Brief Answer:
Controlling diabetes is crucial...

Detailed Answer:
Hi there my dear,

I have gone through your medical history and there are 3 things to be pointed out:

1. You are reporting to have urinary and vaginal problems, most probably infection. It is common for diabetics to suffer of uro-genital infection. You need to start appropriate antibiotic treatment orally and locally (vaginal ovules).

Controlling blood sugar levels would also help treat such problems easily.

2. You are also reporting to be suffering of acid reflux. You should increase the dose of nexium, follow appropriate diet (avoid foods/drinks that might cause heartburn). Please be patient as the treatment is long-term and need time to get improvement.

I would also suggest to take domperidone for nausea.

3. With regards to vertigo, I'd suggest to monitor your:
- blood pressure
- blood sugar levels

record the results and pass them to your doctor. If blood pressure/sugar are ok, then, should consult with ENT to exclude inner ear problems and treat them accordingly.

Hope it was of help! Let me know if anything unclear!
