Thanks for posting your query.

With the available described details, blood sugar appears to be absolutely normal and you are not in diabetic range.

Diabetes is diagnosed when fasting blood sugar is > 126 mg% and postprandial blood sugar > 200 mg%.

Random blood sugar at any time must be above 200 mg% for considering as diabetes.

So your blood sugar is within normal limit and you should take precautions so that you won't develop diabetes in future as you have strong positive family history.

You should continue your physical activity and should remain in touch with regular check up with your treating family physician.
You should also go for lipid profile, renal function test, electrocardiography and urine routine microscopic examination.

Take care,

Dr. Mayank Bhargava
