It is not clear why you were given these medications in the first place. Yes, they can cause some sedation/ drowsiness and lack of concentration. Stop them now.

What Causes Infertility in Men?

What Causes Infertility in Men?

Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles. There are a host of causes that may lead to infertility in men such as lifestyle choices and obesity. Male infertility is characterized by irregular sperm function or reduced sperm count. Infertility has emerged as a common problem as a result of the modern day lifestyle. Extremely hectic schedules, stress, burnout, depression, unhealthy diets; all of these can contribute to fertility issues.

The various reasons for infertility in men are:

  1. If you are overweight, then it is time to lose those extra kilos. Obesity leads to a number of health problems, one of them being erectile dysfunction.
  2. Various hormonal problems such as complications of the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands may lead to low testosterone levels in the body.
  3. Various infections such as inflammation of the testicles and epididymis that causes blockage of the tubes carrying the sperm can be a cause.
  4. Various medications such as using anabolic steroids, antifungal medications and chemotherapy may hamper production of the sperm and thus hit fertility.
  5. Both alcohol and cigarettes may cause problems in sperm production, and cause erectile dysfunction. Excessive drinking may lead to complications in the liver resulting in infertility.

The reasons of infertility may range from medical causes to lifestyle choices; some of the causes may be related to the environment. A common cause of infertility is due to problems with transportation of the sperm. These are mainly due to blockages in the tubes that carry the sperm.

Symptoms of infertility in men are:

  1. You may experience low libido
  2. Your sperm count may be low
  3. You may experience lumps or swellings in the testicles
  4. Chromosomal complications such as reduced body hair
  5. You may have chronic respiratory problems

I have thyroid condition like fatigue, dry hair ,skin allergy ,ear infection, body temperature is 97.2,memory problem, difficulty concentration ,tiredness, lack of motivation, anxiety, panic attacksbut my thyroid blood levels are in normal range. Can thyroid problem be there despite of normal blood levels. Is bioidentical thyroid hormonal therapy available in india?

Hi, Usually for so many symptoms to occur, the thyroid hormone levels should be quite low. Hence it is unlikely that you have a thyroid problem. Please check your 'Free T3 & Free T4' levels to confirm the same. Thyroid hormone therapy if taken without the presence of hypothyroidism, is actually quite harmful. In addition, similar symptoms can occur simply due to depression & associated disorders. Please check your 'core' body temperature also. Regards.

last week my sugar level is 187 after meals 372 after I taken treatment my sugar level reduces but still I have erection problem next month I have marriage pls help me.

Endocrinologist, Mumbai
For diabetes and blood pressure follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Keep your fasting blood sugar between 80-130 and post meal between 100-150. Don't be stressed out as stress is known to increase your erection problem and blood sugar. Try some meditation or yoga.

One year back my doctor advice me check thyroid, I check my thyroid profile then my tsh is 6.1 its border line after few months again I check that its remains same level then I Start thyronorm 25 MCG. Few months later again I check it my tsh is controlled 2.5. Then I stop that tablets my tsh raises to 10.7 again I start that same dose but my tsh again increases to 12.9 why its raises. And I used aldactone and isotretinoin tablets for skin and hormonal problems. Is any relation that tablets. Why tsh is frequently increased please tell me. Thanks.

Homeopath, Chennai
Thyroid hormones are considered master hormones responsible for multiple functions in our body and hence its imbalance can cause symptoms right from indigestion, constipation, weight gain, hairfall, abnormal hair growth, period problems, pcod, mood disorders and much more. Now the thyroid gland whih secretes the thyroid hormones (t3/t4) are controlled by the brain via a hormone called tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone). So just like a misbehaving child is going to be controlled by a parent/teacher, the tsh increases or decreases based on changes in t3/t4 levels. So an increased tsh level indicates that the brain or the higher managment is working overtime to keep the thyroid hormones in check. In your case, the thyroid gland function is decreasing progressively as time progresses and hence the efforts put by the tsh has to increase to compensate and balance the situation. Also the skin problems you said to be facing are most likely related to the thyroid dysfunction. So if your thyroid function is brought back to a healthy state i. E. Where it functions at nml levels on its own and doesn't need external help, all the symptoms will be relieved automatically. Here's what you can do. Find out what situations led you into thyroid dysfunction. Maintain a healthy diet and physical activity routine to avoid further health problems. Continue the prescribed meds until your thyroid function revives, as is possible with homeopathy. Avoid stressed - worry, anxious, angry, improper diet and inadequate rest. Happy to help!

