Express React.js MySql data into variable

Hii! I was coding my web app when I ran into some trouble.

**I want to make it so this class will run only if “swishes” ,which is a value from a table in my MySQL db, is above 0.**

     var thepos = 1;
    export default class WishStick extends React.Component {
      render() {      
    var vars = standardwishitems(stars);
    const WishShow = WishResults(stars, vars[0]);
    const anim = pullanim(stars);
    giveItem(vars[1], thepos);
    thepos +=1;
            <Animation />


This is my server code :

const express = require('express');
const bodyParser = require('body-parser');
const cors = require('cors');
const app = express();
const mysql = require('mysql');
const {
} = require('mysql');
const { response } = require('express');

const db = createPool({
host:"My ip address :P",
user:"my username :P",
password:"my password :P",

const account = createPool({
host:"My ip address :P",
user:"my username :P",
password:"my password :P",

extended: true

app.get('/api/get', (req, res)=>{

const wishes = "SELECT swishes, pwishes FROM account WHERE id = 11";
account.query(wishes, (err, result) => {
});"/api/insert", (req, res)=>{

const pos = req.body.pos
const vnum = req.body.vnum
const additem = "INSERT INTO player.item (owner_id, pos, count, vnum) VALUES ('11', ?, '1', 
db.query(additem, [pos, vnum], (err, result) => {
    console.log(pos, vnum, err);
res.send("a mers");
app.listen(3001, () =>{
console.log("running on port 3001");

This is the result from /api/get :


I have already tried to search online, but every method I saw and tried took the query into array and mapped into h1 or li tags, which is not what I am trying to do. I am trying to get the value from “swishes” into a variable , let’s say wishNum, so then for example I can do if(wishNum > 0) {
return WishStick }else {alert(‘You do not have enough wishes!’)} .
Do you know how I may go about doing this?

Method 1

I finally got it guys! This is how you do it: => { s_wishes = parseInt(val.swishes)})

Example :

var s_wishes;
const { error, isLoaded, wishes } = this.state;
if (error) {
return <div>Error: {error.message}</div>;
} else if (!isLoaded) {
return <div>Loading...</div>;
} else { => { s_wishes = parseInt(val.swishes)});
