Hello,
Welcome to health care magic forum,
first go through investigation, HbA1C which gives you avarage sugar level in blood in last 3 months.
if it is normal there is no need to medicine now. but diabetic diet and walking, exercise is must as you have family history of diabetes.
do regular investigation FBS,PP2BS--- if they are increasing then you need to take regular medicine.
there are so many cases of diabetes are treated with homeopathic medicine with very minimum medicine and without any side effect. and after some time patient can have normal sugar without medicine.
decision is yours.
have a good health

Your blood sugar levels are under control due to drug you are taking regularly. If you stop the drug, blood sugar level might go up which diminishes immunity & have so many side effects. Small & frequent mills, foods poor in carbohydrate content & rich in fiber and regular exercise will of course help, but still you may require to continue the drug. Thus in my opinion you should not stop medicine prescribed to control blood sugar without advise of your doctor.

As you are on medication your sugar level is under control , So cannot stop the drugs suddenly as again your sugar level will come up. If your levels remains normal for long time then you can decrease the dose for maintainance after discussing with your physician.
about controlling through your diet immeterial of whether you are on medication or off should strictly follow the dietary regimen for diabetes.

Hi,

Please get your glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C) done to check for the blood glucose levels in the last few months.

Also get a repeat fasting and postprandial blood sugar level tested.

If the values are high, you may need to continue the drug. If not, it can be controlled by diet and lifestyle modifications without any drugs.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
