User:thank you
Doctor:You were discussing about your voice problem.
User:so i had an endoscopy done
User:and will start my speech therapy from today
User:also my windpipe seems to be narrow
Doctor:Feminity of voice is associated with either puberty and endocrine related issues or due to problem in the larynx.
User:so if sppech therapy doesn't work ,there need to be surgical intervention
User:i wanted to know if that is the common approach ?
Doctor:If endocrine and puberty related issues are not found
Doctor:and if the problem is in the larynx, it cannot be corrected with medications.
User:also wanted to know the repute ofxxxxxxxxx
Doctor:Speech therapy with or without surgical treatment is the right approach.
User:also , minimal growth of facial hair is also an issue, please tell me whom shud i consult ?
Doctor:Appearance of facial hair is not always abnormal.
Doctor:It is some times associated with endocrine/hormonal problems and genetic factors.
Doctor:As you mentioned you consulted Drxxxxxxx who has a well known endocrinologist and he has ruled out hormonal problems
User:but my hormonal tests were done as per Drxxxxxxxxxsuggestion .it was found to be normal
Doctor:then perhaps the reduced facial hair is related to genetic or unknown factor.
Doctor:Unknown factor in the sense which are hard to be proved.
User:shud i try ayurveda?
Doctor:Autoimmune condition of the skin are one such unknown factor.
Doctor:Harigovindan, you seem to have multiple queries. Let me address it one by one.
User:sure sir
Doctor:1. Feminity of voice and reduced facial hair growth can be related with endocrine problems. However that seems to be comprehensively ruled by endocrinologist.
Doctor:2. In the absence of endocrine problems, they could be independent of each other. Perhaps genetic factors could be related.
Doctor:The genetic factors cannot be proved with the available routine laboratory investigations.
Doctor:3. In addition sometimes autoimmune conditions related to facial skin can be the reason for reduced facial hair.
Doctor:4. Since they are not related to a common factor, we can only treat it one by one.
Doctor:5. Speech therapy and if needed surgical remedies should help in changing your voice.
Doctor:6. You can also consult a dermatologist to get the facial skin checked.
Doctor:Reduced facial hair can be treated if feasible by a dermatologist.
User:sure,can you please suggest a doctor,dermatologist ?
Doctor:7. It would be better if you can consult a good multidisciplinary hospital and get things evaluated under one roof.
Doctor:Alternatively individual specialist can be consulted.
Doctor:Since you have already consulted Dr. xxxxxxxfor endocrine problems and xxxxx for ENT problem, you can consider one among the 2 options for dermatologist.
Doctor:a) Visit a dermatologist
User:okay, thnx
Doctor:b) Dr. XXXXXXX
