Hallo Concerned
Your blood sugar does not seem to be very high but you may have insulin resistance so please ask your doctor to check your fasting insulin levels. You may also need to check your HB to exclude anemia and your thyroid hormone levels to exclude underactive thyroid. You may also have an allergy causing the itchy eyes.
