Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your blood sugar level is not bad --not considered diabetes.

Your hand symptoms are likely due to the carpal tunnel syndrome.

Nerve compression at the wrist can cause such symptoms commonly.

Repetitive activities like typing can precipitate this.

Wrist splints can be worn y night time during sleep to rest the nerves well.

Symptoms gradually improve.

Not likely serious.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

This can be from

Problems in the cervical spine: the neck

Diabetes usually also gets the feet

Heavy metal toxicity

liver or kidney problems

B vitamin deficiencies

hidden infection or malignancy

Other problems.

One can not simply assume what this is

It needs an exam from your doctor.

and possibly testing.
