My father was experiencing some burning sensation in his feet. He was later diagnosed with increased blood glucose level. Since December 2015 he is taking medicine regularly. The sugar level although in control, there is no relief from burning sensation in feet. Moreover, it was weird to see that the sugar level in the morning was higher than that after lunch. We have consulted many specialists for this, even in pune, but nobody could tell us the reason for higher sugar level in the morning. Moreover the burning sensation has not yet been cured so far. I would appreciate if an expert can guide me about the problem.

After lunch the hormones work to bring the sugar down so the level may be lower than the fasting. U should not be much worried abt it. Write his latest sugar F/PP, hb a1c, BP and lipid profile and any other test done in past along with details of medicine he is taking on chat for proper assessment and advise, I will help your father to feel better.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes t2, then appropriate drugs are required to control sugar. The drug mentioned by you is not a specific anti diabetic one. It has not been tried in human beings. Only laboratory mice it was tried on with just 67% results which is worse than a placebo. I suggest you shift to proper modern medicines for treatment.

Living Well With Type 2 Diabetes

Living Well With Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body deals with glucose in the blood and the glucose absorbed from the food you ingest. Diabetes is generally of two basic types - Type 1 and Type 2. Apart from these two types, there are other kinds as well including gestational diabetes that some women suffer from during their pregnancy. Type 2 Diabetes is a condition where the cells of the body do not make proper use of the insulin being produced by the pancreas.

Living with this kind of a condition may seem debilitating at first, but here are a few things you can do to make life easier despite Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Weight: Being overweight is one the foremost side effects and sometimes, even cause of Type 2 Diabetes. To make your life easier, you can lose weight so that the complications involved are that much less. Diet and exercise are key for appropriate weight loss. Watch your diet so that you can eliminate high cholesterol as well. This can ensure that unnecessary amount of fat does not stick to your muscles and organs, which in turn will fuel better functioning of the same.
  • Health Care Providers: Being fit with Type 2 Diabetes does not merely mean staying within your normal weight range. It also means taking care of your medication and insulin doses so that you can function in a more normal way. Make your family and friends your support system as you go about life so that people can help you and recognize symptoms when something goes wrong. Be in constant touch with your health care providers and the general physician you see so that they are in the loop and you know exactly what to do in case there is an emergency.
  • Exercise: Being active is a great way to keep your blood sugar level low even as you ensure that you heart is in good condition. This will further eliminate the risk of heart disease, hypertension and high cholesterol. Sweating it out also helps the insulin work in a better manner within your body.
  • Balance: While you may be asked to remove sugar from your diet, there is no need to stay away from proper meals. You can have a fiber rich diet that also has plenty of fruits and vegetables so that you get your due nutrition to maintain a fit body.

Watching your lifestyle is the main thing you need to do if you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

My uncal have diabetic. 400 above so he have also pain from back to legs so tell any best Dr. In new delhi.
If he has not started treatment for diabetes, then he should consult a diabetologist urgently as blood sugar value of 400 mg is too high and risky. As regards the back pain he may see an orthopedician.

Hi, your reports show that your blood sugar levels are gradually increasing and your hba1c is definitely high. Therefore, it confirms that you are diabetic. But right now you need not be on oral hypoglycaemics. Be on strict diabetic diet (avoid direct sugar) and start walking for 1 hour daily for one month and then check your fbs and ppbs along with urine sugar and revert back with the reports. If the values are within normal range, then you can control diabetes with strict diet and exercise for the time being.
