Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. SInce you are having diabetes, first and foremost is to initiate appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Then one can look at what kind of diet can be advised. To give a diet plan I need following details: fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, extent of daily exercise being done, present dietary pattern, medication with dosage, lipid profile and BP readings. So please come back with all the necessary details, then I will be able to guide. In the mean while, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida, colas and alcohol Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Thanks.

It is usual to have involvement of kidneys after such a long duration of diabetes. Do not be disheartened. Consult a Nephrologist.

Check your Hba1c levels in blood. That will tell us if you really have diabetes. If it's normal just stop sweets and start brisk walk. It's abnormal you have to consult doctor for treatment.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Both Vildagliptin and metformin remain over 8 to 10 hours in the blood and tisues. Hence their action continues even during the post lunch period. Vildagliptin will produce its effect as well as metformin also. Thus glucose rise does get controlled with twice a day dosage. Thanks.

My father is suffering from lv systolic dysfunction with lved =20% and he is also diabetic patient since 17 years and endocrinologist has recommended insulin injections for him as his hb1ac is 12.5 but my father body is not absorbing insulin as there is no decrease in his sugar levels as even after taking insulin injections his sugar level remains between 270 to 330. The insulin injections prescribed by doctor are lantus 12 units at night after dinner and lispro 10 units each 3 times a day. So I want to know that is not there any oral medicine through which my father sugar can be controlled considering his heart disease as there is no effect of insulin on his body.

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Mr. lybrate-user Shamal, Thanks for the query. When a person gets diabetes, at that time almost 50 % of his Beta cells are non functional. Further, because of continued high blood glucose levels (above normal) beta cells are further damaged. Because of this majority of T2 DM patients after many years of having diabetes will need insulin along with oral drugs. But not that every one will require. Thanks.

No it is not true .There are other things which will do that. Diabetes is a dietary disease which can be prevented and completely reversed with diet and lifestyle changes do not believe in ads posted by drs, tv and internet they are all mostly fake interested in your money and not your health want to know how to prevent diabetes even if you r parents are diabetic take a consult from me. I am a lifestyle and wellness consultant based abroad .None of them are available in India that is the reason we have more diabetics in India because drs do not know nutrition because they were not taught in their medical college and if you do not know nutrition you will only medicate people and not educate people eat healthy only home cooked food .No eating from outside unless it is an emergency do not eat new generation wheat chappathi .It will make you diabetic so want to know more take a consult and avoid all the lifestyle diseases naturally without medicines get educated and not medicated.
