I was never on medication, I have gone for my hba1c test only for once, one and half months back it was 5.9, and one more thing, neither i am prediabetic nor diabetic.

Then,why are you bothering yourself with all the testing and thinking about diabetes.Forget about it and be happy.

Because my last hba1c count was 5.9, I know that my hba1c count is a bit high & it is because of my extensive use of alcohol not because I am prediabetic, I have gone for my OGTT test twice in last one month & it is normal, I never found my fasting blood sugar above 105 & my maximum pp count was 123 after 2 hours of my lunch or dinner.

You may need to wait longer to get the full effect of the meals; post prandial is usually measured after two hours.

However, you don't seem to have high blood glucose. The amount of carbohydrate you are eating is a concern though. Your insulin levels can be harmfully elevated for years before blood glucose shows abnormality, if at all. You would be susceptible to hyperinsulinaemia related conditions such as atherosclerosis, fatty liver, cancer, stroke, osteopaenia/osteoporosis, spondylosis, arthritis/gout, PCOS, thyroid, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance...

After eating, your blood sugar levels begin to rise within 15 to 30 minutes, but only if your meal or snack includes carbohydrates. The speed and level of the increase depend on the type of carbohydrates and other nutrients found in the foods you eat, as well as on your body's ability to manage your blood sugar levels.

Because my last hba1c count was 5.9.

I agree that they are a bit high. You did not mention this earlier. Also, you have not mentioned your fasting blood sugar levels in the morning. If like some others I know, you suffer from the "dawn phenomenon", then that could be the reason your overall average is higher than what it should have been. Sorry for my harsh words earlier.

Alcohol, as far as I know, drops blood sugar levels, doesn't raise them.

Your fasting blood sugar level is a tad high at 105. Anything above 100 is considered a bit dicey. You might be suffering from "dawn phenomenon".

Google "dawn phenomenon in diabetes" and you will get the information you want. Btw, I have not yet been knighted. So, please don't address me as "sir" :-)

Cheers !!

Dishant your problem no matter how hard you try to make it diabetes is clearly not working.

My suggestion :

1. Stop drinking alcohol this will reduce your hba1c from 5.9.

2. Don’t become a hypochondriac

Try quitting Alcohol.

Why give up a good thing ?? In moderation, alcohol is good for health.

Totally agree with Nilesh007. Indians tend to take a moralistic attitude towards the consumption of alcohol. And, women consuming even small amounts of alcohol is absolutely taboo to this male dominated society. Hopefully, things will change for the better, but I wouldn't bet too much on that happening any time soon.

you are neither diabetic nor prediabetic. Then why worry about it? Be happy and lead a normal life.
