Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 33.34 kg/m2. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Weight reduction is possible when you control hypothyroidism effectively with tsh levels being maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Along with that there has to be a strict diet control and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day. Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. Thanks for the question.

Hi -happy to help you. I can say that diabetes is biggest problem in india. So not merely sexual capacity but we should think all disorders & prventions. You can go for a 1200- 1400 kcal/day diet plan. No sugar, take gourds more, briown rice, citrus fruits etc. Curd (sour), skim milk, low rice but more whole grains/multi grains, low fried foods, no out side junk, best all home made foods, no stress, yoga/ exercises help more.

When should I do the screening test for diabetes mellitus if I have strong predisposing factor?
Yogaji, if you want to check out, do it any time now. A fasting and after food glucose test will give an idea. Fasting sugar level of 70 to 110 mg and after food <140 mg / 100 ml levels are normal. Fasting >126 mg pp >200 mg /100 ml is diabetes. Fasting 100 to 125 mg is impaired fasting glucose. Pp 141 to 199 mg is impaired glucose tolerance also called as pre diabetic condition.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

I heard 2 cases recently where I was told by the patients themselves that they were non-vegetarian earlier. By this reason or that, they stopped it and followed strict veg diet. Meanwhile they developed Diabetes. When they consulted physicians, they were asked about earlier lifestyle and current lifestyle, the physicians asked them to resume non-vegetarian diet as the body was adjusted to non-veg diet and in its absence insulin insufficiency prevailed even though they had started taking alternate protein rich diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am not aware of anything like that can happen. Change from non-vegetarian to vegetarian food causes any alteration in insulin secretion. This is most unlikely to happen. In fact many people are changing over to vegetarian diet as it is supposed to be better, but for proteins. I have not come across anything of that in any studies. Thanks.

Male Infertility and its Treatment

MBBS
Sexologist, Indore
Infertility is defined as failure to conceive after 1 yr of unprotected intercourse, affects 15% of couples within the reproductive age group and male partener is contributory in half the case.
Infertility has significant social impact on india. Evaluation of male should occur simultaneously with female partner when there is no pregnancy after one year of regular unprotected intercourse. Semen ananysis is not a test of fertility. Fertility is couple related phenonmenon. The patient can not considered fertile only on the basis of normal semen analysis. It was shown that 30% of patients with normal semen analysis have abnormal sperm function. Semen anaysis should be performed according to 2010 who guidelines.
Male fertility problems ranges from decreased production of sperm (oligospemia) motility defect (asthaenospermia) morphology defect (teratospermia) or non-measurable level of sperm (azoospermia) which is diagnosed in 2% of general population. Azoospermia is one of the major reproductive disorders which causes male infertility in humans. Genetic factors are responsible for 1/3 rd case of azoospermia. There are two types of azoospermia obstructive and non-obstructive.
Obstructive azoospermia is defined as absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate despite normal spermatogenesis and affects 6%-13.6% of infertile male while non-obstructive azoospermia is most severe form of azoospermia which affects 10% of infertile male.
Sperm retrived can be achieved in case of azoospermia through pesa (percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration) mesa (microscopic epididymal sperm aspiration) tesa (testicular sperm aspiration or micro tese (microscopic testicular sperm extraction).
The appearance of 5 th edition of who manual (2010) is radical shift in understanding fertility in men. The 5 th edition of the who manual for semen analysis includes for first time reference values for human semen characteristics. Sperm counts >15 m are considered normal which means fertility is possible although it is imp to remember that higher values up to >140 m are known to increase fertility probability, values between 15-140 m represents a category of male subfertility.
Introduction of icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) or testtube baby has brought hope for men when severe male factor infertility and provide them chance to become biological fathers.

Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

The World Health Organization (WHO) calls infertility “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.”
Infertility can occur in both women and men. Primary infertility is infertility in a couple who have never had a child, while secondary infertility is failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy. A woman who doesn’t conceive and/or is unable to carry a full-term pregnancy is labeled as infertile.

Causes of infertility in women

Infertility in women is caused by many factors like infections and ageing amongst others like the following:

  1. High FSH - Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland in the body. It stimulates follicle growth in the ovary and causes the eggs to mature for fertilization. FSH levels increase with age and high FSH levels in blood can mean that the ovaries are not functioning too well and hence it can be a likely reason for infertility.
  2. Blocked fallopian tubes - Blocked fallopian tubes or ‘fallopian tube obstruction’ is the biggest reason for infertility in women. We all know that fertilization happens inside the fallopian tubes, so an obstruction here means an absence of fertilization and pregnancy.
  3. Endometriosis - Women with endometriosis experience a drop in fertility by almost 12-35%. It is a condition where the lining of the uterus starts growing, not in the uterus, but elsewhere in the abdomen i.e. ovaries, fallopian tube and the pelvic area.
  4. Fibroids- These are non-cancerous tumours inside or around the uterus.
  5. Age- The biggest reason for infertility in women is their age. If a woman’s age is 35 plus, her ovaries do not function properly and release less eggs, which are not very healthy.
  6. Hormonal imbalance - These cause ovulatory malfunctions and poor egg development.
  7. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) - PCOS is a type of hormonal imbalance, which leads to production of excessive male hormones in a woman’s body, thereby causing infertility.

Can Ayurveda boost fertility in women?

According to Ayurveda, infertility arises when ‘shukra dhatu’, which produces eggs in women and sperms in men, is weak due to lack of proper nutrition. This could be due to poor digestion or an absence of a balanced diet or due to the presence of ‘ama’ or toxins in the body.

According to Ayurveda, sexual indulgence and promiscuity can also cause infertility due to the decrease in ‘shukra dhatu’.

Ayurvedic fertility enhancers for women

  1. Ashoka – It stimulates the endometrium found in the uterus and ovaries and aids in ovulation.
  2. Lodhra – It cures all female disorders that stop conception and regulates levels of reproductive hormones like FSH and LH, which are essential for conception.
  3. Shatavari – It nourishes the ovum or egg and enhances fertility as it contains estrogen-like compounds.
  4. Gokshura – This herb is helpful for both men and women. It works as a fertility tonic in women by stimulating the ovaries and thus cures PCOS, a leading cause of female infertility.

Ayurveda also recommends a diet rich in food items like ghee, milk, almonds, walnuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds to improve overall health and thus enhance levels of ‘shukra dhatu’ in the body. Since ‘vata’ dosha is closely associated with the reproductive system in women, Ayurveda also assigns a lot of value to its regulation for proper ovulation and stress control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Get her thyroid profile done again, get any eye check for her glasses. Also you should get her blood pressure and sugar level checked up. For pain you can take basic paracetamol medication.
