This therapy has a mechanic energy effect on the tissue, and has been previously used to treat medical issues, such as diabetes, ulcers and heart ailments. When applied to the penis, these waves stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and break down plaque in the existing vessels.  This regenerates the erectile tissues in the penis, and increases the blood flow, producing better erection and reversing the condition of ED.

In today’s times, ED patients prefer shockwave therapy as the right treatment over any of the above-listed treatments, because it is:

Tips to Maintain Urological Health By Best Urologist in Chandigarh

Urologists in Chandigarh think that people don’t give priority to urological health when it comes to their general health and well-being. They are mostly focussed on physical fitness, taking care of their weight, nutrition or at the most, their heart’s health. But they tend to ignore a very crucial aspect of their wellness which is surely the urological health. If it is ignored for long then surely you are inviting serious issues and medical ailments accompanied with lot of pain, and discomfort. Urological diseases tend to affect many organs of body that includes kidney, ureters, bladder and urethra.

Thus, urological health is as important as any other aspect of your body.

Here are the tips given by best urologist in Chandigarh if you want to maintain good Urological health:

1) Drink plenty of water– Depending on the climatic conditions you should consume more than 3 litres of water. As you drink more water the urine will remove the waste or toxins from your body which is certainly great for your urological health as well as overall wellness. If you don’t drink enough water then the urine becomes concentrated which can lead to increased risk of bladder infections and kidney stones. It is also good to stay hydrated with you are in sun, doing exercises. It will prevent dehydration and ultimately your urological health will remain robust.

People who have infections or kidney stones are advised to drink 10 to 12 glasses of water every day. But you need to consult your urologist in Chandigarh if you have any other medical condition in which case it might not be advisable to increase the amount of water.

2) Don’t hold urine for too long– Listen to your bladder and don’t wait too long to urinate as overtime this habit can stretch your bladder. This
is not a good thing as it will lead to incomplete emptying of bladder, infections etc. Now this does not mean that you keep on rushing to the bathroom all the time. Also, when you urinate, make sure that you take enough time to completely empty your bladder.

3) Maintain good hygiene practices– You need to maintain good hygiene practices to prevent the risk of infections. This also includes using clean bathrooms especially in public places. In addition, Genital hygiene is very important and you need to keep your genital area clean by washing it every day.

4) Take care of your diet– You should take range of fruits and vegetable and make healthier food choices. If you have sensitive bladder, it is best to stay away from spicy and acidic food. It’s always important that you take bladder friendly food like bananas, nuts, eggs, beans and whole grains. Clear your diet of refined sugar and carbohydrates. It is best to stick to organic, healthy and wholesome diet for your urological well-being.

5) Stay away from caffeinated drink– If you want that your urological health should thrive then, you need to stay away from caffeinated drinks as they can irritate the bladder. In fact, they are diuretic which means you will urinate more than these drinks make urine. This will eventually leads to dehydration which is the root cause of kidney stones and infections of bladder. So don’t confuse drinking coffee, tea or cola as same as staying hydrated with water or natural fluids like fruit juices.

6) Check your salt intake– When you take lot of salt in your diet, it affects your kidneys. It has been observed that high sodium diet is linked with high blood pressure and if this is not controlled, it can harm kidneys and also increase the risk of developing kidney stones. You need to take care of hidden sodium in the processed foods like canned meats, soups and other packaged stuff like chips, breakfast cereals etc.

7) Maintain healthy weight– Obese or overweight people often experience more urological problems. A heavier abdomen tends to put extra pressure on urinary system. This also contributes to other medical conditions like diabetes, hypertensions and high cholesterol that further hamper your urological health. It is best to maintain a good level of physical activity. Sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise can weaken the muscles of your urinary system. Hence, you should stick to a balanced diet and exercising regularly to maintain healthy weight.

8) Strengthen your pelvic floor muscle– Kegel exercises are great way to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles which will in turn support your urinary system. Men especially are more interested in building biceps and they ignore this very crucial aspect of fitness training. The word of caution here- ‘you should start kegel exercises under the supervision of a physical trainer only.’

