My sugar level is 121 (fasting) and 176 after 2 Hrs of food intake

I tested my sugar level and it came,fasting:132 & after food:205. My doctor prescribed medicine after seeing the report. I restricted some food intake and tested myself after 2 days with sugar testing meter, it gave fasting:121 & after food:176. Now I want to know do I have to take medicine or can I lower my sugar level with strict diet combined with excercise

  • Adopt low carb.

    Add up some fats like ghee butter coconut oil

    Some proteins like eggs paneer and other non veg

    Lower down grains and stop root veggies

  • Are those blood sugar figures with or without medicine ? If no medicine started ,,then continue with your diet restriction combined with excercise. Give it a trial at least for a month.

  • I was at Fasting -211 and Post meal - 256 , with just diet and exercise brought down to 95-110 ( fasting ) and 120-130 ( post meal @2hrs ) in 40 days . Reduce Carb intake and excersie more .. you can also bring it down ..

  • Very good maintain the same. Are you taking any medicine?

  • NO .. Thrown out all the medicines after 4 days .. I am happy that I am controlling the entire metabolism of my body in a natural way with little life style change ..

    however along with just Hba1c...fasting insulin ; cholesterol..thyroid liver profile & liver scan will be useful.
