Hello, Thanks for the query. Please clarify whether the query is from a male or a female. Because conception is only the problem seen females. If a female has hypothyroidism and if it is not well controlled, then menstrual periods are affected, ovulation is affected and hence conception may not take place. So if hypothyroidism is present then it must be properly treated with adequate dose of thyroxine. Thanks.

Dear Doctor .I need an advice regarding my sugar management as below -- I was noticed with PP sugar of 206 in Jan 2014 and fasting at 120. My HBa1c parameter was at 6.5. I was given Sugamet MC for almost nine months and testing was done every three months. Now -- 1.With sugamet MC 500 once a day my HBa1c is 5.6 and also the fasting sugar and PP sugar is with in normal book limits. 2.I stopped sugamet mc 500 3 months back. Now my parameters are as below -- HBa1c parameter is 6.0. Fasting sugar is 111 and PP sugar is 160 My question is --- 1.When I am in normal limits (ofcourse its near the upper limit) without medicine. Should I still take the medicine? 2.Is taking metformin preventive in nature? I mean taking Sugamet mc 500 still will prevent my sugar metabolism from worsening further? I am a regular exerciser. I spend one hour in a gym doing muscle and weight training exercises. Alternate days I go for fast walk for 2kms with stretching exercises. Its my regular routine. Diet Control ----I am on a strict diet regime. Artificial sugar in any form is out of my food list for past one year. Be it tea/coffee/milk/icecreams/sweets /cold drinks/ sharbats etc. I am consuming minimum qty of potatots and other vegetables etc which are forbidden to control sugar level. I am trying to live by book. I take oats / almonds and nuts as me breakfast before exercise. After coming from gym I take whey protein shake. Then I take my lunch at 11:30-12:00. I take mild snacks at around 5:00 p.M. Dinner is around 9:00 p.M. And Ofcourse half an hour walk after dinner daily. I am a strict vegetarian. Pls advise if I shd continue with medicine or not. Regards

For weight gain proper nutrition is a must. 1) you can start including more milk, cow ghee, fruits & vegetables in your diet. 2) stop eating junk & processed food. 3) make a habit of consuming one well ripen banana with a cup of warm milk with a tsp of ghee. 4) eat soaked dry grapes or dates soaked in warm milk over night. 5) boost up your apettite by working out daily for atleast 30 mins. 6) massaging whole body with vata balancing herbal oil (ksheerabala oil) is very beneficial 7) reducing stress level, sleeping comfortably for long hours and afternoon naps are very essential to increase body mass.

You can undergo circumsion at any age if it is giving you pain while retracting your foreskin. Some pain is involved in this surgery. Bed rest is not required, but you have to protect that area under bandage. It takes around 7-14 days to heal the sutures. Intercourse is possible after 3 to 4 weeks and it does not affect ejaculation.

Dear lybrate-user, since diabetes is a life long illness, the treatment also has to be lifelong. Allopathy has proved to be very effective for controlling diabetes. I am not sure about homoeopathy and it also depends greatly on the treating doctor. Any ways, it will have to be taken lifelong. Please understand that in homoeopathy if given wrong medicine can cause a permanent side effect which might be impossible to rectify. In allopathy, atleast a lot of research evidence is available for all the existing medications. & the effects & side effects are all documented.

Infertility - Causes And Treatment

MICOG, DRM, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), DNB, MD, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Infertility - Causes And Treatment

Infertility is a condition wherein a woman does not get pregnant in spite of having unprotected intercourse over a period of a year or even more. An abnormal menstrual cycle that is either too short or too long, irregular or even scanty can be an indication of a lack of ovulation, which in turn, is another factor behind female infertility.

Causes:

  1. Ovulation disorders are characterized by either a lack of ovulation or irregular and infrequent ovulation. These are a major cause of infertility. This may be due to defects in the regulation of the reproductive hormones by the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus (brain center responsible for producing some of the most essential hormones required by the body). Malfunctioning of the ovary is another cause in itself. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, premature failure of the ovaries (a condition wherein a woman’s ovaries fail to function properly even before she is 40 years old), hypothalamic dysfunction (a dysfunction of the hypothalamus) and excessive production of prolactin (a hormone that stimulates milk production among women after childbirth) by the pituitary gland are some of the factors responsible for the occurrence of such a disorder.

  2. Damaged fallopian tubes do not allow the sperms to fuse properly with the egg. They might also prevent the fertilized egg from entering into the uterus. This condition may be caused due to pelvic inflammatory diseases (a group of infections of the reproductive organs in women), an infection in the fallopian tubes or the uterus caused due to various Sexually Transmitted Diseases, any abdominal surgery or surgery of the pelvic region and pelvic tuberculosis.

  3. Endometriosis, wherein the tissue that usually grows in the uterus, starts growing outside it, is another factor responsible for infertility.

  4. Several cervical or uterine disorders, such as tumors, inflammation within the uterus, uterine abnormalities, a cervical narrowing or the inability of the cervix to produce mucous for the sperm to travel to the uterus, are likely to impact fertility by obstructing implantation or enhancing the chances of miscarriage.

  5. A man’s fertility generally relies on the quantity and quality of his sperm. If the number of sperm a man ejaculates is low or if the sperm are of a poor quality, it will be difficult, and sometimes impossible, for him to cause a pregnancy. Male infertility is diagnosed when, after testing both partners, reproductive problems have been found in the male.

Treatments:

Fertility drugs can be used to regulate and induce ovulation. But they carry with them certain risks and therefore you should consult your physician prior to consumption. Few examples of these drugs are Clomiphene Citrate, Gonadotropins, Metformin, Letrozole and Bromocriptine.

  1. Surgical procedures can be recommended to correct reproductive abnormalities and restore fertility. A laparoscopic surgery or a tubal ligation reversal surgery (a surgery that unites one’s fallopian tubes again in order to enable the woman to have a baby) can be advised by the doctor.

  2. Reproductive assistance by Intrauterine insemination (a process that involves putting sperms inside a woman’s uterus in order to help her conceive) and Assisted reproductive technology (consisting of IVF and surrogacy). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am a 65 years old female. I am a diabetic patient but the sugar is under control. I suffer from kidney (urine) infection for the past 3 years. Despite several allopatic medicines the infection is not subsiding. The infection is caused by e-coli bacteria. Kindly prescribe the right medicine.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Diabetics are prone to different systemic and local infection. Female are very prone to urinary tract infection, which turns to be a chronic one due to negligence or ignorance in the part of patient who do not comply with medical advice. Once it become recurring infection it becomes very problematic but not impossible to cure such condition. What you need is to talk to a urologist / nephrologist for following: a) to assess kidney function, b) to find out whether there is any persistent infection and if yes, causative organism and its drug sensitivity. C) then treat the condition with appropriate medicine for at least 2 - 3 weeks. D) and follow-up treatment for a prolonged period, at least for 3 - 6 months (may be more) to prevent infection. E) side by side good blood sugar control is to be achieved. This part is your diabetologist's job. So, hope you could understand. Please do as I said.

To treat diabetes one has to either take insulin injections or oral antidiabetic drugs. The choice of medication will depend upon blood sugar levels and hba1c%. Apart from medication one has to control the diet and exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day. Please remember the treatment is for life time, there is no cure.
