I am 23 years old. My height is 6 feet. What should be the blood sugar. What is the reason of hair falling.
Regardless of your age, sex, body measurements - the blood sugar value considered normal are equal for all humans. Fasting blood sugar should never be greater than 126 mg/dl - beyond that is diabetes. If it is greater than 110 mg/dl - that makes it pre-diabetes. Your hair fall can be due to common factors like vitamin deficiencies, thyroid etc. You need to get it checked.

Now upper limit of normal fasting blood sugar is 99 mg %. 100 mg - 124 mg % is coded as prediabetic range. Two consecutive fasting samples showing 125 mg or more confirms diabetes mellitus. Accordingly. Your value falls in prediabetic range. This has been done to let the person realise that it is the time he needs to be cautious so as not to cross the fence and become a diabetic.

Your HBA1c only tells you the blood sugar control over 3 months. So if your blood sugars are normal and only your HBA1c is high I would recommend you to continue the same medications and repeat HBA1c after 3 months. About your weight, I would definetly recommend weight loss. Because the weight itself can increase your blood sugars.

Mr. Lybrate-user diabetes is diagnosed by looking at blood sugar level and hba1c%. Fasting >126 mg, after food >200 mg and hba1c%>6.5. Confirm diabetes. Urine sugar is not so important for diagnosis.
