Thanks for your query.

Important aspects of your query are:
•     44 year old male
•     FBSL 91, PPBSL 120 and Sr uric acid 5.4 mg/dl
•     Worry related to BSL

Normal range:
•     Fasting Blood Sugar Level (FBSL): The “fasting blood glucose” test must have the individual fasting for at least 8 hours. Normal levels for this test are 70 to 100 mg/dL.
•     Post Prandial Blood Sugar Level (PPBSL): Level higher than 140 mg/dL can indicate prediabetes. A level above 200mg/dL indicates Type-1 or Type-2 diabetes and suggests further tests.
•     Serum Uric Acid: The reference range of uric acid is 3.6-8.3 mg/dL

So no need to worry. Your all tests are within normal limit.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
