I have measured my blood sugar, last 2 months fasting it is remaining 125 to 140 and after 2 hrs. of breakfast it is 144 to 175. Am I a diabetic patient? If yeas. Please give me a guideline to control that one. My age is about 52 years.
According to the American Diabetes Association a fasting blood glucose over 126 mg/dl is one of the ways diabetes is diagnosed. Please see my blog " 7 Important Numbers People with Diabetes Need to Know" at: http://www.diabetescare.net/Blog/Clara_Schneider/F703F1CC-F9CC-456A-B3DE-CE444D9B4D03.
Make an appointment with your physician and see if you need to lose weight. You many also want to see a dietitian to advise you on your nutritional needs and to make a meal plan that is balanced and planned with your health needs in mind. Ask if you can walk 15 minutes after each meal. You may also ask if you need medication at this time. Please let us know how you make out.
