Hi Jskribe,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You do not have diabetes.
The blood sugar should be tested in the morning in fasting state when you have not taken anything to eat. It is typically done before breakfast.
If your blood sugar level is of early morning then it is called pre-diabetes.
Exercise and weight reduction and avoiding smoking and alcohol is the main stay treatment that would be helpful.
If the sugar level is during the day time then you do not have any worry and just cut down on extra weight for health purpose.
Wish you a great health!

my husband was diagnosed with hemochromotosis in June 2013, after 8 hospital stays and numerous test he now has liver failure, diabetes and stage D heart failure. His EF rate was betweeen 5-10% now at 20% according to latest Echo, but he can barely walk or talk without being winded. He is on the liver and transplant list as a 1B waiting at home on dobutomine, how long can one stay on the drug without damage to organs? The dr wants to do a right heart cath to measure pressures now sure why...thanks

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
