  • Type 1 diabetics need insulin because their pancreas has stopped producing it. Type 2 diabetics have inefficient insulin capabilities. What is MOST ESSENTIAL IS THAT YOU CONTROL YOUR CARBOHYDRATE INTAKE. Keep carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

    Eat low GI carbs glycemicindex.com/

    Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods

  • I may be wrong but I think that your efforts to control you sugar levels are not appropriate.The tablets must have been prescribed by a doctor and if you take the medicine as prescribed,there can not be such fluctuations.If the sugar level is not controlled even after medication,then you have to approach the doctor to change the medication or dosages.Where doer the insulin come into the picture?You have to review your medication thoroughly with your doctor.Also,medication alone will not control the sugar level.You should also practice strict diet control,regular and adequate exercise and relaxation techniques like music,yoga,pranayama or meditation. Multi- pronged approach is a must because your fasting level is alarmingly high.

  • Piopod 30 mf contains two drug combinations viz., Pioglitazone and Metformin.

    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.

    Blisto 4 mf contains two drug combinations viz., glimepiride and metformin

    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 oral hypoglycemic agents (diabetic pills) are effective only if the patient controls the blood sugar with diabetic diet, regular aerobic exercise, weight control, avoidance of alcohol, smoking reduction and careful monitoring of blood glucose. The pancreas of a normal adult contains approximately 200 units of insulin and the average daily secretion in healthy individuals ranges from 30 to 50 units. When you become older, secretion of insulin may become less and less. Hence the anti-diabetic pills may become ineffective as in the case of type 1 diabetic patients. You have to adopt insulin therapy during the later stages of type 2 diabetes.

  • you may have to take insulin along with tablets as prescribed by your doctor..Regarding tablets you have reached the peak. Dont worry, things will be under control.You have to go for adequate exercises & food control.Never retain this high level of sugar for long !!!

  • I think you are confused between Type 1 & 2. Type 1 is what require insulin injection compulsorily.


    The text below is a "COPY&PASTE STUFF" from my previous replies to some others.




    Please read MY REPLIES part 1, 2 & 3 to question AT diabetesindia.healthunlocke...

    Diabetes is a fundamental disorder. It is comparable with low voltage in an electric circuit. In both cases all connected subsystems will under-perform and will fail in due course. It will affect SEX life also, if diab is not contained. Diab impairs the glucose (SUGAR) & oxygen supply to ALL CELLS of the patient. You cannot compensate the resultant weakness with liquor, food or medicines.

    A DIABETES PATIENT (also known as A DIABETIC) need NOT starve. PROPER or APPROPRIATE food can be eaten EVEN FULL STOMACH THRICE DAILY! Try to understand diabetes & conquer it.

    While following the Long-wheat diet explained in the article referred below, non-vegetarians can have MEAT/FISH/EGG in moderate quantities as side-dishes/curries.

    I was diabetic from 2006; but NOT diabetic from 2009. I studied Diabetes thoroughly, because it was to solve MY problem.

    Do you want to see my experience and blood sugar history from 2006 to 2013? Those are reported at: appropedia.org/Diabetes_mel... If you want only MODUS OPERANDI, GO TO appropedia.org/Diabetes_mel...
