Question Asked:

"Good day Doctor, in November last year I ran a full blood & urine test and one significant result was that my immunity was low. I was advised to take selenium immunase for a period of 3months to boost it. I feel weaker than I used to now and more vulnerable. Even in my sex life I have no drive and weak erection. Please I need adequate advice. Thank you."

    My complaints then were general body weakness, headache and weak erection too but not as it is now. I remember complaining not having a hard-on when I wake in the morning. pertaining the white cells, I attached a document of the test result showing slight lymphocytosis on WCB. Now I am not vomiting nor having headache, just general weakness and low sex drive. Thank you for your concern.

    Yes I take alcohol, occasionally and have smoked cigarettes a couple of times during this festive period only. Not more than 5 sticks in total I'm sure. No I don't abuse substances. Please doc what do I do? I'm not happy.

    that's where your problem lies.stop the alcohol and cigarettes, exercise more.eat regular balanced diet.watch as you improve.Don't resort to drugs to prove your performance as they have side effects too as you may end up dependent on it before you even get erection at all.

    Okay Doc. thank you for the advice. I'll try to keep up with the exercise and regular balanced diet and quite the cigarettes. But as for the drugs I'm taking presently, the Selenium Immunase, should I continue or not? what measures do I take now?
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    For the selenium,Taking doses above 400 mcg can increase the risk of developing selenium toxicity. Taking lower doses long-term can increase the risk of developing diabetes. High doses of selenium can cause significant side effects including nausea, vomiting, nail changes, loss of energy(you see where your weakness comes from), and irritability. I will advice you stop taking the drug.once you eat enough fruits,your immunity is bound to improve unless you have immunosuppressive diseases such as HIV,you abuse steroids,diabetes etc.
