Diabetes - Triglyceride problem

Q: My father is a diabetic recently his fasting sugar is 291 and triglyceride is 611. From the last 5 years he is taking prescribed medicines for diabeties. He works out regularly and controls diet also but his job requires more of sitting and mental pressure. Now he is taking glynase MF BD, bezalip retard BD. Please suggest some remedy for triglyceride problem and kindly tell whether the treatment is right or not.

A:The fasting blood sugar is abnormal. However, this is just one reading and therefore it is not possible to give a definite opinion regarding the blood sugar control without additional blood sugar readings as well as the haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level which is a measure of the average blood sugars in the preceeding three months. So if the fasting sugars are consistently above 126 mg% and the HbA1c greater than 7.0 better blood sugar control medicine or add another oral medication. The entire lipid profile should be done. He certainly needs to be treated for the elevated triglycerides. The target value is less than 200 mg%. The medication used for this purpose must be decided by his physician
