Detailed Answer:
Hi again,
Thanks for the follow up,

I have gone through your attached reports,

The one main parameter that demands immediate care and proper management is the blood sugar levels. HbA1c of 10 is very high and shows poor control with the medication currently prescribed for you. I would suggest you to consult with a diabetologist and discuss about the change in the medications. Persistent high blood sugar levels will cause harm to the bodily mechanisms.

You also have mild iron deficiency, and I would suggest it best for you to start on oral iron supplements for a period of 1-2 months. This would be enough to replenish the iron stores. Also consume plenty of iron rich foods like green leafy vegetables, dates, gooseberry.

Lipase value is also mildly elevated, may indicate any underlying pancreatitis. If you seem to have any symptoms like pain over the right side of the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, I would suggest you to consult with a surgeon and proceed for any further investigations if needed.

Rest of the parameters are normal.

I hope this helps.
Please feel free to discuss further

I am a 24 year old female and do horseback riding. I ve been having some issues with cracking sounds coming from my knees - and sometimes pain when it occurs - whenever I climb up stairs. I m also unable to keep my knees bent only slightly (standing upright but knees bent) for a long period of time, before pain sets in. I ve been riding since 2007 and have never had this problem before, it only became apparent recently. Could it be because of an iron deficiency? I had to take iron supplements a few years ago for a period of 3 months and picked up some more this morning because a few of the other symptoms I m experiencing also seem to point to iron deficiency. Kind regards
