Diabetic, high sugar levels. Taking D-diabetes powder. Ayurvedic medication to control sugar?

I am male suffering from diabetes since around five years. I am on D-Diabetes powder since 2 years, but my sugar levels are 170 fasting and 200 after food. My weight is 62 kg and height is 5ft4inch. Can you please tell me Ayurvedic treatment other than panchakarma which I can take.

Diabetes is chronic lifestyle disease,like you many many patients live with highblood sugar level and do not take medicine or insulin. It is more harmful to live with high blood sugar level rather than to have blood sugar controled with drugs or insulin.
You can always take care of diet,exercise regularly,can do yoga and Pranayam.
At least take up walking for 3 to 4 km daily to start with.
Along with FBS and PPBS check HB A1c which will help to know blood sugar control in last 3 months.
Insulin is a natural hormone if used for treatment of diabetes has ony benefit and no side effect very rarely may cause hypoglycemia which can be treated easily and with proper monitoring very very rare.
A holistic way of therapy would be better instead of avoiding antidiabetic drugs.
You have to live with diabetes but certainly can be controlled.
Take care.
