Once your body stops producing insulin it cannot start producing again. You are such a young diabetic adjust your lifestyle according to your problem so that no complications arise in long run. If you are overweight get your weight in normal range. Take a regular follow up with your medical specialist so that he can help you maintain your blood sugar in reasonable limits. Get a diet chart initially. Stick to fonts of diet strictly. Most importantly keep yourself as active as possible. Daily brisk morning walk will do wonders to you.

Presently your diabetes control seems fine but you can improve upon it by: 1. Diet - small but frequent meals, 2. Exercise - atleast 30 mins of brisk walk daily 3. Medicine - regular intake of all your tablets do not get hurt by remarks of your family members. Its only the love and care of the family that keeps us going through the rough times of our lives.

I am a 64 years old male. Had my CABG 2 years back with my saphaneous vein removed from right leg for the procedure (plus the LIMA, it was a 2 vessel CAD). Since last 1 year, my right feet and ankle are swelling up (at times) and more importantly, severe pain is troubling me frequently (but not always) in the inner soft padding of the heel. Uric acid in blood test showed 5. 6. Ortho says the problem is due to excessive uric acid and there is no cure. Cardio says the uric acid is within control. Consult an ortho. What should I do?

This condition can be due to uric acid problem (called gout). Not all patients with symptomatic gout will have a high uric acid level. So serum uric acid is not a good indicator of you symptoms. Although gout has no permanent cure, it is treatable with a long lasting relief. Plantar fasciitis is another condition which can cause heel pain.

I am a slight diabetic and have about 11- of Fasting Blood Sugar count, with 190 OF Post Postprandial Count. I also have Triglyserides of about 300 mg/Dl, Are this responsible for my Long evacuation time of URINARY Discharge? It takes me pretty long time to empty my bladder and I always feel it is not empty, after urinating. A Few years back in Hindhuja I was told I have enlarged prostrate. Could this be another reason?

Enlarged prostate is the main reason of delayed emptying of the bladder and long evacuation time. Better to get a serum PSA test. Enlarged prostate needs treatment as per its size. You can start with TAB. FINAST-T once a day x 3 months and check USG PROSTATE ( KUB) again after 3 months.

It would be best to start insulin for you. But do so only under your diabetologist's advice. Also, undergo a complete evaluation to look for complications because they can influence your planned pregnancy.
