A fasting and post parandial sugar level is better indicator of glycaemic control than random sugar. Glycaemic control of your treatment can be assessed by HbA1c level too which tells the status of glucose control during the last 6-8 weeks. A ideal treatment regime would be trial with lifestyle modification and diet management then oral hypoglycemic medicines and sulphonamides being the first choice and then insulin theraphy if glycaemic control is not good. Hope this information helps you. Have a nice day.
