Hi Ramya,
your age is just 21 years and diagnosed DIabetes typeII,as you are overweight,may have insulin resistance and is there family history of Diabetes?are you taking any drugs for diabetes like Metformin or Insulin or just diet and exercise for control of Blood sugar Level.
You should see a Endocrinologist to find out that do you have MODY( Maturity onset Diabetes of young) or type I diabetes or any other endocrinal problem like thyroid problem?
Certainly you should take care of diet joust sprouts and carrots without meal is not advisable take help of dietician and continue exercises and proper therapy to control your blood sugar level.
You should also check FBS,PPBS & Hb A 1c .
Good Luck to you.
