Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I think its good your blood glucose levels are ok. Its healthy however to take Vitamins and consume a gluten free diet. I suggest you maintain these habits, include green vegetable sin your diet and a fruit XXXXXXX diet. Drink much water and do exercise.

An abdominal ultrasound is non invasive and could be informative. However, it would be better to get a good clinical examination by your medical doctor, to better orientate the laboratory and radiologic tests and interpretation of results.

Thanks and hope this helps. Feel free asking further questions if need be. Kind regards and wishing you good health.
