Brief Answer:
Possibility of normal levels

Detailed Answer:
Good day,

Noted your concern.

With the history and reviewing your blood sugar profile , if you had done another blood test on 21 st May, the chances are that, your blood sugars would have been normal.
Please get a fasting glucose, Hba1c done. That would be more better to assess further.
Any family history of diabetes??
