Thank you for your query.
Blood sugars can be tricky to control and the treatment regimen differs from person to person.
Your initial treatment with Mixture (30/70)is a combination of short acting and long acting insulin
which works for some but did not for you. Apidra
is a fast acting insulin to be given with meals for controlling postprandial (after meals) sugar levels.
Glaritus is a long acting insulin given once a day to keep your insulin levels stable.
This may work out for you as your sugars fluctuate drastically and even cause hypoglycemic episodes.
Please follow the latter prescription and monitor your blood sugar levels regularly as advised by your doctor. Please follow up regularly. It may take a few adjustments to get the right treatment for you.
Your HbA1C is very high and needs to be controlled effectively to avoid complications.
I recommend :
-regular follow up.
-a complete general exam to check for any signs of organ damage
-electrocardiogram and echocardiogram
-blood tests (complete blood count
, lipid profile
and liver function tests)
-a good exercise regimen after consulting your doctor
-weight lost if overweight
-a healthy & nutritious diet (avoid refined grains and processed food, fried and salty items, sugary & carbonated drinks).
-include whole grains, fresh veges and fruits.
Consult a nutritionist if you have difficulty losing weight or getting your sugars under control.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
Wish you good health.
