Hello. It is very important for you to take care of your health. As diabetes can harm heart as well as kidneys and other organs. But. In your case reports are good and looks like sitagliptin works well for you. Weight control. Less carbs. More proteins. No soft drinks. No beer. That will help. Never to smoke and to take less oily food. Feel free to consult me if you need on this.

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.

Periods are not regular. Periods usually varies between 28 to 35 days if periods are coming after more than 35 days then you should go for private consultation from me where I will tell you medicines with no side effects. For your mother, get t3, t4 and tsh levels done. Only after that we can start treatment.
