My wife is having high sugar level 160 fasting & 250 non fasting from last 1.5 year (during pregnancy) even after 1 year of delivery. She's taking istamet 500 daily one tablet from last 4 month as prescribed by Dr. Still sugar level is same 160/250. Please suggest what to do.

Diet control should be strict. Regular exercise is must. She needs to increase the dose. It can be increased to twice daily but before that discuss with your treating physician.

Try following a strict diabetic diet. Exercise regularly for atleast 30 mins. Stop any kinds of sugar and sugar products in your diet. Dose adjustment is required for better sugar control.
