My blood sugar was at 104, do I have diabetes ?

I am a 31 yr old male and my blood sugar was at 104. Does this mean I have diabetes? I exercise regulerly and try to eat right most of the time. I am curious about diabetes because my doctor explained to me that people whos blood level rise above 100 are more sucseptible to diabetes. She told me people who arent susceptible to diabetes can eat sweets and carbs all they want and their blood sugar never rises above 100.

blood sugar levels between 80 to 120mg/dl is considered to be normal, if the blood glucose is some were near the 135 mark than it  needs to be considered as borderline and needs further investigation to confirm and to initiate treatment
