Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that you can do fitness gym that is not an issue with diabetes but high protein shakes will not be recommended as they have a tendency to cause renal damage and since you are already diabetic so that can be problematic .

Plus you should not do vigorous exercises as that can also lead to hypoglycemia . Rest your marital issues are unrelated with your diabetes problem.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
