Hello .tell me about his current medicines. I suggest you to start homeopathic treatment for him along with allopathic medicines for fast recovery. Avoid rice. Give priority to foods with a low glycaemic index (e.g. Vegetables, whole wheat pasta/noodles). Avoid fried foods. Limit consumption of foods high in sugar, carbohydrates and fat. Choose lean proteins (eg. Fish, meat, eggs, milk, beans after fully cooked). Eat green, leafy vegetables eat fruits in two or three servings. You can consult me online for best homeopathic treatment. No side effects.

lybrate-user, thanks for the query. The glucose values mentioned are too high, which means current therapy is inadequate. Therefore we will have to look at all the aspects of the treatment. Which includes dietary habit, caloric intake, weight, height and extent of daily exercise, lipid profile, bp readings plus serum creatinine and urea and hba1c%. I am sure you must be aware that in a well controlled diabetes patient fbg should be < 100 mgor closer to 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 170 mg & hba1c% <6.5 % at your age and for people over 60 years <7%. Therefore, with given information I will not be able advise or give any suggestions. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be either recommended or prescribed. For that you need to come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the above mentioned details, then I will be able to do the needful. Or else please consult your local physician and get the treatment upgraded. I am sure you are aware how important so please take necessary action. Thanks. It is to have a well controlled blood glucose, mainly to remain fit and prevent long term complications associated with diabetes affecting all vital organs and systems.

Along with medicines follow diabetes diet which simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes. A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that's naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables and whole grains. U can take (moderate amount) grapes. Apples. Berries. Citrus fruits. Papaya. U should avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Sugary beverages are the worst drink choice for someone with diabetes. Trans fats sugar, cake, pastries mithai/sweets chocolate fruits like mango, litchi etc. White bread, pasta fruit-flavored yogurt. Sweetened breakfast cereals. Flavored coffee drinks. Honey 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or soaked almonds or any seasonal fruit. No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 3. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 4. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 5. Maintain active life style 6. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods 7.take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water. 9.curd is good for u. Exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gymming, walking etc. Do suryanamaskar for good health regularly for more details you can consult me.

Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the details mentioned. Your current glucose levels and hba1c% seem to be fairly well controlled. Still if pp is glucose is reduced towards 150 mg & hba1c% < 6.5%, that will be much better. For that there is no need to change the drugs. You can continue with metformin 500 mg & jalra; but it is necessary to give a closer look at the dietary intake, weight, height and extent of daily exercise. Because in diabetes diet and exercise with weight control are more important than the drus themselves. Since there is no information on those aspects, it is difficult to comment any further. Thanks.

Hello, thanks for the query. As far as metformin is concerned it is mainly used for treating diabetes in both men and women. Plus it is used in treating pcod (poly cystic ovarian disease) in women. But there are no confirmed indications for use in elderly other than for diabetes. Thanks.
