Diabetes Questions

My mother is 52 years old, height 4'10" weight 56 kgs. She is very active throughout the day as she is a field supervisor. She walks nearly 1.5-2 km daily. Beneath all these she gets her sugar level to 110 before diet and 220 after diet. So is it diabetic? And how to control it?

Thanks for the query. Madam to achiev a strict glucose control one needs to take adequate dosage of various medications being taken includong Insulin. Plus there is need for taking restricted diet, that gives exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs) and regular exercise for over 1 hour and maintaining normal body weight. Looking at your height and weight with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30.30 kgs/Sq meter, you are already in grade 1 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be about 60 to 61 kgs. Which means there is an excess of 18 t0 20 kgs. This is the major hinderance for bringing down blood glucose to desired level. Plus there is need to give a closer look at your diet, medication and extent of daily exercise. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam your query is very general. There is no information about blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise. Unless that information is given, there is no way to understand the present situation. Hence, I am unable to comment. Usually when a person is in Pre-diabetic state, it is possible to reverse it and remain free from getting diabetes in future or delay it for a pretty long time. However, if one gets confirmed diabetes, then there a definite need for taking necessary treatment, plus dietary restriction and regular exercise for over 1 hour. But there is no possibility of totally stopping the drug treatment. It is better if you comeback with all the above mentioned details, then I will be able to give specific guidance. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Usually HbA1c % 6.5 is considered as diagnostic. So with 6.6%,it is confirmed diabetes. So treatment with drugs is needed. Thanks.

You can stop metformin if you are not comfortable with it but you have to increase the dose of insulin or other medicine under supervision of your doctor.
