Mr. lybrate-user Sud, Thanks for the query. Since you are on oral anti-diabetic drugs, the condition is Type 2 Diabetes. In T1 patient is only on Insulin injections. No oral drugs work in that. Please tell me what is the query? Ideally in a well controlled diabetes fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg and HbA1c% < 7. I hope you are maintaining your parameters in that range. Thanks.
Hi sir, Thanks for your query. Your question is wrong. You are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. Medicine can be suggested only after we know the blood sugar levels, HbA1c & some other tests. Thanks.
