My age is 38 years and my HbA1c has gone to 6.2 % with high cholesterol and lipids. My fasting and post fasting blood sugar is however in range and no health complications yet. I am attaching my report. Please suggest whether I need to take any preventive measures. Based upon the report, I have already started morning walk (earlier I used to only walk after dinner). I have low back pain also. So, instead of any heavy exercise, I only do around 15 to 20 minutes of yoga to strengthen my back. My father is a diabetic (68 years) and also has blood pressure problem. I feel lethargic sometimes, but I have craving for sweets. Please guide.
From the history you have told, your blood sugar levels are under control with high cholesterol. There is family history of diabetes which makes you prone for diabetes in future. So, you have to make dietary modifications. Physical activity is also important here. Avoid sweets, non-vegetarian diet, fried foods and outside food. You can start on tablet Lipitor (Atorvastatin calcium) 10 mg once daily for 15 days. This will keep your cholesterol levels under control. Diet modification and physical activity are the best preventive measures for diabetes. Please follow the advice and report to me after 15 days.
Thank you for your advice. I am uploading the reports. Following are some out of range values: HbA1c 6.2 % (fasting blood sugar as 97 mg/dL), total cholesterol 242 mg/dL (triglyceride 127 mg/dL and HDL 63.1 mg/dL), VLDL 25.40 mg/dL, LDL 153.50 mg/dL, SGOT 45.30 mg/dL and SGPT 81.80 mg/dL. Can I start using BGR 34, which is an approved drug to avoid diabetes?
BGR 34 is an ayurveda medicine for diabetes released by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). I am not sure about its effect, so cannot say whether it is effective or not. Above all, if you are controlling your blood glucose on diet and activity, then there is no need to start any medication. But, keep monitoring blood sugar levels on regular basis. Your lipids are raised, which needs some attention and for which I have prescribed tablet Lipitor 10 mg once daily.
