Diabetes India


I'm a 72 year old male Type 2 diabetic since last 2 years, having one drug each day, which contains Metformin-500 mg, Pioglitazne-15 mg & Glimepiride-1 mg.

My PPBS count for last one year remained 74 - 112, checked every month. The HbA1C reading remained around 5.7-5.8, checked every 4 months.

As per doctor's advice I'm also having Suclarose based artificial sweetener in my cup of tea/coffee, which I take frequently.

Apart from not taking direct sweets, I don't follow any diet chart meant for diabetics.

As such, should I reduce the dosage of the drug or continue with the same?

Please talk to your treating physician. You may need to reduce your drugs. Be watchful for hypoglycemia.


Thanks for your speedy response.
