Thanks for writing in.
Since you are suffering from type 2 diabetes, polyuria and nocturia can be symptoms of this as well. This would be particularly true if your diabetes is not well controlled.
As I believe that more information can help a physician help a patient better, I would request you to answer the following questions:
a.     What are the latest reports of your fasting blood sugar, post prandial blood sugar and glycosylated haemoglobin?
b.     I would also like to know the report of your ultrasonography of the kidney-ureter-bladder region and the post void residual urine volume.
It is good that you are on treatment with Alfusin D.
Awaiting your reply

I have reviewed our reports.

As a Urologist I suggest a change from Alfusin D to Alfusin.

I also suggest to start anticholinergic drug such as soilifenacin, darifenacin, tolterodine under the guidance of Urologist. These medications shall improve your symptoms of frequency.

Hope I have addressed your concern, let me know if you have further queries before you accept my answer.

Thankyou Dr.for reply.My biggest concern is reduced frequency in night as well as to improve my sexual desire which i think has been decreased due to prolonged use of Alfuin-D.I am a regular Golf player and regular doing Yog practice under proffessional guidance.I donot think I have any stress related problem and I keep my diabetic and BP always under control.Is soilifenacin,darifenacin or tolterodine shall address this problem? .Kindly let me know company namefor the said composition medicine also producing Alfusin for my trying to buy here.

Thanks again,

You shall be able to get back your sexual desires slowly upon changing to "alfusin" from Alfusin D. You also can get serum testosterone levels (if not done yet) to see whether they are fine.

Anticholinergic medicine shall allow you to control your night frequency. However as today’s research indicates that a move toward individualizing the dosing of prescription agents is warranted and it can happen only after physical consultation. Your doctor would know about these drugs and also help you in changing your current medication. So I encourage you to consult your doctor.

Stress does not contribute to your decreased sexual desire or increased frequency of micturition.

With these measures, your symptoms should improve.

Hope this answers your query. Please accept the answer and close the discussion if you do not have any other query.
