Hello,

Your fasting readings on 1 day was slightly high, but your random readings are fine.

YOu could ask your Dr. to check HBa1c if you are really worried. A normal HbA1c is in the range of 4 - 5.0, but most doctors will tell you up to 5.7 or 6 is still ok.

Just so you know, normal non-diabetic blood sugars are usually < 95 for fasting and in the range of 80 - 120 after eating.

Hope this helps.

Hi there!

The glucometer readings do not point towards diabetes being a causes, while other possibilities of increased urination such as GU infections, inflammations, increased fluid intake, hormonal/ endocrine issues, stress/ anxiety etc. may need to be considered. I would suggest considering an evaluation by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