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Hye, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.

Eating too much sugar could be the one of causes for diabetes? Should I stop eating sweets? There are lots of rumors I don't know what is true but what I heard is that" the person who has diabetes shouldn't eat sugar but eating too much sugar has nothing to do with diabetes" what is true?

MPhil ( Foods and Nutrition), M.Sc.(Food Service Management and Dietetics)

Hi, Both the statements are true. A diabetic person should avoid sweets and sugar, as they will easily be absorbed and will instant rise the blood sugar levels. For a normal person: Too much of sugar will also be absorbed easily by the body, the excess sugar in the body will be converted to fats and stored in the body leading to weight gain. Weight gain is one of the major reason for diabetes. Hence limit your sugars. Regards,

Mr Anil Kumar, TSH 6.65 mU/L, is high, but falls in sub-clinical hypothyroidism. No treatment is advocated at this level, unless there are some specific troublesome symptoms attributable to that are present. There is no special lifestyle that is advised for this problem. You have to use iodinated salt, consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits, exercise regularly and avoid weight gain. Avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Thanks.

Ayurvedic Remedies For Thyroid Disorder!

Thyroid has become a common ailment among most women in India nowadays. It is triggered due to the presence of impurities in the blood, which lead to hormonal imbalances and therefore, a number of symptoms, including anorexia, unhealthy weight gain, loss of energy, weakness and fatigue are experienced. But in case of hyperthyroid, you will notice an increased metabolic activity, a rise in pulse rate, loss of weight and palpitation.

Irrespective of whether you are suffering from hyperthyroid or hypothyroid, Ayurvedic treatment has some viable solutions that are aimed at elevating your health condition.

Ayurveda and thyroid

Though there is no direct mention of thyroid in the Ayurvedic texts, there are major implications that hint towards a disease like thyroid that is caused due to imbalance of body fluid and its probable treatments. Thyroid imbalance can be controlled by the following treatment regimen that includes:

1. Dietary regulations: As per Charaka, thyroid doesn’t affect those individuals who take milk in adequate quantities. In addition, you must take moong seeds, bengal gram seeds, sugarcane, cucumber, barley and old rice in optimum amounts for prevention of thyroid. In case you are already suffering from thyroid imbalance, then you must also aim at having a considerable amount of milk on a regular basis.

2. Herbs for regulating thyroid: The herb named Purple Mountain Ebony is purposely helpful in the treatment as well as proper functioning of the thyroid gland. In addition to this herb, you must also intake Punarnava, Brahmi, Jatamansi, Gokshura and Shilajita for alleviating your thyroid problems.

3. Home remedies: If there is swelling in any part of the body caused due to thyroid imbalances, then it can be properly treated by applying a fine paste of Jalakumbhi over the affected area. The juice of this paste can be administered in a small quantity of 22 grams in a span of 24 hours. It helps to increase the amount of iodine in the body which helps to fix various problems in the body. If you are experiencing a lack of energy and weakness, you can use coconut oil for boosting the sluggish metabolism of the body.

4. Yoga for treating thyroid: There are various Yogic postures, which are believed to help in the maintenance of the thyroid gland. You can practice sun salutation, fish pose and shoulder stand for alleviating your condition and get rid of all types of health issues caused from thyroid imbalances.

If you wish to get a personalised evaluation of your health condition, then it is imperative to pay a visit to an expert who can recommend proper Ayurvedic treatment methods for you.
