After that i have consult a diabetologist he had given other madicine even with that madicine also same symptoms i have observed after one week i got suger tisting done and observed fasting -123 and post lunch -169.Doctor told me to stop the madicine and get the testing done after 15 days. Testing done after 15 days after stoping all madicine and observed fasting -110 and post lunch 148 .Again doctor told me to get the testing done after 2 months. Testing done after 2 months observed HBA1c -5.5 and fasting 100 and post lunch 125. After seeing the test reports i did not consult the doctor till now and after that i have got the sugar testing done several time and observed fasting was 100-110 and post lunch was 140-150.

The sugar found in milk and other dairy products such as yoghurt and cheese is called lactose. An enzyme in the small intestine called “lactase” breaks lactose into galactose and glucose. When the lactose is not digested properly by the small intestine, it passes unbroken into the colon. The bacteria in the colon break the lactose down into hydrogen and carbon dioxide. People who fail to digest lactose in their small intestines are diagnosed with lactose intolerance.
Usually lactose intolerance only affects adults, but sometimes children do suffer from it. For children, their symptoms can be mild or very severe (for example, cramps, diarrhoea in children, etc.)
Normally, parents can confuse milk allergy with lactose intolerance. They do share the same symptoms, but they are completely different medical conditions. Milk allergy is caused by the immune system while lactose intolerance is a problem with the digestive system.
The causes of lactose intolerance include:
1. Absence or deficiency of the lactase enzyme
2. Infections in the gastrointestinal tract that damage the lining inside the small intestine
3. Gluten intolerance (It affects lactase production)
4. Genetics (Lactose intolerance can run in the family)
When the lactose is broken down in the colon, certain gases are produced. These gases can cause symptoms such as:
1. Abdominal inflammation and pain
2. Excessive burping
3. Loud sounds in the bowel
4. Excessive diarrhoea and gas
5. Explosive and watery bowel movements
6. A feeling of urgency when it comes to bowel movements (In children, they might feel like they need to get to the bathroom as soon as possible or they might embarrass themselves)
How best to treat it?
Living with lactose intolerance usually involves dietary modifications and taking supplements such as over-the-counter lactase to aid in digestion. For instance, you can replace milk with soy milk, or take lactase before ingesting any dairy product. Or alternatively, you can consume lactose-reduced or lactose-free milk and dairy products.
Calcium deficiency is a serious side effect of lactose intolerance. So incorporate calcium-rich foods such as broccoli, kale, tofu, almond, dried fruits, soybeans, turnip greens, collard greens and fortified orange juice in your diet.

*Though tropical countries like India has enough sunlight, the vitamin D deficiency has become widespread due to changed lifestyle and job profiles
*Vitamin D deficiency is rapidly gaining epidemic proportions yet it remains the most under-diagnosed and under-treated nutritional deficiency in the world
*It is easily preventable by getting more exposure in the sun, eating more dairy products and vitamin D-rich foods and taking supplements as prescribed by the doctor
