Not only your blood sugar levels are high but your lipid profile is out of range.
While high blood sugar levels are responsible for micro vascular complications,high lipid levels contribute towards atherosclerosis and ultimately macro vascular complications.
Remember 80% diabetics die of macro vascular complications.
You should consult your doctor and get a revised prescription for anti diabetic drugs as well as get some statins added.
Along with proper medications do regular exercises and reduce your weight by calorie restriction also.
Avoid sweets,fried foods,junk foods and colas.
Take more of green vegetables and fresh fruits except mango,grapes,banana,cheeku.
