Abstract

Sexual dysfunctions affect both men and women and include Delayed Ejaculation, Male Erectile Disorder, Female Orgasmic Disorder, Female Sexual Interest-Arousal Disorder, Genito-Pelvic Pain Disorder/Penetration Disorder, Male Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, Premature Ejaculation and Substance-Medication Induced Sexual Dysfunction. Untreated sexual dysfunctions may cause significant distress and interpersonal difficulty in some individuals or couples. The diagnosis of sexual dysfunctions includes a thorough medical history and evaluation, followed by the appropriate medical, psychological and psychosocial treatment interventions.

Abstract

Herbal supplements are in widespread use in all medical specialties. Evidence that supports their efficacy and safety is often lacking and the GP, physician or specialist nurse are left with very little objective advice to give patients. In this article, an update is given on a range of supplements used in musculoskeletal medicine with the specific purpose of informing health care providers and allowing them to offer the best advice on their use.

Abstract

General Practitioners are commonly faced with abnormalities of the full blood count. This can vary from thrombocytopenia, to lymphocytosis to eosinophilia, amongst others. We aim to provide practical guidance for managing these problems in primary care, with reference to various professional guidelines where appropriate. The approach to other disorders such as lymphadenopathy, paraproteins, haemochromatosis, as well as antibodies in pregnancy, is also discussed. The approach to anaemia has been covered in a separate linked article.
