Lybrate-user, if a person has confirmed diabetes and is on treatment, then stopping the treatment is not advisable. The sugar level mentioned (130 to 150 mg) is which one? fasting or pp? because once drug treatment is stopped blood sugar can increase disproportionately. Get his hba1c% checked, it has to aoround 6 to be free from diabetes. (5.9 to 6.4 % is prediabetes, >6.5 % is diabetes). As regards affection of sexual life, yes it can get affected if blood sugar levels are not strictly controlled with appropriate treatment. It is better if consults a proper diabetologist. Thanks.

Hi Lybrate User, You have not reduced weight because you may be focussing at the wrong place. FIRSTLY - Weight is not the problem. The real problem are the habits which contribute to your weight. Just like when you get bad marks in Exams... the problem is not Marks... the real problem is lack of studies. You have to understand the issue at hand. You have to aim for fitness. You have to aim for good health. You have to aim for nutritious diet. When your aim is right... your results will be right. Junk food is an addiction... Get rid of friends or your company which is forcing you to ruin your health. If your home food is too rich... take charge and change food habits of everyone at home. Don't let life slip by like this. Extra weight will cause immense problems in your life just like 1. snoring you have mentioned. It is better if you get your complete body checkup done from a lab including Blood Pressure.. Then consult a dietician + join a fitness program. Change your life today.. Be healthy .. be fit.. live happy.

Premature ejaculation has physical and psychological causes. The physical cause has to do with the nerves in the skin of the penis being super sensitive; psychological causes of premature ejaculation can include performance anxiety, stress, feeling inadequate, anxiety and/or humiliation. The majority of men who suffer from premature ejaculation have both physical and psychological factors. 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.
