Hello,

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have diabetes and problem of urine flow since last 11 years.

Since you are taking oral anti diabetic medicines and your sugar level are well controlled you need not change the medicines for diabetes.

As regards your urine flow it will be better if you get following investigations done.
1) Ultrasound Scanning of the abdomen to rule out Benign Enlargement of Prostate which is common at this age.
2) Uroflowmetry to study the average urine flow per second.

Please consult qualified Urologist with reports of these tests for clinical and digital rectal examination. He will advise you regarding change in dose of medicine or other modality of treatment.

Hope I have answered your query.
Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.

Thanks with Regards.
Dr.Patil..
