Hello, thanks for the query. I have seem the details mentioned. Usually following any infection blood glucose levels do tend to go up, unless one takes all the required precautions in terms of diet and medications. In case of covid, if steroids are given during the treatment, then blood glucose bound to go up, because corticosteroids are known to increase blood glucose levels (they are diabetogenic). As now you are on treatment if well controlled then your fbg should be < 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% < 6.5% considering your age. Since there is no mention of current glucose levels and hba1c%, no further comments can be made. If glucose levels are not coming down as mentioned, then there is a need to look at the over all treatment including diet, extent of daily exercise and weight control. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

Dear doctor, I am a diabetic patient taking metformin. Can I take diabecon along with metformin?
Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the query. There is absolutely no mention of fasting, pp glucose as well as hba1c%. Without knowing that no comments can be made. First and foremost is to achieve a strict glucose control. The product mentioned is not clinically proven as the claims are being made. So once you are in good control then you can add as an adjuvant. Thanks.

Hba1c is bit higher than normal levels, you are pre diabetic. Diet- have fatty fish like salmon, sardines, herring, anchovies and mackerel . Cinnamon, fresh fruits, leafy green vegetables, chia seeds, eggs,low-fat dairy products, whole grains, turmeric ,cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios,walnuts, broccoli, apple cider vinegar, eat fish, poultry, and lean meat instead of fatty red meat or processed meat. Flaxseed, garlic ,strawberries avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Sugary beverages are the worst drink choice for someone with diabetes. Trans fats. White bread, pasta and rice. Fruit-flavored yogurt sweetened breakfast cereals flavored coffee drinks honey, agave nectar and maple syrup. Dried fruit.

My mother [64 years, diabetic] gets tired very quickly and starts breathing fasts, when she walks even 100 meters. Her cbc report showed low hemoglobin [8.6 g/dl] and low rbc count [3.68 mill/mm3]. Currently, she is taking metformin and atenolol. Can iron supplements solve her problem. If yes, which iron supplements are recommended?
