Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 69 year old male. I am a diabetic patient using Cetapin XR 500 tablets since the last two years. My blood sugar is almost in control, but I am losing weight. Can you help me?

Answered by Dr. Shaikh Sadaf


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query and from what you have mentioned, it appears that your diabetes is well controlled with your medications. This medication is suitable for your age and diabetes stage. However, it can cause a slight weight loss. You can lose weight as a sign of aging as well. Try to take a high-protein diet. Hope you find my advice beneficial. Good luck.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
