Today I made a a normal blood sugar test 2 hours after my meal I found it 264 after the test. I would like to know what should I do

Two abnormal laboratory tests are enough to diagnose (Hb A1c % 7.06 Blood sugar of 264 are both abnormal).

You had new onset diabetes, conformed. You need to do these test:
1. eye screen
2. foot screen
3. total cholesterol profile
4. Urine micro albuminuria or spot protein/creatinine ratio
5 start medication.
6 make sure your blood pressure is normal
7. Dietary consultation for diabetic diet

Welcome to this forum.

I agree with Dr. Jagdish's answers. However I would like to add few points.

The tests Dr. Jagdish recommended are done on a regular basis for all the diabetics whether blood sugar is under control or not. For eg eye screening once a year, foot examination is also once a year, chol profile once in three months are needed.

Take care

You must see a diabetologist because you are diabetic and you need treatment as early as possible to minimize the risk of complications
