Infertility is the term usually described to a condition when a “woman” who is unable to conceive even after 6 months of unprotected sex. Its usually a self diagnosable condition which is treated by medical professional. A woman should seek a medical treatment when she is 35 or above by trying more than 6 months of unprotected sex. There are several treatments like “invitro” fertilization that provides good results for the infertile couples.
The main cause may include irregular periods, thyroid problems, diabetes, or hormonal imbalances.
As a dietitian, I would extend my hands and request you all people reading this to join my hands and lets begin to beat infertility through dietary modifications and lifestyle pattern changes.
Here are the foods to be avoided while you are trying to conceive.
Red meat since it possess high ammonia, that would interfere in the implantation of uterus. Its high acidic content, reduces the sperm cell count and lead to infertile condition.
Avoid trans fats in baked foods, processed foods, fried foods, in simple avoid eating out. Have a healthy foods prepared in home with less oils. The consumption may decrease your insulin and so makes you diabetic.
Avoid refined sugars instead take honey, jaggery, for sweetness.
It’s good to avoid non organic chicken that may produce imbalance in your hormones and thus leading to infertility.
Complete avoidance of alcohol
So, its not about the complete avoidance, you can have it occasionally. So be chill that you wont be pushed to that extreme of total abstinence to these foods. But there are some foods that I would prefer you to consume often or even daily. Here is the list
Beans, the vegetable with full of vitamins and minerals, provides you all healthy beneficiaries, as it aids in the digestion, keeps your body toxic free, so that the sperms that enters have a healthy atmosphere for development.
Leafy vegetables the essential food in all healthy diet plan, since it contains folate the vitamin, that is required for improving ovulation.
Pumpkin, specially its seeds, for the iron it provides.
Take complex carbs like whole wheat, brown rice, etc. As it may protect you from getting diabetes.
Olive oil possessing good amount of monounsaturated oil, helps in lowering the inflammation if there is any.

Infertility is a condition that can be caused due to a variety of reasons, for both males as well as females. Yet, it also comes with plenty of emotional baggage because there is a great deal of social stigma attached to childless parents, especially in the developing countries like India, where we still hold on to traditional thinking which does not really justify modern day realities.
Understanding Infertility in the Developing World: As per medical science, infertility is defined as a problem that is faced by couples who do not manage to conceive even after a year of trying without any birth control measures. In countries like ours, there is a great social stigma that is attached to being childless. As per many studies by the World Health Organization (WHO), about 15% of couples the world over are affected by infertility. Also, such cases go undetected because there is a great social stigma attached to the same. Further, there may be underlying conditions like Tuberculosis which may have been undiagnosed because people do not like to talk to doctors about the symptoms. The main problem in countries like India, and others areas is that people do not open up about such problems and they consider doctors and other medical practitioners as strangers.
Still in the Dark Ages: Even though we have made the transition from an agricultural country where we would pray to the elements and wait for signs for all our everyday activities from harvesting to childbirth, to an industrial country we are still in the dark ages as far as our social setup goes. There are many educated and well-heeled families where being childless is considered as an issue. And many people tend to go to astrologers and temples to change their fate, where a simple visit to a doctor and procedures like IVF, or adoption as the last resort, can also work out.
Infertility Stigma for Males and Females: For an infertile couple, the problem may stem from the male, or the female or both partners. There are still many social stigmas that are attached to this and many people in countries like India tend to call the woman barren, if she is unable to bear a child. In many cases, the male partner does not even go in for a check up as it is not even considered as an option that the problem might lie with him. Male erectile dysfunction, ejaculation problems, and general infertility can cause a range of issues for the couple when it comes to conception. So it is imperative to have the same checked by the doctor so that a sperm test can also be conducted and the treatment can carry on accordingly with the help of IUI or In-vitro fertilization (IVF). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Each tiny action we commit involves the risk of a condition, disease or disorder. For instance, sneezing a bit too hard can rupture an eye vessel, or having your face right up against the wind in a moving bus can expose you to germs. Diabetes is as prevalent as common cold in every household and there is no end to the list of causes that can make you suffer from it. While regular check-ups, medications, insulin shots can help you cope, there are certain measures that if followed, can enable you to avoid the risk of secondary yet fatal diseases. Diabetic nephropathy is one such condition.
When Kidney is affected to the extent that it cannot perform its functions(like excretion of wastes in urine, filtering blood from waste, maintaining electrolyte balance,etc.) properly, it is called as Nephropathy. The reason behind kidney damage could be many, but if diabetes is the prime cause, it is known as diabetic nephropathy in medical terms.
A few features of this disorder are as follows:
- The kidneys comprise of several small blood vessels, which perform the function of sifting waste from your blood. Diabetes at an advanced stage can impede smooth functioning of these vessels. As a result, the kidneys malfunction or a person faces kidney failure.
- Nephropathy brings along some other health issues as well. A person's blood pressure may increase as a result, thus making him or her prone to heart attacks and strokes. Sharp rise in cholesterol and triglyceride levels has also been noticed.
