The most important factor is to cut your body fat percentage. Our bodies (especially men) store excess body fat around the waist which affects the functioning of the pancreas in producing insulin. Reducing your body fat (to under 15%) plays a big role in solving the problem. So this will cure you from turning to diabetic from pre-diabetic.

Balancing your blood glucose level is the purpose/reason for taking any diabetic medications. When you take any diabetic medicine, your body uses it to allow glucose from your blood into your cells. This timing is important because, you want it to work at or around the same time you eat. Taking diabetic medicine, after your meal could cause your blood sugar level to spike before your medicine starts working. If your blood sugar levels are too high, this increases your risk for conditions like Kidney failure, Amputations, Brain Ischemia and Stroke.

The consequences of high blood sugar are really serious when sustained over a long period time. These consequences, stemming from the accumulation of excess glucose in the blood stream, clogging the fine capillaries of the eyes (causing retinopathy), the kidneys (causing nephropathy), and the extremities, leading to reduced circulation into fingers and toes, which may then necessitate amputation. In the short run, high blood glucose, over 300 mg/dL, can cause type one diabetic to feel listless and sluggish, and to need to urinate frequently.

What is ketoacidosis?

Deeksha Khare says

Keto — ketones, acidosis — low pH/acid excess. It is a condition which arises due to the excessive amount of ketones in the blood. Ketones are an alternative for glucose, as source of energy. Commonly happens when the blood does not have enough glucose (sugar) to consume. In this case, chemicals called ketones are used by the body cells. This has a drawback, the reaction is acidic basically, resulting in a low pH, which is dangerous to the body. One example is in diabetics. When their glucose levels fall low (such people are not able to maintain their glucose levels and thus, cannot bring it back up), body starts using ketones but that leads to Diabetic Ketoacidose (DKA) — presenting as sweating, confusion, sighing breathing, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting, etc.

Definitely u can have sugar..see, it is mostly considered that taking high sugar leads to hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus..but the thing is not so simple..Basically if u donot take extra sugar even then u can develop DM due to the resistance of the body cells to insulin..type 2 DM is a problem of the body cells …So a person with normal food intake can develop DM also , even if he doesnt take sweets..but if u are diagnosed with DM then the first and foremost condition is to …CONTROL the sugar level..and not by refraining totally from sweets..instead trying to burn down the calorie.. exercise, yoga, proper sleep habits are all useful in DM..A regular and controlled life is more important.. and burning down the carbs is one of the most helpful way to deal with Type 2 DM…
