Hi doctor,

I am a 67-year-old male and having diabetes for the last 15 years. Currently taking Ryzodec (14, 16 units morning and evening respectively), Galvus Met, PPG 0.3 (1 BD). Generally, I do not take any sweet eatables. Still, my blood sugar is erratic. Hb1Ac is 8.2. Please suggest a suitable remedy. Regards.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I thoroughly read your query and understand your concern. Please provide me with the following information to make proper suggestions for adjustments. Is your diabetes type 1 or type 2? Share the blood sugar log for at least five to seven days. I do ask my patient to check blood sugar at least three times daily, in the morning fasting, before lunch, and before breakfast. Any time you have blood sugar less than 80 mg/dL, put it in the log. Have a list of other medications other than diabetes. Have a food log for two to three days at least, whatever you typically eat. If you can send me this information, I can surely suggest adjustments to your medication. I do a very detailed analysis of my patients and provide adjustments considering all the factors and looking at the pattern of what is happening. Hope this helps. Thanks and regards.
