One Question and Answer

Que : I tested my blood sugar here and it is
425 mg%.I took 40 units of insulin and tested again after 2 hours. It is 355. According to your speech, you said that the average blood sugar should be around 140mg%. But all my friends and myself always have blood sugar around 250mg%.Why is it so?

Jothydev : In our diabetes camps at different areas in Kerala, I have observed that as high as 92% of diabetes patients on medications have unacceptably high blood sugar values and ultimately develop all complications. A very thorough evaluation, careful titration with various drugs combined with diet and exercise will help all patients reach those targets. In this modern era though treatment is expensive, we can very easily reach normal sugar values.
