Frequently Asked Questions

Type 1diabetes can’t be cured, but blood sugar levels can be well-managed by diet and exercise. Blood sugar is best managed with the use of insulin in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise program


Prediabetes is when your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes. If you don’t make lifestyle changes, adults and children with prediabetes are at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is possible to reverse through diet changes and weight loss. This does not mean that you are cured, as Diabetes is an ongoing disease.

Insulin is prescribed to people with diabetes and, in general, it’s administered when they haven’t been able to adequately manage their disease through diet or exercise. The effectiveness of these medications depends on the timing and size of the dose.

Long-standing diabetes sometimes becomes recalcitrant to older drugs. The new and latest generation of drugs is more potent in controlling blood sugars with heart and kidney protective properties. At Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centres, we also check on the insulin secretion of the patient and the functioning of the pancreas. Thereafter, a decision on changing to insulin is made, depending on the patient’s ease. They are also educated on the usage of insulin pens or pumps so that they can remain active without the problem of taking injections repeatedly.

Diabetic kidney disease is a decrease in kidney function that can occur in people with diabetes. This can lead to a build-up of toxins and fluids, which may then be damaging to your body.

If your blood sugar levels are often higher than 240 mg/dL in children and 300 mg/dL in adults, you may have severe symptoms like blurred vision, extreme thirst and excessive hunger. To get better, you need to visit the doctor and keep your blood sugar levels under control. You must be strict with your diet and exercise

urine tests are only able to diagnose high blood sugar. This is because the body does not usually get rid of sugar in the urine if someone is mildly or moderately high in sugar levels. If there is sugar in your urine, you should consult a diabetologist.
