I am doing daily exercise and taking chapatti at lunch and dinner. Now it is must to start taking medicine or can wait and retest and conform once again? please help me suggesting the proper way to follow. Will it be risky if I don' t star medicine immediately. If at all I should take this medicine then at what time I should take it?

Good to see that u r mentally strong enough to avoid medication nd start naturopathy. But my friend blood sugar monitoring is also a must if u r having increased sugar levels. So do daily exercise nd have a daily or alternate day sugar chk. If still increased levels then consult me
