hi madam,
please continue all those medicines but donot worry about your sugar. To tell you that its stil within the normal range. anything below 126 for a fasting sugar level is normal. it is on the high normal range probably because of some sugar rich food you had the previous night. so dont worry, you are definitely not a diabetic.

Apparently sugar levels appear normal with this reading . Basically see to it which time you have taken a reading.

please do following assessment:

1. Blood sugar ( fasting , PP)
2. till you get proper lab reports; continue with your same schedule of diet and medications.
3. certainly, being overweight, taking statin; you need to control cholesterol levels.
4. this will reduce your further risk.

for any further querries ;
