Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a great news that you recovered and doing well after COVID-19 infection. Considering the current medical reports, your HbA1c is suggestive that you are in pre-diabetic stage. And your fasting sugar is absolutely normal. You do not need to start any medicine for diabetes. Sometimes recent infection may also lead to high sugar levels.

Repeat tests after 1 month. And from now on I would suggest you adapt more healthier lifestyle choices. Good nutrition diet, regular exercises, quit smoking if doing are the basic ways. Take care of yourself.


Investigations to be done:

FBS/PPS
hbA1C
Lipid profile
Vitamin D levels

Probable diagnosis:

?Pre diabetes

Treatment plan:

Healthy life style modifications.

Preventive measures:

Achieve 5 % weight loss from current status and maintain.

Regarding follow up:

After 1 month with reports.