9) Stop smoking– Smoking is linked with many urological diseases like bladder and kidney cancer, kidney stones and urinary incontinence. You need to start taking concrete steps towards quitting from today. For that, you can contact urologist in Chandigarh to make a plan that will help you in the cessation of smoking and take you towards healthier life.

All You Need To Know About PCOD: 7 FAQS

1. What is PCOD?

PCOD, or Polycystic Ovary Disorder is a disease that affects around 5-10% of women each year and is primarily caused by hormonal imbalance in their reproductive system. While the cause of this particular disease is not well understood, it may be relegated a host of hereditary and environmental factors.

However, this deserves particular attention as it may cause problems with menstrual periods and make it difficult for the concerned woman to conceive. The principle features of the disease include no ovulation, acne, hirsutism and irregular periods.

2. How is PCOD different from PCOS?

Before delving into what is known of the causes of PCOD and the precautions to avoid it, it is necessary to understand the difference between PCOD and PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). While PCOD includes excess secretion of male hormone; PCOS, on the other hand is more of an endocrinal problem.
Women who suffer from it produce higher than usual levels of androgen, the male hormone which causes major disruption in their monthly cycle. PCOS being a metabolic syndrome is a more serious problem while PCOD, often seen as ‘temporary’ can be corrected through right diet and exercise.

3. What are the main causes of PCOD?

PCOD is mainly by a significant hormonal disbalance, specifically caused by the release of androgen, sex men hormones in a quantity which is more than necessary. While some of it may be necessary in regulating the normal development of eggs during each menstrual cycle, excess of it causes women to stop ovulating, get pimples and grow extra facial and body hair. However, it is to be noted that this disorder runs in families and women whose family members either have a history of PCOS, regular periods or diabetes are more prone to it. Also, body weight and obesity, as can be inferred is the result of PCOD, it may counter intuitively be a cause for it too.

Modern lifestyle has been attributed as one of the primary causes of the disease and hence, women with bad eating habits, irregular exercise and sleep patterns, bad stress management are more prone to it.

4. What are the symptoms or effects of PCOD?

While delayed menstrual cycle, problems in conception and extra facial hair are the more obvious symptoms of the problem, it may also lead to a significant increase in body weight and depression.
Follicles, the sacs that contain the eggs which are released by the ovary during ovulation do not mature; and are not released from the ovaries. Instead, they form cysts in the ovaries and hence the name polycystic ovary disorder. Infertility and problems conceiving are still the biggest shortcomings of both disorders, PCOD and PCOS.

5. What is the role of medication to relieve the women suffering from PCOD?

There is a host of medication prescribed to women who are found to be suffering from PCOD depending on the symptom that they show. Birth Control pills or progesterone pills can contribute by making menstrual cycle more regular. Metformin, a medication that increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin, can improve the symptoms of PCOS and sometimes will cause the menstrual cycles to normalize. For some women, it can also help with weight loss.
There are specific medications for other symptoms like acne, obesity, hirsutism, etc. This being said, making lifestyle modifications still forms the major chunk of relieving an afflicted woman from the disease.

6. What is the role of home-remedies to ease the effects of PCOD?

Women can follow a couple of home-remedies to relieve themselves of the disorder. This includes eating anti-inflammatory foods, low-carb and less of processed foods and dairy products. Consuming certain seeds may during certain phases of the menstrual cycle may also help combat PCOD or PCOS..

7. What is the importance of a healthy lifestyle in preventing PCOD??

Apart from this, there are certain commandments that each one of us should follow, not just to keep PCOD or PCOS at bay, but to protect us from most diseases. Women all age should follow a couple of lifestyle hacks to maintain their reproductive and physical health. These include: Regular Exercise (Brisk walk, jogging or light exercise), having a rich diet with vitamins and minerals, managing a good and disciplined lifestyle and cutting down on alcohol and tobacco consumption to a bare minimum. Last but not the least, ideologically, how you lead your life also determines the health of your body, i.e., managing the stress of work or personal life can go a long way to keep your mind and body functional and in good shape.
