Damage to vital organs?

Damage to vital organs?

For the past year, my fasting sugar had been 140, which I believe is not critical for my vital organs. But a month ago, despite no apparent lifestyle change, my fasting sugar spiked at 180, up to 200+ if I had a late meal.

Besides, from 250 maximum in the last year, my PP has soared to 350, and even once above 400.

My question is this: if such levels were to continue, would my vital organs be affected? How quickly, and to what extent?

Any informed reply appreciated.

  • It's hard to comment without knowing what your diet consists of.

    Having said that it sounds like you are on a high carbohydrate lifestyle with PP blood sugars spiking so high.

    I feel sure a low carbohydrate, high fat change would benefit you greatly.

  • With these high BS levels, definitely your organs will be affected. To avoid any damage to organs BS levels should be near nondiabetic range. FBS < 90, PPBS spike < 140 and at 2 hr. < 120.

  • Anytime your sugar levels go beyond 140, cellular damage starts.

  • Thanks for the answers given. How quickly and to what extent, were my real question however, although not every doctor may be able to answer this.

    Thanks agin

  • An elaborate scientific study is necessary to answer these questions in precise terms. Any how the extent will be 100% in due course, for sure - if not checked in time. From the numbers you gave, it appears that the process must be already initiated & in progress now. HbA1c, Serum Insulin and parameters related to the vital organs can throw more light.

  • Many thanks again, I wanted to do the retinopathy test, and so will do now without delay. Other organs have been checked four months back and showing completely normal conditions.

    Also, since my original post, blood levels have come down a bit. My only carb intake is bread, once-a-week pasta and rice, and occasional chocolate. 2000mg metformin/day, plus powdered neem, karela, and moringa.

  • Check your urine everyday. If there is no sugar, albumin or protein in your urine, all your vital organs will be safe.

    Eat small amounts of food, many times in a day.

    Reduce carbohydrate diet.

    Don't eat food after 7:00 pm.

    Brisk walking for 30 minutes daily.

    Fasting blood sugar should be less than 100 mg/dL.

    Post-prandial blood sugar (2 hours after consuming food) should be less than 140 mg/dL

    Avoid fried foods.

    Undergo HbA1c test.

    Purchase books on diabetes mellitus and study well.

    Visit <www.youtube.com> and search for diabetes mellitus.
