    Hello!

    Since this is the urology forum, I'd like to ask a few questions here.

    Could you please refer me to some sources/research regarding the treatment of high-grade varicocele through alternative/non-surgical methods such as weight loss, physiotherapy, Chinese Medicine, etc.

    I am particularly interested in data related to the state of varicocele after weight loss.

    Thank you!

    I'm reasonably sure there is no research showing a benefit to weight loss with regard to varicocele. This is not an obesity related phenomenon. I'm even more sure there is no evidence for varicocele treatment via Chinese medicine.

    Why not just search pubmed?
