you know uncontrolled blood sugars in diabetics can damage all organs especially kidneys. so keep checking the blood sugar and get the organ testing once a while to control the huge damage

My wife is experiencing what we thought was a UTI. She is prone to UTIs and that is why we thought it was a UTI but these symptoms have worsened. She is experiencing frequent pain when she urinates. Her urine is cloudy and she says it has a distinct smell, calls it a foul smell. Additionally her ankles are now swollen. One foot is tender to the touch. Above the same ankle her leg is a bit swollen. The UTI symptoms began 2 - 3 weeks ago and the foul urine smell accompanied the UTI symptoms. The swollen ankles came about less than a week ago.

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.
