Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. You fasting level is good. But your post meal is showing mild increase.
2. Serum cholesterol is mildly elevated.
3. You need not start on any medication for diabetes or increased cholesterol. Weight reduction, aerobic exercises and diet control is necessary.
4. Continue medications for hypertension
Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.

hi, My name is Khush Suri,Male,43 years old;weight 76 kg;height 5 6 was feeling weak since 2 or 3 months; so my friend recommended for blood sugar test; on 11.06.2010 I undergo the same; which reveals that the fasting - 100 mg/dl and P.P. - 223.8 mg/dl. I didnot consult any doctor or take any medication. But from the very day I quit sugar 100% and start eating 3 flakes of garlic empty stomach; bitter gourd;jamun and its seeds; and fenugreek seeds one tsp in morning and evening. I seek your personal advice and medication.
