My father, he is 58 year old and he got a hyperglycemia about 3years, in this case what medicine he need to take? How to protect and stop high sugar?

A low glycemic diet & exercise will help, & certain supplements can be helpful such as berberine & cinnamon. It would be useful to know other lab values such as HGB a1c, to tell how high the blood sugar has been over months, & Insulin level to tell how well the Insulin is being used.

The pills take too long and are too broad-acting to use for this purpose. If happens more than once every several months, talk to dr about having an Insulin option to help 'reset' blood glucose when climbing too high. ...Read more
