User:i didn't get this "fasting blood sugar"
Doctor:First we have to rule out diabetes.
Doctor:So we need to do a blood sugar test.
Doctor:You can do it in fasting state and then 2 hours after taking food.
Doctor:fasting state means, after having dinner, then do not have anything else.
Doctor:Then, in the morning before having anything, you will have to give your blood for testing.
User:so i need to mention them any specific test
Doctor:Yes. you need to tell them, 'Fasting Blood Sugar' and 'Post Prandial Blood Sugar'
User:ok doctor
Doctor:Post Prandial blood Sugar- It is the test taken 2 hours after having your breakfast.
Doctor:The other cause as I said can be due to increased drinking of water.
Doctor:If there is no diabetes, it is good to drink more water and have more urinations.
Doctor:If you are feeling difficulty at night, you can try drinking water less after 6 pm.
