Diabetes mellitus if not managed properly through diet chart, regular exercise & drug/insulin can lead to diabetic foot (fungal infection) & damage other organs as well. Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels with glucometer is essential. Diabetic people are more prone to fungal infections. First consult the doctor whom you have been consulting so fat for managing her diabetes. He should be able to guide you regarding tests to be done. Kindly make sure she follows a correct diet & exercise regimen as well.

You could be having some sort of viral neuralgia like herpes zoster see if you have and any skin lesions like some eruptive vesicles sometimes patients get them later but usually they do not cross the mid line of back or on other side. For further assistance you may have to consult in person. Get your sugars and hba1c done to see the control some times simple pain killers and anti allergic drugs can be started initially.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Get your S creatinine level done. As medicine will depend upon your creatinine report.

No medical/scientific study has indicated that masturbation leads to ill-health or weakness in the body. All in all it's a myth that masturbation is bad for health. Diabetes also has nothing to do with it.

I sweat a lot on slight physical activity. My thyroid test is also normal. What could be the problem ? It irritates a lot. Any medicine?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Sweating is meant to cool your body when you physically strain yourself. Sweating - contrary to popular belief - indicates healthy state. It indicates that your sweat glands are responsive and your skin is healthy/hydrated. Medicines are for diseases - sweating is not a disease.

Diabetes is the result of weakness of pancreas to metabolize sugar intake. You have to take medicines life long./ you can add onglyza 5 mg in the morning with food and check your fbs, 2 hr ppbs, hba1c and lipid profile and inform me privately. You will be risking your life by changing or reducing tablets. Eventually you may need insulin. Ask privately for personal advice.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.
