lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels (fasting 199 mg & PP 144 mg) are quite good. The other levels mentioned (fasting 154 mg) is high but PP 165 mg is good. The blood glucose levels from venous blood are about 11% lower than those from capillary blood (glucometer). Please check the HbA1c%, it should be <7 % or so. Which means her diabetes is under good control. There is no need to change any medication. Thanks.
