Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Madam looking at the weight and height of your husband, diabetes is the consequence of his being morbidly obese. With a BMI of almost 41 kgs/Sq met (normal < 23 kgs/Sq meter), he has an excess of almost 80 kgs. Therefore, even if he reduces just about 5 to 8% of his weight, he will be able to control blood glucose more effectively. As regards the drugs for treating diabetes according to our knowledge, only modern medicine has specific drugs to reduce blood glucose. Other practices claim a lot without any clinical evidence. Therefore, my suggestion is take appropriate modern drugs. Plus exercise, weight control and diet restriction are also equally important. In this communication, we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drug prescriptions are allowed. So my suggestion is please come in a private conversation (paid consultation), with following details: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c5, diet pattern, extent of daily exercise, BP readings and lipid profile. Then I will be able to guide specifically. Or else please contact a local diabetologist and initiate treatment urgently. However, weight reduction is very important. Thanks.
