I was suffering from high blood sugar & high blood pressure (was found 110/210) in last january 2018. At that time post lunch sugar was 211 & hba1c as 6.5 after that periodically I have consulted doctor & have taken treatment. No tablet for sugar in between but taken medicines for high blood pressure. Recently since last 2 months I have started taking tablet of metformin hydrochloride tablet ip 250 mg once in the morning. 15 days back I checked my sugar level & found 108 fasting & 145 post lunch but hba1c as 7.9. Now blood pressure is 100/140 my father was suffering from high blood sugar. I am regularly doing 2-4 k s walking & cycling. Gym at home for 20-30 minutes 5 days in a week. Avoiding extra sugar intake through tea, sweets etc. Other dosage are amlip 5 (amlodipine) twice a day & rose day a10 once in the evening. Pls suggest further treatment & line of action to maintain sugar level.

First of all now 250 sugar is normal, read the medical journal of 2018 uk. So you do not need all those medicine. Better to modify your life style and food habit may help you for long run.
Still criteria is same fasting blood sugar should be 100 around and post meal 150 hba1c less than 7 as hba1c is reflection of past 3 month there fore this time your hba1c is high. If you maintain above level will surely get target hba1c your values 108 and 145 are fine. Maintain this levels.
Fasting & pp blood sugar are normal. Continue same diet, exercise schedule and medicine for diabetes. Bp 140/100 is slightly high which needs more medicine or change of present one. Please consult your physician who will suggest you according to your clinical profile.
Hba1c is last average of 3 months sugar. So may be because of this reason your hba1c is still high. Do not worry it will also settle. Do not leave sugar medicines. and have a strict control on your diet n exercise regularly.
