Diabetes: This is consistent with diabetes. The 2 hour after challenge should be < 140. If 140-199, that's prediabetes. I'm not sure what you mean by "blood tests negative for diabetes." go back to your doctor and ask for a test called a1c. This will confirm and tell you the severity of the diabetes.

Abnormal: These results are definitely abnormal and reveal impaired glucose tolerance and probable diabetes. What was the fasting glucose and your a1c? Check w/your doctor re diet, exercise, education and possible medication.
