Hi doctor,

I am a 34-year-old male. My blood sugar level was 300 fasting and 423 postprandial two months back. But recently my sugar level is 96 fasting and 99 is postprandial and HbA1c is 6.8 at present. I am taking Janumet 50/500 once daily after breakfast and Pioz MF 15 before dinner. My creatinine level is 1.33 at present. So I am worried about my kidneys. Is it the right treatment? Please suggest me.



Welcome to

I just read your query and from what you have mentioned it appears that your medications are right. However, regarding your kidney, I would suggest that you check your urinary ACR (albumin-creatinine ratio) and a repeat serum creatinine and get back for review. Also, mention your recent blood pressure readings.

Thank you doctor,

Recently, I did the urinary ACR report last month. It was 109.67 and the albumin-creatinine ratio was 1.28 and blood pressure is 101/75 mmHg today. So. is there any problem? And will those medicines harm my kidneys in the future? Please suggest me.



Welcome back to

Your kidney function tests are good. So, there is nothing to worry about. A diabetic person’s kidney can be affected by the progression of the disease more than by the medications, in which case, they need to be stopped and insulin has to be started. So do not worry about it now. Keep checking your HbA1c and creatinine levels every three months.
