Hello, Thanks for the query.

I have seen the details given. Random blood glucose 220 mg is quite higher than expected normal. Usually in a normal person following levels are seen : FBG < 100 mg, PP 6.5% is diabetes), that will give a clear idea. Even now you should initiate the treatment with Tablet Tenelegliptin 20 mg and Metformin 500 mg to taken just after breakfast. I am not aware of the brand names availabe in your country.

Suppose if that is not available then drug like Vildagliptin with Metformin can be taken. There is a brand Tenlefine M available there. So start with that. Plus you need to reduce your weight at 94 kgs your BMI is 27.40 kgs/Sq meter (Normal < 23 kgs/Sq meter). Your ideal body weight should be about 81 kgs. Hence weightreduction itself will help in achieving a better glucose control. So look at your diet, avoid junk foods, increase intake of green leafy vegetabbles, salads. Reduce rice intake, avoid bakery items & foods mde from maida(white flour). Increase protein intake. Plus exercise for over 1 hour a day. Avoid alcohol and smoking. In diabetes modified lifestyle is a necessity. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
