After going through your reports I feel that your sugar levels are definitely slightly deranged.
To prevent longterm micro as well as macro complications,your sugar levels should be tightly controlled.
I advocate use of medicine like METFORMIN 500 mg twice daily.
Talk to your physician regarding this.
