I am 34 year Old male with a secondary infertility case i.e. I already have 6 years old daughter which we got via natural conception. I don't drink, don't smoke at all and IT engineer by profession with no exposure of any heat whatsoever. It's been over 10 months since we are trying for our second baby and we aren't getting result. We had a rigorous tests done for my wife and she is all fine as she was during 1st conception hence with repeated semen analysis it's discovered that I have Azoospermia God knows how come it got developed in me :(. I have absolute no surgery or something hitting my testis which could ever lead to this. Doctor has advised me to go for Testicular Biopsy some have advised IUI / IVF. I want to know do I really need IVF as I strongly believe that I must be having sperms but it's not just coming through ejaculation. Please advise.

Azoospermia means your semen doesnot contain sperms. It could be due to either lack of production or due to obstruction of the tube which delivers the sperms at sex. In patients of azoospermia, is the volume of the ejaculate (semen) is good and fructose test is positive, it could mean there is no production. If the fructose if absent it suggests ejaculatory duct obstruction. Usually hormones tests like FSH, LH, Inhibin B levels are advised and on their basis, some hormonal treatment can be offered. Normal volume, PH and fructose being present and presence of GPC (glyceryl phospho choline) means there is NO obstruction, But Normal Volume, PH and fructose positive but NO GPC means it is vas deference epididymis level obstruction. Low volume, PH and fructose negative and NO GPC means it is ejaculatory duct obstruction So het the hormone tests done, GPC levels tested, and meet a urologist or andrologist who can guide your treatment. In patients who have sperm production but tubal block, the sperms can be aspirated by TESA or MESA but these need to be sued for IVF only. If the hormone levels are low, and there is NO obstruction, there are injections which can help increase the production. In patient who have never had a child or are not affording the expensive testicular biopsy, TESA, MESA,IVF, gynecologists also can suggest a donor semen insemination as a attempt for those who want a pregnancy desperately. So decide for yourself and then meet an andrologist or urologist.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. SInce you are already having diabetes, therefore, if conceived, then blood glucose has to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg through out the day (fasting and after food). That is absolutely essential for proper growth of the fetus and expected outcome of the pregnancy. Also to avoid developing of large baby and bad out come. So just before expecting conception, it is better to shift to insulin and control your blood glucose very strictly. You should consult a diabetologist locally along with your obstetrician. Thanks.

Dear Arunachalam BMI of 22.5 is accurately the optimum levels.... but at your age, deviation of upto 3 counts is absolutely fine. At 63, the exercises you are doing are very good. Support it with an ideal diet plan and mind positivity programs. At a senior age, it is a lazy, depressed mind that causes health problems more than blood sugar. redards

My aunty is suffering from diabetics. And she is suffering from lack of blood .what precautions should we must take.
Hi If the cause for her low Hemoglobin is iron deficiency then she needs lots of iron rich foods like beans, rajma, legumes, lentils, green leafy vegetables, ragi. If it is not due to iron deficiency then she needs a complete evaluation as to find the cause of her blood loss. As a diabetic let her take her medicines regularly, follow a strict diabetic diet (4-6 small meals a day, avoid white rice, refined flour, sugar, excess oil, fried foods, bakery products, take fresh vegetables and fuits like apple, guava, mousambi, strawberry, plum, papaya), and exercise regularly.

We should take slight amount of sugar. You know only in presence of sugar salt is absorbed. Even to diabetic patient in case of dehydration we give saline and glucose combination. So never delete sugar completely.

You must start exercise with proper guidance. Your food must be low in calorie. Like more leafy vegetables and low fat diet. Eat with smaller dishes. Use less amount of soft drinks or juices. Better to eat high fibre diet.

My father has been suffering from diabetes since many days. Could you please suggest him right diet?
if he is suffering form dm t2, then to suggest any diet I need to know fasting and pp sugar levels, present dietary pattern, hba1c% and extent of daily exercise, current treatment with dosage. Without those details it is not possible to give a diet plan as it is highly individualised. In the mean time he should: 1) avoid sweets completely, 2) avoid deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. 3) avoid sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products & highly processed products. 4) refrain from alcohol and smoking. 5) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). 6) exercise daily for at least 1 hour to keep weight in check. 7) he has a bmi of 29.41kgs which shows he is over weight close to being obese.

