If the values you reported are accurate, you should consult an endocrinologist for a glucose tolerance test. It is not likely that you have diabetes, other than the one glucose result higher than 200. If the glucose results were from a glucometer, those are not as accurate as plasma glucose done in an accredited lab.
Wish you good health!
