Brief Answer:
the HbA1c just entered prediabetes

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The fasting blood sugar and the HbA1c are in the prediabetic range. This means that they would not classify you as a diabetic but as a prediabetic--- you are at risk of developing diabetes in the future.

The exact point at which this would occur is not known for any prediabetic, it can be weeks, months or years.

The time from prediabetes to diabetes can be lengthened by diet changes, exercise and a medication called metformin.
The metformin may not be needed now since the HbA1c is just, just into the prediabetic range but it can be considered if it progresses

Now you would focus mainly on diet changes and exercise to prevent the prediabetes and this would work with the medication to help with the cholesterol.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Thanks for the advice.

Kindly let me know what food should I consume to prevent myself from getting diabetes.

I take only breakfast & lunch(sometimes towards evening) and for dinner i take only fruits and veggies.

I don't take anything else other than this.

Brief Answer:
reduce carbohydrates

Detailed Answer:
HI

You can use three main meals if you wish, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Using a lot of fruits and vegetables is great and should be continued.

Reducing your carbohydrates (you do not need to cut it out completely, just reduce),would help.
This would be bread, rice, pasta, biscuits, potato, carbonated drinks, some juices.

Dr,
Suddenly,I started getting boils on the face

What could be the reason for this??
Thanks
 
 
Answered by Dr. Michelle Gibson James 8 hours later
Brief Answer:
usually entry of bacteria through a small opening

Detailed Answer:
HI

sorry for the delayed reply

Boils are most commonly due to infection of hair follicles.
Bacteria normally lives on the skin, if the bacteria on the skin should enter into the skin through any small cut or scratch mark or abrasion then an infection can occur.

Clean twice daily with a mild anti septic and apply a topical antibiotic twice daily.

If there is no improvement then you would need to see your doctor for an oral antibiotic

dr,
is it because of cholesterol that I am getting boils on the face?

Answered by Dr. Michelle Gibson James 21 minutes later
Brief Answer:
no, this is not related to cholesterol

Detailed Answer:
HI

Cholesterol is not associated with infections. It causes blood vessels to become blocked and can affect the heart (heart attack etc) or brain (stroke) if it is not controlled, but it does not cause infections
