Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. First and foremost is please consult a qualified Diabetologist for proper treatment. A dietician can only help in your diet related issues. Your glucose levels seem to be well controlled. Please also check the HbA1c5, see that it is maintained < 6.8. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that with a BMI of 26.50 kgs/Sq meter,(Norma < 23 kgs) you are having an excess of 0ver 8 kgs. This needs to be corrected. So please give a closer look at your diet and daily exercise. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, I have gone through your query, and understand your concern. If diabetes is uncontrolled, then there is considerable loss of glucose through urine, due to which you feel exhausted and also loose weight. Blood glucose 445 mg is too high. It needs to be controlled rapidly. Ideally blood glucose should be Fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, then only one is able to prevent or postpone all the long term complications of diabetes. Otherwise there can be very severe consequences. You have not mentioned whether there is any treatment going on currently, if yes give details. If not then it has to be initiated forthwith. For which you will have to come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary patter, extent of daily exercise. Based on those I will be able to guide and get your diabetes under control. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. Thanks.

Diabetes can occur at any age, you should first know the cause of it, so that appropriate action can be taken, also you can start having methi (fenugreek) water in the morn, besides get a diet plan for yourself. Eat at regular intervals at every 3-4 hours also avoid refined grains (rice, maida) have food rich in fiber like whole grains, fruits etc.

Your blood sugar level is high so avoid sweets as more as possible. Take pranacharya diabeto capsule and shilajeet capsule twice a day. Instead of these tablets in my opinion you should go for ayurvedic medicines for sgot & sgpt.

Your insulin is not being utilized fully or doesnt produce. That is what type 2 and type 1 is. You have to get the support of certain herbs which are openly available in market but since not selected with precision decisions, some people do not get desired effects. Please write any other history/tests etc. For herbal combos initially you have to take as supporting therapy. Depending upon response, we ll take further step. Pl write in confidence. We may advise or send package also.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to control blood sugar following things need to be done: 1) take prescribed medications regularly in proper dose without missing, 2) take a restricted diet providing exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (ibw= height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), 3) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastrie 4) refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk, 5) exercise daily for at least 1 hour. 6) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day)

The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.

Mr. lybrate-user P Bayer, Thanks for the query. Both Insulins are similar, having a combination of rapid acting and slow acting insulins. There is hardly any difference. Thanks.
