Which medicine should I Take? I have bells palsy. My left side eye is closing automatically and left side mouth bending towards left automatically.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
Facial and bell's paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. There can be many reasons for it. It can be due to any infection in nerve, any head injury, tumor, stroke, high bp leading to hemorrhage, any auto immune diease, the most common is ear infection or inflammation directly affecting your facial nerve as it passes through your ear. In physio we have very good treatment plan include: muscle stimulator - stimulate / strength the weak muscles those are paralysed. Facial soft tissue manipulation, facial exercises, pnf, etc so in general I would advice you to go for some treatment if possible visit some neurophysio who will guide you your treatment plan according to your problem. Please follow: 1. Facial exercises like eyebrow raising, drawing, wrinkling, deep breath from nose, smiling, ballon filling, jaw moments etc 2. Using your fingers massage the entire area of massage with applying any cream or talcum. Guidance required from physio. 3. If not that weak then you can apply hot pack also for 10 mins. Precautions: 1. Take eye care. Wash properly. 2. Use goggles when moving out from home. 3. Take mouth care. 4. While drinking or eating take care. 5. Guidance from neurophysio for life styl modifications. 6. If speech disturbed take opinion from speech therapist. Please consult me if you do not understand any point. Get well soon. Take care.

Self Tips For Preventing Kidney Diseases!

Self Tips For Preventing Kidney Diseases!

Chronic kidney disease, also called chronic kidney failure, describes the gradual loss of kidney function. Your kidneys filter wastes and excess fluids from your blood, which are then excreted in your urine. When chronic kidney disease reaches an advanced stage, dangerous levels of fluid, electrolytes and wastes can build up in your body.

In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, you may have few signs or symptoms. Chronic kidney disease may not become apparent until your kidney function is significantly impaired.

Treatment for chronic kidney disease focuses on slowing the progression of the kidney damage, usually by controlling the underlying cause. Chronic kidney disease can progress to end-stage kidney failure, which is fatal without artificial filtering (dialysis) or a kidney transplant.

The kidney has multiple functions, and one of it is to act like a filter and remove out waste substances. These filtered out substances are excreted through the urine.

Common kidney diseases including infections, kidney stones, diabetic effects, hypertensive effects, tumours, chronic kidney disease (effects of both hypertension and diabetes) and kidney failure.

Features of kidney diseases:

  1. Infections usually start with symptoms like burning with urination, change in colour of urine, and low abdominal pain.
  2. Kidney stones are usually identified by their characteristic pain in the sides of the back
  3. Smaller stones up to about 4 mm are passed through urine on their own.
  4. However, for larger stones, external shock waves are used to break them into smaller ones, which are then eliminated by the kidneys.

How Can I Prevent Kidney Disease?

The key to prevention or delay of severe kidney disease is early detection and aggressive intervention -- while there's still time to slow down the progression to kidney failure. Medical care with early intervention can change the course of chronic kidney disease and help prevent the need for dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Diabetes and high blood pressure account for two thirds of all cases of chronic kidney disease. By aggressively managing diabetes and high blood pressure with diet, exercise, and medications, you may be able to prevent kidney failure and help keep as much kidney function as possible.

Infections:

  • To prevent urinary tract infections, proper hygiene is very important.
  • Thorough washing of the external urinary tract and use of clean underwear and toilet facilities is very important.

Kidney stones:

  • Intravenous injections of pain relievers to help in pain control immediately on seeing the patient. If pain persists, an additional shot may also be required.
  • Patients also have accompanying nausea and vomiting and may require antiemetics to control these.
  • At the time of discharge, these medications can be continued at home.
  • Hydration is very important, so drink at least 3 litres of water.
  • Urine should be strained to ensure the stones have been passed
  • Monitoring urine output including quantity and colour for any changes is also important. If urine is turbid, water intake should be increased.
  • Avoid oxalate-rich foods. Most kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate, and therefore foods rich in oxalate should be avoided. Beets, spinach, okra, tea, chocolate, soy, etc., should be minimised
  • Reducing intake of salt and animal protein also helps in preventing recurrence. Legumes are a good option for proteins.
  • Calcium supplements, if being taken, may need to be reduced or stopped. This can be managed by including enough calcium in the diet.

Chronic kidney disease: This is seen as a side effect of hypertension and diabetes.

