hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

Its quite surprising that with a report of 97/193 some one has prescribed Diabetic medicines for you. Kindly repeat all your tests again from a different lab. Take your reports to a different doctor. Diabetes medicines should not be taken in this manner. They can create problems in case your body doesn't need them. Better to be sure.

I am 39 years old from last 2 months I came to know that I have a sugar. Yesterday I check it was too. Pls advice me....
Hello, I will advice you this medicine: Stamonium 30C 1 dose now and then start taking Cosmos 30C three times in a day for 1 week. Then again check your blood sugar status. It should get reduced. And the addiction for corex syrup should also get reduced. As you are at the entry point of getting diabetes, I want you to be saved from life long Anti-diabetics (Tablets). So you take that medicine and please report to me after 1 week. Your diabetes should be under control by 3 months treatment. And start walking in morning daily for at least 15-20 mins before 8 AM. Take care. :)

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Blood sugars keep fluctuating from time to time due to many factors however with the help of your doctor you will have to keep it within possibly normal range as fixed by your doctor - normally 100-126 fasting and 126- 140 2 hours after principal morning meal. And perodic hba1c - 6.5 to control fluctuations buying a glucometer for self monitoring is ideal. It is better that you keep a diary and record sugar levlel 2 - 5 times, 1. Fasting, 2. Post breakfast 3. Before dinner one one day 2 hours after lunch and after dinner on some other day as advised by your doctor depending on control hba1c once in 3-6 months as advised take these reports to your doctor regularly for some adjustments or modifications of your daily routine, food intake timings and medications etc. Make it a habit you will gain more and more knowledge of diabetes and control this will avoid possible long term complications or at least postpone them so you remain healthy and fit.
