HI,
YOU DEFIATELY HAVE A HIGH BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL ALONG WITH TREATMENT. YOU NEED TO EXERCISE OR JOG IN THE MORNING. CUT DOWN YOUR SUGAR INTAKE TO ZERO. CONTINUE YOUR TREATMENT WITH YOUR DOCTOR HE MAY NEED TO ADJUST YOUR DOSE AS PER YOUR SUGAR LEVELS. WITH TREATMENT SUGAR LEVELS HAVE DEFINATELLIY FALLEN. IF REQUIRED LATER ON INJ OF INSULIN MAY BE CONSIDERED IF THE SUGAR LEVEL IS NOT UNDER CONTROL. EXERCISING WILL DEFINATELY HELP

General & Family Physician Dr. Gautam Das's  Response
Hi. Taking from your brief description i take it that you are mentioning her sugar levels in Mmol/l. These are high levels and it seems inspite of medications they are not being controlled. Please understand that you need to follow the doctor's advise in totality...i.e both the medications and other advise like eating habits and lifestyle. Diabetes is an elusive monster and we can treat it only if the patient is compliant with the therapy. Since she is a young patient i would really advise you to visit your doctor and work out a new regime which you have to follow strictly before serious complications set in.

Hello there,

Truly understand your queries and anxiety.
The very important thing is you should mention the units of BSL (blood sugar level ). Is it mg/dl OR Mmol?

These things are very important.
