Hello and welcome to HCM
The blood glucose level post prandial- 370 mg/dl and fasting blood glucose- 250 mg/dl is dedinitely diabetes mellitus.
You need to visit your physician for prescription of oral hypoglycaemic drugs.

Besides medication there are many other aspects of management of diabetes.
Diabetes is a systemic disease thet is it affects all organs of the body especially eyes (retina), kidneys, nerves and small blood vessels.

You need to take proper care of your feet because healing is delayed in DM and pain receptore aalso become weak due to involvement of nerves.
Get eye examination (fundus examination) to see the status of retina and get it repeated at an interval of 6 monthes.
An urine examination for proteins (microproteinuria).

Life style modification by reducing starch rich foods in your diet.
Increase consumption of fresh vegetables and fibre in diet.
Take regular exercise.

For more details consult your physician (diabetologist preferably).

Take care
