Hello madam, blood sugar level of 202 post lunch is not normal and you must undergo further testing. You have to undergo a test named hba1c which will help to determine your blood sugar level over past three months and in turn help to understand if you are suffering from diabetes. For itching and dryness, you can apply hydramost lotion all over your body or only on the area where you get itching. Dryness causes itching which in turn increases the dryness and further increases itching.

Taking medicines is not enough. Is your diabetes (blood sugar) in control? what is your hba1c level? localized itching is often caused by uncontrolled diabetes. It can be caused by a yeast (fungal) infection, dry skin, or poor circulation. When poor circulation is the cause of itching, the itchiest areas may be the lower parts of the legs. You may be able to treat itching yourself. First, control your blood sugar levels. Second, limit your showers or baths to no more than 10 minutes, pat dry, and moisturize while your skin is still damp.

For age of 66 your fasting blood sugars are on lower side no details of medication and sugar levels after food and at dinner. If blood sugars are in normal range 120 -140 or so and if your calorie intake is appropriate with light exercise like 40 minutes of walk, annual check up reports are well within limits including hb a1 c you should be satisfied with diabetes part. You should have just one detail check up with a physician about other possible causes. If reports are normal carry on with nourishing regular diet, milk and some energy or vitamin supplements.

At this point of time, diabetes is one of the most chronic, fastest growing lifestyle disease in the world. Also known as diabetes mellitus, the condition is basically a metabolic disorder, wherein the human body cannot store and use fuel for the energy. This fuel or glucose is the one that powers all our bodily organs and ensures that we have the energy to carry out activities throughout the day.

And while diabetes is a popular medical condition, a lot of people don't have much information about it. Although, they know the major types of diabetes, they have no clue about the difference between them. Here we outline type I vs type ii diabetes-

***type I diabetes- formerly known as juvenile onset or insulin dependent diabetes, type I diabetes is the one in which your body's immune system destroys all kinds of cells that release insulin. Over a period of time, this results in elimination of insulin production from the body, because of which the cells cannot absorb glucose or sugar and produce energy. Type I diabetes have episodes of low blood sugar level and it cannot be problem. Symptoms usually start from childhood or young adulthood.

***type ii diabetes- the adult onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes can develop at any age, particularly after the 30s, although the cases of same are rising rapidly among children. This type of diabetes involves production of insulin, but not in a right way, a condition known as insulin resistance. For this kind of diabetes, the person usually might not have symptoms before the diagnoses and there are rarely any episodes of low sugar level. It can be easily prevented or delayed by following a healthy lifestyle and indulging in regular exercising.

If you have any of the above symptoms or have more questions related to diabetes, click on consult privately to ask me.

If any suggestion is to be made, then I need to know following things: Patients age, weight, height, blood glucose levels fasting, PP & HbA1c%, lipid profile, present treatment with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done daily. So if you are looking for proper advise and treatment come back with these details preferably in a private conversation then I will be able to guide. Thanks.
