Am i diabetic based on this result?

I generally test for blood sugar every year . Fasting results vary from 90 to 108. This time I have done fasting as well as PP. Fasting(12 hrs +) result show 120 and same day PP (after 2hrs of meal ) results shows 87. Is it correct result, whether I am diabetic ?? How should I confirm.

do not worry,you are not diabetic.it happens at time when your fasting sugar is high and pp is low,if you are very much anxious you can get your HBA1C done which will reflect your last 3 months average sugar,so it will clear doubt.you can give blood any time for this.buy

Hi. Your PP seems to be ok but your fasting levels are indicative of prediabetes...a stage before onset of diabetes. Please get a repeat fasting done, as anyways no one puts a diagnosis on one reading only. Get the repeat results analysed by a doctor. Of course you can also do a HBa1C, but fasting sugar and PP are very important
