Recently my dad was diagnosed with diabetes with glucose level 262 mg/ dl. What are possible remedies.
1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.

I frequently drink water and do urine can it be the symptoms of diabetes and should I do to avoid diabetes if so.
You don't need to worry about the diabetes unless n untill you get it confirmed. For that get an hba1c report done which will confirm your sugar status and will let you know whether you are in diabetic, pre-diabetic or non-diabetic range. You may get back once the report is done and do let me know if you have any other symptoms apart from frequency of urine and thirst. Thanks.

Your age is mentioned as 14 yrs and 5 months. Is it correct? since when you have diabetes? are on insulin injection if so which is it and the dosage? there are mainly two types of diabetes t1 where only insulin injections have to be given and this usually occurs in very young age. Can occur at alittle older age but rare. In this condition beta cells are not producing any insulin. T2 is seen commonly and occurs at a later age. In this sugar can be controlled by oral anti diabetics and in some insulin may be needed. Since you are so young, please tell me if insulin assay has been done meaning have checked c-peptide level in your blood? that will tell if any insulin is produced at all. Also tell me your weight and height. Then I will be able to guide.

Diet plays a major role to treatment of diabetes. Includes- low foods will help you to control your diabetes. Use 6 small meal pattern instead of 3 major meal. Your bmi is low. So follow a high fibre diabetic diet according to your blood sugar level with well balanced ratio with calories, carb, proetin & fat.
