hi

welcome to healthcare magic forum
you have high sugar level and you have diabetes
type 1 or 2 is decide by the history
type i has
-sudden onset
-occur in any age
-thin body
-high chance of complication
-autoantibody and
-low insulin level
it is less common
while in type 2 it is opposite
if you want to detect type you should do test for autoantibody
better to consult doctor

i hope i answered your question

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi ram.. the above blood glucose level shows that you are diabetic..,
But to say type one or type 2 your age is needed, Type 1 DM is common in young less than 35 years, more than 35 to 40 yrs is considered type 2, also with family history of DM...
Hope I have answered your question..

Takecare...

hi well come to Hcm.
You are definately Diabetic. Looking to your report if not with any diabetes treatment
You are likely to be type 2 diabetic. You have not mentioned your age. Type one
is insulin dependent. in your diabetes looks controlable with drugs only. Thanks

Hello Ram,

You are probably a Type 2 Diabetic considering your blood sugars, age and family history. Kindly mention your weight and height to confirm our assumptions.

You must consult your local Physician or diabetologist for further management.
