Can you please upload you sugar reports. We will be able to judge your status of Diabetes after we know the sugar levels.

As of know you can start with the following preventive measures

1. Weight loss
2. Daily 30 min brisk walking
3. Reduce sugar intake (sweets, cakes,free sugar in tea etc)
4. Reduce starch intake (like potato etc)

If your blood sugars are of a certain level we need to start medication irrespective of the above. Contrary to earlier concept, the current concept is that the earlier we start medications for Diabetes, the better is the long term results

With Warm Regards
