Hello, Normal blood blood glucose should be fasting 70 to 110 mg, PP <140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9. If you are having blood glucose 500 mg, means, it is an alarming situation. This can lead to serious consequences affecting eyes, peripheral blood vessels, lower limbs, and heart. You may not feel any particular symptom that does not mean you are normal. Please get properly examined and start treatment immediately. Thanks.
No details about medications and investigations etc. You also are grossly over weight. If blood sugar is 500 mg it is certainly alarming. You should also get your HbA1c done. If it is above 6 you are in trouble. Many persons with diabetes have no complaints initially. Uncontrolled Diabetes silently affects brain, heart, kidney, nerves, eyes etc. There is delay in healing of wound. Any sickness will not respond to usual medication unless blood sugars are under control. Hence it is a must that you should be under direct observation and treatment of a Physician or diabetologist. Proper follow up and review is necessary always. Neglect of Diabetes has very damaging effect on body.
Hi, Blood sugar may fluctuate for many reasons like food, activity etc. Please make sure that your test was done accurately and do a test again after a week. Consult a doctor before making any conclusion, it can be a technical glitch in your report. But if your blood sugar is high don't leave it unattended. Please note that most of the people are diagnosed with diabetes when blood test is done for some other diseases. Diabetes may not show any evident symptoms for a long time but will be putting extra load on vital organs like kidneys, liver etc. It is always better to prevent diseases than curing them later.
