Yes, the level is on bit on higher side.

IGT (Impaired glucose test) may help to reach a conclusion.

But this does not diagnose diabetes. Get yourself Hba1c done. It shall help to come to a conclusion.

Perfect number for Diabetes. Fasting for 14hours definitely is a fasting blood sample that is taken and the number falls under the diabetic range. YOu are a DIABETIC.
