Get hgb a1c: The blood sugar is high within the normal range when fasting. The key fact is what happens after meals if the post para dial sugar goes up too high. One clue to that may be the glycosylated hemoglobin or A1C which will be high if that is the case. You may need to start medication in addition to diet and exercise and weight reduction of you are overweight. Metformin may prevent diabetes
