HI MAM..
EVEN THOUGH YOU DONT HAVE SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES , YOUR LAB VALUES CLEARLY SHOWS THAT YOU HAVE DIABETES , NO EXERCISE , OILY FOOD, STRESS THESE ARE SOME OF THE MODIFIABLE RISK FACTORS , SO YOU NEED NOT WORRY.
MAM YOU NEED GET SOME MORE INVESTIGATIONS BEFORE YOU START ON TREATMENT LIFE FUNDUS EXAMINATION, 24 HR URINE PROTEIN, URINE ROUTINE, THYROID PROFILE .
SINCE YOU ARE NOT SYMPTOMATIC , I WILL ADVICE YOU TO GO FOR LIFE STYLE MODIFICATION FOR A MONTH AND THEN REPEAT YOUR FASTING AND POST PRANDIAL SUGARS.
YOU CONTINUE UR BIRTH CONTROL PILLS ITS NOT A PROBLEM.
TAKE CARE, BYE
