Thanks for your question

As your fasting blood sugars and cholesterol are controlled without medications, therefore you need to consider lifestyle modifications by regular exercise, vegetables, fruits, low cholesterol diet and low carbohydrate diet.

As you are hypertensive and taking medicine which contains hydrochlorthiazide, you need to change that as recent studies suggest that using certain blood pressure lowering medications and cholesterol lowering medications increases the risk of diabetes

Hope that answers
