Thanks for the query.

Going by your reports, you have diabetes. Your fasting glucose seems to be quite high. I am assuming your post meal glucose levels should also be high.

The symptoms you have listed are secondary to diabetes. They should settle once the blood sugars are under control. The infection on penis seems to be fungal, rather than bacterial. Norflox won't work for long term. You need good glucose control and antifungal medicines, under your physician's guidance for long term management.

Apart from mild elevation in liver enzymes and raised sugars, rest of the reports are normal. You must cut down upon oily food consumption and avoid alcohol. Daily walking, jogging or swimming should be a routine hobby rather than a compulsion.

You clearly need medicines. Your symptoms will settle under the appropriate guidance of good physician. Type 2 diabetes age is decreasing, and it’s not uncommon these days to see a diabetic in his thirties.

Diabetes should not hamper your married life if the sugars are under control. Wish you all the best.

You need to get yourself evaluated by your physician for diabetes and appropriate prescription of medicines.

Hope I have answered your queries. I will be available for the follow-up queries, if any.
