Brief Answer:
Need further evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.
Noted your concern.

Random blood sugar more than 200 with symptoms of hyperglycemia like increased thirst, hunger, weight loss, generalized weakness denote diabetes.

Presence of overweight or obesity, lack of physical activity, family history of diabetes increases the chances of diabetes.

I may suggest to do -
Fasting and post-prandial blood sugar level.
HbA1C.

Depending upon detailed physical examination and above test results appropriate opinion can be suggested.

Hope this helps you.

Regards,
Dr. Abhay Mali.

Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.

The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
