A healthy sex life is very important for mental as well as physical health. However, due to many factors couples may face problems in their sex life, among which the primary concern is a lack of libido. This affects not only men but women as well. Let's look at some of the common factors which can cause low libido. Usual causes of low libido: Mental stress, anxiety or depression Lack of understanding or love in a relationship Lack of sex drive in women after childbirth Erectile Dysfunction in men and reduced blood supply to the vagina for women making sex painful. Diabetes and hypertension in both men and women Hyperthyroid or hypothyroid Obesity and many others There are very good homeo medicines which can cure this problem without side effects and hence if you need any good homeo medicines which doesn't have any side effects write back to me in more detail.

Mr. lybrate-user, Ther is no permanent solution for gout or raised uric acid. If there is severe pain and arthritis then specific drugs may have to be taken. Plus following foods should be avoided: organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods like sardines, scallop, herring, haddock, salmon, trout, mussels and mushrooms. Thanks.

Hello, alphascope is nothing but a type of hysteroscope with high resolution. It is to look into the uterine cavity or the womb and do corrective procedures if need be. Cost of hysteroscopy would depend on the intervention done during procedure. It is a safe procedure, commonly done. All the best. Your friend probably needs to consult a good infertility consultant before deciding. Good luck.

My Hb1Ac is 6% and Average Blood Glucose (ABG ) is 125 mg/dl. Is it diabetic or impaired glucose tolerance.
Mr. K r lybrate-user, it is impaired glucose tolerance. Also considered as pre-diabetes state. It requires you to adapt a modified lifestyle, meaning - maintain normal weight, (ideal body weight 65 kgs), take healthy diet, exercise regularly and refrain from alcohol and smoking. Then you will be able to prevent getting diabetes or may be able to postpone it. Thanks.

The thyroid test results show that she has high tsh levels, it is subclinical hypothyroidism. Presently there is no problem unless she has any symptoms. But she should check her thyroid levels once in 6 months. Also avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Exercise daily to avoid weight gain.

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. (t2 dm). Since insulin is needed for daily for glucose, protein and fat metabolism, if it is lacking or there resistance to its action, then it has to be made available with help of various drugs. If not then there is persistent high blood sugar. High blood sugar affects small & large blood vessels, nerve fibers and almost every vital organ in the body. Untreated or uncontrolled diabetes causes blindness, chronic kidney failure leading to total failure, peripheral neuropathy, affection to feet, non- healing ulcers on foot, lower limb, can lead to loss of limb. In india 1 lac limbs are cut due to diabetic gangrene. Severe burning sensation and tingling and numbness may occur in the lower limbs. Silent heart attacks are common. So we need to treat diabetes for life long.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the various things you have mentioned are some what inter related but everything can not be predicted as you may be thinking. Various things can cause problem with heart. High cholesterol can cause blocks in the coronary artery which can lead to angina or later myocardial infarction (heart attack). High blood pressure puts extra work load on the heart. Diabetes does affect large blood vessels (coronary artery) and also aids dyslipidemia. Tests like echocardiogram and angiography do help in identifying possible causes leading to heart attacks.
