Hi, Your sugar level is under control, as far as fasting sugar is concern. But after meal, sugar above 10.0 is a matter of concern. I advise you to start exercise and diet control after consulting with a dietician. if not respond in 3-6 months, I like to start medicine.
As you have burning sensation on toes, it need to be evaluated, it may be due to diabetes or any other reason.
Hope this helps and provides answers to your question.
