I m 47 years old with current weight at 76 kg hieght 5ft 7 inch. I had borderline diabetes with Hb1Ac. 6.8 , weight 84kg in June 22. With diet control n morning walk for one hour , Hb1Ac now in range of 5.6, Fasting sugar at 10. I am without sugar medicines since September 22. My weight has been stagnant at 76kg for last 6 months. Pls advise how further i can improve my blood glucose level n reduce my stagnant weight

Ans: I think you are doing quite well. You have managed to get off the diabtes medications and have lost 8 kg in about 7 months. Subsequent weight loss is going to be much slower. I think you just need to continue with what you are doing at present (in terms of diet and exercise) . Further weight loss is going to be a very slow process. Your HbA1C levels are reasonable now. You must however understand that if you have a genetic predisposition to diabetes, diet and exercise can at best delay the onset of diabetes but may not be able to completely prevent it in the long run.
