I just noticed a lot of ants in one of my used panties. I m a little bit concerned because my grandpa has diabetes, and I tend to eat a lot of sweet food. The weird thing is that out of all the panties in my laundry basket, they only gathered on one of them. It was the one I used a week ago. I only noticed a few ants coming in that direction yesterday, but I ignored them. I saw a lot more today, so it kind of scared me. Should I be concerned?

I have been diagnosed with diabetes, I am not taking meds, but trying to control it with diet. I don t eat any white things, like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, sugar.. No processed foods. I eat nuts and granolas, and use honey for a sweetener .. No coffee or tea, and don t smoke.I have taken to walking about 3 times a day, and test my blood glucose daily. Take some vitamins, including a fruit smoothie with super foods powder everyday. I am 58, female and weight about 175.I have neuropathy in my feet, my skin is very dry, I have lost lots of hair and have fungus and blue toenails...I can t seem to lose weight and have a big mid section. Almost like I am bloated. About 8 years ago I had a really good check-up and was told I had 2 small spots on my liver. Could that be something causing me to not lose weight or have any bearing on my problems?

Hello Doc I normally find. Sugars. Ants clustering within my toilet bowl after some time I urinated; please what could be the sign of it?? I eat well balanced diet regularly; more of semolina with my native soup which comprises of chicken, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper and some other spices. I eat less of white bread, white rice and more of fruits. I drink more of red wine and cranberry juice, and water. I exercise by jogging and walking on. Saturdays mostly 4 an hour. I used to to smoke often but stopped recently but do take a stick or 2 randomly like 1 in a week or in 2 weeks. I used to overweight as well but been able to loosed 9-10kg with the help of green tea plus exercise and dieting. I used to regularly take a cup of black tea daily without sugar or milk but stopped as I discovered that its been over stressing my bladder and causing me constant urinarination and pains above my penis area directly below my navel. So with all these I don t know what could be the reason of seeing ants around my toilet bowl; tho this occurs when I fail to flush it and come back to reuse it. Patiently waiting for your advise. Thank You Doctor Warm Regards, Felix
