Hi there!

I understand your concern! I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concern.

A blood sugar level two hours after eating, in non diabetic subjects should be less than 140mg/dl.

I see that you are taking glycomet, it makes me think you are a diabetic patient. It would be great if you could send the exact dose of glycomet recommended from your doctor.

A blood sugar level of 196 mg/dl two hours after eating in diabetic patients is considered within the acceptable range. The oral hypoglycemiant med you are taking once a day is doing well in controlling your blood sugar levels so far.

However, I also advise my diabetic patients when visiting my clinic about implementing healthy lifestyle and diet habits as following:

1. Try to be more physically active. Walking or jogging for at least 30 min/day will also help keep your blood glucose within normal range.

2. Watch what you eat: stay away for high carb/high calorie foods. Instead, try to eat fresh and healthy foods like veggies, fruits, fish, etc.

3. There are certain herbs that have been shown effective in maintaining the blood sugar well controlled.

They include some spice such as cinnamon, herbs like fenugreek, gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, etc. You can have them cooked or can take their extract in type of supplement.

Hope I answered your question!
I would be glad to help you if you have any further questions!
