Fasting glucose: If your fasting glucose is 130, it is too high. If you are afraid that you are diabetic, have your physician order a hemoglobin 1ac and see what the result is. If it is in the diabetic range, consult that physician as to the steps you need to take to lower it. Good luck.

A normal A1C level is below 5.7 percent; 6.5 percent or above indicates diabetes; 5.7 to 6.4 percent is prediabetes, yours is 5.8. Speak to an endocrinologist about your case.

Go to this link: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/a1c-test/basics/results/prc-20012585 for verification that a Hb A1c level of 5.8 is pre-diabetic.
