Mr. M s sodhi, you have mentioned fasting sugar level as 130 - 180 mg, which appears pretty high. What is the recent pp level? hba1c% looks good. When does the sugar level go down is there a specific pattern or time of the day? your lipid profile details are not given fully. Important ones are total cholesterol, hdl, ldl and triglyceride, you have not mentioned those. Tsh level is also high, it should be below 5 mill units / ml. Are you taking any medications for hypothyroidism and dyslipidemia? plus also let me know your dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can give specific suggestions.
