blood sugar reading is 211 before fasting. my father is 63 years old.
Hi dear.Thanks for posting on HCM. Fasting blood sugars are ideally below 130 and post prandial blood sugars(2 hr post food) should be below 200.Thus your father fasting sugars are pretty high.I were check if he has been taking the right medication at appropriate time.If he is not a diabetic he needs to be started on treatment.Consult physician to evaluate further.Reply with thanks if you like.
