Good evening to all!
My name is Surendra Shukla and I am 31 years old, my height is 5'6, and my weight is 83 kg, earlier it was 88 kg but i have reduced 5 kg in last 25 days, somewhere around a month back when I was suffering from UTI infection and I was on antibiotics, i went for my hba1c test and my result came as 5.9, so basis on this report I am a prediabetic as per the guidelines but as we all know that hba1c shows our last 3 months blood sugar level in our body.
I used to drink 1 quarter whisky every night since last 3 to 4 months and I used to have rice in my dinner most of the time.
I also went for my ogtt test. results are as below.
After having 75 gm of glucose!
After 1 hour - 158 ( 1st reading came as 189 i asked the lab technician to repeat the test with same sample, he did the same and second reading came as 158)
After 2 hours - 134 ( 1st reading came as 114 after putting it on repeat it came as 134)
After 3 hours - 109
One gentle from this forum suggested me to go for fasting insulin serum test & fasting blood sugar test, I did the same, results are as below.
Fasting insulin serum - 11
Fasting blood sugar - 105
Since i got my hba1c test report, I have completely cut down myself on rice & sugary things, even earlier I never used to drink tea or coffee.
I started going for a walk in the evening 5 km in a day & I do yoga in morning, I am doing yoga since last 4 to 5 years, about 15 to 20 minutes everyday in the morning.
After these tests i am taking my reading on gluco meter after every alternate day.
Readings are as below.
20th may 2018 fasting blood sugar - 77
22nd may 2018 fasting blood sugar -66
25th may 2018 fasting blood sugar- 81
28th may 2018 fasting blood sugar - 67
29th may 2018 fasting blood sugar- 94
Today I had my lunch first then I ate 100gm of sweet and after two hours I checked my blood sugar level it was 99 then after 2 to 3 minutes later i took a blood sample from my different finger and then reading came as 70.
A week back my pp was 71 ( i took the sample after 3 to 4 hours of my lunch)
Another day I did a random check and it was 120!
So my question is that if you are taking alcohol every single night and u are taking rice most of the time in your dinner, u also have some urine infection and u are on antibiotics too, so can't it increase your hba1c count?
I have no diabetic history in my family!
So I don't think so that I am a prediabetic what is your opinion on this!
I will be looking forward to your reply.
Each and every answer will be highly appreciated.
