Actually what ever we consume anything, it gets convert into glucose by our body for energy. Means everything we consume contains glucose. Nw the quesstion is if everything contains glucose then what to take in high sugar levels. You will consume those things having less sugar contents chappati compossed of bajra, chana nd a little wheat fruits papaya nd little bit apple cucumber,

Hello, Thanks for the query. Looking at the blood glucose levels mentioned, it appears that presently your diabetes is in good control. Please tell me whether you are only on Insulin or along with that there are oral drugs also? Ideally blood glucose should be: FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. That helps one to remain free from long term complications of diabetes. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Both fasting and PP levels need to be brought down. To do that first an appropriate medicine has to be started, then one has to plan a diet based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Hence, unless all details are made available, it is difficult to give any suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidance, no prescriptions are allowed. Hence, it will be better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation), then I will be able to give specific guidance and prescription also. Please inform weight, height, diet pattern, extent of daily exercise, HbA1c%, lipid profile & BP readings. Thanks.

Ideally to know whether a person is a diabetic or not blood sugar levels have to be checked after 12 hours of fasting (preferably in the morning) that is called as fasting sugar levels and after 2 hours of meal that is called as PP. If the sugar levels in these 2 tests are above normal then there are chances that a person is diabetic. Sugar levels checked anytime of the day are random and doesn't give the exact picture to diagnose a diabetic patient.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user Can you just provide some details that what is your sugar level - random, fasting & PP. One thing I want to tell you that diabetes is only a lifestyle hazard, you can treat your diabetes by just following a well structured diet. Any medicines will never cure your diabetes. Infact we have plenty of examples who have cured their diabetes by just following a good diet plan and too in a very short period of time. So I would suggest you to treat your diabetic condition with diet only instead of medicines. Hope you got your answer. If you have any query then you can text me anytime. Best Of Luck.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. First thing is his blood glucose levels have to be maintained close to the desired limits. Like FBG < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c%<7. Plus you can use moisturising creams plus white petroleum jelly application, every day, first wash the feet. Do this over many days. Always make him use footwear at home & outside. If need be do consult a skin specialist. Thanks.
