Dear sir you sugar may be impaired or you may have reactive hypo glycaemia. please do a glucose challenge test or a Glucose tolerance test to find out whether your sugar is well regulated or goes out of control beyond the renal threshold.
With your age you may need a diabetic screening which may be a Hb A1 c WHICH WILL SHOW YOUR AVERAGE GLUCOSE LEVELS FOR THE PREVIOUS THREE MONTHS PERIOD
