Hello there. I can understand your concern. Her sugars are not in control. Take her to a diabetologist. She may need some change in the medications. Also she needs to make some dietary changes and lifestyle changes. She should avoid foods with high glycemic index like rice, coconut etc. She should have a high protein and a high fiber diet. She should also have a salt restricted diet. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Generally, Walking for Minimum 45 minutes a day + Strict Diet Control can reduce your blood sugar If you can share your (a) Fasting Glucose (b) Post Prandial Glucose (c) HbA1c (d) Blood Urea (e) Serum Creatinine (f) Lipid Profile reports I can tailor make the prescription (exercise Schedule + Drugs + Diet Chart) for you Also Mention your (a) Age (b) Weight (c) Height (d) Whether you take Non Vegetarian Food.
