Hello, 
The medicines prescribed to you are meant for high cholesterol and high blood pressure and are perfectly all right,but there is no medicine for control of diabetes. 
It is very important to control the diabetes as uncontrolled diabetes will play havoc with the various internal organs of the body like heart,kidney,eyes,nerves,blood vessels etc. 
Treatment means comprehensive treatment of your mother which means meticulous control of blood sugar,blood pressure and cholesterol. 
Along with medicines,all dietary precautions should be observed along with regular exercises. 
She can go for brisk walk for 45 minutes a day and that would help in controlling sugar as well as cholesterol levels. 
The goal of treament includes keeping blood sugar in normal range. 
BP should be below 120/80 
LDL cholesterol should be below 80 
Triglycerides should be below 150. 
Thanks

Hello, thank you for using Healthcare Magic!

It sounds like these lab test results were a surprise to everyone! From the information you have given me, your mother very likely has diabetes. A fasting blood sugar greater than 126 on two separate occasions would confirm this diagnosis. Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to keep sugar levels in the blood normal. High blood sugar levels lead to serious problems in many different parts of the body including the heart, brain, kidneys, eyes, stomach/intestines and others.

The usual treatment for diabetes is with pills in the beginning. As the disease progresses, it is frequently necessary to begin injecting insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas that moves sugar from the blood into the cells.

If your mother turns out to have diabetes, she will need to be treated for high cholesterol as well. LDL should be no greater than 100 in diabetic patients, and in some (who have severe heart disease, for example) no greater than 70.

Here is a link to some excellent information designed to help patients and their families learn about this disease: http://www.emedicinehealth.com/diabetes/article_em.htm


I hope I have given you some useful information, and wish you the best of health.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kinney
