FBG high: High FBG. You need HbA1c to see if you had DM due to pancrfeatic damage.

Prediabetes.: Normally speaking, this fasting blood sugar level will put you in a range that we would call prediabetes, condition which predisposes people to eventually develop diabetes. Your history of chronic pancreatitis put an interesting spin on this as we don't know the quantity and functionality of your insulin producing cells at this point. They should be monitored.
