Till now there is nothing I worry as ypu have been maintaining good sugar controls.You may need the anti diabetic medications again once you find that your fasting blood sugar levels are consistently hovering above 120 and PP levels above 170-180 range.
Till then carry on with your diet control and regular exercises.
Keep a constant monitoring of your blood sugar levels.