  • Constant monitoring of both BP and sugar levels is very essential.
  • Keep cholesterol levels under check as suggested by your doctor
  • Medicines should be taken as prescribed and not altered without medical supervision
  • Quit smoking if the habit is still being continued
  • Improve physical activity levels, which will also help control BP, sugar, and cholesterol levels
  • Weight monitoring is essential to keep check, not just on kidneys but overall health.
  • Kidney diseases put a person in a vicious cycle of health problems, so early detection and prevention are advised.

Here are some self-tips to prevent kidney diesease:

  1. Get Tested Regularly - At your next checkup, and at least within the next year if you haven't had these tests done:
    • Ask for a urine test to see if you have excess protein, glucose, or blood in the urine.
    • Ask for a blood pressure reading
    • Ask for a fasting blood glucose test
    • Ask for a creatinine test. 
  2. Control Diabetes - If you have diabetes, work with your health care provider to keep your blood sugar levels under the best possible control. A program of diet, regular exercise, glucose monitoring, and medications to control blood sugars and protect kidney function can help.
  3. Control High Blood Pressure - If you have high blood pressure, work with your health care provider to get your blood pressure within target ranges. A program of diet, regular exercise, and medications can help.

I am facing a problem of delayed ejaculation and at time I end up without ejaculation even after a long sex session. My wife is concerned and this is taking toll on our sex life.

I am facing a problem of delayed ejaculation and at time I end up without ejaculation even after a long sex session. ...
Delayed ejaculation is a troublesome problem for sexually active males. Though inability to relax perineal musculature remains the only possible etiology behind it, certain medications are also implicated in its causation. The medicine you are taking" rexipra" is an ssri which canalso delay ejaculation by retrograde ejaculation. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for replacement of the said medicine with an alternative and add some anxiolytic as an add on. Also consider consulting a psychiatrist with your spouse for couple counselling and sex therapy.

Is Masturbation Normal For Committed Guys?

BAMS
Sexologist, Nashik
Is Masturbation Normal For Committed Guys?

It refers to the touching of your own body in order to get pleasure and satisfaction. This activity is a very important part of physical as well as mental wellbeing.
Men and women all over the world engage in masturbation, irrespective of whether or not they are sexually active with their partners. There are many myths and debates associated with the act of masturbation, especially for those who are in committal (or non-committal) relationships with a regular sexual partner.
One of these myths is that masturbating when you're in a relationship is abnormal and is indicative of the fact that your partner has lost interest in you and is not sexually attracted to you.

However, masturbating in a relationship is perfectly normal for the following reasons:

  • It is how many learn about their bodies and sexual responsiveness, which enables them to perform better during intercourse
  • It acts as a sexual outlet for those whose partners do not wish to have sex or are unavailable for a temporary time period
  • It is a safe alternative when the risk of sexually transmitted infections and diseases is present

Apart from that masturbation can also help enhancing the sexual relationship as studies show that those who had experienced orgasm through masturbation before they started having sex are likelier to experience better orgasms when they have sex than those who don't masturbate.

However, masturbation comes with its own set of problems. If done excessively, these problems will begin to manifest themselves in the bedroom in the form of sexual dysfunction.

The subsequent reasons entail why it is not good to masturbate too frequently:

  • Too much masturbation leads to loss of libido: Some people tend to constant masturbate to pornography despite having regular sexual partners. They often find themselves underperforming during intercourse as unwarranted masturbation lowers sexual drive.
  • Masturbation does not have the health benefits of sexual intercourse: Having regular sex with a partner positively impacts many aspects of one's health, such as blood pressure, cardiac vigour, hormone secretions, etc. However, masturbation does not carry many of those benefits, as studies have shown.
  • Masturbation has its own risks: It may be considered the safest form of sex possible but it isn't entirely risk-free. Frequent masturbation can cause skin irritations and men who masturbate with roughness face the risk of penile fracture.

The amount of masturbation that one should indulge in is extremely subjective. Those who masturbate regularly and still have a healthy sexual relationship with their partners are in a wholesome place. But if masturbation causes you to develop an aversion to having sex with your partner, consult a sex therapist right away. Compulsive masturbation is a behavior that disrupts one's life both physically and mentally.

Addiction to masturbation denotes that you are continuously indulged in sexual thoughts. This type of thoughts is common in people who live a sedentary life. If you really have a sedentary life-style you should get yourself out from it immediately. Socialize yourself. Do some physical exercise daily. Drink a lots of water. Create a routine of your daily schedule & maintain it.

Dear looking to your age mostly cause would be prostate enlargement. Ideally you need to see a urologist and be investigated properly. However for prostate one can try drugs like tamsulosin 0. 4 mg at bedtime which helps a lot of patients. At the same time make sure you are not constipated as it increases the urinary problems.
