Thanks for query. There is no medication for low blood sugar medication. First you start to check your fasting blood sugar and 2 hr after major meal. Alternate day and show to us. If your fasting blood sugar is less than 100 and post meal is less than 140 than start medication and take care of diet and exercise. Check blood sugar regularly.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Usually when diabetes is diagnosed it has to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet, regular exercise and maintaining normal body weight. Therefore, a patient of diabetes is asked to adapt a healthy lifestyle. Treatment is invariably for life. In pre-diabetes adapting a modified lifestyle helps to prevent progression to diabetes or one can totally prevent it. Coming to your question of reversing diabetes, it is possible if a person adapts a very strict control of diet, weight control and regular exercise , but chances are very slim. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the details. I have seen the details given. Your blood glucose levels both fasting and PP are really quite good. There is no reason to reduce those any further. I am sure you have checked HbA1c%, that should be < 7%. Only one aspect is that at 69 years with 165 cms height, your ideal body weight should be about 58.5% (65 X 0.9 = 58.5 kgs). Your present BMI(Body Mass Index) is 25.34 kgs/Sq meter(Normal < 23kgs/Sq meter up to 60 years.). Hence a few kg reduction will definitely benefit. However, if you are healthy enough, no need to worry. Take care. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Both Diane35 & Spironolactone are used in the treatment of PCOD to reduce the symptoms. Prolactin also is reduced because of Spironolactone. Please mention the prolactin levels, because if those are abnormally high, some additional drug maybe needed. Thanks .

Yes, pistachios marginally help in control of blood sugar. But, this is food supplement and not a medicine.

Diabetes - Simple Yet Most Effective Lifestyle Changes To Manage It Well!

Diabetes - Simple Yet Most Effective Lifestyle Changes To Manage It Well!

Keeping the blood sugar at the recommended level can be a challenging task at times. While timely medication is a key prerequisite for controlling diabetes, lifestyle changes plays an important role in keeping the blood sugar under control.

Here is a list of simple yet effective ways of managing diabetes:

  1. Food
    • Portion size and carbohydrate count: Carbohydrates are the single most important food element that impacts the level of blood sugar in body. People taking insulin shots should ensure that the portion size of carbohydrates does not exceed the recommended level. Maintaining a diary to keep a check on the carbohydrate count can help in this case.
    • Balanced diet: For people suffering from diabetes, it is necessary to have a good mix of fruits, vegetables, fat, starch and protein in each meal. Carbohydrates should be consumed in the form of fruits and whole grains. A doctor advice in this matter can be of great help.
    • Avoid sweetened beverages: Sweetened beverages with high sucroseand fructose content have high-calorie content that can directly impact the blood-sugar level. Refraining from these sweetened drinks is a must for diabetes patients.
  2. Exercise
    • Make an exercise plan: Exercising for half hour on a daily basis is highly beneficial for diabetes patients. It makes sense to consult a doctor about the type of exercise that can be done regularly. The right mix of aerobic, cardio and muscle exercise should do the trick.
    • Stay hydrated: Staying hydrated is very important during exercise. Dehydration can bring down the blood-sugar level drastically.
    • Be prepared: Carrying a small dose of glucose or a snack can come in handy. In case the blood-sugar level drops to an alarming level while exercising, the glucose will ensure that it brings it back to normal quickly.
  3. Alcohol
    • Follow the doctor’s instruction: Alcohol is known to cause a lot of complications for diabetic patients. For people whose diabetes is under control, make sure that the doctor gives his go ahead for alcohol consumption.
    • Drink carefully: If you get a doctors nod to drink make sure that dry wines and light beer are consumed. These drinks tend to have lesser calories and carbohydrates. Their impact on the blood-sugar level, therefore, becomes minimal.
  4. Stress
    • Pattern: Stress greatly increases the blood-sugar level. While it is difficult to be stress-free, try to look for a pattern by checking the blood-sugar level after prolonged stress. This will help to identify a pattern which can then be addressed with methods such as yoga, hobby practicing, laughter therapy, etc.
    • Get help: Stress management is not an easy task. If stress cannot be controlled with a conventional approached, it makes sense to get professional help to reduce stress.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Since your glucose is quite well controlled and HbA1c% is 5.9 %, I do not see the reason for changing the treatment. In fact if diet is controlled by reducing a bit of carb intake, you will be able to achieve still better control. Even increasing physical activity would be more beneficial than adding any further drug. Tanks.
