis.

If it is an LRTI (lower respiratory tract infection), the lungs are infected, and/or the airways lower down from the throat (windpipe). Examples include bronchitis and pneumonia.

An acute cough can also be caused by hay fever.

Causes of chronic (long-term) cough - a chronic cough may be caused by smoking, mucus dripping down the throat from the back of the nose (nasal drip), GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), asthma, and some medications (e.g. ACE-inhibitors).

Chronic coughs in children are most often caused by asthma, but can also be from conditions like GERD.

Less common causes of chronic cough in adults include TB (tuberculosis, fungal infections of the lung, and lung cancer.

When to see a doctor

If a cough has persisted for 3 weeks without improvement, a doctor's advice should be sought. In most cases, there will not be anything serious underlying the cough, but in rare cases, a long-term cough can be a sign of something that needs treating, such as lung cancer or heart failure.

Other reasons to seek medical advice include:

Diagnosing a cough
 

If a doctor decides that a cough is caused by the common cold or flu, the general advice will be to rest, drink plenty of fluids, and let it run its course. In the majority of cases, such coughs clear up after 1-2 weeks.

A cough caused by a viral infection that persists for more than a couple of weeks will probably require medical attention.

The doctor may order some diagnostic tests, such as a chest X-ray, a sample of phlegm may be sent to a laboratory for analysis to determine what is causing the infection.

The patient may be asked to breathe in and out of a tube attached to a machine; this helps the doctor determine whether the airways have an obstruction (this test is called a spirometry), which is common in asthma or emphysema.

If asthma is diagnosed, the patient may be prescribed asthma medication.

Sometimes, a doctor may refer the patient to a respiratory specialist.

Treatments and home remedies for coughs

The best way to treat a cough caused by a viral infection is to let the immune system deal with it - generally, such coughs clear up on their own. According to the National Health Service, United Kingdom, a homemade remedy with honey and lemon is as good, if not better than most OTC products sold in pharmacies.

Treatments are mostly aimed at making the patient feel a little bit better and generally do not decrease the length of the cough.

Honey - it coats the throat, resulting in less irritation and possibly less coughing. Honey is a demulcent (something that soothes).

Cough medications - some may help associated symptoms, such as fever or a stuffy nose. However, there is no compelling evidence that cough medicines are effective in making the cough go away faster.but homoeopathy can reduce the suffering.

For small children, it is a good idea to talk to a doctor before giving OTC cough medicine. Some ingredients in cough medicines can be dangerous for small children.

HOMOEOPATHY DO BEST IN COUGH AND REDUCE THE SUFFERING WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECTS.
