Surgical shops have varicose veins stockings which she can wear during the day and during night, she can keep both legs on a pillow. I do not think there is any restriction on exercises in renal donors. Yoga is a good alternative and would help in sleep too.

How Lack of Sleep Impacts Your Health?

MD
General Physician, Mumbai
How Lack of Sleep Impacts Your Health?

Sleep is an activity where you do nothing, but rest. You relax your body and mind, you rest your bones and muscles and you rest your eyes after a long day of physical exertion. It is extremely necessary for you to get ample amount of sleep to stay healthy.

Otherwise there are various problems which you might have to face if you are lacking sleep:

  1. Elevates the risk of stroke: According to study, people who get less sleep are more prone to having strokes than those who get enough sleep. If you sleep for less than 6 hours every day, you multiply the risk of have a stroke four times than ordinary.
  2. Obesity: Lack of sleep can cause obesity. It usually forces you to take erratic food decisions, leading you to eat a lot of junk food. Less sleep administers certain hormonal changes which make you feel hungrier and believe that you haven’t eaten enough food. The production of the hormone ghrelin, which controls your hunger, increases due to less sleep. Hence, it may lead to obesity if you keep eating without keeping a check on what you eat.
  3. Increases the risk of diabetes: Sleep and the production of insulin are inversely related to each other. Among teenagers, the less you sleep; the more insulin resistant your body becomes. This means the body is not able to use the insulin effectively.
  4. Results in poor memory: Less sleep causes tiredness. When you are extremely tired, you are not able to focus on anything going on around you, you cannot concentrate on your work, and you get forgetful. In fact, consistent lack of sleep can even cause permanent loss of memory. This is because you are not being able to fully utilize the memory boosting ability of sleep. This eventually causes brain deterioration which results in permanent memory loss.
  5. Affects your heart: Lack of sleep can have an extremely negative impact on your heart. Less sleep also causes stress and strain to your body and mind. It results in an increased production of certain chemicals and hormones in the body which is harmful for your heart. According to a study in 2011, people who sleep less than 6 hours every day increase the risk of having heart problems by almost 48%.

It is not very healthy to sleep less as it can complicate your daily life activities. Sleep enough and stay healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Physiotherapy, weight reduction, and guided exercise is the way to go. Also neural pain can be effectively relieved by medication. Also if your mother is diabetic, make sure her sugar is in control. Get her vit b12 levels checked. Deficiency can exacerbate such symptoms. Medicines like gabapentin and pregabalin are effective. Consult with a good neurologist.

First thing you should do is to get rid off anxiety and stress as those are main offenders in many. You can try any of the following methods. You can do squeeze and stop technique. You can stimulate your partner to maximum before getting yourself stimulated. You can deviate your thought to something nonsexual when you about to near ejaculation. You can put on a condom or condom with anesthetic which will decrease the excessive stimulation on penis and there by prevent premature ejaculation. Hope this may help you. Let me know if you have any further query.

I am 35 yrs married & my problem is that my sex organ does not erect very well & at the time of relation sperms quikly comes out within a minute but I want for atleast 30 - 40 minutes relation with my wife. Please suggest very good treatment with medicines. With no any side effect.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Erectile dysfunction can be due to stress / anxiety or due to physical cause. For physical cause you need to do blood tests hb, tc, dc, fasting sugar, prolactin, tsh. Premature ejaculation too is very common and is usually not associated with any disease but may be due to anxiety. However it is sometimes associated with infection of male accessory glands, which is treatable. Stop smoking if you smoke. In case you want a prescription from me now then ask at private question.

I am 36 yrs old male. I have motion problem from last 2 years and i am diabetic patient.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Are you constipated? Or having frequent diarrhoea? both are motion problem. Will you be little specific? diabetics do have gastroparesis - slowed down movements of gi tract, which causes constipation. I am damn sure your diabetologist / doctor has spoken to you about it if he heard it from you. You talk to him. In the mean time take oral fluid (water - 3 litre daily), high fibre diet. Laxatives if required. Continue exercise and dietary management as suggested by your treating doctor and also medicines. Monitor blood sugar periodically and also check regularly to find that you are not developing any complication of diabetes. All answers you shall get from your treating doctor.

Premature Ejaculation - Signs You Are Suffering from it

D.E.H.M, B.E.M.S, M.D.(E.H)
Sexologist, Faridabad
Premature Ejaculation - Signs You Are Suffering from it

The most crucial condition for any male is any disorder which hampers his physical intimacy with his partner. These physical discomforts create psychological impact for any male and affect the personal and social life. Premature ejaculation is one such sexual disorder that occurs in male. In this premature ejaculation the men ejaculate the semen involuntarily too earlier or during the orgasm itself.

Causes

There exact cause of premature ejaculation is not known. But few researches suggest causes like physical conditions like nervous conduction problem and increased penile sensitivity. Psychological factors include performance anxiety, early initiation of masturbating in adolescence and trying to complete the masturbation process too early in fear of getting caught by adults, passive aggressiveness and unresolved relationship issues.

Primary symptoms
Primary symptoms include clearly the ejaculation of semen too early during sex. This may cause a feeling of dissatisfaction and disappointment to both the male and female partner. But male have this dissatisfaction at higher rate than the female partner.

Secondary symptoms

  1. Lack of self confidence in sexual act which may further lead to other psychological disturbances for both partners
  2. Problem or difficulty in interpersonal relationship
  3. Depression because of the failure in sexual attempt
  4. Embarrassment mainly to the male partner and this causes anxiety to male partner in the matter of sex
  5. Increased level of stress and some may even show decreased level of performance in their professional work

Treatment

  1. If the problem is caused because of any psychological reasons this can easily be treated with psychological counselling and with the guidance of the sexual health advice.
  2. If the problem is with the newly married couples or with the new sex partner this may get automatically resolved as their relationship gets improved over period of time.
  3. If premature ejaculation is caused because of any physical reasons this can be treated with the anti-depressant drugs. But most doctors don’t prefer drugs as this may cause many adverse effects on sexual life on regular usage.
  4. Some doctors’ advice the use of lidocaine 20 – 30 minutes before having sex as this may increase the ejaculation time.

If you wish to discuss about any specific sexual problem, you can consult a specilized sexologist and ask a free question.
