Prediabetes is condition when your Hba1C is more than 5.7 but less than 6.4% .Normally you should not have weight loss in this condition but if you have you have to look for other medical conditions like, thyroid dysfunction, tuberculosis. You can drink small quantity of red wine once a week. Glucerna shake can be taken by prediabetic but if you already have weight loss then first diagnose the cause reason for same with help of doctors.

Post lunch less than 140 mg and hba1c less than 5.7 % rules out diabetes. Hba1c between 5.7 % and less than 6.4% confirms prediabetes and hba1cmore than 6.4 confirms diabetes. Low fat, low carbohydrate, high protein, high fiber diet with regular 45 minuets walking/exercise/sports activity may help preventing diabetes. Avoid direct sugar or jeggary in day to day diet.

Cold milk or butter milk or anta- acids may help in relieving acidity. But some times at the age of 50 it is essential to rule out cardiac pain with ecg and if doubt with stress test you may need proper bsf/pp/hba1c test to rule out diabetes. Some patients may require ogd scopy.

If you have blood sugars in the range of 350-500 then you should not leave insulin injections. In fact your insulin dosage or type of insulin needs to be changed. Some times oral diabetic drugs can also be added. Some times diet/exercise failure /stress/infection/ thyroid dysfunction in the body does not allow your sugars to come under control.

Fasting sugar more than 126 mg confirms you have diabetes. Most common causes anemia is nutritional deficiencies -iron, b12, folic acid group of vitamins supplements may help. In some group of patients internal bleeding from piles or chronic ulcers/ varices are cause of anemia some families have known to have genetic variants hemoglobinopathies /traits positive. If you get your anemia profile done then probably you can get clear picture of type of anemia and treatment required for the same. You should also get your post lunch sugar -so that you can control your diabetes with dietary changes initially.

Weight loss in diabetes usually signifies uncontrolled diabetes. He probably needs to change/or adjust his anti diabetic medicine dosages he may improve faster with short course of insulin therapy (if he is not taking). Some times associated illness like hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, hiv, cancer could also be responsible for weight loss. He may need investigation for same if no improvement in weight after diabetes control. He may improve faster if changes his diet to high protein, nutritionally rich diet if his all other reports are normal and he can improve to normal weight suitable for his height.

Endocrinologist,
Actually range dibaties.& its controlling medicine.
Fasting sugars more than 126mg% post lunch sugars more than 200mg% hba1c > 6.4% above biochemical parameters confirm actual diabetes. Always the first line of treatment is lifestyle modification but depending upon patient's complaints, duration of diabetes, current blood sugar values, kidney and heart function status I can decide which medicines/insulin injections will be most suitable, most useful to the patients.

If you have diabetes and your wife does not have diabetes or does not have family history of diabetes then there are 50% chance of your child developing type -2 diabetes at later stage in life. However if life style modification done in early stage 8years that is before your child becomes 18 years of age can cause genetic suppression or silencing of diabetic gene and scientific possibility that your child may never develop diabetes or pass diabetic genes to next generation.

I personally think that once you have chronic renal failure with rising azotemia it is safer and better to be on insulin therapy than oral anti diabetic drugs. Good treatment of urinary tract infection with kidney safe drugs and proper diabetes and hypertension control can help in reversing/reducing kidney failure to some extent.
