Lybrate-userji, looking at the blood sugar report, it is clear that she has very high levels, (t2 diabetes). Needs to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet control and daily exercise. The problem must have been there for over a few months, that is why sugar levels are so high. Along with the treatment for diabetes, please get her eyes checked for ruling out any possibility of diabetic retinopathy. Go to any good eye specialist and get retinal examination done within next few days. If you want me advise on specific drug treatment and other details, then please come in a private conversation where I can guide specifically including giving prescriptions for the same. In this communication we are supposed to give only general advise. Also see that she avoids sweets completely, reduces intake of deep fried foods, avoids junk foods, pastries, white bread and other bakery items. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Should walk for 1 hour every day. Thanks for the question.

Stricture of urethral will require a number of tests like ultrasound, urethrogram, cystoscopy. Clinically, not possible to make this diagnosis. Poor flow of urine can only suggest this but you will have to confirm with tests.

Please stop metaglez. Reduce salt intake. Keep blood sugar and bp under control. This action may tend to reduce serum creatinine level. To control sugar, please consult a good diabetologist.

I lived in hostel for 5 years and in those days I had a very bad food habit like junk food sometimes and skipping breakfast. Now I have frequent urination problem since 1 month where I have the feeling like urinating all the time. At first urination was very frequent (15-30 mins) but very less in quantity. Because of that I did my blood taste twice as I was scared of it as diabetes and results came normal. But since 3-4 days the break is every (1--1.30 hr) but quantity is more than before. And I wake up more hungrier than before in the morning. I'm not thirsty all the time though. At night I didn't go to bathroom in the beginning. Now I'm going twice once at 4 am and another at 6 am. Another thing I've noticed is that when I lie down or sit the urge to urinate is more but when I stand or walk the urge decreases. So I'm again tensed about the symptoms. Can the previous blood tests be faulty? Or can I develop diabetes in the gap? What should I do as I'm unable to concentrate on anything and it's very frustrating? I also have a habit of checking about symptoms whenever I feel sick. Am I being paranoid? Can my mind play tricks like this after reading about the symptoms? Please help.

As you are mentioning that you only have blood while passing stool, you need to visit a surgeon for examination, and treatment depends on the findings of the surgeon, you may have a fissure in ano or piles, or some other pathology which can be diagnosed by doing internal examination by proctosigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy only.

Hello lybrate-user as you asked about your problems related to your night emission unknowingly. I would like to suggest you for your problems related to your nights emission, you should not worried about it. It happens with everyone unknowingly but it is harmful because of getting harmonic imbalances. You may follow some regular routines of getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours as well as exercise and yoga and morning walk every day. You may use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroot with ginger and haldi including ghee and nuts every day. Warm milk boiled with ginger and haldi including ghee and nuts every day before going to bed and at breakfast. Avoid oily or junk food and sour products e. G. Pickles etc and nonveg. You may have to go to bed timely with washing your feet.
