Remember you have Thalassemia and that is major cause in your problem. So no permanent cure may be possible but if you stop thinking it as a problem and stay tension free, I am sure you will enjoy your sex more better. Eat fresh fruits and fresh vegetables and go for morning brisk walk for one hour and rest of your body complaints will slowly go away. Tension too cause strained muscles at neck and shoulders which on long run may cause pain. Follow that, I am sure it will help you.

Diabetes is a progressive disease

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes is a progressive disease,
An analysis from the united kingdom prospective diabetes study (ukpds) found that 50 percent of patients originally controlled with a single drug required the addition of a second drug after three years; by nine years 75 percent of patients need multiple therapies to achieve the target hemoglobin a1c (hba1c) value, which is the average blood sugar of the last three months.

After a successful initial response to oral therapy, patients fail to maintain target a1c levels (<7 percent) at a rate of 5 to 10 percent per year.

This means that all diabetic patients will start with one drug and will invariably end up with three with or without the addition of insulin within 10 years.

A1c should be done every three months until <7 percent and then at least every 6 months and should be preferred over the fasting sugar levels. It represents the average blood sugar of the last three months and the value should be kept lower than 7%.

Regardless of the initial response to therapy, the natural history of most patients with type 2 diabetes for blood glucose concentrations is to rise gradually with time.

Initial treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus includes education, with emphasis on lifestyle changes including diet, exercise and weight reduction when appropriate. Monotherapy with metformin is indicated for most patients and insulin may be indicated for initial treatment for some.

In the absence of contraindications, metformin is usually the initial therapy for most patients with type 2 diabetes.

When i shake my penis sperms come out please tell me that it have any effect or not?
Hello, you mean masturbation, if you are excessively involved then it is definitely harmful for you and it is necessary to know its side effects. These are as follows:-1. Masturbation makes you weak, it spends more energy and burns your calorie. 2. Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3. Masturbation is a main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4. Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time. Controlling it is a very big menace. 5. Masturbation creates drowsiness; you will be sleeping most of the time after ejaculation of your sperm. You will experience a damn tired. 6. Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7. Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one to feel bad on his own. ***take staphysagria 200, 5 drops once in a week.***
