Let's go step by step. First tell me since how. Many years he is hypertensive and diabetic? which medicines is he taking for same? last 2 months blood pressure readings and sugar status? hba1c report? serum creatinine is 1.7? it might be due to long standing diabetes. Get done fundus examination by ophthalmologist also to see effect of diabetes on eyes and check urine albumin level too. Revert back with all these and I will advise you what to do to slow progression of this kidney involvement in diabetes and tune up his medications.

Dear user. I can understand. Don't panic. There could be many reasons for your chest pain. But to be sure and for your relief, do consult a doctor. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I think its better to focus on following all the healthy habits and relax a bit. The basic functioning of the body and mind is dependent on how we manage are daily life. So eat healthy , exercise every day and sleep on time for 7-8 hrs. Keep the body hydrated and avoid all bad habits. (The general guidelines : avoid excessive tea, coffee, junk food, processed and preserved food, alcohol, tobacco , any other stimulant etc .) Keep the regular follow up with the doctor at least once a year to check the health and do some investigations.

Your reports are normal and there is no need to take anti anxiety tablets. You are underweight. Tell us about your appetite and lifestyle. At 38 menopausal hormonal changes start with declining of hormones. It is called perimenopausal time, means few years before and after menopause wen periods stop totally. Every woman undergoes changes due to hormones but women do live till 100. Get tested for heart also-bp, ecg, echo and stress test. Get back here with reports, lifestyle and ask your doctor about stopping the medicines. You can take high calcium and high protein diet like milk and curds.
