It could be due to weakness. If you have no fever you no longer suffer from typhoid. As for as jaundice is concerned get a fresh LFT's done.

How to avoid diabetes.?
Any disease like diabetes is caused only due to an imbalance in your lifestyle. There is no single remedy to avoid any lifestyle disease. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer.

Post lunch of 200 is a little high. Cut down alcohol intake to once a month and stick to one peg. Continue with your exercise. Check your hba1c. If that is high you will need small doses of medication.

I have diabetes from 4 years can it be permanently cured?
No diabetes cannot be cured completely but can be kept under control. Diabetes is a vast subject and normally one diabetic differs from another. The best thing about diabetes is unlike other ailments this if taken care off can be controlled effectively. Diabetes is a problem which requires lot of self-control. Certain foods and lifestyle changes can show long term results on your health. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled. I can help you with carbohydrate counting to correct insulin techniques and monitoring your sugar levels whatever the need be. Diabetics require personalized care when it's about the diet-plans and activities that are needed to be done. A professional advice in this regard is a must in order to manage diabetes effectively. I hold expertise with diabetics as I am a certified diabetes educator apart from being a consultant dietitian. You can consult me privately online for any advice related to diabetes.
