Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There is no mention about blood glucose levels, so no idea whether diabetes is well controlled or not with 0.5 mg Glimepiride, When treatment is adequate fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Usual precautions are: Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida and colas. Refrain from alcohol & smoking. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day and maintain normal weight. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.
