Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.
A single high reading of blood glucose levels do not stamp you as diabetic. You can have a glucose tolerance test and HbA1C to know for sure. Dietary modifications and regular exercise can ceratinly control your blood glucose levels.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
