Dear Dr. S

Mr. lybrate-user, Following are the criteria to decide if some one has normal blood glucose or not: 1) Normal: Fasting 70 to 110 mg, PP <140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9. 2) Pre-diabetes: FBS:108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg /100 ml & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4.3) Diabetes: FBS: 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above, HbA1c% 6.5 and above. If some one is in pre-diabetes stage, then adapting a modified lifestyle will help in keeping blood glucose under control. What it means is to exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day, maintain normal weight and BMI (<23 kgs/M2) and avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and those foods made from maida. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain products. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. By following this one can prevent progression to diabetes or postpone it. Thanks.

Regular cold sneezing episodes could could be due to dns (deviated nasal septum) ent opinion and examination required. Your sugar levels are quite well controlled and metformin is first line drug for type 2 diabetes. You should continue that. Take it after breakfast instead so gastric symptoms will be less. Check your hba1c level. Try to keep it near 6.5. It is more reliable test.

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.

Yes. Every cell of a body including all vital organs most importantly brain cell requires adequate sugar level in blood every minute for energy and functioning say around 100 mg%. Low sugar levels as low as 50 mg% certain natural mechanisms in body come into action immediately and if blood sugars do not come up and sustain low sugar will result in at its worst into coma and convulsions. If not rectified may lead into death or irreversible coma.
