The doctor told my dad that he might have diabetes , my dads sugar level is 6.0 and that is when he didnt he. Im in canada so we have a different measuring system for blood sugar level, plz help im really concerned, does my dad have diabetes ?
The measuring units are mmol/liter I think. The normal range is upto 5.8, which means it is slightly elevated. It means now I think only lifestyle management is quite sufficient rather than active medications. Lifestyle management includes diet and exercise which is very essential at any stage of diabetes.

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...
We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
