Now I am able to have BP under control but my sugar level goes up to 170 or so in the morning (fasting) please suggest to me if i have to try anything else. Because of muscle pains i stopped storvas 10 and also my cholesterol level went down very much. My primary concern is to bring down the sugar level. My hb1a test was 8.5 which is of course high. I walk half an hour daily. Very careful in diet . Help me please, I want to know what to do to bring down the sugar level

Hi!!! Welcome to healthcare magic community forum...
Uncontrolled diabetes is not an uncommon problem…. But allowing them to continue can lead to complications…
A good diabetic control needs regular medication as strictly as possible, a good diabetic diet plan and weight losing exercise… You will have to re assess which of these is/are not working fine...
Consult your diabetologist to modify the medications…. Work up a better dietary plan. You can take the help of a nutritionist in preparing a dietary plan if needed. Watch your weight… Physical exercise concentrating on losing weight is important
Apart from this, sugars can flare up in times of stress and infection… Watch out for the stressors and infections.… Your sugars should come under control with small but important modifications…
Hope this message was useful.....
Thanks and Regards
