I am a 32 years old male, and my fasting blood sugar level is marked as 102 mg/dl and triglycerides 192 mg/dl and total cholesterol 209 mg/dl.
Are they high? What could be the reason for the high readings?
Do I have diabetes? Should I need medicines? What should I do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your sugar is normal, and it is not in a diabetic range. Fasting more than 126 mg/dl is diabetic, and more than 110 mg/dl is pre-diabetic.
Triglycerides and total cholesterol are mildly elevated and not worrisome. Since it is mildly elevated, likely cause is diet and inadequate exercises.
Since you are young and it is just a mild elevation, medicines are not recommended. You need to have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty, oily, fried, and high-calorie diets.
Also, have plenty of green leafy vegetables.
Avoid meat, alcohol, and smoking if any consumption is there.
Egg yolk should be avoided if egg consumption is there.
Should have regular exercises like brisk walking or running according to capacity.
You should get it repeated after eight weeks of lifestyle modifications and see for the response. LDL cholesterol is more important than total cholesterol, so should mention its value.
So, overall, these are minor abnormalities and not worrisome, can be well-taken care by a healthy lifestyle.
I hope this helps you.
Thank you doctor,
I have a little vision weakness since 20 years.

The vision weakness is not related to these test derangements or heart issues. It is better to visit an ophthalmologist for the same if not evaluated.
