I had a nude body massage yesterday and I was also wearing condom during the massage. The girl sat on top of me as well. However I am not sure if my penis came in contact with her while I was wearing the condom. Since yesterday I am also getting a sensation in my penis which is not usual. I am not sure if this is anxiety. I am in deep remorse and want to be 100% sure. Can you please let know what tests do I need to get done to ensure I have not acquired any diaeaae like HIV or STD. Regards Dhruv.

What are the functions of the kidney?
The kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. As kidneys fail, the waste accumulates in the body. The two most important enzymes, which kidney makes are erythropoietin & renin. Erythropoietin are made by the kidneys if there is less oxygen in the blood. It tells the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. So this means there will be more oxygen carried in the blood.
Renin is made by the kidney if there is low blood pressure, low volume of blood, or too low salts in the blood Renin make the blood vessels smaller and tells the adrenal gland to make aldosterone. It also makes a person feel thirsty and all of this makes the blood pressure go up.

One day I woke up at 7 am another day 9:30 am, the reason is I am not able to sleep at the time I think. It just changes my whole cycle. 1) I am not able to follow a right time cycle (sleep, food) 2) I don't follow healthy food habits 3) I have motion problem also. Either tight or loose motion always. Don't feel a Free stomach! Please advice me with your good health tips. It would be really helpful for many young bachelors who doesn't stay with their family and don't follow healthy habits.

Adhering to a Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits and vegetables and low in animal products may protect from developing type 2 diabetes. The diet emphasizes olive oil, vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals, legumes and fish, and deemphasizes meat and dairy products. It is a healthy eating plan that seems to help in the prevention of heart disease.
In a study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers tracked the diets of 13,380 Spanish university graduates with no history of diabetes. Participants filled out a 136–item food questionnaire, which measured their entire diet (including their intake of fats), their cooking methods and their use of dietary supplements. During an average of 4.4 years of follow–up, the team found that people who adhered to a Mediterranean diet had a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In fact, those who stuck very closely to the diet reduced their risk by 83 percent.
Moreover, the people who tended to stick closest to the diet were those with factors that put them at the highest risk for developing diabetes, such as being older, having a family history of diabetes and being an ex–smoker. These people were expected to have a higher rate of diabetes, but when they adhered to the Mediterranean diet this was not the case.
Type 2 diabetes is typically brought on by poor eating habits, too much weight and too little exercise.
One key factor that might be responsible for the protective effect of the Mediterranean diet is its emphasis on olive oil for cooking, frying, putting on bread and mixing in salad dressings.
Tips to prevent diabetes
Omit refined carbohydrates (white sugar, white rice and white maida)
Use olive oil, vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals, legumes and fish, and reduce meat and dairy products.
