How can I avoid complications of diabetes?

Q: I am a diabetic patient. My blood sugar is presently around 120-140 (PP) and it is under control steadily. As a diabetic patient with blood sugar under control, what are the chances of kidney or heart problems?

A:If you are controlling your sugar level well, as your values seem to suggest, the chances of any complications are low. Please try to ensure the following to avoid any complications: 1. Fasting blood sugar below 110/ maximum 120 2. PP blood sugar below 140/ maximum 160 3. Glycosylated haemoglobin below 6.5/ maximum 7 4. Blood pressure (BP) of 120/80 or below 5. LDL cholesterol below 100 mg/dl If you achieve these, your risk for complications is very low.
