Brief Answer:
Diabetes and dislipidemia suggested;

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back!!
From the reports attached; the glucose level ( fasting and postprandial) is too high and needs to be treated immediately. To decide rather she needs 2 or more antidiabetics medications she need to check HbA1c level that shows the mean glucose level of the last three months. It is more accurate than a single glucose level.
There is a urinary infection too that has probably raised the blood sugar and should also be treated. A culture of the morning urine sample will help to find the proper antibiotic.
The lipid profile is also altered, antilipemiant (simvastatine 40 mg) will be also prescribed by her treating physician.
Of course the diet will help also to reduce the blood sugar. A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that's naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone.
Make the calories count with these nutritious foods:

-Healthy carbohydrates. Focus on the healthiest carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils) and low-fat dairy products.
-Fiber-rich foods. Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat XXXXXXX
-Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides.

-''Good" fats. Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats can help lower your cholesterol levels. These include avocados, almonds, pecans, walnuts, olives, and canola, olive and peanut oils. But don't overdo it, as all fats are high in calories.

She should be under close control of a physician, who will perform a detailed clinical examination and prescribe the treatment.

Hope i have been helpful.
Wish her good health.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
