Hi Mr XXXXXXX
Welcome to Health Care Magic
_________________________________________________________
“FEEL SICK EATING AND ACUTE ACIDITY” –
     This could be from Alcoholic Gastritis / Oesophagitis / Hiatus Hernia and so on.

     The first step is to have an ECG done.
     Next thing will be to see a Gastro-enterologist and have upper GI endoscopy

     The best treatment will be to stop alcohol – STOP IMMEDIATELY, COMPLETELY AND PERMANENTLY.
     In the mean time, Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) like omeperazole / Pro-kinetic agents like domperidone, may help.
_________________________________________________________
DIABETES –
Sugar level of 180 needs further improvement. What is your HbA1C?
_________________________________________________________
HYPERTENSION
Is it controlled well? / Lower the pressure, better for the diabetic – protects the kidneys in the long term You ought to be taking ACE inhibitor or ARB...
_________________________________________________________
OBESITY –
     Your BMI is more than 34 / 20 to 24 is the normal range for your height... /
Weight of 59 to 62 Kg will be the normal range, for this height...
_________________________________________________________
ALCOHOL –
     It is bad for the liver – fatty liver is a warning bell.
           – Is your Liver Function Test (LFT) normal?
It is bad for sugar – has high calories
It is bad for Lipids – Is your Triglyceride normal?
_________________________________________________________
FATTY LIVER
     Prime cause is alcohol.
     Diabetes and dyslipidemia could contribute.
_________________________________________________________
To sum up,
You should be seeing your Internist (MD) for favour of further assessment and assistance.
Some things are avoidable / ALL are treatable
_________________________________________________________

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
