How to. Maintain suger. Level if pp is. 180. And fasting. Is 80.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Are you under care of a diabetologist or a senior physician who is good in handling such case? glimepiride 5 mg instead of giving full dose of metformin is a bit odd. Of course it is my personal opinion. Usually we do not cross 2 to 3 mg of glimepiride in usual cases, though up to 8 mg can be given. At first we raise the dose of the metformin to 2 gm then add glimepiride. Sir whatever I have written it is what we usually do. Your doctor might have judged it the best and required condition for you. You better talk to him, he shall help you to reduce your blood sugar. In the mean time you bring your weight down to the level of 65 kg (not a kg more). That also shall help you to bring down your blood sugar with less amount of medicine.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height the bmi is 32.19 kgs /m2, showing grade 1 obesity (normal <23 kgs/m2). For better control of blood glucose it is necessary to maintain normal weight. Your ideal body weight (ibw) should be62 kgs. Therefore to control blood glucose level apart from taking insulin and other drugs it essential to reduce weight. That will also help in controlling lipid levels. Any exercise is as good as other. It is better to start with brisk walking for at least 1 hour a day. Later you can upgrade to jogging. You should also do strength building exercise on 2 days a week in addition to aerobic activity. Plus certain yogasanas and pranayam will also be beneficial. Blood sugar control will need insulin, oral drugs plus exercise, weight reduction and diet control. All these factors together will help. Thanks.

Depends on what medicine you are going to take, certain ayurveda medicine contains sugar and honey that should be avoided, rest under guidance of expert ayurveda doctor, you can surely take ayurvedic medications, in fact ayurvedic medications can prevent complications of diabetes like diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy, cardiopathy etc.

Hello, alphascope is nothing but a type of hysteroscope with high resolution. It is to look into the uterine cavity or the womb and do corrective procedures if need be. Cost of hysteroscopy would depend on the intervention done during procedure. It is a safe procedure, commonly done. All the best. Your friend probably needs to consult a good infertility consultant before deciding. Good luck.

From your age, I assume you are a type 1 diabetic. If so, insulin is the only option for you. However, if you are a type 2 diabetic, you have many choices of medicines available today. So, please provide more info.
