Dr. David Samadi’ take on Men Sexual Health and Women Menopause

David B. Samadi was born and raised in Iran. After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, he and his younger brother left for Belgium and London where they continued their studies before later moving to the US where he joined Roslyn in New York to complete his high school studies. Under full scholarship, Samadi joined Stony Brook University and later earned his degree in Biochemistry and then joined Stony Brook School of Medicine for his M.D. He has numerous post-graduate training among them urology, oncology, and proctology.

Samadi has practiced in many institutions among them; Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and Lenox Hill Hospital. He is the best prostate cancer surgeon in the US and is actively involved in training urologists and prostate surgeons both locally and internationally. He is also very affluent with his robotic prostate treatment.

Doctor Samadi argues that being sexually active is different from being sexually active and healthy. He urges men to take care of themselves to avoid complications in their latter day’s sex life. These may include erectile dysfunction and in some cases depression. These problems are avoidable by taking a few caution measures which are doable. Some of them involve observing a balanced diet, exercising frequently, avoiding illegal drugs, annual checkups, kegel exercises, cutting on alcohol, stress management and avoiding smoking.

Frequent exercises reduce fat, increase energy, confidence, and libido. Kegel exercises strengthen the muscle that controls the flow of urine through the urethra which is an added advantage because men can learn how to delay ejaculations. According to Dr. Samadi men should also avoid food rich in fat as this reduces their performance in bed and should, therefore, consider eating a diet rich in nutrients and a lot of fruits for they are easy to absorb. Drugs and stress act as sex killers. Samadi, therefore, prohibits them because they are not suitable for a man’s sex life.

With his vast knowledge, Dr. Samadi goes further and advises women on menopause. He answers some of the many questions about this issue. Some of them involve; at what age should it start, do all women experience same symptoms. The difference between premenopausal and menopause, nonhormonal options for managing menopause, whether hormone replacement is safe for managing the symptoms, does it increase the risk of heart disease and do all women experience hot flashes the same way. Dr. Samadi advises that these effects differ from one individual to the other and that they should visit a professional for further advice.

Patients should wear a loose, 2-piece outfit to the appointment. Regular medications should be taken as normal, and a light meal is eaten before a 4 hour fast. Moderate amounts of liquid can be consumed while fasting.

Colorectal Cancer Screening
The FIT test can be done at home, by collecting a stool sample in privacy. Those with hemorrhoidal conditions, blood containing urine, or menstruation within 3 days should delay the FIT stool sample for boosted accuracy.

Osteoporosis Screening/Bone Density Test
Avoid pantyhose or long socks when preparing for this screening. Removing the shoe will be required.

Testosterone Deficiency Screening
Prepare for blood to be drawn between the 7 am -10 am

Health Risk Assessment – 6 for Life
Avoiding food for 12 hours boosts accuracy, and short-sleeved shirts are preferable for blood pressure testing.

Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
Short-sleeved shirts and the avoidance of pantyhose is preferred.

Atrial Fibrillation Screening
Avoid wearing jewelry, oils are lotions or pantyhose. Wear loose clothing and make sure all mobile devices are put on silent.

Ankle-brachial index (peripheral arterial disease)
Wear loose clothing, preferably short-sleeved and avoid wearing pantyhose.

Carotid Artery Disease Screening
Wear an open-collared shirt and avoid wearing around the neck area.

Fasting Only
High Cholesterol Screening/Lipid Panel Test
Prepare to fast for 8 hours before this screening.

Glucose (type 2 diabetes)
Fasting for 12 hours.

If the patient is diabetic their doctor should be consulted about the allowance of a diabetic meal instead of normal fasting.

Prostate Cancer Screening; Thyroid Disease Screening; are Lifeline screenings that do not require fasting before the appointment.

Oncotarget Makes Health Information More Accessible

The study of health information can be complicated as researchers seek to make a name for themselves in the medical industry. Whether it’s being at the head of ground breaking research that could put a diagnosed medical condition on its head or find an alternative medicine, the competition doesn’t breed friendships. Thanks to Oncotarget, a weekly peer reviewed open access medical journal, access to vital information is much easier. The journal was originally established in 2010 and has continued to be published by Impact Journals.Oncotarget focuses on all aspects of oncology and has the health to increase the impact of the author’s research. The medical journal has seen a rise in popularity in recent years and due to being open access, has made it easily accessible to everyone in the medical industry. The medical journal has transformed into a platform where people can read insightful, constructive, and punctual peer reviewed articles.

The open access nature of Oncotarget is also a necessity in today’s age where competition is fierce and many researchers in the field of oncology may not realize the goal is to work together. Maximizing research through insightful review helps lead to exceptional discovery being made later in the field. Researchers no longer have to compete with each other, but instead, can combine their expertise to further the study of oncology.The term ‘oncotarget’ itself even has an important meaning which encompasses all the microbes, molecules, pathways, cancer cells, cellular functions, neurons, cellular functions common to cancer, and other aspects concerning oncology.

The focus of the peer reviewed journal is a life ultimately without the disease.Scientific discovery is being made all the time around the world and being able to access this kind of research is vital to the community. Oncotarget provides a necessary service for people to access this information freely and easily without having to leap through hoops. The open access nature of the journal has helped to link different fields together in the area of biomedical science to encourage researchers to work together. This way researchers are able to work towards a common goal and further the study and research of oncology.
