Hello, I’m Dr Vinod Raina. I’m a sexologist. Today we are going to talk about male infertility. Nowadays it has been seen that a number of couples who get married are not able to conceive after their marriage.

What is the reason?

It has been seen that the number of males are suffering from infertility problems. The quality of the sperm is not good. The morphology of the sperms is not good and more over the quantity is also not good. Why? What is the reason?

It has been seen that the number of youngsters are smoking very hard, they are chain smokers, this can lead to male infertility and more over it has been seen that males drink very hard. They drink 5 to 6 to 10 pegs a day. They don’t walk. Their lifestyle is not good. You have to walk 45 minutes daily and more over it has been seen that the patients are suffering from severe stress. There are a number of youngsters who work at night and sleep in the day, they work in call centres, definitely those patients are under severe stress. Definitely, those patients will also be suffering from male infertility.

So what we can do to stop male infertility?

Definitely, you to check the quality, quantity and morphology of the sperms. You can go to the pathologist, have your sperm analysis done and it will tell you the exact the quantity quality and morphology of the sperms. Moreover, you can improve your lifestyle. You can walk for 45 minutes early in the morning. You can take the proper good diet. You can increase almonds in your diet. You can in breeze dry fruits including walnuts or flaxseed or you can take broccoli in your diet, or you can take kali urad ki daal that will increase testosterone level normally and moreover you can take non-veg including fish. If you are taking two to three times fish in a week it will also improve your sperm quality. If these things are not improving then definitely you have to visit a doctor.

First of all, you have to do an analysis of your hormones, we have to check FSH, LH, prolactin testosterone in the males which would tell us the exact quantity of the hormones. If the hormones are altered, we can initiate hormone replacement therapy and we can put patients on very good drugs. Nowadays there are the number of drugs that can cure male infertility, it includes Quinze contes, it includes elkanting, lycopene and more drugs which can be administered to the patient and within three to six months of a span of time a patient can be treated fully. No need to go for IVF because you can irradicate male infertility from the base root level if you are going to a very good specialist.

You can visit me on the lybrate platform which is www.lybrate.com/DrRaina. You can consult me online.

Actually, if you are diabetic, you should avoid any processed form of sugar. Be it sugar-free or relish. You can include jaggery in your diet for sweet effect.

My thyroid increased to 13. I however take THYRONORM 175 regularly. Please suggest.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Krutujaji, Thanks for the query. If on treatment then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free fro all the symptoms of hypothyroidism.Since your TSH is 13 mU/L, it shows that hypothyroidism is not controlled at all. This means thyroxine dosage has to increase from the present one. Then after tstarting the increased dose, TSH should be checked after 6 weeks to see if there is necessary change. Thanks

Hi Fluctuating blood sugars damages the nerves, especially the nerves of the legs. This causes a lot of pain in the legs and burning sensation and is called neuritis if it's because of high blood sugar and neuropathy if it's a long term problem. So control of blood sugars is very important. Diet: Avoid carbohydrates like rice, bread, pastas, potatoes especially at night. Eat lot of vegetables, proteins like sprouts, egg whites, paneer. Drink plenty of water. Exercise regularly, 30 min a day for atleast 5 days a week. For his leg pain I can prescribe it in a private chat.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. There are many exercises you can do even in this position. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.

How to prevent Diabetes?

Hello everyone. I am Kanchan Patwardhan, clinical dietician and nutritionist, working in this field for the last 22 years. Today, we are going to speak about diabetes, you know diabetes is a very serious issue and india is becoming a diabetic capital. Every second person is diabetic or suspected to diabetic. So, don’t ignore your problems.

Actually, we can easily monitor our diabetes by diet and lifestyle. See, first you need to understand your body, if your body is going to give you signs and signals, so you can detect your problems very easily. if a diabetic person is having polyurea, polypagia, polydypsi, these kind of symptoms if anyone is having, please go and check your diabetes level and there is a HbA1c which is called Glycocelated Hemoglobin which is actually three months average glucose what you get through HbA1c. So you must do that test to know about your blood sugar level. Why is it necessary to control your blood sugar level? Because if you have high blood sugar, it is very dangerous, it will affect your kidneys, heart, and eyes. So please control your diabetes at a young age and stage.

So, if you are a diabetic or if you are suspected to diabetes, then also prevention is necessary for both of you. So, how can you prevent diabetes? First thing, regular exercises are the key. Second thing, you need to control your diet, you need to have good nutritious balanced diet and you should include good fibre in your diet to control your diabetes. You should include good quality proteins in your diet, not necessary animal proteins, but plant proteins you must consume. You need to include anti-oxidants because when you are having diabetes, your arteries are getting hard and if your arteries are hard then you will have coronary problems so it’s better to include citrus fruits to control diabetes and prevent elasticity of the arteries. Second thing, you must consume antioxidants in your diet. Anti-oxidants can be consumed from fruits such as amla, which is a good source of anti-oxidant. You can also have guava and mostly all fruits are good sources of anti-oxidants. So you should include anti-oxidants, you should eat two-three servings of fruits and vegetables in diabetes.

There are many people that say that you should not include fruits during diabetes. No, it is not correct. Why? Fruits have multiple benefits. It has anti-oxidants, it has vitamins, it has minerals and best is that it has fibers and generally the glycemic index of fruits is very low, so if the glycemic index is low, the sugar level will grow gradually, it will not go randomly. It will go steadily, it will not spike it. So, please consume fruits but if you are going to consume mangoes, then definitely you can have one mango in a day not much but you must include some or other fruits in your diet. Second thing, you should consume pulses in your diet, because pulses are very good sources of proteins, and complex carbohydrates. So, when you are eating pulses, your glycemic index will become low and definitely you will be able to manage your diabetes.

Diabetic person should consume very small meals, means every two-three hours depending on your hunger you must eat. You should drink plenty of water, and last but not the least, avoid fried items, avoid junk, avoid achaar, papad because it will not give you any nutrients and harm your body.

So, if you still want to achieve you target sugar levels and you want to achieve your weight with it, please contact Kanchan’s House of Health and Nutrition for it. Keep watching my videos. Thank you very much.
