Asked for male, 66 years old from Vadodara
I have diabetes type 2 for the last 14 years. My latest blood sugar reading is FBS 137 and PP2 216. HBA1c is around 8. I take a balanced diet without sugar. I also do 30 minutes of brisk walking and another 20 to 30 minutes of exercises daily. The medication taken by me is one tab Gemer 2 and one tab Pioglit 30mg during breakfast, one tab Gemer 2 during lunch and one tablet Tenglyn 20 before bedtime on a daily basis. I wish to know what further steps I need to take to reverse the diabetic condition. I also wish to know the changes if any required in the medication that I am at presently taking.

Hi lybrate-user your sugar levels are ok however it can still be improved. I advise to increase their exercise/medication to 40 minutes. Space the meals and consume lot of vegetables (like cabbage, cucumber, cauliflower etc) do regular meditation wish you good health

A positive test means HLA-B27 is present. It suggests a greater-than-average risk for developing or having certain autoimmune disorders. An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. An abnormal result may be caused by: ankylosing spondilylitis Arthritis related to crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis Psoriatic arthritis (arthritis associated with psoriasis) reactice arthritis or Reiter's syndrome Sacroiliitis (inflammation of the sacroiliac joint) uveitis If there are symptoms or signs of an autoimmune disease, a positive HLA-B27 test may confirm the diagnosis. However, HLA-B27 is normally found in a small number of Caucasians and does not always mean you have a disease. you can take tab. combiflaim sos.

I understand that there is some hesitation for medication. Try 1g cinnamon every day and 2 tsp methi along with breakfast and lunch. Take only salad at night no other food. Walk 45 min covering 4 km. Chances of your blood glucose levels is there.

Lybrate-user with the limited information provided it appears that your mother is getting corns which are an initial phase of diabetic complications. It will be advisable if you can tell her to soak her feet in luke warm water regularly, make sure the water is not very warm as diabetics usually loose temprature sensation in their feet. Meet a podiatrist/diabetic foot expert for better care of her feet. We expect her sugars are fairly in control. Any case for a good control of diabetes regular exercise, controlled diet and medication as advised is the key to treatment.
