Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. MASTURBATION is normal, natural and never unhealthy. Even animals do masturbate. As a human being, you are also an animal. Every animal has sexual instinct because they are designed to reproduce. Human being also has sexual instinct and therefore he needs to satisfy sexual instinct. Therefore, to satisfy sexual instinct, a man or woman, masturbates. In any case, masturbation is never unhealthy or will never affect your physical or sexual health or it cannot affect your future sex life and the ability to have children. Masturbation cannot affect your growth or cause pimples or cause hair fall or cause shrinkage of penis or loss of vital nutrients or cause problems in testis size or colour etc. Masturbation cannot increase your belly fat or cause obesity. You should try to reduce the masturbation frequency to thrice a week and continue masturbation. You can be sure; there are no side effects to masturbation if you are able to restrict it to thrice a week. Jogging and physical exercise are always good to keep you fit and stop worrying about sex and allied thinking. I suggest online sex counseling and therapy. Take care.

If im your treating doctor I can help you regarding this, if you can use zinc dose of not more than 40mg that should be safe for you once or twice a day is ok. I hope you should be knowing its uses but again breifly I should explain in few words, 1) in acute diarrhoea in children, in acute respiratory diseases, to boost your immunity. High doses above the recommended amounts might cause fever, coughing, stomach pain, fatigue, and many other problems. Avoid the use dose of tab not more than 100mg unless untill your doctor advice you.

You need medication only when your bp is high. In some people, doctor suggests to take it daily. You need to keep a check on your blood pressure. If it gets normal, well and good, if not, then you need the medicine everyday.

Zinc Deficiency - How To Detect It?

Zinc Deficiency - How To Detect It?

Zinc deficiency is one epidemic that people are mostly unaware of. As per the data shared by World Health Organization, around 31% of the world population is suffering from zinc deficiency. The problem is also ranked 5th in the leading factors that cause several diseases. It is also a primary reason why underdeveloped nations suffer from high mortality rate as zinc deficiency is associated with child pneumonia and diarrhea.

Every person, young or old, needs to have a regular intake of zinc for a healthy life, which it is known as an essential nutrient. It is also present in every cell, tissue, bone and fluid in the human body; zinc is especially prevalent in male semen and prostate glands.

Common Symptoms Of Zinc Deficiency

Unfortunately, millions of people suffering from zinc deficiency are unaware of their condition. However, looking out for certain key indicators can help in identifying the problem before it becomes severe. Here are the common symptoms of zinc deficiency that everyone must look out for:

  1. Poor Neurological Function- Zinc is an absolute necessity for neuropsychologic performance and growth. Low levels of zinc lead to attention disorders in infants, which may persist till the adulthood. But, it doesn’t mean you will start pumping your kids with an overdose of zinc. It has been found that zinc is absorbed best with other nutrients and especially when taken with whole foods.
  2. Weak Immunity- Your immune function works best when it has an adequate amount of zinc. It is vital for the growth of T-Cell and differentiating white blood cells to keep diseases at bay. Zinc is also necessary for the structural component of the hormone receptors. They contribute exponentially to have a healthy and balanced immune function.
  3. Diarrhea & Leaky Gut- Impaired immunity causes zinc deficiency diarrhea, which can become a persistent health problem. Every year diarrhea affects nearly 2 million children worldwide, and most of them are suspected to have a zinc deficiency and bacterial infection. Leaky gut, also called intestinal permeability can lead to a slew of health problems like skin allergies, thyroid problems, and nutrient malabsorption.

Zinc Rich Foods You Must Include In Your Diet

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms shared above, then you might be suffering from the zinc deficiency. To improve the level of zinc in your body, you can either take all natural zinc supplements. But, supplements usually contain several forms of zinc like zinc sulfate, zinc acetate and more. Thus, it is better to include the below-shared foods in your diet, which contain a high amount of zinc:

  1. Pumpkin seeds –?1/2 cup: 8.4 mg
  2. Lamb?– 4 oz: 5.2 mg
  3. Cashews –?1/2 cup: 3.8 mg
  4. Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) –?1 cup cooked: 2.5 mg
  5. Mushrooms –?1 cup cooked: 1.9 mg
  6. Chicken –? 4 oz: 1.6 mg
  7. Kefir or Yogurt? – 1 cup: 1.4 mg
  8. Spinach –?1 cup cooked: 1.4 mg
  9. Cocoa powder –? 1 Tbsp: 0.4 mg

Just eat good sources of Vitamin D like cereals, dairy products etc. If you take non veg then fish and eggs. Etc. And spend some time in sun in early morning. Don't start medicines right away.
