Brief Answer:
Consult a diabetologist

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

If this is the first time you got your sugars checked, then I would recommend a visit to a diabetologist.

Only sugar levels are not enough to choose medication. Also many other blood tests are required to rule out complications of diabetes like renal damage, eye damage etc.

Also physical examination is necessary to choose a better medication. With the sugar levels you have it would be good to start you on a combination drug.
