Regarding diabetes ( sugar level is 171mg/dl)

Patient: Hi,i am 33yrs old woman , my fasting blood sugar level is 171 mg/dl , iam diabetic.

 

 

Doctor: Hi, your fasting sugar levels are high. You need to check your post prandial(1 to 2hr after food) sugar levels, if post prandial sugar levels are also high then you require to change the dosage of antidiabetic drug which you have been taking or add one more drug to the existing antidiabetic drug. I would advise you see a physician or diabetologist.
