I got diabetes

# Hello, Thanks for the query.
I have seen the details including the report sent. Your HbA1c% 7.3% which is a bit high. Ideally it should be < 6.5% . Fasting glucose should be < 100 mg & PP 150 o 170 mg. Another important aspect is that your BMI (Body Mass Index) is 31.41 kgs/ Sq meter(Normal < 23 kgs/Sq meter) Your ideal body weight should be about 77 kgs, which means you have an excess of over 27kgs.
There is no mention of your present treatment, so difficult give any suggestions.
Another important aspect is that your two liver enzymes are quite high suggesting presence of fatty liver.
Considering these aspects it is necessary for you to adapt a modified lifestyle, which means : do regular exercise, take a diet that is having just adequate calories based on your ideal body weight not on present one, (as there is a need to reduce weight),
Since there is no mention of dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, I am unable to give any suggestions. So please come back with all the relevant details, then I will be able to give specific treatment and all the instructions needed to be followed. I await your response. Thanks
