It's low in calories and has a high dietary fiber content. Recently, a new benefit of including okra in your diet is being considered. Okra has been suggested to help manage blood sugar in cases of type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. But there are conflict of opinions among diabetic patients.

According to American Diabetic Association, dual drug therapy is to be adopted if HbA1c exceeds more than 9%. Undergo HbA1c test once in every 3 months,

Glisen Mf Tablet contains Glimepiride, and Metformin as active ingredients.

Glimepiride is used along with diet and exercise, and sometimes with other medications, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Glimepiride lowers blood sugar by causing the pancreas to produce insulin (a natural substance that is needed to break down sugar in the body) and helping the body use insulin efficiently. This medication will only help lower blood sugar in people whose bodies produce insulin naturally.

Metformin is used alone or with other medications, including insulin, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Metformin is in a class of drugs called biguanides. Metformin helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood.

During the initial period of diagnosis, a diabetic person can manage blood sugar by diet and exercise.

There is no magic substance. Yes things that can help but exercise is one of the best. Nothings free & easy. Keep carbs well down.
