Diabetologist Dr. Suyash Sharma's  Response
Fasting sugar is ok according to ADA(American Diabetes Association) guidelines. Range for Fasting Blood Glucose is 90-130 mg/dl.

Your PP Sugar seems to be on higher side, You should modify your diet and reduce carbohydrates in Lunch(Like no of Chapatis, Potato or Rice). If this doesnt help then ask your doctor to add Voglibose in lunch time. you must check PP dinner sugar also as it might also be high.

Your cholesterol parametes are ok except for LDL. Once again diet and exercise is the first modality to control dylsipidemia(high cholesterol).
