My current sugar levels and others for suggestion

I am 169 cms heght, 77 Kgs weight. using medicine Ramster 2.5 for BP, Rosuvas and Ecosprin 75 for Cholesterol. Both are in good control. Recently I got all test done. here are the readings: LDL: 80, HDL: 46 Tryclycerides: 107. TSH: 5.9 (borderline).

My sugar levels are: Fasting: 125, PP: 156, HBA1c: 6.7. Fasting Urine sugar: nil, PP Urine sugar: 1(+). earlier all these values were normal only. I suspect high consumption of sweets during last 3 months (I did) and no exercise. earlier I used to consume very less quantity of sweets and 1 hour of walking daily. Do you think these are the reasons for the high sugar levels. I started walking of 1 hour now and reduced sweets etc., Can some doctors reply to my conditions and suggest and other provide suggestions based on experience.

Thanks in advance.

One more result forgot to mention. My D Vitamin level is very low. D3: 13.5


1. Exercise Regularly

2. Control Your Carb Intake

3. Increase Your Fiber Intake

4. Drink Water and Stay Hydrated

5. Implement Portion Control - Portion control helps regulate calorie intake and can lead to weight loss

6. Control Stress Levels

Good Luck

Thanks Madam for your suggestions. Do you think I can get to a level where I do not need to use medicines for this condition. 3 months ago my reading was HBA1C: 6.4, Fasting sugar: 94.



You have corrected your course appropriately.Continue for sometime and test once again.


Thank you sir. Do I need all the three tests FBS, PP and HBA1C done? or should I go for GTT.



There is no need to take all the tests in the lab frequently.You have to go for a quarterly review and get these tests done.You can make further adjustments based on those results.In the meantime,why not buy a glucometer and start monitoring at home also?


Thank you sir for your suggestion.


Welcome to the group, csrao67. Your conditions can indeed be better if you take appropriate steps. It seems to me that you are are not choosing the right food for yourself and indulging in excess carbs including sugar. I suggest the following:

1. Spend some time educating yourself about diabetes- it will go a long way in managing your conditions.

2. Buy a blood glucose meter and start monitoring your fasting and PPBS at home. That will give you an idea which food gives you maximum rise in blood sugar so that you can either eliminate them or reduce the portion.

3. You are overweight and you should aim to lose 10 kg gradually. This can be achieved by low carbohydrate diet which will limit your blood sugar rise also. Are you vegetarian or non-vegetarian?

4. May be you are aware of the following:

Carbohydrate raises our blood sugar maximum followed by protein and the rise in blood sugar due to fat is the lowest. Carbohydrate is not essential for the functioning of human body but they do provide essential vitamins and minerals and therefore they should be included in our diet.

Based on the above, it makes sense to use diet which is low in carbohydrate, moderate in protein and rest healthy fat. If you choose your diet based on above logic, it will promote weight loss and keep your blood sugar low.

If you follow low carbs diet, you have to keep a watch on blood sugar because you may have to reduce the doses of medicines if you are taking,in order to avoid very low blood sugar.


Thank you for your detailed reply. I am going to have a consultation with Dietitian to create a plan for my food items.


Your Body Mass Index is 26.96 and you have overweight. BMI is "Body Mass Index". It tells you whether your body weight is appropriate for your height.

In Indians it is advisable that the BMI be not more than 22.9

Reduce your body weight. A weight-control strategy might include:--

Choosing low-fat, low-calorie foods

Eating smaller portions

Drinking water instead of sugary drinks

Being physically active

Ramipril (generic name) Ramster (brand name) is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients at risk for these problems and to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack. Ramipril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently.

ACE inhibitor: Common adverse drug reactions include: hypotension, cough, hyperkalemia, headache, dizziness, fatigue,

nausea, and renal impairment. Some evidence also suggests ACE inhibitors might increase inflammation-related pain.

Rosuvastatin (generic name) Rosuvas (brand name) is used together with diet, weight-loss, and exercise to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke and to decrease the chance that heart surgery will be needed in people who have heart disease or who are at risk of developing heart disease. Rosuvastatin is also used to decrease the amount of cholesterol such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and triglycerides in the blood and to increase the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol') in the blood. Rosuvastatin may also be used to decrease the amount of cholesterol and other fatty substances in the blood in children and teenagers 10 to 17 years of age who have familial heterozygous hypercholesterolemia (an inherited condition in which cholesterol cannot be removed from the body normally). Rosuvastatin is in a class of medications called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins). It works by slowing the production of cholesterol in the body to decrease the amount of cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body.

Nonprescription aspirin is also used to prevent heart attacks in people who have had a heart attack in the past or who have angina (chest pain that occurs when the heart does not get enough oxygen). Nonprescription aspirin is also used to reduce the risk of death in people who are experiencing or who have recently experienced a heart attack. Nonprescription aspirin is also used to prevent ischemic strokes (strokes that occur when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood to the brain) or mini-strokes (strokes that occur when the flow of blood to the brain is blocked for a short time) in people who have had this type of stroke or mini-stroke in the past. Aspirin will not prevent hemorrhagic strokes (strokes caused by bleeding in the brain). Aspirin is in a group of medications called salicylates. It works by stopping the production of certain natural substances that cause fever, pain, swelling, and blood clots.










A few things.

1) Eating sugar / sweets is not advisable in Diabetes.

2) Your a1c is high.

3) Sugar doesn't spill into urine at 156 level. It's 180 mg /100 ml or 320 mg /ml in renal flow. Your pp reading must be high.

I have some news to share. Today I got the tests repeated. My FBS is 95, PP2: 122, HBA1C: 6.0, No sugar in urine. 3 month eAG/Average glucose: 126. All other blood reports are normal, except Thyroid reports. My T3: 0.6 (normal: 0.8 to 1.7), T4: 3.4 (normal: 4.2 to 12.5) and TSH: 6.0 (normal: 0.27 to 4.2).

I have not taken any medicine for sugar control. I started 1 hour walking per day, more vegetables, more water/fluids, less of rice. I lost nearly 3 Kgs of my weight. I could control sugar with life style changes only. But the Thyroid is still not getting controlled. could some one suggest for better control of Thyroid function.

Thanks in advance.