- A doctor will check for the presence of a protein called albumin in the patient's urine to know if you suffer from nephropathy or not. Other tests to determine the functioning of kidneys are - S.Creatinine, eGFR, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR), 24 Hour Urine Protein, Renal Function Tests, etc. A diabetic person should therefore go in for yearly tests.
In a given situation such as this, dialysis or kidney transplant comes to your aid. Both are done when kidney functions are irreversibly damaged. Dialysis can be of two kinds; Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis. Dialysis (also called as Renal Replacement Therapy) remedies kidney damage and kidney failure by using a machine to extract salts, wastes and other fluids in excess from the blood to let your blood have a healthy composition. Dialysis should only be done under the supervision of an experienced nephrologist for best results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
I have a diabetes problem before 3 years and some times it goes to high so tell me that how I can remove this problem from my life.
From core ingredients used in your day to day cooking like salt and flour to biscuits and snacks, a lot of the food we eat comes pre-packaged. It is only by reading the labels does one find out the nutritional value of the food. Diabetics need to be much more aware of what they are eating as compared to others. Hence it is best to avoid processed and packaged foods. If you must snack on them, do not skip reading the label. Here are a few things you should take notice of.
- Serving Size: All the nutritional information given on the package is relative to the suggested serving size. For example, a 100gm and 200gm pack of biscuits may have the same nutritional data printed on the packet but the total nutritional value of both packets will be different. This is because the nutritional values printed are likely to be based on a serving size of 10 or 20 gms. Thus, you will need to adjust your calorie calculations on the basis of the amount you eat and the suggested serving size.
- Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the body’s prime source of energy but excess carbohydrates get stored in the body as fat. Hence, it is important to limit your carbohydrate intake. This is usually mentioned in terms of grams on food packets. 15 grams of carbohydrates is considered equal to 1 serving of carbohydrates.
- Fats: For a diabetic, fat intake must be limited to the minimal amount required by the body. Packaged foods mention cholesterol, trans fat and saturated fat content on the label. In case of all three, the lower the amount, the healthier the food item. You should aim at consuming less than 200mg of cholesterol per day and only pick food that has less than 1 gram of saturated fat or 0.5 gram of trans fat per serving.
- Protein: Eating a protein rich snack can help keep you satiated for longer and hence reduce your urge to snack on other foods. Foods like meat, eggs, chicken, soy, beans, peas, nuts and seeds are rich sources of proteins. However, if you have kidney damage, your doctor may advise you to limit your protein intake. Hence pay attention to the protein content of packaged foods.
- Sodium and potassium: Sodium and potassium help regulate blood pressure. Hence both should be consumed in limited amounts. If you suffer from a kidney disease, your doctor may advise you to reduce your potassium intake to prevent cardiac problems.
- Read Label: Wwhile reading the label we should also see the ingredients, the calorie content, the presence of preservatives etc.
Bitter gourd: There are certain evidences that consumption of bitter gourd in any form in one’s daily menu, may result in the prevention or control of diabetes. Charantin helps in lowering the blood glucose level. Lectin, reduces the blood glucose level by suppressing the appetite and making the stored glucose to be used up by the body. The mechanism behind the activity is that it reduces the amount of glucose by inhibiting the enzymes that breakdown the disaccharides to monosaccharide.
Fenugreek seeds: Fenugreek seeds are high in soluble fiber which helps in lowering the blood glucose level by slowing down the digestion and thus slow absorption of carbohydrates. Consume 1 tsp of fenugreek powder in a warm water everyday early in the morning in the empty stomach.
Amla: The anti oxidant property of amla is responsible for lowering of blood glucose level in the diabetics. The polyphenol rich fruit has the property of assisting in the proper absorption of insulin leading to a drop in the blood sugar level. Consuming 1-3gms of amla powder everyday reduces the blood sugar level.
Curry leaves: Curry leaves affect the insulin activity of the body thus reduces the blood glucose level. Eating 10 fully grown curry leaves every morning for 3 consecutive months will keep away the hereditary diabetes and obesity caused diabetes.
Guava: Guava ids rich in dietary fiber which helps in the reduction of blood glucose level. The fiber present aids in the relief of constipation thus lowering the chance of developing type 2 diabetes. Guava leaves are healthy too. Dry the leaves and crush them and boil them in water to get all the essential inggrediant to the water. Consume it. The leaves can prevent from diabetes and reduce the blood sugar level.
Drumstick leaves: Drumstick leaves are rich in ascorbic acid which leads to the reduction of blood glucose level by increasing the insulin secreation in the body. It maintain the body glucose level and hence display the anti-diabetic property and recognized to be the natural way to manage diabetes.
Cinnamon: Consuming 1-6gms of cinnamon powder for 40 days aids in the reduction of blood glucose level by 18-29%. It may be allergic to some people, stop consuming if you notices any side effects, otherwise continue to enjoy the benefits.
