I'm suffering from diabetes, Fasting 128 and pp 150 Please suggest medicines for this problem.

I'm suffering from diabetes,
Fasting 128 and pp 150
Please suggest medicines for this problem.
Fasting 128 mg, shows diabetes but pp 150 mg is in the pre - diabetes range. Hence, it is better if you get hba1c% done. If that is >6.5% then diabetes is confirmed and in that situation treatment is needed. If diabetes is not confirmed (hba1c%<6.5), then yu need to take precautions like reduce weight (ideal body weight 60 kgs), exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, food products made of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), smoking and alcohol. Daily at least 1 hour's exercise is needed. If you follow a modified lifestyle, then you can delay or prevent developing full fledged diabetes. Thanks.

What are the main reasons for diabetes. Please conform me once whether prediabetes patient will get surely diabetes.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus occurs due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is true with t2 dm. In t1 diabetes there is no insulin production by beta cells of pancreas, usually due to autoimmune problem. There are anti bodies against beta cells. T2 dm is a familial disease. If both parents have diabetes then 75% of off-springs are likely to it. It is also a preventable disease. Persons with pre diabetic stage can prevent or delay developing of diabetes by adapting a healthier life style. 1) maintain normal weight, avoid central obesity (fat around abdomen), 2) adapt an active life style, exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walk is ideal, 3) take a proper balanced diet, avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed foods. 4) refrain from alcohol and smoking 5) maintain a bmi <23 kg /m2.8) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits.

When should I do the screening test for diabetes mellitus if I have strong predisposing factor?
Yogaji, if you want to check out, do it any time now. A fasting and after food glucose test will give an idea. Fasting sugar level of 70 to 110 mg and after food <140 mg / 100 ml levels are normal. Fasting >126 mg pp >200 mg /100 ml is diabetes. Fasting 100 to 125 mg is impaired fasting glucose. Pp 141 to 199 mg is impaired glucose tolerance also called as pre diabetic condition.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Dear . There s nothing to worry. Just keep a close watch. Include daily exercise of at least half hour in your schedule. Keep check of body weight. Avoid sugar/sweet intake in excesses. Drink plenty of fluids and get your hba1c repeated after 3 months and fasting. Pp sugar after a week. Just let me know the reports. At this time nothing more than this required. One additional drug could be added but only after a repeat b. Sugar f/ pp report.
