Doctor: HelloThank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”Your sugar levels are higher than normal range.But single r le reading is not enough to diagnose diabetes.You are suggested to stop sugar and sweets and repeat fasting as well as post-meal blood sugar after 10 days.In diabetes, polydipsia (more Thirst), polyurea (more urination) and polyphagia (more carving for food) are symptoms.Please see your Doctor.Doctor will take your history, carry out a physical examination and may suggest some investigations like routine blood tests and HbA1c test to arrive at diagnosis.Hope this helps.
