Diabetes can occur because of various reasons, improper eating and sedentary life cause diabetes. heredity is also possible  but you cannot modify that factor so do not think about it. Chocolates are possibly cause diabetes.

A relative is type one diabetic. He had a mild heart attack 3 weeks ago followed by a massive heart attack 2 days later. The attack has left him with only 20% heart function. His legs are extremely swolen with fluid and because of this, cannot have surgery. He cannot lay down as fluid gets into his lungs. He has been re-admitted to hospital but doctors have not told us very much. He is 58 years old, not overweight and normally very active. He does not smoke and drinks only socially. Help?

Hi sir,
my elder brother was suffering with frequent coughing since last 3 months. In chest x ray, Koch's lesion left upper mid zones was found. after that we consulted with the chest physician, he adviced forcreatinine, fasting blood sugar test, sputum test. His blood sugar was 361 mg/dl that is really surprising for us. because in our family nobody is diabetic. Even we never identified he may be diabetic. in case of sputum test, A.F.B. (++)was detected. now its clear to us that he having infection of tuberculosis. but still we are confused about the diabetes. due to diabetes he is having tuberculosis or after infection he became diabetic. his weight is approx. 64
kg. please let me know what is the right treatment for better cure of both diabetes and tuberculosis.
