The anti diabetic medicine have these kind of troubles... and it may be age related... If you wish quick fix then you may have to take Sildenafil but i will advise against it.. Instead you may try Damiagra Drops (homoeoapthy)..

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the FBG 119 mg, is in the pre-diabetes state. Whereas HbA1c% 8.95 shows presence of diabetes for quite some time and it is not in control. TGL value is slightly high, no need to worry about it. Plus you have mentioned eltroxin as the medication being taken, which means there is hypothyroidism also. As regards eating paratha and curds yes you can have both, but your over all diet has to be controlled. Total caloric intake has to be regulated based on your weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Since diabetes is there, you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and certain fruits. Avoid colas, fructose corn syrup containing products and alcohol. Daily 1 hour of exercise is a must. Since you have not mentioned anything about treatment for diabetes, it appears youa are not yet taking treatment for that. You will have to initiate the treatment for that too. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Sometimes there is insulin resistance and many other factors which contribute to such situations (you may find the response is not satisfactory ). Please have patience and let you doctor reassess as frequently as possible. It may take some more time. You can discuss your concerns with the doctor. Aggressive changes in the treatment plan may not be favourable. You can always take a second opinion if needed. Thorough physical examination and regular monitoring is required in such cases. (the doctor may advise admission to the hospital if required.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon your blood sugar reports.

Hello, Thanks for the query. There is no medication which can help in reducing the sugar and sweet intake. It has to be your own resolve to stop consuming those things will help. Thanks.

General Physician,
Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
No he is in control with insulin and needs it to keep sugar level normal and you may know that diabetes is due to the body being unable to produce insulin and we have to give it from outside

My father tested fasting sugar and its result is 130. Is it dangerous or not? What type of precautions take?

Yes if you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows
