Doctor :   Hello Thank 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.
