How to get rid of sugar. How to control it. Wat are the precautions we have to take to decrease sugar level.

How to get rid of sugar. How to control it. Wat are the precautions we have to take to decrease sugar level.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus or commonly referred as" sugar' problem, occurs due to either lack of hormone insulin or resistance to its action seen in overweight and inactive persons or due to both the reasons. Hence, this condition can not be cured, it can only be controlled by proper treatment, diet control and regular exercise with weight control. Precautions to be taken include taking a well balanced but restricted diet that gives required calories and regular daily exercise for more than 1 hour a day, so as to maintain near normal weight. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, permitted fruits (100 g a day), avoid alcohol and smoking.

Sirs, I am diabetic since my 44 and now I’m 50. I took alcohol up to 3 large twice in a week and had smoking habit. My PP BGL suddenly increased to 500 two months before and doctor prescribed to take insulin Apidra 4 IU thrice daily before food and Lantus 20 IU daily before bed. Also I’m having Tab. Glyciphage SR and Glucozide 40 twice daily. Now the BGL is normal but it will be high (200 in fasting) when I’m stopping the injection even for one day. Taking only tablets is not effective. I need advice how can I getting normal.

If your blood sugar is not in control, then there is a possibility of loosing weight as more glucose is excreted. So first thing is get your sugar level in control. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, when on treatment. Then only your health is likely to improve.

Sugars keep fluctuating every second of your life. It's a very complex interplay of hormones,stress level,activity medication and the food intake. So,though your sugars may seem to be under control,slow and gradual changes do occur at the cellular level. So,it is advisable to get the check up done at regular intervals

Mr. Lybrate-user, to effectively control diabetes first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs, as prescribed by the doctor with out missinga dose. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain weight and improve insulin action, reduce resistance to its action. Plus take a restricted diet based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels, and extent of daily exercise. Thses things together will help in controlling diabetes. All the best.
