Low Testosterone: Surprising Signs You Didn’t Know About Lakshmi Devan
06 Apr 2017Array min read

Testosterone is a vital hormone for men, and sometimes, low levels go unnoticed. Here are surprising signs that will help you spot a low T.

Testosterone is a hormone that is produced in a man’s testicles. It stimulates his sperm production; controls his libido; and during puberty, it determines the growth of his penis, the deepening of his voice, and builds muscles and bones. Just as in women, where oestrogen levels go down with age, in men too, testosterone levels begin to decline with age, starting at 30.   A decrease in sexual desires may accompany this decline, but men often mistakenly assume that a total lack of sexual appetite or erectile dysfunction is only because of age-related testosterone decline. The truth is, these symptoms could be due to several other reasons, such as thyroid issues, diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, depression etc. So, while the correct diagnosis is very important, what’s more important is to know a low T when you see one. Before we begin, know that a normal range of testosterone is between 300-800 nanogram per deciliter, though the upper limit varies.

  • Difficulty in achieving an erection – Testosterone does not control erections entirely, but it stimulates receptors in the brain to release nitric oxide, which is a precursor to triggering an erection. So a low testosterone could be the reason behind erection troubles, though it’s notable here that there could be several other reasons behind it, and it’s best to get yourself checked out.
  • Semen volumeTestosterone plays a major role in semen production in the simple way that the more testosterone a man has, the higher the volume of semen. So if your ejaculations are getting drier, low T could be a reason why.
  • Hair loss – Men with low testosterone have reported balding, and loss of facial and body hair.
  • Loss of muscle – Recall reading how testosterone controls muscle development and maintenance? This is exactly why, as age progresses, and in case of a low testosterone level, men will experience a decrease in strength and muscle mass.
  • Decrease in bone mass – Like women lose bone mass during menopause due to low oestrogen, men also lose bone mass and develop osteoporosis – especially men who’ve had low levels of the hormone for years.
  • Mood lows – Again, as with a woman during menopause, a man with declining testosterone experiences drastic mood changes, depression, irritability, lack of focus etc.

Too Much: The What, Why, And How Of Prolonged Erections Lakshmi Devan
07 Apr 2017Array min read

Too much is not good, and if you consider the case of priapism, also kind of painful. To put it straight, you do NOT want an 8-hour long erection.

Flabby arms can look ungainly and upset your entire look, even if you are fit otherwise. However, if you have no time or inclination to go to a gym just to tone those arms, here are some moves that can work wonders at home. Just learn to do them right, and be consistent! Priapism is the medical name for when you’ve had an erection for more than 4 hours, and it won’t go down. Sometimes, the blood that fills the penis during an erection is unable to get out – causing intense pain. Take it seriously, because an erection that lasts over 4 hours is an emergency room situation. If not treated in time, it may completely damage the penis, and cause erectile dysfunction and scarring.

There are 2 kinds of priapism:

  • Low flow (ischemic) priapism
  • High flow (non-ischemic) priapism

High flow (non-ischemic) priapism is usually not painful, and happens because of excessive blood flow to the penis during arousal. The low flow type of priapism, where blood gets trapped within the penis, is more dangerous and pain-causing. Could it happen to you? Only you'll know, but here's what could cause it:

  • Diseases like sickle cell anaemia, leukaemia, carbon monoxide poisoning, and scorpion stings.
  • Side effects from drugs like antidepressants, blood thinners, and especially drugs taken for erectile dysfunction.
  • Alcohol abuse, and the use of illegal drugs like cocaine.
  • Lastly, injuries and trauma to the genitals, damaging nerves and arteries.   So what do you do when priapism happens? Have you watched the show called Sex sent me to the E.R.? Never mind, you run to the E.R...that's what you do.   Now, how do you know when and if it's really happening (other than the 4-hour erection of course)?

Well, a few additional symptoms are:  

  • Pain or tenderness in the penis.
  • A rigid shaft, but a soft glans.  

The doctor will study your medical history and run the following tests:  

A colour Doppler test, to see how blood is flowing through your penis. Another test where a dye will be injected to study it flowing through your arteries, called an arteriogram.   And lastly, once all the results are out, he is going to recommend from the following treatments – some simple, some not so much:  

  • Application of ice packs to soothe the swelling for high-flow cases.
  • Draining of blood from the area, using a needle to ease the swelling, pressure, and pain.
  • The low-flow cases get adrenergic alpha-agonists prescribed, that narrow down blood vessels, and slow down blood flow to the area. Alpha-agonists are available as both pills and injections.
  • Blocking of the artery that is the root of all this pain, in a procedure called arterial embolisation.
  • Tying up the broken artery that is the causing the issue, called surgical ligation.
  • Lastly, a surgical passageway achieved to drain out blood from the area, which sadly puts the person at high risk of erectile dysfunction later. Takeaway from this? Nothing but that the sooner you get yourself to the doctor, the better your chances of a complete recovery. So, stop with the procrastination and start taking your wellness seriously.

The Truth About Organic Products: Should You Be Buying Them? Team healthhunt
11 Apr 2017Array min read

Everyone touts the word ‘organic’ as some kind of miracle. The question is, is it worth spending that extra buck?

While organic foods have generated a buzz over the last few years, inadequate information about the process, poor labelling methods, and an informal Indian market make the whole organic crusade suspect. Given that organic produce is much more expensive, is it worth buying? Let’s find out.

What is organic?

Till recently, the term organic was wrapped in cotton, treated gently, and with the right amount of snobbery. Yet, given that Indians are today frequently travelling overseas, the lure of organic foods is far greater. The Department for Agriculture and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) states that “Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives. Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic legislation. Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production. Instead, the agricultural systems rely on crop rotation, animal and plant manures, some hand weeding and biological pest control.”

The labelling dilemma 

While a bunch of fancy supermarkets and smaller stores in India are now stocking produce that is labeled ‘organic’, and you have a range of organic milk and meat suppliers, many of these products are questionable, simply because in our country there is no one authority that labels and certifies these products as pesticide-free. A lot of it is based on trust, especially when you purchase from farmer markets that are more niche and local. Although, experts point out that all foods that have a PLU or code (5 digits long, and begins with 9) on them are supposed to be organic, but very few people know what to check for, and very few small farmers have the money to ensure their products are certified, unlike the rigorous standards some other countries have.

Is it really healthier?

If food has been grown in a pesticide-free environment, or you are getting milk from cows that are not being injected with antibiotics and hormones, chances are that over a period of time this food will prove healthier and provide better nourishment. Food additives and fortifying agents are absent from organic foods, automatically making them a healthier option. On the flip side, the Stanford University published a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine, which clearly showed that there is no foolproof way of determining if organic food is nutritionally superior to non-organic produce. Some of the other advantages of organic produce are that it does not look uniform, takes less time to cook, and tastes better. It is also much better for the environment, and is being seen as the way forward.

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
