I am sure you are aware that diabetes is a condition that remains for life time. If your sugar levels are under control it is only because of medication plus diet control, exercise and weight control. I am not aware whether you are observing all the above. But these are an essential part of the treatment. The moment you stop the drugs and and all the above the disease will go out of control. Hence the treatment is life long.

You have a high bmi. Though your sugars appear fine but would still like to see your hba1c along with your blood pressure. High bmi definitely makes you prone for metabolic complications like hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases along with both micro and macro vascular complications of diabetes. Best will be to exercise regularly, maintain a balanced diet and take proper medicines. Hope that solves your query.
