Hi, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Sir, Please do remember once you are diabetic, You have to continue medication. only then the blood sugar level will be under control.
So, now have Fasting and post prandial blood sugar levels and HbA1c checked.

Then after consulting a diabetologist or writing to us, Get correct dosages of either insulin or Drugs and continue the same.
Please don't neglect.
Hope this guides you. Thank you
