Feel Sleepy and Lethargic at daytime difficult to live normal life

Dear Dr,

My age is 30 years.
I always feel lethargic and sleepy at day time (mostly 11am - 4pm),
nighttime sleep is about 8-9 hours.
I feel very difficult to concentrate and comprehend and at times talk properly during that period.

Body energy does not feel much of a problem its most mental energy . I look bodily fit.

I feel that mind is generally not alert fully and I lack its presence most of the times.
Because of this i forget things also. Most of the times I do things without fully alert mind.
Alertness problem is lesser in evenings and night.

I have social phobia also. get nervous easily in meetings . not able to collect my thoughts and speak. at that time I am even not aware clearly what i have to speak and what I am speaking.

I try meditation also. sometime when I do meditation in morning , I feel day time lethargy more. may be because I have utilised my mental capacity.
But meditation helps a lot in giving alertness and clarity for a short period although.

I am experiencing this problem from a very long time 8-9 years.


my gulucose tolerance test was aslo not good.
Result
Fasting 89 mg/dl
After 2 hrs 146mg/dl

I need some experts advice .Please help.
