Only become dependent on medicines may not help you, you have to follow your doctor advice for diet and exercise. If your sugar are not under control, than it means you may require your insulin dosage to be set again or may require any additional medications.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please tell me whether you have totally stopped the oral anti-diabetic drugs with starting of Insulin injections? Or are you taking those also? It is essential to maintain FBG < 100 mg, Pp 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8 for being free from complications and also to be very healthy and for being healthy. The dose of Losartan 25 mg is fine the BP is not very high. In some persons heart rate may remain a bit high. Regular exercise will help in controlling it. Thanks.

Hi Nari, Diabetes is a metabolic disorder. our metabolism depends upon what type of food we have.Diabetes itself is the result of all over the long period. it's never like u can't have the sweet things but other things should be avoided or controlled on that day.If u like banana u can have small bite of it. also remember it has high glycemic index means more sugar content..What u love is more important.

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. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. 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. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. 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. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If 1 hour glucose (after OGTT 75 g) is 164 mg then it is not considered as Gestational diabetes. If it crosses 180 mg, then only GDM is diagnosed. It is better to take a healthy diet. Do not take sweets, but consume good deal of healthy foods and fruits. Thank.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, taking only medicines is not the solution towards controlling your sugar levels. For controlling your diabetes you have to follow proper diet, do some brisk walk along with medicines. These all 3 will work together and you will get to kwow how fit you can be. Controlling diabetes are important as fluctuations of sugar levels can cause many other problems also like heart problems, kidney disorder, etc. You need to follow a proper diet plan so that your sugar levels will be in normal range. There are some general guidelines you must follow till you consult for your own diet chart. 1. Avoid sugars. 2. Avoid simple carbohydrates like maida and its products, white rice etc 3. Have complex carbohydrates like whole wheat flour chapatis, oats, dalia, brown rice etc. 4. Avoid banana, chiku, mango, grapes. 5. Avoid fruits juices. 6. Avoid potatoes, sweet potato, arbi. 7. Have more salads and other vegetables. 8. Have small and frequent meals.
