Thanks for writing to HCM
You didn’t mentioned what sugar level you have. It matters in management.

If it is not controlled, then oral hypoglycemic agents are given.
If it is still uncontrolled or very high then insulin injection is given.
What are the symptoms for sugar
Hi and thanks for posting on HCM.
By sugar I suppose you mean diabetes. This manifests as excessive thirst and drinking, excessive urination and weight loss. These are the principal signs.
Do fasting blood sugar if you are concerned or have the above symptoms.
Hope this answers your query. I wish you well.