Dear Lybrate User, *Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to make proper use of glucose, resulting in the condition of hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Excess glucose in the blood ultimately results in high levels of glucose being present in the urine (glycosuria). This increases the urine output, which leads to dehydration and increased thirst. *Glucose comes from the food we eat and is also made in liver and muscles. The blood carries glucose to all the cells in our body. Insulin, a chemical (or hormone) produced in the pancreas, is responsible for the uptake of glucose into cells for energy. Decreased levels of insulin affects this mechanism leading to increased glucose in the blood stream. •Include whole grains in the diet, such as wheat bread/pasta and brown rice. •Cheese and yogurt prepared with skimmed (nonfat) milk may be taken. •Use garlic, onion, bitter gourd, spinach, raw banana, and black plum. •Make a flour mixture of 1 part barley, 1 part black chickpeas, and 4 parts whole-wheat flour and use this to form pancakes and bread. •Avoid sweet, sour, and salty foods, potatoes, sweet potatoes, colocasia (taro), yams, fresh grains and pulses (legumes), whole yogurt (high in fat), and heavy, oily and spicy foods. •Avoid sweet fruits like pineapple, grapes, mangoes, etc. •Start doing some light exercise, such as brisk walking. Build up to a brisk walk of 30-40 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. •Avoid sleeping in the daytime.

Having daily wheat chappati for dinner does it help in reducing the blood sugar levels.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Wheat chapati or jowar roti or any other cereal flour contains mainly starch. Which is ultimately converted to glucose after digestion. So whatever, one eats has to be in a moderate amount. Excess of any food is not helpful in controlling blood glucose. Basically for a person with diabetes diet restriction is a must. Total calories should be based on - ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Intake of green leafy vegetables should be more, which help in reducing the glucose levels. Thanks.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms And Causes

Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms And Causes

Glucose is the primary ingredient within the body, which is turned into an energy source. This is what we use when we move, walk or make the slightest movements. To metabolize glucose into energy, our body needs insulin, which is a hormone produced within the pancreas. However, if the body doesn't react to the insulin or the pancreas is unable to produce enough, glucose cannot be converted into energy and thus results in type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

  1. Sudden or gradual weight loss despite increased hunger - Many people complain that they feel hungry and eat more, but despite this the tend to lose weight. This occurs as the body cannot metabolize glucose and uses energy reserves from fat or muscles leading to weight loss.
  2. Frequent infections and slow healing - If you are afflicted with type 2 diabetes, then it might affect your immune system and you may be prone to infections. Also, any cuts or bruises on your body will take much longer to heal than normal.
  3. Irritability and fatigue - Another common symptom of type 2 diabetes along with the other symptoms mentioned here is quick irritability and fatigue. This is because most of the body is deprived of sugar and thus lacks the energy needed to function normally. 
  4. Constant thirst and increased urination - If you feel constantly thirsty despite drinking ample water and urinating frequently, this may be a tell tale sign of type 2 diabetes.
  5. Skin darkening in folds and creases of the body - Also known as acanthosis nigricans; this is known darkening of the skin where it also becomes velvety to the touch. It usually develops in the folds of skin in areas, such as the neck and armpits and is a direct result of insulin resistance.

Causes of type 2 diabetes:

Some of the most common causes of type 2 diabetes could be:

  • Being overweight
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Genetic predisposition or family history 
  • If you are more than 45 years of age
  • Hormonal problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Treatment or management of type 2 diabetes:

In most cases, major lifestyle changes can easily keep the symptoms of type 2 diabetes in check although, in certain cases medications may also be required. Some of the steps necessary are as follows:

  1. Change in diet and healthy eating
  2. Physical activity and exercising
  3. Regular blood sugar monitoring and
  4. Blood sugar medication along with insulin therapy, if necessary 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Dear friend, many of newly detected diabetics have sugars in range of 500-600 mg%. So you're not the odd man out although it's not good to see such high sugar readings. Please understand. That when sugar touches pancreas, insulin is released which takes sugar into the cell for energy production but with very high sugar pancreas becomes numb and doesn't release insulin in response to food. Under such condition pancreas doesn't respond to oral medications and hence insulin usage for initial one month or so helps immensely. Please follow your doctors advice without anxiety. Insulin is the safest and best drug provided dose is adjusted judiciously and diligently. Hope this helps.
