Hi

Your sugar levels are raised and are not in good control. This is not reason for high concern but morbid obesity is.

Check for your lipid profile levels once and put your height, weight, waist and hip circumference valuse. This will help us in assisting you for further line of treatment. I personally dont prefer bariatric surgery.

Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any further queries and I will be glad to answer them.

Regards
I find this answer helpful
