Which food I can include in my diet.

Doctor

A:   You are having a urinary tract infection and that should be treated before anything else. It seems like your diabetes is not controlled because the urine test showed +4 sugar; that is pretty high. This means that your diabetes, perhaps uncontrolled for years, destroyed your kidneys; this is most probably the reason why you are spilling proteins and sugar to the urine. It will be hard to tell what diet you should follow because blood tests are needed for that (you have not mentioned recent blood tests). You should have yourself checked by a doctor as soon as possible because urinary tract infections, especially in diabetic patients, can easily progress or invade the bloodstream; when this happens there will be serious, life-threatening consequences and you definitely need antibiotics promptly. Your condition can not be treated by diet alone. I do hope I have answered your question and take care always.
