Does Weight loss really helps in reversing Pre-diabetes?

Hello Everyone,

Inspite of loosing 24 kgs my blood sugar has incerased instead of decreasing.

I had another test today in LAL PATH LAB .

in which

Fasting BS 104mg/dl

PP BS 117mg/dl

HbA1c is 5.4...

3months before same lab gave me reults as follows:

Fasting 98mg/dl

PP 117mg/dl

HbA1c is 5.4

I am still Overweight by 2.8 kgs , Previously was obese BMI 32.6 at the time of 1st check up, Now BMI around 26.

Height 5.7 Feet

Weight 75kg

Age 27yrs

A's per BMI calculator my ideal weight is between 53.5 to 72.2 kgs..

SUBURBAN DIAGNOSTICS LAB RESULTS ..

3 months Back

Fasting 97mg/dl

PP 107mg/dl

HbA1c 5.7

On 14/07/2017

Fasting 106mg/dl

PP 85.6mg/dl

HbA1c 5.6

I am feeling confused .. Loosing weight ,Changing Diet and exercise also not helping to lower blood sugar instead it is increasing.

Looking for best advise from your experiences.

Thank you.

Amitnikam,

Your body needs time to get use to the new diet and exercise routine you've set up for yourself. How long have you been dieting/exercising? Did your doctor suggest what types of exercises to do each day/every other day?

No need to be confused.You are within safe limits.Weight loss in a healthy way is good in it's own way and you can expect good results in medium and long term diabetes management.Sugar level readings may be read to establish trends and fine tuning your diet,medicines and exercise. They need not necessarily conform to our expectations as long as they within range.

Fasting blood sugar should not exceed 100 mg/dL.

Postprandial blood sugar should not exceed 140 mg/dL.

HbA1c: Normal (No diabetes) less than 5.7%.

As the above conditions are satisfied in your case, there is nothing to worry about Type 2 diabetes.
