Hello doctor,

I am 43 year old. My weight is 83 kg, and I do not have blood pressure. My fasting sugar is 102 and post prandial is 87. Why is it so? It is happening for the last three years. I am not able to reduce weight inspite of all exercises, and I eat just regular home meals with calorie consciousness. I am currently on 10 mg statin alternate days for cholesterol. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are a few reasons.

1. Pre-diabetes can have such results which means you are more prone to get diabetes. Increased PPBS (postprandial blood sugar) means your pancreas is working very hard to reduce your sugar. It is overworking where it will deplanes beta cells in pancreas soon (beta cells present in the pancreas secrete insulin to maintain blood sugar).

2. Wrong blood report, take the report in a NABL (national accreditation board for testing and calibration laboratories) lab. Regular exercise and diet will help you. Meet a nutritionist and get a diet chart. Get a personal fitness trainer.

If these are not working to reduce your weight, then we can think of blood investigation and medical treatment.

I hope I have answered your query. If you have further doubts, I would be happy to help you.
