You need to do a fasting and post prandial blood glucose level too. And going by your hba1c you need to go on medications for diabetes. Kindly get in touch with your local physician or diabetologist at the earliest.

Hello,, I went through your query, there are two tests done to know the suger levels in body,, one is fasting blood suger and another Is postprandial blood suger(ppbs) . (2hrs after food), if your fasting blood suger Is, 160-170, even after excersie and diet then you need to take medicines, if it is ppbs, which is 160-170,then no beer to worry,, do cycling for 20min in the evening along with regular exercise, avoid sweets and rice,, it will come well under control. And hba1c, shows sugar control form past 3 or 4months,, so if fbs and ppbs are under control then don't worry.
