I want to know that my random blood sugar level is 117. So, can u tell me if my sugar is normal or not or am i diabetic patient and if so plz tell me the remedies also to cure my disease.
ANSWER: Hi Amita,
According to ADA/EASD hyperglycemia management guidelines, blood sugar levels targets should be set personally and specifically for each person according to their age, body indexes (weight, height) and other diseases and conditions they might have.
Based on this, I should have these data of yours. If you a young person, such glucose levels can be accepted due to high metabolism rate of the young people.
However, if you are a mature person with other diseases; then, I should ask you to go for the next steps as the following.
In addition, I want you to measure your blood sugar levels for 2 subsequently weeks (each day at one precise time).
Next, I would like to ask you to measure fasting blood sugar, oral-glucose tolerance test, and A1C test. All these data are necessary to give an exact diagnosis.
Once I would have all these data, I could give an exact answer whether you are a diabetic, a pre-diabetic or a going-to-be:).
Please guide me that my daily fasting sugar level always comes less than 105. But after getting A1C my result comes 6.7%. Kindly advice what it means. I was quite satisfied that I was under control. Please also note that I am not taking any medicine. I only use your tips of Natural remedies.

How to take care for my health?

Very informative. I like your suggestions. I follow your suggestion. I have one doubt: How do ladies finger help to sugar level lowering?
ANSWER: Hi Padmini,
Lady finger, also known as okra is a good source of fiber:
1. Soluble fiber (named "superior") that inhibits the absorption of glucose from intestines.
2. The mucilage compound can bind the cholesterol; thus, inhibiting its absorption from intestines and preventing high cholesterol.
3. The insoluble fiber content aids in the formation of fecal mass, ensuring its smoothy passage through colon.
4. Lady fingers are also a good source of many vitamins like: vitamin A, C, B6, folic acid, etc. Thus, they supply diabetics with what they lacks.
Hope your doubt is cleared out!
All the best! Do not forget lifestyle and other dietary changes for the best control of diabetes.
