Hi, my age is 62 years old. I had been diagnosed with type II diabetes and the medicines I have been taking are as follows:-
Metformin 1000 mg 1xod
Metformin 500 mg 1xhs
glimepiride 2 mg 1xbd
clopid 75 mg 1xod
atorvastatin 20 mg 1xhs
The above medicines have been taken regularly for past three months. Now I have taken the blood test two days ago. The result is as follows:-
Serum urea 24 mg/dl
serum creatinine 0.89
serum Uric acid 5.3
Liver Function Test
Total Bilirubin 0.78
Total cholesterol 135
I request a diagnosis of my status of health. I go for swimming once in a while and find no problem in swimming for about 700 metres in about one hour (that is 14 lengths in a lap of 50 metres each) I am muscular and have a athletic body and have no other symptoms. I love drinking alcohol and have about three pegs of 60 ml each every night most days. Should I stop drinking. I can muster enough will if the kind doctor says so. Thanking you in anticipation.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query.
I have gone through all the details given including lab values. All the values seem to be well within normal limits, except SGOT & SGPT. Both are slightly high, signifying some affection of liver functions. It points to one thing clearly that is to reduce alcohol intake. It should be preferably one or two days in a week plus much lesser in quantity. Thanks.
