A:   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

Your fasting blood sugar is high, that is suggestive of diabetes. But since your post prandial blood sugar is normal, you require further evaluation.
However, to confirm that, blood sugar estimation is required.
I would advise you to get following investigations done:
1. HbA1c
2. Fasting lipid profile
3. Serum creatinine
4. Urine for microalbumin, routine and microscopy.
5. ECG.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
