Question: I recently had a serum protein electrophoresis repeated with the same results as two years ago. It talks about a suspicious restriction, what could cause this restriction? I have been diagnosed with Lyme, but worry about Multiple Myloema or amyladosis.

Thanks for writing to us.
There are levels of immunoglobulin like IgM and IgG which are important for diagnosis of multiple myeloma.
Please let me know the detailed reports . Then it will be possible to comment on any particular disease. Just on basis of restriction, it is quite difficult to comment upon.
You can upload your reports.
Looking forward for your response.
Thanking you.

Dear Doctor,
I am a male, 30 years old and married 2 years ago. Recently doctor diagnosed azoospermia. I used to take corticosteroids (prednisone) for skin infection since 2 years. Even about 45 days back also I took that medicine. Medicine is one of the reasons for azoospermia? There was no suspect in VDRL, HbsAg, HIV, TSH, TB antibodies IgM, complete blood profile tests and are normal. No one my family having azoospermic condition. One doctor is advicing to go for TESA. Is TESA necessary without fidning the right cause of Azoospermia. Is Azoospermia curable by medicine? Do you prescribe any doctor in Hyderabad, India?
Thank you for understanding my problem
