Brief Answer:
A single reading may not be enough

Detailed Answer:
Good day,
Noted your question. A fasting blood glucose value above 126 suggest diabetes. However, a single reading may not be sufficient to diagnose diabetes especially if you have nil symptoms. Kindly reconfirm by a fasting blood glucose ( atleast 8 hours fasting with no calories) and an HBA1c.
