Diabetes Or Prediabetes?
I Deni Age 36 years often BAK every hour or 2 hours after checking Urine, cholesterol and blood sugar When getting the following results:
Thank you for the question.
Normal blood sugar levels are less than 200 mg / dL when not fasting (blood sugar during and blood sugar 2 hours after eating) and less than 124 mg / dL while fasting for at least 9 hours. Meanwhile, normal cholesterol levels are less than 200 mg / dL. This cholesterol check should ideally be done after fasting for 9 hours or more. Therefore, before interpreting the results of your blood sugar and cholesterol tests, it needs to be clarified first, when the examination is done, whether during fasting or not? Are other tests also carried out, such as LDL, HDL, triglyceride, and so on?
Frequent urination is one of the most common causes of diabetes. In addition, frequent urination in men can also occur due to urinary tract infections, urinary tract stones, kidney disorders, overactive bladder, prostate enlargement, excessive anxiety, excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol, drug side effects, and so on.
If your blood sugar and cholesterol tests are done without fasting, and without other checks as mentioned above, often this is not enough to conclude whether you really have diabetes and / or high cholesterol, or not. Therefore, given your age is still relatively young, the doctor will recommend that you modify your lifestyle first, before deciding to give medicine. Because, the administration of drugs to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels is not without side effects.
In order for your blood sugar and cholesterol levels to return to normal and your urination problems to improve, it is recommended that you:
Maintain ideal body weight
Exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes every day
Eat lots of vegetables, whole grains, fruit, water, fish oil, and other foods that are rich in antioxidants
Don't overeat foods that contain cholesterol, trans fats, saturated fats, and simple glucose
Get enough rest and don't think too much
Avoid cigarettes, alcohol, and do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice
Improve the cleanliness of your sex organs
Don't like to hold back urination
If frequent urination that you experience occurs purely because of high levels of sugar in your blood, then of course, after your blood sugar returns to normal, then your urination pattern will also improve.
If with the steps above your complaint does not improve, don't hesitate to go back to your doctor or doctor for internal medicine to be treated further huh ..
I hope this helps.
