Brief Answer: Take vit D supplement, rest needed after surgery Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX You have mentioned that you are suffering from multiple problems. One of them is orthopedic problem. Surgery for meniscus injury and finger reconstruction has been done. You will have to wait till you regain full strength after surgery. However, entry into the armed forces may be difficult after these reconstructive surgeries as 100% strength may not be achieved. However, you can participate in sports when your orthopedician advices so. Deficiency of vitamin D needs to be treated by taking supplements which you are already taking. You need to take vitamin D levels to check whether normal levels are achieved. Thereafter, you will have to take sufficient amount of vitamin D in diet. Increased amount of insulin is seen in tumors of pancreas called 'insulinoma'. You can give more details about high level of insulin in blood for more information. If you are finding difficult to work in gym, ask your instructor to give you light exercises which will not exhaust your muscles. Thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal
