it is essential to the blood sugar near to normal levels, that is fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <7. If this is achieved, then you will feel much healthier and strong. There is no separate drug required for tightening the muscles. You need to do some muscle strengthening exercise apart from walking at least 2 to 3 times a week, that will help. Increase your protein intake. Star regular jogging for 5 km or so at least 2- 3 times a week. Send all details as mentioned above plus present drugs being taken with dosage, diet pattern and extent of exercise. Then I will be able to guide.

You might be having rebound hyperglycaemia in your fasting sample, because with 25 units of actrapid your post meal level is 145 only meaning insulin is effectively controlling it. Possibly after the evening dose of insulin and a longer interval between dinner and lunch, by the early hours of morning your blood sugar might be going below normal without your knowledge while you are asleep. At this the internal mechanisms of body release anti insulin hormones and the morning blood sugar in fasting samples is raised. The doctors even somtimes get misguided by this and further increase the evening dose of insulin insead of reducing it. In your case the evening dose may be reduced by 2 units and afte about 1 week the fasting sample be rechecked. It should show normal or near normal level.

Diabetes me kaun kaun se fruits daily kha sakte hain. Aur which dry friut also. please help me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, one can eat papaya, water melon, apple, orange, sweet lime, guava, pear, pomegranate and other melons. But only about 100 g a day, that too with excellent blood sugar control. Dry fruits can be taken but with a restricted quantity.

Yes it is harmful. You have to have strict sugar control and if high blood pressure is there then take ace - inhibitor like ramipril.
