Is taking Galvus 50 twice a day useful?

I have diabetes Type 2. I was prescribed with Diamorm -M twice a day and Galvus 50 Once a day. At this level, My glycemic readings were Fasting 130 and PP 160 mg/DL. My doctor revised the prescription as Galvus 50 twice a day and dianorm -M twice a day. I have read in these blogs and wiki that Galvus(Vildagliptin) is not useful for administration above or below 50 mg/ day. I there fore want to know whether use of galvus 50 twice a day will be useful. I remember Dr. Promod has advised me to use Vogli/ Voglistar 0.2 mg at night meals.Want to know the maximum dose of vilda gliptin (Galvus/Jalra 50 mg.)

Dear Anup. We have almost similar views on diet matters. But kindly offer your opinion how far an excess dose of vildagliptin (Galvus 50 mg) will be effective as wiki suggests the proper dose is only 50 mg a day, not more or not less than this will be effective. My doctor is authority in Cardiology and diabetes in Channai, but still he has prescribed double the dose that may not be useful as per wiki.

Dear

Mr. Anup has a point here. Switch to Lchf diet if it is not possible at least switch to Low carb. diet, Use Urad , Moong Dal, Chana, Rajmah, Spinach(Palak), Carrot, etc. Please take time to watch the video of H.Bhaskar of Coimbatore titleled as Naalamu Yoga part 1 to 4. It is narrated in Tamil, and you may not face any difficulty. At least do the exercise and walk, and pranayam daily morning will do the miracles.

It is better to take second opinion from any other Doctor on this matter.Start Walk.If it is not possible in Morning then please Walk for 30 minutes in evening,as per your comfort.Start from 10 min. and increase the time gradually,this will definitely help in control of diabetes.

In this Blog everybody is very generous to advise to take Low Carb High Fat Diet. But nobody specifies which are the items containing LCHF and the quantity to be taken by a diabetic person. Only advices donot help us. Pl name a few ( for example : say rice-50gms, ata-50 gms, oat-25 gms etc).But I feel change in diet and life style certainly promotes controlling Blood Sugar. Expect advise from an experienced doctor.

Sir, the food intake depends on one's capacity and body requirement.

For Breakfast, I take one cup raw Palak Jjuice150 ml. I take paranthas fried in Butter or Desi Ghee. The floor for Paranathas are 1 part wheat floor, and 3 parts Soya been floor, mixed together.along with along with Curd(Dahi). I have stopped taking Tea.

For Lunch also i take the paranathas with any subji, and tomoto salad.with lassi(namkeen)

For Dinner I take Chila of moongdal(Chilkawala- unpolished)

In the evening I take Tea or Coffee with Toast or Biscuits.

I have just followed this after much thought. The result is fasting sugar level came down from 160-190 to 100 to 125. within a span of two/three days.

Pp level dropped from 280 to 140/160. Now I have to see how to reduce the medicene.

I do around 45 to 75 mts of Pranayam and exercise. Evening 20 mts of jogging and exercise.

After one week I am thinking of consulting my doctor, or my self will reduce the dosage.

Most important is willingness to change the diet.

Any clarifications please ask

Your sugar level is perfect. Don't change the medicine . You need not to be worried about your sugar level . If possible go for 40 mts brisk walk. Self is suffering from last 20 years & my experience says that Dr;s are basically commercial person.
