Cough once for year on an average occur and treated with syrups and antibiotics. Now I am 59 years old. The hba1c values are presently below 9. I am not prescribed any b complex and not using them. I shall be taking routine food with rice as main item but less in quantity. Frequently I shall be monitoring sugar levels with a glucometer one touch select and most of the times the levels would be below 140 in fasting and around 200 post lunch. Rarely the levels cross 200 and I shall be taking one glycomet 500 tab in addition to regular dose I.e glycomet gp1 morning and night one 2 tabs each time. My bp is normal and will be raised rarely to 140. Earlier doctor prescribed one 20mg tab and the bp was become lower than 120 every time and stopped bp tablet on observation that bp levels were mentioned around 130 as per doctors advice. Recently the diabetologist adviced to take the following Glycomet GP1 tabs @2 twice a day Ecosprin AV 75 one tab/day Enapril ht 10mg 1/2 tab everyday Insulin 10 units everyday night Except insulin I am taking all the above medicine and there is no any problem in my daily routine. My serum creatinine value is around 1.3 every time and getting my eyes check for every six months or so. Please kindly advice me to continue or start taking 10 units of insulin in the night as fasting blood sugar always will be more than 100
