Fasting 210 and PP 360


I would like to thank "HealthUnlocked" for providing such a great platform. I am new to this site... My fasting sugar is 210 and PP 360, I ate upma and dosa this morning with tea without sugar.

I have been taking metformin 1000 with glimy 1 for 2 years but not result. in addition to these I have started a homeopathic medicine R40 recently.

But I don't do much of physical activities.

could you please guide me the best way to bring my sugar level down...

Kindly Help

Fasting blood sugar should be less than 100 mg/dL. PPBS (2 hours after taking food) should be less than 140 mg/dL.

Adopt low carbohydrate diet. You can eat only 2 dosas. You should not eat both uppuma + dosa. Eat less food more times in a day. Don't take food after 7:00 pm.

Engage in brisk walking daily for about 30 minutes.

Please note that anti-glycemic medications alone can't control your blood sugar. It should be controlled by diet and exercise.

Over time, people who have diabetes and high blood sugar can develop serious or life-threatening complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney problems, nerve damage, and eye problems.

Taking medication(s), making lifestyle changes (e.g., diet, exercise, quitting smoking), and regularly checking your blood sugar may help to manage your diabetes and improve your health. This

therapy may also decrease your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or other diabetes-related complications such as kidney failure, nerve damage (numb, cold legs or feet; decreased sexual ability in men and women), eye problems, including changes or loss of vision, or gum disease. Your doctor and other healthcare providers will talk to you about the best way to manage your diabetes.

Check your FBS or PPBS daily and avoid foods that cause hyperglycemia.

Undergo HbA1c test.



You must be south Indian.You to totally reconfigure your diet.From a rice based diet you have to move on to fiber rich foods like vegetables,greens,mixed sprouts etc.Keep rice to the minimum possible.Study about glycemic index and glycemic load.You can then figure out what is best for you.

Reduce quantity of food eaten each time, but eat more frequently. Give a gap of 2 hours between dinner and going to sleep. Try substituting rice for lunch and dinner, with broken wheat (Samba or long wheat), with about 25% quantity made up of boiled grated or chopped cauliflower. Continue exercise and medication and monitoring of your sugar level.
