I am 50 years old. I have done my sugar test last week which showed high blood sugar value and high cholesterol. My doctor advised me to test because I had irritation while urinating. My doctor prescribed me to take Cumet-SR tablets. My weight is 85 kg and height 5.8 feet. I have few questions regarding this. Is this sugar value bad? Is drinking alcohol responsible for high blood sugar? Which fruits and meals can I take to control my blood sugar? Should I reduce my weight? My cholesterol level is little bit high. Can you suggest a diet for that? Is oats good for controlling blood sugar? I have attached my blood reports for your reference. Please help.
