Your numbers are way too high. First and foremost, you have to understand what causes diabetes, its complications, and the ways and means of managing it. Diet plays a preeminent role in managing diabetes and equally important are your lifestyle and exercise levels. You will get this knoweldge by visiting several informative posts of knowledgeable people,most of whom are fighting diabetes themseves, And what is your body weight? If it is high,try reducing it in a scientific manner by at least 5 kg.That may go a long way to help you to reduce your numbers.

Stop taking any type of sweetener like sugar glucose artificial sugar Don’t eat anything which is sweet in nature Follow LCHF diet Do exercise regular If you are obese reduce weight Contact a good dietician so that he will guide you to reduce your sugar level to normal without medicine

Hi Khagesh,

Has your doctor suggested eating low carb. high protein or low carb. high fat? What medication(s) has the doctor prescribed? Did the doctor give you a home blood test kit to use? How many times do they want you to test? Are you type 1, 1.5 (LADA) or 2?

He is new to this group. He does not know many terms, questions you asked. Most likely he is bbn in India.

Thank you for letting me know this, Fatbuddy. Very helpful.😀👍


You have taken the first step in asking for help. welcome to DI.

You need to give more information, age, height, weight, what made you go for blood test, do you go for p many times a night and many more?

If you look at the photo at the top your HbA1C is in red, you need to try and bring it to green.

Life style change, regular exercise can help before looking for medication to control blood glucose number. Watching out for hidden and free sugar in food and drinks, avoiding most sweet products, high car food, eating small portions of food are all important. This can be difficult to start with but you can achieve this control.

Take care.

Medical matters need to be discussed with a health professional.You are eating too much carbohydrate essentially. Any medications would attempt to improve your body's ability to use the insulin it has, or even increase insulin output. This is only a short-term fix though. Unless you eat less carbohydrate, the condition will worsen.

Don't eat between meals, and if your blood glucose is above 120 don't eat any more carbohydrate. If you need the energy, get it from natural fats instead that minimally impact insulin.

God bless you.

Dear sir. Meet a doctor who can help you to reduce sugar levels. Age is also a factor. Exercise walking food control etc. . along with medicines controls your levels. Hope it is clear sir.

Articles on type 2 diabetes started on the Mail on line, lots of good information.

If you can provide more details about your diet and exercise regimen, then members may be able to give you advice. e. g. What do you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Also are you taking any medication?

Welcome to this forum. How did you find us ?Why did you test ?

Your A1C is too high.

Immediately find an internal medicine doctor or endocrinologist, get prescription for sugar control. Try 60 days and test again.

Spend 2 or 3 hours a day in this Forum for two weeks to learn more.

Check testing, LCHF diet, other comments for complications and symptoms of low sugar.

First thing - Do not panic. Your values are high. You should meet a good Diabetologist and proceed accordingly.

Check your blood sugar daily (FBS or PPBS) and try to avoid the foods causing high blood sugar. Avoid oils and fat in your diet.

Research has also shown that people with type 2 diabetes who reduce their HbA1c by 1%, 19% less likely to suffer cataracts, 16% less likely to suffer heart failure, 43% less likely to suffer amputation or death due to peripheral vascular disease.

Adopt diabetes diet/ Mediterranean diet/ Low-carbohydrate diet.
