Hello dr, Greetings! My mother is aged 56. She is a TYPE 2 diabetic and her Fasting used to be 300 and Post fasting was 375. she was on Insulin , Pioglitazone 15mg and Metformin 500. Recently she has stopped insulin and tablets and had diet control and exercise now her blood sugar level has come down to Post fasting 275(after 2 hours of food intake), She achieved these without the help of any tablets or Insulin I would like to know whether she should start taking Insulins or Pios and Metformin. Or shall she continue at this rate or whether she should reduce the amount?

Let her take those medicines and insulin until she reach the normoglycemia. insulin is the wonderfull drug for diabetics so dont stop insulin, once her glucose levels reach near normal levels, your doctor will adjust the insulin dose and drugs. at this stage of diabetes u cannot depend only on diet and lifestlye modifications. plbs -275mg/dl is not good at all.....
