Help yes, but it should be from your treating doctor including changing medications or dosage or both. The need for insulin will also have to be judged depending on the blood sugar levels at present.

I am 21 years of age. For the past 1 week I was feeling very tired and I had increased thirst and urination. My parents were forcing me to see a doctor. But I was reluctant. I told them I was too young to be diabetic. Anyways I finally visited a doctor and got my blood tested. I was shocked to see the result. It was 275. The doctor told me that I would have to take Glucophage 500 mg daily and I would have to get my blood tested once in a week until my blood sugar level is under control. I would like to know what are the risks i face being so young and diagnosed with Diabetes. Please clarify. Thank You.

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.
