I am a little paranoid. Ants gather around my urine...Am i diabetic?

I was a little paranoid about being diabetic since my grandmother died from it so i did a little test. I urinated on a container and then left it outside for a bit and when i came back the container was full of ants even after i rinced the container (without soap) the ants kept coming back to it. Am i diabetic?

If the ants are gathering around urine, it should have contain sugars. I am not a Diabetic but even around my urine the ants gather and discuss about many issues. Do not be stupid, I heard urine has some amount of sugar and other ketones which also makes the ants gather around.

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?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
