Thanks for your query.

I presume your blood sugar level is Random blood sugar level, which is normal.

We need to recheck with Fasting blood sugar level and Post prandial blood sugar level to decide about diabetic status.

Do you have any family history of diabetes?
I would also like to know your height and weight.
Please take care of your diet, regular exercise and periodic medical checkup and you need not to worry about diabetes at present.

Please recheck your blood sugar and let me know the result of tests to guide you further.

Hope this helps and if you have any query please feel free to revert to me, I will be happy to help you.

Thanks for your follow up.

It is normal to have dropped blood sugar level after 1 hour as in response to meal our body secrets insulin, which keeps blood sugar level to normal range.
You should not worry; these blood sugar levels are fine.
Please let me know result of FBS and PPBS, and keep me informed about progress.
Hope I have answered your query, if there is any doubts please revert to me.
