Brief Answer:
you are in pre-diabetic stage now.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, greetings from HCM . I understand your concern.

At this stage you need to be just careful. You need to get HbA1c , thyroid profile, lipid profile and microalbuminuria done. As you are away from that magic figure of 126 and 200 you still need not start the drugs. But definitely you need the lifestyle changes . Please cut down your carbohydrates, take more of protein rich food. You need to take more of fiber rich diet.
Add more millets, oats, fruits and green leafy vegetables.

Divide your meal in to 4/5 small parts. With 2 snacks in between.

Do exercise at least walk for an hour a day

Please do contact us with the reports .

Good health and thank you.

Time to be regular sir ..

Detailed Answer:
Good evening sir, thank you for the kind words !!!

Good that your reports are OK as you told. But do share with us. 6.9% HbA1c is good control . but better to keep it below 6.5%sir. Which am sure you will achieve very soon.

Your weight is OK (height not mentioned) but try and maintain it.

You seems to more disciplined. I feel I need not tell you more about it. Move around a while in office. Take boiled sprouts, veggies, millets. Eat nuts for snacks, boiled fish and sea foods is good if you are OK with it.
Need you be stress free. Yoga, music, pranayamas all help.

Do contact us for more queries. thanks a lot . good health
