I smoke around 5 to 6 cigarettes daily. I want to quit smoking but can not help the urge to smoke. And I do not feel much active feel lazy all times and also lost stamina having short breath. What can I do to improve in all these aspects?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Testosterone Hormone

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Testosterone Hormone

Testosterone is a powerful hormone, with the ability to control sex drive, regulate sperm production, promote muscle mass, increase energy, and even influence human behavior (such as aggression and competitiveness). It’s no wonder that a decrease in testosterone would cause quite a stir. However, it is a natural part of aging.

In the Womb

Testosterone plays an important role in shaping the developing fetus during pregnancy. It drives the development of the male reproductive system. Testosterone also masculinizes the brain.testosterone levels have to fall within a very narrow margin in order for the fetal brain to be healthy. High levels of fetal testosterone may be linked to autism.low levels of fetal testosterone may boost your chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease later in life.

Adolescence to Early Adulthood

Testosterone levels are at their highest during adolescence and early adulthood. The first physical signs of testosterone, or androgens, in the body are apparent during puberty. A boy’s voice changes, his shoulders broaden, and his facial structure becomes more masculine. But as men get older, their testosterone levels decline about 1 percent per year after age 30.

Male   Female  
Age: T Level (ng/dL): Age: T Level (ng/dL):
0-5 months 75-400 0-5 months 20-80
6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20 6 mos.-9 yrs. <7-20
10-11 yrs. <7-130 10-11 yrs. <7-44
12-13 yrs. <7-800 12-16 yrs. <7-75
14 yrs. <7-1,200 17-18 yrs. 20-75
15-16 yrs. 100-1,200 19+ yrs. 8-60
17-18 yrs. 300-1,200    
19+ yrs. 240-950    
Avg. Adult Male 270-1,070 Avg. Adult Female 15-70
30+ yrs. -1% per year

Testosterone and Aging

low testosterone levels can cause changes in sexual function, including:

  • reduced sexual desire, or low libido
  • fewer spontaneous erections
  • impotence (erectile dysfunction)
  • infertility
  • Other signs of decreased testosterone levels include:

  • changes in sleep patterns
  • emotional changes, such as low self-confidence or lack of motivation
  • physical changes, like increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density

The normal range of testosterone levels in healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

Other Possibilities

While the symptoms described here are considered a normal part of aging, they could also be signs of several underlying factors. These include:

  • a reaction to certain medications
  • thyroid gland disorders
  • depression
  • excessive alcohol use                                                                                 
  •  
  • the best time of day to have a blood sample taken for a testosterone test is around 8 a.m.

Hi Doctor, I am a boy of 22 years! Since childhood I was very coward and may be because of lack of outdoor activities I fell into homosexuality Trust me, I hate that stuff and want to come out from that under any circumstances. I am never into ass sex. Also I have stopped having sex in real. Thing with me is that I only gets attracted towards hot looking guys. How can I stop it? Also, my parents are looking forward for my marriage to a girl. I am very much worried about my & her life. I cannot share this with anyone around & so it falls me into depression day-by-day. I had been to a prostitute for testing my manhood, where I really failed. This made me feel very depressed. My dick just slept down when it was in her vagina without any ejaculation. Is there any medicine which can at least satisfy a girl and give her sexual pleasure? Any help/advise from you will be appreciated!

Dear lybrate user, marriage is not just about satisfying your girl sexually. Sex is one essential part of married life, but there is much more in marriage beyond sex. Firstly, I think it would be very important for you to understand your own sexuality. If you are getting attracted towards guys then you might be a gay. To assess yourself for this, you need to consult a counsellor/sexologist, who will help you to understand your sexual inclination and the causes and consequences. Secondly, please understand that we all have our own sexual preferences. Being gay is not a crime, though in india, it is not accepted in the eyes of law. Instead of trying to change or denying your sexual preference, try to understand your real feelings and accept them. If you remain in denial, you wil be dissatisfied. If you marry any girl, without really understanding your sexual preferences, you will not be able to make her happy. Going to prostitues for trying your" manhood" can be very dangerous. Instead, take some professional help. The counsellor/sexologist will help you to understand your needs and will also help you to deal with your parental pressure. Please do not take decision to get married under parental pressure. Seek professional at the earliest.

