I am 41 years old I have sugar problem from last 10 years. I am taking tablet Glycomet trio 2/.3 for three times in a day. But still my sugar level is high. Fasting 170 and after food 220. Can you suggest any other medicine or combination.

Thank you for the query. From your question I gather that you are already on glycomet trio (2 mg/500 mg/0.3 mg) thrice a day. This implies that you are on quite a high dose of oral anti diabetic agents. However, your sugar levels tend to remain high. I would like to enquire about your hbaic as that will give a better picture about your control. At this stage I would advice you to modify your diet (1400-1500 kcal) per day and opt for a exercise regimen (30 min per day for 5 days a week). Please get your eyes and renal functions checked. I would also advise you to monitor your blood sugar levels at home with a glucometer if possible.

Is diabetes related to excess of sugar intake ? How is insulin helpful in curing Diabates ?

Is diabetes related to excess of sugar intake ? How is insulin helpful in curing Diabates ?
Diabetes is not related to excess of sugar intake. Insulin is not helpful in curing diabetes but definitely in controlling diabetes. There has been some studies to prove whether early initiation of insulin can cure diabetes however results are not encouraging.

I am 54 years old and suffering from diabetic at present my sugar level is 202 (PP), pl advise me.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hair loss is not due to vitamind low levels or increase in sweat but it seems to be due to fungal infection of the hair follicles as baldness is in patches.
