It is correct to count blood sugar post breakfast instead of meal. Will the count differ variably?

It is correct to count blood sugar post breakfast instead of meal. Will the count differ variably?
Mr. Lybrate-user, usually fasting sugar level is done after at least 8 hours after food (dinner), then again for convenience sake after food (after breakfast) is checked. If post lunch blood glucose is checked it may vary depending upon the size of meal. If your lunch is bigger in quantity than breakfast then blood glucose level will be more. The idea of taking after breakfast is to get an idea of post food level to decide the treatment.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is not detected early and high glucose levels remain for long time, then patients lose glucose through urine, which invariably results in unexplained weight loss, loss of energy, tiredness and early fatigue. Once blood glucose is well controlled, then weight stabilises, energy level returns to normal and person feels fairly healthy and active. In your communication there is no mention of actual current blood glucose levels (Fasting & PP) and HbA1c% and also about the drugs being taken. As regards alternate therapy to control blood glucose, unfortunately a lot of falls claims are made by various people saying they can control blood glucose effectively or cure it completely. But nothing really happens. Only option for you is to stick to current therapy and ensure that glucose levels are well within the prescribed limit. Ideally fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then only it is considered as well controlled diabetes. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry. Thyroid problem can also be completely cure with homoeopathic medicines. Homoeopathic medicine like thuja, natrum mur, sepia, calc phos etc can cure pcos and thyroidinum, bromium, calc carb, spongia, calc iod, etc can cure thyroid problems also.

Diabetes is a non communicable disease. There are hereditary predispositions and certain environmental precursors but eating large amounts of sweets does not cause diabetes.

The report is not good. This shows liver is under some infection. SGOT SGPT if both are that much elevated then proper treatment has to be started. So first thing you should do is see a Gastroenterologist immediately. You need to stop alcohol immediately if applicable, avoid fried and fatty foods. Take simple home cooked meal, go for walk daily, have fruits like coconut, banana etc. It will take few months to bring things to normal.

100/60 is not low if you are passing uridine and the body is warm. Your symptoms are not related to your blood sugar and bp.

What is the reason behind diabetes?
And what precautions should be taken to prevent from us?
Whenever beta cells in the pancreas are damaged than insulin production in the body is hampered and hence blood sugar in the blood rises and hence we get diabetes.

I am diabetic 26 years old. Hba1c 7.5 .how long I will use metformin ?will I use it throughout my life?
The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.

Check your urine for albumin creatinine ratio. You are young and have renal impairment which is not a good news. Are you on insulin therapy. That is your best medicine. You can consult me with this report.

Fasting glucose<100 mg/dl is defined as normal. So a fasting of 99 mg/dl is definitely borderline. However, do not worry too much. Exercise a lot. Eat healthy.

Dear lybrate-user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Your brother can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also he needs to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also he needs to take a low carbohydrate rich diet & avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.
