my blood sugar level has come down drastically in last two months, it has remained in the range of 100 to 126 even without medicine,


I had a fasting sugar level of 250 about 3 months back , I took medicine for just one month it drastically came down to between 100 to 110, then I stopped taking medicine for a week however the blood sugar level did not increase now I have not taken medicine for about 2 months however my blood sugar fasting level is still ranging between 110 to 126, the only thing that I have started doing is that , now I have stopped taking lift while going to office, my office on the 5th floor and I take stairs to go to my office at least once a day.

I am still not sure, how could my blood sugar come down to drastically even though I am now taking normal diet

Please keep monitoring at home and do not relax.Some times diabetes acts mysteriously.Once you are a diabetic,you should always be on guard.

Thanks, I do check my diabetes frequently once a week , but I have only checked fasting sugar level, I am not sure about my sugar level two hours after a meal. just wanted to know if just checking fasting sugar level on regular basis suffice or should I also check post pardinal sugar level as well

Fasting sugar level is important but more important is post prondial level because then only you can know whether your body is able to handle the food you have eaten and maintain proper levels.Also,you have to undergo HBA1c test to know the average sugar level for the past three months.If the reading comes between 6 and 7 you are in safe limit.Between 7 and 8 you are a diabetic and need to exercise caution and also receive medical condition.Above 8 means you are a seriously diabetic.

Not only checking post prondial level but also during the course of the day,that is 2 hours after breakfast,lunch and dinner,just before lunch and dinner will be very useful.Each week you can test at alternate timings and it will show you when the sugar levels are peaking.

Undergo HbA1c test once in every four months.


My HbAC1 was 10.8 on 15/03/2013,

Glucose Post Prandial Plasma was 198, Glucose fasting Plasma 147

Mean Plasma Glucose 266.1

Lipid Profile was with in Biological reference range

there was Trace of Glucose and Ketones in Urine

Blood Pressure was also normal as per Doctor


Glyciphage P15 1 tablet in morning and 1 tablet in the evening

Amaryl once a day

I lost around 8 to 10 kg when I checked my weight march, I have regained the weight now, My weight is 95kg , height 5feet and 51/2 inches

Your body mass index is 34.2 and you are obese. Your normal weight should be in between 118–153 pounds (54 to 70 kg). A weight-control strategy might include:--

* Choosing low-fat, low-calorie foods

* Eating smaller portions

* Drinking water instead of sugary drinks

* Being physically active

Your HbA1c level should be lowered to 6.5% in order to prevent diabetic complications.

Your fasting blood sugar is 147 mg/dL. It has to be lowered to <100 mg/dL.

* Adopt diabetic diet.

* Do not consume food after 6:00 pm.

Your post-prandial blood sugar is 198 mg/dL. It has to be lowered to <140 mg/dL.

* If you walk briskly for 30 minutes shortly after consuming food, blood sugar will fall to the normal level.

Glyciphage P15 contains pioglitazone 15 mg, Metformin Hydrochloride in sustained release 500 mg.

Pioglitazone is used with a diet and exercise program and sometimes with other medications, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Pioglitazone is in a class of medications called thiazolidinediones. It works by increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin, a natural substance that helps control blood sugar levels.

Metformin is used alone or with other medications, including insulin, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Metformin is in a class of drugs called biguanides. Metformin helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood.

Amaryl (brand name) contains glimepiride (generic name).

Glimepiride is used along with diet and exercise, and sometimes with other medications, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Glimepiride lowers blood sugar by causing the pancreas to produce insulin (a natural substance that is needed to break down sugar in the body) and helping the body use insulin efficiently. This medication will only help lower blood sugar in people whose bodies produce insulin naturally.


The information which I have shared dates back to 15/03/2013 and after one,week of medicine prescribed by the physician, as of now I have maintained a sugar level in the range of 100 to 126 and that too without medicine for about last one and a half months, I check my sugar in morning at 6:30 am and also before meal at around 9:30 PM, the sugar level have remained in the range of 100 to 126,

should I continue to take the medicine which was prescribed by the physician or can I do without medicine, with some exercise and diet control

If you stop anti-diabetic medications, Your blood sugar levels will shoot up. Never stop oral hypoglycemic agents (diabetic pills) without the consent of your doctor. However, if you feel hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), you may reduce the strength of the dosage of drugs in consultation with your doctor.

Post-prandial blood sugar level is more important than fasting blood sugar level. Post-prandial blood sugar level must be less than 140 mg/dL.

thanks for the telephonic talk; my mailer id: pls write back in detail, thanks in advance

tejkumar in reply to tejkumar

waiting for your reply to my mailer id:


There are many factors that impact blood sugar levels. What you have done is burning more calories. This will definitely help. But be cautious. HBA1C reading once in 3 months should give proper indication.

If possible you can take multiple readings for a day. Taking glucometer reading before and after every meal. This will help identify the trend and adjust your meal and exercise accordingly.


Fasting reading of 110 to 126 is surely not normal. Better to consult your doctor and continue taking some medicine on his advice.

It happens in newly detected diabetes. You must be having diabetes because of gluco-toxicity. Now you can be off medicines but every 3 months get your HbA1C done if it is more than 6.5 you have to start again the medicine i.e. Metformin. Concentrate of life style modification.
