Please get HbA1c done. No harm taking Vit supplements . Please be careful ,you don't take Vit c overdose.

Vitamin C doesn't have an over dose. It can leave the body throughout the day, patliputra.

Normally vit c is harmless but mega doses can cause :- diarrhoea ,nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps,insomnia kidney stones etc.


I do take vitamin C 1000 a day at least. Sometimes more. Taking it 500 mg at a time is what the body can process. C is water soluble and the body simply discards what it doesn't use. D3, Omega 3s and Beta carotene are a few other basics I would look into as well.

Do your HBA1C very quickly please.otherwise you will not understand where you stand.



You can take but get your reports done.

Go for diet management. Diabetes is a sleeping lion. It strikes suddenly and heavily. Take care.

Have your reports done as everyone has said. Instead of medicines, go for a walk, change your food habits and quality of food you eat; you might not need anything else. Vit tablets are after all not good at all. I am reducing my dosage and would like to leave medicines. Once in a trap of medicines you will always be in the trap. So judge well before you start medicines.

You are absolutely right. Only way to reverse diabetes low carb high fat organic diet. With intermittent fasting. No other method works.

Pharmaceutical is a life trap. It will kill you or make you fat and useless.....

Walking is good, but fasting is better. Walking can improve blood flow which is good for feet and bones

But fasting helps melt intra abdominal fat on the liver and pancreas which cause insulin intolerance.

Bari a trick surgery is also a method but an extreme step. Yet better than any medication.

I am a doctor with diabetes, managing three years without medication. I took medication for four wretched years of my life. Became fat and useless.

Fasting blood sugar (FBS) must be less than 100 mg/dL and post-prandial blood sugar (PPBS) (2 hours after consuming food) should be less than 140 mg/dL. Your blood sugar level is above normal.

You should undergo various tests once in 6 months or once in a year.

A: HbA1c. HbA1c is a lab test that shows the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the previous 3 months. It shows

how well you are controlling your diabetes.

B: Control your high Blood pressure, if any. Normal blood pressure- <120/80 mmHg.

C: Control your blood Cholesterol: Normal cholesterol < 200 mg/dL. LDL <100 mg/dL HDL > 40 mg/dL Triglyceride < 150 mg/dL.

D: Diabetic education.Dental check-up should be done in every 6 months.

E: Eye examination for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and cataract.

F: Foot examination

G: Glucose monitoring. Fasting or postprandial blood sugar may be checked daily and avoid foods that elevates blood sugar.

H: Health maintenance immunization against influenza and pneumococcal pneumonia.

I: Indications for specialty care. Heart, kidney, eye should be checked periodically by concerned specialists.
