Mr. lybrate-user, To control blood glucose following things should be observed: 1) Take appropriate medications, as prescribed regularly without missing a single dose, 2) Take a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. 3) Try and maintain near normal weight (60 kgs), by regular exercise and diet, 4) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, 5) Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) 6) Take small meals 4 to 5 times a day, total intake has to be within the recommended quantity. Ideally FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, for achieving very good control. Thanks.

My father (Male / 78 yrs) used to take Glimser Forte 2 (once daily) for Type 2 Diabetes, but the new medication from a reputed hospital has him taking trajenta 5 mg (once daily), and Glycomet 500 SR (twice daily) instead. He feels that his sugar was better controlled with Glimser Forte 2. I want to know the difference, and why the new medication. He has nephrology issues with his Creatinine around 1.7.

Due to his increased Creatinine, he required modifications in treatment. Trajenta is safe for kidney patients. That's why it was added along with decreasing dose of metformin, which was higher in glimser forte 2. Metformin is excellent drug for sugar control that's why he might feel with it, his sugars we're better, But seeing his age and Creatinine status, higher dose of metformin is harmful in longer duration.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given in the query. But there is absolutely no informmmation on her actual current blood glucose levels like fasting, PP & HbA1c% or the drugs being taken with dosage. Also no information on her dietary habits and whether she exercises daily. Unless these details are there there in no way I can give any opinion or comment. The information is very general. Plus if the weight & height mentioned is hers then she is close to be in grade 1 obesity with a BMI 29.68 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). This itself can be a major contributing factor for uncontrolled diabetes. So if you come in a private conversation with all the relevant details then I will be able to give specific advise. Thanks,

A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees or hips is the most common symptom. Osteoarthritis treatment: homeopathy helps to slow down the process of joint pain (osteoarthritis) & also gives a long term relief in pain without side effects.

You need to maintain your tsh between 1 &2 for a proper control. Then you will start losing weight. Also exercise only on empty stomach. That will solve your problem.

Can't say for sure but could be due to neuropathy due to diabetes or any other cause. Kindly elaborate on your symptoms. Include vit b12 rich food in your diet. (like meat fish) or take over the counter available suppliments. Include exercise in your routine. Focusing on your back also. But never involving too much bending and lifting weights together. These are few things coming to my mind with your limited history. You can get back to me if you want more information on d same.

It won't effect your children but try to complete your family asap as being diabetic may affect your potency and virility in future. Moreover take hood care of your sugar levels to ensure longevity and to avoid future complications of diabetes.
