Hello Radha
Dr. Pant post a good answer and it need a careful attention for your baby, what was your diabetic status when your was pregnant to your son, if you was diabetic at that time then go through a regular check-ups of Blood Sugar levels, S. Insulin levels and Thyroid Profile.

Hello , I am a male 47 yrs. old and in 2011 was diagnosed with diabetes. I have lived a relatively normal life with no medical problems. My parents both suffered from hypertension and diabetes. I do not know if this is related but along with this condition, diabetes, I have noticed an increase in height. The military measured me in 1986 at 5 8.75 ft. Now I am 6 1.5 ft. I have also been noticing a sharp pain in my lower back. I believe this height increase started a few weeks ago. I have lived in San Antonio, TX for many years and for the past 2 years I been in South America- Peru if this has any relevance due to the change in climate or foods. Should I be concern ??

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