Dear , you are probably disappointed. You must be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings symptoms like suicidal intention. But these symptoms are short lived. One or two counseling sessions will be good for you. Take care.

Better to go his home and talk to him personally. Do not argue and do not make comments on his behavior. Just talk like a good friend. First you respect his age and ask what I follow sir. Ask his permission and advices in all aspects. Then his ego satisfied then he will suggest some of the methods. How to overcome from the problems. He is aged person. He has some ego problems and want to command others. He wants to maintain supreme in all the aspects. It is very easy to handle this type of persons. Better to follow him and ask in all aspects his advices. Better to go his home with your wife. After he much impressed. Take some sweets and fruits. Present him. Talk like a child before him. Do not be depressed. There is way in all the problems. Cannt but positions we should bend according to situational demands. It is not decreased yourself. It is very intellectual one. So follow my advice. Take further steps based on my report. Ok best of luck. My best wishes.

Dear lybrate user. There are no short cuts in weight loss. No diet can help you unless you find time for aerobic physical exercise. One hour aerobic physical exercise with low fat diet can help you reduce weight at the rate of around 2 kg per month. Do not be over enthusiastic about weight loss. Such over enthusiasm could lead to disappointment and stress. You need counseling. Take care.

You need to get your memory problems seriousy evaluated. You might require a MRI scan, EEG preferably sleep EEG and some tests for memory. Based on the results remedy can be suggested. Many people in particular cycle of sleep cannot recollect events afer awakening, so it need not always be abnormal. When you get call s like this, ask them to message or watsapp you the details and make it a habit early in the morning to check for the messages, for not missing anything. All the best.

I am giving you some health tips that will certainly help you to quit smoking 1. As you have decided to quit smoking this is first and most important step now we have to concentrate on gradual decreasing number of cigarettes/bidis and I am giving you some changes to your lifestyle you can make that may help you resist the temptation . And these changes are very easy to do 2. Change in Diet: some foods, including meat, make cigarettes more satisfying. And food like fruit and vegetables, cheese, Milk, dahi, and other home made vegetarian food with low salt and spices make cigarettes taste terrible. Drinks, alcohol, cola, tea and coffee all make cigarettes taste better.So drink more water and juice. Also you can switch from wine to a vodka and tomato juice), affects their need to reach for a cigarette. 3. Physical exercise : Even a five-minute walk or stretch) cuts cravings and help brain to produce anti-craving chemicals. 4. Make a nonsmoking friends: this is one of the most important step 5. There are Nicotine replacement therapy available in form of patches, tablets, lozenges, gum and a nasal spray. This therapy also help to quit smoking and neutralizing craving episode 6. Education about adverse effect also encourage us to quit smoking like it causes heart attacks, mouth cancer, lung cancer so better to quit as soon as possible 7. You can taper of numbers of ciggarete/ Bidis gradually like if you take 10 cigarettes per day reduce it to 8-9 in a day for 3-4 days than 7-8 in next 3-4 days graually you can decrease no upto 1-2 ciggrete per day and finally quit it completley 8. And one other important thing if you smoke one cigarette in half hour than you can prolong this interval like you can take 1-2 hours for one cigarette so that gradually it can be quit. Consult Physician/ me for further Management

Procrastination is what it is called! you know the worst part of it is feeling guilty. That will hamper your performance more than procrastination. Be at peace & satisfied with yourself. Even if you delay! the division of naveen into one who wants to take it easy and one which feels bad and is desperate to change is causing t he conflict. You should be intelligent enough not to invite conflicts and even physical ailments by such attitude. Sit back and chill. Cheers.
