Hello, Thanks for the query.
Hba1c% 8.6 is high, showing poor control. Ideally it should be <7%. Secondly to reduce weight you will have to look closely at your diet and do those exercise which are permitted. If walking is allowed, please do it regularly. Because with a BMI
of 31.83 kgs /M2 (Normal < 23 kgs), you are already in grade 1 obesity
. Weight reduction it self will help in better glucose control. Thanks.
