I doubt that you had diabetes or not,I would say you were pro diabetes,
To confirm the diabetes blood sugar only is not enough, at that time weather you had GTT or Hb1C test or not.
Any how now you do not take tablet and strict diet control sugar,fat or carbohydrate
After one month go for blood,fasting and post lunch,if it is normal,do not worry about diabetes.
ok and bye.

hi k.k.nayak
welcome to health care magic
its good your tat your diabetes is under control.if u continue your brisk walking daily atleat for 30 mins and diet control and stress free life than need not need to go for medicine but every month you should go for fasting blood sugar plus fasting urine test along with post lunch blood sugar and post lunch urine test with routine blood pressure..
if your value are normal than well and fine if any fluacution seen in value do consult diabetologist or you can go for alternative treatment like homeopathy which will boost your immunity and will stay diabetes free rest of your life.
good luck live a healthy life with balanced diet and exercise.
