Brief Answer:
Yes, you can get sugar tested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

With those symptoms, its good idea to get your sugar levels checked.

A fasting and post meal sugar levels should be checked.In case they turn out high then you can test for HbA1c - this test gives idea about sugar levels raised for 3 months duration.

Hope this answers your query.Regards

Brief Answer:
Yes, after two hours past meal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Yes, blood sugar level is to be tested two hours after meal.

For knee I think you should get MRI done to see internal structure injury and effusion.After that treatment can be planned better.
