My husband suffered FSH hormone level is high like 26 what should be treatment and als it is major problem of infertility.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology

It is also essential for men to have normal levels of the FSH hormone. An imbalance of this hormone in men can contribute to infertility. For men, FSH controls sperm production which is of course essential to fertility. Typically, a man’s follicle-stimulating hormone levels should be between 5 and 15 IU/L. High levels of FSH in a male could indicate that the testicles are not functioning properly, or may have been damaged by some condition. They can also indicate the presence of Klinefelter syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes the presence of too many X chromosomes in the male. So get semen analysis done, and consult with some good infertility specialist.

Go for walk daily . 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,

Things You Should Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases!

Things You Should Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases!

It is always better to ensure caution and stay protected against possible infections, which are caused by intimate contact amongst partners. Sexually Transmitted Diseases or STDs are common occurrences for many people all over the world. These many range in intensity and type, and may also happen due to various causes. These are also known as venereal diseases. The most common way for this kind of infection or disease to spread, is through unprotected sex with an infected partner. The problem is that many of these diseases do not cause any obvious symptoms which make them even more difficult to detect and spot. So some of the prevailing STD's:

  • Bacterial Infections: These are by far the most common type of STDs which can spread quickly and easily when the bacteria are passed on through sexual activity. The symptoms may include pain and even bleeding in the vaginal area. The different types of bacterial infections include Chancroid, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Granuloma Inguinale and others. This bacteria usually manifests due to poor hygiene of the genitals. In case of many of these conditions, if proper diagnosis and treatment does not take place on time, the result may be infertility too.
  • Fungal Infections: Fungal infections like Candidiasis usually occur due to the production of excess yeast. This yeast infection can spread and become painful and is usually characterised by a thick white discharge.
  • Viral Infections: There are a number of viral infections like Viral Hepatitis, HIV, Herpes Simplex and many more, that can transmitted through a virus which can also be found in food, blood, yeast and in rare cases, breast milk. Pain and sores in the genital area can be some of the most common symptoms of these kinds of infections, which can prove to be fatal if not treated on time.
  • Parasites: Crab Louse and Scabies are some common parasites that can also thrive on sexual contact with an infected partner, which leads to transmission and spread of the infection. The instant symptoms include skin problems and other changes that may be painful.
  • Anal Conditions: Sometimes, many STDs can be caused due to anal sex which may be in insertive or receptive mode. These include HIV, Hepatitis, Gonorrhoea, Herpes and more. The initial symptoms may include pain and sores.

There are a number of unscreened bacteria and viruses that may cause such conditions and one must be careful to practice only protected sex with a known partner. Also, care must be taken to indulge in sexual intercourse with only partner at a time so as to prevent the spread of any infection or STD. 

The treatment of any kinds of these STD infections should be treated at the right time before it makes condition worse and the proper medication can be prescribed by the sexologist or even surgery and other such procedures for particularly serious cases. so any case of unprotected sex should be monitored for any STD symptoms and get treated by a sexologist. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 40 years old and I got a blood test report with 425 sugar and 2.9 serrum belirubin 5 months ago. But now a days sugar is 110 fasting and 130 pp but bilrubin is still 1.3 to 2.5. And I am not taking any drugs for diabitis from 3 months. In ultra sound and fibroscan a fatty liver is found. But according to ilbs there are no need to take any drug for fatty liver and bilrubin.

I think you had" hepatitis a" 5 months back. You should start metformin 500 mg 1-0-1 after food. This will take care of your fatty liver. Quit alcohol if you take it.

Pune.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Milk drinking is not prohibited in patients with hypothyroidism. You can take as much as you desire. Only thing is high fat cheese is not good. Even milk with low fat or without creme should be taken. Thanks.

Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. You should go for brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, bay leaves, in food iteams. Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Never miss out breakfast. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Chapatis of bran flour (unrefined) is given to diabetes patients and to increase value add gram and soyabean flour to it.

Please get an Echo, hemoglobin, TSH levels and Chest x-ray AP view if not done or your MIL. Echo will tell us the condition of her heart and about any valve leakage, hemoglobin to rule out anaemia which can be a cause of this breathlessness and chest x-ray to rule out any lung issues. If these tests are normal then we will have rules out major causes leading to this problem. The anti-anxiety medicine could be a cause of her drowsiness, weakness etc so please stop it unless she has some underlying psychiatric condition for which she is receiving this treatment. A mild anti-anxiety can be given to her to control her anxiety. Also you can talk to her treating cardiologist to do a check angio once just to re-assure her that there is no problem in her stents.
