Brief Answer:
Normal blood sugar.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to HCM,

113,101 and 107 blood sugar figures are completely normal.

The normal range of random blood sugar (RBS) is between 70 to 150 mg% and the normal range for fasting blood sugar (FBS) is 70 to 120 mg%.

Considering your blood sugar readings,you do not have diabetes.

For anxiety,you may need to take anti-anxiety drugs (alprazolam 0.5mg) with written prescription of a physician since it is a prescription based drug.

Anti-anxiety medication (ex.Recita forte) would also be helpful to reduce stress level which is also a prescription based drug.

Take at least 8 hours sleep in night.Also,do not worry about high sugar.

Let me know if you need more help or clarifications.

Regards,

Dr.Sandip Kabra

Thank u for your valuable answer. My height is 5'10 & my weight is 75. from 2 yrs. am working in software company.I have anxiety problem from 5-6 years. I used diazepam for some days & stopped since they are mood elevators.
I am not having proper sleep from getting anxiety disorder.from 2-3 days i am getting frequent urination and checked blood sugar level.
On first day i had 145 as sugar level after 1 hr. Of heavy meal(rice) on which i was completely fasting for day time.after 2 hrs. It's became 130.from next day readings were 113,101 in the early morning with fasting,107 as after 1 hr. Of lunch.

Brief Answer:
You do not have diabetes or even pre-diabetes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome again,

145 blood sugar after having meal is also normal with your other readings (130,101,107),so you do not have diabetes or even pre-diabetes.Better to remove this fear.

Your frequent urination is likely because of your anxiety and it has nothing to do with diabetes at least in your case.

For anxiety disorder,I would suggest you to see psychiatrist who may prescribe you tab.Paxil (paroxetine) or Recita forte (escitalopram) which is a prescription drugs in the Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors group and used to treat to treat anxiety disorders.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Today again i have checked my nlood glucose levels before dinner and it was 107 & after 1 hour of the dinner and it was 136. I had 1 onion dosa,200ml of carrot juice as dinner.

As u suggested, i will consult psychiatrist for my anxiety problem.

So, i don't need to worry about diabetes or pre-diabetes right? Frequent urination & thirsty feeling from last 3-4 days are because of anxiety?

Once again thank u very much and awaiting your response.

Brief Answer:
No diabetes or prediabetes

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the feed back,

107 blood sugar is normal and 136 post 1 four of meal is also completely normal.

Frequent urination and thirst feeling could be related to anxiety for which psychiatric consultation would be helpful.

Let me know if you have anymore doubts and if not then please close the discussion with feed back rating.

I was so afraid and did blood sugar test before lunch and it was 111 & after 2 hrs. having biryani and it was only 110,which is normal. I checked my BP and it was 130/90.

Can u please suggest what is the problem for this continuous numbness for last 24 hours and solution for it?

Brief Answer:
likely related to alcohol

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome again,

This numbness might be related to your alcohol ingestion or initiation of brisk walking but there is no need to worry as your blood pressure and sugar are completely normal.

You should drink plenty of water with fruit juices for couple of days and most probably your numbness problem will also go away.There is no need to take any medication for that.

Also,better to avoid alcohol.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your reply.

As you suggested i am drinking more water. As i need to sit for long hours(minimum 8 hrs. daily) in office today i found my legs got swell. I am working from 2 years in software field. Before this it was never happened except 2-3 times when i travelled in bus for very long journey.

Could you please suggest in this case? Is this because of lack of blood flow to feet in sitting position?

Thanks & Regards,

Brief Answer:
wait for couple of days

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome again,

If there is mild swollen legs and if the swelling goes by movement then I do not think there is anything to be concerned much.It is likely related to long time sitting at once place and very unlikely due to some blood flow issue. Means I will not think above this possibility right now.

However,if it persist longer or if the swelling is significant then I would suggest you to see physician for further evaluation.

Your doctor may suggest some routine blood works,serum protein level,kidney function tests after carefully examination of both legs.

Doppler of both legs may also be done if above investigations remain inconclusive.

At present,wait for couple of days and check if swelling subsides by it's own or it persists.

Regards,

Dr.Sandip Kabra

Hi XXXXXXX

My office hours are 09:30am - 06:30pm. Yesterday before coming to office my legs were normal.after 2-3 hours i experienced some pressure on thies where my contact with chair will end, and i checked my legs and feet by removing shoe and they got swollen mildly. again in the evening before starting from office i checked and they were in swollen stage only.

But after going to home(30 min. journey) i removed my shoe and they became normal. yesterday night i checked my blood urea and the result was 31.6mg/dl(range was mentioned in report as 15-45), serum creatinine level and it was 0.8mg/dl(range was mentioned in report as 0.5-1.2).

My numbness also got reduced somewhat and i am experiencing burning sensation on my feet and it's increased after wearing shoe. Is this because of brisk walking did for long distance suddenly.

These are my symptoms now:
mild swelling of legs while sitting in office, which are becoming normal after sometime
burning sensation on feet
mild numbness, comparatively less to the previous
mild sensation like pressing with needles at middle point between my knee and ankle(when i am sitting in office chair), i am sensing like i got some mild damage in my legs because of that brisk walking.

Please let me know the reason for these symptoms and do i need to do anything?

Thanks for your valuable time and precious suggestions.

XXXX

Brief Answer:
Likely due to brisk walking

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome again,

As I also told earlier,numbness and mild swollen legs symptoms are could also be related to initiation of brisk walking which we may expect to get resolved within 2 or 3 days.

Also,your kidney function tests (urea,creatinine) are completely normal,so I do not think there is anything concerned here much.

You should drink more water with electrolytes and wait for couple of more days.

In case if problem persist then I would suggest you to see physician for further evaluation.

Dr.Sandip Kabra
