Check health risk

Patient

Q: I am suffering pressure since 20 years & diabetic since 5 years. my age now 43.
pressure 120/80, taking 1 medicine at night
diabetics (fasting 6-7, abf 8-10) taking 1 medicine at night.
is it enough for my health risk

Doctor

A:   Hi
Duration and control of diabetes and blood pressure is very important. If it is under control than there is no need to worry, but uncontrolled diabetes and blood pressure can cause multiple health problems.
1 or 2 or more medicine is not a matter of concern, quality of life and control of disease is more important.
take care
