Today I checked my blood sugar level but shocked after seeing the result ,it is very high 200+ and hb1ac is 7.0 ..I don't have any symptoms or weight loss or anything but these values giving me tension.

Please suggest a best glucometer (low cost, good accuracy).

Also please give me tips to reduce it to normal level.  pray sob

Hba1c is a better indicator of your blood glucose levels than a normal routine blood glucose test as it tells your the blood glucose levels over the last few months (RBC's have a life span of 120 days so roughly a 4-months indicator) while a routine blood glucose test will tell you the levels at the moment when the sample is collected. For the latter, the glucose level varies depending upon when was the last time you ate (empty stomach or post-prandial). 

Hba1c levels above 6.5% is indicative of diabetes. If you are still not convinced with the test results try to get another test done from a different laboratory (both hba1c & routine blood glucose that includes fasting and PP).

In my experience the spot check glucometers are not very convincing even though you see them.in routine use at hospitals and clinics - probably cause of either instrumentation errors or strip loading error.

Carb intake is not directly related to TGL and cholesterol levels.
Less Oil Consumption
Less Packaged Drink and Food Consumption
Workout and exercise for 30minutes-45minutes for 1 year + Intermittent Fasting + Fortnightly Fasting
Long way to go.

For cholesterol, I started taking Himalaya guggulu tablets , now my cholesterol level is 156 and TGL is 198!
