Causes of male infertility:
Methods of Diagnosis
Scrotal ultrasound. This test uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside the body. A scrotal ultrasound can help the doctor see if there is a varicocele or other problems in the testicles and supporting structures. Hormone testing. Hormones produced by the pituitary gland, hypothalamus and testicles play a key role in sexual development and sperm production.
Abnormalities in other hormonal or organ systems might also contribute to infertility.
A blood test measures the level of testosterone and other hormones.
Post-ejaculation urinalysis. Sperm in your urine can indicate that sperm are traveling backward into the bladder instead of out your penis during ejaculation (retrograde ejaculation).
Genetic tests. When sperm concentration is extremely low, there could be a genetic cause. A blood test can reveal whether there are subtle changes in the Y chromosome — signs of a genetic abnormality. Genetic testing might be ordered to diagnose various congenital or inherited syndromes.
Testicular biopsy. This test involves removing samples from the testicle with a needle. If the results of the testicular biopsy show that sperm production is normal , then the problem is likely caused by a blockage or another problem with sperm transport. However, this test is not commonly used to diagnose the cause of infertility.
Specialized sperm function tests. A number of tests can be used to check how well the sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg, and whether there's any problem attaching to the egg. Generally, these tests are rarely performed and often do not significantly change recommendations for treatment.
Transrectal ultrasound. A small, lubricated wand is inserted into the rectum. It allows the doctor to check prostate, and look for blockages of the tubes that carry semen (ejaculatory ducts and seminal vesicles).
There are several ways to control your blood sugar levels, like doing simple exercises, following a diabetic diet, etc. However, when your condition goes beyond your control, you may need to embrace some lifestyle changes to manage it well. Lifestyle changes are mostly recommended for those diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes as well as for those living with a higher risk of developing the condition.
1. Involvement in physical activities
Involving yourself in any form of physical activity or exercising for 30 minutes will allow you to manage your blood glucose levels in an efficient way. Physical activities include:
Cycling on an even land
However, if you feel too tired while practicing the above-mentioned activities, it is better to be safe and discontinue them.
2. Maintaining a healthy weight
Obesity or being overweight is the main cause for the spike of blood sugar levels in your body. Thus, it is vital for you to maintain a healthy weight to bring your blood glucose to a normal level. You can follow a healthy diet plan that contains more protein and fewer carbohydrates. Moreover, eating more calories than those you burn is the main reason for the increase in insulin levels. Consuming a mixture of vegetables and fruits will significantly decrease the danger of diabetes. Avoid eating food items that are rich in hydrogenated fat, sugar, and saturated fat. Moreover, maintaining your BMI from 19 to 30 will allow you to control the condition effectively.
3. Quit all types of alcohol drinks
Usually, alcoholic drinks have the tendency of dehydrating your body. This will boost the levels of blood glucose in your body and will lead to further health complications, such as cardiac arrest or stroke. If you want to drink on special occasions, it is better and safe to know the amount well in advance by consulting your family doctor.
4. Quit your smoking habit
Diabetics are more prone to a variety of health problems, such as eye infection, kidney disease, stroke, blood vessel ailment, foot problems, nerve damage, etc., smoking will further increase the chance of suffering from them. Therefore, quitting your smoking habit will allow you to manage your condition easily.
