Your sugars are ok. But diabetic drugs are taken usually half an hour before taking food. You are saying you are taking after food.

If you are not able to go for a walk daily, then stay active in some form or other like climbing stairs at your home. Secondly, for leg pain dip your legs in warm water daily before going to bed, it improves blood circulation.

I am writing the answer as a pathologist , so would not be able to comment on treatment part , but yes most of your problems seem to be related to high sugar levels, which is also not controlled. Secondly, your cholesterol levels are on higher side and you would need to recheck that . Give a sample after 12 hours of fasting only. You may need to take medicines for that also. Is your BP on control ?

Your blood sugar is still in the higher range although not very high. You should have a better control of diabetes. At same time avoiding hypoglycaemia. You need readjustment of your medicines.

Although consuming alcohol is dangerous habit for diabetics but if your health allows nd your sugar levels r normal nd you consume strict 30-40 ml per day then itss ok, otherwise it can prove fatal at any level of your life.

Glaucoma, does occur as a complication of uncontrolled diabetes. Most important is to achieve a strict blood sugar control. Good control means fasting should be 100 mg & pp around 150 to 160 mg/100 ml. & hba1c% <7.

Follow these best methods for treatment of hair fall • Add protein containing items in your foods for healthy hair growth such as take a bowl of cereal daily and a glass of milk or 100 gm cheese or 1-2 eggs.. • Stress is one of the main cause of hair fall. To reduce hairfall, Practice Yogasana like SHIRSHASANA and SARWANGASANA only under the guidance of Expert. • you can use MAHABHRINGRAJ TEL of BAIDYANATH COMPANY and apply it 3 times in a week massage your scalp for 10 to 15 minutes daily. It increases blood circulation in your scalp and enhances hair growth. • Avoid the excess use of products such as hair colours or shampoo as they cause destruction of hair follicles. * Take Vitamin-E rich foods like dry fruits (Almonds, Pista etc) daily. * Apply the egg yolk to the scalp atleast once a week. It gives nourishment to hair root and enhances hair growth.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Since you r a diabetic stop eating Dairy products and wheat Wheat is a gluten and the hybrid type of wheat you get now is not good for your pancreas. U need to do certain blood work also .please visit my website and get educated to eat healthy live healthy and stay healthy. I will be able to able to help you more if you come on a private chat.

Hello first thing is to always keep you sugar levels as close to normal as possible. Fasting up to 110 mg and pp closer to 150 mg. Check hba1c and maintain it around 6 per cent. Exercise daily for atleast one h. Avoid deep fried foods and sweets. No mangoes and chikkoos and grapes. Keep your body weight in check. No smoking and very little alcohol.

I am 49 yr old male dm2 + htn since 10 yrs. Pressure normal 130/ 80 with medication repace 25mg + stamlo (amlodipine) 2.5mg and blood glucose control pp 120 with zoryl 1mg at the time of break fast but fasting readings vary between 6.5 - 7.5. I take metformin extended release 1000mg after supper. But the fasting readings never fall below 6.5. I am sports enthusiast and play badminton thrice a week at expert level. With exercise in the evening the reading tend to rise as my intake goes up. Please advise me any long acting glucose control medicine for 24 hrs control well within 5.8. My hb1ac has always been well below 7.0 mostly remains 6.5. If hb1ac readings are well with in the range can ignore the fasting readings or is it equally important to maintain the fasting reading below 5.8 to prevent cardiac issues later. I also take cholesterol lowering drug fibator - half tab to maintain my ldl well below 80. Should you need any further details please write to me. Last but not the least use of sulfonylurea antidiabetic drug in the morning some cause hypo close to lunch time. I am worried of the side effects of this drug in long term. Kindly advise me alternate if any to this. My staple food is rice with daal, curry and curds. Pure veg

Looking at your details it appears your diabetes is in check. Slight high fasting is no problem. Nowadays hba1c level is looked at as guideline to assess control. You need not change anything. If pp levels go up can add voglibose 0.3 mg three times with each meal. Otherwise you are doing well. While playing if you feel levels are low always carry candy or gluco tabs.

If my sugar level is 230 before fasting then what medicine to take it to control.

If my sugar level is 230 before fasting then what medicine to take it to control.
Sugar control is not just based on the numerical value of sugar level that the patient has- it sugar treatment was that easy then instead of doctors a mobile app would have told you the medicine!!! Your Sugar level of 250mg/dl is very high and as such needs holistic approach of diet-medicines-exercise for its control.

diabetic person it is essential to follow dietary guide lines like avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk food and pastries. Sweets increase the blood sugar very quickly being a simple carbohydrate. If he wants to lead a complication free life then stopping sugar and sweet eating has to be followed. You may think of replacing sugar with sucralose,
