Thanks for posting your query.

Your TMT report reveals that you have developped myocardial ischemic changes. Your HbA1C level is 8 which indicates that your diabetes is not yet well controlled.
Ideally it should have been between 6-7.

Now in this situation I advised to go for another test i.e. serum lipid profile which should be done with 12 hour fasting. In your case there is high chance of getting deranged lipid profile.

You do continue gluconorm forte 2 gram along with istavel 50 mg for diabetes management. Along with this you should have the following:

1. Life style modification in the form of regular exercises, 1 hour walking in the morning,
2. Diet control specially calorie and protein restriction, avoid spicy foods, red meat, junk food and fast food,
3. You should have to add the following medications -
a. Tablet aspirin 75 mg once daily,
b. Tablet clopidogrel 75 mg once daily,
c. Tablet atorvastatin 20 mg one tablet at night before going to bed
4. If there is any form of chest tightness or pain you should consult your cardiologist immediately,
5. You should have fasting and post-prandial blood sugar (FBS and PPBS) atleast once a month,
6. You should have HbA1C estimation once in every 3 months,
7. You should have an echocardiography every 6 months,
8. You should have serum lipid profile right now after 12 hour fasting,
9. Check your blood pressure twice in a month and if not controlled then change the mediacations or increase the dose by consulting a cardiologist.

Hope I have answered you. If you have further queries you can write back to me freely. Kindly write a review on my answer.

Wishing you good health,
