Thanks for writing in.
I am a medical specialist with an additional degree in cardiology. I read your question with diligence. In fact 60 percent of my cardiology patients have diabetes
. Whereas in my experience of two decades I did not come across any reliable herbal medicine for helping in Diabetic Care.
In your case I have a suggestion that maximum permissible does of the safest drug for diabetes Metormin is about 3000 mg and extended release tablets are also available. Increase metformin
to 1 Gm extended release twice a day. if you can tolerate this measure Fasting blood Sugar, correspondingly you can reduce the dose of Diamicron
MR , a) if you strictly control your diet b) Do regular exercise, perhaps the second drug can be omitted. After the patient is stable a three monthly glycated hemobglobin (HbA1C
) needs to done which gives very good idea of diabetic control. Good Luck.
With Best Wishes
