first dont get disheartened and remember too much of worries will affect ur lifestyle and undue stress wont let your sugar calm down as there is an entity called STRESS DIABETES .so dont let it be a part................U need to be working thru different modalities-----incl disciplne,drugs& diet & exercise.........with yoga u can try yoni pranayam ,kapaalbhati if not hypertensive.brahmari will help u curtail stress.AVOID SUGAR INCREASING FOOD.TIMELY TAKE YOUR MEALS. .....u have not used full strength of drugs .it seems uncontroled sugar has affected ur eyes and nerves but never mind they may b in areversible stage .get ur bp checked and start taking tab zoryl M2 two times daily 15-20 min beforemeals __.....get your PP bld sugar done after 5 days and reconsult.
Do not go with one value. Check your fasting and minimum one postprandial blood sugars. Check Hb A1c. If they are still high, you can start Lantus or Levemir, a long acting insulin. That will better control your sugars. You need to check your finger stick blood sugars when you are insulin.
In spite of all these , Diet and exercise are important.
Whether your treatment consists of diet alone, diet and tablets or diet and insulin, you need regular blood tests to keep a check on your blood sugar. Urine sugar test is not a reliable indicator of diabetes control.
When blood glucose remains higher than 200mg/dl for 8-10 weeks, the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) arises. A (HbA1c) measurement therefore reflects the blood glucose control over a preceding 2-3 months period, while the estimates of blood glucose indicate the glucose value at the time of blood test. HbA1c values between 6-7% indicate very good control on diabetes. You should aim at keeping your blood glucose in the normal range i.e. between 90-130 mg/dl while fasting and less than 180 mg/dl after meals and HbA1c around 7%. Frequent tests for blood glucose are necessary when starting treatment with insulin.
If you are doing capillary blood glucose test using a hand held glucometer, do not squeeze the finger to bring out a sample after you have picked. This invariably gives
My son was recently diagnosed with diabetes and they told him that he has probably been a diabetic for a long time. His blood glucose had been i 400 to 500. He has gotten it down to the lower 300 but it won t go any lower. What do you recommend that he does or what Dr he needs to see?

my husband was prescribed invokana on December 22, along with metformin, januvia, glyburide, and levemir for control of diabetes, along with xarelto, atnenolol, pravastatin, and synthroid. He just never seemed right after that. He experienced many very low blood sugar episodes, had trouble sleeping and was very irritable. He did not seem depressed, indeed he had many short and long term plans. However, he took his life on March 11 and wrote a note saying we all would be better off without him (unthinkable). All his doctors and family were completely shocked. Have there been any links with suicide and invokana?
