Male Menopause - Can Homeopathic Remedies Help Treat it?

Male Menopause - Can Homeopathic Remedies Help Treat it?

Do men encounter a comparable physiological stage to what women encounter amid menopause? Alluded to as 'andropause', 'male menopause', 'man-opause', and all the more as of late, 'low T', is called as Andropause or male menopause. In any case, while all women experience menopause, not all men encounter andropause.

What Is Andropause?
Andropause is a slow, enduring disease in the male hormones testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone. Testosterone naturally diminishes as men age, yet in andropause (therapeutically characterized as 'hypogonadism'), levels of the hormone drop below the ordinary range for a given age, commonly in moderately aged men.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone Level:
Do low level of testosterone deliver symptoms in moderately aged men? Actually, the exemplary symptoms were initially perceived over 70 years prior when two American physicians, Carl Heller, MD, and Gordon Myers, MD, demonstrated the adequacy of testosterone treatment for symptoms of weakness, discouragement, fractiousness, low sex drive, erectile brokenness, night sweats and hot flashes in men.

Why Do Hormones Drop?
There are various elements that can prompt to low testosterone:

  1. Obesity, diabetes and insulin resistance: The level of aggregate and free testosterone is decreased in large men in extent to the level of heftiness. Weight reduction alone has been appeared to build testosterone levels by 50 percent.
  2. Chronic aggravation: Insulin resistance is the key figure creating quiet irritation and lifted levels of high-affectability C-responsive protein (hs-CRP), a marker of aggravation that can be measured by a blood test.
  3. Increased introduction to xenoestrogens: Certain mixes found in nourishment and the environment can increase the impacts of estrogen in men, in this manner decreasing testosterone creation. These "xenoestrogens" incorporate pesticides, phthalates from plastics, tobacco smoke side effects, substantial metals, and solvents.
  4. Lack of physical movement: Participating in consistent episodes of short, extreme work out, particularly weight lifting, is one of the speediest approaches to support testosterone.
  5. Stress: It negatively affects testosterone levels by expanding the arrival of the adrenal hormone cortisol.

Homeopathic Medicines for Andropause: (Medicines should be taken on proper prescription of Doctor)

  1. Ashwagandha
  2. Suma
  3. Avena sativa
  4. Maca
  5. Catuaba
  6. Tongkat ali
  7. Muira puama

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopathy and ask a free question.

General Physician,
You will never have complaints with diabetes, until you develop complications, and thats why many diabetes people ignore this disease or don't take it seriously. Diabetes is silent killer, and it kills slowly if not controlled, obviously you should see a doc and start your rx. Do your hba1c.

Ophthalmologist, Chennai
Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye problem that can be caused by either type 1 or type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Retinopathy occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels in the retina. The weakened blood vessels may leak fluid and blood.

Who are at risk for developing diabetic retinopathy?

Those with poorly controlled blood sugar levels are at a high risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. In addition, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anemia, kidney disease and pregnancy can all place a patient at greater risk of suffering from diabetic eye disease.

How frequently should I get my eye examined?

If you have diabetes, you should get a yearly examination by your ophthalmologist. Once you develop diabetic retinopathy, your ophthalmologist may advise further investigations or treatment. A periodic follow up as advised by your ophthalmologist is mandatory. The frequency of these follow up visits is decided based on the severity of the disease.

What are the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy?

There may be no symptoms in the early stages, especially when the central portion of the retina is not involved. As the retinopathy progresses, you may have:

- Blurred vision.
- Floaters, which can look like black spots, little threads, or cobwebs.
- Bleeding in the eye causing sudden loss of vision.
- Temporary or permanent loss of vision.
- Pain is not a common feature of the disease.

You do not mention ppbs, it require to control. You have to increase blood testing frequently and on that doctor can increase dose. So in your case you can increase your tab to two- one in morning and one in evening, but you have to go for regular blood sugar check up every 3 to 4 days. And have to consult your doctor. If you can start exercise daily one hour and strict diet control- than no need to increase medicine dose- preferable.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thyroid is the normal gland present is all of us, producing hormones T3 & T4 (thyroxine), which are essential for brain development, daily functioning of it and various metabolic functions in the body. Deficiency of thyroid function causes hypothyroidism - leading to weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, pain in joints and muscles, swelling of face, legs, dry skin, dry hair. Hair fall, anxiety and depression. In females it can lead to infertility, irregular menstruation etc. It can be treated by taking adequate dose of thyroxine hormone. Thanks.
