M these things should help in controlling blood sugar. R richard, the best solution is to achieve excellent sugar control like fasting to be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Plus dietary control and regular exercise.

Hello, Diabetes, also called diabetes mellitus, is a chronic nutritional or metabolic disorder in which a person has high level of glucose in the blood, either due to inadequate production of insulin or poor response of body’s cells to insulin or sometimes both. These days, the number of diabetic people is increasing rapidly due to widespread consumption of junk foods, sodas and colas and leading an unhealthy lifestyle. Whether you are a diabetic or pre-diabetic, the best way to combat diabetes is with the help of simple and effective home remedies. Take medicine do not stop. But cut the dose. Take at home You can also make hot or chilled teas, smoothies and porridge with cinnamon powder or stick added to them. This will not only enhance the taste of your meal but will also help to control your blood glucose level. Cinnamon is also available in supplement form. The recommended dose of cinnamon for diabetes is one gram each day.

Hello. Though your both of these values are within normal limit, but slight towards higher side. Take care of your diet. Avoid lots of fried things or other junk food. Do regular exercise. If you want any further consultation for any problem, you can ask me through private questions.

She is suffering from low grade urinary infection with acute exacerbation mostly aided due to her diabetic state. You haven't mentioned her blood sugar levels. It may be the problem area. Any such infection. If not controlled efficiently will cause it to spread upwards along the ureters and may reach kidneys causing a critical condition called payelonephritis. If bactrim ds is not giving relief you must urgently consult your physician. He might change the drug according to the culture report done recently. With good control of blood sugar she will recover as I hope.

Hi, Type-2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life! Medication: Take homoeopathic SBL’s Diaboherb medicine/ 3 times a day daily. Home Remedies: Dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. Take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Mr. lybrate-user Shamal, Thanks for the query. When a person gets diabetes, at that time almost 50 % of his Beta cells are non functional. Further, because of continued high blood glucose levels (above normal) beta cells are further damaged. Because of this majority of T2 DM patients after many years of having diabetes will need insulin along with oral drugs. But not that every one will require. Thanks.
