If you remember before 1 month My BG level was 115/180.
As per doc's Advice I have been on strict diet control and doing walking regularly.
Thanks for All suggestions/ advices. it helped me lot

Now I have something to share with you.

Yesterday i have checked by BG level in lab, F -101 & PP -104, Hb1AC 5.6 .Doctor asked to continue with strict diet .

I have lost 2 kgs weight, but Doc says it doesnt matter much.

I need some more guidance. whenever i am checking pp values in home with Gluco meter it is showing 155,123, at times 177. but doctor says Lab method is more reliable. What is your opinion.

As Doc said no requirement for medicine at present conditions, i need some advice.I heard some medicine is available in HOMEOPATHY, AYURVEDA. which one is prefered.

Please help if anyone is taking these medicene.



Regards,

Diabetes is insidious, damage to our body's happens slowly and is cumulative. By the time we see the start of complications they are well on the way and takes Little more to to have full blown problems.

IE. it may take years to develop neropathy but once we have an incling of the problem it's pretty tuff to prevent it from progressing. I'm not saying you cant prevent it from worsaning just that the buffer is gone.

Now, science is starting to boleve any time a persons BGL is over 140 they are taking a step towards complications. True its a long road to get there, but it is one step at a time that will get you there.

So (I have recently developing neropathy in my feet, even with a A1C of under 7.0 for 10 years) I think that a BGL of 180 is to high. you want to live a long time without complications. That is lots of time to take accidental steps toward complications, you dont need to add to the journey by regularly having BGL over 140.

The lab A1C is the average BGL, you can (as your readings show) have high BGL and still have a good A1C.

Thanks for your reply.

Please let me clarify..
Whether I should start Medicene like Metformin e.t.c., now onwards irrespective of BG Levels ( I understand since i have diagonised once 180, Metabolism disorder happened and this cannot be normalised)
Or i should continue Diet control..
Still I see my PP BG levels often crosses 150/160 when i check at home with glucometer...

But Doctor says to follow lab result not to bother about Gluco meter results and told me that he can not advice medicene with this BGL levels.

Please advice what to do now at this stage medicene or deit control..

I think it's very difficult when your doctor is saying one thing and people WITH diabetes are saying another. I'm afraid I don't put 100% trust with the doctors anymore. I think you will get a lot of answers from this website. And if it's possible, I would even suggest you see another doctor and get a second opinion. I agree with diabetes86 that every second counts to keep us from the damage that occurs with any sugar in our blood over the norm. It was described to me as like "shards of glass" in our veins.

That is really hard to say. Some people are able to control their blood glucose by diet and exercise alone. Others need some help from the time they are diagnosed and as time goes by they may need to add other medications to help keep their blood glucose under control. It is all about keeping your blood glucose within acceptable target ranges. You can sit down with your doctor and come up with your own personal target ranges. Ask all of the questions that you want, we are here to help each other. I hope you have time to visit the forum often and take care.
