How long ago are these medicines changed?
we are also giving fenugreek powder
before she was given janvia 100 mg
May I know if she has any symptoms now?
what type of symptoms
here feet were swollen but now it's ok
Has her creatinine level high since long time
or is it detected to be high now?
i am not sure in the begining of this month we tested for kidney and it was high i think this is for the first time we reported it
Let me brief you.
It is best to encourage her to take insulin; but if she doesn't wish to be on insulin, she can continue her current medication.
The current medication are a bit expensive one but has good sugar reducing properties.
so can we use medicines instead of insulin injections to control the sugar level
You can continue the medicines while getting sugars checked frequently.
but i think she need some more dose because current medicine is not controlling it
ok what do u suggest we can do best for controlling sugar level and creatinine
Medicine take some time to control sugar; I would suggest you to wait for a week and repeat sugar levels
You can follow up with the treating doctor and take his suggestions.
Now besides medication,
she will need a strict diet change.
what food items she should not take ??
like nuts milk beans etc
can we give her turmeric milk
Since diet change is most important now, I would suggest you to discuss her current dietary pattern with a dietician.
ok thanks doctor
if you have this feature with you.
ok i will do thanks
you could discuss in detail about it with them.
If you do not have diet plan service with you
you can leave a question to them and they would get back to you.
Do you have any other questions?
no thanks doctor
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
