No need for medicine if you maintain regular physical activity and proper diabetic diet, but check HbA1c and f/pp to find out the diabetic status. If any thing high then we can what is the next option. All the best.

You need vitamin-D in higher dosages for maybe few months along with Ca supplements. All diabetic patients do not require insulin injections 3 times in a day. I am sure your S. C.peptide and S. Insulin levels are low. If not then oral diabetic drugs can be given along with healthy nutritious diet.

CAN INSULIN RESISTANCE BE REVERSED? When I went for a regular check my gp saw the thickening on neck area and ordered a fasting insulin test it was 26. I haven't gone back to him yet. By googling this I have seen insulin resistance as the cause and also if I go without a meal for 6 hours I get sweaty and tired and crave food. My fasting bg is 78 and pp is 129.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, Dark discoloration and thickening of skin are signs of insulin resistance and it is known as acanthosis nigricans. This can be reversed by following healthy lifestyle. You should do regular physical activities and also try to follow balanced meal. Try to avoid more of simple carbs such as sugar, cold drinks, sweets and refined wheat products as these can ellevate sugar spikes and will further lead to more insulin resistance. This condition if not addressed can lead to Diabetes. To avoid complications you should also keep screening your blood glucose profile regularly. Take care!

You are probably suffering from PCOS. To diagnose this you will need a Pelvic USG and a hormonal assay done. Treatment will depend on these reports.

DIABETES AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES Diabetic diet is not a matter of deprivation or avoidance but of healthy eating habits. Genetic susceptibility appears to play a powerful role in the occurrence of type 2 DM, but the current epidemic likely reflects marked changes in lifestyle. Decreased physical activity and increased energy consumption have together promoted obesity, which is a strong risk factor for diabetes. Nutrition is an integral component of prevention, delayed onset and management of diabetes. Goals of diabetes management: Provide a nutritionally sound meal Attain and maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range as far as possible To attain and maintain desirable weight To maintain healthy levels of blood fat i. E. Cholestrol and triglycerides To prevent long term complications of diabetes Healthy eating; 60% of the calories should come from carbohydrates 12%-20% from protein 20% -35% from fats Food should be distributed equally throughout the day Choose foods from all food groups in all major meals Choose foods high in fiber as it slows digestion and gives a feeling of satiety Total fat and saturated fat should be limited, some amount of fat is essential for important body functions and it also helps slow gastric emptying. Whole grains should be chosen over refined cereals like sooji, sago, white bread, maida Whole dals have a very low GI index and should be included daily EXERCISE: · Exercise helps diabetics lower blood glucose · It helps the body use insulin better Exercising helps one control weight, develop lean muscle and reduce body fat Maintain adequate level of physical activity so as to achieve fitness and a negative energy balance 30 to 45 min of brisk walk daily is recommended.
