Hi there.

You have not mentioned your age here. But the sugars are very much perfect for you. sugar reading going up from 102 to 105 can be part of lab error itself! may be your sugar is 100!! So do not pay attention to such small changes in sugar readings.
Make sure the diet changes are not made by you without consulting any Nutritionist as moderate amount of carbs are essential for the body and too much fibres are also not advised. Just follow the routine of balanced diet and then take readings as fasting, 2 hour post breakfast, 2 hour post lunch and 2 hour post dinner and let me know for further guidance. Take care.

The difference of few milligrams in blood sugar level doesn't make any difference and the values of 102 or 105 are as good as same.
Since your values of HBA1c are normal,there is no diabetes.However you should get blood sugar fasting and PP done for the exact blood sugar values.
Diabetes is said to be present if your fasting sugar levels are above 126 and PP levels are above 200.
Keep doing regular exercises and take good nutritious diet.
Avoid sugary foods and colas for long term good health of your self.
