    I'm feeling very tired at the end of the day, though it doesn't involve any much physical activity, in fact I feel giddy & pale when I eat any sugary / high carb diet, am I pre-diabetic? or how can I get it checked?

    Hello @raokanti First call of action is to visit your GP, run through your symptoms with them and they can decide if further investigations can be done, you may need a blood test to determine what's happening with your blood glucose levels.

    The only way to know if you are pre-diabetic is to have a blood test.
    However, there may be other reasons for the symptoms you mention.

    I recommend making an appointment to visit your doctor.
