Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on HCM. Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that your mothers sugar level is raised .FBS should be less than 110 mg/dl . Probabably she is having diabetes . But one reading is not conclusisve . Atleast two readings should be there . I will advise you to get Hb A1c done that will reveal sugar control for 3 months . FBS ,PPBS at least two readings should be taken . You will need to show her to a diabetologist for complete evalaution . Take care. Dr. Shruti
