Hi

From your tests you have tendency to having diabetes so I recommend taking Metformin, however you mentioned having BMI of 21 which is not the ideal way to know if you are at risk of becoming diabetic, instead I recommend measuring your waist hip ratio as you need to achieve a waist hip ratio of 0.9 or less to make sure you never become diabetic, in other words lose trunk weight and maintain current hip weight

Good Luck

Hi..
Right now you are not diabetic but is in a prediabetic phase..
So do not worry too much as stress can further be an additive factor to cause diabetes..
You need dietary modifications and regular exercise..
Consult a Diabetologist once for further follow up..

Hope this helps..

Hi,
These results mean you are marginal prediabetic, which means you can help yourself by starting to lose your extra abdominal fat, exercise regularly and take metformin regular basis.
We can not consider this a IGT but there is problem with glucose use by your body..
The hba1c is marginal also it should be lower by as i told you losing extra fat and exercising.
