No: If fasting for at least 8 hours fasting sugar 100-125 is pre-diabetes and 2-hrs after eating 140-199 is prediabetes. Fasting -126 and higher and 2 hours after eating= 200 and greater is diabetes can get home blood glucose testing equipment over the counter in pharmacies. then see MD if any of above apply
