Mr Selvamani, If you have confirmed T2 DM, then there is no way that can be controlled without medicine. In prediabetic condition one can control that without medicine and postpone getting diabetes. But once a person gets it then drug treatment is essential. Plus you have to exercise daily for at least 1 hour and take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, canned fruit juices, ghee, butter and high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. This routine will help in better control of blood sugar.

Walking tends to cause more strain on the knees every time you step forward, while cycling keeps the knee intact and works only on movement. You could also try some strength training exercises along with the above.

You have to start with body detoxification by vaman karma followed by rasayan medicines for 3 months. Both cholesterol & diabetes will come under control, but lifestyle change is a must.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify what do you mean by "My kidney has started to attack due to diabetes. Diabetic also in control. Please understand when diabetes is present for a number of years whether well controlled or not, it does affect the kidneys. There is no special medication for that. Best is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg and HbA1c%<7. Plus if you have high BP then taking ACE - Inhibitors or ARBs is helpful. Thanks.

Mr Iqbal, If your sugar levels are as follows : Fasting <100mg and PP closer to 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7, then it can be said that diabetes is under control. For controlling pyorrhea, maintain good oral hygiene, use mouth wash twice a day, brush teeth at least twice a day. Plus better to see a dental surgeon.

Hi, Yes, you are a borderline case of diabetes. You do not need any medication right now, but should follow strict diabetic diet and walk daily for one hour. Avoid all whites like Maida, sugar, carbohydrates, etc. Consume high fiber diet. Include lot of vegetables both raw and cooked in your diet. Eat in small quantities frequently. Be active and avoid sedentary lifestyle. Keep checking your blood sugar levels regularly once in, 15 days or one month.

Does acv controls diabetes and weight? Please provide benefits and side effects of acv.
Thanks for the query. A lot of benefits are claimed about Apple Cider Vinegar. But all these are more claims, no specific clinical trials are there. You may try it if interested. As regards diabetes treatment it is only through appropriate modern medicines that it can be controlled. Plus diet restrictions and regular exercise with weight control. Other things may be just additional for mental satisfaction. Thanks.

If you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes (the most common type of diabetes), you may be able to reduce your Insulin dose by using the newer medications like DPP-4 inhibitors ("Gliptins"). Also, regular exercise & dietary changes may help reducing your Insulin dose.
