It is normal for PP sugar to be lower than fasting , because PP sugars depend on your diet and exercise/ activity after you eat. Hba1c is gold standard to diagnose diabetes and it shows 3 month average glucose control. Yours is within normal limits, nothing to worry
Next Steps
Recheck Hba1c in 6 months with fasting BSL in lab
