I am 60 years old woman, my sugar test results are: fasting- 340 mg/dl, sugar PP- 510mg/dl. How serious is it? Shall I take insulin?

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels mentioned are really very high and serious. They suggest that she must have been having diabetes since a year or more. Immediate initiation of treatment is a must. It looks like insulin is needed, plus oral drugs also. In addition some necessary physical exercise and diet control also are required. She has to stop sweets completely, avoid aerated sweetened drinks like colas, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and high fat milk products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day).

Dear lybrate-user, your weakness isn't related to your blood sugar levels. At your age ageing, poor heart function, muscular atrophy, nutritional insufficiency and mental stress or depression are common but overlooked causes of weaknesses. Visit a doctor in your area, get necessary tests done and treat the cause. Don't worry. Regards.

You need to consult an endocrinologist immediately for diet and life style planning along with medicines. Your target fasting sugar should be <100 mg/dl and 2h post meal blood glucose should be <140 mg/dl as you are really young and you deserve a long healthy life ahead.

Hi, The precautions to be followed are as follows: - Avoid all whites like rice, sugar, maida,etc. - Eat in small quantities 4-5 servings per day. - Walk daily for 1 hour. - Avoid intake of oil fried food and sweets. - Take medicines prescribed by the doctor regularly. - Visit your doctor regularly for follow up check-ups. - Get your sugar levels checked once in a month and try to keep it under control. - Get rid of mental tensions and worries. - Be active always and avoid sedentary life style. - Perform yoga and meditation to keep your mind calm. - Consume lot of fiber in your diet which lowers your cholesterol levels .

You can try to maintain a healthy lifestyle (change your lifestyle for better sugar control ). Start exercising everyday and eat only healthy, nutritious and balanced diet. Repeat the tests after one month and visit a doctor for a personal checkup. Please read more about Diabetes and it's management, and give priority to your health. Go for regualr health check up and take the doctors opinion. You can contact me later with the reports.

Hi lybrate-user, Unfortunately your father needs a physical workup before being prescribed medications. There is little we can do on a computer. However, if you would like to know how good is his diabetes control, you can get some blood workup done Fasting Blood sugar; Post Prandial Blood sugar; HbA1c; Renal Function Test; Lipid Profile; PSA; Urine Complete; Microalbumin and an ECG. The above are the most essential investigations. There are plenty more that can be suggested.

Hello please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber, multivitamin nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. Let me know if I can help you with more information. Have a nice day.
