Vinod, if you have been diagnosed with diabetes you need to always keep it under control with diet, exercise and medication. Your fasting and HbA1c is within limit.But PPBS should not go over 135. Do this by reducing one portion of starch intake at breakfast time. If you send me a food diary I can assess it and modify if needed. Please increase your exercise to 3 km 5 times a week. Yes, you should avoid oily foods.
