Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Can temporary hyperglycemia affect our body? For example, after two hours of breakfast, I had a sugar level of 260 mg/dL, and after one hour, the reading was 120 mg/dL. Does it affect my body, and how can I manage this problem?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern. A single instance may not affect as it could be because of diet. However, such repeated episodes must be examined and investigated to rule out any medical condition and treat them accordingly. Also, watch your diet. Taking a balanced nutritional healthy diet with an active lifestyle will help. The presence of a family history of diabetes mellitus also plays a role. Getting fasting blood sugar, post-prandial, HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin), liver and kidney function test, and CBC (complete blood count) tested from a laboratory is advisable. Hope this helps. Thank you and take care.
