It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello. It is very important for you to take care of your health. As diabetes can harm heart as well as kidneys and other organs. But. In your case reports are good and looks like sitagliptin works well for you. Weight control. Less carbs. More proteins. No soft drinks. No beer. That will help. Never to smoke and to take less oily food. Feel free to consult me if you need on this.
