Hi, I'm suffering from hypothyroidism, on medication for the past 05 years (eltroxin 100 mcg). My problem is pre mature ejaculation, is this condition is directly related to hypothyroidism? I could last for only one or two minutes. Please suggest a solution. I used to masturbate a lot since I'm 14 (3-5 times a day ), that too in a vigorous fashion.

Hello. Please continue eltroxin for your hypothyroidism and get your thyroid profile checked periodically. Premature ejaculation can be helped by use of some medicines and behavioral modifications techniques. Please consult a physician/ psychiatrist/ sex specialist for the same. Thanks.

Sugar - 5 Reasons to Avoid It

Sugar - 5 Reasons to Avoid It

Simple sugar is also known as monosaccharide, is the basic unit of carbohydrates. The simplest forms of sugar are usually colourless and crystalline and exist in forms of glucose, fructose and galactose. Simple sugar is deemed to be a major concern according to all health nutritionists.

Here are five reasons why you should avoid them:

  1. Sugar is the biggest cause of obesity: Sugar present in all kinds of junk food is considered to be the biggest cause of obesity as fructose easily converts into fat inside your body. Consuming too much sugar can put too much pressure on your liver as it is responsible for converting fructose into fat. Large amounts of sugar are directly converted into fat, thus, putting you at a very high risk of becoming obese.
  2. Increases risks of contracting heart diseases: Consuming too much sugar throughout the day causes a hike in your insulin levels which can further affect your nervous system. An excess of sugar in your blood stream also causes your blood pressure to rise which makes you more likely to get a heart stroke. Thus, to avoid cardiac problems at a young age, you must cut down your sugar intake.
  3. Weakens immune system: Sugar is a major reason for inflammation which affects the central immune system adversely. With an excess intake of sugar, the body becomes less effective in dealing with infection and common cold because phagocytes (white blood cells) cannot do their job properly of engulfing dangerous bacteria. Thus, you should aim at boosting your immune system by cutting down on sugar completely.
  4. Sugar can make you age faster: The sugar content in your body creates molecules known as AGEs (Advanced glycation end products) which attack the fibres in elastin and collagen (the building blocks of the cells on your skin). A study also proved that consuming too much sugar can result in acne as the collagen in your skin weakens. Thus, to maintain youthful looking skin for longer, you should remove sugar from your diet completely.
  5. Sugar can be addictive: Most people who consume too much sugar get addicted to it. According to a study, the addiction to sugar is very similar to addiction to tobacco and drugs. You might start craving sugar and depending on it to change your mood more often than required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello lybrate-user, in type 1 diabetes, insulin is the only line of management. Some newer drug are approved by FDA but they are add-on to your insulin and efficacy wise these drugs are not effective as single therapy but insulin can't be substituted.

The glucose urine test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in a urine sample. The presence of glucose in the urine is called glycosuria or glucosuria. An albumin test checks urine for a protein called albumin. Albumin is normally found in the blood and filtered by the kidneys. When the kidneys are working as they should, there may be a very small amount of albumin in the urine. But when the kidneys are damaged, abnormal amounts of albumin leak into the urine. Proteinuria is a condition when there is excess protein in the urine. So the protein tests are different. Albumin test is specific.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

I am 68 Years male, having diabetes since long back. Use of insulin was started from the year 2003, with 6 units of insulin 3 times daily. Gradually the intake of insulin increased, currently, I am consuming Mixtard 30/70 insulin 3 times a day with 20 units each time. Two years ago I underwent bypass surgery. Recently I have tested sugar levels from a lab (Fasting & after lunch) Reports are 142 Mg% & 242 Mg %.Along with this test, I have done HbA1c test and report is 10.2%, which is considered poor control .For deep monitoring, I have started testing at home at fasting, after breakfast, after lunch & after dinner. Observation is mentioned below. 14.12.2016 - 145, 310, 285, 240 15.12.2016 - 152, 317, 267 16.12.2016 - 129, 232, 207, 305 17.12.2016 - 156, 329, 248, 242 Kindly advise me, how much insulin should I take to keep blood sugar level in a normal range? Should I take rapid-acting insulin once in a day to maintain BSL in a normal range?

Mixtard 30/70 is 12 hr insulin and should be given twice daily. Considering your current reports your post meal sugars are high throughout day. Ideally you should be on basal bolus regimen (glargine as basal and rapid acting insulins like lispro as bolus before each meals) alternatively some OHAs like voglibose or gliptins can be tried for post meal peaks. It is advisable to consult a good diabetologist for managing your sugars as more detail history needed for optimum control.

The effectiveness of Ayurvedic medicine in treating diabetes is well documented. The efficacy of herbs widely recommended in Ayurvedic texts for normalizing the blood sugar level has been validated in several clinical trials. In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhu meha. Owing to the adverse effect of high blood sugar on nearly every vital organ of the body, diabetes is referred to as ?maharoga? or the major disease in Ayurveda.Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes contain herbs that help to lower the blood sugar level by regulating metabolism of carbohydrates, regulating sugar absorption, stimulating insulin secretion and improving sensitivity to the hormone insulin. Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar) Gymnema sylvestre is an effective hypoglycemic component in Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes. The common name of the herb is Gurmar, which means the sugar crusher. The efficacy of Gymnema sylvestre leaves in reducing the blood sugar level has been demonstrated in experimental and clinical studies. Treatment with the herb helps to lower the fasting blood sugar level. By assisting regeneration of the residual pancreatic beta cells, it reduces dependence on insulin medications. Coccinia Indica Coccinia indica is a powerful anti-diabetic agent. By regulating breakdown of starch, it helps to prevent sudden surge of blood sugar after consuming carbohydrates. It could also protect the vital organs from the adverse effect of high blood sugar level.
