I am suffering from diabetics as well as bipolar disorder. I take medicines for both. I have been taking lithosun since a very long time and due to that I found it had put a adverse effect on my kidney. My creatinine has increased to 2.0. So I want to know which of the two medicine i.e lithosun 600 or lithosun sr has more adverse effect on the kidney?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Lithium in large doses can affect kidneys. Even uncontrolled diabetes also can affect kidneys. Whether one takes 600 mg or a SR (sustained release) tablet both can affect kidney when used for a long time. Similarly if blood glucose is uncontrolled that too damages the filtering unit of the kidney. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user hussain, treatment for diabetes depends on severity of blood sugar level & type of diabetes. Similarly treatment for high bp is also decided on the basis of severity and presence of other conditions. So to decide on treament one needs to know fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%. Plus dietary pattern and extent of exercise done daily. You can eat all green leafy vegetables, & salads like palak, methi, tomato, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, capsicum etc.

Random sugar less than 140mg% is acceptable if your hba1c is less than 7% and kidney functions are normal then you can continue the same medicine.

Graves disease of thyroid being on higher side is related to stress of puberty, pregnancy and postpartum periods and any other stress you're lucky to have normal levels during pregnancy as medicines to reduce thyroxine secreted by high thyroid carry lots of side effects and aren't safer during pregnancy regarding using radio active for Graves disease, just forget about it and move on analyze the cause hope to get cured on it's own like the books say Graves disease is self limiting. observe symptoms minus medicines and don't get thyroid profile done too often. rely more on symptoms and then get tested and take treatment if needed

Infertility - Causes And Treatment

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility - Causes And Treatment

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. For women aged 35 and older, inability to conceive after 6 months is generally considered infertility. Repeated pregnancy loss (2 or more spontaneous pregnancy losses) can also be considered infertility. Recent estimates indicate infertility affects 10-15 percent of the population in their childbearing years.

If you experience recurrent pregnancy loss, or if you have not been able to become pregnant within a year (six months if the woman’s age is over 35, 2-3 months if over 40), then you may benefit from assessment and treatment by a reproductive endocrinologist - a doctor with a special interest, training and expertise in the area of infertility. It’s a state that results in the abnormal functioning of the male or female reproductive system.

The causes for infertility could be:

  1. Male factor - erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, problems with quality, count and quantity of semen

  2. Female factor - Tubal factor, ovulatory problems, abnormality of uterus, hormonal imbalance 

  3. Antisperm antibodies

The prime symptom is very obvious i.e. unable to have baby despite of having sex without any contraceptives.

Factors affecting fertility:

  1. Age: Female fertility gradually declines in the 30s, particularly after age 35. Each month that she tries, a healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has a 20% chance of getting pregnant.

  2. Smoking: It increases risk of getting infertile and reduces the chances of treatment.

  3. Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol is said to lower the sperm count in men.

  4. Obesity: An overweight person has a higher chances of having sperm abnormality.

  5. Workout: Less or very heavy work out is said to increase the chances of infertility.

  6. Mental Stress: Studies suggests that ovulation and sperm production may be affected by mental stress. If at least one partner is stressed it is possible that the frequency of sexual intercourse is less, resulting in a lower chance of conception.

  7. Sexually Transmitted infections can also adversely affect the fertility of a person.

When to take further advice and course of action?

In case the women trying to conceive is less than 35 years of age, then 12 months and if more than 35 years, then in 6 months itself one needs to get in touch with the Specialist/Reproductive Endocrinologist/Gynaecologist or a Urologist for a complete diagnosis.

Many cases of apparent infertility are treatable. Infertility may have a single cause in one of the partners, or it could be the result of a combination of factors in both men and women.

There are many treatments available that improve the chances of having a baby. Such treatments include:

  1. Hormones treatment

  2. Drugs for fertility

  3. Surgery in some cases

Also one the oldest form of medications such as Ayurveda as well as Homeopathy is said to have a wonderful treatment of Infertility. With the developments in medical sciences, there are lot of treatments available; however, such treatments sometimes become the victim of their own success causing multiple births – Two, Three or may be more.

Some Assisted Treatments are:

  1. Intrauterine insemination

  2. In Vitro Fertilization

  3. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection

  4. Donation of Sperm or Egg

  5. Assisted Hatching

  6. Electric or Vibratory Stimulation to achieve ejaculation

  7. Surgical Sperm Aspiration

It is important to understand the complete treatment before going ahead and be aware of the possible outcomes and be psychologically ready.

Please do not keep it to yourself and consult an expert. Never go for self medication! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am type ii diabetic patient. My sugar level above 400. What will be the cause if I used to consume liquor.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The mentioned blood glucose level is too high (fasting or after food is not mentioned). This shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. It is a very serious matter as such a high glucose level will precipitate multiple long term complications associated with diabetes involving all vital organ systems much rapidly. So it is absolutely essential to control glucose levels quickly. Ideally fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. From such a high glucose level it is clear that your present treatment is totally inadequate. It needs to be upgraded. You are a sure candidate for regular Insulin treatment along with oral antidiabetics. As regards use of alcohol, is definitely not advisable is such a severe diabetes. Because already there is a stress on the metabolic activity and alcohol will further damage the liver, plus it will blunt the response to recognise sudden changes in blood glucose levels. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If hypothyroidism is uncontrolled then weight gain will continue. When on treatment it is essential to maintain TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. Looking at your weight and height with a BMI of 29.85 kgs/M2 you have almost grade 1 obesity. It appears that the dose being taken is not adequate. It has to be increased. That will depend on TSH, T4 level and body weight. So please come back with those details. Once when higher dose is started, you will have to check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks to see if the desired level is reached or not. If you do not control hypothyroidism then all the efforts to reduce weight will not be fruitful at all. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, 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. Check your blood sugar both in fasting and 2 hours after meal.

Diabetes is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action. In case of t1 diabetes there is a total absence of insulin (no beta cells). In addition over weight and inactivity also contribute. Diabetes is diagnosed by checking blood sugar levels. Fasting >126 mg and pp >200 mg per 100 ml of blood. Precautions to be taken are exercising daily more than 1 h, maintaining near normal weight and taking a balanced diet.

Hello, If the person has T1 diabetes, then the only treatment is taking Insulin injections for lifetime. There are no oral drugs available. The reason being in these persons there is No Insulin production by Beta ells of pancreas. Since Insulin is needed for glucose, protein and fat metabolism constantly, then it has to be supplemented every day from outside. So it is said in Type 1 DM Insulin is needed for treatment and for survival of the patient. Thanks.
