Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Also, start Lantus insulin 8 units in the night after dinner along with the medicines mentioned above. Blood sugar is on the higher side, and you need to control your weight and take a strict diet.

Avoid oily, fried, and outside food. Do daily walk for 30 minutes.

Report with FBS (fasting blood sugar), PPBS (postprandial blood sugar) reports after a month.

Thank you doctor,

Other than Insulin, what can I do to control my sugar levels? I am worried about starting Insulin DR.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

If you do not want to start insulin, I suggest you change from Glyciphage 500 to Glyciphage-GP-1 in the morning. Your blood sugar needs to be below 7, but it is 7.6, so you need to change the medicine.

Along with that, a strict diet and daily exercise are also important. The rest of the medicines which are for hypertension and cholesterol need to be continued as prescribed.

You can revert if you have any queries.
