Doctor: Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.Your fasting blood sugar is high, that is suggestive of diabetes. But since your po st prandial blood sugar is normal, you require further evaluation.However, to confirm that, blood sugar estimation is required.I would advise you to get following investigations done:1. HbA1c2. Fasting lipid profile3. Serum creatinine4. Urine for microalbumin, routine and microscopy.5. ECG.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
