Hi, I am XXXX XXXXXXX and I am 29 years old software professional. Recenlty I lost 6-7 kg of weight within 3 week of time. I went for medical checkup and came to know that my blood sugar level is very high 300+. I used to smoke but after knowing my sugar level I quit it completely. I am worried about my life style and what all should I eat in my diet to control sugar level. Will I be able to control sugar level or not? Do you have any special diet, medicine or exercises? What kind of life style I should follow? Please guide in detail. I want to control sugar level and make it normal permanently.
