I am 75 years old. I have sugar level of 118 (fasting) and 180 post prandial. Of late I have been getting intermittent joint pains, especially in the right shoulder. Doctor says it could be due to diabetes and I should start taking diabetic drug. I want the second opinion. If I have to take drug, what drug and dosage?

Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the details mentioned. You have mentioned fasting & pp glucose levels, both show you are in a pre-diabetes state. It is better if hba1c% is also done. Diabetes is diagnosed when fbg is 126 mg/100 ml or above, or pp 200 mg and above & hba1c% 6.5% and above. As regards shoulder pain, in diabetes particularly if it is not well controlled there can be a conditions called "frozen shoulder" can develop. That will need proper glucose control, exercise and some times pain killers too. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

Glucometers are of very good and superior quality today. No need to recheck again via a lab. Just ensure you use a good brand like one touch or accu check. Preferably use a device which can store readings also.

As per my knowledge this is a synthetic steroidal preperation and corticosteroid effects is to cause hyperglycemia .and you are already diabetic so without a proper consultation with your physician don't take it.
