Although the lab put fasting glucose number above 99 is abnormal but recently HbA1C is more valuable in defining pre-diabetic condition and other complications due to diabetes mellitus. Your HbA1c is quite good so you should not worry about this condition and continue with a healthy life style and keep your body mass index in range if possible.
